SunSport told you last month that the F1 world champion flogged his candy red plane because he no longer needed it. But it looked like the Mercedes man,
who recently headed home with Instagram model Zahre Elise after partying at Kevin Hart’s 40th birthday bash, maybe regretted his decision as he stood with his arms folded at Los Angeles International airport.
Hamilton, 34, was seen cruising to the Hollywood knees-up in a persona lised £2.4m Ferrari. But he won’t be getting any social media snaps aboard his private jet any more.
Hamilton took delivery of the Bombardier Challenger 605 in 2013 and it featured regularly on his social media as he used it to jet across the globe.
It also drew criticism after being named in the Paradise Papers – despite him being cleared of any wrong-doing with a VAT payment.
Hamilton’s beloved bulldog Coco was a regular passenger on the jet, flying from LA to London to catch up with pal Roscoe, his other dog.
And the British F1 star reportedly had an argument with the aircraft’s pilot after he found out he had pooped in the driver’s private toilet.
However, Hamilton sold the jet on as it did not make financial sense and it was not in keeping with his views on sustainable living.
The five-time world champion, who is preparing for this weekend’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone, believes in a plant-based diet.
His old jet, which used to have the call sign G-LCDH – his initials Lewis Carl Davidson Hamilton – has now been given a new identity and is owned by private jet firm Saxon Air, who are based at Norwich Airport.
