Lando Norris will compete in his third season of Formula 1 in 2021. The 21-year-old from Glastonbury will continue racing for McLaren but gets a new teammate as the inform Daniel Ricciardo arrives at the British team. Norris achieved his first podium in 2020, clinching third place in the Austrian Grand Prix.
Top junior talent
In 2013 the then still very young Brit knew how to attract attention. In year one, several victories in the karting championships were credited to Norris and one year later he called himself World Champion in karting.
2016 is another successful year for the young Briton, taking titles in the European Formula Renault Championship, the Northern European edition and the Toyota Racing Series. That same season Norris competed in Formula 3 for the first time, but as a part-timer in that class, great results continued to go his way.
With almost all possible titles in its pocket, Norris focused entirely on Formula 3 in 2017 and was also included in McLaren's junior talent program. That season, Norris won the title in Formula 3 and the Briton was allowed to compete in the final two races of the Formula 2 season. No points will be taken there, but in the next season, the junior demonstrated what he's made of.
In the first race of the season, Norris is directly on the top step of the podium, but knows that the competition in the 2018 season is fierce. George Russell and Alexander Albon are growing more throughout the year and are regularly on the podium, just like Norris. In the second half of the season, Norris dipped a little and dropped to P2. Fellow countryman (and Mercedes-junior) George Russell took the title.
Norris, despite missing out on the title, gets the chance at McLaren alongside Carlos Sainz. The duo provides a breath of fresh air for the team that, under the leadership of Andreas Seidl, suddenly manages to find its way up.
Lando Norris in 2020
McLaren took an important step in 2019, but the gap to the top is huge. The team seem to have a bright future ahead of them. They proved that by securing third place in the 2020 Constructors' Championship, although the battle ran until the final race in Abu Dhabi. Norris finished inside the top of the drivers' championship.
The same bright future goes for Norris. Though in 2021, he will race a tough teammate battle with Daniel Ricciardo.
