UPDATE: Dickbutt Meme in UPS Logo Put on Ferrari F1 car for China GP: What?

Formula 1 is boring. But we wouldn't mind seeing Kimi Raikkonen driving the Ferrari car to victory during this week's China GP. After all, he is the man who said "Yeah, I was having a s#&t" when asked by Martin Brundle why he missed a presentation.

But I doubt even he will be amused by the fact that the famous Dickbutt meme has found its way onto the Ferrari SF15-T race car before this weekend's race.

So apparently, UPS organized a competition where fan photos would be integrated into their logo, which was fitted to a the race cars. But instead of a photo, somebody submitted a meme.

It's minuscule, but you can clearly see it in these close-ups provided to us by Reddit user PHOCION. Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel have already been made part of a photo session where they hold up the trolled logo, and it has been placed on the car sponsored by UPS.

The bad news is that after everybody finds out about this funny story, Ferrari are likely going to fix it. But the fact that Dickbutt is on a Ferrari will be forever remembered.

We wonder what Canadian DJ Deadmau5 would think if he knew. After all, Ferrari forced him to remove the famous Purrari wrap and logos from the 458 Spider supercar he used in the Gumball 3000. Base on the fact that he bought two McLarens after that, I think it's clear that he wasn't very happy with the Italians.

Update: UPS has learned of the dickbutt and took the image down from its Facebook page. Here is the apology they released:

"Thank you to our social community for bringing to our attention the inappropriate image that was submitted to our special version of the UPS shield. We have since recreated the mosaic and can ensure that all other photos will still appear on the Ferrari car this weekend."
