2014 Brazilian Grand Prix Sunday in Tweets

2014 Brazilian Grand Prix

Three-times world champion Nelson Piquet conducted one of the more unusual podium ceremonies in Brazil, choosing to ask championship leader Lewis Hamilton about his girlfriend rather than the race.

However of more interest to the crowd was a podium appereance by home favourite Felipe Massa, despite an earlier gaffe when he pulled into the wrong pit box.

Here’s the Twitter story of Sunday at the Brazilian Grand Prix.


Valtteri Bottas strapped into his car before the race. The seat belts later caused him some problems as he needed assistance during his second pit stop.

There had been a chance rain would affect the race, but it never arrived on what turned out to be a sunny Sunday.


Lewis Hamilton had a spin at Interlagos’ turn four, the corner he’s all too familiar with after his 2007 and 2013 adventures.

Massa became the fourth driver in five years to go to another team’s pit box.

Podium, pits and paddock

Sebastian Vettel lost two places on lap one. He was cautious because of a previous incident that nearly cost him the 2012 championship.

Romain Grosjean posted his third consecutive retirement from the Brazilian Grand Prix.

    @keithcollantine Gotta love the conspiracies, right? ;)

  2. I liked the Podium interview. The Podium is not a good place for serious questions and the drivers rarely give straight answers anyway.

    Piquet was entertaining in his own way as he always is.

    1. I agree. And that “kiss” between Piquet and Lauda was epic ! :D

  3. I always find the podium interviews cringeworthy so I make a point of turning the TV off as soon as the race ends now. I understand it’s more something for the fans at the circuit but I doubt that many can hear it anyway.

    1. @george I do that too. We don’t get to see the actual press conference afterwards anyway and the French TV just speaks all over the interviews to translate everything from English, and I don’t speak French.

  4. Oh, and I love Lotus’ self deprecating humour with regards to Grosjean’s retirement :D

  5. That exchange of words between Rosberg and Massa in press confrence was really hilarious :D

    And the lotus tweet as well :))

    The photo of Piquet is toe-curling, everyone in it (other than NP) looks appalled at his crassness.

  7. imagine if there was no tarmac runoff where Hamilton spun, and gravel like in past years…. rosberg would be leading the championship by 1 point.

  8. Good for Masa’s confidence,
