With the F1 season still over a month away from kicking off, drivers are busy at home resting, recuperating, and spending quality time with their loved ones. When the season gets underway in full swing, drivers won’t be able to spend time with their significant others because of the tight schedule and quarantine protocols.
So, it’s only reasonable that they make the most of the time they currently have. Today being Valentine’s day, let’s take a look at a few drivers who spread the love on social media, wishing not just their wives but also their fans.
Mercedes F1 driver Valtteri Bottas took to Instagram to post two pictures with his wife, Tiffany Cromwell. One of them was a snap of the duo walking together down a scenic street, the other was a pic of the duo cycling together. He accompanied the two pics with a simple caption, ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ followed by a heart emoji.
Red Bull ace Max Verstappen was another driver who posted about the day of love. Unlike Bottas, he didn’t put out an Instagram post but instead uploaded a picture on Instagram Stories. It was a selfie with his girlfriend, Kelly Piquet, with a text that said ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ and a tag of Piquet’s account. The snap was most likely clicked when they were out for a trackside trip in Spain.
Former Haas driver Romain Grosjean was another one to post about Valentine’s day. The Frenchman posted a pic of himself and his wife holding each other. He accompanied it with a caption that read, “My Valentine. Wishing you all good day with your loved one.”
The fourth driver to put out a post on the same was Williams F1’s Nicholas Latifi. The Canadian put a pic of himself during an interview last year where there were many bouquets of flowers. The caption on the post read, “Decisions, decisions. Red or White?! Happy Valentine’s Day guys.”
Three of the four aforementioned drivers would soon have to leave for Bahrain. The pre-season tests, lasting three days, begin on March 12. The time off with their families should help drivers recharge their batteries and should help them come back harder in 2021.
