Here is how Lando Norris reacted to a troll asking him “when are you going to get your first win” with the video of him showing the middle finger viral

At the Australian Grand Prix, after securing yet another podium finish, Lando Norris responded bluntly to a troll. During the early hours of Sunday morning, Norris, 24, secured the third position at the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit. While Norris was returning to his McLaren squad, a sly fan yelled, “Lando, when are you going to get your first win?”

With a cheeky middle finger directed towards the fan, the Bristol-born 24-year-old whirled around to face the audience.

Meanwhile, Andrea Stella, the head of McLaren F1, believes that it was pure performance, not strategy, that separated Lando Norris and Charles Leclerc. Even though he outqualified Leclerc and led him early in the race, Norris was eventually defeated by the Ferrari driver for second place.

Following the race, Norris believed that McLaren was outclassed by Ferrari at Albert Park in terms of strategy. He talked about his pace being “good all weekend.” Stella clarified that McLaren was “aggressive” in their strategy decisions on Sunday, emphasising their choice to stop Oscar Piastri concurrently with Leclerc.

Despite noting that Ferrari was just faster in Australia, Stella believes the company will be even more competitive at Suzuka the following time around.

Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz won the race for the first time this season without winning a Red Bull race. He did this by taking advantage of a technical issue that prompted Max Verstappen to retire in the first few laps.

Verstappen began the race intending to equal the record for the most victories in a row by converting his pole position advantage, but he soon reported having problems with his car. A compromised second lap allowed Sainz to close the gap and take the lead.

After that, Verstappen’s problems with his brakes worsened, and he pulled off the racing line to let the rest of the race to pass him. Verstappen then returned to the pits and retired for the first time in two years, with plumes of smoke pouring out of the back of his RB20.
