    “Boys, twelve years from now, you’ll have three World Championships and an Indianapolis 500 win between you. You’ll have fifty-six race wins, fifty-one pole positions and will have scored over twelve hundred World Championship points. But only one of you will have dated Anna Kournikova.”

    All rise for the German and Italian national anthems.

    Kimi: “… so maybe deciding to sew my name onto my overalls after last night’s drinks wasn’t such a good idea.”

    “Juan, tell us about these giant earplugs you’re using.”
    Montoya: “What?”

    “… and from left to right, we have the emotional scale of a racing driver, and yes, that is Kimi’s happy face… Coincidentally it’s also his laughing face, angry face, boredom face, smug face, and his guilty face.”

    After much consideration they decided that Westlife needed an overhaul of members…

    Bernoldi’s future was not quite as bright as his race suit suggested…

    Achievements from left to right:
    19 wins-1 WDC, 11 wins-1 Indy 500 win, 30 wins-2 WDC, eeeeeeerrrrrr

    The planned casting for Reservoir Dogs, The Sequel goes awry when the directors decide to cast a Fernando Alonso as, Mr Black.

  15. sandy (@sandy) said on 12th January 2013, 11:14

    Montoya : I bet these two guys standing beside me won’t last long.Bernoldi should be fine though.

  16. “And Schumacher comes up to take the free kick…”

  17. Drop Valencia! said on 12th January 2013, 11:21

    …three of them clearly have the focus to be future race winners…. but this Alonso chap didn’t even remember his cap…

  18. JamieFranklinF1 (@jamiefranklinf1) said on 12th January 2013, 11:29

    Fantastic achievements from these young drivers. We have Kimi who has multiple wins and a World Champion. Juan Pablo Montoya, multiple race wins, including an Indianpolis 500 victory. Fernando Alonso, multiple race wins and a double World Champion. And last but not least Enrique Bernoldi, a man with 200 free extra minutes on his Orange phone contract.

  19. JamieFranklinF1 (@jamiefranklinf1) said on 12th January 2013, 11:31

    Red Bull: We have enough money to sponsor two new drivers this year. So we’ve gone with Kimi Raikkonen and Enrique Bernoldi. Juan Pablo Montoya and Fernando Alonso don’t look anything special to us.

    Rookie driver thoughts 2001 –

    JPM:Don’t touch me or I’ll kill you!
    FA: No drive next year, no prospects in Minardi, hope they see how big I am…
    EB: Who am I again?
