Lotus-Mercedes F1 Team tried to had fun with Scuderia Ferrari F1 Team principal Maurizio Arrivabene. After creating these funny images Lotus said, “We may have had a little bit too much spare time this morning when the Austrian test was rained off… Oops.”
Lotus cropped the back image of Arrivabene and pasted it over famous film scenes. They titled the series as “#ArrivabeneIsEverywhere”. Lotus maybe teasing him due to Ferrari’s driver Kimi Räikkönen crashing into McLaren’s Fernando Alonso at 2015 Austrian Grand Prix. Alonso was Ferrari’s driver from 2010 to 2014.
Lotus fitted Maurizio Arrivabene in scenes namely –
- 22 Jump Street
- Indiana Jones
- Jurassic World
- Star Wars
- The Stig when he visited Lotus F1 Team HQ
- The Twilight Saga
As far as racing was concerned, Lotus was lower than Ferrari at Austrian GP. Lotus driver Pastor Maldonado stood 7th while Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel was at 4th position. Both teams had their other driver got retired at Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria.
Scuderia Ferrari is yet to reply back to these images called “#ArrivabeneIsEverywhere”.
