The driver then joined the McLaren Young Driver Programme in 2017, and won the 2017 FIA Formula 3 European Championship with Carlin Motorsport.
Norris was then promoted to the Formula 2 Carlin team in 2018 where he finished second in the championship. It was then announced that the driver would join the McLaren F1 team in 2018, where he would be driving alongside teammate Carlos Sainz Jr.
In his free time Norris streams himself playing video games and runs the clothing brand Quadrant.
