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 22-year-old holds dual citizenship from Britain and Belgium.
In 2021, Norris officially revealed that he was dating Portuguese model, Luisinha Oliveira. The Briton posted a picture of the two together holidaying on Instagram to which his former teammate, Carlos Sainz commented, "It's official."
Born in the late 90s, one might assume Norris idolizes drivers like Michael Schumacher, Kimi Raikkonen, Fernando Alonso, or Lewis Hamilton. However, truth be told, he idolizes none of the Formula One drivers. Instead, his idol has always been Moto GP legend, Valentino Rossi. The Briton, on several occasions, has made it obvious by sporting bucket caps with the number 46 and 'The Doctor' written all over them.
