Lando Norris Career

At the age of seven, Norris won the prime position at his first national competition. Norris participated in KF-Junior karting in 2013 and won the CIK FIA European Championship, the International Super Cup, and the WSK Euro Series. The following year, with Ricky Flynn Motorsport, he won the CIK-FIA KF World Championship, becoming the youngest karting world champion.

In 2014, Norris competed in the Ginetta Junior Championship, a British Touring Car Championship support series. He won four races and placed third in the championship to earn the Rookie Cup. Norris joined Carlin Motorsport for the 2015 MSA Formula Championship (now the F4 British Championship) season. Norris won the championship with eight victories, ten prime positions, and fourteen total podiums, surpassing Ricky Collard and Colton Herta. Additionally, he made occasional appearances in the ADAC and Italian Formula 4 championships with Mücke Motorsport, where he finished on the podium six times in eight starts in the former.

Norris was contracted to race alongside Carlos Sainz Jr. for McLaren in the 2019 Formula One World Championship. In his debut at the Australian Grand Prix, he qualified eighth and finished in the twelfth position. He earned his first Formula One points by finishing sixth at the Bahrain Grand Prix the following race. Norris retired from the Chinese Grand Prix for the first time that season after a collision with Daniil Kvyat on the opening lap left him unable to continue. At the Spanish Grand Prix, he was involved in a crash with Lance Stroll, and at the Canadian Grand Prix, his suspension failed due to a brake fire.

Norris signed a contract extension with McLaren in February 2022 that will keep him with the team until at least 2025. After Ricciardo tested positive for COVID-19 and could not attend the Bahrain Official Preseason Testing, Norris completed all three days.

Norris will continue to drive for McLaren in 2023, opposite 2021 Formula 2 champion Oscar Piastri, who succeeded Daniel Ricciardo. Norris faced reliability issues in the first race in Bahrain. These issues pushed him to 17th place among the finishing drivers. After crashing into the wall in the previous race, Norris could only qualify nineteenth for the next race in Saudi Arabia. Norris was eliminated from Q1 for only the second time, the first time happening at the 2019 German Grand Prix. Norris, who finished sixth, Piastri, who finished eighth, and McLaren all earned their first points of the season at the volatile Australian Grand Prix.

Norris was eliminated in the first quarter in Miami and could not advance; he finished seventeenth. Norris qualified fourth in the Austrian Grand Prix for the sprint and third for the main event. He finished fourth in the main event but ninth in the sprint. Norris qualified in second place at the British Grand Prix, passing his previous high of third. After a strong start, Norris temporarily held the lead in the opening laps before being passed by Max Verstappen on lap 5. In the closing phases of the race, Norris was able to hold off the charging Lewis Hamilton and finish in second place. Thus, Norris became the first McLaren driver since Lewis Hamilton in 2010 to finish on the podium at Silverstone.
