And with two weeks off to recalibrate ahead of the Mexico GP, Hamilton has enjoyed some action-packed downtime.

Hamilton went for a sunset drive in a 4×4, enjoyed some surfing, threw on some prosthetics to go undercover at his engineering school and partied hard in New York.

The Brit ace shared the updates to his Instagram.

In one, Hamilton can be seen driving an open-top 4×4 while shielding his eyes from bugs.

The F1 superstar later showed off his impressive watersports skills, revealing: “Surfing with @monsterenergy this week…

“I felt like a kid that didn’t want to get out the bath – asking for 10 more minutes over and over and over.

“Too much fun.”

Hamilton also posed for a snap under the bright lights of New York, captioned: “If you can make it here.”

GOING UNDERCOVER

It’s just the latest in a long line of activities Hamilton has enjoyed during his fortnight break.

Earlier this week, the British star went undercover at Mercedes HQ as he played a prank on a group of astonished school children.

Hamilton was hidden by a rubber mask, beard and glasses in the stunt as one kid revealed they ‘wanted to cry’ after he ditched the disguise.

The British superstar also opened up to WSJ Magazine about the pain he felt after being racially abused during the 2008 Spanish GP.

Early in his career, a group of fans showed up to the Barcelona race in blackface while wearing shirts that read ‘Hamilton’s Family.’

Hamilton recalled: “I remember the pain that I felt that day, but I didn’t say anything about it; I didn’t have anyone.

“No one said anything. “I saw people continuing in my industry and staying quiet.”
