Ferrari and Mercedes are not engaged in battle on the track. Mercedes leads the race and Ferrari is barely staying afloat. However, if you want to look for some action between the two, their twitter handles will live up to your expectations.

Although Mercedes has never verbally taken a dig at the Prancing Horse, their twitter handle lights up like a Christmas tree every race weekend. Over the past few weeks, Mercedes have come down hard on the Italians. Finally, it was time to retaliate.

Mercedes AMG had replied to a fan with,” Ferrari is always behind Lewis.” Well, the Scuderia Ferrari did not let this slide. In a reply to Mercedes, the Italians established their supremacy outside the track.

Dear Merc, true that sometimes Lewis has a Ferrari behind him, but from what we can see he also gets out of one every so often as well ...” read the post with Lewis sitting back on the bonnet of his Ferrari LaFerrari.

Hamilton has a wide variety of cars, which also includes two dazzling Ferraris.

The Italians are going through one of the worst periods in their racing history. However, that will not be the end of them. Team Principal Binotto has drawn similarities to other phases of Ferrari history, just to conclude that they have always pulled through.

The Red Italians used to be the best on the field. However, since the Mercedes domination, their class has deteriorated.

Things further aggravated when the relation with Vettel went bitter this season. However, Ferrari comes with promise for next year and the tables might turn.

Whatever happens on track, the twitter banter is always there for us. The reply from Ferrari this time simply makes it more interesting. With both parties engaging in healthy leg-pulling, the fans are in for a treat.

The Red Italians are not submissive. They may be under turmoil in and out, but they don’t give up. The entire team understands the quality that Charles Leclerc promises. Well, give him the right car and the Monagasse will give them the podiums.

Ferrari know that they have a problematic car this season. The SF1000’s are hard to understand, and harder to maneuver. Yet Leclerc manages to keep it within P5. His class received praise from several pundits and we know that he is destined for greatness.
