New on-board footage shows Lando Norris’ 180mph crash at the Las Vegas Grand Prix from a 360-degree angle with the British McLaren star recording a first DNF of the season in Sin City after just three laps


Footage has emerged of Lando Norris’s 190mph crash during Sunday’s Las Vegas Grand Prix, with the British McLaren driver unable to continue after just three laps of the race.

McLaren endured a difficult weekend in Nevada, with both teammate Oscar Piastri and Norris failing to get past a disastrous first session at the event, which was a difficult weekend in itself.

The first practice session lasted just eight minutes before it was called off, with Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz driving over a loose drain cover, causing irreparable damage to the underside of his SF-23.

As a result, he was given a 10-place grid penalty after replacing the battery, although he would climb back up the standings to finish sixth after qualifying second and start 12th.

However, there would be no points for Norris, who suffered his first DNF of the season after the high-speed collision with the barriers, and new 360-degree footage shows the impact from a new, horrifying angle.

On-board footage shows the incident, with Norris appearing to adapt at high speed as he tries to avoid what appears to be a small piece of debris from the car in front of him.

As a result, he loses control entering Turn 11, before spinning and crashing into the barrier on his right.

The sudden change in speed causes his car to turn so that the entire left side comes into contact with that barrier.

Norris then continues to spin in a circle as his car hurtles towards the barriers, where it eventually comes to a stop.

The Briton was surprisingly unhurt and was able to leave his car behind and leave the track unaided at the end of a weekend that was bitterly disappointing for him personally.

He was obviously taken to the medical center before undergoing preventive checks at the University Medical Center in Las Vegas, but was later discharged.

Las Vegas was the penultimate race of the season and before the end of the 2023 season, only Abu Dhabi remained on the F1 calendar.

‘An unfortunate end to our GP weekend in Las Vegas. I just bottomed out on the restart, lost the rear and hit the wall.

“Not the way we wanted the weekend to end, especially considering the pace looked promising on Oscar’s side,” said Norris.

‘Big thanks to the medical staff for checking me out, and to the team for the work they are now going to do on the car. One week to reset and go again for the season finale in Abu Dhabi.”

Norris is currently sixth in the overall standings with 195 points, just five ahead of Spanish duo Fernando Alonso and Sainz on 200 points, so he has a chance to progress from his current position next week.

However, he will want to look in his rear-view mirror as Sainz’s Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc at 188 looks to end a mediocre season on a high.
