Social media has gnawed into our lives, so much so that even if we might despise it for taking a lot of our time, we can’t really keep away from it.
Celebrities have taken to social media really well, as it gives them the best chance to interact with their fans, who otherwise would have to go to greater lengths to come face to face(or e-face to face in this case with their heroes.
Now, what social media has also provided is a way for the celebrities to interact with each other, with a lot of those interactions giving fans(and media houses) a lot of content to play with.
Lewis Hamilton has been at the forefront of the F1 social media revolution with his team Mercedes backing him pretty well.
Now, with the off season upon us and an exciting 2019 season line up, new social media relationships are bound to come into being.
And the best of the lot has already gone through, with Hamilton following Ferrari’s new recruit, Charles Leclerc on Instagram.
While the ‘incident’ took place last night, it has come more into the public eye after Mercedes tweeted about it, maybe signalling that a new rivalry could be up for grabs next year.
And with the way that Leclerc has performed this year, that surely could be the case.

With Mercedes giving Lewis’ Instagram action some attention, fans too didn’t quite fall behind.
Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
