Lewis Hamilton arrives at British GP with fan favourite

Lewis Hamilton's limelight was stolen ahead of the 2023 British GP.

Lewis Hamilton arrived to media day at the British Grand Prix on Thursday with a fan favourite: his bulldog Roscoe.

The seven-time World Champion and Roscoe both turned up at the Silverstone International Circuit wearing outfits, something which certainly caught the attention of several photographers.

The duo were photographed several times as they entered the paddock, with the official F1 account on Twitter having captured the moment they arrived.

“You know it’s British Grand Prix week when @LewisHamilton rocks up with Roscoe!” wrote F1 on Twitter.

“Loving the outfits as well, you two.”

Roscoe is very much loved by Hamilton and the F1 community, with the dog having over 750,000 followers on his own Instagram account.

Whilst his lavish lifestyle is often seen through his own account, Roscoe tends to feature in posts on Hamilton’s own social media channels.

Several fans shared their delight at seeing Hamilton and Roscoe enter the paddock together, by commenting under F1’s video.

“I’m here for the wholesome #Roscoe content…” commented @pitlane_girl.

“The aura that follows this man. Handsome Ham and his son 🐾🐾 fill so many with joy and happiness,” wrote @hammertimev.

Another, @Go_SYH_In_A_Pig said: “The GOAT and his owner Lewis.”

Hamilton will be hoping that having Roscoe in the garage for his home weekend will bring him some good luck, after enduring a difficult Austrian Grand Prix.

Mercedes struggled for outright pace at the Red Bull Ring, which left the 103-time race winner to finish in eighth.

He’ll be targeting a podium at the very least at Silverstone, a venue where he has so many fond memories.

The likelihood is that Red Bull will once again dominate this weekend; however, Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff recently admitted that the British GP is the Silver Arrows’ best chance of winning this season.

Hamilton does have some upgrades at his disposal this weekend, which he’ll be hoping will increase his chances of being able to battle reigning World Champion Max Verstappen.

He did finish on the podium last season following a sensational scrap with Sergio Perez and Charles Leclerc, which saw the 38-year-old pull off one of the overtakes of the season at the final corner.
