Norris’ nod to idol Rossi


McLaren’s Lando Norris honored his childhood idol Valentino Rossi on Thursday and revealed that they exchanged text messages ahead of the Italian MotoGP player’s final race this weekend.

Norris, 21, donned a Rossi tribute helmet at the 2019 Italian Grand Prix, and the two have been in touch ever since they met at Silverstone that same year. “He just sent me a message last night because he has the final race of his career ahead of him,” Norris said. “These are sad times. I will miss him. This was the guy I watched when I was four, five, six years old. He brought me to the race, first put me on a motorcycle, – added Norris.
