SEE: Epic island adventures, spending time with family - Here's what F1 drivers up to during their holiday break


It's been an incredible season so far in 2019 filled with controversy and action-packed races (at least some of the time). August sees drivers and teams taking a break from racing action for three whole weeks.

So what are our F1 drivers up to during their little holiday?

Mercedes ace Lewis Hamilton is enjoying epic island scenery with his brother, while Red Bull's Max Verstappen has decided to try out some new sports, one of them being golf.

McLaren's Carlos Sainz is having a pool day with his K9 friend, and Alfa Romeo's Kimi Raikkonen is travelling with his family before going to visit Finland.

Haas' Kevin Magnussen used the time to tie the knot with his beautiful bride.

If you're at Mercedes, you might show off your dance moves:

We take a look at few drivers and what they are currently up to on their break from the track. It should be noted that many drivers are loathed to share their private life via social media.
