Formula One drivers, past and present, were quick to wish their fans a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays over the weekend.

While most current racers already had a drive secured for 2017, some were hoping for Santa Claus to bring good news, with Nico Rosberg’s Mercedes seat featuring at the top of the gift list.

Take a look at pictures of them celebrating with friends and family, starting with the recently-retired 2016 world champion.
