Land Norris surpasses Grosjean with the most points scored without an F1 win[F1-Gate.com]

McLaren F1 team’s Lando Norris has overtaken Romain Grosjean for the list of drivers with the most points without winning a race in F1.

Lando Norris reached a total of 394 points by taking 7th place in the Italian GP F1. Nico Hulkenberg (521 points without winning a race) is just behind the record leader.

Last year, Lando Norris came close to winning his first race at Monza and Sochi, but in Sochi, sudden rain in the last few laps caused him to spin off the top and slide down.

However, unlike Nico Hulkenberg, Lando Norris’ best result was 2nd place, with six podium finishes in just three and a half years. Nico Hulkenberg has a full season of 9 years with a best result of 4th.

After the Italian Grand Prix, Lando Norris believed that the current McLaren has a faster pace than an Alpine and was optimistic about the possibilities in Singapore.

“I didn’t think we were that strong this weekend, especially in the race where we were a lot faster than Alpine, so there were a lot of positives,” explained Lando Norris.

“I think I’ve learned a few things in the last few weeks that will help me move in the right direction.

“I really enjoyed 2019, I feel I had a good race and I performed well. I don’t know if the car is working well.”
