Patrick Mahomes stops by Alpine at F1 Miami Grand Prix

MIAMI — The work of a Super Bowl winning quarterback is never done.

Just a few months after helping the Kansas City Chiefs to their second-straight Super Bowl title, Patrick Mahomes was back in an NFL stadium on Saturday. Only this time not with a helmet on nor to walk into the huddle as a starting quarterback, but rather to visit with other athletes as a team owner.

On a steamy Saturday here in Miami Mahomes returned to Hard Rock Stadium, the site of his first Super Bowl win, to visit with Formula 1 team Alpine. Back in October of 2023, Mahomes was part of a group of athletes — along with teammate Travis Kelce — who joined the ownership group of the F1 team.

“I’ve always had a passion for all sports. The opportunity to lead an investor group with Travis in Alpine F1 alongside Otro Capital was one I couldn’t pass up,” said Mahomes last October. “It’s an exciting time for the sport and this is an opportunity to bring our shared values to the world stage. I’m looking forward to being a part of its growth.”

On Saturday the MVP quarterback was spotted by SB Nation walking into the Alpine hospitality space, alongside his wife Brittany.

The team then shared a few photographs on social media:

Shortly after Mahomes arrived, Alpine notched a victory as F1 Academy driver Abbi Pulling secured a win in the first of two F1 Academy races this weekend. It is Pulling’s second win of the season, but the first time the driver got to enjoy the victory on the podium. In her first win, she was promoted to P1 after the race — and after the podium celebration — following a post-race penalty handed down to Mercedes driver Doriane Pin.

Alpine also shared a quick video of the arrival:

Later in the day Saturday SB Nation saw the quarterback and his wife exit the Alpine hospitality space and make their way out of Hard Rock Stadium. As they departed it appeared the quarterback was pointing to the portion of the Dolphins’ Ring of Honor commemorating the 1972 Miami Dolphins team that finished a perfect 17-0.

Or perhaps he was pointing out a friend in the stands, it was hard to tell from the angle.

Alpine is now hoping that Mahomes can bring a little Hard Rock Stadium magic later today when Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly take to the grid for qualifying for tomorrow’s Miami Grand Prix.
