One F1 driver's young daughter has stolen the spotlight from her father with an adorable moment in the paddock.

Not many drivers in the sport have children, but those who do are sometimes seen at the circuit with their families, who they spend a large chunk of the year away from.

Only three F1 drivers do have children: Sergio Perez has three, Kevin Magnussen two, and Nico Hulkenberg one.

Indeed, it was the Magnussen's three-year-old daughter who was seen insisting that her father sign an autograph for a grateful fan.

The Dane has not had the desired start to the 2024 season, having picked up only a single race point to compliment a host of penalty points which has left him on the verge of a race ban.

A huge collision in Monaco with fellow fathers Perez and Hulkenberg re-iterated the dangers that play on the minds of all drivers, perhaps especially those with children.

However, Magnussen is still able to enjoy his time out of the car, particularly those shared with his young family.

Drivers regularly stop in the paddock to pose for photos and sign autographs, but the Haas driver had to be alerted by his daughter to the fact that he had missed out one fan seeking to have their notebook signed.

As the 31-year-old continued walking, it was clear his daughter had spotted the fan and tried to point them out to her father.

She scooted after her dad and tugged on his jacket, before pointing at the fan, leading Magnussen to return smiling and sign his name.

Once Magnussen's daughter had alerted him to the supporter, it was clear he could not ignore the wishes of the fan, and especially not the demands of his young child.
