Bristol-born Norris clinches F1 podium finish

Congratulations to Lando Norris, who finished third in the Austrian Formula 1 Grand Prix last Sunday.

The Bristol-born 20 year-old, who drives with McLaren, became the third youngest podium finisher of all-time (behind Max Verstappen and Lance Stroll), and set his first career fastest lap on the last lap.

He also becomes the youngest ever Brit to stand on a Formula 1 podium.

"I think we knew we'd be strong," Lando said. "But the whole weekend really, from qualifying on Saturday to the race on Sunday, it was all a bit unexpected. But I'll take it. I tried hard. I didn't give up in the race. And I got the podium on the very final lap. I couldn't be happier with what we achieved in our first race."

Congratulations to Lando from everybody at Bristol Sport on this remarkable achievement.
