Did you enjoy that?
After 111 days, F1 is back!
Under a sunny, blue Melbourne sky it was quite exciting wasn’t it?
WOW! What a performance by Valtteri Bottas and following his admission that he had porridge for breakfast, expect porridge sales to go through the roof.
And of course, despite the early hour for many of us there was a plethora of funny tweets.
I’ve missed doing these so much, so thank you for all the hilarity you have provided.
As always, it was really difficult to whittle them down to just 10, but I had to do it.
An honorary mention goes to @tooonarmy for finally explaining what Haas stands for:
10th place goes to @LastLapPodcast and this tweet about the difference at Ferrari from last season to this! Despite a strong performance during winter testing, their pace was definitely off the mark today.
In 9th place is @Jack_Bown with live footage from every single driver in the top 10 during the closing stages of the race. They all want that point for the fastest lap, after all that’s a potential extra 21 points over the course of the season.
8th place goes to @JVRSRN4 and this tweet about the full speed of the new Williams car. Anyone else feel desperately sorry for everyone at Williams? There’s clearly something wrong, and I hope they can resolve it soon.
7th place goes to @Jontys_Corner and a sense of Groundhog Day at McLaren as Sainz pulls into the pitlane on fire
In 6th place is @RJoseRazoJr with live footage from Gasly’s cockpit as he tries to overtake former Red Bull driver, F1 returner Daniil Kvyat
In 5th place is @KennyGreybeard and his tweet following Max Verstappen’s little off onto the grass
Have you caught the new Netflix series ‘Drive to Survive’? Apparently, Haas Teamp Principal, Gunther Steiner has emerged as a bit of a star. In 4th place is @PatrickSikler and his tweet following Grosjean’s retirement after Haas, yet again, bodged the pitstop and didn’t attach a wheel properly.
3rd place goes to @RenaultF1Team and their very kind translation of Mercedes radio transmissions
2nd places goes to @timwagner66 and this tweet following that disastrous Haas pitstop on Grosjean’s car…
And the first winner of this season, in 1st place is @TarasDemerson and this hilarious tweet about new Alfa Romeo driver, Giovanzzi and his ability to keep half the grid behind him as he struggled on old tyres. (It properly made me laugh out loud)
So there you have it.

- Follow me on Twitter (@Pitlane_Girl)
- During the race (from lights out to the chequered flag) simply tweet something funny
- Make sure you tag me
- Cross fingers that (a) I see the tweet and (b) you make the top 10 cut
