Despite the present economic downturn, one of motorsport’s top teams, McLaren, has demonstrated its resolute assurance that the sport is still a viable and competitive industry. Lando Norris, one of their star drivers, recently announced that he is confident the organisation is well-positioned to weather the storm.
Far from panicking, Norris has attested to McLaren’s strength, opining that the squad “has been through a lot of tough times and come out of them, so I’m sure it will be no different this time”. The 20-year-old Briton is clearly undaunted by the slump, as he declared that McLaren is “really well set up to make sure the best decisions are taken in the right areas”.
Norris is clearly buoyed by the organisation’s in-house capabilities, noting that McLaren has “a very capable team of people” and is “always trying to develop and improve”. He is further bolstered by the fact that the team is “very open to new ideas and different ways of doing things”.
The young driver is also confident that the team can stay ahead of its rivals, believing that McLaren will “continue to be at the forefront of Formula 1” for the foreseeable future. He is confident that the organisation can “capitalise on the situation” and remain an industry leader.
Overall, Norris is adamant that the team is well-equipped to handle the current crisis, and will come out on top. As he put it, “McLaren is always going to be in a position to make sure it is in the best possible place when the time comes to compete”. Indeed, McLaren’s attitude towards the present economic woes is resolutely optimistic.
