The Briton introduced Roscoe to the Hamilton family in 2013, and has had him ever since. From getting a passport several years back, Roscoe is now a common feature on Lewis’ travels throughout the F1 season.

At the ongoing Styrian Grand Prix, F1 photographer Kym Illman spotted Hamilton’s close companion on track.

Roscoe takes a tour of the Red Bull Ring

Various F1 drivers do a traditional walk around the track ahead of any Grand Prix weekend. This helps them prepare for getting their cars out on track during the weekend, noting any changes made over the years.

This time however, Hamilton‘s dog Roscoe took to the Red Bull Ring ahead of free practice on Friday. In this photograph taken by Illman, the British bulldog is seen at the side of the track with Hamilton’s personal trainer, Angela Cullen.

Roscoe is quite a popular pet on social media. In fact, the British bulldog has his social media account which has over 300k followers on Instagram, and he occasionally does modeling gigs.

Moreover, Hamilton has Roscoe on a vegan diet just like himself, which Lewis believes has done wonders for the latter’s health. Hence, it’s no surprise that this image is creating quite the wave on social media this weekend.
