Lando Norris says he is expecting Lewis
Hamilton and Max Verstappen to battle it out for the Formula One
championship in the upcoming season.
Verstappen could well prove to be one of Hamilton's main rivals
for the 2020 World Championship title and Norris would love to see them
go head-to-head throughout the year.
Asked to compare the two drivers, Norris thinks Verstappen is "more
of a racer" which is sure to spark debate ahead of the new season.
"Max is more of a racer than Lewis," Norris told PA Sport.
"He wins by making those moves and puts everything on the line.
"Lewis has spent a lot of years against decent drivers. He is very
good in qualifying. He nails the laps and then he nails the race. But
you never see him making these amazing overtakes - probably because he
is always at the front - yet you see that from Max.
"Both drivers have strengths, albeit in slightly different areas. It
would be great to see them go head-to-head this year. They are the two
that are proving themselves at the moment."
Norris also had praise for Mercedes and the way that they continue to
push the boundaries, yet can't help but feel their domination is making
the sport "boring".
"I know a lot of people who don't watch Formula One because all they
see is a Mercedes winning and it looks boring from the outside," Norris
"I hope it doesn't happen this year, but it is likely it will. It is a shame and it is bad but what can you do about it?
"There are so many little things that Mercedes have worked so hard
on, like the steering wheel. They come up with these ideas which are
just insane and you have to say hats off.
"Everyone else needs to do a better job and catch up."
