Lando Norris' X-rated team radio message after Spanish GP has got F1 fans talking

Max Verstappen denied Lando Norris victory at the Spanish Grand Prix.

Lando Norris expressed his frustrations with an X-rated team radio message after the Spanish Grand Prix.

On Sunday afternoon, Formula 1 returned with the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Ahead of the race, Mclaren superstar Norris managed to beat reigning world champion Max Verstappen to pole position by two hundredths of a second.

However, the Brit failed to hold on to his position by the time the cars entered turn one, fellow Brit and George Russell roared to the lead on the outside with a fine move.

Verstappen also pipped Norris into turn one and ended up winning the race ahead of the Mclaren driver by 2.2 seconds.

Immediately after the race, Norris’ engineer Will Joseph said on the team radio: “P2 as you know, and fastest lap.”

A disappointed Norris replied: “Doesn’t matter really does it? I should have won, I f**ked up the start. Car was amazing, well done, it deserved more”

Speaking during the post-race interviews, Norris again stated he should’ve won the Grand Prix.

He said: “I should have won. I got a bad start. As simple as that. The car was incredible today. We were for sure the quickest. I just lost it at the beginning.

“Disappointed but a lot of positives. One negative and that kind of ruined everything. I know that.”

Norris added: “Apart from that, a good amount of points and thanks to the team because the car is amazing.”

Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton, who recorded his first podium finish of the season, said: “It has been a good day, a solid weekend. I have to say a big thank you to the team as they have been training so hard. The strategy and the pitstops were really on point.

“Unfortunately I got a really bad start and lost ground to the Ferraris so it was a battle to get back. With a better start... I don't know if we could have held on to the guys ahead but I don't think we would have been as far behind.”

F1 will return next weekend with the Austrian Grand Prix, which will take place at the Red Bull Ring on Sunday, June 30.
