Lando Norris is finally a Formula 1 race winner, taking the chequered flag first during the Miami Grand Prix.

It was 2,220 days since Norris last won a race, the F2 Bahrain opener in 2018, as the McLaren driver had plenty of near-misses along the way.

But he had added his name to the list of British F1 drivers to have won in F1 - becoming the 21st to do and first since George Russell at the 2022 Sao Paulo Grand Prix.

As an interesting aside, it makes Lewis Hamilton the only race-winning Briton on the grid not to have had God Save the King played for him on the podium - with his 103rd and final win to date coming in December 2021, still during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

Here RacingNews365 has rounded up some of the numbers associated with Norris's maiden win.

Lando Norris first win in numbers

  • 309th win for a British driver
  • 21st British driver to win a world championship grand prix
  • 114th different driver to win a world championship grand prix
  • Victory in his 110th start - the same number of races Lewis Hamilton drove for McLaren
  • The first driver to take a maiden win in the United States since Michele Alboreto in the 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix.
  • McLaren's 13th win in the United States, tying the record held by Ferrari
  • The first time Max Verstappen has not won in the United States since the 2019 US Grand Prix - a run of six straight wins
