F1 stars are making the most of the F1 summer break which will continue till August 26
F1 stars Lewis Hamilton, Charles Leclerc, Alex Albon, Lando Norris, Fernando Alonso, and Valtteri Bottas among others are making the most of their one-month-long summer break. While Leclerc, Russell, and Norris seem to be on a trip, Alonso is trying his hand at karting and Albon is spending most of his time at the golf course. F1 doesn’t return to action until the Belgian GP on August 26.
The F1 summer break is the period between the final race in July – for 2022 this is the Hungarian GP on 29-31 July – until the first race back in late August or early September. This year that’s the Belgian GP on 26-28 August. There will be no official F1 track action for an entire month, with the teams reconvening at the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps on the 26-28 August.
The F1 summer break implies over three weeks off from the grind of the F1 circus and traveling the world, and while all involved will get to enjoy some well-deserved time off, it doesn’t mean everything shuts down for the entire period.
During this period, teams cannot work on car design, development, or parts production, including planning or holding meetings. Wind tunnels or machining parts are also not allowed to be run at any time during the 14 days, but essential work like service and maintenance is permitted.
Fans react to pictures of F1 stars enjoying their summer break
Fans always love to see behind the scenes snippets of their favourite F1 stars. Let us take a look at few of the most interesting reactions.
“Everyone is doing basically nothing but Alonso still has a steering wheel between his hands. He’s a real racing driver. Never stops”, wrote a fan.
“Tough choice for Lando, looking casual on a private jet or off his rocket in Ibiza”, joked another fan.
“Alonso is the kind of workaholic guy who brings his work pc and phone with him at vacation so he can keep doing his job thousands of kilometers away. But what a cool tool he got lmao”, tweeted another fan.
