Sauber F1 Team: Tit for Tat - revenge by video

By on Thursday, August 23, 2012

In anticipation of possible rain during the Grand Prix of Belgium in Spa, the Sauber F1 Team and Checo's race engineer Marco Schüpbach played a special prank on Checo as a comeback to Sergio's joke towards the end of the 2011 Japanese Grand Prix.

After having started in 17th position, Sergio was in the points on 8th position when he sent a radio message to his race engineer in the final lap: "I have no more power, no power!" The despair on the pit stand was immense, but only for a short time. After crossing the finish line and securing the points, we could hear Checo on the team radio: "I was joking."

Now the Mexican is set for a taste of his own medicine, as Marco Schüpbach responds with a wind-up of his own. It centres on a special development for wet-weather races and was filmed using hidden cameras.
