Lando Norris gives X-rated interview after first F1 win and beating Max Verstappen at Miami GP

Lando Norris didn’t just beat Max Verstappen at the Miami Grand Prix – he was 7.6 seconds ahead of the Red Bull which just could not keep up with the upgraded McLaren

As he crossed the finish line, Lando Norris let out a scream of equal parts delight and relief.

For the first time in his F1 career, at the 110th time of asking, the Briton became a race-winner. And his first words were for his race engineer Will Joseph, who confirmed to the 24-year-old that his boyhood dream had finally become a reality.

“We did it, Will!” Norris screamed, his delighted expression obvious even underneath his helmet. He stepped out of his McLaren to a roar of approval from the Miami crowd and got a big hug from his great friend Max Verstappen.

But he held Verstappen off heading into the first corner and never looked back from there. McLaren gave him a massive upgrade package for this weekend and the timing was perfect as Norris had the car he needed to not only match the race pace of the Red Bull, but better it.

“About time, huh?” He began in his post-race interview. He then dropped an F-bomb before apologising, aware he was speaking on live TV to millions around the globe.

Norris then said: “What a race. It’s been a long time coming but finally I’ve managed to do it. “I’m so happy for my whole team – I’ve finally delivered for them. It was a long day, a tough race, but I’m finally on top and over the moon.”
