NFL superstar JJ Watt and Haas F1 team principal Guenther Steiner, the unlikeliest of bromances
(CNN) A hulking six-foot-four NFL colossus and an Italian team principal of a Formula One team are not the likeliest of best buddies.
But JJ Watt and Guenther Steiner are breaking that mold.
Three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year Watt fell in love with Formula One through Netflix's hit immersive documentary, "Drive to Survive," and his favorite character was none other than Haas team principal Steiner.
In March this year, after Haas drivers Kevin Magnussen and Mick Schumacher finished fifth and 11th respectively at the Bahrain Grand Prix, Watt tweeted: "Somebody get Guenther Steiner in front of a camera and inject it into my veins.
During their time in the pits, the Watt brothers spent time with the engineers, trying their hand at the speedy pitstops which wow fans.
Steiner, on the other hand, saw some healthy competition between the two NFL star brothers.
After the captivating weekend Watt had, he once again tweeted his praise of Steiner.
"Whatever team Guenther Steiner is principal of, I'm a fan," he wrote.
"Massive thank you to Guenther, KMag, Mick, Stu & everyone in the Haas garage for the hospitality and letting us test our pit stop skills.
Watt has become enamored with his charismatic nature, going as far as calling him a "pretty massive celebrity around here."
During his time at the Miami GP -- the debut race at the new Florida circuit -- Watt was shown the inner workings of the Haas F1 team.
