You know something truly wonderful has happened when the most competitive entities on Earth are congratulating one another. Kevin Magnussen’s pole position (yes, you read that correctly) is one such occasion. Social media admins up and down the pit lane are spamming their clapping emojis as F1 celebrates a truly iconic moment.
We bloody love F1 at moments like this.

You do, indeed, love to see it.
We’re also not surprised to see Williams and AlphaTauri not send tweets, yet – they’re both battling Haas in the championship for position 👀
