Juventus and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo paid a visit to Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton at the Monaco Grand Prix on Thursday.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who recently helped Juventus claim an eighth successive Scudetto in his debut season in Serie A, was given a tour of Hamilton’s Mercedes garage and the famous circuit’s pit lane ahead of Sunday’s race. There he met five-time world champion Hamilton, with the two of them embracing and posing for photographs inside the Silver Arrows garage.
Ronaldo is attending the event alongside his son Cristiano Jr. and close friend Jose Semedo. Cristiano Jr. was even given the rare thrill of sitting inside Hamilton’s famous Mercedes cockpit.
