Lando Norris is arguably one of the most popular names in the Formula 1 paddock, and he has amassed millions of followers on social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter as well as streaming on Twitch.

But the 22-year-old revealed this week in an interview with The Sun that he had received online abuse and death threats. And he’s not the only one – his girlfriend, Portuguese model Luisinha Oliveira, has apparently also been the victim of an influx of hate.

“Whether it’s my personal life, me and my girlfriend, especially the amount of hate pages dedicated to Luisinha now. It’s pretty awful,” Norris said. “They’re on Instagram and Twitter, that are the main ones. It’s not an easy thing because if you come from such a different life from Formula 1, that’s the biggest contrast.
