One of the most interesting moments from the party is the Big Man showing his support to the 7x F1 champion. The clip shows famed F1 driver and commentator Martin Brundle. Their short interaction attracted hilarious comments from fans and followers.

However, what made it the highlight of the show was Big Aristotle’s comment. As soon as Brundle approached the legend, he said, “Lewis Hamilton baby,” as he walked off in a different direction. Before Hamilton could ask him about more, O’Neal had already walked away.

While some had hilarious reactions to his gesture, others demanded that he should have shown some more respect to the former F1 star. However, some eagle-eyed fans and followers were also quick to notice O’Neal clicking pictures with Hamilton’s rivals Red Bulls, moments before his claim. O’Neal’s little support might have boosted his confidence. Hamilton couldn’t advance beyond Q2 in Qualifying. With Mercedes trailing behind rival Red Bulls, the 38-year-old holds little optimism.

The party was as vibrant as the 4x champion’s personality. To add more charm, his son Myles O’Neal took the stage for his performance.

With Myles displaying his DJ skills, it was a significant day for the O’Neal family as well. In one clip shared online, as he gathered together with other celebrities to click a picture, he was seen yelling, “Got all my mafias here.”
