  1. “Frank’s already said no.”

  2. “I’ve worked with a Brazilian driver before. It didn’t end well.”

  3. Symonds: “Definitely full throttle on the exit of the corner, else the car won’t spin.”

  4. “What does your dad know about the legal system? He’s not famous, is he?”

  5. Felipe, did you know that with the double points rule you would have been the 2008 WDC ?

  6. Symonds: “I repeat you, that I don’t owe you a title.”

  7. I told you I am getting you a NEW baby sitter! Rob will be busy looking after Frank this year.

  8. Pat: So, we are going to have a new engineer for you, no Rob Smedley.
    Felipe : You always do this. First you took away my win in Singapore and now you take away Rob.

  9. We got a new LCD screen for you steering wheel so Rob can send you love hearts during the race.

  10. Pat: Here’s the plan Felipe, you crash, SC is out, Valtierri wins, simple.
    Felipe: But Pat, aren’t I the team leader?
    Pat: Oh, yes, team leader…

  11. “I apologise, Felipe, for my Singapore-ling behaviour in 2008.”

  12. “And that’s why Fernando was faster than you.”

  13. Massa: “I heard that you guys have a special retirement package for us Brazilians.”
    Symonds: “Never mind that!”

    1. Brilliant!

  14. I know it’s hard to believe but we really do want you to pass Alonso if you get a chance.

  15. Look, Felipe, this is your car. No more the red one!

  16. Symonds: “Your taking Pastor’s place so youvegot a lotto live up to son”
    Massa: “mmhmm”

  17. Pat Symonds: You put your foot down, even if Alonso’s faster
    Felipe Massa: Ok?………might take me some time to get use to that…..

  18. PS : “No Felipe, that color, stays. You can’t have the car in Red.”

  19. Symons: – When I said to Frank he needs a “brazilian”, I wasn’t referring about a driver!

    1. or Symonds: – This is not the “brazilian” I was think about!

      1. Or, I said Gazillion, but Frank thought I said Brazillian.

        1. Hehe.. Superb @hohum

          1. Credit to @lucien_todutz,who came up with the idea but is probably restricted by having English as a second language. a final revision;
            I told Frank that if we wanted to win we would need a gazilian, Frank must have thought I said Brazillian.”

          2. +1 :)) funny… anyway I was thinking of the Brazilian wax-job :))

          3. A final revision too:

            – When I told Frank to get a “Brasilian”, I wasn’t thinking of a driver!

  20. ”So then we told Nelson to crash so Fernando could get ahead and in the ensuing chaos you lost the points that would have won you the Championship….Yeah, sorry about that. Can we be friends now?”
