Try to run with a P19 or P20, He’s never done that in his life: Lando Norris on Lewis Hamilton during the conference
Lando Norris managed to cross the line second in Budapest on Sunday during a beautiful Hungarian Grand Prix and with that, he was the only Briton to manage to finish on the podium.
These are good times for the team and Norris in Formula 1. After a particularly dismal start to the season, the Papaya Army has managed to massively reduce the gap to the front of the grid through a series of very successful improvements, which suddenly means that Norris and Oscar Piastri have been fighting for podium places rather than last places in recent races.

During the Hungarian Grand Prix, this resulted in a respectable second place for Norris.
After an excellent start, he overtook his compatriot Hamilton and never relinquished his second place. Max Verstappen is happy for his friend and points out in the press conference that he felt sorry for his generation mate at the beginning of the season.
“Some things are out of your control. To be honest, I felt sorry for you in the first few races, because it wasn’t fun to drive,” Verstappen says of Norris.
Those words ensure a spoiled Brit. However, he cannot resist making fun of his compatriot Hamilton, who was not present at the press conference due to his fourth-place finish in Budapest.
“It wasn’t, I know. Yesterday Lewis was complaining about how difficult it is to finish out first. Try to run with a P19 or P20. He’s never done that in his life. That’s the only thing Lewis hasn’t done in Formula 1,” he warned.
