Sir Lewis Hamilton has seemingly blocked a Formula 1 meme page on Instagram, around a week after the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix.
The account in question, @F1Troll_, is the largest Formula One meme page on Instagram, with it currently having just shy of a half-a-million followers.
On Sunday, after some followers queried why the page had seemingly unfollowed Hamilton, the account’s admin revealed in a story post that they didn’t and the seven-time World Champion seems to have blocked his meme page.
“Some of you dm’d me to ask why I unfollowed Lewis. I didn’t, looks like he blocked me,” @F1Troll_ wrote in a story post.
The account posted several clusters of memes following the Hungarian Grand Prix, including memes which joked that Mercedes and Valtteri Bottas orchestrated the first-corner collision which knocked Sergio Perez out of the grand prix and wrecked Max Verstappen’s race.
With Hamilton outscoring the Dutch ace by a big margin, he retook the lead of the Championship in Hungary.
At this stage, it’s unclear why Hamilton decided to block the F1 meme page and if it was indeed related to something the account posted following the Hungarian Grand Prix.
