The 17 funniest tweets from the Chinese Grand Prix

2y ago


Lewis Hamilton hit back for Mercedes in China, taking victory ahead of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel to make it all square at the top of the drivers' championship.

Max Verstappen stormed through from 16th on the grid to take third - meaning we had three different constructors on the podium in Shanghai.

That's how it played out on the track, but we asked @GrandPrixDiary to keep an eye on Twitter for us during the Grand Prix - here's how it all panned out on social media...

1 - Felipe Massa, the nicest guy in F1?

Felipe Massa: Nicest guy in F1?

2 - A sell out?

The HUGE grandstand at the start of the back straight had one spectator in it. ONE.

3 - Max Verstappen

From 16th to 2nd by lap 11. Who said you can't overtake in these cars?

4 - Who?

Lewis Hamilton surprised to hear Jean-Eric Vergne is behind him, especially as he left F1 at the end of 2014.

5 - Sometimes you need to stop tweeting and just watch. Epic stuff!

6 - Commentator's curse

The only way to change this outcome is to try and invoke the curse of Murray Walker.

7 - Alex Wurz appears to be Fernando Alonso's new manager

8 - Harsh...

9 - Renault not enjoying watching an ex-employee get the better of them

10 - More radio confusion at Mercedes...

11 - Poor old Alonso, at least he can still laugh

12 - Verstappen is the new Vettel

13 - The BBC getting well ahead of themselves...

...announcing a fifth title for Lewis.

14 - Well, imagine how the others felt as you flew past them Max...

15 - Praise for Lewis from Nico Rosberg. He should print this out and frame it

16 - Did anybody else notice Hamilton's impressive new barnet?

17 - Driver of the Day Max Verstappen

Award for most impressive hair growth in a fortnight, Lewis Hamilton.

    • You think the Chinese Grand Prix was boring? I thought it was pretty good, big improvement on Australia.
