    I’m an F1 star with £32m in career earnings but I hate driving – people try to race me at traffic lights

    FORMULA ONE star Lando Norris has revealed he “hates” driving on the road. Norris, 24, is entering his fifth full season with McLaren in F1.

    One encounter on the road saw a driver try to ‘take him on’ while in a McLarenCredit: Twitter/@McLarenF1
    His exploits behind the wheel of an F1 car have marked him out as a one of the fastest drivers on the grid.
    Norris has won 13 podiums throughout his career, including six second place finishes behind and one third last season.
    However, while he has a need for speed on the track when racing against the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, Norris does not enjoy the more pedestrian road driving for that exact reason.
    Appearing on That Peter Crouch Podcast, Norris was asked what his experience driving on the road was, to which he said: “I hate it. I’m more scared on the road than I am in a race car.”
    Norris explained this feeling came from people wanting to take him on in a race when they pull up alongside him.
    He said: “Yeah I’ve had it (people wanting to take me on).
    “I actually had it [when] we were filming something and I was taking a kid to school and I had to go and pick him up from his house in the morning in a McLaren.
    “So he’s sitting beside me, cameras everywhere, driving nicely, speed limit and there’s traffic lights, I’m in my race suit in public and I’m sitting there and someone clocks me on the side.
    Most read in Motorsport
    “I’m like I have a kid here and a TV and I’m like ‘okay’ (gesturing with his thumb) and I put down the window and say hello.
    “And you can tell [he’s ready to go], he’s thinking it. [But] I couldn’t, I have to act a certain way.”
    F1 star Lando Norris’ car collection boasts £166k McLaren GT & 765LT Spider worth £313k… plus VERY humble Fiat 500
    Norris added: “You have those moments but you need to let them have their little bit – I beat him off the line too – just feel good [moments]
    Norris is the son of Adam Norris, who was the 501st richest man in Britain as of 2018, but his talent behind the wheel has also allowed him to earn a cool £32million from his ever-improving McLaren deals.
    The latest renewal will see him remain at the team beyond the end of the 2025 season, with his current terms seeing him pocket £13m a year before possibly rising to £20m from 2026 onwards.
    In 2022 the Sunday Times reported Norris was worth £10m, though he is now estimated to be worth almost £24m.

    Norris has splashed a fair bit of his earnings on a lavish motor collection which includes everything from a McLaren to a Fiat.
    The latter, which was Norris’ first car, is a 1972 Fiat 500 Jolly which has been put up for sale £28,000.
    He has a McLaren 765LT Spider worth £313,000, a £166,000 McLaren GT and allegedly a Rolls Royce Wraith which can set you back up to £324,000.
    Norris has been in action during F1 pre-season testing in Bahrain.
    The lights for the new season go out for the season on March 2.

    The Real Madrid shotstopper, 31, has come a long way since the first car he owned, a Ford Focus.
    After trading that in for a Aston Martin Vanquish, when he hit the big time, the giant Belgium goalkeeper has added some incredible motors to his fleet.
    He had to wait two years for his customised Porsche to made to his specifications, which ended up costing £350,000.
    Courtois is also a fan of Ferrari, as well as Lamborghini.

    Porsche 992 GT3 RS, £350,000
    After two years of waiting, Courtois was handed the keys of this stunning Porsche.
    He parted with £350,000 for the custom-built 992 GT3 RS, which has a top speed of 198mph and can go from 0-60mph in 3.14 seconds.
    Incredibly, the base model costs £212,000, but Courtois added £137,000 worth of extras.

    Lamborghini Urus, £188,000
    The Urus is now the go-to for any self-respecting footballer.
    There once was a huge waiting list for them, but that didn’t stop the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jack Grealish and more splashing the cash on them.
    Courtois is no different, joining football’s elite by owning the stunning SUV.

    Which is why his spacious G-Wagon is the perfect car for him.
    It is, without doubt, the finest SUV on the market. Certainly one of the most luxurious.
    Regular G63’s come with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V-8 engine that makes 577 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.
    The 0-62 mph varies from 4.5 seconds to 6.4 seconds.

    The ex-Chelsea playmaker owned a Vanquish – a ultimate gentleman’s car.
    James Bond star Daniel Craig once owned a limited edition version, which was sold at an auction for £344,000.

    Footballers can own the most pitiful first cars. But Courtois got himself a decent runner.
    As a youth star he drove a sensible Ford Focus, which today cost around £29,000 for the sporty model.
    A winner of multiple awards through the years, they have a great reputation.
    They are also used as touring cars in motorsport, and some can reach speeds of up to 155 mph.

    TC Racing
    In 2023, Courtois launched his own racing team in Formula 4.
    He called, rather unoriginally, TC Racing. But to be fair, not many footballers back up their petrolhead credentials by establishing a race car team.
    Joining forces with Roberto Merhi, a Spanish driver who raced in Japan’s Super GT and F1 back in 2015, they plan on focusing on talent development.
    Belgium international Courtois posted a promotional film for the team on Instagram, announcing: “Here we are.”
    He has yet to nominate TC Racing’s drivers for the 2024 season.

    Hamilton is a self-confessed car fanatic, who collects everything from the latest supercars to vintage classics and even electric vehicles.
    He said previously: “I don’t know anything about wine. I don’t know a huge amount about art.
    “But what I do know is cars, and I’m very particular about them.”
    Here we take a look at just some of his extravagant collection:

    The rarest motor in Hamilton owned was his £1.6m Pagani Zonda that was made entirely for him.
    The exterior and interiors are purple, and at the request of the sports star he opted for a manual gearbox instead of the usual sequential one.
    His reasons? Because he hated getting behind the wheel of it initially.
    He once said: “The Zonda is terrible to drive!
    “It’s the best-sounding car I own, but handling-wise it’s the worst.”
    That could be why in 2015 Hamilton got in an accident that caused some significant damage to the cherished motor.
    Hamilton reportedly sold the motor in 2022.

    1966 SHELBY 427 COBRA
    The highest valued car in Hamilton’s collection is this stunning classic.
    Believed to be worth around £4m, it’s a rare sight – unless you’ve seen the racer cruising along the Pacific Coast Highway in LA.
    Hamilton was often spied taking his ex-missus Nicole Scherzinger for a spin in this beauty, which had him standing out from the crowd.

    Every car aficionado worth their weight in salt owns this £2m Ferrari – another collector’s item that rises in value as the years go by.
    Capable of reaching a top speed of 217 mph, the LaFerrari can hit 0-62 mph in just 2.4 seconds, meaning it’s the fastest car Hamilton owns.
    Footballers including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Son Heung-min also drive this frighteningly fast motor that must feel like handling a racing car.

    Lewis got his hands on a Project One in 2021, even though it wasn’t released until 2022.
    He was heavily involved in the production of the plug-in hybrid sports car that’s capable of hitting a top speed of 217 mph.
    Only 275 were made, and they cost around £2m.
    Getting his hands on one was one of the many perks of his deal with Mercedes.

    He already owned a SL Black Series, so why not add the SLS, right?
    Hamilton, who clearly has a need for speed, added this supercar to his garage probably because it’s the fastest Mercedes in production.
    Powered by a 6.2-litre V8 engine that produces 622bhp – the SLS can reach a top speed of 196 mph.
    It also hits 0-60 in just 3 seconds – making it the ideal car for Hamilton to get his thrills off the track with. For a price tag of £230k, it’s just what you’d expect really.

    Despite splitting with McLaren’s racing team, Hamilton can’t have felt too aggrieved with his former employers. In 2015, he added a £2m P1 to his extensive list of rides.
    The P1 has a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine, which is twinned with an electric motor that means the supercar has a total power and torque output of 903 bhp and 980 Nm of torque.
    In real talk that means it’s fast and powerful, can hit a top speed of 217 mph and hits 0-60 mph in just under 2.7 seconds.

    The second classic car that’s part of his fleet, fans of the Hollywood movie Gone In 60 Seconds might recognise this motor as looking to similar to one of the Eleanor models from the film.
    Hamilton had his customised by Oklahoma-based car shoop Classic Recreations for additional cost.
    At auctions, they can fetch up to £750k, and you can bet Hamilton’s is in tip-top condition. That said, we doubt he’ll ever sell it.
    When the Mercedes-Maybach 6 came out in 2016, Hamilton made sure he got his hands on the concept car.
    The 2×2 coupe is completely electric, and can run up to 200 miles before it’ll need recharging.
    Hamilton also has another Mercedes – the Maybach S600, which is a luxurious chauffeur’s car with a partition separating the front seats from the back.
    Both those motors have a combined worth of around £800k.
    And Hamilton doesn’t mind swapping four wheels for two – sometimes taking his £6,500 Honda CRF450RX Motocross Bike around the dirt tracks of California.
    Then there’s also his Maverick X3 dune buggy that would’ve set him back around £20k, that’s also electric in theme with his eco-warrior status.
    However, with a switch to Ferrari imminent – imagine the company cars he’s got lined up?
