Top 10 Funniest Tweet Awards - Saudi Arabia Grand Prix 2021

This week: That moment when you're left waiting for your Uber, Gremlins, bad TV coverage (again), Ferris Bueller, and Vettel's disintegrating car ...

7w ago

Everyone calmed down after that race?

Not going to blather on today ... it's late and I'm trying to watch Top Gear as I type ... the epitome of multi-tasking.

After a rather boring 15 or so laps, it then all kicked off for the remaining 35. And chaotic races ALWAYS equals many, many funny tweets. So I had a really difficult job of picking just 10 today. But pick, I did.

So, without further ado, here are the Top 10 Funniest Tweet Awards for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2021:

10th place

@MsportXtra capturing the moment when Perez was waiting for his ride back to the pit lane ... we've all been there, waiting for what seems like ages ...

9th place

@PodiumPositions with live footage from the TV Director's room as for the umpteenth time this season, they fail to actuallu show the the good bits going on, on track.

8th place

@WarrenM91144451 with live footage of Vettel as he keeps going despite depositing bits of his car on the track ...

7th place

@PGillett2017 with live footage from the Red Bull and Mercedes garage ... is it just me, or has this season sullied F1 with all the off-track shennanigans, bitching and politics? (I thought amateur theatre was bad enough, but this takes it to a whole new level)

6th place

@Arjun_nair8 with footage of Haas Team Principal, Gunther Steiner, make a swift exit after the second Haas retired from the race, having been involved in a teeny clash to bring out the second safety car ... at least he avoided all the chaos ...

5th place

@timwagner66 with live onboard footage with Alonso's gremlins ...

4th place

@beer_mat_movies with a translation of Valtteri's radio message to his team mate, at the beginning of the race ...

3rd place

@sagray with live footage of Bottas explaining why he was driving slightly slow behind the first safety car ... and who can blame him ... true statement!

2nd place

@MichaelGierula with footage of Ocon as he made his way into P1 at the second red flag ...

1st place

@_HerrDavid_ with the reaction of F1 fans everywhere upon hearing the negotiations between Michael Masi and Red Bull during the second red flag ... I may try that, if I get stopped in the future for driving a little bit fast ... do you think it would work??

And there you have it. Hope you enjoyed this week's batch. As always, please let me know your favourites in the comments.

The Funniest Tweet Awards will be back for the final time this year, next week for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ...

Have a good week.

  • I have never seen so many red flags and standing starts in 1 race before.. lol

    Absolute chaos! Although the video footage of Toto getting pissed when Lewis ran into Max was classic! You know for sure that's going to show up in the Netflix series.. lol ;-)

    So, as everyone expected, the final race is going to be the decider. Really hope Lewis has a mechanical failure or gets run off the track or something to put him out of contention. Max deserves this win!

    The video coverage of the race was basically kept at the front. Meanwhile the mid pack were swapping positions and no one could see how or why. Really hope the video director gets fired because there was alot of action on the track but we never caught it. Only in replays. Thankfully the race was plagued with red flags so we can catch up on all the other action on the track. :-)

    The last race is going to be 1 for the books!

    • Yup, I think the TV director maybe needs to go back to film school ... it's definitely not been great this season at all ... and yes, the last race is all to play for ...

  • Chaotic races are good but not dirty races like this. I bet they're going to collide next week.

    • Agree about chaotic races ... dirty racing just sullies the sport ... and to be honest I've really gone off F1 this season because of all the off-track shennanigans ...

    • But it was so true, the parallels with the game show were so clear. If only Noel Tidybeard was in the commentary box

    • ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ I have such high hopes for 2022 hopefully the grid is much much closer.

      What do you think about the whole โ€œhe just brake tested meโ€โ€ฆ.. I mean wasnโ€™t that what Hamilton was accused of from Vettle a couple of years ago?

      I thought it was...
