McLaren driver Lando Norris has apologised for making “careless” comments about his Formula 1 opponents at the Portuguese Grand Prix.
Norris was involved in a collision with Lance Stroll during the race – for which the Racing Point driver was penalised – and dropped out of the top 10.
Post-race Norris suggested that Stroll “doesn’t seem to learn” as he pointed to the Canadian’s FP2 clash with Max Verstappen at the same corner.
Norris also commented on Lewis Hamilton’s record-breaking 92nd victory by saying that “he’s in a car which should win every race. He has to beat one or two other drivers and that’s it.
“Fair play to him, he’s still doing the job he has to do, but yeah, just another win for him.”
Norris, who failed to score for a third straight race due to his clash with Stroll, took to social media on Tuesday morning to apologise for his comments.
“I owe an apology,” Norris wrote on his personal account.
“I’ve been stupid and careless with some things I’ve said lately in media and interviews, and haven’t shown the respect I should have to certain people.
“I’m not that kind of person, so know I should apologise to them but also everyone reading/listening. Sorry.”
