Piastri and Lando are sure to put McLaren on the map

With their skill, determination, and relentless dedication, these two young talents are set to lead McLaren to the forefront of motorsport success.

Oscar Piastri is joining forces with Lando Norris, and he's quite excited about it. There is no doubt that the two will merge and form an unbeatable tag-team, taking McLaren up the ladder of success. 

Piastri just joined McLaren, while on the other hand, Norris has really established himself well in the team and generally within the sport. Interviewed by In The Fast Lane podcast hosts on this recent partnership, Piastri commented, “I don’t know Lando that well. I’ve spoken to him a couple of times very briefly, and we’ve got a few mutual friends in common. But yes, I’m looking forward to getting to know him, both personally and professionally. I think our junior careers have been quite similar. He’s obviously proven as well in F1 that he’s a very capable driver and a strong driver as well. “I’m looking forward to being able to show what I have, but also there’s undoubtedly going to be things to learn along the way, and I think Lando’s a very strong teammate to be able to learn from. I think it’ll be a good working relationship." 

He added on saying, “We’re both quite similar in age, we’ve got a few friends in common as I said, so I’m confident that we’ll be able to work well together and hopefully bring the whole team more towards the front of the grid that’s the aim.” 

It is quite evident that Piastri is optimistic that together with Lando, they will definitely put McLaren on the map once again. 

“A lot of McLaren’s history and quite a lot of their winning and championships was either when I was very young or wasn’t born at all, so, of course, that’s something I want to hopefully with the rest of the team try and get back to those ways, and get back further towards the front,” said Piastri. “It’s something that I do have at the back of my mind, that I’m joining a very prestigious team, with a lot of success, and a great pedigree that’s exciting. Ultimately, they offered me a fantastic opportunity to be on the F1 grid. I think the team is very motivated to try and get back further towards the front, as am I. I don’t want to be in F1 to make up the numbers, I want to do as well as I can and hopefully win a few things along the way."

“I think, for me, that’s the biggest thing I’m looking forward to firstly... getting on the grid, but also trying to write a new chapter of success for myself and also for the team.
