As the 2018 F1 campaign edges closer and closer, the calendar dictated some time in Spain where the circumstances of the meeting created plenty of opportunity for some humorous social media commentary and it seemed everyone had their bit to add.

They don’t call it ‘winter testing’ for nothing.

This was the scene at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya where unusually cold temperatures resulted in limited running at the first Formula One pre-season test of the 2018 season.

However, the snowy scenes did at least provide with some hilarious social media posts from teams, drivers and fans.

Here is a look back at 10 of the funniest social media posts that we saw throughout the test.

#1: Daniel The Songbird

We sincerely hope that Daniel Ricciardo never retires because who else could provide us with such great entertainment.

#3: Hardworking Max
