At the Dutch Grand Prix, Norris returned to the points with a 10th-place finish. After the race, Sky Sports interviewed him to sum up his race, and while mentioning the impact of wind on his race, he made an edgy error in his description.

He said, “When the wind was as gusty, and blowy as it was today. Blowy wasn’t a word. It’s blew as strong as it was today.”

Although the reporter assured him it was a word, Norris was more concerned about the reactions that could come in later. “Yeah I know. It’s just that it’s going to get clipped to something,” said the Briton.

Following this, Norris tried to continue with his answer. However, he couldn’t hold back his laughter from his impromptu choice of words earlier. While the moment would probably not feature in an F1 montage video, expect fans to send in more comical reactions in the coming days.

However, he suffered a stunning DNF in the Hungarian Grand Prix after Valtteri Bottas crashed into him, which ended his scoring streak. After a three-week summer break, Norris suffered a heavy crash during qualifying at the Belgian Grand Prix.

This led to him incurring a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change. With rain preventing a proper race from taking place, the Briton failed to score points once again. Despite scoring a point, Norris fell behind in the driver’s championship as Bottas finished on the podium in Zandvoort.
