McLaren F1 settles timidly

Lando Norris seemed unhappy with his first day despite finishing eighth in the Canadian Grand Prix FP2. The McLaren F1 driver, who is often discreet on Fridays, admitted that he had not had a simple day to mark his return to Montreal.

“It was a difficult day. I would say it’s positive because we did a lot of what we wanted to do, but not everything” says Norris. “We had some issues so I couldn’t ride as much as I wanted to. We’re a bit behind on some things, especially on the long stints.”

“Other than that the car is in pretty reasonable shape. Obviously we have some work to do with the much faster cars ahead of us. the second day.”

Ricciardo is happy to return to Canada

Daniel Ricciardo was happy to be able to return to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, the scene of his first victory in Formula 1 in 2014: “I really missed this track, after not being here for a few years. It’s so much fun. I just enjoyed it, I enjoyed driving. It’s brilliant, one of the best in my opinion.”

He finished both sessions of the day in the top 10: “I think we got into the rhythm quite quickly and showed encouraging signs. We’ll see what happens with the weather, I think we were lucky to have a dry first day, but we’ll see what happens tomorrow.”

“It could be completely different, but I think we had a solid start. Hopefully we can make some adjustments and find a bit more speed tonight. Overall it was a nice Friday. So I’m happy to be back here.”
