SUZUKA, JAPAN - OCTOBER 13: Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Toro Rosso fans show their support before

You can't be watching social media all the time, so let us help you catch up on some moments you may have missed over the Japanese Grand Prix weekend.

Alternative exercise?

His love for cycing in duathlons is well-known but based on Sunday's performance in Suzuka, the Finn should stick to racing cars for a while yet.

Warming up for the race or a night out in Tokyo?

This doesn't seem the most efficient pit stop practice, but at least the Haas mechanics are light on their feet.

Giving Haas a run for their money...

These kids sure have all the moves, but Lewis Hamilton has some work to do on his timing.

Everyone is a Valtteri fan

Although given the events at the start of the race, we think Vettel might not be framing his Bottas autograph after all...

The perks of Red Bull being powered by Honda

His race might have ended early, but the weekend wasn't a total bust for Verstappen - he got to drive this beauty after all...

A new masterpiece?

We're used to helmet design changing at a driver's home race, but what about changing the medium? Norris went for artistic flair in Japan...

Hanging with some fans...

Danny Ric always gives off the impression that he pretty hip and down with the kids, but he took that to a whole new level last week...

Imagine steering in those

The effort the fans go to here is extraordinary, but while hats and overalls are the norm, one fan went all the way to demonstrate their love for Alfa...

Showing off some ball skills

With Australia due to play England in the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup next weekend, Ricciardo got in some early bragging rights...

Cannibalism down at Haas

What are the rules on eating your bosses face? Asking for a friend...

No plans? No worries...

With Saturday's running cancelled, twenty highly competitve men suddenly had some free time on their hands and promptly decided to start the fight for victory a day early... Who won? They are staying tight-lipped!

Meanwhile, a more old-fashioned past time

Romain Grosjean elected to leave the video games to the kids, and spent his time off fashioning a Tyrroll P34, which led to a tempting invitation from a former World Champion...

Rugby is in town

Plenty of players from the Rugby World Cup came to get a taste of the action, with the Azzurri players rather dwarfing the Ferrari garage...

No chauffeur required

If you are one of the twenty fastest drivers in the world, of course you give yourself a lift back to the pits.

Hand-eye coordination

Ricciardo's hidden talents aren't limited to accents and singing it appears, and they do call F1 a 'circus' afterall...

It's bound to get messy...

The ultimate professional outfit one minute, out-of-tune karaoke and air horns the next. Safe to say Mercedes celebrated in style on Sunday.

Put me in anything...

... And I'll be quick. As long as it has wheels, Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris are happy.

A podium with a difference

Following the hotly anticipated launch of the second ‘BAPE X Formula 1’ fashion collaboration, the iconic brand took over the podium in Suzuka. The perfect backdrop against which for Bottas and co to celebrate.
