During the winter months, motorsport fans are always curious about what happens behind the doors of Formula 1 team factories, how the construction of cars is progressing, and what the expectations are for the upcoming Formula One season. Yet, nothing leaks from the headquarters, except for some indiscretions reported by the media. And, as always, news about Ferrari already declares it the “winter champion,” with encouraging prospects and excellent initial data from the simulator. On the contrary, little is known about rivals, except for their failures.
Just a few days ago, an article from Motorsport reported that Red Bull had not passed the FIA crash test, while the Italian side did. Nothing too worrying for the Milton Keynes team; rather, it’s a demonstration that they are once again pushing the car to the limit, which should worry their opponents.
On social media, the first reactions to what happened were not lacking, including funny TikTok videos. In one of these, you see the viral child of the moment announcing, in front of his gifts: “I didn’t expect it from Santa Claus; I thank all the elves.” But in this case, there were no gift packages; instead, there was the news of the failed crash test from Red Bull, and above the child was the name of Charles Leclerc.
This sketch also reached the person directly involved and the Ferrari driver did not miss the opportunity to leave a like, dividing the online audience. On one hand, there are those who took it in good humor, while others found this episode not to their liking.
