How the Formula 1 drivers celebrated Christmas.

Many sports around the world require athletes to spend a lot of time away from their families, including at Christmas time.

Thankfully for Formula 1 drivers though the season finishes perfectly in time for Christmas, and here is what they got up to…

Romain Grosjean was rocking the Christmas jumper, and it looked like his boss Guenther Steiner had provided some artwork for the tree.

His Haas team-mate Kevin Magnussen though was having a more low-key celebration. Straight to the point.

Maybe he needed some artwork from Lando Norris to spice up his post?

Lewis Hamilton’s dog Roscoe provided the music – let’s be honest, it made a welcome change from the same old Christmas songs.

The Verstappen family meanwhile were all together for the holidays.

After the season Williams have had, nobody could blame George Russell for waiting with anticipation to see what gifts were coming his way.

Sergio Perez channeled the true spirit of Christmas and offered a lovely message to his followers.

There were no winter blues for Pierre Gasly – it looked lovely and warm as he wished everyone a Merry Christmas.
