Summit1G Reckons He Can Beat F1 Driver Lando Norris At iRacing

Summit1G has been playing so much iRacing recently that he reckons he’s ready to take on the Formula 1 driver, Lando Norris.

Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar has spent the last few weeks getting properly stuck into competitive online racing. With a ridiculously expensive racing rig setup, the streamer has enjoyed showing off his newfound driving skills to his audience. Practicing specifically with a Mazda MX5, the Summit reckons that he’s already capable of taking on one of the best racing drivers in the world, Lando Norris.

Lando Norris currently races for the McLaren F1 team. He’s scored some impressive podiums in the 2021 F1 championship, although luck hasn’t been on his side in recent weeks. He’s currently sitting fifth in the F1 drivers championship with 153 points. Safe to say, he knows his way around a race track.

Moving up and down, side to side, like a rollercoaster

Regardless of Norris’ racing pedigree, Summit reckons that he could take him in an iRacing competition. “Listen, let me just say something. I’m confident enough in my MX5 game that if Lando Norris came to the track, only had five minutes of practice, I’m pretty sure I’d beat him in five laps or so,” Summit claims.

His chat isn’t convincing with most viewers spamming either Copium or KekW emotes. It does seem like an outlandish claim, but Summit is more than confident in his abilities. The reasoning is that Summit has spent over a week practicing this one track with the same car. Would Lando Norris really have that much more pace than Summit?

Lando Norris hasn’t yet responded to Summit’s gauntlet throwdown. As the F1 season draws to a close over the next three weeks, the 21-year-old driver probably has quite a bit on his calendar. Nevertheless, it would be a race that we’d certainly all tune in for.
