ICYMI: Hollywood trends, ice baths, broken dreams – this is the best social media from Hungary

ICYMI: Hollywood trends, ice baths, broken dreams – this is the best social media from Hungary

Hungary delivered on the action front with wet weather, crashes, tire confusion and more. Max Verstappen was victorious again, but there was plenty of off-track shenanigans during Red Bull’s record-breaking run. Here are some of the best social media you might be missing from Hungry…

Ricardo’s return

Fans were delighted to see Honey Badger back on the grid, with the popular Aussie finishing 13th with a respectable drive on race day. Sporting a new helmet design, his Cheshire-cat smile firmly on, Ricciardo behaved himself throughout the weekend – but it wasn’t long before he was back to his old antics.

A big number for Williams

They may not have scored the points, but Williams managed to celebrate their 800th race in Hungary – the third constructor to reach that mark after Ferrari and McLaren. That’s a big number from a team with a big history.

Hul-KEN-berg’s new dr

Nico Hulkenberg’s new hairdo was certainly an eye-catcher, but with Sunday’s race at a slower pace he’d better go for the ‘go fast’ racing stripes.

However, Bleach Blonde certainly made the paddock smile a lot, and it wasn’t just the Barbie movie that German referenced herself as she pulled off another good impression of a strong female character.

Oppenheimer or Barbie?!

It’s a choice that has captured the internet all week, with Hulkenberg nailing his colors so firmly to the mast. But what about the rest of us? Pierre Gasly seemed to have a foot in both camps, with Alex Alban’s previous fashion choices firmly entrenched in Germany as Team Barbie, and when it came down to Alfa, it was easy to see which way their drivers were going.

Perez’s biggest fan

You couldn’t help but feel for the kid in the crowd who came to watch his hero Sergio Perez drive. Instead he witnessed the Mexican crash in FP1 – and was left upset as a result. Red Bull invited him and his dad to the garage so all is well.

Chili by name, Chili by nature

Carlos Sainz may be nicknamed Chilli, but the Spaniard isn’t a big fan of cold water. Even the presence of a rubber duck couldn’t improve the mood of Sains, who jumped into the ice bath after the session…

A not so subtle shade

Lewis Hamilton took a record 104th pole position on Saturday and while he made a peace sign, his team saw something very different from the top.

America has the ability

Terry Crews was ahead of the Hungarian GP as Red Bull’s guest. Although he confirmed that he would not be auditioning for the big picture Hollywood F1 due to his less-than-optimal physique compared to the current crop of F1 drivers, he was keen to soak up the atmosphere.

Why not be a guest of the team that went on to break some huge records on race day?!

A papaya bull in a china shop

Oh dear Lando Norris – the McLaren man’s usual champagne celebration had unexpected consequences on the podium as he managed to overturn and smash Max Verstappen’s race-winning trophy.

We’re sure McLaren will deliver on their rivals by delivering an even stronger superglue to Milton Keynes…
