Tom Cruise and Vin Diesel have been hanging out together at the Formula 1 race in Miami.

The two action heroes, as well as Diesel's Fast and Furious co-star Ludacris posed for a picture together before Sunday's grand prix.

Diesel later uploaded a picture of the three of them to his Instagram along with the caption "Maverick meets Toretto..." referencing their respective characters in Top Gun and Fast and Furious.

Ludacris, who was a rapper before joining the film franchise with 2 Fast 2 Furious, reposted the image and added "The Winners Circle."
