Formula 1 star Lando Norris has been pictured teaming up with the Red Arrows ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

McLaren shared a photo of their driver - who is used to high-speed thrills - in the cockpit of one of the Red Arrows' jets and their green coveralls ahead of the F1 finale this weekend.

The RAF Aerobatic Display Team also shared a photo of the British driver on Twitter, with one of the team's jets in the background. 

"Lando Norris. Ready for flight," the Red Arrows tweeted.

The McLaren F1 Team tweeted "Lando Norris, reporting for duty", with the pictures of Norris appearing to be part of Sky Sports F1's coverage of the race weekend.

The Red Arrows are in the United Arab Emirates as part of a tour of the Gulf and earlier this week completed a flypast over Abu Dhabi.
