The British McLaren driver said he did not feel fit in Spain last Saturday. A little later, the English racing team confirmed that Lando Norris was suffering from tonsillitis – also known as tonsillitis. After a tough Grand Prix, Norris finished eighth in Barcelona. Due to the extreme heat in Spain, the racing talent clearly had a difficult time on the starting grid shortly before the race. Although F1 drivers are required to report to the press after the race, Norris was allowed to skip media activity. He was also allowed to miss Friday’s press conference in Monaco so Norris could focus on his recovery.
The first practice session in Monte Carlo is now complete. The Brit set the fifth fastest time behind Ferrari and Red Bull and was a tenth faster than team-mate Daniel Ricciardo. McLaren team boss Andreas Seidl said the team worked hard to ensure Norris was as fit as possible for Monaco. Although he hasn’t fully recovered yet, Seidl believes he can just be there all weekend.
“After the Barcelona race it was important to give him enough time to recover,” Seidl answered a question from Motorsport.com† “Our team doctor and his personal trainer helped him a lot. They made sure he left the box with as much energy as possible for the first session. And that’s what happened. He’s probably not 100 percent yet.” , but it’s going to be a while. much better. I don’t expect any problems for the rest of the weekend.”
