Norris admits his F1 future depends on Alonso

Norris admits his F1 future depends on Alonso:

Lando Norris says the timing of his opportunity to
make his Formula 1 debut with McLaren hinges on how long Fernando Alonso
stays with the team.

Norris, who will fulfil reserve driver duties for McLaren in F1 this year, won the European Formula 3 championship last year and will race in F2 for Carlin in 2018.

When asked if he was essentially waiting for Alonso to retire to move
up into a race seat, Norris said: “Obviously from that, I would say so,
but I couldn’t really say what they are thinking.

"I guess you have to wait for what Fernando wants to do and I think
they are happy with Stoffel [Vandoorne] and it is quite early in his
career.

"Obviously he can develop a lot and definitely improve as a driver going into 2018.                             

"So it is a bit of it is waiting to see what they are going to do but
I can’t really say what else is going to happen – it is a bit hard for
me.”

Norris admitted he would have to look at opportunities elsewhere on the F1 grid if a vacancy at McLaren didn’t come up, but he stressed his priority it to race for the British team.

“Obviously my aim is to be at McLaren,” he said. “If I can’t get a drive here, then I have to look at other opportunities.

"If they say ‘We’re not really going to have a drive [available] for
three years or something, then it is obvious that I am going to have to
go elsewhere.

"But if it is just one year, I think I’ll still stick with McLaren and deal with one year out. The aim is to be with McLaren.”
