The start to the US Grand Prix was a dramatic one. Kimi Raikkonen took the lead from Lewis Hamilton while Sebastian Vettel spun following a collision with Daniel Ricciardo.
Ricciardo, having run strongly, had mechanical problems meaning he had another mechanical failure to his name. Other drivers eliminated include Fernando Alonso who was hit by Lance Stroll and Romain Grosjean who was involved with Charles Leclerc.
More than the accidents, it was a hilarious incident that got everyone’s attention. Somewhere around lap 9, Helicopter shots captured someone making fake engine noises which got broadcasted all over the world. Fans couldn’t keep their calm and expressed their delight on Twitter:
