“Just a bit of heartbreak, you know.”
Lando Norris had tears in his eyes as he reflected on what should have been his milestone day for all the right reasons. But Formula 1 in 2021 seems even more unpredictable than ever, as a driver finishing outside the top six became a bigger talking point than one taking a landmark 100th victory.
The McLaren driver was faultless on Saturday, and for much of Sunday too. He knew that pole wasn’t the best spot to be starting from, but he’d ticked off a first that was important to him. Next on the to-do list was the first win.
