“Thankfully, Lando was unharmed but he is understandably shaken,” McLaren said in a statement. “The team is supporting Lando and we are sure that racing fans will join us in wishing him all the best for the British Grand Prix this weekend.
“As this is now a police matter we cannot comment further.”

In an Instagram Story posted on July 13, Norris broke his silence to thank followers and supporters who had sent him messages following the event. “Thought I’d let you know that I’m doing well and trying to make sure I’m ready and in the right zone for this weekend to perform at my best,” he wrote.
“Love you all and can't wait to see so many of you back at the track this weekend.”
Norris currently sits fourth in the F1 drivers’ championship with 101 points, behind Red Bull’s Sergio Perez (104), Lewis Hamilton (150), and current leader Max Verstappen with 182 points.
