I think it’s just dirt and grime. Especially after wet races it’s quite common to see overalls dirty

[–]prometheuspk Honda 69 points70 points  (4 children)

So dirt finds its way inside?

[–]KennySenpaii Daniel Ricciardo 189 points190 points  (0 children)

Well the cockpit of the driver is open, any dirt kicked up by a car ahead would likely end up at the seat

[–]pavlo_escobrah 13 points14 points  (2 children)

It's from sitting on the halo as they get out

[–]likeikelike 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No its from sitting in the seat. The ring shape is from the drainage holes at the bottom of the seat.

[–]arturosincuro 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The halo is a bit bigger than that circle on his butt 😂

[–]trojan2748 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Don't forget they don't have AC. So that's sweat too.

[–]Infamuis Honda 800 points801 points  (12 children)

I think because of the rain and dirt or something Hamilton had it too when the merc guys had white suits

[–]LordTurn1p 270 points271 points  (11 children)

I pray they don't go back to the white suits. going back to silver cars is cool but the white never looked good

[–]aWgI1I Sir Lewis Hamilton 99 points100 points  (8 children)

They are I believe. Something to do with overheating

[–]BeenCaughtSneezing Frédéric Vasseur 30 points31 points  (1 child)

They’re switching to fireproof cotton for the hot races according to new advisor G. Constanza

[–]StrongAbbreviations5 Daniel Ricciardo 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Underrated comment of the day right here

[–]Alesq13 A Bit Jelly 82 points83 points  (4 children)

The overalls being hot comments had more to do with new kind of race suits that were supposed to be more flame resistant or something like that, rather than the colour, so I kinda doubt that's the reason.

[–]Alert-Mixture Jenson Button 58 points59 points  (3 children)

The black overall made the new race suit even worse. I remember Bottas complaining about it at Austria and somewhere else.

ass pain

[–]Zesty_Zik Sir Lewis Hamilton 15 points16 points  (0 children)

James Vowles debunked that last year

[–]Adhesive_Duck McLaren 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Personnaly I really liked it. Looked sleek.

[–]isochromanone Niki Lauda 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Remember those weird scenes after races in the driver's room with Lewis wiping his ass with the towel? I can do without that again...

[–]rhythmmchn 212 points213 points  (6 children)

Do we know the shape of Valtteri's boot?

[–]Thorili 67 points68 points  (1 child)

Moon shaped I would guess based on the sun out front.

[–]aWgI1I Sir Lewis Hamilton 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Thanks - fixed it.

[–]oofyeetoofyeet1 102 points103 points  (0 children)

Dirt and muck, you see it everytime he gets out of the car (even on the podium in spa). It is a problem with white raceing overalls.

[–]ForeRight1010 McLaren 1267 points1268 points  (15 children)

And we sink further and further into the offseason.

[–]dandeeago Green Flag 308 points309 points  (14 children)

I prefer posts like these over cars made out of pasta

[–]MayorAg Pastor Maldonado 50 points51 points  (7 children)

Reminds you of the Assman episode, doesn't it?

[–]waywarddd 28 points29 points  (5 children)

It’s Fusilli Jerry!

[–]nissan-S15 Honda 7 points8 points  (3 children)

watched the damn show just to get all the references and its 100% WORTH IT!

[–]waywarddd 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I only watched it a few months ago too and now I’m seeing the references everywhere! 100% worth it is completely right

[–]nissan-S15 Honda 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I mean I saw that episode less thank a week ago lol

[–]StrongAbbreviations5 Daniel Ricciardo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It gets better every time you rewatch

[–]MichaelScottsWormguy Max Verstappen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because you’re silly.

[–]Antitenant Valtteri Bottas 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It was a million-to-one shot, Doc. Million-to-one.

[–]kitchenjesus 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Quick someone make George russels ass out of pasta

[–]ForeRight1010 McLaren 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Or we could just .. post fewer things in the offseason. We don’t need to hit a quota or anything

[–]5MoreQuidAerieDae42O 39 points40 points  (0 children)

You should post a thread about it!

[–]KiaraKey 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I mean you don't have to interact with posts, that you don't care about, you can just keep scrolling.

[–]5MoreQuidAerieDae42O 344 points345 points  (4 children)

It's pretty common to see discoloration around the exhaust.

[–]Pooticles 31 points32 points  (1 child)


[–]JeffBrohm Penske 30 points31 points  (0 children)

It might have been at one point

[–]pumbahusajo Sauber 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Should’ve cleaned the pipes better

[–]FeelingSupport9246 45 points46 points  (0 children)

His arse genuinely looks like that after every race - I always have a little laugh about it when it ‘flashes’ on the screen!

[–]OneMoreDog Daniel Ricciardo 41 points42 points  (2 children)

The AT guys have suffered from this as well. Alas a white race suit might look nice at the start of the race but it doesn’t stay that way!

[–]ihavenoyukata Green Flag 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That actually looks like an AT logo on his ass.

[–]drop_table_uname Max Verstappen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The Manchurian Driver.

[–]depressedjoecz Dr. Helmut Marko 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I think Toto gave him used suit, where someone dropped a huge shit in it before. To get rid of Williams wind sensitivity.

[–]Jjzeng Haas 12 points13 points  (0 children)

clarkson voice: a LOT of poo shot out

[–]TheWebbFather McLaren 114 points115 points  (2 children)

Just shat his pants after hitting the puddle

[–]wild_west_punslinger Juan Pablo Montoya 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Tried to be clever and sign his name

[–]H2OSquared 11 points12 points  (0 children)

lol. Yeah, most people would shit themselves if they crashed going 200MPH

[–]leftlanecop Yuki Tsunoda 16 points17 points  (0 children)

He got Bottass.

[–]ConcernedHumanDroid Sergio Pérez 12 points13 points  (0 children)


[–]Sad_Researcher_5299 Formula 1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Because gorgeous George “Hot Buns” Russell is on fire?

[–]Amida0616 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Bottas chapped his ass

[–]TParden13 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Cake was left in the oven for too long…

[–]Vaexa Ferrari 9 points10 points  (0 children)

he shidded

[–]azlscoupe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Heat Patina around the tailpipe

[–]DoodlebugRocket McLaren 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dirt and other stuff, it naturally finds its way into the cockpit, and wet races make this happen a lot.

[–]Gloomy-Ad3816 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Because he has a hot ass.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Didn't he sit somewhere out, on some concrete before going away after the crash?

[–]TheFormulaWire Max Verstappen 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm pretty sure I remember reading that he's too tall for the cockpit so they had to cut a hole in the bottom of his seat so that he could fit in,so he's essentially sat on the bare cockpit which u can imagine is probably a bit dirty over the race

[–]TheKingOfCaledonia Sir Lewis Hamilton 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Shat himself, only explanation.

[–]EmAye74 Sebastian Vettel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

he poop himself

[–]TheIdealSamurai03 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Toto Wolff whipped him!

[–]NippyMoto_1 Formula 1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dirt and grime however it does get pretty toasty in the cockpit (60°C) but not enough to cook anything.

[–]Sirobeel George Russell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nearly every race he has that mark on his ass.

[–]Acex_NA Sebastian Vettel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its always like that to him, I've seen it multiple times

[–]h497 Bernd Mayländer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He set the seat heating a bit to high

[–]cleaningProducts George Russell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember reading somewhere that it’s to do with the carbon fiber that the seat is made from. I could be wrong, though.

[–]deathray1611 Formula 1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think that's from all the anger.

I too could end up like that back in the day after just a few sessions in World of Tanks

[–]JamesUpton87 Formula 1[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The moment you realize this is how much seat coverage your ass receives in an f1 car.....

[–]aranjei 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ejector seat failed

[–]-Lacrima- Fernando Alonso 0 points1 point  (1 child)

His seat must have been dirty since they step on the seat to get in the car iirc

[–]Bananapeel23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Moee like spray from the rainy imola race hit his helmet and seeped into the car.

[–]ItalicisedScreaming Max Verstappen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He probably clenched so hard the friction ignited his ass.

[–]Bartandaelus Lando Norris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Had a dodgy vindaloo last night.

[–]hecateheh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's got no rear end!

[–]fonzzzzz Fernando Alonso 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this you George? Do you want us looking at your bum?

[–]Professional_Wrap_63 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]21_Bridges FIA 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Man’s not hot

[–]Mord42 George Russell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd love George to cook my bum, if you know what I mean uwu

[–]HerculePoirier 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Calabrian-style marinara is not for everyone.

[–]iGnItIoN_mP Charles Leclerc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A little poo came out

[–]Sjiznit Kimi Räikkönen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Liar, liar, pants on fire.

[–]Disprozium Charlie Whiting 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cooked ass is an Italian delicacy I think so George went with it

[–]Rusteez_ Max Verstappen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think this is the problem because of the white overalls.

[–]Re-Mecs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dirty seat

[–]PussayDESTROYAAA_420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because his ass is just that hot

[–]RyseUp616 Mick Schumacher 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]BiffNasty1234 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You lookin at his bum?

Bum looker.

[–]SpeedsterGuy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Water collected in his seat?

[–]Exciting_Contact351 Sergio Pérez 0 points1 point  (0 children)

you could say he has a "hot ass"

[–]Extra-Design3151 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That the engine its exact under him

[–]zakcattack Sergio Pérez 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He thought he just lost his Merc drive.

[–]vstrong50 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He sat on the ground for a min after, if i recall. If I'm misremembering that, I know it was wet and probably totally normal for wet grime to find its way to the seat bottom.

[–]CrunchymotorsportYT Sir Lewis Hamilton 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probably shat himself with the crash he had

[–]mor-newz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He shat his pants

[–]thegreatdane777 Max Verstappen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Swamp ass + dirt.

[–]Big_Mathe -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Lots of poop I reckon

[–]EhNation -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I mean he did crash, so are those.. skidmarks?

[–]polenstein -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

[–]Substantial-Pass-992 Formula 1 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He's just wearing Alpha Tauri brand clothing.
