“I would love to do it at some point”– Formula 1 drivers migrating to IndyCar is usual, and Lando Norris is also interested in joining it.
McLaren sees a future with Lando Norris, and that is why the 22-year-old race driver has entered into the third season of his Formula 1 career at such a young age.
Norris, who is enjoying his time in F1, has also spoken about his interest in the IndyCar and expressed his desire to race in the Indy 500 if fate allows.
“I watch it for sure,” Norris, who was a guest pundit on Sky Sports’ coverage on Sunday, told RACER. “Normally, it’s the Monaco weekend. I watch it; I watch as many of the IndyCar races as I can. ”
Despite showing his interest in Indycar racing, he has maintained that he needs to focus on F1 right now and consider it in the future.
“At the moment it’s not something I want to go and do right now, I’d rather just focus on (F1), but it’s something to think about in the future. I would love to do it at some point, but not at the moment.”
Indy 500 is tougher than Monaco.
The historical significance of Indy500 and Monaco GP is at par, but Norris feels that overall from a drivers’ standpoint, the former is more entertaining.
“It’s also the history that makes it so special,” he said. “In my eyes, I’d rather win a championship than win Monaco. The amazing thing about winning Monaco is its history because if you’re on pole and can lead into Turn 1, it’s almost like a guaranteed win in a way, so it’s not like you do anything incredible to win.
“(At) Indy, you have to do something more incredible to win with your strategy, your fuel, and things like that. Monaco not so much, but what makes it special is the history of Monaco.”
“I’m not as much of a fan of the history of the sport, but you just want to win because it’s Monaco. I think Indy’s more like a prestigious event that people look forward to because it’s so unique and so different to anything else you normally see. So it is something I’d like to do.”
