Lando Norris is one of the most popular drivers on the Formula 1 grid at the moment, but he says he is still not “anywhere near” Lewis Hamilton’s level.
According to the results of a recent Formula 1 fan survey McLaren’s Lando Norris has been found to be the second most popular driver on the F1 grid, behind Max Verstappen and ahead of Lewis Hamilton.
The young Briton is especially popular among the younger demographic of Formula 1 fans, however, he himself says he still has a long way to go to reach the “level” of someone like Lewis Hamilton.

“I’m not a seven-time world champion and known for many other things like he is. He’s popular outside of Formula One as well. I wouldn’t say I’m anywhere near that level.
“But, of course, with the charts that came out the other day, being the second most popular… there’s a lot of things fans love me for which is different from other drivers. It’s OK at the moment.
“Sometimes it’s a bit too much, but it’s still a nice thing to have,” Lando concluded.
