For the second race in a row, all I can say is: “WOW!”
How was that for a thrilling race? Full of wheel-to-wheel racing up and down the field. Sure, there were a few spills along the way, but that certainly makes things interesting and always increases the number of funny tweets.
Talking of spills, I could have done several ‘special editions’ this week, but I decided to devote an entire special edition to Haas. They’ve been in the news this week, not for their racing, but for their title sponsor and a certain tweet that was sent on Wednesday evening. But due to the action of one of their drivers at the beginning of the race, a flurry of funny tweets was submitted prompting a special Haas edition. So, keep your eyes peeled for that.
Back to the race itself, I definitely needed a lie-down and a cup of tea after 52 laps of full-on action.
Now refreshed and revived, I have deliberated and judged this week’s Funniest Tweet Awards for the British Grand Prix 2019.
Ladies and gentlemen … your Top 10 are as follows:
@dibhayles as this week’s director decides to cut away to the crowds during the exciting parts at the beginning of the race … every single time!
@RJoseRazoJr with a handy track guide for getting through the Maggots-Beckett complex at Silverstone.
@Arnibarani with a glimpse into Romain Grosjean’s future at the end of this season. Can anyone else see him staying in F1 in 2020?
@Charliebartman with live footage from Verstappen’s car after Vettel rear-ended him and sent him flying … literally … Vertappen still managed to limp home in fifth … although that’s more than can be said for Vettel, who finished second to last with a 10-second penalty to boot. Do you think Vettel has gone off the boil this season? Can you see him still driving in 2020, or will he call it quits?
@PatrickSikler with live footage from the Ferrari strategy team room, as they, yet again, manage to make a complete hash of Charles Leclerc’s pitstop, helping him lose places. However, thanks to his team-mate rear-ending Verstappen, Leclerc did manage to stand on the third step of the podium.
@Mjwhizzle with a flashback to the 80s as both Williams’ cars finish ahead of Vettel’s Ferrari … OK. Admittedly, that was because Vettel crashed … but still … it’s nice to reminisce once in a while … do you agree?
@gizabooboo with live footage of Max and Charles ongoing fight as they pit at the same time and end up side to side travelling down the pitlane to rejoin the track …
@_DavidBroad_ with live footage of Vettel closing in on Verstappen after Max had overtaken him … shame he didn’t see the corner coming though … *inserts a ‘should have gone to Specsavers’ comment*
@timwagner66 proving that in life you can always count on Ferrari to screw up the race weekend for themselves somehow …
@Jontys_Corner with live footage of the Ferrari Strategy team during the race …
Congratulations to everyone who made the Top 10. And thank you to everyone who tweeted, tagged me and generally took part. It certainly kept me on my toes. Every single tweet that I judged is on my Twitter feed (@Pitlane_Girl).
Now it’s your turn.
Which of the Top 10 was your favourite?
Or was there another that I missed, don’t forget the Haas special edition is up next, if you were wondering where all the Haas tweets were.
Either way, let me know right now in the comments below.
