Former Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas has gifted seven-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton a nude photos of himself.

Seven-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton has been gifted a nude photo of ex-teammate Valtteri Bottas.

The 32-year-old driver raised over AU$88,000 for charity within the first 24 hours of the cheeky snap being on sale, The Sun reports.

Bottas’ partner Tiffany Cromwell, took a naked shot of the driver posing in a Colorado stream as they remained in America for a holiday after the Miami GP.

And the Finn posted a video on Instagram of him handing a framed and signed copy to Hamilton ahead of this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix.

“Saved the last print for my buddy Lewis,” he captioned the post.

During last weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix, Hamilton promised he would buy one for charity.

“It’s one of the best photos I’ve seen actually,” he said.

Bottas – now racing with Alfa Romeo – laughed that Hamilton could hang it up in his apartment.

It was all jokes for the old Mercedes pair before they go head-to-head this weekend in Monaco.

Meanwhile, Hamilton could be banned from racing in the Monaco Grand Prix if he does not remove all of his piercings, warned F1 pundit Ted Kravitz.

FIA rules forbid drivers wearing jewellery during races and Hamilton acquiesced by removing his earrings to race in Miami.

But removing his nose stud proved more problematic with the Brit possibly requiring minor surgery to get rid of the piercing.

Hamilton was granted a two-race exemption from the rules to give him time to remove the nose stud – but now the seven-time world champion wants to keep it.

Sky Sports’ Kravitz believes there is a “storm brewing” between Hamilton and the FIA which could see the driver banned from the Monaco GP.
