Some F1 drivers tweet A LOT but never before have we seen a tweet from the cockpit in a race. That’s what NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski did during the famous Daytona 500 race. He tweeted this image above of his view of a fire during a red flag period.
The tweet went viral and gained him a massive 100,000 followers that night, better still, he was even replying to his fans! He later crashed out the race, hopefully it wasn’t due to tweeting and driving.
