Ever since F1 woke up from the summer break during late-August, it has been utter chaos with teams and drivers having to travel to 3 different Grand Prix over 3 successive weekends. And of course, with no F1 action this weekend, fans are quite a bit disappointed, but not Mercedes AMG.

Mercedes look absolutely delighted with the fact that there is no racing this weekend. And how do you think they shared their delight with the fans? Well, unsurprisingly through social media.

The Brackley outfit took to Twitter to post a rather hilarious tweet starring a gif of team principal, Toto Wolff. The clip shows the Austrian celebrating one of his driver’s on-track success by wildly screaming, ‘yes’. Mercedes further captioned the gif too.

That moment when you realise there’s no F1 race this weekend…,” it said. But, of course, there are others things to keep an F1 fan occupied this weekend.

The primary of all being Netflix’s latest release, Schumacher, a documentary film of F1 racing legend, Michael Schumacher. The 110-minute film is definitely for the F1 fanatics around the world, as it holds some interesting unseen footage of both on-track and off-track incidents involving the German. 

Mercedes or Red Bull: who is finishing at the top next weekend?

Hold your breath fans. It is just this one week we’ll be missing the action. F1 will be heading to Sochi for the Russian Grand Prix next weekend, and there are some interesting topics to look forward to, both ahead and over the race weekend.

The Hamilton-Verstappen debacle stands tall in this list. Neither Hamilton nor Verstappen has spoken of it since Sunday afternoon at Monza. And we may as well come across possible new angles and opinions and even more accusations.

Apart from the title rivalry, there is also Bottas’ resurgence. The Finn had a tough start to his current and final season with Mercedes. However, he doesn’t seem lost anymore, especially since Mercedes’ contract termination announcement.

Bottas is looking much comfortable, knowing he has nothing to lose from here. His dominant display at Monza being an example. So, with Sochi being a strong circuit for Bottas, there are chances that the future Alfa Romeo driver could yet again lead the way for Mercedes.

Overall, chin-up fans! Hardly a week to go for some intense wheel-to-wheel action over the high-speed circuit of Sochi Autodrom. But, who will finish ahead in the end?
