Verstappen can make it back-to-back crows in Singapore this weekend if results go his way, and while the Dutchman still has his critics as a result of last year’s controversy, Norris is in no doubt of the Red Bull driver’s ability.
“He’s done a pretty good job,” Norris told Sky Sports, before joking: “He should maybe have a go in our car and see what it’s like!”
The Briton added: “He’s done amazing [and has been] very impressive. Similar to Lewis in previous years.
“He is one of the most talented drivers ever to come into Formula 1, one of the fastest. No doubt he is going to win his second [title] this year and most likely, he will go on to win a few more in the future.”
What most impresses Norris is how Verstappen is able to find the limit from the very first lap of the weekend.
“Even in FP1, FP2, FP3, he’s never under the limit, he’s always pushing the limits,” added Norris.
“Even FP1, the first lap of the whole day, his lap times are normally quicker than what we ever do in qualifying.”
