The Banter Between These F3 Drivers Is Incredible

Felix Rosenqvist, Antonio Felix da Costa and Dani Juncadella have won four of the last five Macau Grands Prix, and all three will be competing once again in 2016. The trio have raced together in a variety of championships over the last few years and have a healthy rivalry and friendship, and in the run up to the event they’ve been trying to psych each other out.

2014 and ’15 Macau winner Rosenqvist seemed to fire the first shots with this tough poll:

That was always going to go one way, but being put in the same category as Maldonado is insult enough!

2011 winner Juncadella enjoyed it though:

Things went quiet for a little while, but a couple of weeks later da Costa (who won in 2012) was confirmed for the race, and that’s when things ramped up.

A couple of test days were organised at the Red Bull Ring for the three drivers, and it looks like they had some fun…

Juncadella gave as good as he got:

Da Costa gave Rosenqvist a ‘wave’ when the Swede went off:

And of course Rosenqvist ‘waved’ back:

Formula E driver Daniel Abt felt left out:

The test came to an end, but the banter did not. First there was this innocuous photo from a press conference:

Alex Lynn knows he’s missing out:

Meanwhile, Dani Juncadella unleashed a devastating blow towards Felix Rosenqvist:

Ouch. Rosenqvist fought back immediately:

Good, but not good enough, and Felix knew it. He had to go deeper.

Casually bringing up an incident that happened four years ago? Damn, racing drivers never forget!

It was Dani that had the ominous last words…for now:

Three drivers from three different countries having a hilarious bit of back-and-forth on Twitter as they prepare for one of the biggest races of the year? THIS is what social media is all about!

The 2016 Macau GP takes place on the 20th of November. All eyes on these guys!
