Caption Competition

Jenson Button, Gary Paffett, Brands Hatch, 2012

McLaren reserve driver Gary Paffett explains the finer points of handling a DTM Mercedes C-Class to Jenson Button.

The pair are pictured at Brands Hatch, where Paffett scored his second win from the first three races, giving him a 25-point lead in the championship from BMW’s Bruno Spengler.

Like Paffett, Button won the first round of his championship this year. But he has slipped back to seventh in the F1 points table.

It’s over to you to see who can supply the best caption for this picture.

A selection of the best will be featured in the daily round-up.

    Paffett: “A DTM cockpit has about this much more space than an F1 car.”
    Button: “Perfect for someone like Montoya.”

    “Calm down folks! I believe it’s called a …’goatee?!’. He’s having a rough time since Melbourne, go easy on him, we all know a goatee helps a man in time of crisis.”
