Lewis Hamilton was seen walking his bulldog Roscoe at Spanish Formula One Grand Prix.
The 2008 world champion has obtained a special VIP pass for his dog, complete with a photograph of the dog wearing trendy headphones, but abandoned plans to bring his pooch to last month's Bahrain Grand Prix because Roscoe was reported to be unwell.
The dog has acquired cult status for some fans of the Mercedes driver as he regularly posts photographs of Roscoe on Twitter.
The F1 driver keeps posting cute pictures of his dog on Twitter.
