Norris reacts to Hamilton’s new deal: ‘It’s always been a pleasure to race him'
“Mercedes announced on Thursday that Lewis Hamilton will be staying with the team until the end of the 2025 season, and will be partnered with George Russell. This means Hamilton will continue racing in Formula 1 well into his 40s, much like fellow world champion Fernando Alonso. Lando Norris, giving his reaction to the news, expressed his pleasure in racing against Hamilton, who he considers one of the greatest drivers in F1 history. Norris also mentioned that Hamilton has been someone he looked up to since he was a child. Valtteri Bottas, Hamilton’s former teammate, stated that he wasn’t surprised by the decision, as Hamilton still has the passion and drive to compete at the highest level.”
