Norris to make initial McLaren F1 weekend outing in FP1 at Spa

McLaren reserve driver Lando Norris will make his Formula 1 grand prix weekend debut appearance when he drives in the first free practice session at the 2018 Belgian Grand Prix.

The 2017 Formula 3 European champion, who will replace Fernando Alonso in FP1 at Spa, recently drove for McLaren in the post-Hungarian Grand Prix test.

It is understood that Norris’ latest runs will be part of an ongoing evaluation regarding his potential to step up to a race seat with the team in 2019

Alonso made his decision to leave F1 after this year public during the summer break.

The double world champion will be replaced by current Renault driver Carlos Sainz, but the second McLaren seat is still up for grabs.
