Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke surprises F1 drivers as fans call on her to ‘lend Ferrari a few dragons’

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 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.

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.
