His career rocketed in 2017 after becoming the youngest driver to win the FIA Formula 3 European Championship. With a total of nine outright victories, the Bristol-born racer finished 53 points ahead of his next competitor.
Lando ended his 2018 season with one of his most successful years to date. The 19-year-old finished as runner-up in the highly competitive Formula 2 series with a total of nine podiums to his name, and continued his duties as test and reserve driver for the prestigious McLaren Formula 1 team.
He also got his first taste of endurance racing, where he and team-mates Fernando Alonso and Philip Hanson contested in the 24 Hours of Daytona. A 13th place finish was achieved.
In September of last year it was announced that Lando would drive for McLaren full-time in their 2019 F1 campaign, partnering the Spanish driver Carlos Sainz.
