Lando Norris mocks George Russell with Mercedes star 'annoyed' at F1 last-minute change


Share post:


Lando Norris took an opportunity to poke fun at close rival George Russell after qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix, with the Mercedes star perplexed at why F1 officials cut the fourth DRS zone for this weekend.

“He’s going to want DRS open every lap to save himself from getting a headache,” Norris joked on Sky Sports.

Russell was able to laugh of Norris’ comment, but added that he couldn’t understand why F1 officials took away the fourth DRS zone.

“It’s a bit annoying they took away that fourth one,” Russell added.

“I wasn’t pushing for it. It’s kind of counterintuitive because it was meant to have been done for safety reasons but DRS open through there reduces the porpoising and makes it safer so they’ve made it worse for us by reducing the DRS.

“That’s a bit annoying and probably won’t help the race but the aim is to try and beat this guy [Norris] and keep Sainz and Fernando behind.”
