We finally found out how good Lando Norris is in 2023. The Briton had never had a front-running car to show what the likes of contemporaries George Russell and Charles Leclerc had demonstrated; once McLaren transformed its MCL60 machine at mid-season, Norris rose with it.

For much of the second half of 2023, his McLaren seemed the only ‘challenger’ – note inverted commas – to Max Verstappen’s parade to another pole, another win, another stat smashed.

So what are the next steps? A win is the obvious one, and soon – if only to remove his name from the list of nearly-men who amassed double-digit podiums without standing on the top step. Staying on top of an ascendent Oscar Piastri within his own team will be a challenge. And beating himself up for his mistakes a little less publicly, lest that admirable ownership of his errors become something Verstappen et al can exploit.
