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."
Watch Marco's tit-for-tat response to Checo in this funny clip.
