Lando Norris Secures Maiden F1 Victory in Miami Grand Prix Amidst Rivals’ Praise



Who is considered F1's favorite champion? The response from competitors to Lando Norris' inaugural win

Competitors lavished accolades on the McLaren racer, Lando Norris, following his highly anticipated initial victory in Formula 1, which occurred in Miami.

Lando Norris emerged as the latest Formula 1 champion, securing an unexpected win at the Miami Grand Prix.

The driver from McLaren took advantage of a perfectly timed Safety Car intervention to seize the lead, then widened the gap from Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in the last 25 laps, clinching his first ever grand prix victory to widespread acclaim.

Norris has become the 21st British racer to secure a victory, marking him as Formula 1's 114th unique victor – achieving this milestone on his 110th try.

Here's a look at how competitors of the 24-year-old British driver responded to his first major victory…

Max Verstappen expressed his joy for Lando, saying, "I'm truly pleased for him. He's been waiting for this moment for quite some time. And this certainly won't be his final victory. He earned it today."

Charles Leclerc expressed his joy for Lando, stating, "I'm genuinely pleased for Lando. Despite our competitive nature and desire to outperform one another, witnessing such a range of emotions in a rival is always an emotional experience."

"We've all matured alongside each other. I recall observing Lando during his time in KF3, and we collectively harbored the aspiration to one day become Formula One drivers."

Carlos Sainz expressed, "In my view, Lando has earned a victory for quite some time. His driving has been outstanding, and it's about time he achieved it.

"Clearly, I'm pleased for him, yet there's a sense of frustration because we were leading him until that pit stop right before the Safety Car came out. Had we delayed our pit stop by just one more lap, we could have pitted during the Safety Car period, which likely would have secured our victory in the race. However, I believe fortune favors those who earn it, and Lando is certainly someone who deserved a bit of good fortune this weekend."

"Lando has consistently performed at a championship level across numerous consecutive races. He's rightfully earned a victory. Whether by chance or skill, it's irrelevant. He's a victor, and it's high time he was recognized as such."

Lewis Hamilton expressed his joy for Lando Norris, stating, "It's truly delightful to see Lando clinch his first Grand Prix victory. Having begun my career at McLaren, it's heartwarming to witness the team's return to prominence after such an extended period."

George Russell

"Many believe he should have won a race long before now. In an era where one team and driver have largely dominated Formula 1, it’s refreshing to see a different driver finally have the opportunity to clinch a win."

"Congratulations to Lando on securing his first victory after numerous podium finishes. I'm genuinely pleased for him. I hope he cherishes this moment – the beginning of many more triumphs to come."

Oscar Piastri expressed his delight for both Norris and the entire team, emphasizing that their progress over the past year has rightfully led them to this achievement.

Daniel Ricciardo expressed genuine joy for his colleague, stating, "I'm truly delighted for him. It's a moment of genuine pride to witness his first victory. Sharing a team creates a special bond, which makes this even more significant. His skill and potential were always apparent, signaling that his success was just a matter of time. Despite the unpredictable nature of the sport, it seemed inevitable that he would celebrate a win like this eventually. I'm overjoyed to see him enjoy such a remarkable day."
