Lando Norris, the McLaren driver, will be living next door to rivals Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc, when he leaves the UK for a new home…
Lando Norris of McLaren will be relocating before the end of 2021, as the young British driver has said he will be visiting Monaco.
Norris is likely to follow in the footsteps of rivals like Max Verstappen, Valtteri Bottas, and Lewis Hamilton and move to Monte Carlo, which has long been considered as a haven for Formula One drivers.
On Tuesday, Norris took to social media to share a photo of his new home’s construction, writing, “Say hello to my new home!” The house isn’t ready yet, but while I’m not in the factory or on the track next year, I’ll be living here in Monaco.
“I get the keys at the end of next month, so will hopefully be moving in soon. Really excited for this next chapter!”
Why move to Monaco?
Norris has acknowledged that the move has financial benefits in addition to the beautiful Mediterranean weather. Monaco is a tax haven with no income tax, so you may save a lot of money there.
“It’s something obviously a lot of drivers do,” Norris explained, saying that it made sense for him to safeguard his future in case something goes wrong in his still early career.
“With just how racing is, you’ve seen with a lot of drivers how quickly things can go downhill. I still have to look after my life and things for my future, so that’s why.”
Despite the fact that Norris is no longer in close proximity to McLaren’s headquarters in Woking, he believes his growing experience made the decision easier, and he plans to visit the facility as often as previously.
“Many things remain exactly the same,” he emphasised. “It’s just I’m based in a different place.”
