Lando Norris and Alex Albon are gearing up for the Saudi Arabian GP scheduled to take place this weekend – they recently caught up with cycling star Tadej Pogacar.
Two-time Tour de France Champion Tadej Pogacar had a wholesome meeting with F1 stars Alex Albon and Lando Norris. The Slovenian cyclist shared a picture of himself with the two drivers and their girlfriends and wrote: “Well, this was unexpected. A bit starstruck…now I know how it feels like.” That’s a pretty humble statement coming from one of the star athletes in world sports at the moment.
Norris and Albon will soon be travelling to Jeddah for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. McLaren’s Norris had a race to forget at the Bahrain GP, finishing 17th while Williams driver Albon had a decent outing and earned a valuable 1 point for his team, finishing in tenth spot in the season opener at the Sakhir International Circuit. Meanwhile, Tadej Pogacar scripted history last week by winning the 81st edition of the Paris-Nice event.

“Lando and Albon should be the one starstruck here, what Tadej does is out of this world”, wrote a fan.
“Tadej looks kind of small while Albon is huge here..I first learn about zone 2 training with the professor who is apparently Tadej’s trainer.Nice collisions, normally Football meet F1, and now first time cycling meet F1”, commented another fan.
“It just occurred to me that Lando is like a 5th wheel. Lilly is Alex Albion’s girlfriend, I suspect the blonde next to pogacar is his girl. Lando must have gatecrashed the double date”, joked another fan.
