What a lap from Lando Norris today The McLaren driver managed to sneak himself into the final moments of a chaotic Australian GP quali, which is made even more impressive when you consider the team’s recent dip in form.
“A very good result for us,” he told F1, all smiles. “It feels like a pole position in some ways from where we have been in the last few weekends.
“To just scrape into Q2 in Bahrain and then to miss out in Q3 in Saudi and now to be almost all the way up there, I guess still a long way off the pace, but position wise to be a lot further up is nice to see.
“A good reward for myself, a good reward for the team. Happy. Whether or not the car has made much progress or not is hard to say.”
Both Norris and his teammate Daniel Ricciardo made Q3 today and will hope to get a valuable haul of points around the Albert Park circuit on Sunday.
