Elite Boss Tech has been selling cheats in Destiny 2 for some time now. The group unsurprisingly attracted the attention of its developer, Bungie. The result was naturally a huge lawsuit.

Hamilton is currently in Montreal for the Canadian Grand Prix and the first thing that he did after getting off the plane was head on over to a store selling retro game consoles. “I landed in Montreal and went straight to a retro game shop,” the Formula 1 driver said on Instagram. “Got myself a Sega Genesis and of course, Ayrton Senna’s Super Monaco GP 2.
