Lewis Hamilton replies to shocked fan

Lewis Hamilton's beloved dog Roscoe is a favourite paddock member amongst his fans.

Lewis Hamilton left a fan speechless, after replying to one of their comments.

The seven-time World Champion has posted plenty of Roscoe content since the start of the summer break, with one fan having asked the Mercedes star if he’d gotten any better at skateboarding.

This is because Hamilton previously posted a video of Roscoe on a skateboard, to which a fan asked the 103-time race winner: “I wonder if roscoe hamilton is getting better at skateboarding nowadays pls update.”

Hamilton did give an update and jokingly said: “He’s close to going pro.”

A fan of the Mercedes star, @xxoMarina, then commented under Hamilton’s tweet: “You do realize we’re gonna have to see proof now.”

The Stevenage-born driver failed to give proof of Roscoe’s improved skateboarding skills, after informing the fan that “He’s asleep”.

Hamilton posted a photo of Roscoe sleeping on a chair along with his comment.

The fan couldn’t believe that Hamilton replied to her comment, in what was a wholesome moment.

The veteran appears to be enjoying his summer break being back with his beloved dog, who was present in the paddock at the British Grand Prix.

Hamilton has done well to bounce back from a disappointing 2022 campaign, which has seen him end the first half of the season just a point off third in the Drivers’ Championship.

Fernando Alonso currently sits in third but has been quickly caught by his former McLaren partner in recent races.
