The reigning world champion still has to agree on a deal with Mercedes in order to secure his place on the grid. In the meantime, the Brit has been spending his time cross-country skiing.

Max Verstappen

Dutch ace Max Verstappen has made the most of his winter holiday, spending time with his new girlfriend Kelly Piquet, who is the daughter of former three-time world champion Nelson Piquet.

Charles Leclerc

Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc spent some time riding the sand dunes in the Middle East with his girlfriend. The Monegasque also spent some time recovering from the coronavirus after contracting the virus earlier in January.

Daniel Ricciardo

Australian Daniel Ricciardo has been spending time in Los Angeles engaging in a variety of activities. Watch him make this shot from half-court as he tries his hand at basketball.

Lando Norris

British driver Lando Norris has been getting into the Christmas spirit with the McLaren driver posting the image below wishing everyone a happy holiday.

Carlos Sainz

Ever the racer, Carlos Sainz shared this video of him karting at an indoor kart track complete with music from Mario Kart!

Valtteri Bottas

Sticking with the motorsport theme, Valtteri Bottas has been hard at work sharpening his skills in a rally car. Let's hope he can take the fight to Hamilton this year.

Fernando Alonso

Alpine driver Fernando Alonso will make his return to Formula 1 this year and the Spanish ace has been hard at work preparing for the season.

Mick Schumacher

The German youngster will make his much-anticipated Formula 1 debut this year. Mick has been enjoying his time off spending quality time with his dog.

Pierre Gasly

Gasly like Leclerc has been spending his time on the sand dunes though his method of navigating the undulations seems a bit more unique.

As you can see the drivers have found several avenues to amuse themselves. Let us know which one was your favourite.
