Racing royals

Marco Andretti is apparently preparing for the start of the Verizon IndyCar Series season with Andretti Autosport by getting a few tips from three-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton has shown up in Andretti’s social media feeds before and, a few days ago, they were hanging out in Miami. They are both bulldog dads, so maybe they’re bonding over that, too.

Training with the champ @LewisHamilton ! Safe travels bro. ✌🏽 #MiamiBeach.

Bed head

Even before the INDYCAR season gets rolling, new Team Penske driver Josef Newgarden has discovered the secrets to teammate Helio Castroneves’ perfect hair. Newgarden shared them on Twitter. 

This is the top secret @h3lio hair product.

Castroneves remained unfazed.

It's all about details!😉

Separated at birth

Speaking of looks, the Indianapolis Colts have a new general manager, Chris Ballard, and some think he looks a lot like AJ Foyt Racing driver Conor Daly in a suit.

Guys can I confirm that I in fact am not the new @Colts #GM okay? Lol #fortheshoe

Tony Kanaan’s garage

Racing fans are getting a rare peek at some of Chip Ganassi Racing driver Tony Kanaan’s prized possessions this week on Buckle up!

Fan favorite @TonyKanaan takes us inside his "garage/man cave" in South Florida that's home to his favorite personal vehicles & memorabilia.

Family photos

Also this week, Carlos Munoz – the second AJ Foyt Racing driver – found and posted a picture worth a thousand words.

Look what I found going through my pictures! @jpmontoya #indycar #indy500 #colombia #tb Lo que me encontré pasando fotos en el celu!

Hinchtown’s Florida 48

After the Rolex 24 At Daytona last weekend, an exhausted James Hinchcliffe of Schmidt Peterson Motorsports was stuck in Orlando waiting for a delayed flight to take him home. Nevertheless, the “Mayor of Hinchtown” entertained us with tweets while he entertained himself.

Alright, let's take bets. Who thinks we make it out of here tonight?!

The Daytona 24 just became the Florida 48 for @Hinchtown...
