Caption Competition 28: Hamilton at Mercedes

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.

    A little confused after Ross Brawn had told him the W04 would need “treating with respect”, Lewis thought bowing to his new car would be the polite thing to do.

    Nice view! I wonder if Jenson will ever see the back of this?

    “Jenson told me to see if Mercedes have a mechanically-compressed positronic uptake inlet valve with an exhaust-dampened variable catalyser coil. He couldn’t tell me exactly what it looked like, but he said I’d know it when I saw it.”

    Well, we’re boned.

    Hmm. Jenson said if I supplicate myself before the majesty of Ross’s read end, magical down force would appear.

    After their DRS problems in 2012, Mercedes were so focussed on improving their rear wing that they forgot to work on the rest of the car!
