Cape Town - As the rain caused a halt in Formula One testing at Silverstone, the Renault F1 team and rivals Force India became involved in some humourous Twitter banter.

It all started with an innocent enough tweet from Renault, detailing their work through the lunch session.

Force India quickly seized their chance to post a quirky reply.

It took some time, but Renault had a reply for their rivals.

Force India fired back a quick reply.

And then some fans got involved, siding with Force India for their speedy replies.

Renault had a reason for their tardiness, however.

Needless to say, the the fans really enjoyed it.

For the record, Fernando Alonso of McLaren posted the fastest time during testing.
