Several teams have made significant changes to their cars as they enter the weekend of the Spanish Grand Prix, but Aston Martin has seen headlines for only one reason: the upgrades they brought make the AMR22 look very much like a Red Bull.
Both Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel have been running this upgrade during the first day of practice in Barcelona with the hopes that it will propel them further up the grid after a difficult season so far. But after FP1, Red Bull posted a hilarious tweet in reference to this.
Inbetween session refreshment, anyone? 💚 pic.twitter.com/6WMAlmcwZJ

With a photo of a green version of a Red Bull can, the social guy behind the brilliant Red Bull F1 Twitter account jokes about the similarities of the Aston Martin car.
Obviously, this is a reference to Aston Martin, especially with the can being green, too.
To only add to the hilarity, Williams has posted a brilliant tweet, too as Nyck de Vies finishes his FP1 in the Williams F1 car.
Big Nyck energy 👌

“Big Nyck energy,” they write. I hope I don’t have to explain the joke here.
FP2 is has 30 minutes left as I type ,with Max Verstappen currently at the top of the time sheet ahead of Vettel, Perez, Sainz, and Leclerc. Early days.
