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

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

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

  4. Sorry Bernie not interested

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

  6. Can we please talk about 2014 Bernie?

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

  7. PH: oh look, a penny!
    BE: you’ll need it to compensate all those girls affected when your new range of condoms burst…

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

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

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

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

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

  13. 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.

    1. I read it in the mayor’s and Basil’s voice from Fawlty Towers, great :)

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

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