Lewis Hamilton, Daniel Ricciardo, Silverstone, 2014Silverstone was turned pink on Sunday in memory of Jenson Button’s late father John as thousands of fans turned up in special T-shirts to commemorate him and raise money for the Henry Surtees Foundation.

When the chequered flag fell Lewis Hamilton gave the crowd a home victory to savour. But on winning the British Grand Prix for a second time he was unimpressed to be presented with a tacky sponsor’s trophy instead of the distinctive and traditional RAC trophy.

Here’s a selection of Sunday’s best Tweets at the British Grand Prix.

Build-up

There were pink shirts all around to remember John Button, who passed away in January.

The race was red-flagged for an hour as Kimi Raikkonen’s first-lap shunt left the marshals and track stewards scrambling to repair barriers.

Fernando Alonso overshot his starting position in the other Ferrari, eventually receiving a five second penalty.

After the chequered flag

Felipe Massa’s 200th Grand Prix was a big disappointment.
