In this current generation of Formula 1, we’ve got some really bright stars. And as things stand, the future of F1 is safe in the hands of these young drivers. Chief amongst them is McLaren‘s own British superstar, Lando Norris. The 23-year-old is often touted as a future world champion, and rightly so. However, one cannot lose sight of the fact that the fans and Norris himself have been very lucky indeed to witness his presence in the sport in the current landscape of things.

Economically, the sport has been the most inaccessible in probably its 70+ year history. Naturally, even though the Brit has excelled in F1 ever since his debut in 2019 on merit, his path to glory was made easier due to his father, Adam Norris’ immense wealth and resources. But who exactly is Adam Norris and how did he enable his son to embark on the journey to arguably become one of F1’s biggest stars?
