Major Embarrassment For Red Bull As Celebrities Invited By The Team Publicly Supports Lewis Hamilton At Monaco GP

Formula One resumed this weekend after a long break as the previous race on the calendar, Imola Grand Prix, was canceled in the wake of incessant floods. This weekend, the F1 caravan arrived in the city of Monaco for the most prestigious race of the season. Amid the race, the struggling Mercedes ace, Lewis Hamilton, found some support from unexpected places in the crowd.

Mercedes finally launched its much-awaited upgrades this weekend. The car looked visibly different than what we had previously seen. It had bigger side-pods with a noticeable difference in the floor as well. Moreover, Lewis looked in good touch before crashing into the wall in FP3. Despite damage, the Briton successfully pulled up the P5 position in the qualifying session thanks to Charles Leclerc‘s unfortunate gird penalty. Moreover, Hamilton had massive support from the crowd, with a few coming in from the Red Bull camp as well.

The Monaco Grand Prix remains one of the most prestigious weekends in the Formula 1 calendar, not only attracting racing enthusiasts but also capturing the attention of celebrities from various fields. This year, many celebrities from the Hollywood and sports fraternity attended the event, including Marvel star Tom Holland and renowned Brazilian footballer Neymar Jr. During pre-race shows, both the stars admitted on world television that they were there to support Mercedes star, Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton is a global icon himself and has many connections in the glamour world. Hence, both Tom and Neymar happen to be friends of Lewis.

However, both the superstars’ comments left the Red Bull racing red-faced. Apparently, Tom Holland and Neymar Jr were invited by the drink-based team to showcase their support to them. However, the duo’s public support for Red Bull’s arch nemesis, Lewis Hamilton, became a case of embarrassment for the drink-based team. For what it’s worth, Neymar did clarify that he is rooting for Red Bull as well. Nonetheless, the damage was already done as Red Bull’s image took a hit as Hamilton fans poked fun at the racing giant. Overall, it seems like Red Bull’s decision to invite this set of high-end celebrities backfired on them pretty badly.

The upgrade package looked steady but will still need a few more races to generate the desired pace.
