Lando Norris photographed with his model girlfriend in Spain after 1-year anniversary

Lando Norris is currently P7 in the Drivers' Championship

After a solid first half of the season, McLaren F1 driver Lando Norris appears to be enjoying some downtime with Portuguese model girlfriend Luisinha Oliveira.

The pair were spotted enjoying the Spanish sun on the Balearic Island of Ibiza, whilst spending a day at the beach.

The young couple went public about their relationship earlier in the year, with Norris posting a picture of himself and the 22-year-old model in Dubai, with the caption “my sunshine”.

The post amassed over 1.5 million likes on Instagram, with the news seemingly pleasing their fans.

Oliveira was spotted at the British Grand Prix supporting the McLaren driver on at his home race, where he claimed a strong sixth place finish in front of the Silverstone crowd.

Norris has once again been the star performer for McLaren, with team-mate Daniel Ricciardo failing to deliver results once again.

The British driver currently sits P7 in the Drivers’ Championship on 76 points, whereas Ricciardo occupies a disappointing 12th place and just 19 points.

As a result of the 33-year-old’s 2022 struggles, McLaren are currently fifth in the Constructors’ Championship, four points behind the Alpine F1 Team.

Norris’ best result of the season so far came fairly early in the campaign, as the Brit claimed his only podium of the season at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

His second-best result of the year again came towards the start of the season, as Norris finished fifth at the Australian Grand Prix.

McLaren have fallen off the pace of the top three this season, which has seen Norris fighting more often in the ‘best of the rest’ squabble.

He’s had a number of P7 finishes this year, whilst also claiming the fastest lap at the Monaco Grand Prix where he finished sixth.

Norris has been questioned many times about the poor performances by his team-mate, a topic the British driver usually fails to comment on.

The McLaren star has told the media that Ricciardo has access to all of his data, something he wouldn’t usually let happen.

It comes as McLaren look to get ahead of Alpine in the second half of the season, which resumes at the end of August with possibly the last Belgian Grand Prix.
