Pit Chat: Ferrari turn Vettel into Voldemort

Ferrari Pit Chat

Ferrari and the missing name tags, wholesome F1 moments and Daniel Ricciardo being Daniel Ricciardo.

Time to take a look back over the stand-out images, clips and social media posts from the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend…

Wholesome F1

Before we get on to the bee in our bonnet about Ferrari, let’s start by highlighting some of the moments that made our hearts fill with pride.

We had George Russell sticking up for best mate Alex Albon which is always lovely to see.

And it was good to see those comments go down so well with Max Verstappen…ok maybe not.

But Max isn’t all bad. He helped his mate out too over the weekend.

God we miss those two in the same team.

And what about lovely Lando getting his hands dirty after the race? Now this is what we call a team player.

From Vettel to Voldemort

Now onto some slightly more disrespectful matters: Ferrari and He Who Must Not Be Named.

As we all know, Sebastian Vettel is leaving Ferrari at the end of the season. Just in case, Seb wasn’t getting the message that he was no longer wanted at the Scuderia, they have taken the name tags off his Ferrari clothes.

There was a little scepticism over whether this was just a classic Christian Horner sh*t stir but then Exhibit B came along:

It doesn’t matter how good or bad he has been…he deserves so much more respect than this. He is still their head race strategist after all.

And how can you be mean to a guy like this?

And if you still don’t think there is nothing to the name tag business, Kimi Raikkonen got the same treatment.

Any other business

Away from Ferrari, it was good to see Nicholas Latifi has some funny bones in him. He may well need them if Williams cannot improve on their race pace as the season continues.

Everything about this interview was hilarious.

A man who never fails to make us laugh is Danny Ric, who was quite clearly the culprit here.

Ted Kravitz was also reminded of the risks you take when interview Daniel Ricciardo on live TV. Mind you, Ted had it coming taking the p*ss out of the Aussie’s big schnoz.

And Lewis Hamilton wasn’t the only race winner in Hungary. Congratulations to Romain Grosjean! Let’s hope the brakes work properly on that thing…

Romain Grosjean
Last word

Over to Lewis Hamilton now after learning he now has a mere 90 pole positions to his name.

Holy sh*t indeed.

Right, everyone go have a well deserved break and we’ll all come back fresh and ready for another lovely triple header. Until then…
