‘Today was my day’: Lando Norris proud to win first Grand Prix – video

Lando Norris ended Max Verstappen’s crushing winning streak by claiming the maiden victory of his career in the Miami Grand Prix. In his 110th Formula One appearance, the 24-year-old from Bristol, who started fifth, took advantage of a safety car period at the Hard Rock Stadium to move ahead of Verstappen before holding his nerve to take the chequered flag. An emotional Norris crossed the line seconds clear of Verstappen, who had no answer to the British driver’s brilliant drive as he claimed McLaren’s first victory in nearly three years. After the race Norris joked: ‘Today was my day, I was like, gonna throw the safety car now, and it all worked out perfectly so, whoever that person was, I thank them, and I share my trophy and champagne with them.’
