The Swiss driver has been constantly active on social media with updates on his new place in the US. However, a recent one invited a lot of attention on Twitter. He recently tweeted out that there was a snake in the pool of his new home in Florida. The F1 fans wasted no time in drawing parallels with the current F1 drama.

The 2021 F1 finale in Abu Dhabi saw some controversial calls be made towards the end, which changed the course of the championship. A chunk of the F1 community caught race director Masi in the heat of the situation. Although it has been a few weeks since the season ended, the controversy is still alive.

More recently, he tweeted about a snake that he found in the pool of his house and F1 fans burst into funny reactions.
