Cudi labelled Hamilton’s car as “Lewis’ space craft” in photos he posted to Twitter. 

This is not the first time Mercedes has linked up with American stars for promotional reasons.

Lewis Hamilton has been an integral part in the making of Brad Pitt’s upcoming F1 movie ‘Apex.’

Hamilton is working as both a producer and adviser on this project. 

Meanwhile, Cudi’s enthusiasm for F1 was evident from his presence on the Spa-Francorchamps track following the main event race.

Cudi didn’t travel to Belgium specifically for last weekend’s Grand Prix though.

Instead, he was in Europe for the Tomorrowland festival, during which he teased a new song with Steve Aoki.

This track is expected to be featured on his next big project, which is called ‘Insano’.

Footage from this event showed ‘Cudders’ and Steve Aoki hyping the new album and debuting a collaboration called ‘Electrowave Baby 2.0.’
