Lewis Hamilton’s F1 Trainer Angela Cullen Pictured Taking His Dog Roscoe Out for Walk at Red Bull Ring
Lewis Hamilton is one of the most popular figures in Formula One today. Although he has a dominant presence on every racetrack, his personal life off-track is quite attractive to many fans. One aspect of his personal life is his British bulldog Roscoe.
The Briton introduced Roscoe to the Hamilton family in 2013, and has had him ever since. From getting a passport several years back, Roscoe is now a common feature on Hamilton’s travels throughout the F1 season. At the ongoing Styrian Grand Prix, F1 photographer Kym Illman spotted Hamilton’s close companion on track.
Roscoe takes a tour of the Red Bull Ring
Various F1 drivers do a traditional walk around the track ahead of any Grand Prix weekend. This helps them prepare for getting their cars out on track during the weekend, while noting any changes made over the years.
This time however, Hamilton‘s dog Roscoe took to the Red Bull Ring ahead of free practice on Friday. In this photograph taken by Illman, the British bulldog is seen at the side of the track with Hamilton’s personal trainer, Angela Cullen.
Roscoe is quite a popular pet on social media. In fact, the British bulldog has his social media account which has over 300k followers on Instagram, while he occasionally does modelling gigs. In addition, Hamilton has Roscoe on a vegan diet just like himself, which he believes helped his health. Hence, it’s no surprise that this image is creating quite the wave on social media this weekend.
Can Lewis Hamilton take the fight to Max Verstappen at the Styrian Grand Prix today?
Hamilton qualified for today’s race in P3. However, the Briton will start the Styrian Grand Prix on the front row in P2 due to Valtteri Bottas‘ three-place grid penalty.

Although the defending world champion admitted Mercedes are far from Red Bull‘s pace, he will hope his experience can help him edge out Verstappen to close the gap in the driver’s championship.
Can Hamilton upset the odds in Red Bull’s home race later today? Only time will tell.
