What they say

Norris was asked if he was surprised to pass Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari at the start of the race at the Circuit of the Americas:

Well, they started on mediums and I guess it’s always a slight disadvantage.

But this weekend we’ve been the closest ever to the pace of the front-runners. Carlos [Sainz Jnr] was eight tenths off and I was one second off so our relative. The gap’s coming down slightly and that gives us the opportunity to do something like this.

So it wasn’t like we just got them off the line. It was on the first lap but still it was not just by getting lucky. It was [that] we had a slight pace advantage being on the softer tyre and I made the most of that.

So it was good fun. I mean, that’s what we like doing. And it’s even better knowing we’re in a much slower car and we’re getting past the Ferrari. So I’m happy we’re making steady progress, but it’s it’s rewarding to see something like that.
