Lando Norris breaks into Rich List for the first time

Lando Norris has been linked with a move to Red Bull in the future, with the Brit being seen by many as a future world champion.

The Sunday Times Young Rich List for 2022 has been released and McLaren’s Lando Norris features for the first time, with the young Brit coming in 85th place.

The 23-year-old has been McLaren’s shining light for a number of years now, with Norris being the only driver outside of Mercedes, Red Bull and Ferrari to score a podium last year, finishing as the best of the rest driver in the championship as well.

Norris’ success since joining F1 in 2019 has seen him rewarded with a long-term contract, which sees the Brit paid an eye watering £20m plus bonuses per year.

The Sunday Times have claimed that Norris’ net worth was £10m last year, as the Brit continues to grow and improve in motorsport.

The Norris family is not new to being on a rich list however, as Lando’s father Adam, aged 51, was ranked at the 610th richest man in Britain last year, with a net worth of £200m.

According to The Sunday Times, Norris is going to “overtake the field in future years as the extreme wealth associated with Formula One comes down the track,” with the Brit’s net worth being very similar to Liverpool’s goalkeeper Alisson, who is widely regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

Norris’ stunning performances over the years for McLaren have led to him being linked with moves away from McLaren, who have been far away from challenging for championships for over a decade now.

The construction of a new state-of-the-art wind tunnel facilities is set to give the team the technology they need to become title challengers once again in the next few seasons.

Heading into the 2023 season however, McLaren are behind schedule, with the MCL60 not where the team would like it in terms of performance according to new team principal Andrea Stella.

With Red Bull reportedly sniffing around the McLaren driver, it looks increasingly likely that Norris will take his services elsewhere in order to secure a championship title, should McLaren not be able to provide the Brit with a winning car in the near future.
