Lando Norris: My role model was Valentino Rossi
Mclaren team racer Lando Norris revealed that he did not look like a Formula One celebrity at a young age, but that his model was motorcycle legend Valentino Rossi.
The young Briton made his Formula One debut at the wheel of McLaren this year, proving his undeniable talent in the opening races.
Norris revealed that he had a very special role model in his childhood.
“As a kid, I used to love motorcycle racing and was excited about Valentine Rossi. Not only over his racing, but also over his colors, which he uses on his racing gear. My helmet is also designed in a similar way. Rossi has always been my role model, though I didn't decide to race on two wheels after that. “
Silverstone is star-studded.
