F1’s Lando Norris talks about death threats, online abuse

Lando Norris is perhaps one of the most popular names in the F1 paddock and he has amassed millions of followers on social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter, as well as streaming on Twitch.

But the 22-year-old revealed this week in an interview with The Sun that he had received online abuse and death threats. And he’s not the only one – his girlfriend, Portuguese model Luisinha Oliveira, has apparently also seen an influx of hate.

“Whether it’s about my personal life, me and my girlfriend, especially the amount of hate pages dedicated to Luisinha now. It’s pretty terrifying,” Norris said. “They’re on Instagram and Twitter, they’re the main ones. It’s not easy because if you come from such a different life in Formula 1, it’s the biggest contrast.
