Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg both had an opportunity for a unique perspective on F1 ahead of this week's Bahrain test, as they met Pope Francis and the Dalai Lama respectively.

Though all attention is now on the Bahrain test, on Monday Hamilton tweeted his admiration for the Pope's bullet-proof Mercedes, while also stating he had met His Holiness at the Vatican.

Not to be outdone by his team-mate, on the morning of the first day of testing Rosberg tweeted a picture of the Dalai Lama, after a meeting at Frankfurt Airport.

In a follow-up tweet, Rosberg also added: "...I finally know what to answer when journos ask me which influential person i would like to have dinner with!"
