Tying his bleached dreadlocks into a ponytail, the athlete soaked up the sun as he raced around on the Karl Lagerfeld limited edition board.  

Lewis later lost control and landed in the water as pals giggled and he exclaimed: ‘I lost the back end!’.

He captioned the post: ‘And we’re off!! Kicked off the summer break with a much needed day out on the water. @fabioquartararo20, always a pleasure. Some amazing weeks ahead for sure’.

At one point, he crouched into a corner and treated the shutterbugs to his best smouldering supermodel stare. 

Zendaya, 25, exuded movie star glamour in a string of outfits, including a mini dress with matching tights and boots reminiscent of the 1960s.

Formula One’s weary cast have retreated for their summer lie-down after 13 races on four continents in 20 frenetic weeks.

The championship starts up again with the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa on August 28.

Max Verstappen currently leads the rest of the drivers by 80 points in the race to the championship after winning his first world title last season. Lewis is trailing in sixth place with 146 points.

The champion driver is soon set to become a co-owner of three-time Super Bowl winners the Denver Broncos as part of the most expensive ever takeover of an American sports franchise.

The Formula One great is teaming up with Rob Walton, billionaire heir to the Walmart retail fortune, who is leading his family’s $4.65billion bid, which is subject to NFL approval next week.

The Waltons are America’s richest family, with Rob Walton alone worth $61.6bn, which puts him 19th on Forbes’ list of the world’s wealthiest individuals.

Walton said: ‘We’re delighted to welcome seven-time Formula One world champion Sir Lewis Hamilton to our ownership group. He is a champion competitor who knows what it takes to lead a winning team.’
