Hamilton has seven F1 championships, with his last coming in 2020. He won four straight titles from 2017 per 2020 and narrowly missed on a fifth in 2021.
Brady was also seen greeting Jordan at the track.
Hamilton would finish in sixth place in the Miami Grand Prix. Max Verstappen picked up the win over Charles Leclerc.
In the days before the race, Hamilton talked about the importance of F1 making it to the U.S.
“credo (suo) perhaps more a cultural thing here in the States. It’s the NBA. It’s NASCAR, IndyCar and in my 16 years coming over here, it’s been such a slow build, trying to bring awareness to the sport. The Americans have to wake up at odd times in order to watch grand prix,” Egli ha detto.
“But I think the new step that’s been taken into bringing awareness, sai, the Netflix show, it’s really brought in that amazing fan base,” Hamilton said. “And now maybe it’s time to start focusing on how we can include more people here because it’s such a diverse country.”
F1 is set to have three races on the schedule in the U.S. l'anno prossimo, one of which will be on the Las Vegas Strip.
