McLaren F1 driver Lando Norris put in some remarkable performances in Formula One last season. Norris secured four podiums in the 2021 campaign and also scored a total of 160 points, which was more than his previous two seasons combined. After ending the season sixth on the championship grid, Norris has suggested that 2021 was his best season so far.

Norris said (h/t F1):

“It’s definitely been, I would say, my best season so far, which is always a good thing when I’m only in my third season. I think I’ve achieved a lot, done well for the team and been there for the team when we’ve had those chances to be on the podium and score the points and bring that fight to Ferrari for as long as possible. I think from my side, and even for us as a team, it’s been a very good year and we should be happy with what we’ve done.”

The future certainly looks bright for the 22-year-old as he continues to build a name for himself in the sport of Formula One moving forward.
