F1 Social Stint | Hamilton is back on the paddock and comes back in style

It's race week again and so the drivers and teams are preparing for the next Grand Prix. In GPblog.com's F1 Social Stint you can find out what the drivers and teams are doing in preparation for the next Grand Prix.

Hamilton is back on the paddock and comes back in style

Lewis Hamilton has returned after a week's absence due to the coronavirus. Of course the Brit does not make his entrance quietly, because the cameras that manage to take a picture of him still show a unique piece of clothing of the seven-time world champion. Let us say that there is a dispute over taste.

Grosjean shows beautiful farewell helmet he can't use now

After his crash at the Bahrain Grand Prix, Romain Grosjean will not get into a Formula 1 car at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix either.

Unfortunately, Grosjean is now unable to wear this helmet, but he is happy to share it with all his followers.
