Lewis Hamilton is one of the most popular figures in Formula One today. Although he has a dominant presence on every racetrack, his personal life off-track is quite attractive to many fans.
One aspect of his personal life is his British bulldog, Roscoe. The Briton introduced Roscoe to the Hamilton family in 2013, and has had him ever since.
From getting a passport several years back, Roscoe is now a common feature on Lewis’ travels throughout the F1 season.
Various F1 drivers do a traditional walk around the track ahead of any Grand Prix weekend. This helps them prepare for getting their cars out on track during the weekend, noting any changes made over the years.

Roscoe is quite a popular pet on social media. In fact, the British bulldog has his social media account which has over 300k followers on Instagram, and he occasionally does modeling gigs.
Moreover, Hamilton has Roscoe on a vegan diet just like himself, which Lewis believes has done wonders for the latter’s health.
Hamilton qualified for today’s race in P3. However, the Briton will start the Styrian Grand Prix on the front row in P2 due to Valtteri Bottas‘ three-place grid penalty.
Although the defending world champion admitted Mercedes are far from Red Bull‘s pace, he will hope his experience can help him edge out Verstappen to close the gap in the driver’s championship.
