Cesaro Makes History At Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix (Videos & Photos)


Cesaro had some fun this weekend.

The Swiss Cyborg appeared as the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya to make history as the first non-Formula 1 personality to present the Pirelli Pole Position Award to Valtteri Bottas.

Bottas was the fastest-qualifying driver at Saturday's event with a time of 1:15:406.

Cesaro presents Pirelli Pole Position Award at Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix

Anyone who has ever watched Cesaro in the ring can easily see that he’s driven by success. This weekend, however, The Swiss Cyborg switched gears, taking in the sights of Barcelona and participating in a weekend of activities at the world-famous Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix – activities that included being the first non-Formula 1 personality to present the Pirelli Pole Position award.

From the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Cesaro presented the prestigious award to Valtteri Bottas, who was Saturday’s fastest-qualifying driver with a time of 1:15.406.

Cesaro will remain in Barcelona to watch Sunday’s race before joining WWE’s tour through the United Kingdom and Europe. (Had the qualifying race occurred a day or two earlier, he and the Finland-born Bottas could have celebrated the victory at WWE's Live Event in Helsinki Friday night.)
