Norris had a problem with a wheel nut at his pit stop during the race, which eliminated his chances of competing for a podium. Overall, the Brit managed to earn a fourth-place finish, just one step short of the podium.
Norris comments post-race, "A bit of a frustrating race, but also a lot of positives and in the end I’m happy with the result."
He continues, "I would've loved to have a chance to fight for P3 – the pit-stop meant we weren't able to, but I don’t really think it would've changed the end result.
He adds, "A good job by the whole team and thanks to them for giving me a great car this weekend."
He concludes, "Fourth and fifth for us is a great result and now for one more race before the summer break. We’ll keep it up and try to do better next time."
When talking about how it feels to be racing back at home with fans in the grandstands he comments, "It was lovely to see all the fans in the grandstands – it made it a lot more special, and seeing them all waving and cheering on the in-lap was cool as well. Thanks to all of them for coming out to support and making it a more enjoyable and special weekend – hopefully we'll see them again soon."
