Lewis Hamilton will have another Brit on the grid from next year when Lando Norris joins McLaren.
Hamilton has always had some advice for young drivers on the circuit, but has admitted that he won’t help Norris.
The Brit has conceded that he doesn’t necessarily help drivers because of their nationalities.
“I won’t give him advice. I don’t look at nationality. I don’t look at the grid and think it’s another Brit or another German.” Hamilton said.
How does it feel have another Brit on the grid? As a youngster, will you give Lando Norris advice?

Norris would have expected some help from Hamilton during his debut season, but with that being shot down by Lewis in today’s press conference, Norris was expectedly a little sad. And he didn’t shy away from showing that on social media, when he replied to the Sky Sports handle that had quoted Hamilton.

Lewis Hamilton has been a little busy the last few weeks with his Tommy Hilfiger commitments, but has admitted that he is focussed for this weekend, especially considering how close the title race is.
While Hamilton does have a healthy 30 point race, the performance and power of that Ferrari package is sure to pose a threat to Hamilton’s challenge.
Do you think Norris will be able to emulate Hamilton’s F1 career(despite it being too soon to call)?
