Earlier this week, we reported how German F1 fans were making the most of a €77 price cut in tickets for next weekend’s German Grand Prix at Hockenheim after the race organizers offered a €11 discount for every goal that the team scored.
Germany’s 7-1 demolition of Brazil in the semi-finals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup came as a shock to the footballing world, but a number of German drivers are also making the most of the success to tease their Brazilian rivals.
Former F1 driver Timo Glock is now racing in the German DTM series with car #17, so why not make the most of the 7-1 win by placing a Brazilian and German flag on either side?

Fellow BMW racer Augusto Farfus was the target of his mockery, but he was a good sport and even donned a pair of German sunglasses for this picture.
Sebastian Vettel also spoke about the victory at Silverstone, saying: “Obviously very proud of how they played and of the result. Obviously it was more dominant than everyone was expected, but for the final, whoever we meet, it will be tight so as a fan I’m cheering and rooting for Germany!”.
Let’s just hope for Glock’s sake that Neuer and co. can find a way past Argentina on Sunday night…
