A contagious smile took over Lando Norris’s face during the post-race media sessions. His journey to his first Formula One victory has indeed been a long one. Joining the F1 grid in 2019 at just 19 years old, Norris has come close to victory a number of times, only to be thwarted by minor errors or factors beyond his control. This time, however, nothing could stand in his way as he aced the Miami Grand Prix.

The Long-Awaited Triumph

Since joining McLaren in his debut season, Norris has worked tirelessly to improve his performance. With over 6,000 laps under his belt, a pole position, and 15 podium finishes, his first win was a well-deserved achievement. As each driver stopped for media interviews, the consensus was clear: it was about time.
