Apr.22 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Will Stevens has deleted a tweet described as “ugly” by one well-known Spanish sports daily.

After Bahrain, Briton Stevens highlighted the significant gap between his race finishing time and that of his Manor teammate, fellow rookie Roberto Merhi.

“Really good race pace today,” Stevens’ ‘tweet’ read, “car felt good and got into a really nice rhythm. I won our own little race again.”

Stevens concluded his tweet with the hashtag ‘#44seconds’, which was the gap between his finishing time and that of Spaniard Merhi’s in the sister car.

The tweet was roundly criticised by Merhi’s mainly Spanish supporters, and Stevens duly deleted it.
