F1 Tweets of the week: a track invasion, cork shoes and the bullet train
Sep 25, 2015, 7:03 PM

It's time to look back at some of the social media messages from the world of F1 that made us smile and that you might have missed.

It's time to look back at some of the social media messages from the world of F1 that made us smile and that you might have missed.

Pretty much anyone who is anyone in F1 is on Twitter these days and they are getting better at it with every week that passes [check out the picture above]. In the spirit of sharing with the community, we’ve selected a few of our favourites.

The Singapore Grand Prix was invaded by a rogue spectator, which led to this slightly underwhelming explanation from the official F1 Twitter feed

The race officials weren’t the only people having a tough time under the lights. Mercedes' mysterious dip in form left it well off the pace and Susie Wolff found that this young fan was the only one who could cheer up her husband Toto.

Red Bull was rather spy-shot trigger-happy in the Singapore paddock. First it spotted some Ferrari mechanics making a delivery and then Nico Rosberg looking unconvinced by a gift for his new baby.

Four-time world champion Alain Prost tweeted his congratulations to Sebastian Vettel (who’s not on twitter so won’t have seen it) after the German driver moved into third place in the F1 victory list with his Singapore win.

By midweek, the F1 circus had arrived in Japan for this weekend’s Grand Prix. Rosberg took the opportunity to ride the famous bullet train. Unfortunately he can’t drive it around Suzuka in an attempt to derail Lewis Hamilton’s championship bid.

Several drivers explored Japan’s unique shopping offers. First Felipe Massa found a toothbrush worthy of Ricciardo’s famous smile…

… then Romain Grosjean found the perfect pair of, ahem, cork trainers.

And finally, following its fourth double retirement of 2015 in Singapore, McLaren was again forced to reminisce about happier times with it’s engine supplier, Honda.
