The 15 funniest tweets from an action-packed U.S. Grand Prix


3y ago

It began with the most bizarre pre-race ceremony in F1 history, developed into an enjoyable contest on-track, and ended with a controversial stewarding decision.

The United States Grand Prix had plenty to offer, whether it was a boxing announcer attempting to pronounce "Stoffel Vandoorne", or Max Verstappen using all of the track (and a little more) to pass Kimi Raikkonen.

Lewis Hamilton was in control out front, securing Mercedes the constructors' championship while he now has one hand on the drivers' title.

That's how it went down at the Circuit of the Americas, here's how our man on social media saw it on Twitter.

1) This being America, race day started with some FAKE NEWS!

2) Liberty Media went a bit MAD with the driver presentations. It was TRULY AWFUL.

3) This is pretty much how the driver announcements were...

4) As the intro man would say: NICOOO HOOOLKENBURG IS OUT!

5) These days, it's such a big deal when a McLaren overtakes another car that Honda have pre-prepared graphics.

6) After a really punchy start to the race, Daniel Ricciardo is KO'd.

7) Only for the 11th time this season. Bring on 2018!

8) Matt Bishop, late of McLaren, knows what Fernando can do to the hospitality wall when not happy...

9) Lap 33 of 56 and, once again, the Force India boys are told to hold station. Really?

10) DO NOT give Liberty any more ideas.

11) Mercedes have SO much time to kill during races they can find THE best GIFs.

12) How dare other drivers get near to *me* in a race? Lewis may be getting a bit used to having it too easy.

13) Spotted by an eagle-eyed viewer on lap 50...

14) Max Verstappen was SO close to the podium. Give him points for entertainment value.

15) Alex Wurz echoes the thoughts of a million TV viewers.

16) Awkward doesn't come into it as Verstappen gets taken out of the cool-down room to be replaced by Kimi. Credit to Max for taking it without fuss.

    • I thought it was beyond dreadful. Naff, cheesey and cringe inducing. A personal low point was when he kept saying 'Marquee' instead of 'Marque' but I guess I'm a traditionalist!

    • It reminded me of the announcer in The Running Man
