In fact, Brady showed up at the 2018 Monaco Grand Prix and even spent the evening throwing passes to race winner Daniel Ricciardo. While Brady took a seat on a massive cruise, Ricciardo was across the harbor on a Red Bull Yacht.

The NFL star then made a play at the Aussie from quite a long distance and at an incredible pace. It almost looked like Ricciardo was going to mess up the game and end up missing the ball. However, Ricciardo was good enough to catch the ball, as he raised his arms in the air to celebrate the ‘touchdown’.
