Also in the fourth season, a lot is played with images and audio clips of the 2021 season, which Lando Norris noted. The Briton has his doubts about some of the pieces. “Episode two is the first real introduction to Daniel, me and McLaren,” Norris said. “That’s fine, it gives you insight. I think it looks good from one side, maybe not so much from the other.”
“Obviously there are some comments and things here and there that might be out of place. If you’re the one the idea is about, you might not agree because it might look like you said something at some point, which isn’t true,” Norris said.

So some things are a bit exaggerated and maybe I don’t quite agree with that,” Norris explains his criticism.
