F1 driver Lando Norris made a striking entrance at the iconic Casino de Monte-Carlo in Monaco, a renowned hotspot not only for its extravagant cars but also for its bustling gambling and entertainment scene. However, Norris chose to turn heads by arriving at the casino in a true automotive masterpiece – the Lamborghini Miura.
Presumably heading home after a delightful dinner, Norris gracefully stepped into his Royal Blue Lamborghini Miura. This automobile is celebrated as the pioneering supercar, featuring a robust 430 HP V12 engine and hailing from the years 1966 to 1973. What’s truly intriguing is that Norris seemed to have gone the extra mile to ensure that the Miura’s interior color harmonized with the vibrant McLaren Racing Orange.
“Another amazing day for us, P2 and a P3, so couldn’t have asked for any more. The team did an amazing job.
“My start was very good, I almost had Max but Max is Max as well, so I didn’t have another chance into Turn Two. I tried.
“The pace was extremely strong today, compared to everyone and I mean, we’re not close to Max, but we’re not miles away either.”
Norris, in recent times, has found ample cause for celebration, particularly following his impressive second-place finish at Suzuka, marking a spectacular double podium achievement for McLaren. This remarkable feat signifies his fourth podium appearance and fourth time clinching the runner-up position this season. The Japanese Grand Prix witnessed the British-Belgian racing sensation’s assertive proclamation that McLaren was gearing up to challenge the dominance of Red Bull.
In a conversation with former F1 champion Damon Hill after the race, Norris candidly stated:
“We’re pushing, we’re getting there.
“The progress we’ve made is pretty outstanding. So like I said, I’m very proud of the team and the steps forward we’re making every weekend.
“I’m sure there’s gonna be some tough times to come but we’re getting to step by step.”
