Lando Norris (born 13 November 1999) is a British-Belgian[3] racing driver currently competing in Formula One with McLaren, racing under the British flag. He won the MSA Formula championship in 2015, and the Toyota Racing Series, Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 and Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup in 2016. He also received the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award that year. He subsequently won the 2017 FIA Formula 3 European Championship. He was a member of the McLaren Young Driver Programme.

Personal and early life[edit]

Born in Bristol, his father Adam Norris is a retired pensions manager,[4] one of Bristol's richest people and the 501st-richest in the country.[5] His mother Cisca (née Wauman) is from the Flanders region of Belgium.[6] He is the second oldest alongside three siblings, with two younger sisters Flo and Cisca, and an older brother Oliver who was also involved in karting on a competitive level.[7][8] Norris holds both British and Belgian citizenship,[9] and speaks a small amount of Flemish Dutch.[7][10]

Norris was educated at Millfield School in Street, Somerset, leaving school without taking his GCSEs.[11] He studied physics and mathematics with a full-time personal tutor. His family also moved to Glastonbury to allow him to become a day pupil, and to pursue his racing career, citing Valentino Rossi as an inspiration.[12][13] Norris resides in Woking, in close proximity to McLaren's headquarters.[14]

Racing career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Norris racing for Mücke Motorsport in Formula 4 in 2015

After initially developing an interest in motorcycle racing, Norris's attention switched from two wheels to four after his father took him and his brother to watch a round of the Super 1 National Kart Championships at his local kart track.[15] He started his racing career at the age of seven when he claimed pole position at his first national event. In 2013, Norris competed in KF-Junior karting, winning the CIK FIA European Championship and the International Super Cup,[16][17] as well as the WSK Euro Series.[18] The following year he won the CIK-FIA KF World Championship with Ricky Flynn Motorsport, making him the youngest karting world champion.[19]

In 2014, Norris made his car racing debut in the Ginetta Junior Championship, a support series to the British Touring Car Championship. He finished third in the championship, winning four races and claiming the Rookie Cup. For 2015, Norris signed with Carlin Motorsport to drive in the newly-established MSA Formula Championship (now known as the F4 British Championship). Norris took eight wins, ten pole positions and fourteen total podiums to win the championship ahead of Ricky Collard and Colton Herta. He also made occasional appearances in the ADAC and Italian Formula 4 championships with Mücke Motorsport where he claimed six podiums from eight starts in the former.[19][20]

In January 2016, Norris travelled to New Zealand to compete in the Toyota Racing Series with the M2 Competition team. He achieved six race wins, including the New Zealand Grand Prix, and won the championship ahead of Jehan Daruvala. Norris then returned to Europe to race in the Formula Renault 2.0 category with Josef Kaufmann Racing, competing in both the Eurocup and Northern European Cup. He won both series, taking eleven race wins in total and recording ten consecutive pole positions in the latter. At the same time, Norris embarked on a part-time campaign in the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship and claimed four wins in eleven races. In October he made a guest appearance in the final round of the European Formula 3 Championship at the Hockenheimring in preparation for the Macau Grand Prix in November. Norris placed ninth in qualifying in Macau but was eliminated from the qualification race after crashing on the first lap. In the main race, he progressed from 27th on the grid to finish 11th.[20]

Norris driving for Carlin Motorsport during the 2018 FIA Formula 2 Championship

Norris raced full-time with Carlin in the 2017 European Formula 3 Championship,[21] and faced competition from Joel Eriksson, Maximilian Günther and Callum Ilott for the championship title. Norris finished on the podium in twenty of the thirty races, including nine wins, and recorded eight pole positions. He clinched the title with two races remaining, marking his fifth racing championship title in four years.[22] In November, Norris made his second appearance at the Macau Grand Prix. He was classified second in qualifying but dropped to seventh in the qualification race. He benefited from an accident between the leaders on the final lap to finish the Grand Prix second behind Dan Ticktum. On the following weekend, Norris made his FIA Formula 2 debut with Campos Racing, replacing Ralph Boschung for the final round at Yas Marina Circuit.

Norris competed full-time in the 2018 FIA Formula 2 Championship, racing alongside Sérgio Sette Câmara at Carlin. Norris won the opening race at the Bahrain International Circuit from pole position, however this would prove to be his only race victory of the season. He scored consistent points and podium finishes to hold the lead of the championship until the sixth round at the Red Bull Ring, when George Russell passed him in the standings. Norris retired from both races at the eleventh round at Sochi Autodrom, ruling him out of championship contention and dropping him to third place in the standings behind Alex Albon, although he recovered to second place after the final round at Yas Marina Circuit.[23]

Formula One[edit]

Norris driving for McLaren during free practice at the 2018 Japanese Grand Prix

In early 2017, Norris was signed as a junior driver with McLaren.[24] Later that year, Norris tested for McLaren in a scheduled mid-season test. He set the second fastest lap in the second day of testing at the Hungaroring.[25] In late 2017, Norris became the official McLaren test and reserve driver for the 2018 season.[26] Norris participated in his first official practice session at the Belgian Grand Prix, recording 26 laps.[27] Norris drove in six further practice sessions during the year.

McLaren (2019–)[edit]

2019[edit]

Norris was contracted to drive for McLaren for the 2019 Formula One World Championship, partnering Carlos Sainz Jr.[28] He qualified eighth on his debut at the Australian Grand Prix and finished the race in twelfth place. He scored his first Formula One points by finishing sixth at the following race, the Bahrain Grand Prix[29] The Chinese Grand Prix was the first of Norris' retirements that season, after damage from a first lap collision with Daniil Kvyat caused him to retire later in the race.[30] Further retirements came at the Spanish Grand Prix after a collision with Lance Stroll and at the Canadian Grand Prix when a brake fire caused his suspension to fail.[31]

Norris was on course to finish seventh at the French Grand Prix but suffered hydraulic problems late in the race and was eventually classified ninth. This was followed by a sixth-place finish at the Austrian Grand Prix, matching his best result. He was forced to start from the back at the German Grand Prix due to penalties for exceeding the allowed number of engine components for the season. He later retired from the race after a power failure.[32] At the Belgian Grand Prix, he made his way from eleventh up to fifth in the early stages of the race. He maintained this position and was set to record his best career finish but suffered a power failure on his final lap and was classified eleventh.[33]

Three consecutive points finishes followed at the Italian, Singapore and Russian Grands Prix. At the Japanese Grand Prix, Norris was running in fifth place before Alex Albon collided with him during an overtake attempt. Norris dropped back after collecting floor damage and eventually finished eleventh. At the next race, the Mexican Grand Prix, he had a wheel fitted incorrectly after pitting from seventh place. He spent almost two minutes in the pits as his mechanics resolved the problem but he was eventually withdrawn from the race.[34] He ended the season with three consecutive points finishes.[9]

Norris finished his debut Formula One season eleventh in the drivers' championship with 49 points. Teammate Sainz scored 96 points, however Norris out-qualified Sainz at eleven of the twenty-one races. During his debut year, Norris signed a multi-year contract to stay with McLaren for the 2020 season until 2022.[35]

2020[edit]
Norris driving at the 2020 Tuscan Grand Prix

At the season-opening Austrian Grand Prix, Norris qualified in fourth place but was elevated to third after a grid penalty for Lewis Hamilton, the highest grid position of his career and the highest for McLaren since the 2016 Austrian Grand Prix.[36] In the closing stages of the race, third-placed Hamilton was issued a five-second penalty for causing a collision with Alex Albon. Norris set the fastest lap of the race on the final lap to finish 4.802 seconds behind Hamilton, allowing Norris to claim the first podium finish of his career.[37][38] This made Norris the third youngest podium-finisher in Formula One history.[39] At the Styrian Grand Prix, Norris qualified sixth but was given a three-place grid penalty for overtaking under yellow flags during practice. He passed three cars in the final two laps of the race to finish fifth, in what he described as "one of the best races of [his] career".[40]

Six consecutive points finishes came between the British and Tuscan Grands Prix.[41] Norris collected damage on the opening lap of the Russian Grand Prix and finished the race fifteenth. At the Eifel Grand Prix, he retired from sixth place with power unit failure. During the Portuguese Grand Prix, a collision with Lance Stroll and a puncture resulted in a thirteenth place finish.[42] Following this, Norris faced criticism over his remarks that Stroll "doesn't seem to learn"[43][44] and his perceived downplaying of Lewis Hamilton's achievement of most Grand Prix wins, describing it as meaning "nothing to him".[45][46] Subsequently, Norris apologised for his comments about Stroll and also offered a personal apology to Hamilton, stating that his comments were "careless" and that he "[hadn't] shown the respect I should have to certain people".[47][48][49]

At the wet Turkish Grand Prix Norris had what he called "[the] worst start of everyone's career ever".[50] He started from fourteenth place after a five-place grid penalty for failing to respect yellow flags in qualifying, but recovered to finish eighth and recorded the fastest lap of the race.[50] Norris finished fourth at the Bahrain Grand Prix and fifth at the season-finale Abu Dhabi Grand Prix,[51][52] which alongside the points scored by teammate Sainz, assisted McLaren in claiming third place in the constructors' championship over Racing Point.[53] Norris ended the season ninth in the drivers' championship with 97 points, eight points behind Sainz.

2021[edit]

Norris remained at McLaren for the 2021 season, partnering Daniel Ricciardo as Sainz left the team.[54]

Norris qualified seventh for the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix and finished the race fourth.[55][56] [57] At the following race, the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, a qualifying time that would have placed him third on the grid was deleted for exceeding track limits, and he started the race seventh. Norris had ran in second place before being passed by Lewis Hamilton with three laps remaining. He finished third to claim his second Formula One podium finish.[58] At the Monaco Grand Prix, Norris started fifth and benefited from Charles Leclerc's failure to start the race and Valtteri Bottas' retirement to claim another podium finish.

Norris was issued a grid penalty and started ninth at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix for failing to enter the pits during a red flag period in qualifying, a sanction he criticised as "unfair".[59] He recovered places in the race to finish fifth. Norris equalled his highest grid position at the Styrian Grand Prix, starting third after Bottas was issued with a grid penalty.[60] He would eventually finish fifth for the third consecutive race.[61] He bettered this qualifying position at the following weekend's Austrian Grand Prix, starting in second place after setting a time 0.048 seconds behind pole-sitter Max Verstappen.[62] Norris received a penalty during the race after being judged to have forced Sergio Pérez off the track. He finished the race third to claim his third podium of the season.[63] He set the sixth fastest time in Friday qualifying at the British Grand Prix, before finishing fifth in the new-format sprint qualifying and fourth in the Grand Prix. This result moved him up to third place in the drivers' championship.[64]

Norris qualified sixth for the Hungarian Grand Prix. After a strong start, he was into third place by the first corner, but was hit by Bottas from behind and then forced into Verstappen. He retired two laps later under red flag conditions due to heavy damage. Bottas was later issued a five-place grid penalty and two super licence points for the incident.

Other ventures[edit]

Norris raised $12,000 for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund in support of the World Health Organization during an online streaming event on Twitch.[65] Norris also founded Team Quadrant, an esports team which also focuses on content creation and apparel, in 2020.[66][67]
