Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg are the stars of this week’s Caption Competition.

  1. This one is actually a Mercedes advert, it goes…

    Nico: “My lack of wins is killing me”
    Michael: “And I, I must confess, I still believe”
    Both turn to the camera: “Still believe!”

    23 minutes and 43 seconds in and it was still stalemate in the annual Mercedes staring competition

    I usually have a good laugh reading these, but have to say none have made me laugh. Maybe the picture isn’t so good.

    Hey Britney, how about letting me by this season, like my old Ferrari teammates had to during the good old day’s.
    Norbert said I don’t have to coz you’re not as fast as you used to be!

  9. After a mis-translation regarding the “launch” of the car neither Mercedes driver was willing to volunteer!

    You said we’d just have to put a brave face on it, so I’m copying you.

    ‘All I am asking for is a bit of respect sonny. After all I was winning races while you were still in nappies and stand to attention when you talk to me’.

    ‘Ja Herr Schumacher, das ich tadellos verstehe und befolgen werde’.

    We have a chance of a top podium this year? Do you remember the words to the anthem? Me neither……
