CIRCUIT DE BARCELONA-CATALUNYA, SPAIN - MAY 12: Paris St Germain and Brazil International

You can't be watching social media all the time, so let us help you catch up on some moments that may have escaped your attention over the Barcelona weekend...

Fast fashion

As always, world champion Lewis Hamilton found time for a few extra-curricular activities before heading to Spain...

The perfect set-up

Barcelona is where we see the team's motorhomes for the first time in the season. This year saw the Honda-powered Red Bull and Toro Rosso teams debut their - rather impressive - new home...

Torpedo tutorial

Who do you expect to be standing at the front of your class when you turn up for a uni lecture? Probably not a Formula 1 driver...

Take aim...

...and once again his aim was true - Carlos Sainz scored points in his home race, maintaining his perfect top 10 record in Barcelona. But he was getting his eye in ahead of the weekend too...

Picture perfect?

We'll let you decide whose is the better likeness...

Fancy footwork

We know how well Kevin Magnussen's feet dance atop the pedals of an F1 car - and it looks like those talents pay off elsewhere too...

Team rivalry

Magnussen isn't the only Haas driver with finely-tuned ball skills - could a circus career beckon for Romain Grosjean, post-F1?

Federer's big fan

In case you don't speak Spanish, Sergio Perez's two main observations when meeting tennis ace Roger Federer were: he's very big - and very down-to-earth!

Ferrari power boost

How do you get from A to B more quickly in a wheelchair? Add a four-time Formula 1 world champion to your team...

Two-wheeled hero

Spanish motorsport fans turned out in their thousands for Carlos Sainz, but they would no doubt have been thrilled to see this compatriot in attendance too...

Formula fit

It's a Formula 1 pit-stop routine, but not as you know it...

He's got the look

There was some Swedish rock royalty in the Alfa pit. Sadly, though, the weekend didn't provide much of a 'Joyride' for the team, who failed to score in Spain.

Football crazy

Spain was the place to be for famous footballers, among them the big Brazilian names of Neymar Jr and Arthur Melo, and French star Adrien Rabiot.

Finishing 'tache!

The one man in Formula 1 with a more famous moustache than Chase Carey's? It's outgoing Mercedes CEO, Dieter Zetsche, of course...
