Last evening was the football final between Italy and England as a part of the Euro 2020 final and Formula 1 drivers tuned into the action.

The last few weeks have been difficult for the drivers after a triple-header concluding with the Austrian Grand Prix.

This gave them a break from their routine to enjoy some great football action.

The teams also participated in the banter with some European Championship jokes through their social media.
