The rising star of British Motorsport, Lando Norris does not consider three-time champion of Formula 1 Lewis Hamilton as his idol.
In 2017, the 17-year-old Briton in dominant style won the title in the European F3 and is a candidate for a reserve pilot McLaren next season.
“I’m not familiar with Lewis, – said Norris in an interview with The Daily Mail. – At the end of last year we met at the awards ceremony of the FIA, but we talked. But I talked to Sebastian Vettel, he paid me five to ten minutes.
It was nice to hear that I called the next follower of Hamilton. He’s a great racer and is particularly quick in qualifying. I’m a fan, but only because of the fact that he’s my compatriot. Can’t call him my idol. The main thing for me is to achieve results, and everything else is secondary.”
