"Every driver tries to beat his teammate. He will obviously try to do the same," Norris, 19, is quoted by France's Auto Hebdo.

"In an ideal world, I will be able to beat him or anyone at every race, but that is unlikely," he added.

"I will have to learn from Carlos and the other drivers. It is my first year and there will be areas where I will not be comfortable."

Indeed, Norris has been champion of Formula Renault and European F3 and other junior categories, but he failed to beat George Russell to the Formula 2 crown last year.

"In a way, it was a pretty good year to learn that I cannot always win," Norris said.
