South Africa - Mercedes Formula 1 driver Valtteri Bottas visited South Africa recently, after posting a picture on his personal Instagram account of what appears to be the landscape of a Cape Town vineyard.

It has been a quite off-season for the Finn with the picture taken in SA being one of the few indications of what Bottas has been getting up to after the 2017 F1 season.

That has not been the case for team mate Lewis Hamilton following his controversial 'boys don't wear princess dresses' remarks aimed at his nephew in December last year.

Hamilton later apologized for posting a video online in which he can be heard yelling at his young nephew for wearing a princess dress.

Hamilton deleted the video and issued a series of tweets apologising on Tuesday after he was criticized for questioning the boy's gender expression.

The Briton's Instagram account has since been emptied.
