The world of Formula 1 is in Montreal this week and Lewis Hamilton took the opportunity to visit a local company.
The seven-time world champion stopped by Retro MTL, a company specializing in the sale and repair of retro video games.
Visibly nostalgic, he bought a Sega Genesis as well as a few games including Super Monaco GP II. Hamilton then posted some images of his new purchase on his Instagram account, which has been followed by over 28 million people.
An unexpected visit
To hello hello show at TVA, Gino Chouinard and the techno columnist of Car Guide Mathieu Roy spoke with Dominic Bourret, co-owner of Retro MTL. He shared some anecdotes related to Lewis Hamilton’s visit to his business in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve.
“I didn’t recognize anyone! “, he admits immediately, explaining that he does not follow Formula 1 and that Hamilton wore a mask and glasses. First looking for a Super Nintendo and the Mario Kart game, Lewis Hamilton was redirected to a Sega product, which he bought with a few games.
