I drove my heart out today, but still don’t know what to say. Finishing second in this race is a great result but it should have been a victory. Thanks to the team for the great car and strategy. Thanks for the support to all the fans, we’ll be back stronger next year #BrazilGP 🇧🇷

Still happy to have finished P5, after being rear-ended. It’s a shame we didn’t score the result we deserved, because we had the right pace and we had a good race! #KeepPushing #F1007 #BritishGP 🇬🇧 ... See moreSee less

Amazing result considering! You gave us the best of races today. Driver of the day in my eyes

Max, we are proud of you! Not only did you manage to keep the car rolling in the gravel, but took it to a fabulous fifth when it was limping. In your Interview you showed greatness! Your fight wit Charles was outstanding from both of you. Last year you grew up almost suddenly and I just wished Sebastian would give it a thought and follow you! It is refreshing to see the young generation driving, you are making this sport great again! Keep on going lads! 👍👏👏👏

Well done Max! You and Charles are awesome. The best drivers on the grid...

You handled it with such amazing professionalism. You are the best driver in F1, by skill and by attitude. Well done.

It was an awesome race in which you fought really hard, but fair with Leclerc. It’s a shame that you were launched of the track and it’s amazing that you got back on track and could continue the race. I wished there was more in it for you, but looking at the circumstances you did a great job ending on the 5th place! #KeepPushing Max 🦁👊🏼

For us, you are the best driver of the day. Awesome job Max #33

Great attitude following that incident, I don't think I would have remained so diplomatic. Fantastic achievement getting back on the road and staying in the points

Amazing race Max we are very proud of you I'am a little bit disapoint that you not standing on that podium but that's pure racing

The battle with Leclerc today needed an Oscar prize for "Best Action".

As always you made this sport exciting. You're a sponsor's, and Liberty Media's, dream. It won't always be this hard for you Max - but while it is, you're going to continue to provide some of the best on track action we've seen in decades. The camera loves you. The fans love you. Other drivers fear you. Keep doing what you do. The world is watching - and often missing their mouth with popcorn. 🍿👀😂 The future's bright. The future's orange. P. S. I'm pretty sure Eddie Jordan, on British Channel 4, suggested today that if (when?) you go to Mercedes that Lewis will run away from the fight to Ferrari! Maybe I'm reading too much into it but....

Fantastic driving as ever- great to see you finish considering the gravel patch! Thank you ☺️!!!

You and Leclerc put on an amazing race. You’re both fantastic racers!

😘👍🏻🏎🙌🏻You are the best ! Keep doing what you are doing. Looking so forward to seeing you at the next race ! 😍🧡🧡🧡🏁

You're an amazing driver! You made my day #MadMax 👌😊🍀

Great battle Max. Love your determination. Keep up the good work.

You did your best. It was still really good! Thanks for the emotion!!!!!!!

Awesome job! Great fight! At least it didn’t put you out of the race.

Awesome race Max, I’ve been watching F1 since the 80’s and it’s good to see the future is bright and exciting with you and Charles for the future!👍👍

Great work today Max!! So many great battles. F1 needed this race! 😃

Impressed you managed to get the car back on track. Well done

It was the second most interesting race this year I.M.H.O., thanks to you Max! I'm very sorry for the accident with Vettel. But! Keep pushing!!! I'm as excited to see you racing as I was back then, when Schumacher was racing (and beating) Senna! Make me love F1 again! Pushpushpush! You're the best! ;)

Great work from the team to build you a tank, I was amazed the car survived that shunt

Very good result and very good adult comment after the race! Proud!

LOVED the race!! So much going on and the Red Bulls were both competing, equal to the Ferraris! THANK YOU!! (Y) 😊 <3
