Formula 1 fans baffled by Tom Cruise’s cameo

First Wimbledon, then Wembley, now Silverstone.

Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise has crashed the party of another iconic sporting event, spotted in the Mercedes garage at the British Grand Prix on Sunday.

Seven-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton invited Cruise to join the Mercedes team at Silverstone, where the British driver secured a 99th Grand Prix victory.

Cruise celebrated as emphatically as anyone in the Mercedes garage as Hamilton sped past race leader Charles Leclerc on Lap 50.

The 59-year-old actor, who has been filming the latest Mission Impossible instalment in England, chatted with Formula 1 chief executive Stefano Domenicali before lights out and embraced Hamilton after the victory.

In the past week, Cruise has been fortunate enough to witness the men’s and women’s singles finals at Wimbledon and the Euros final between England and Italy.

The legendary Harrison Ford was also in attendance at Silverstone, seen in the Williams garage on Sunday.

Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, tennis youngster Emma Raducanu, Prince Edward and actor Michael Douglas were also spotted among the 140,000 spectators.

I'm expecting Tom Cruise to turn up at my cricket club next week. Why not? He's been at every other sporting event in the UK in the last week.

Wouldn’t be surprised if I found Tom Cruise in my kitchen tonight, bloody everywhere that man

Cruise’s presence at Ash Barty’s Wimbledon triumph last week didn’t sit well with everyone.

Tennis fans turned their fury on the actor for hogging the spotlight – and broadcasters and the official Wimbledon social media accounts for pointing it at him.

Cruise appeared to be lapping up the attention as he stood and waved to the crowd and posed for photographs with fans.

Hamilton overcame a 10-second time penalty to take the race lead with less than three laps remaining to win a dramatic race at Silverstone, where he was eventually penalised two championship points for his involvement in a horror crash with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.

Replays showed Hamilton nudging championship leader Verstappen off the track and into the tyre wall at 289 km/h on the opening lap.

The Dutchman walked away unscathed, undergoing a medical examination at the track before being taken to a local hospital for further tests.

Meanwhile, Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo finished fifth for his best result of his first season with McLaren.
