Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has expressed his desire to host a ‘good night out’ with his fellow drivers after the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.

Due to the pandemic, teams and their drivers have been living in their respective bubbles with almost no interaction with each other.

Even though many areas are witnessing relaxation of the rules, the teams are cautious with widespread testing still taking place.

Just like many others, Hamilton has cut down on his social life and has been spending most of his time either by himself or with his inner circle of family and friends.

The Brit, however, would love to enjoy a night out with fellow drivers to have a good time.

“I think at some stage when things get back to normal, I’m sure there’ll be a moment where we meet somewhere,” said the Mercedes driver on Thursday.

“There’ll be something fun that we end up doing. I definitely think it’s good for the drivers to get together and put away the competition and just have a good night out together. At some stage, we’ll probably all do that.”

Hamilton asked about Max

During the press conference, Lewis was sitting next to his Red Bull rival Max Verstappen. The Brit was asked if he ever met Verstappen while he was home in Monaco.

“Well, me personally, I’m never really out and about,” Hamilton told reporters.

“We live on the opposite sides of town so therefore we don’t really see each other,” he said, sheepishly.

“We’ve messaged each other on DM before, right? We’ve messaged after races but I guess we’ve never really had a lot of time to spend together.”

What did Verstappen say?

Max revealed that he spends most of his time with his family and friends.

“It’s difficult to wave at each other. Monaco is like a rock,” Max joked.

“We are away so much that once you get home, you also want to spend time with family and friends.

“With so many races, that is priority number one, because they also would love to spend time with you. And when the opportunity arises, it’s very easy to meet up nowadays with social media and stuff,” he concluded.
