Lewis Hamilton betrays fan after liking her tweet

Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Max Verstappen have completed the podium three times in Formula 1.

Seven-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton has sent the Formula 1 community into hysterics following a tweet the Mercedes driver liked, following last weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix.

Hamilton once again performed brilliantly at the Circuit de Gilles-Villeneuve, a venue he’s been victorious at seven times in his F1 career.

Whilst he didn’t win last Sunday, he did claim a second consecutive podium, marking his third rostrum of 2023.

Hamilton finished third after being defeated by former team-mate Fernando Alonso, in what was a great battle for second which lasted the entire race.

Unsurprisingly, Max Verstappen was ahead of the duo, as the reigning World Champion claimed his fourth consecutive win and his sixth of the season.

Verstappen’s win also saw him match three-time World Champion Ayrton Senna as a 41-time race winner, further implementing the Red Bull driver’s name into the record books.

It was certainly a well-decorated rostrum, with the trio boasting 11 titles between them.

The three drivers did also feature on the podium together at the Australian Grand Prix earlier in the season, where Verstappen claimed victory ahead of Hamilton and Alonso.

Hamilton was clearly a fan of the trio being on the podium and admitted that it was a “privilege” to join them on the rostrum.

“It’s a privilege to be up here fighting these two who’ve done incredible in their careers,” said Hamilton in the post-race press conference.

“And this is quite an iconic top three. I don’t know if there’s been a top three like this ever before. I don’t believe there has.

“But yeah, so hopefully there’ll be more and hopefully, as Fernando said, there’s a lot of respect between us as we were able to race so closely and trust in one another.

“I’m really hoping at some stage we have more of a level playing field in our cars, and then we’ll have a much more exciting race, I think in the future.”

Given how special the podium was last Sunday, Hamilton took a selfie of the three drivers during the press conference.

One Hamilton fan took a screenshot of Hamilton taking the selfie and threatened to “unfollow him” if he posted it to social media.

Hamilton often posts a collection of photos after every Grand Prix, featuring snaps from both on and off the track.

“If Lewis posts this in his photo dump I am going to unfollow him,” wrote @fastpitstop on Twitter.

Comically, Hamilton not only liked the tweet but he also posted the selfie onto social media, something which the F1 community found hilarious.

It was clearly a sign that Hamilton doesn’t want the negative support, with him seemingly not caring if a fan unfollows him.
