Lando Norris is arguably one of the most popular names in the Formula One paddock, and he has 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 apparently seen an influx of hate as well.

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