Lando Norris is not a reference to the renowned Star Wars character Lando Calrissian, contrary to common misconception.
Landon has previously stated that he has no idea how his mother came up with the name. He believes his mother was drawn to him because of his charisma and fighting spirit.
He stated, “It has nothing to do with Star Wars.”
Norris had an interest in motorsport at a young age, and by the age of seven, he was competing in karting series.
Is Lando Norris Named After Star Wars?
He joins McLaren as a full-time driver in 2019 after fast moving through the junior racing categories with significant success.
The jovial, good-natured, happy-go-lucky 21-year-old is swiftly becoming a fan favorite and is regarded as championship-winning stuff.
The reason for this is because he is part of a new generation of drivers who make effective use of social media. He has endeared himself to the people by streaming on Twitch, producing memes, and being an all-around jokester in the paddock.
