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'm glad to see you back in WEC, in LMP1, where you belong, but I wish it was in your old uniform, because I cannot, in clear conscience, support Toyota.

All the best Brendon, we hope all goes well for you

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.

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

Maxim Debbaut

Grande Brandon

Fred Hamlett

Roy Castien

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!

Das ist kein Rennauto.....schade..

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

🏎😘

Great work Brendan

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‘

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.

Grouse bro

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

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‘

welcome back mate~!

Total professional. Love your work.

Sounds like you might be back in an LMP1H next year Brendon?

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

Can’t wait to see you in FE!

Why in anger? :O

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

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.

Superb effort B, both podiums were well deserved.

Super Job congr gr aus Lippstadt

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

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!! 😁

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

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

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 !

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.

Grouse bro!

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

Class, bloody awesome!😎😎😎

Excellent weekend

Well done Brendon x

Awesome well done.

Fantastic results

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‘

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

Congrats... good to be back in a competitive car!

Fantastic results this weekend Brendon! Awesome work!

You are the best driver of endurance in the World

Congratulations! Have a great sleep (_ _).qoβ—‹

PERFECT JOB BRANDON✌🏻 I'am a Big Fan of you since you drife for Porsche and now you drive for SCUDERIA FERRARI tooπŸ˜˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Cool Beans Proud of you!

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

Busy bee! 🐝

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.

Good luck

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

Go go Brendon πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ”₯🏁

Enjoy!

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!

Good luck Brendon

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

Your the man Brendon

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