If you cast your mind back to last November’s Brazilian Grand Prix, you may recall the ‘Places Alonso Would Rather Be’ meme that took the internet by storm following the Spaniard’s deck-chair antics in qualifying.

Well 2016 has now produced the latest F1 meme: Felipe Massa’s unimpressed dad.

Luis Antonio Massa has been integral to Felipe’s career, appearing at the majority of his son’s F1 races with Sauber, Ferrari and Williams over the past 14 years.

During Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix, Massa found himself embroiled in a fierce battle for position with Sergio Perez, leading to a brave move from the Force India driver at Les Combes. The move paid off, demoting Massa into seventh place.

The world feed camera quickly cut to Massa’s dad, whose unimpressed face spoke volumes.

And then the internet took over.

Move aside McKayla Maroney. We’ve got a new ‘not impressed’ face in town.
