“I’m happy with you here, Band, doing Formula One. Globolixo.”
The strong statement had a lot of repercussions on social networks and yielded a ‘response’ from the Rio de Janeiro news group through a humor board presented in the Tá na Área program, from SporTV, closed TV channel. In addition, the ‘bomb’ fired by Piquet generated an official statement by Band, recognizing the merits of the broadcaster for four decades of F1 coverage.
According to the Motorsport.com, Piquet’s statement was not well accepted by the top of the Band, since the controversy ended up competing with the merit of coverage in the F1 re-broadcast at the station.
At Grupo Globo, the humor scene of the Tá na Área program, the “F1 in 1 minute” that played with Band and the Piquet family, also did not go down very well internally, since the jokes were seen as meaningless or boring, besides making fun of the Band using F1.
The team of Motorsport.com he also found out that from the next race on, the subject of Globo will be forgotten by the Band, even because of the origin of a good part of the new team, who passed through the broadcaster who had F1 rights until last year.
