Lando Norris Age | When he was 17, McLaren’s test driver and reserve driver was called Lando Norris. After an excellent test performance at the Hungaroring in 2017, Jenson Button, World Champion 2009, was chosen to replace the team’s starting driver. Like Button, Norris got his first karting taste on the Kart track at Clay Pigeon. The participants in karting competitions began immediately with Norris and his older brother, Oliver (10, both aged seven).
The brothers Norris were helped by their father, which supports Adam Norris. Adam Norris was the managing director of Hargreaves Lansdown, a financial services company that later established its own investment company. In 2016, Forbes magazine reportedly valued more than £200 million.
In one time in an instance, Lando Norris went on to extend his expertise and familiarise himself with different kinds of equipment and tires in the KF and Rotax karting categories. The rigorous workouts of Lando paid off as he accumulated a wonderful title collection. He won the 2013 WSK Euro series with one round left. Although the next year, he was denied the title of European KF, he took over the 2014 KF World Championship.
Norris made his debut in 2014 in automotive racing, participating in the British feeder series at the Ginetta Junior Championship. He finished third with four victories in the championship and the Rookie Cup. In the newly created MSA Formula Championship, Norris earned the contract of 2015 with Carlin Motorsport (now known as the F4 British Championship). Norris won eight races, earned ten pole places, and took the championship to 14 podiums to beat Ricky Collard and Colton Herta. In the old ADAC and Italian Formula 4 Championships, he was on a sporadic trip with Mücke Motorsport and won six podiums in eight starts.
In January 2016, Norris went to New Zealand to attend the Toyota Racing Series as part of the M2 competition team. He won six races, including the Grand Prix of New Zealand, and overthrew Jehan Daruvala for the championship. Norris traveled to Europe to race with Josef Kaufmann Racing in Formula Renault 2.0 and to participate both in Eurocup as well as the Northern Cup. He won both series, won a total of 11 races, and earned ten pole positions in the later series.
In addition, Norris has also competed part-time in the BRDC UK Formula 3 Championships and won four races out of 11. During the final round of the European Formula 3 Championships in preparation for the November Macau Grand Prix, he was invited to the Hockenheimring in October. Norris qualified tenth in Macau but was removed in a first-rate crash from the qualification race. He finished 27th and 11th in the main competition.
