Speaking about his renewal, Norris commented:

It’s a great feeling to be staying in papaya.I’ve grown up with McLaren and feel at home here — the team are like family to me. The journey so far has been exciting; we’ve had ups and downs, but last season showed our desire to get back to competing at the front of the grid. The work Zak [Brown, CEO], Andrea [Stella, team principal] and the whole team have put in over the last year has been incredible and I’m confident in challenging for wins with McLaren. I’m excited to create more amazing memories and continue working hard with everyone at MTC for the next few years.

Andrea Stella, Team Principal, McLaren, said:

I’m pleased to confirm the extension of our partnership with Lando on a multi-year contract beyond 2025. This reflects the commitment and confidence we have together, with our shared ambition to ultimately win championships again in the future. Lando has grown as a driver and a person since initially joining McLaren in 2017. He impressed last season, playing an important role in our progress throughout the year, securing seven podiums with many fantastic drives. Alongside Oscar, our exciting driver pairing will play an instrumental part in our objective to move towards the front of the grid. They have impressed in their first season together and I’m looking forward to continuing the hard work with them both on this exciting journey.

Zak Brown, CEO, McLaren Racing, said:

[There’s no end date announced] because it’s our business. Sometimes you discuss it, sometimes you don’t. Last time when we discussed it, it was a bit more unusual I think typically, just as Ferrari has announced with Charles [Leclerc], you don’t typically give many details, so we see no reason to advertise any details of anyone’s contract.
