Bayern Munich divided over F1 drivers

While training commenced at the Sabener Strasse, Bayern Munich players were asked to reveal their favourite Formula 1 drivers.

In a landslide victory, Hamilton emerged as the top choice, with six votes from players including Harry Kane, Manuel Neuer, and Serge Gnabry.

Verstappen only received two votes, from Konrad Laimer and Matthijs de Ligt, while Lando Norris, Pierre Gasly, and McLaren young gun Oscar Piastri each received one vote from Leon Goretzka, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Raphael Guerreiro respectively.

Bayern Munich's season hasn't quite gone according to plan. Their dominance in the Bundesliga was unexpectedly challenged by Bayer Leverkusen, who clinched their first-ever Bundesliga title.
