Hailing from Bristol, Lando burst onto the motorsport scene at only 7 years old by entering karting competitions. He quickly gained attention by winning numerous junior championships, showcasing exceptional racecraft. His emergence marked the start of a journey that would take him all the way to Formula 1 stardom.
After dominating karting, Lando joined the prestigious McLaren Young Driver Programme in 2017 aged 17. This provided him access to top coaching and facilities to hone his driving skills.
Just a year later, Lando excelled by becoming the youngest ever Formula 2 champion at 18, securing 7 race wins in a dominant season. This cemented his reputation as a generational talent, earning him a promotion to a Formula 1 race seat with McLaren for 2019.
Since his debut, Lando has taken F1 by storm. After impressing as a rookie, he scored his first podium in 2020 before achieving a historic and dramatic first Grand Prix victory at Monaco in 2021 aged just 21. He is now firmly established as one of the most exciting drivers on the grid.
What Makes Lando Special
For me, what makes Lando stand out is his blend of prodigious natural talent and supreme racecraft. His incredible car control and single lap pace often place his car higher than it deserves. He also possesses maturity beyond his years – able to manage pressure, race strategically and deliver consistent results.
Moreover, Lando boasts an engaging personality with his love of banter and fun. But he combines this well with a steely determination and professionalism about his racing. For these reasons and more, he is adored by fans and tipped for world championships in the future.
Having already achieved so much, I‘m thrilled to continue following the next phase of Lando‘s career. Alongside teammate Daniel Ricciardo, he‘ll be aiming to re-establish McLaren as a force in Formula 1 after years in the doldrums. I‘m convinced that with his skillset, he can compete for titles soon, whether with McLaren or a front-running team like Mercedes or Ferrari.
At just 23, the scary thing is Lando still has his best years ahead of him. As he gains experience, I predict he will only improve further and achieve even greater feats. I can‘t wait to cheer him on all the way and watch as this prodigious talent writes his name into the history books. He is undoubtedly one of Formula 1‘s most exciting prospects.
