Find out where Formula 1 drivers are spending their summer holidays

Formula 1 is in the middle of its now traditional month-long summer break. But where are the drivers spending their holidays? RacingNews365.com reveals all...

Lewis Hamilton

After spending some time on the water with MotoGP star Fabio Quartararo, Hamilton travelled to the African continent for a trip "I've wanted to do for years". His first stop was Namibia, where he explored the desert and experienced a hot air balloon ride.

George Russell

Hamilton's teammate, George Russell, has travelled to the island of Mallorca after an impressive start to his time at Mercedes, sharing photos of himself relaxing on a boat.

Charles Leclerc

Charles Leclerc has been spending time in Bonifacio, on the island of Corsica, as he switches off from a rollercoaster first half of the season. His thoughts have quickly returned to F1, though, as he followed up with a gym shot captioned: "Missing racing already. I'm ready."

Carlos Sainz

After dabbling in his side passion of golf, Carlos Sainz is another driver to be spending time on a boat. There is one rule for Sainz during his time off, as he adds that he is "always active!"

Lando Norris

As the 'best of the rest' driver at the halfway point of the season, Lando Norris started his summer break with another celebration, marking one year with his partner.

Daniel Ricciardo

With his F1 future up in the air, Daniel Ricciardo made an appearance on social media a few days ago full of smiles as he relaxed in a swimming pool and recharged his batteries.

Fernando Alonso

After joking about driving "non-stop" at his own kart track in Spain, Alonso headed off on holiday with his partner, also taking the opportunity to relax on the water.

Esteban Ocon

Following news of teammate Alonso's switch from Alpine to Aston Martin, and the drama surrounding Oscar Piastri, who looks set to join McLaren, Esteban Ocon almost broke the internet with an amusing social post from his holiday destination of choice: Sardinia.

Valtteri Bottas

Valtteri Bottas has gone back over the Atlantic Ocean for his summer vacation, opting to explore the US state of Wyoming with partner and professional cyclist Tiffany Cromwell.

Mick Schumacher

Continuing the theme of drivers taking to the water during the summer break, Mick Schumacher has been relaxing on a boat with the simple caption "off the grid".

Alex Albon

Fresh from signing a new deal with Williams, Alex Albon teed off his summer break with a round of golf in the sun – following in the footsteps of F1 golfers Norris and Sainz.

What about Max Verstappen?

Max Verstappen has been silent on his social media channels since taking an impressive victory at the Hungarian Grand Prix, as has teammate Sergio Perez.

But Verstappen's partner, Kelly Piquet, has been sharing several stories on Instagram of the pair holidaying and relaxing with her daughter, Penelope.

Last year, Verstappen used the break to take his private jet to the Caribbean and Sint Maarten, which is a constituent country of the Netherlands.
