As they stood on the track, the comedian asked Lando how did the track feel. Not satisfied with his reply, Corden and Norris bent down towards the track. “Let’s really feel it. Let’s get down and really feel it. Put yourself in the level of the car,” said the Englishman.

“It’s quite warm,” replied the McLaren driver, who certainly felt the heat of the sunshine state.

Corden did not stop there. He hilariously requested Lando to talk to the track. Of course, being one of the funniest drivers on the grid, the 22-year-old certainly carried on and spoke with the track.

“I’m Lando. I’m warm, but I’m getting on top of you later,” he hysterically replied, to which Corden said, “Make it more of a friendship. You got to trust the track and let the track trust you. You are gonna lie down and tell the track a secret. Tell a secret that no one knows.”

Fans might want to take note of the secret the young Brit revealed. Lying down on the track, he conveyed, “I failed my first two drivers test. I told my mom and dad, I passed the first time.”

“I killed a clown in a kids’ party at 1996,” said Corden. The English actor certainly had a darker secret than Norris. The conversation was funny and extremely amusing, without a doubt. However, unfortunately for Lando, he was forced to retire early after a collision with Gasly.

Twitter reacts to Corden and Norris’ amusing track walk.

Of course, Twitter had a say. After all, this could be one of the most entertaining track walks of all time. Some believe the track ultimately did not trust Norris despite him revealing a secret.
