Can you imagine how much does McLaren admin want to post some memes but can’t? It’s a torture.
If only 1 post: *”Did something happen?”*
\* insert eye of the storm picture \*
I AM THE STORM THAT IS APPROACHING
Did not expect to get MOTIVATED this morning.
Foolishness u/XsStreamMonsterX. Foolishness.
PROVOKING BLACK CLOUDS IN ISOLATION
I AM RECLAIMER OF MY NAME
Nando just judgement cut end the whole Alpine team! Smoking Sexy Style!
if I were McL admin, I'd lose my job for the best chance I'd ever get to use [this](https://c.tenor.com/tQu-LBctuDAAAAAC/community-donald-glover.gif)
Only a matter of time before McLaren announces you as the new admin…
LMFAOOO THAT FITS SO WELL.
IM BEGGING THE ADMIN DO ITTT
[Merc admin used this one too early:](https://cdn.kapwing.com/video_image-W5ZLREDD8S.jpeg)
Merc 2023 lineup just chilling at the table lol.
Red Bull's been awfully quiet as well.
I keep waiting for the sneaky "Norris to Red Bull" announcement with Horner smirking.
They signed Piastri and pay 50% of Alonso’s salary just to fuck Alpine over for 2018
He still misses Abiteboul..
Yuki to replace Max
Daniel to replace max,
Max replacing Latifi,
Latifi replacing Daniel
Latifi still spins at the end of the race.
Honestly with Max’s lead and Ferraris incompetence it would be super entertaining to see if Max could hang onto the WDC if he drove the Alpha Tauri for the rest of the season.
Look at me, i'm the top Scuderia now!
With a gif saying we like a challenge
Redbull social admins don't seem as meme-y as Merc's or Mclaren's
Don’t need memes when you have Horner.
I love Horner, but this is so true.
Too busy trying to convince Horner that he doesn't need the twitter password as part of his management duties.
I'm sure Cyril took out a restraining order preventing anyone from Red Bull tweeting at anything Alpine/Renault... :P
As an nba fan I’m in fucking heaven rn

I’m an NFL and F1 fan. Today has been fucking awesome
Oh fuck, what happened in the NFL? Brb gonna go check
Basically dolphins owner Stephen Ross has been suspended for trying to bribe then HC Flores to lose games on purpose. Apparently he also tried to get Tom Brady to join the team as an owner and player, and also tried to recruit Sean Payton. Dolphins have been docked a first and third rounder.
Well they’ve posted this and icarly already
sir this is mercedes
Scenes when their next post is confirming that Ricciardo stays
I'd sign that contract
Even without the vroom vroom, also a couple million euros won't be bad
I’d sit on DR’s lap for free
@f1fanfic is leaking again
No, no, no. Always you need a da vroom vroom.
No Daniel, you will not have the vroom vroom.
I have been on Reddit all day reading all the hilarious content regarding Alonso/Piastri etc. but this has got to be one of the funniest comments that I actually laughed out loud as I imagined it.
Sounds like a good deal to me.
Now that’s lap-time
… and then an hour later Ricciardo posts that he isn’t staying.
Ricciardo then signs with Aston Martin
Lance gets fired by papa Stroll.
The stroller gets strolled
Lawrence gets fired by Lance.
Stroll to Alpine
[@OscarPiastri] I understand that, without my agreement, McLaren F1 have put out a press release late this afternoon that Daniel is driving for them next year. This is wrong and he has not signed a contract with McLaren for 2023. He will not be driving for McLaren next year.
Piastri: I’ll make my own F1 Team with Blackjack and hookers and Andretti.
The memes would be amazing though. They still are, but they would be as well.
Piastri be like:NANI
DO IT MCLAREN, DO IT!
That's because Piastri is signing with Ferrari. They saw a future so promising, they just had to get in and destroy it.
McLaren announce sister team to accommodate all the drivers they have under contract.
So does Haas, Ferrari, Red Bull, AlphaTauri, Williams.....
Nah they’re posting thirst traps of Charles
I laughed way too hard at this, LMAO.
Too busy trying to remember the URL for Bebo.

Alonso really did execute El Plan
When you come at the king,you best not miss and by god did Alpine miss big time
What’s the reason for Alonso seemingly wanting to screw over Alpine? Did they mess about with re-signing him or ?..
they allegedly just wanted Fernando to be a seat warmer for Piastri for '24, and clearly he didn't want that, so he decided to fuck them over hard
Ohhh I see! Cheers
Not only that they tried to sweaten the pot by telling him "Once we give your seat to Piastri, we'll even put you in our WEC car, aren't we just the best?"
They told 2x LeMan's winner and 2x WEC Champion Fernando Alonso that they'd give him a WEC drive... The man could go to any WEC team right now point at any seat and they'd just give it to him.
Did they do that with the understanding Alonso wanted to quit F1? Or they just being so naive they think WEC is enough?
Honestly couldn't tell you...
Based on Alonso's mic drop/move to Aston I'd say it was equivalent of saying "we'll put you in a nice nursing home" to a man who hasn't even retired yet.
And a guy who is their greatest champion. Like I know F1 is ruthless, but this guy won 2 championships for them.
AM would be absolute mastertrolls if they started using EL PLAN now
>>When you come at the king,you best not miss and by god did Alpine miss big time
Ferrari starts showing the F1 world what a disaster class looks like and Alpine shows up like "Hold my drivers"
The fucking scenes if Ocon announces he ain't racing at Alpine anymore.
I mean, Alpine probably won't survive either
Man this is a perfect reminder why half of entertainment of F1 is behind the scenes, drama and politics. Casual viewers that just watch the races and don’t follow these are missing on a lot haha.
I feel like with modern sports it's the casual fans who don't watch events, but follow the online drama/watch highlights.
Speaking as a guilty party.
Nah I'll do it.
I won't make turn one EVER but we may get the car started.
I seriously thought Renault would quit F1, they have no engine customers, the higher ups don’t care for F1 and El Plan failed. I don’t think they should leave but I bet Renault bosses have calculated the option of leaving.
Honda could replace them. Good riddance.
i wonder if ocon could up his price and sort of blackmail alpine lmao. but i think hes in contract
He doesn’t really have anywhere to go so his position isn’t that strong
i guess hed have to bank on alpine not having a decent replacement
All 3 of them
We are checking
“In regards to drivers, we have no drivers”
Meanwhile, Ferrari are glad that they aren't the biggest laughing stock on the grid for one day
This is their chance to bury their heads in the sand until we go back to dunking on them at Spa.
And now we won’t hear anything for a while since all the various managers and legal teams tell their clients to stop with the social media
McLaren to their drivers: "Don't you dare post a fucking thing or you both are out of a drive"
"All three of you are out of a drive"
Drivers in the McLaren pipeline: "Wait who are you talking to?"
McLaren Principal: Just the 5 McLaren drivers on this zoom call: Lando, Danny, Nando, Piastri, and Senna via force Ghost.
Don't forget our boy Hakkinen. I hear he's about to end his sabbatical.
All 27 of you are out of a drive
BREAKING: McLaren to pull out of Indycar and F1, submits application for WEC
Submits for WRC accidentally
Omggggg this is hilarious ! I’m in stitches over these hilarious comments
McLaren to Danny Ricc: that doesn’t mean you, you post whatever you want.
Wait so Ric out and Piastri in at mcl?
That seems to be what everyone is thinking. Otherwise, why would Piastri ditch Alpine?
Maybe Max is going to Williams?
Max moves and Williams return to the front of the grid?
Max: "I was bored winning with the best team, so I've put the difficulty to "Impossible" and signed for Williams"
I love that none of the other f1 drivers have posted anything, but drivers from every other series are just going ham
I would love if the ones with secure seats started memeing
Bottas: "Man imagine having a one year contract right about now. Couldn't be me"
Russell: “imagine being so messy your own prize junior turns you down. Can’t relate!”
I live for this shit
And never had I missed Horner and Marko's pressers this much!! ARGGHHH! The sheer shithousery would've been delightful!
Watch them announce piastri for AT
That would be fire and 100% a move red bull would do
Gasly to Alpine, Piastri to AT and switches with Perez soon enough
Gasly is already resigned for AT. Yuki would lose his seat.
Contracts don't mean anything in Formula 1 these days, Racing Point fired Checo even though he was supposed to stay with them in 2021. If Red Bull see an opportunity to poach a rising talent, they'll find a way.
Refusing to drive for Alpine but instead driving in the white/dark blue shitbox!
The white/dark blue shitbox with promise of the yellow/dark blue frontrunner after perez
True, there is a difference between getting a prospect to that second RBR seat and being there just waiting for a shot somewhere else, and in the Piastri case it's the first one.
Seb truly went out with a bang. Gave us the best silly season in years, if not the best.
Remember last year when Kimi announced his retirement and we were sad, and then the movements fell into place nicely, and we all thought it was the best?
We even got kmag! It was such a wonderful world for those few moments.
Ferrari is probably happy to have some heat taken off them
Imagine being rejected by your own Academy driver
"Were they on hards? " "lmao, yeah"
In awe of the L plan
Alpine letting Ferrari strategists run their Twitter for a day maybe wasn’t a great idea
Even the teams are shitposting right now. I love me some silly season
George Russell the kind of guy to patiently wait for his promotion
Tbh this whole ordeal kinda made me respect Russell a bit more. Dude absolutely dominated a stacked F2 grid and had to drive a piece of junk Williams in his first season. Piastri decided it was well below his level(which tbf Williams kinda is) and decided to flip off Alpine and go to Mclaren
I mean russell had to drive the junk williams for 3 seasons before moving up, even better than just the first one.
I know it’s deeply unpopular but the way Oscars camp is acting over the Alpine seat it’s making me side eye. Is a clear seat in a team performing better than Mclaren that bad over a seat that has competition for 3 other drivers minimum. Also not calling back Otmar is wild, so much of this mess could have been avoided with appropriate private communication.
Announcing Oscar is also making wonder what kind of team Otmar is running
Allegedly Alpine had until the end of June to secure him a drive as per his contract which they have apparently failed to do.
Not sure what he owes them at this point if they (allegedly) haven't fulfilled their contractual obligations.
Prost left at the start of this year didn’t he. It’s probably a shitshow over there and Piastri wants no part of it
This is the thing that makes me wonder what the hell Piastri and Webber are smoking.
The Alpine is not a bad car. Arguably, it's the best behind the Red Bull/Ferrari/Mercedes trio. It's not as if Piastri is trying to upgrade from the Williams or the Haas - performance wise, the McLaren is a sideways move at best.
I honestly can’t tell if Oscar and Webber are playing chess or checkers it’s v confusing to me to roll up in the Mclaren seat that has so many people on it they just another group that fell for Zak Browns sweet nothings
For now the McLaren isn’t great but they have a lot more resources and they’re a much better run team.
Maybe Alpine is a shitshow behind the scenes or maybe Alpine are thinking of pulling out from f1. Prost deciding to leave was already concerning tbh
The Ocon/Russell partnership we were promised!
He deserves a lot of respect for being patient (for the most part). Looking at the Alpine mess it also seems like a miracle he didn’t get screwed in some creative way while he waited.
“And so here’s another one of me shirtless…”
Not your shirtless photo, George, not now.
Piastri liked this tweet 💀
Liked by Oscar Piastri
George Russell is the kind of guy that sips tea while watching Alpine melts down on Twitter.
You know I figured that this was going to be a slow break and so I thought that I wouldn't have to swing by here that often to check up on the news.....
.....holy fuck what is happening barely two days later and suddenly EVERY DAY IS RACE DAY hahahahahaha LET CHAOS REIGN!
*joins the Refresh Button Club and giggles maniacally*
Always nice to have fresh F1 drama and politics during the breaks to keep things interesting! The summer and winter breaks are usually tortuously bleak periods for us fans, where we're typically stuck with F1 media outlets and fan forums recycling old stories from before the break started, in an almost futile attempt to fill the void, as we yearn for racing to resume, or for pre-season testing to begin.
Keep it coming F1!
Someone do the clip of Max / Lewis / George in the cooldown room, and Lewis walks in and asks: "Piastri is not joining AM?" And Max turns around and says "No" and all three start laughing.
It's fun when you f5 instead of getting f5'd isnt it MERC??
i'm waiting for the biggest plot twist ever
Webber talking to marko to put piastri in alpha tauri , Hadjar will join him soon & eventually one of them will make it to redbull
Webber getting the Alpine drive instead would be bigger ;-)
Thankfully the Merc meme means Piastri is not replacing Hamilton
was anyone thinking that seriously? hammy could be going for at least another 2-3 years minimum
No, but it *would* be a plot twist.
The real plot twist is that Button is involved too and Danny Ric is heading to Williams
All of this is so fucking entertaining
Merc Admin savage as always <3
Ferrari: We are checking.
F1 is just the kardashians for men
Everyone is laughing at Alpine, I am laughing at Piastri - why throw away a guaranteed seat in a midfield team?
Maybe he already signed for McLaren and they're waiting for Ric to find another seat before announcing. Just like Russell and Bottas last year.
Oh I’m loving every single minute of this, absolute joy
I think we should all thank Alpine for giving us something to talk about during the break.
Anyone else getting the impression that Otmar may not be popular in the paddock?
Everybody is throwing gas onto the fire right now.
At this point I want Lewis to just announce his retirement, see everyone heads explode and then 5 mimutes later say Rosco took his phone or "SIKE!"

This is going to be great to watch on DTS
Alpine-Piastri fiasco occurs...
Rest of pitlane: it's lights out and F5-ing away we go.
Mercedes admin an absolute menace
Who is this admin 😂 they are one of us.
Ferrari should hire Alonso as their strategist
I remember Cyril saying to Horner that he now didn't have an engine and a driver for next year when Redbull changed engine suppliers and Renault signed Ricciardo. I guess now Alpine is sort of in the same boat lol
George is so tall 😲
