Lando Norris will make a logical choice but that he already expects to be in his country: this winter he will move his main residence from England to Monaco.
Of course, the McLaren driver does not hide the financial interest in the case, in order to pay less taxes, which is why Lewis Hamilton is still regularly in his country, or Jenson Button in his time.
The Briton explained it in the media before the Saudi Arabian GP.
“That’s what a lot of drivers do, and after F1 I also saw that for some drivers the fall could be big. So I have to think about my future.”
“I understand of course that there will be criticisms but people all do, at their level, things to preserve their money. That’s what I can logically do on my own, ”Norris admits bluntly.
“I love my country, it is probably still my favorite even though I have already visited so many countries. My family is there, my friends. Fun has always been my priority, which is why it is not a easy decision. And it hasn’t been thought of in years. I’m now comfortable with the idea. “
With this choice, Norris therefore moves away from Woking, the factory where he goes very often.
“It was handy in my early years, I last went there when I wanted, after a bad weekend, to the simulator, to have meetings with my engineers. There was a lot to be gained in my early days in F1 by being so close but not so much anymore. I continue to learn but not in the same way. “
“A lot of things will stay the same, it’s just that I will be based in a different location. Maybe I will play less golf, it will probably be the worst thing but there must be some courses in the south of the France !”
“I will still be able to stream on Twitch, the interaction with my fans will not change. In everyday life that will not change. And I even think that I will go to McLaren more often than this year because all the the rules change in 2022. “
