Lewis Hamilton speeds around on a jet ski and tries out a flyboard

Lewis Hamilton was seen enjoying an array of water sports while out on Sir Philip Green’s yacht on Wednesday.

The F1 champion, 36, was seen speeding around the ocean in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France, on a jet ski during an outing with his former teammate Nico Rosberg, 35, and his family.

Showing off his need for speed, Lewis caught the waves in the water craft and also tried out a flyboard during his day off from the track.

Lewis showed off his hunky torso while wearing a black life jacket that he donned over his toned frame.

The sportsman completed his look by wearing black wetsuit leggings, and he pulled his brunet braids into a ponytail.

Lewis appeared to be in good spirits as he tried out the various water sports, before Nico took his daughter Alaϊa, five, and Naila, four, on a jet ski.

The German-Finnish racing driver opted for a casual ensemble for the outing as he wore a black shirt with matching swimming trunks.

Hamilton finished Monaco Grand Prix in seventh with Max Verstappen taking the championship lead from him after the Dutchman dominated from start to finish to win. 

Following the race, Hamilton rued Mercedes’ pit-stop strategy but vowed he and his team will do everything they can behind the scenes to bounce back. 

An early pit stop backfired for Hamilton and Mercedes, losing them track position on a street circuit where overtaking is incredibly difficult.

‘Three places it cost me,’ Hamilton told Sky Sports F1. ‘I don’t really have a reaction to it, I think we do all our talking in the background and we’ll work together and try to come out of this stronger.

‘We underperformed as a team all weekend, from the get go, so we’ll just put our focus on the next race. Congratulations to Max and his team, they did a great job.’

The next race takes place on June 6 in Azerbaijan around the Baku Street Circuit, a stop on the F1 calendar that missed out last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Lewis’ appearance also comes after he teased a potential clothing line as he donned a personalised tee with a picture of himself as a baby on and wrote: ‘Coming soon’ on Twitter.

The driver looked typically stylish as he was spotted wearing the purple printed T-shirt in Bahrain.  

And he made sure to shine a spotlight on the clothing item at the start of April as he revealed the adorable original photo to social media.  

The throwback image was transformed into an electric purple graphic on the star’s slim-fitted tee, with the word ‘Loyalty’ inked up above. 

After sharing the snaps on social media,  fans were quick to quiz Lewis on whether he’s launching a clothing line or possibly having children
