Lando Norris is arguably one of the most popular names in the Formula One paddock, having amassed millions of followers across 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 has received online abuse and death threats. And he’s not the only one: his girlfriend, Portuguese model Luisinha Oliveira, has also apparently seen a wave of hate.

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