But on lap 18, when the points were likely, an awkward attack from Stroll outside the corner saw the Canadian on Norris, essentially ruining both drivers’ races.
The walk turned while Norris had to go straight to the pits and both cars were damaged.
Stroll was eventually given a five-second penalty for the incident, while he was given a second five-second penalty for exceeding track restrictions.
Norris broke out immediately in the incident.
“What the hell is this head doing? I have damage boys to box. I have wing damage, ”Norris said on team radio.
Norris ended up 13th, but Stroll was eliminated with 15 laps to go a long way in last place.
But it wasn’t the first incident of the weekend where Stroll collapsed while training with Max Verstappen on Friday.
The crash occurred at turn one when the Dutchman seemed barely paying any attention to his rival’s position as he walked outside of him.
Stroll’s car was thrown into the gravel.
In one race, it might have been viewed as a racing event with fault for both men, but Verstappen insisted on team radio that the Canadian driver needed an eye test.
“Is this damn guy blind?” He yelled. “What the hell is wrong with him?”
Video reruns suggested that Verstappen may have believed Stroll would complete a flying lap and slack off to start his own lap, but Racing Point team principal Otmar Schafnaeur said Stroll drove two consecutive fast laps.
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner finally said the incident was “50-50”.
But while guilt could be argued in either situation, Norris targeted Stroll, accusing the 21-year-old of failing to learn from his mistakes.
“I don’t know what he really did,” said Norris.
“I don’t know where he really was. He went left, which surprised me when he could have easily gone inside. I was easily halfway there and he just turns around.
“He obviously didn’t learn from Friday, but he doesn’t seem to learn from anything he does. A lot happens so I just have to make sure I stay away. ”
Norris was furious after the race, believing points were being offered, but had to switch to survival mode after the incident.
A late flat tire didn’t help the British either.
“I was alone for most of the race,” said Norris.
“We struggled with the wind a lot at the beginning and then I had a puncture which meant that I had to box again at the second stop.
“In the last stint we were fast and had a good pace, but we were just way too far behind where we should have been.
“It’s a shame we could have scored some points today, but it just wasn’t meant to be.”
