Lando Norris‘ first win was long-awaited and he finally achieved it after being on the lower steps of the podium 15 times. Many believed that he was cursed to not win a Grand Prix considering that he had the record for the most podiums without a win. This led to him earning the nickname “Lando NoWins” which is a wordplay on his last name. But all that’s over now.

The name Lando NoWins was a joke that stuck around for too long but the Briton did not mind knowing that his day would soon come. And it finally came during the 33rd lap of the Miami Grand Prix. To celebrate his achievement, he has dropped a new collection of merch that is a reply to the ‘NoWins’ joke.

Lando Norris won the Miami Grand Prix and now he can proudly say that he is a race winner. Despite it being a long journey of 115 starts without him winning a race, he was ready for Miami, and this time he had already announced that he would win races. When he finally won, it was time to shut down the NoWins name once set for all.

After the Miami race, Lando Norris updated his merch store on his website with new Hoodies for sale. The hoodies are put up for the price of $90 a piece and for that, you will get a full black hoodie with a hidden message under its hood. The McLaren driver breaks the NoWins joke by striking out the ‘No’ changing the narrative to ‘Lando Wins’.

On the front, fans can see a message saying, “We did it” and below that he mentioned the race of his maiden victory. Under that, he signed the hoodie delivering a simple but stylish piece of clothing. Fans can buy the hoodie from his website as a part of his ‘We Did It’ collection.

While some fans playfully called him NoWins, others took it too far. It was important for him to overcome this hurdle, which he did. Now that he had won his race, this was his answer to the NoWins era, and he had a little something to tell the non-believers.
