Norris satisfied by recovery from “worst start of my career” | RaceFans Round-up

In the round-up: Lando Norris said he made the worst start of his career in the Turkish Grand Prix, and was pleased to finish in the points afterwards.

What they say

Norris finished eighth despite his poor start:

It was the worst start of my career. I didn’t move, initially. Then I hit anti-stall, I don’t know what happened, just everything went wrong.

It was just very difficult to overtake for the first half of the race, I was just stuck behind. Nobody it’s like that in the dry, you’re losing a lot of downforce, a lot of grip. But here because there’s only one line to really use it was very difficult to pass or to do any different lines or anything like that. So you just got a bit boxed in and stuck.

But as soon as I went into clean air the car was really nice to drive. I set fastest lap and had really good pace the last two stints, the two intermediate stints. So I’m happy, I feel I did a good job, we recovered well from yesterday. It’s just a shame I had such a bad start because it could have been something more.
