The first Sprint weekend of the season in Baku was thoroughly entertaining on the track, but the teams also did their best to keep us amused off it. So, in case you missed it, here is a run down of the best of social media from the Azerbaijan Grand Prix weekend.

Hamilton and Russell go back and forth

We did see Lewis Hamilton and George Russell go wheel to wheel on track in Sunday’s Grand Prix but, ahead of the race, they also did battle off the track, with a game of table tennis on Thursday night. Someone better ask them in Miami who won.

Sargeant's struggles

Formula 1 has often been the pillar of technology and the drivers are 20 of the best in the world at operating these insane machines. But sometimes they struggle with the little things, like Logan Sargeant trying to put on headphones.

Vasseur the cake menace

There were a couple of birthdays at Ferrari over the Baku race weekend, and the Scuderia celebrated in style with some cake. Clearly if you are about to blow out your candles at Ferrari, make sure Frederic Vasseur is nowhere near.

Perez's new career

It was quite the weekend for Perez, as not only did he win both the Sprint and Sunday’s Grand Prix, but he also made his modelling debut. We think he looks good.

There's something on your face

There is something different about Perez and Verstappen in this picture but we cannot tell exactly what it is. Did they dye their hair? Maybe you guys can tell what it is.

Lewis the night owl

This weekend taught us that even a seven-time world champion is no different to the rest of us. Like many, Hamilton also spends time on his phone when he should be working.
