McLaren racer Lando Norris is a man of many talents. Apart from being a full-time Formula 1 racer, he has a giant sim-racing set at his home which he used profusely during the lockdown to participate in the online Grands Prix which were aired on the Formula 1 YouTube channel. Not only that, the Belgian-British racer has his own vlogging channel on YouTube as well, where he frequently shares videos about his experiences in and around the paddocks.

While Lando’s vlogging and his e-racing is now known to many, only a few fans noticed how Lando Norris played DJ at Max Verstappen’s birthday party which the Dutchman celebrated prior to the Singapore Grand Prix. While the McLaren prodigy fiddled with the turntables, fans flooded Twitter with their support for the talented racer who likes to take up new “hobbies” from time to time.

And now, Lando’s latest “hobby” seems to be photography. Eagle-eyed fans wasted no time in spotting the Instagram account that Lando Norris has created to share all the snaps that he has taken at various places that he often visits. And, to many fans’ delight, the account has also got some Daniel Ricciardo candids that Lando took of his teammate at McLaren.

Just like Lando’s official account, a same trend could be seen in the number of followers on Lando Norris’ photography account, which is called “lando.jpg”. Although the first picture posted there dates back to only about a week ago, the account already boasts a follower count of 212,000. In the biography section, Lando kept it simple with a short message saying–“Every photo taken by me.” And the account follows only two people–Lando himself, and Ashley Bibby, a member of the Lando Norris team.
