Caption Competition 25: The Schumachers

Caption Competition

Michael Schumacher, Ralf Schumacher, 2001

The Caption Competition is back for the off-season and will have a slightly retro flavour while we wait for the new season to begin.

The first offering takes inspiration from Sniff Petrol’s hilarious series The Schumachers.

It’s up to you to decide what Michael and Ralf were discussing over cake in this picture from 2001. Post your funniest suggestion in the comments and look out for my pick of the best in tomorrow’s round-up.

    “Let’s celebrate! There are now TWO bad drivers in the family!”

  2. “You always were the greedy one Ralf!”

    Ralf was driving the best he ever had by this point, so michael had to do something to slow his quickening brother down and remain the top schumacher. It was in this moment michael discovered ralf’s kryptonite….

    MS:I have always wondered why you’re called Ralf and not Half.

    msc: what really ****** me off is in 3-4 years there’ll be a blond finn going around with an ice cream in this same t-shirt, and everybody will talk about that, instead of me eating this cake with you.
    rsc: mmm…

    MSC: Is that the only thing you’re faster at than me?

    Michael: what’s the occasion for the cake?

    Ralf: I need to make minimum racing weight.

    Michael: I don’t remember Montoya ever having that problem.

    Having announced sponsorship from Gregg’s the bakers, they took the chance to do some valuable PR work…

    Michael: “take a look at your big brother Ralf. Great hair, great tan, a proper shirt. And the photographer ain’t going to get a photo of me eating. And THAT is why I win, and you don’t.”

    That’s a trick I learned from Senna too: say your family is even faster than you! It gets them a job they wouldn’t normally get…

  13. Schumi: Easy on the cake, bro. Who are you trying to look like…Montoya?

  14. Angelo De Asa said on 5th January 2013, 15:57

    Michael: Why r we havin cake again Ralf?
    Ralf: I didn’t get any trophies…

    For the brothers Schumacher, cake was a prominent part of their careers at the time shown in this picture. For Michael, driving for Ferrari was very often a piece of cake. For Ralf, driving for Williams was very often done while eating cake.

    Michael: “I didn’t know that Bernie had such good baking skills”.

    enjoy the cake.
    Because this 2004 season it’s the only piece i am going to leave for the rest of the pack.

  18. vuelve kowalsky said on 5th January 2013, 17:32

    now you understand why i am such a *******. The cake tastes so good, that i don’t want anybody else to have a piece of it.

  19. vuelve kowalsky said on 5th January 2013, 17:39

    Here is the reason why michael dominated the early 2000’s.
    michael putting some extra weight on the closest competitor, to have the unfair advantage.
    As you can see he is not eating his piece, just fooling his younger brother into eating it.

    Michael: What do you mean, Mum and Dad are not giving us Christmas stockings next year???
