Caption Competition

Max Chilton, John Surees, Monza, 2013

Max Chilton is the latest driver to have his place on the 2014 grid confirmed as he continues for a second season with Marussia.

Chilton, who made history by being classified in all 19 races in his debut season, will drive Marussia’s first Ferrari-powered car this year. Here he is talking to Ferrari’s 1964 world champion John Surtees at last year’s Italian Grand Prix.

    JS “This Max is a pit lane, and that Max is a circuit, it is usually customary to drive faster on the latter.”

    JS: “If we raced to the end of the pitlane there, and I were on foot, I’d still win”

      Hahaha, Max does look a little like he has been left in a Tandoori oven too long.

      JS: While you were in doing your hair and using the teeth whitener, the other drivers were over there, lining up on the start of the grid for the race.

    Surtees: Oh, those red cars over there, I loved driving for Ferrari. Son, do you realize what does the support of Maranello mean for your team this year?
    Chilton: 19 consecutive race weekends of pasta? Mmmm…

    “John, I don’t know what you’re talking about. I have never used hair gel. Certainly not in the quantities you describe. Now, there are certain people out there – certain very interested, very powerful people – who want to see that things stay that way. Now, I don’t want to name names and drag somebody’s reputation through the mud, but the last person who suggested I was wearing hair gel … well, lets just say that he won’t be running McLaren for much longer.”

    JS: See that car over there Max…. Just went out for a drive and went so fast my face nearly fell off.
