Both Lando Norris and his McLaren team have taken to X, formerly known as Twitter, to tease Lewis Hamilton, after the seven-time world champion's disqualification meant that Norris claimed another second-place finish at the United States Grand Prix.
That meant that Norris, who had been overtaken by Hamilton in the closing stages of the race as the 38-year-old attempted to chase down eventual winner Max Verstappen, was promoted up the order to claim his fifth second-place finish of the season, in his 100th career Grand Prix.
Leclerc's disqualification also meant that Norris was able to jump ahead of the Monagasque driver in the drivers' championship, proving what a super job the young Brit has been doing in 2023, particularly since the British Grand Prix.
In a post on his X account, Norris thanked Hamilton for his "gift" of second place, hilariously altering the picture he had taken with his third-place trophy.
Williams benefitted hugely from the eventual disqualifications that came, with both of their drivers going from no points to ninth and tenth place respectively, meaning Logan Sargeant was able to score his first ever point in F1.
Some believed Hamilton to have been robbed of what was a very good weekend performance from the seven-time world champion where he was once again able to show he has what it takes to still compete with the younger drivers on the grid.
Nevertheless, McLaren perfectly summed up the rollercoaster of emotions that many of their fans, and indeed fans of other teams, would have gone through last night.
