A well-known phrase to anyone who loves the sport, it’s a beautiful sight watching F1 Twitter blow up with the line Rawe Ceek with the line. You know the excitement has been bubbling up when the fans bring out the memes to the site.

An F1 fan’s favorite line

The only three words one likes to hear on a Monday morning: “It’s race week.” But what is Rawe Ceek and why does Twitter go gaga over it?

The credit goes to Ferrari and its graphic designer. To hype the 2020 British GP, Ferrari tweeted the same old date and time details, with a very interesting poster attached to it. Simply, “Race Week,” at first glance the words looked like “Rawe Ceek.”

Very quickly it became a meme, with other F1 teams using the term again. Over a year later, the inside joke lives on.
