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

    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.”

    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!!”

    So Paul, there’s this judge I know who needs new tyres for his car. Think you could get some Silverstone spec Pirelli’s for him?

    Confusion hits with the realisation that even though the position of the camera man was so, the picture ended up coming out mysteriously the wrong way around.

    “How long til the start of the race?”
    “About ten minutes.”

    BE- Ze germans
