Hopefully not. It's not like Trump-style hatred is universally popular here, either. Many teams would consider him a PR liability now.

BIB: the thing is, it isn't like he's got a phenomenal (or even halfway decent) junior resume to fall back on. Teams aren't going to be looking at him and seeing a talented kid who has made a mistake, something they could put down to his age/lack of maturity, who needs someone to give him a second chance; they're going to see someone who has shown no pace and (as Exediron says) is a liability on top of that.

Then again if he had enough $$$ to get the development role at Haas, chances are he's got enough $$$ to smooth over any concerns some teams may have.

No way Haas can keep him on surely?

Sounds like an extremely silly boy. His comments and apology show a lot. He's been racing since forever, he should know better

There's a question about him in Miller's Mailbag on Racer.com this week. I don't know what I found more disheartening, the fact that someone was asking if could race in Indycar while suspended, and if he could then why not get him in, or the reply from Miller that he didn't see any reason why not (although the way its worded, this may have just been in relation to the suspension from F2... I hope so). I'd suggest punting your teamate off with premeditation might put a team off, and thats before you get into the 'alleged' racism that he and his father have been accused of.

Well, hopefully that's the last we'll see of him, and good riddance. I can't imagine that Haas will want to keep him on in any capacity after that, especially considering how stunningly mediocre his accomplishments to date were.

Both are fairly disheartening, yes.

Strongly recommend watching f2 Hungary race 1 :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Amazing display of driving by Norris in the wet the guy was absolutely in a league of his own, Passing guys every where. But then it was all de vries once the track dried up. Carving away at the 14 sec lead Norris had and pulling away 10sec on top of that. This Race really did have the best of both worlds.

Did not watch the race, (no Sky) but in the report Norris says he had a broken front wing, which is why he lost ground.

I stress I did not watch it, just read it.

ESPN app allows you to rewatch races. ( just checked and it has races as far back as Silverstone.)

Makes sense (if Norris is telling the truth) Don’t recall seeing any contact would have to watch it once more. Also for those who didn’t watch it, you can still catch it on the espn app if you have it. Great race as mentioned before STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT.

Definitely worth watching even if you know the result. Norris 2 car pass in the sprint race was pretty special too. Russel v Norris is shaping up nicely and I'd love to see Russel in a Williams next year. A decent Williams preferably...

Yeah, it was one heck of a race - maybe Bernie's sprinkler idea wasn't so bad !

It had everything in it - gotta love a race on a drying track.

Apparently Norris had a partial wet set up as opposed to many of the other cars hence the lack of pace when it dried out.

We kind of see this in the sprint race when Norris was much quicker than de Vries, he passed him and left him.

Fair enough I put that down to his set up, I did see him go off the track soon after he pitted for dry tyres with the track still being damp in places, I wonder if he damaged it then?
