Lando Norris points out two things that made Max Verstappen world champion

As reported by Express.co.uk, Lando and Max are good friends off the track and enjoy each other’s company. Norris mentioned a few points that tipped the title in Verstappen’s favor over Hamilton in 2021.

“I don’t think he had a better car throughout the season. Mercedes had the stronger car in most cases, but he (Verstappen) had less bad luck and made fewer mistakes as a driver,” said Norris.

“I’m happy for him. I congratulate him on what he has done this season. He’s taken on Lewis, who is much more experienced and has won many titles. He’s (Verstappen) a good friend of mine.

I congratulated him first, but then I also went to Lewis because he also had an incredible season and did a lot of things right to become champion. I respect both of them a lot,” said Norris.
