Living up to the hype in fine style, Lando Norris produced an exceptional performance in Bahrain on his way to a very impressive points finish for McLaren.
Norris had something of a difficult end to his 2018 Formula Two season, losing a championship that many thought was his to win at the beginning of the season, but that small issue aside, the young Englishman came to Formula One with plenty of hype following his signing to the once great McLaren team.
Having now firmly started the rebuilding process back in Woking, an improved McLaren car is giving the driver plenty of opportunity to shine in front of the Formula One fans, something he is doing with great style so far this season - showing the way to his more experienced team mate Carlos Sainz in the second car.

Having once again qualified in the top ten, Norris drove a strong and mature race to finish well within the points paying positions, giving himself yet more well deserved plaudits from teams and fans alike - adding further proof that he could well be a driver well worth watching closely in the years ahead..
