Lando Norris was left “gutted” after freak weather conditions took
away his chance for pole position for the São Paulo Grand Prix. The
McLaren driver was in contention for top spot after showing strong
pace throughout Friday’s running, joining the fight with Max
Verstappen and Ferrari duo Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. But
the tables turned as heavy wind and rain lashed the Interlagos
circuit midway through the only lap completed in Q3, with
Verstappen able to get his lap in before conditions deteriorated.
Norris was not as lucky, however, crossing the line seventh
fastest, though he will start sixth after a penalty for Mercedes’
George Russell. Addressing his qualifying performance, Norris said:
“It was great honestly, the car was amazing and probably quick
enough to be quickest today, so pretty gutted. “The car was was
amazing, it felt alive a lot in qualifying and easily good enough
to be quickest. “Obviously delivering the lap and putting it
together in Q3 and everything’s a different job. So another
disappointing Saturday.”
