British driver Lando Norris made his Formula One debut with McLaren during the 2019 season. He was initially interested in pursuing a motorcycle racing career. However, that changed when he attended his first kart race.
He made his racing debut in 2014 for the Ginetta Junior Championship, finishing 3rd. A year later, he won the MSA Formula Championship while racing for Carlin. In 2016, he even won the Formula Renault 2.0 and the Toyota Racing Series.
Finally, in 2017, he won the FIA Formula 3 Championship and placed 2nd at the Macau GP. But in 2018, he could only muster 2nd in the FIA Formula 2 Championship, losing out to George Russell.
In Formula One, he has been fairly successful, with his best finish being a 3rd place in Austria.
During the 2017 Formula 3 season, he won the very first race of the season. He followed it up with a podium in Round 3, both races at Silverstone. Since then, Lando Norris went on a 5-race podium streak, including a win. But it was halted at Race 3 of the Pau Grand Prix. Unfazed, he scored six podiums and seven wins to seal the Championship.
During the 2018 Formula 2 season, he claimed a season-opening victory, this time at Bahrain. However, it would be the only win he took all season. But he managed to follow it up with eight podiums to finish 2nd in the Championship.
The young Briton is sponsored by McLaren, Bell Helmets, wearegrip, ADD Management, and PAP.
Not many know of this, but Lando Norris’s father is one of the richest people in the UK. Adam Norris is a multimillionaire who made his fortunes through pension funds. Norris’ mother Cisca is Belgian and the 20-year-old holds a dual citizenship from Britain and Belgium.
Lando Norris put his gaming and sim racing abilities to good use. In April 2020, Norris raised over $10,000 as part of a charity stream for Twitch as an aid for those affected by COVID-19. Norris raised over $12,000 and shaved off his head (a promise he made if he hit $10,000 in donations).
But the 20-year-old didn’t stop there. He teamed up with other F1 drivers to organize a charity stream in the fight against Coronavirus. Titled – Race For the World, Norris and 5 other F1 drivers raised over $70,000 in donations.
