US Grand Prix 2015 Press Conference

F1 is a serious, physically taxing sport that requires immense endurance – both physical and mental, and drivers are often drained at the end of the race. It’s impossible to judge an entire personality on track (although team radio helps sometimes!) – but drivers show their humorous sides at the drivers’ conferences that precede the race weekend.

4-time world champion Sebastian Vettel is famous for another thing – his sense of humour! The German wunderkind often makes wisecracks on and off the the track, and is hilarious during press conferences. But he isn’t the only one.

#1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, 2014

Previous Slide 1 / 5

 

This was a funny press conference all round.. but the really special bit comes at the 5 minute mark. A special question from a strongly-accented German interviewer, addressed to Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg, talks all about buttons – and not the Jenson kind. It goes on a while.

Fernando Alonso, front and centre, does not even make an effort to hide his complete amusement, laughing openly next to the actual Button, who has his lips firmly pursed together as Nico Hulkenberg smiles openly in the background next to Lewis Hamilton, who is ‘scratching his face’ to hide his laughter.

Unmoved? Nico Rosberg.
