Lewis Hamilton is loving life in his custom motorhome, the Formula 1 champion staying at the circuits rather than hotels in 2020.
The current F1 season is strange for many reasons, but for the drivers, staying at the circuits rather than in luxurious hotels is certainly a change that has taken some getting used to.
For Hamilton however, it was a change that he had already instigated in 2019.
He explained: "When I was in karting when I was younger and I used to live in a motorhome it was a lot different to the one I have now. I remember travelling around the whole of the UK in a motorhome and it was some of the best days of my life to be honest.
“This one, you can’t travel in it but it expands out and there’s – I have my own room and my own little private section. I have my little recording travel kit that I take around with me so I can do music.
“I have my PlayStation, so I travel with my PlayStation gaming setup so I like to play online at night. Last weekend I played online with Pierre Gasly. We played Call of Duty together and sometimes Charles [Leclerc] comes online as well. Otherwise yeah, you’re watching movies."
Hamilton shares his motorhome with physio Angela Cullen, but this is as far as the six time champion expands his social bubble as he is unable to socialise with the other drivers despite residing only a few metres away.
He added: “I stay with Angela, so it’s just me and Angela. She has her own room and Roscoe sleeps in the living room and I usually have physio in the evening and Roscoe goes second.
“I don’t go and hang with anybody, particularly during this time. Last year, perhaps if you were in a campsite with everyone you could probably have a barbecue together, but we’re not doing that obviously now.”
