WOW! That was such an exciting race, well worth the early alarm call to watch it.
And as ever I was not disappointed with the huge amount of hilarious tweets in my Twitter timeline. You guys never fail to amuse.
This was probably the hardest and closest decision I had to make. I struggled to whittle the field down to less than 10. It was very difficult to choose the Top 5, which is why this week I also have two honorary mentions.
The first is last year’s Funniest Tweet Award champion @BadgerGP for this brilliant gif relating to the mid-field fight between Kvyat, Perez and Massa
The second is @Racerx34 for this tweet shortly after Giovanazzi crashed out of the race:
But without further ado, here are my, and my co-judge’s, top 5.
In 5th place is a team tweet from Mercedes – they tweeted about wheel-to-wheel action between Vettel and Verstappen for 2nd place, and then followed it up saying they were tweeting from the future as the action hadn’t actually happened … yet – it did a few laps further on 😉
In 4th place is the very funny Giedo van der Garde for this tweet about the amazing progress ax Verstappen made on the first lap:
3rd place goes to Grand Prix Diary:
This week’s runner-up is Simon Brooks for this hilarious tweet about the lunge Vettel took at Turn 6 to overtake. And they said overtaking would be difficult this year – Messrs Vettel and Verstappen are making it look easy!!
Drum roll please, but this week’s winner is Stargate Oracle for this hilarious tweet about the Honda engines after Alonso retired (and there were so many tweets about Alonso pushing like an animal all weekend). In fact I loved the tweet so much, I couldn’t just do with the screen shot, so I tracked down the gif that goes with it 😉
So, there you have it, an eventful and definitely a funny tweet-filled race. Onwards to Bahrain next week.
To be in with a chance of getting in to the top five funny tweets and winning, nothing but kudos, all you need to do is follow me on Twitter (@Pitlane_Girl) and I will follow back.
Til next week.
