The caption stated that he was bringing families across MBS on the sampan rides, although this remains unconfirmed.

Fans joke he is on side quest

Needless to say, fans were decidedly amused by the sight of Yuki on a sampan at MBS.

Others called the ride the “Yuki Tsunoda Experience”, something we’d definitely sign up for without a second’s hesitation.

And of course, there were those who said Yuki was simply scouting locations for his restaurant.

For the uninformed, he had previously said it was his dream to own a restaurant — over winning a world championship in F1, even.

Regardless, it certainly is heartening to see Yuki enjoy the activities MBS has on offer.

Here’s to wishing him all the best for this weekend, the sampan having hopefully prepared him enough for it.
