Norris Reflects on Crucial 'Little Mistake' Impacting Iconic British GP Pole Bid

P1racenews AI automatic summary:

Lando Norris is the third of three Britons on the grid after taking third in qualifying at Silverstone.

Lando Norris expressed regret over a small error in Q3 that prevented him from securing pole position at the historic British Grand Prix. The front row will be shared by Mercedes teammates George Russell and Lewis Hamilton, with Norris lining up behind them, marking the first time since 1968 that three British drivers occupy the top three grid slots. Following the initial Q3 runs, Norris was narrowly behind provisional pole-sitter Russell but dropped to third place when he had to abandon his lap due to a mistake at Turn 3. Despite the setback, Norris is optimistic about his chances against his fellow Brits, emphasizing his satisfaction with P3. George Russell’s pole position made him the ninth British driver to achieve this feat at the British GP and the first since Damon Hill in 1996, breaking Mercedes’ tie with Ferrari for the most front-row lock-outs in history. Looking ahead to the race, Norris is hopeful for rain as he believes it will enhance his competitive edge against Russell and Hamilton, expressing excitement for potentially intense battles on the track.
