Lando Norris has committed his future to McLaren by signing a new multi-year contract extension with the British Formula 1 team run by American Zak Brown.
“I’m really pleased to have extended my relationship with McLaren from 2022,” said Norris. “Having been with the team for almost five years, I feel very much part of the family here and I couldn’t imagine starting the next phase of my career anywhere else. McLaren has been a huge support since my days in junior series and I’ve really enjoyed learning and developing as a driver since.
“My commitment to McLaren is clear: my goal is to win races and become Formula 1 world champion and I want to do that with this team. Since joining in 2017 our progression has been consistent and we have clear ambitions together for the future.”
McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown said: “I’m delighted with the extension of our agreement with Lando for 2022 and beyond.
“He’s been instrumental in our return of form here at McLaren and we’re proud of the growth he’s shown since he first started with us back in 2017.
“Lando is one of the brightest talents on the Formula 1 grid and we look forward to seeing him continue to go from strength-to-strength both on and off track.”
McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl added it was a “very straightforward” decision.
“Lando has impressed us since his rookie year with his performances, and his evolution as a driver since then has been clear protégé since 2017 and made his F1 debut with McLaren in 2019.
“He’s an integral part of our performance recovery plan and his record so far, securing two podiums with the team over the past year, has shown he’s a formidable competitor on track.
“Like him, we have strong ambitions for our future together and I’m pleased we’re continuing this journey for both Lando and the team.
“In Lando and Daniel we have a hugely talented and exciting driver line-up, and this announcement is a strong signal of commitment to the next chapter for McLaren from 2022 onwards.”
