Lando Norris ‘MIGHT challenge me for the world title’, claims Max Verstappen… as Red Bull star doubts his chances in Monaco this weekend


  • Max Verstappen has won five out of seven races so far in the 2024 F1 season
  • Lando Norris won his first race at the Miami Grand Prix earlier this month
  • Verstappen claimed the Briton could challenge him for the world title this year

Max Verstappen believes Lando Norris can challenge him for the World Championship, possibly starting with victory in Monaco this weekend.

The moribund title race has heated up, with Norris winning for McLaren at Miami earlier in the month and chasing Verstappen to the checkered flag at Imola last week. He finished less than a second behind the defending champion in a brilliant late fightback.

Although Norris is 60 points behind Verstappen, he has 17 races to close the deficit. «Lando is really in the mix,» said the Dutchman.

«He’s a few points down, but if they suddenly start winning, it can turn around quite quickly.»

«It’s closed, so it’s very important to be at our best. Imola got off to a bad start and we managed to turn it around, but I wouldn’t want to experience a weekend like that again.»

«It’s a different track and not our best because our car struggles off the curbs and at low speed,» he added.
