Lewis Hamilton enjoys F1 off season as he surfs with legend Kelly Slater

Category : F1 , Motorsport , Sport

LEWIS HAMILTON is making the most of his post-season break away from Formula One as he tried his hand at surfing.
The 34-year-old teamed up 11-time world champion Kelly Slater who showed him the ropes out at sea, with the Brit proving he’s more than capable.

Donning a wet suit and taking to his board, Hamilton was taught a number of tricks by the American legend, before gliding at ease on his own.
The five-time F1 world champ uploaded a video of himself surfing on a glum and gloomy day in California, showing himself perfectly executing tube riding.
Captioning the Instagram post, he said: “New year, new sport, time to learn new things.
“Thank you #goat Kelly Slater for teaching me! That was rad.”

Slater – widely considered to be the best surfer of all time – could compete at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics having not confirmed or denied if he will take part when his sport makes his debut at the Games.
And Hamilton has lots of time to perfect his technique with the new F1 season not due to start until March with the Australian Grand Prix.
While he is due to take part in testing in Barcelona on February 18.
The Brit star has been enjoying himself in America, having just bought a stunning New York penthouse in Manhattan for £32m.

Category : Explainers , Motorsport , Sport

But the Spaniard said: “I don’t think about the future or the past; I focus on the present. Next year I will have pressure to win and the desire to win.
“Not letting your guard down is easy – you only have to think about 2015, when we’d just won 13 races in the previous year and we started the year understanding nothing.
“I get the impression that people think winning is easy, but it never is. Bad moments will come, that’s for sure, anyone who has been a sportsperson knows it.”
When and where is MotoGP Australia?
Race day is Sunday, October 28 at Phillip Island.
It will commence at 5am UK time.
Marquez is on pole with qualifying having taken place at 6.10am on Saturday.
What TV channel is it on and can I live stream the action?
BT Sport 2 will show Moto GP Australia 2018 live from 4.30am on Sunday, October 28.

You can also follow all the action on btsport.com.
Honda have won the title – what will they concentrate on in the final three races?
Said Marquez: “New ideas. These [final] races can be used to try concepts for next year’s bikes, and that’s the plan.
“We want to understand why we always stress the front and why almost always we have to use the hardest available tyre at the front.”
