PSG star Neymar Jr made his appearance at the Monaco GP 2023 but all he got was a cold shoulder from his friend and F1 driver Lewis Hamilton. Thereafter, Hamilton posted an apology on his Instagram stories to which Neymar cheekily replied, “F*** u,” on his own Instagram story. Days after this interaction, Hamilton decided to make amends with the PSG striker by inviting him inside the Mercedes garage in an exclusive tour.
Hamilton posted the photo with his friend and Brazilian footballer Neymar Jr on his Instagram account and captioned it as, “quick sit fit.” along with a laughing emoji.
The Brazilian star got the chance to inspect the USD 14,000,000 Mercedes W14 from up and close with Lewis Hamilton alongside him. In the video shared, the seven-time champion can be seen joking as he said, “It doesn’t fit?” to which Neymar replied,” Yeah it is the hips.”
Neymar also met other F1 drivers i the paddock. The footballer took pictures with Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc, Mercedes’ George Russell, and Alfa Romeo’s Zhou Guanyu. The Brazilian skipped his team’s title celebrations to attend the Monaco Grand Prix where he also met with a host of Hollywood stars including Tom Holland and Michael Douglas. He was joined by his PSG teammates Marco Verratti and Gianluigi Donnarumma by the track to watch the action. Neymar’s future at PSG still remains in doubt and it will be intriguing where he ends up after the summer transfer window.
