    Paul’s buddy – Ooh! Deja Vu!

  6. “That driver has completely lost his marbles!”

    1. I do like this one @mach1 :D

  7. – what car is that?
    – I don’t know, looks like a Sauber.

  8. Check my pulse, I think I see a Mercedes leading…

  9. Pirelli still can’t work out how they were spotted at the Mercedes “secret test”. They had strictly informed all staff to remove their name badges to avoid being identified in the crowds.

  10. Degrading tires weren’t making Pirelli’s ‘hook an F1 car with a crane’ game any easier

    1. Like that @chris_browning, puts picture again in a different context, and away from the tyre-ing tiregates :) I LOLed.

    2. @chris_browning
      Oh that is brilliant.

    3. The marshals at massanet were much better at this game –

      1. GP2 is easy!

  11. “Once we understand these tyres more, which we will eventually get to, then I think another win is definitely on the books.” Lewis Hamilton.

    Sometimes reality is funnier than fiction.

    Dear Mr. Wolff, we’re waiting the AMGs to be arrive on our home by next week.
    p.s. you are welcome.

  13. “I told you shrinking the Mercedes would cause a significant improvement in its tyre wear”

  14. “So you remembered to invite all the teams right?”

  15. Turns out their idea to put old Bridgestones with Pirelli stickers was good…

  16. Pirelli-guy 1: “Lewis or Nico?”
    Pirelli-guy 2: “You still can’t distinguish them after all those kilometres??”

  17. – These Pirelli tests are so secret !
    – Yeah. My wife thinks I’m cheating her, and she asks me to divorce.
    – We should tell the press, then.
    – Sure.

  18. Paul, did I hear that Mercedes are pursuing another one of our technical engineers?

  19. I’m tired of all of this

  20. – “so, have you been to the bookie yesterday?”
    – “yes sir, everything according to the plan”
