But the social media teams of the rival teams. Now to those who are not aware, Over the course of the weekend, the team’s Twitter activity was marked by liking a number of negative comments directed at Verstappen and Red Bull.
How did Red Bull take a shot at Mercedes on social media?
This activity continued on Monday. While there was initially silence in the Red Bull camp, the social media team came back with a not-so-small stab under water. On Monday night, a video appeared showing a replay of the start, with Valtteri Bottas being tapped by Daniel Ricciardo.
The team saw an opportunity here: Ricciardo is considered an old friend due to his history with the team, and Red Bull took the opportunity to reference a Beatles song, ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’.
