Biography of Formula 1 driver Lando Norris

The Bristol born driver initially developed an interest in motorcycle racing citing MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi as his inspiration. However, his focus shifted to four wheels after his father Adam took him to the local kart track. From 2013 to 2017 the Brit won championships in the MSA Formula Series, the Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand and the European Formula 3 Championship, setting the stage for a jump to Formula 1 despite his young age.

McLaren signed Norris as a junior driver in early 2017, promoting him to official test and reserve driver for the 2018 campaign. His pace was apparent to all during his first practice session at the 2018 Belgian Grand Prix as he outperformed the other McLaren car driven by Stoffel Vandoorne.

The full-time position came in 2019 with Norris partnering Carlos Sainz for the steadily improving team from Woking. His maiden campaign started strongly, picking up points in two of his first four races, however collisions and poor reliability from the McLaren derailed several potential top-10 finishes. The most disappointing of those came at the Belgian Grand Prix, a home race for Lando given his mother is from Belgium, as he was on course for a fifth place finish before suffering a power failure on the final lap. He ultimately was classified 11th, outside the points.

Lando Norris in Formula 1

The Brit will no longer be the baby of the grid with the arrival of the first Formula 1 driver born this century, Yuki Tsunoda, at Alpha Tauri for 2021. However his appeal to younger audiences remains intact, with Norris an avid Twitch streamer thanks to his over 700,000 followers.

Norris has also taken an interest in eSports, founding Team Quadrant in 2020.

Formula 1 success

While Norris ended the season with nearly half the points of Sainz, he did manage to out-qualify his teammate 11-10 over the season, a sign of the potential lying in wait. That potential was on full display in the first race of the 2020 campaign with Lando qualifying fourth but then being elevated to third, the highest grid position of his career and McLaren’s best starting spot since the 2016 Austrian Grand Prix.

More importantly the 20-year-old delivered in the race, keeping within five seconds of Lewis Hamilton who was issued a penalty for colliding with Alexander Albon. Lando crossed the line fourth, but was promoted to third after setting the fastest lap to finish within 4.8 seconds of his compatriot and becoming the third youngest driver to finish on a Formula One podium.

While it would prove to be Norris’ only podium of the season, the youngster regularly finished in the top eight to help McLaren claim third in the Constructors’ Championship. He’ll look to build on that with a new teammate in 2021, with Daniel Ricciardo joining from Renault to replace Sainz.
