#FormulaFun: The best tweets from the Malaysian Grand Prix
A surefire way to make any sporting event entertaining is Twitter.
Fans, competitors and teams often put out some gold on social media at the expense of themselves and others. Formula One is no exception – and with that in mind, we’ve compiled the best tweets from yesterday’s Malaysian Grand Prix.

Whether you love him or hate him, Lewis Hamilton can be great with his fans. Young Brandon is no exception, even when he threw a curveball at the three-time champion.

Daniil’s pain is Max’s gain
