MIAMI. Lando Norris achieved his maiden Grand Prix win in Miami on Sunday to confirm the Brit’s rise to the top of Formula 1.

It has been a long time coming, with Norris having finished in second place on EIGHT occasions.

In the 2021 Russian Grand Prix he slid off in the wet on the final few laps while leading. And he squandered the chance of victory in Qatar last year.

Miami was his 110th race and he struck a little fortunate in the sunshine state as he was able to pit while a safety car was deployed, meaning he was able to hold onto his lead.

Like his compatriot Lewis Hamilton and many other F1 drivers, Norris lives in Monaco after moving to the French Riveira last year.

He is rumoured to be dating Margarida Corceiro, having first been spotted with the Portuguese supermodel and actress in public last year.

Norris previously dated model Luisinha Oliveira between August 2021 and September 2022.

The couple announced their split on social media, with Norris writing at the time: “After time and consideration, Luisa and myself have mutually decided to end our relationship but remain good friends.

“I wish her the world and have so much respect for her and all she does as an amazing and strong woman with nothing but kindness.”

Norris is one of the highest earners in the paddock after penning a deal to extend his stay at McLaren to 2026.

The pay rise is believed to have increased his earnings to an eye-watering £20million a year, with the contract worth £80m in total.

Only Verstappen, Hamilton and Charles Leclerc are paid more. – The Sun.
