AUSTIN, TEXAS - OCTOBER 31: Daniil Kvyat of Scuderia Toro Rosso and Russia and Pierre Gasly of

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 United States Grand Prix weekend.

Lance comes of age

Lance Stroll turned 21 between the Mexican and United States Grands Prix, but with such a quick turnaround, the drinking might have to wait...

A dead ringer?

Daniel Ricciardo couldn't resist the opportunity to poke some fun at his former team mate, Max Verstappen - although sloth-like isn't the first description you'd normally apply to an F1 driver...

All together now...

"Mmmmm donuts." Homer Simpson's favourite, and always a big-hit with F1 fans worldwide. Valtteri Bottas, Daniel Ricciardo and the Red Bull boys duly delivered the goods in LA.

Day, ruined

We've all heard F1 drivers get tetchy over the radio at engineers interrupting their concentration, but imagine how much worse it must be to find yourself halfway through that crucial email, deep in thought, when...

Fresh from his starring role

You may remember him from such films as 'Lock, Stock and two smoking tyres' and 'Flight of the Valtteri' and it seems Hollywood has finally rewarded Bottas with a spot on the Walk of Fame.

Into the stratosphere and beyond

F1 regularly hits new heights of technology, so it was a natural fit to send the Toro Rosso boys to NASA to check out some alternative cutting-edge machinery.

Saddle up

It may not have always been a pleasure to drive the Haas VF-19 this season, but you can bet it was pure joy for Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen to get behind the wheel of this beauty...

I like to move it, move it

You can always count on the Honey badger to not take life too seriously...

Call me Flash

Flash Gordon, Lord Flashheart, The Flash? No, no - Romain Grosjean's helmet design for Austin was inspired by Lightning McQueen of Cars fame, also known as Flash McQueen en francais...

Giddy up cowboy!

Looks like the inspiration for Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo, meanwhile, was all local - Austin being the home of the Texas Longhorns in particular, and cowboys in general. Danny Ricc, of course, then took his homage one step further...

Taking the bull by the horns

As if battling the two Bulls out on track wasn't hard enough, Ricciardo didn't come off well in this off-track encounter either...

The horror, the horror!

The look on Guenther Steiner's face when he saw that Romain Grosjean had crashed in FP2 and wrecked Haas's latest upgraded front wing...

Call that scary?

The look on Pierre Gasly's face when he asked Daniil Kvyat who was the inspiration for his pumpkin, and got the reply "Dr. Helmut Marko"...

From four wheels to two

The Toro Rosso boys look suitably impressed with the skills on show, and of course since there were wheels involved, decided to join in. Safe to say, they should probably stick to the day job...

Meeting your idols

They say you should never do it, but these two don't seem disappointed...

Formula Pun

There was no way Haas could let this fan's work of creative genius go unrewarded...

Celebrity celebrations

A Texan native and a graduate of UT Austin, who better to congratulate Lewis Hamilton on his title-clinching COTA drive than Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey...
