Taki Inoue jokes about Bottas spin: Even I wouldn't do that!

Valtteri Bottas' bizarre spin in the pit-lane got the whole of the F1 community talking on Friday, including former F1 driver - and fellow subject of ridicule - Taki Inoue.

Valtteri Bottas' spin in the pitlane during Friday Practice for the Styrian Grand Prix has been a hot topic of conversation on social media over the past 24 hours. A number of fans, journalists and former drivers have questioned Bottas' actions - including one Taki Inoue. The former Japanese driver was previously best known for being one of the worst F1 drivers in history, but today, he has gained a loyal following on Twitter for his unfiltered views on motorsport. Inoue was quick to poke fun at Bottas following the unfortunate spin, with the ex-racer also being no stranger to a gaff or two. Famously, the former Simtek driver was hit by a waiting ambulance in the 1995 season following a crash. Inoue's jibe at Bottas' expense can be seen in the post below.

Even Taki Inoue didn’t do this. He must be very tired mentally. https://t.co/JK3PTbag9C — Taki Inoue (@takiinoue) June 25, 2021
