Norris wants to help Ricciardo achieve common goals

Lando Norris admits he is doing everything in his power to help his new teammate Daniel Ricciardo adjust to the MCL35M, and stresses that he is needed to beat Ferrari. The Briton shared all his data with the Australian and explained it widely in meetings in order for the Australian to get the most out of the car.

Ricciardo's first part of the 2021 season was extremely difficult as the Australian failed to adjust to McLaren and is far from his best version. Norris is largely ahead of his team-mate, the points advantage is double on the British side, and the Australian’s poorer performance has limited the team in some races.

However, Lando admits to addressing him and talking openly about his feelings, but he also shared his details with the 32-year-old. "I do not know how else I can help him. I told him how I was feeling, and he even has all my data and can look at what I’m doing.

I say things very well in meetings. I will not lie, "Norris told Formula 1 News. Norris makes it clear that he wants Ricciardo to achieve good results, as his performance is very important to McLaren if they want to beat Ferrari in the fight for third place.

The special way of working

The Briton assures that he did everything he could to help him, but reminds him that each driver has his own special way of working. "Obviously, I want him to do well because we need his results for the constructors' championship."

We want to win the fight against Ferrari, and in order to do that, he has to do well, "he added. "There is nothing more I can do to help him, he is another driver in the end. Every driver works differently and feels different things.

What I feel is also different and I'm just focused on myself, "said Lando Norris. Norris seems to be maximally motivated and has a huge desire for a good result, which can be seen in his performance. Obviously, Ricciardo is not doing very well, but Norris obviously wants to achieve his goal and help his colleague as much as possible.

They are aware that they will not have an easy task, but they are also both top drivers and if they are in top form, it is unlikely that they will be prevented from achieving that goal. We will see if Ferrari is better or Ricciardo-Norris will show that they are dangerous opponents
