ICYMI: Behind the scenes in Brazil


You can't be watching social media all the time, so let us help you catch up on some moments you may have missed over the Brazilian Grand Prix weekend...

How much is too much?

Forget four candles, four coffees is the way forward for an F1 driver - anyone think Valtteri Bottas might have a caffeine habit?

Showing his colours

It's no secret that Lewis Hamilton holds Ayrton Senna up as a hero, and he once again showed his love for the Brazilian great with a new helmet design for Sao Paulo...

Hands up who wants their title bonus

They've already proved how well they work together, having sealed another championship double this year. No surprise, then, to see the Mercedes mechanics pull together to sort out this minor drama in Brazil...


While most of the training groundwork is laid in the off-season, that doesn't mean that drivers can slack off in between races...

Cat-like reflexes

Whether it is catching a ball, or a snap of oversteer, reflexes are king in F1. Daniil Kvyat showed us how it's done...

There's another clown in town

They don't call F1 a circus for nothing. Daniel Ricciardo adds even more skills to his repetoire...

More than four candles...

Christian Horner has only celebrated his birthday twice on a qualifying day as Red Bull Team Principal - and both times, one of his drivers went on to take pole. As presents go, it beats bath salts.

M-Haas-ive fan

But Racing Point couldn't quite sting like a bee on race day. Nonetheless, this beauty was certainly eye-catching. Did it mistake those famously pink cars for a new strain of meadow flowers?

On the ball

McLaren set themselves up for another double points-scoring weekend with a visit from Brazilian footballing legend Dani Alves.

Sempre Senna

Twenty-five years after Brazil lost its favourite racing son, there was an emotional outpouring at Interlagos as Ayrton Senna was remembered, with his nephew Bruno Senna and F1 commentator Martin Brundle both getting behind the wheel of Senna's iconic McLaren MP4/4.

Smooth operator

Carlos Sainz enjoyed a memorable maiden top-three F1 finish at Interlagos – even if he missed out on the official podium ceremony, only inheriting P3 once Lewis Hamilton had been penalised. No matter though – the Spaniard still drew plenty of praise for his performance, not least from former McLaren driver Fernando Alonso, while his team made sure they celebrated their first podium since 2014 in style…
