Fresh of the back of his 4th win of the year at the Russian Grand Prix Nico Rosberg took to social media to share the experience of his return flight to Monaco.
Sharing a rare glimpse into the life of an F1 driver away from the circuit Nico was joined on the flight by fellow Monaco residents Felipe Massa, Jenson Button, Max Verstappen, Esteban Gutiérrez, Nico Hulkenberg, Jean Eric Vergne, Alex Wurz, & David Coulthard.
In addition to a cost and environmentally conscious mindset, the film highlights a growing comradery amongst certain drivers on the grid. Whilst such relationships are unlikely to impact a drivers approach when they are racing against each other on track, but as the season progresses and individual prospects are diminished consciously or subconsciously drivers may make life that little bit easier for friends.
Perhaps in a bid to further bring F1 to the fans the GPDA should consider running competitions for a fan to join these flights…
