Norris reflected on the Russian Grand Prix and he was pleased with how he performed in the city of Sochi. 
 
“I’m happy with how we did from where we were and the positions we got put into from out of our control," Norris said.
 
"But I guess not enough in the end with the lockup and pushing too hard to keep Alex Albon behind. It was what I had to do. 
 
"I was coming up against a Red Bull which was on much fresher tyres and I had some problems so I think I can still be happy with how we did as a team, just frustrated that it could have been a lot more.”
 
Mercedes are still placed at the top of Constructors' standings followed by second-placed Red Bull and third-placed McLaren-Renault.
