When Bob Constanduros shouts “Champagneee” at the Podium Ceremony, the three drivers on the podium know it’s time. Time to let the Champagne flow, which they drink less and spray on each other more. Bob is the F1 track commentator with an experience of over 500 Grands Prix. That’s over 500 times he’s shouted the magic word, which the drivers follow obediently.

Moet & Chandon has replaced Carbon, which has been the official supplier since 2017. As per F1 sources, they have discontinued this season due to the pandemic situation. They, however, could be back for the 2021 season, as their contract runs until then. Their special 1.5-litre magnum bottles for F1 costs $3000. It is unclear how much the Moet F1 bottles cost.
