Report: Norris Takes Second At Snetterton

Lando Norris took second in the first MSA Formula Championship race of the weekend at Snetterton today in an eventful race.

As the first race of the weekend got underway, Norris lost out slightly at the start, allowing title rival Daniel Ticktum into second place.

Ticktum to took the lead with Carlin driver Norris close behind, following a mistake by the Bristol Sport racer's team mate Coltan Herta.

The 15-year-old worked hard to close in on Ticktum but also had to contend with Ricky Collard close behind him. The gap stayed relatively constant for the remainder of the race, with the top three covered by a 0.8s at one point. Close, but not with quite enough pace to overtake, Norris took a strong second place at the flag.

Speaking about his second place, Lando said, “I think I just bogged down a little at the start, and so was third and then second. I didn’t quite have the extra pace to pass Ticktum but maybe if it had been the other way round maybe I could have pulled away a little bit. We’re in good shape for the rest of the weekend I think.”

The MSA Formula drivers will be out early tomorrow for race two of the weekend at 09.20.

Elsewhere at Snetterton today Dino Zamparelli qualified in seventh for tomorrow's first Porsche Carrera Cup GB race of the weekend at 10.45am with coverage on ITV4 from 11am.
