Yeah I think Papa Norris paid for Lando to be the reserve driver in 2018 and possibly to be a driver in 2019. Idk if there is still an agreement or not. Id doubt it. His pace speaks for himself at this point.

I dont have a problem with pay drivers as long as they are good. Most drivers are pay drivers tbh. Some are sponsored by companies, others by family.
