The gesture surely made Nic feel good, considering he won’t be seeing his elder brother for a long time. The distance doesn’t seem to affect the siblings as they take the time to keep traditions going.

Nic, who is currently racing for RoKit Racing, had recently extended his contract with the team. In similar news, Hamilton’s contract extension was also big news around the paddocks in Austria.
