Gusually when it ends a Formula 1 Grand Prix the pilots, especially those who finish on the podium, continue to be the main protagonists. But of course, in the grand prizes of the calendar they do not usually have as a guest Shaquille O’Neal.

Despite the fact that the former Magic, Lakers or Heat has been retired for a decade, he is still one of the characters that most attracts the spotlight, be where you are and whatever you do. Partly because he’s still part of the business as an analyst at TNT, but most of all, for his eccentric personality, which is unique, and by its ability to absorb attention, which is also unique.

At the Circuit of the Americas, in Austin, where Max verstappen took the triumph over Lewis hamilton, the protagonist was Shaq. Because among all the celebrities that were there, he was the one chosen to present the trophy to the winner and of course, he delivered it Shaq style.

The former player arrived in a limousine, known as a ‘longhorn’, in which he carried the trophy that he was going to give to the winner. Waving like the star that is I ended up on the podium in an image that has gone around the world and that has been cause for laughter, in fact, already on the circuit it amuses the audience. Shaq, standing, was taller than Hamilton or ‘Czech’ Prez in their respective ‘drawers’ and almost as much as the world leader, Verstappen.

It’s been a long time since Shaq He stopped smashing NBA hoops but has maintained a social life that keeps him in the limelight to the point of being chosen to close an event that hosted more than 400,000 fans in Austin.
