Lando Norris has signed a new multi-year deal to continue racing for McLaren.

The 21-year-old Briton has made a flying start to his third season of F1 at the team and is fourth in the Drivers’ Championship after the opening four races.

Norris, who first joined McLaren’s young driver programme in 2017, claimed his second career podium at Imola last month.

“I’m really pleased to have extended my relationship with McLaren from 2022,” said Norris.

“Having been with the team for almost five years, I feel very much part of the family here and I couldn’t imagine starting the next phase of my career anywhere else. McLaren has been a huge support since my days in junior series and I’ve really enjoyed learning and developing as a driver since.

“My commitment to McLaren is clear: my goal is to win races and become Formula 1 world champion and I want to do that with this team. Since joining in 2017 our progression has been consistent and we have clear ambitions together for the future.

“I want to say thank you to Zak and Andreas for the belief they’ve shown in me since the beginning, and to the whole team for giving me such a strong environment to continue my career in. We’ve already had some incredible moments together which I’ll never forget – two podiums and securing P3 in the championship – and together with Daniel and the rest of the team I’m looking forward to pushing for even more success in the years to come.”

New team-mate Daniel Ricciardo is in the first year of his own multi-year deal, meaning McLaren’s driver line-up is settled for the foreseeable future as the former world champions aim to continue closing down the gap to the top two teams after finishing third in the standings in 2020.

McLaren hold third again so far this season.
