The 2021 Italian Grand Prix drew a lot of attention from celebrities around the world, including well-known American actor, Vin Diesel. While the ‘Fast and Furious’ star mostly remained with Mercedes, their rivals, Scuderia Ferrari, too, had a special guest visiting their garage.

Senegalese content creator, Khaby Lame, who gained immense worldwide popularity in recent years, finally managed to witness his first-ever F1 race from the pit lane. He has remained in the limelight for over a year now.

He is certainly a unique content creator who hardly uses his voice rather gives his highest priority to actions; Khaby’s ideology is to simplify the unreasonably complicated tasks with a sarcastic tone.

And of course, the 21-year-old has given the world something to laugh at amidst a gloomy couple of years. Well, he managed to bring his hilarious play into the Ferrari garage as well. Also, who better to share the screen with Khaby than the newly recruited Ferrari driver, Carlos Sainz!

Throughout the play, Sainz was visibly enjoying Khaby’s presence, and so were the crew around the two main men.

What were Khaby and Sainz up to at Ferrari?

Following the Italian GP, Sainz and Khaby produced a rather humourous clip on social media. The clip opened with the Spaniard struggling to get into the car amidst the interference of the halo. And in the came the star, Khaby, yet again to simplify Sainz’s struggles.

Khaby brought a wooden step with him and placed it near the side pod. And that stepped gave him the much-needed height to get into the cockpit. Of course, then followed his classic hand gesture.

The Senegalese even uploaded the video on Instagram, with an amusing caption for Sainz. “It was an honor to help you my friend Carlos Sainz. But, next time, learn how to get into [the car]. #learnfromkhaby,” he wrote.

Sainz, too, replied to Khaby’s post. “This dude [ha ha]. Thanks for the help,” Sainz said.

Overall, Ferrari did manage to provide Khaby with a strong on-track result to celebrate; Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz garnered a total of 20 points out of the weekend at Monza, which has crucially helped them keep their constructors’ fight for P3 alive.
