James Corden cut a cool figure on Thursday as he strutted alongside crop top-clad F1 drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris at the Miami Grand Prix previews.

And James certainly appeared to be letting his hair down after breaking the news as he posed for fun snaps and videos with Lando, 22, and Daniel, 32. 

The drivers were initially wearing the usual orange McLaren shirts, before James presented them with customised cropped versions adorned with colourful motifs and the words '#1 Driver' on the front.

British Lando and Italian-Australian Daniel took their new look in their stride as they showed off their toned abs in the new tops.
