Fernando's 100th Formula One Podium


Back-to-back podiums.

A tense race, a rollercoaster of emotions and a second podium for the team in as many races – all captured on camera at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.


After a hard-fought race, Fernando came through to secure his 100th Formula One podium finish around the Jeddah Corniche Circuit. Hear from him, Lance and Team Principal Mike Krack as they look back on an eventful night.

From their top-five grid positions, both Fernando and Lance made up ground at the start of the Grand Prix. Fernando got a better launch than polesitter Sergio Perez and led the opening stages of the race. Lance pulled off a spectacular pass on Ferrari's Carlos Sainz to work his way into fourth.

Fernando lost the lead to Perez a few laps later, but was initially able to keep up with him. He later slipped back behind the second Red Bull of Max Verstappen as the race progressed, eventually securing third position in the race and becoming just the sixth driver in history to take a landmark 100 F1 podium finishes.

It was however a mixed bag for the team as Lance had to retire due to a mechanical problem in the early stages of the race after running so well in the early stages.
