Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke trolled over ‘polo neck trousers’ as she poses with F1 stars

FORMULA 1 FANS urged Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke to fire up Ferrari with some “dragons” as she met their racing duo at Silverstone.

Carlos Sainz was fifth and Ferrari team-mate Charles Leclerc 14th as Brit Lewis Hamilton romped to a record ninth triumph at his home Grand Prix.

And motorsport lovers joked that the Italian team needed help from the English actress – famed for her role in the drama ‘n dragons fantasy show.

One fan did troll Clarke for a floaty outfit with a curious belt buckle across her chest – likening it to “polo neck pants”.

But it was Ferrari’s performance that wore thin with many F1 fans.

One viewer posted: “Can she lend us some dragons to pull the Ferraris? The stallions are a bit slow…”

Clarke, whose film roles include Solo: A Star Wars Story, is best known for playing Daenerys Targaryen , one of the most popular characters in Game of Thrones.

And when F1 posted a clip of her meeting their team, some fans reckoned Spaniard Sainz – who Ferrari are replacing with Lewis Hamilton next season – looked close to awestruck.

One said: “Carlos looks hilarious” – while another claimed he was trying too hard to look “smooth”.

Other fans, however, were impressed by what they felt was a cool, calm exchange.

Most wins at te same GP

  • Lewis Hamilton (British Grand Prix) – 9
  • Michael Schumacher (French Grand Prix) – 8
  • Lewis Hamilton (Hungarian Grand Prix) – 8
  • Michael Schumacher (Canadian Grand Prix) – 7
  • Michael Schumacher (Imola Grand Prix) – 7
  • Lewis Hamilton (Canadian Grand Prix) – 6


One even admitted he would be nervous meeting Clarke, saying: “Good for them. I couldn’t utter a single word.”

Meanwhile, Sainz’s successor-to-be Hamilton was toasting his first win since December 2021.

“This means so much to me,” the 39-year-old told his Mercedes outfit on the radio.

And not totally dissimilar to Game of Thrones, team boss Toto Wolff described the triumph as a “fairytale” – albeit one for all the family!

Inside track on Hamilton's life

LEWIS HAMILTON has driven his way into pole position as Formula One's most prolific winner.

The British speedster lives life in the fast lane both on and off the track, with a string of high-profile romances and jet-set lifestyle.

Hamilton made his name at McLaren and Mercedes but stunned the racing world by signing a £100million deal to join Ferrari for next season.

His exploits have seen him rub shoulders with Hollywood icon Brad Pitt but Lew snubbed the chance to feature in Top Gun 2.

And fans can follow his fortunes on the latest season of Netflix’s smash hit Drive To Survive.

Hamilton’s talent saw him go from humble origins in Stevenage to boasting an £11m car collection.

He joined celeb dating app Raya after splitting from Brazilian beauty Juliana Nalu.

And his exes are said to include Rita Ora, Rihanna and Nicole Scherzinger.

Hamilton was embroiled in a bitter feud with Nico Rosberg but the pair buried the hatchet to sport £35k watches they were given for FREE.

He also shared high-profile battles with Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel.

But his most shocking showdown saw Max Verstappen handed the World Championship over him by a controversial safety car decision.

The Brit is chasing a record eighth world title – the first of which came in 2008 and has seen Felipe Masa sue F1 for £62m after a crash saw him miss out.
