The Official Lando Norris thread

Post by Herb »

Seemed odd Lando didn't have his own Official PF! forum thread, so thought I'd put that right.

He seems to be making some waves this year, a couple of good races, currently 4th in the championship and a seemingly very likeable character. I'm becoming a big fan.

That picture was put all over social media by McLaren and cynical old me can't help feel its purely a PR/media stunt


The mechanics will be bonkersly well drilled in stripping the car and if he genuinely wanted to help he'd have been better off brushing the floor or making brews


He does seem like a genuinely nice and funny guy though. When Ted chats to him post race he seems like a fan who has won a weekend working with the team

Very true, he comes across as really grounded. There is a graet little video with Aubameyang, the Arsenal footballer requesting some e-sports coaching. Worth a watch.

Lando has a bit of charisma about him. I think he's gonna be a very popular figure in F1.

I see Ticktum hasn't changed much I counted 3 times where he looked to push Norris off the track on the last lap, as Norris said he just wanted to make sure he didn't crash for series points. I use to race at that track and were Ticktum passed near the end is not a passing place, if Norris had not seen him Ticktum would have crashed Norris out of the race.

Hard not to like him.

Going to be a real treat having Ricciardo and Norris together at McLaren next year...

Having secured (potentially) endorsements from just about every toy, clothing and media organisation which targets 6 year old girls through his helmet design competition, today's Silverstone qually lap was pretty special.

5th, 0.2s faster than Sainz (for the 3rd time in 4 races) he is looking the real deal now.

I had heard a few bad stories of lando being a bit of a jerk online and with his fans. Boy was I wrong.

Watching some of the youtubers and tiametmarduk in particular. Especially during the lockdown. Lando is game for a laugh and the way he comes across is actually very likeable. Its changed my perception of lando and turned me into a fan of his.

There is one example of it that didn’t seem to get much attention during lockdown. Just after Vettel was dropped he was live on Twitch watching a video that had been made that was having a go/making fun of Vettel and he was laughing along with it. At best it was unprofessional.

Anyway, that aside he seems to be a pretty good guy.

Still early days in the season but he seems to have stepped it up a bit from last season which you would expect, and last season he wasn't that shabby.

Just watching a post-race interview with Lando on Channel 4. They have a video feed with a 6yo girl (Eva) who's design was on Lando's helmet toady. Great stuff.
