    “Fernando, your eyebrows have yet to arrive.”

    Montoya was confident he would have the most promising career of the group, as he had signed with a Championship winning team.

    Er.. Fernanado Where is your cap …??

    FA : It’s there .. It’s just that you can’t see it :)

  4. “Goes to show, a big smile will get you no where in F1″

  5. The cast for the international version of the Inbetweeners…before it got scrapped and stayed British.

  6. Alonso: Did you see Nelson Piquet’s son running around….he’s so irritating. Hope I don’t see him again.

    Montoya: My psychic told me by time those words become ironic, I won’t even be in F1.

    Bernoldi: If there’s one thing I want from F1, it’s to make Coulthard angry.

    Raikkonen: Just take the photo, I need my nap.

    EB: I have the most sponsors, so i’m the best.

  9. Alonso : How in the hell is Juan going to be able to fit in the car!?…

  10. Drivers feared Montoya would be quick off the blocks, so they asked Michael Schumacher, complete with a Yellow missile, to ‘sort it out’

  11. The driver’s superhero names, from left to right:
    The Iceman
    Deer Boy
    The Spanish Samurai
    Free minutes when you top-up man

  12. Bernoldi didn’t care about the wins, he was th only one going to see the new Harry Potter film, Black Sunday’s, Orange Wednesdays…

    Bernoldi:”The future’s bright, the future’s…just orange for me…”

    “I think that’s Bernoldi who is the most promising of these young men.” Helmut Marko (2001)

    Bernoldi feeling a “little” intimidated by the others,
    compensates with a big smile.
