Lando Norris has apologised for comments made in recent interviews, following his widely publicised remarks about rival drivers including Lewis Hamilton and Lance Stroll.
“I owe an apology,” said Norris today on social media. “I’ve been stupid and careless with some things I’ve said lately in media and interviews, and haven’t shown the respect I should have to certain people.
“I’m not that kind of person, so know I should apologise to them but also everyone reading [or] listening. Sorry.”
Norris criticised Stroll over the collision between the pair during Sunday’s race, which the stewards held the Racing Point driver responsible for. Having previously apologised for his furious, expletive-stream reaction to the crash on the radio, Norris said Stroll hadn’t learn from his collision with Max Verstappen in practice two days earlier and “doesn’t seem to learn with anything he does.”
The McLaren driver also appeared dismissive of Hamilton’s record-breaking 92nd grand prix win last weekend, saying it “doesn’t mean anything to me” as the Mercedes driver has “a car which should win every race”.
