Caption Competition 13: Bernie and Sir Frank

Caption Competition

Frank Williams, Bernie Ecclestone, Barcelona, 2012

It was a dramatic weekend for Sir Frank Williams in Barcelona.

Pastor Maldonado scored Williams’ first win in eight years – but all at the team were fortunate to escape a fire which broke out in their garage after the race.

Before all that there were belated birthday celebrations for the team’s founder, who turned 70 in April.

Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone was among those who joined in the party. What did he have to say to Sir Frank? That’s up to you to decide in today’s Caption Competition.

Post your suggest for a funny caption in the comments. A selection of the best will be featured in the daily round-up.

    Frank Williams – “Any chance we can get on the board for the flotation Bernie?”
    Bernie Eccleston – “I know it’s your birthday Frank, but I’m not giving you that big a present”.

    When you turn 70, microphones are needed for anyone trying to talk to you.

    Bernie: So it turns out that Frank had chilli for lunch and the fire was caused by a stray fart.

  4. Bernie: Bring out the 70 candle birthday cake from the garage!

    Bernie: And the next thing I knew, Frank was rolling down the hill with Compo and Nora Batty running behind him, and Ken Tyrrel slinking off into the bushes with that dolled up blonde bird.

    Bernie ‘Frank, you’ll love this one… It’s called Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash…’

    Bernie: Our investigation has shown that the heat from 70 candles CAN start an F1 car.

    Frank: hehe
