Missed out on Q2 by 2 hundredths of a second, little annoying but that’s how it goes.. I also turned 29 today which too was a little annoying πŸ˜… but thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes and STR for the cake πŸŽ‚ Starting from P16. Will do my best πŸ‘Š

Press conference and track walk yesterday. Keeping it real and remaining focused on the stuff I can control. Another drivers favourite here in São Paulo, circuit is so good!

Not the outcome we wanted but plenty to be positive about. Tyres were ruined after big locking on lap one and was forced to pit. It compromised the race but we fought back and showed very good speed. I later had contact with Ocon which caused damage and a penalty (which I thought was a little harsh). Without the contact I was fighting for 9th position which was a great recovery. Had great pace all weekend and should have converted, that’s racing. I’m pumped up, I’m fighting and I’m looking forward to the last couple of races. Congrats to Lewis for the Championship and RBR for the race win πŸ‘

Nailed Q1 and finished up P10. I had one set of new boots and one lap to get the job done in Q2, I could give you some lame excuses but ultimately it was a mistake in the last sector which cost us a chance to go through to Q3. We will line up p14 for tomorrow’s GP. Car has been hooked up all weekend. Targeting points πŸ‘ πŸ‘Š

I was back in Porsche kit this week ☺️
It’s been a fun first experience driving the FE car in anger but it’s been equally as enjoyable working with the many familiar and cleaver peeps in the @porsche.formulae team.

You've already reached the peaks of WEC I don't see much point in going back to that especially when it's now a 2-car race. Take on the FE challenge instead. NZers can actually watch FE as well!

Fred Hamlett

Who needs to drive for f1 after driving that beast of an electric car

Great work Brendan

Wow well done brendon, so happy for you, formula e is amazing, so exciting, the series so exciting, cars are amazing, love the colours, so vibrant, well done brendon, so happy for you, best of luck with everything, Ann @ireland

Great that you are joining FE!! Looking forward to another Porsche adventure.. Just a little gutted not to see you in Spa..

Maxim Debbaut

Best of luck Brendon, I’m sure where ever you decide to go you’ll be great, we look forward to your next chapter πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

You would be a great addition to the Formula E circuit. Equally it would be great to see you back in WEC with Toyota (if the rumours are to be believed). Either way I hope we see you back racing soon Brendon πŸ‘

Excellent news, All the best.

Great to see you back behind the wheel.

Great to see you back being appreciated

Great stuff Brendan, be good to see you in a Toyota though.

welcome back mate~!

Mate, though I’ll miss seeing you on the F1 grid, your racing career has come full circle. To be honest, Formula E is where it’s at these days and it’ll be good to hone your skills in a series full of familiar faces and equally competitive skill and machinery. I wish you the best.

Miss seeing you race every fortnight in f1 but glad your having fun in other aspects of your racing :D

The car in black looks amazing..hope to see you racing in this car racing soon.. next step for Porsche is going back to F1 in 2021?? New regulations, more teams

Thatβ€˜s bad The FE is for Pilots who gave up their career

good luck Brandon!!!!

Can’t wait to see you in FE!

So nice to see you wearing the Porsche colors again! I can't wait to see where this new journey takes you. Exciting!!

Racers have to race!

Please get back in the sim and sort out the SF90. The Italians need your development skills. Follow in the footsteps of Chris Amon.

Tron? The rear wing looks pretty out there! Go hard mate

20 hours of racing, 2 Sebring podiums! A big thanks to all involved at SMP Racing and Action Express Racing. It was a tough challenge to combine 2 races and different cars, but both teams and sets of team mates made it an incredible and fun weekend, cheers!
I need some sleep..

If anyone can do it it’s You! Congrats

We hope that the rumors are true about Toyota LMP 1, you are always deserving! Great luck!

2019 Brendon Hartley 2x podiums , Pierre Gasley 0 πŸ‘

Superb effort B, both podiums were well deserved.

Hi Brendon, don't know if you'll see this comment but it's ok. I have something to report to you. In the Netflix Formula One series "Drive to survive", in the 8th episode at 16 minutes 40 seconds, they talk quickly about a fight from Ericsson at Spa, with a Toro Rosso driver. They said that the driver of the Tori Rosso is Gasly, but I think it's actually you. This mistake hurted me a bit and made me feel pretty bad at the moment. But still hope you to return in Formula One one day, but the most important is to be happy.

You did an amazing job! It was so cool to see you back in endurance racing! Such a great performance. Congratulations and enjoy a deserved rest!! 😁

Well done Brendon x

Class, bloody awesome!😎😎😎

Awesome well done.

Fantastic results

Excellent weekend

Great job Brendon. This just confirms what, we your fans already know, a great driver you are. Go and get some much needed sleep. Top job πŸ‘

CONGRATULATIONS Brendon Hartley. Was awesome to see you back on the podium ;-) Have a GREAT 2019 season πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€

Good job , now you can sort out Ferrari's cars for them😁

must feel like home being back in Endurance. Well done

Well done Brendon

Congratulations Brendon - fabulous start to 2019

Good luck this weekend Brendon. You are a Top driver πŸ‘

Go go Brendon πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ”₯🏁

Good luck Brendon...πŸ‘πŸ€βœŠβœŠβœŠβœŠ

whats the TQ like in that Caddie?

Missed seeing you in the mix in F1's first practice just now. I hope you get another chance in F1, you so deserve it. πŸ’ͺ🏽

Awesome racing suit, good luck at Sebring!

Hang in there...long weekend a head! Good luck in both races...πŸ’ͺ🏼

…...drive the new car like you put on your new suit Brendon Hartley, one leg at a time...….

Your the man Brendon

Brendon Robinson

Looking forward to a result.

I personally think your year in F1 has enhanced your career not damaged it at all. People and race teams realize what a great development engineer you are as well as driver and you were given a rough deal. Your a massive asset to any race team.

Better than nothing or racing for Toro Roso / Red Bull...

How hard is it to name the right sponsors in interviews though? Can’t be easy.

Great to see

Heard you've got a little Formula E testing coming up... Hope we see you out there full time soon in a Porsche suit!

Sounds good. Just hope you don’t need to finds Phone Booth like the other Superman!

Wish you were still in F1 Brendon. Not the same without one of my countrymen on the grid

Good luck for the weekend

Is action express a permanent position?

Keep it up mate. We're backing you 100%
