The Gunners fan shared an image of the England international celebrating his strike against the Magpies at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

Taking to his Instagram story, Hamilton tagged Saka in the picture of him wheeling away in delight after rifling low into the bottom right corner.

And the seven-time F1 World Champion also posted other pictures on his story to his 25.4 million followers as his attention turns towards the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Hamilton currently trails Red Bull ace Max Verstappen by eight points in the standings, though the British icon has won the last two races.

Posting images of himself chilling and then one of him in the back of a car, Hamilton shared a mirror selfie after a training session.

Captioning the snap, he simply stated: “The work never stops!”


With Hamilton hot on the heels of Verstappen, he has declared he must be ‘wary’ to avoid a crash that would scupper his chances of winning a record eighth title.

He told the BBC: “You just have to be very, very wary – more wary than ever before.

“Rather than giving someone the benefit of the doubt, you have to know that’s what’s going to happen.

“So you always have to be ready to avoid a collision at all costs, [even] if it means going wide, because you want to see the end of the race, right?

“If you’re stubborn and you hold your ground, you’re going to crash. So that’s what I’ve just tried to do. I’ve tried to make sure I avoid the collision.

“And I think I’ve been pretty decent at it in most scenarios. You can’t always get it perfect.”

Hamilton and Verstappen have collided twice in 2021, with the former penalised for the first one at the British GP.

Meanwhile Verstappen was at fault when they crashed again at the Italian GP.
