Lando Norris of McLaren F1 says the first day of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix was ‘hectic’ and further needs to work for the next two days.
The young Briton had a poor performance on the Italian circuit in Imola, finishing 13th and 8th in the FP1 and FP2, respectively. Norris claimed to have issues with the radio and also the accidents on track affected his performance during the Friday practice.
A red flag calls an early end to FP2, bringing to a close our first day of practice at Imola.

Norris further talked about the first day in Imola on McLaren’s official site, “Tricky day, just because it was quite messy–not from our side necessarily, but because of the yellow flags, red flags and things like that. There were also a few problems with radio and things which again weren’t our fault, but made it a hectic session.”
Lando Norris and expectations for the Imola GP
The 21-year-old is one of the most promising young talents in Formula One, currently. He is already counted amongst the world’s top drivers. The young Brit recently proved his worth in the season-opener at Bahrain, finishing at P4.

However, the Italian circuit wasn’t kind to Norris, as the McLaren prodigy had several hurdles on Friday like the yellow and red flags. Further, the turns were also a little tricky for him and other drivers too.
The young driver also stated after the first day in Italy, the Woking-based team isn’t as positive they were after the Bahrain Grand Prix. Thus, they need to work hard for the next two days in Imola.
Lando Norris will again drive the MCL35M at the Autodrome Enzo e Dino Ferrari for the FP3 and qualifying sessions on Saturday, April 17. We might expect the McLaren prodigy to shine again at the Imola circuit on the race day, Sunday, April 18.
