Caption Competition

Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes, Brackley, 2013

Mercedes were in the headlines this week for reasons other than Lewis Hamilton’s first public appearance for the team.

The surprise hiring of Toto Wolff from Williams was followed by speculation that he had lured Paddy Lowe from McLaren to join him and that team principal Ross Brawn would have to make way.

While all this was going on Hamilton was checking out his new team. What did he make of them? That’s for you to decide in the latest Caption Competition.

    The tyre degradation issues at Mercedes are worse than Lewis ever imagined.

    Driving the wheels of this car must be hard when there’s… no wheels on it.

    “Guys, you really think that painting rainbow-colored unicorns on the rear end will give us extra downforce?”

    I know that the car eats through too much of the tyres but………..

    I hope they have enough money to assemble the rest of the car after my fat pay cheque!

    Ross Brawn: “And if you need to do a clutch start, we repurposed the double-DRS vents as handles for the mechanics to grab onto to give you a push.”

    Leiws Hamilton: “Yeah, but what at the chances that I’ll need to do that?”

    Ross Brawn: “High.”

    Upon closer inspection of their car, Lewis realised that Mercedes definitely have the brains. The question is, do they have the Brawn?

    “I’ve been alone with the car for twenty minutes. Why hasn’t Professor M come running? He’s usually so aware of these things.”

    Hamiltona: “This Mercedes is more suitable for donuts!”

    “Is this what the boys at McLaren meant when they said I should get used to looking at the back of a car with a Mercedes engine in it?”

  15. This is why you don’t leave the car sitting outside in Liverpool…
