In a clip on Mercedes F1 Team's official YouTube page, Hamilton discussed his time with these dogs, addressing fans' questions - where he revealed in detail how Roscoe got his name and how he decided to pick him.
"I don't know I just thought it was a cool name. I remember being online, looking online for rescues.
"There's some page I found that had like 1,000 bulldogs and I just went through all of them and then I came across this one picture and I was like that's him.
"And that was like one of the best decisions I ever took in my life."
When asked about how he likes to spend his time during the summer and winter breaks from F1, Hamilton also shared that Roscoe likes to be carted around on a quadbike.
"In the summer I love to like go on motorbike tours," Hamilton said. "Through the mountains with my friends and we stop usually and we'll paintball halfway through.
"Roscoe likes going on the quad bike. I remember putting him on at one time and then I put him down and he kept on trying to get back on so I just take he just likes being lazy and being taken around."
