The night of October 31, when the dead come alive around the world ended up knocking on the doors of current and former Formula 1 drivers as well.

A lot of drivers sported interesting costumes, and while some chose to stick with their families at home (Nico Rosberg and Kimi Raikkonen), some attended parties with their girlfriends (Pierre Gasly). The latter of all was spotted with his Ukraine-born girlfriend, Katerine Berezhna.

Which F1 driver wins the 2021 Halloween?

Many including Kimi Raikkonen, Pierre Gasly, Nikita Mazepin, Romain Grosjean, Nico Hulkenberg, and Nico Rosberg, flaunted their respective costumes on social media. But, who do you think would win had there been a competition?

The award would obviously go to the F1’s last Ferrari world champion.

Raikkonen took the Halloween celebration up a notch by converting his massive villa into a rather ominous mansion. Along with the Alfa Romeo driver, his spouse and both his kids portrayed a complete look to Halloween by wearing spooky-enough costumes.

Meanwhile, Grosjean had a hilarious concept too. The Frenchman and his wife, Marian Grosjean, posed for a picture where the latter is chainsawing the ex-Haas driver’s left arm (the one that has been causing troubles since the 2020 Bahrain GP incident).

Formula 1 couldn’t stay quiet on social media

F1’s own Twitter handle just couldn’t resist posting quite amusing tweets on the eve of Halloween. Of course, the one we had been waiting for was the pun-intended driver names. From Howltteri Bottas to Pierre Ghostly to Sebastian Devil, the tweet had it all.
