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

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..

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

Obrigado pelo excelente trabalho em conjunto com os pilotos portugueses no carro N5

Bloody awesome! Redbull screwed up lol had to laugh at the guys who replaced you having such a fail in Melbourne! You're a champion in so many ways.

Shot Bro - well done to you - great bounce back from last year - Old Pierre couldn’t get past a Torro Rosso in a Red Bull - surely a wry smile !

Nice see red bull still back you because you are a top racer

Awesome! Great job as always. Hold you head up high.

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

Fantastic results this weekend Brendon! Awesome work!

Congratulations Brendon - fabulous start to 2019

Welcome Brendon , #5 All the Way !! πŸŽπŸ’¨πŸπŸ’ͺπŸ‘ŠπŸ˜Ž

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

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.

Go go Brendon πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ”₯🏁

Great result, back to the podium

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🏽

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

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

Good luck Brendon

Your the man Brendon

Brendon Robinson

whats the TQ like in that Caddie?

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

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

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

Hey Brendon Hartley Great Greetings from Germany, What is your next plan for your Career? Could Formula E be an option for you?

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

Great to see

Awesome racing suit, good luck at Sebring!

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

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

Looking forward to a result.

Is action express a permanent position?

Good stuff, get in there !! πŸ‘

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

Awesome news Brendon. Wishing you the best of everything πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

Good stuff...You were shafted and deserve a seat more than a few. Shame a parent couldn't buy a team for you...😜

Enjoy the year Brendan- hope these companies all look after you and appreciate your skills.

WEC drive great news, will keep you 'racing fit', and your SIM work with Ferrari & FE Porsche will be invaluable to them.

Well done Brendon. You can't keep a good bloke and driver down for long. All the best for 2019. Hopefully you will be back in a full time race seat soon πŸ‘

Massive congrats Brendon :) great to see you be a Ferrari test driver :D

Good to know that you’re in the company of people who appreciate and respects your worth

I am glad to hear this and hope I will see you in Le Mans.

I’m a diehard Lewis fan but I kept my eye out for you last year because you were like a real underdog. Hopefully this is a chance to see you back in F1 with Haas or Alfa in the future

Wicked well done Cruz and good luck for the new season ahead of you bring on 2019

Well done, congrats on that πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ

Show them Kiwis really can fly

Great news!! Congratulations! I hope that this year you’re given the support, respect and appreciation that you deserve!

Good job mate but I’m sorry for Jenson 😒

All the best Brendon πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

Busy season ! All the best and Good Luck this year my friend!

That’s brilliant! You rock!!

Good man brendon happy for you,

You sound almost as busy as me 🀣🀣🀣 looking forward to supporting you in the WEC races 😘

Great news. Wishing you well.

I’m happy to see you race again! πŸ˜ƒ

Great news Brendon, very glad to hear this, I understand you, F1 is an achievement who every driver wants to achieve, but WEC, FE, Blancpain Endurance Series, IMSA needs you, donΒ΄t feel shame about the Toro Roso dismissed you, you do not need F1 to prove you valor, you drove like a hell with Porsche Team, you won Le Mans, you won WEC championship against your Porsche mates, Audi and Toyota, keep going pal, next year, I will very proud to meet you at 6 Hours of SΓ£o Paulo, at Interlagos.

All the best mate for the future. πŸ‘πŸ‘

All in all it sounds as if you have an incredible year ahead. Brilliant you have work with both prancing horse brands. Do you have enough parking for your β€˜company’ cars? Choosing which to take today ... the Ferrari or the Porsche! Not a decision many get to make. Enjoy!

Not a bad Gig if you can handle that!! All the best πŸ‘
