Lando Norris will be given time to shine at McLaren, according to the British team's boss.

The struggling British team has just ousted Stoffel Vandoorne, who made his debut in 2016 as the reigning Formula 2 champion.

Managing expectations

Now, the 2018 F2 runner-up is Norris, and McLaren boss Zak Brown says the 19-year-old will be given time to adjust.

"Formula 1 can be a pretty cruel environment. We need to manage expectations, not after three races, and pass judgment, which we as a sport are pretty quick to do," he is quoted by the Sun newspaper.

"He will definitely be given time to develop. It is a high pressure environment and the first thing anyone does in F1 is compare you to your teammate," Brown added.

Norris' 2019 teammate is Carlos Sainz, who Brown says is "extremely quick and experienced".

"We expect them to race each other hard, cleanly and, for sure, they need to get the measure of each other from time to time," he said.
