Welcome to another special edition of the Funniest Tweet Awards, this time in honour of Sebastian Vettel who saw a little bit more red mist and had a little bit more impatience during today’s race.
Unfortunately, this was at the expense of his championship title fight, but definitely not for the good folks of Twitter, who rose to the occasion and produced some truly hilarious tweets,
Without further ado here is the Top 10 ‘Vettel’ Funniest Tweet Awards:
In 10th place is @SimonGBrooks for on board footage of Vettel as he attempted to overtake Max Verstappen, despite knowing Max had a 5-second time penalty for his incident with Kimi earlier. Definitely a case of red mist!
9th place goes to @MostlyWriting asking what most F1 fans were asking too as Vettel’s championship hopes are fading quicker than the early autumnal morning mist
8th place goes to @PitCrew_Online with the conspiracy theory of Vettel’s easy passes on Leclerc both times during the race…
7th place goes to @Planet_F1 with an image of Vettel’s biggest enemy this weekend, the spoon curve. Did anyone else lose track of the number of times it proved a little tricky round that corner?
In 6th place is @SkyF1Insider showing accurate footage of Ferrari and Vettel’s championship chances following this race…
In 5th place is @ParthP77 with live footage of the Ferrari pit wall folloiwng Vettel’s incident with Verstappen that left him near the back of the grid with a monumental hill to climb
4th place goes to @TarasDemerson for track footage of the Vettel/Verstappen incident
In 3rd place is @dibhayles as with every incident there’s always a witness and this weekend it’s a Haiku inspired Kimi
2nd place goes to @RenaultSportF1 saying what everyone else was thinking during the incident…
And the winner, in 1st place is @Jontys_Corner with this tweet about Vettel’s championship title hopes following this race … talk about throwing it away!
And there you have it, the Vettel special edition of the Top 10 Funniest Tweet awards following a very eventful Japanese Grand Prix.
If you’re on Twitter and fancy playing along, it couldn’t be simpler. All you have to do is follow me and then during the race tweet something funny. Tag me on the tweet, so I don’t miss it, and I then judge the ones I collect.
You win kudos and bragging rights until the next race and awarded points towards the Funniest Tweet Award championship which run during each F1 season.
I can’t believe there’s only four races left this season.
See you in Austin, where we’ll do this all over again.
