Lando Norris palmeiras? Yes! The pilot of McLaren at Formula 1 revealed that he watched the match between Palmeiras and Botafogo for the Brazilian Championship, held this Wednesday, at the Nilton Santos stadium. The team from São Paulo, 11 times Brazilian champion, came from behind to beat the current leader of the Brasileirão.
The Brit, who attended Palmeiras’ games in 2021 and 2022 at Allianz Parque, was unable to attend the stadium for the São Paulo team’s dispute against the Rio team due to the fact that the game took place in Rio de Janeiro. But anyone who thought he stopped following the team led by Abel Ferreira is mistaken.
– Palmeiras beat the leader (of the championship) last night… It doesn’t matter, I don’t know the name. The other team was leading three to zero until halftime and Palmeiras came back well in the second half and won four to three.
After forgetting Botafogo’s name and giving a summary of the match, Norris still assessed the team’s ‘scenario’ in search of the national title and wished the black and white team good luck.
– Yes, I watched the game! I have been supporting Palmeiras for the last three years, last year I was able to go to the stadium to watch the game and it was great. I haven’t been to many football games in my life, I’ve been to Palmeiras games more than any other. This has become a ‘tradition’ every time I come. Congratulations to them for yesterday, they left the title fight alive, so I hope they can do it.
When asked about his good memories of Brazil, Norris drew laughter from the drivers around him when he replied that he didn’t have a good memory, before highlighting that he was only referring to the results on the track.
“I don’t have good memories here…(laughs) I’m just talking about the results on the track, which haven’t been good in recent years, that’s all.”
