There's no doubt that Roscoe is the coolest dog in Formula One. 

The now eight-year-old Bulldog is Lewis Hamilton's 'best buddy' as he fondly calls him. Roscoe is often seen at Formula One tracks, after Hamilton revealed in 2018 he had asked Bernie Ecclestone for a pass for his dog, according to UK new site, Metro.

He also has his own passport since he travels the world with his F1-champion bestie.

Earlier in June 2020, Hamilton shared that his other bulldog, Coco, had died after an apparent heart attack. She was just six years old, and suffered several health issues when she was a tiny pup. Hamilton had nursed her and gave her all the love and care she needed, so we can only imagine how devastated the F1 driver was when she died.

Roscoe isn't just known trackside, he's also a professional dog model, who, according to Hamilton and British news sites, earns about $700 a day - that's over R11 000 a day.  And since Coco's death, he has been receiving even more attention than usual, along with extra visits to the track.

He's obviously a member of the Mercedes F1 team, with his own gear.

He's such an adorable furbaby, we wanted to share some of his recent trackside posts:
