    Eccelstone “Change the tyres or I will tell everyone about your affair”

    You let Mercedes test like that, really Paul are you as stupid as you look?

    BE: ‘Paul, if you’re looking for a job for next year, try CVC.’
    PH: ‘Why would I be looking for… Huh?’

    Sorry Bernie not interested

    Don’t worry Bernie, the only thing getting cut this weekend is your hair !

    Can we please talk about 2014 Bernie?

    Between you and me, Paul, I’m beginning to lose interest in 2014.

    BE: you’ll need it to compensate all those girls affected when your new range of condoms burst…

    So Bernie, did you ask your daughters about next years calender?

    For health and safety reasons, these tyres are pre-delaminated

    “… so, you see, Bernie, it’s not so difficult to walk out free of a tribunal.”

    “Bernie, we have a new tyre compound idea, but we really need to know what you use to make yourself so slippery”

    PH: Listen , some teams are pushing for a private test .

    BE : Let them test their heads .I have had a testing time already.

    Ok Paul, exploding tyres only to Ricciardo this week. Did u see how close his times were to my little Sebbie boy? If he gets a ride at RB next year there’s no way anyone will believe another Aussie suddenly cant get off the line.

    “Bernie, I told you to use that remote sparingly, now they’re starting to get suspicious.”

    Bernie: I need you to make me some high traction soap

    ”Hey Bernie….. As a very wise man once said…..Lets’s just retire and go fishing”

    “brace yourself Bernie … that guy with the camera promised me 50 quid if I would give you a big kiss.”

    Make ‘m go away!
    – the tyres?
    No, the Germans!

  19. MahavirShah (@mahavirshah) said on 20th July 2013, 14:49

    PH: “No Bernie, staring too hard at the tyres does NOT cause them to fail. Look, I’ll prove it to you”

    “So the going rate is 44 million?”
    “Usually yes, but where I am going a pack a smokes is the normal currency!!”
