The world loses it in the picture of the GOATs Lewis Hamilton, Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, David Beckham
Formula 1 and sports fans lost their minds at the sight of several sporting GOATs mingling at the Miami Grand Prix on Monday (AEST).
It was the first-ever F1 race in Miami and a who’s-who of A-list celebrities showed up in force to enjoy the over-the-top spectacle of an F1 race on American soil.

And a photo of Lewis Hamilton, Michael Jordan, David Beckham and Tom Brady posing together outside the Mercedes garage had fans melting.
NFL superstar Brady and soccer legend Beckham shared photos of the awesome foursome on social media.
British media personality Piers Morgan tweeted a picture of sporting royalty but couldn’t resist a dig at Beckham – claiming the former Manchester United and Real Madrid great was out of place alongside the three GOATs.
Beckham appeared to be having a blast at the Grand Prix and was also seen rubbing shoulders with Max Verstappen and Red Bull boss Christian Horner.
Hamilton played golf with Brady before the race and likely quizzed the legendary quarterback on how he could win one more world title to break Michael Schumacher’s record.
The Briton also shared a photo on his Instagram Stories of his dad smiling with Jordan.
Jordan, who won six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls, immersed himself in the world of F1.
Earlier in the week, he met AlphaTauri pilot Pierre Gasly and even tried on his helmet, which clung tightly to the basketball GOAT’s head.
Countless celebrities have been seen soaking up the racing atmosphere in Miami.
Serena and Venus Williams were in attendance, as were music icons DJ Khaled and Pharrell Williams, and Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher.
It was a bit too much to handle for legendary F1 commentator Martin Brundle, who left the world trying to look away from a train wreck during his usual pre-Grand Prix grid walk.
The 63-year-old gave viewers ten minutes of torment as he walked along the grid talking to celebrity guests on the track.
There were a stack of awkward moments when he approached unsuspecting celebrities and put the microphone in their face.
Serena Williams brutally snubbed Brundle and in a cringe-worthy TV show mistook college basketball player Pablo Banchero for star NFL quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Verstappen won the race to reduce Charles Leclerc’s championship lead to 19 points, while Hamilton finished in sixth place.
