Lindo Norris has apologized for slashing Lewis Hamilton’s record after a record six-time world champion victory in Portugal’s Grand Prix.
Hamilton surpassed Michael Schumacher’s record of 91 runs in Sunday’s win in Portima.
However, Hamilton’s success did not come as a surprise to British F1 driver Norris, who suggested that the 35-year-old Mercedes win every race and had only limited competition. Norris also criticized Lance Troll of Racing Point after the collision.
I apologize for being stupid and careless with some of the things I have said recently in the media and interviews, and not showing my respect for some people. I’m not that kind of person, so I know I should apologize to them, but everyone who reads / listens. Sorry
– Lando Norris (LandoNoris) October 27, 2020
The 20-year-old has since apologized for his comments, saying he was “stupid and reckless” and did not show full respect.
He wrote on Twitter: “I apologize. I’ve been stupid and careless with some of the things I’ve said in the media and in interviews recently and and I haven’t shown the respect I should have for some people.
“I’m not that kind of person, so I know I should apologize to them, but to everyone who reads / listens. Sorry
Speaking after Sunday’s race to Norris, Resfens said of Hamilton: “I’m happy for him, nothing more.
“It simply doesn’t make sense to me. He’s in a car that must win every race, really.
“He just has to hit one or two other drivers, that’s all.” Play well with him, he’s still doing what he has to do. “
The McLaren driver also commented on Stroll after the couple’s collision in Portugal, but later apologized on the radio for swearing in the Canadian. Stroll was fined five times and two points on his license for the incident.
Norris said: “I don’t know what he was doing. He went to the left, I didn’t know where he was, really.
“He went to the left, which surprised me when he could easily enter. And I was easily halfway there, he just gets in. “
