Lando Norris can expect 'bill' for beaching supercar

Lando Norris has capped an excellent first season in Formula 1 by winning ‘Rookie of the Year’, as voted for by fans via the official Formula 1 website.

Norris, George Russell and Alex Albon all stated their cases for why they should win the vote in a hilarious video.

While Alex Albon may have won the official ‘Rookie of the Year’ award at the FIA Prize Giving Gala in Paris last week, it is Norris who was the clear winner when the vote was put to the fans.

66,240 votes went to Norris, who won with a 76% share of the vote. Alex Albon was second with 13,582 votes (16%) and 8% went for George Russell, who accumulated 7,100 votes.

All three drivers feature in the top 10 drivers of the season as voted for Formula 1 team bosses, as well as our own alternative top 10 list.
