During his debut season in F1 in 2019, Norris became popular with fans thanks to his various posts and memes on his Twitter and Instagram pages.
Norris explained at the recent Autosport International Show, explained how he felt it was important to use social media to attract younger fans and give them more of an insight into F1 and its drivers.
“I’ve grown up within this, and I’ve always been on social media since I was a little kid, too early maybe for what I should have done," Norris said, as quoted by Crash.net.
“It’s part of my life, giving you guys and fans and whoever is at home a better behind-the-scenes, a better knowledge of what a Formula 1 driver does, how they act, what they get up to and so on.
“That’s just what I want to do, just enjoy it, and give people something that they don’t see with many other drivers.
Norris touched also on his use of Twitch, a site dedicated for streaming of video games and players.
“With streaming on Twitch and just people watching me at home playing on a simulator or playing games or whatever, no other driver does that," Norris added.
“So it’s just to show what I love doing, to give people a better insight of what I get up to, and I hope they like it.”
