Hamilton: Perfect preparation for the F1 season ahead

Four times F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton has hit the slopes in Japan during his off-season getting away with some Monster-backed snowboarders, from the furore that broke out in the wake of his ill-timed ‘boys don’t wear princess dresses’ Instagram post.

Hamilton, along with Kevin Backstrom, Tor Lundstrom and Halldor Helgason, made their way to Hokkaido Island where they did snow-boarding, rode on snow bikes and ski-doos, while Hamilton also did a spot of surfing in the icy waters nearby.

Hamilton said,”It was so good to be able to go on a trip like this at the start of 2018. It was so enjoyable to hang out with some incredible athletes and push my skills on a board – the perfect preparation for the F1 season ahead.”
