Felipe Massa retired from Formula One at the end of the 2017 season and Lewis Hamilton was not about to let him forget it.
In the F1 Drivers’ Secret Santa the world champion did his best to make the 36-year-old feel old, buying him slippers, a pipe and a pensioners manual.
And surprisingly the Brazilian took it well and admitted they would come in handy following his retirement from the sport.
“I have a nice pair of shoes for a very old man,” Massa said.
“I will check what I have to do when I stop in Formula One.
“I am totally ready for my retirement. Thank you Lewis and I will use these now I have a lot more time at home.”
But not every present was well received as Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas was far from impressed with the can of fish he got from Max Verstappen.
“It smells like cat food,” the Mercedes driver said.
“I used to have a cat but now my parents have it — so maybe it’s for the cat?
“It must be some smart a**. Max? How does he know I have a cat?”
And Toro Rosso man Pierre Gasly was left perplexed by the Viking hat he received from Marcus Ericsson.
“Why would he give me horns?’ he asked.
“I need to talk to him. It’s pretty nice, I’ll take that.”
