During the summer break, the Formula 1 drivers also go on holiday. Lewis Hamilton made the trip of a lifetime and, together with his brothers, went in search of his roots in Africa.

The seven-time world champion has been spending his free time well, according to a message he wrote on Instagram. Together with his brothers, the Briton took a trip to Africa, which he had been dreaming about for years, in order to search for his roots. Hamilton: "This year I’m spending my summer break doing something I’ve wanted to do for years. I’m finally tracing my roots through Africa and guys, to say this journey has been a grounding experience is an understatement."

Hamilton seems a renewed person after his trip through the continent: "This has been a life changing reset. I feel like I have gained a new perspective on life, grown an even stronger love for animals and became even closer with my brothers who I’ve shared this special journey with." Below you can see the photos and the message the Brit posted. The Mercedes driver says: "Words and pictures do not do it justice."
