    “And then I said, ‘don’t worry Fernando, next year’s car will be competitive’!”

  2. “So, who’s next?”

    1. Sorry, but I’m more of a Close to the Edge and Caress of Steel guy, Luca!

      1. @davidnotcoulthard

        By “Caress of Steel” you mean “2112”, right?

    “Well, this is awkward…”

  4. “Do I have to show my fist?”

  5. Marco- “Stayin alive stayin aliv…..OH! Luca I didn’t see you there! I was just testing my headset….

  6. “If only he knew what we were calling him on the radio!”

  7. MM: And then I got on the radio to Kimi and said “Fernando is faster than you…” I was unsure what his reaction was because he reacts to everything in the same way!

      What? @craigo-o

    2. “…and then I said to Kimi, ‘we don’t have a number 2 driver at Ferrari'” :D

  8. Why don’t we start team orders even earlier this year? We’re already so many points behind – Forza Fernando!

  9. Hey, you’re both right, he wants me to speak to someone called Newey

  10. LDM: He he he, he doesn’t know what is going on?

  11. Luca: “good luck, muhaha”

  12. “I’m a joke”

  13. Luca: Does Fernando knows he is going to be lapped today by Mercedes?
    Marco: No, he wont be. We are switching him on a faster strategy and let Kimi be lapped down.
    Luca: Kimi will be furious!!
    Marco : We can always give him icecreams to cool down :P

    1. Luca: You are learning the tricks of trade too early.. :D

    2. winner

  14. “And so we all agree it would be a shame if anything unfortunate were to happen to your kids or wife … Now, lose the sad faces, smile for the cameras, and back to work !”

    1. hahaha perfect! :D

  15. Just saying it sounds funny, try it………. Cost Cap, Hahahahaha!!!!

  16. LdM: I’m finally quitting, guys!

  17. Luca and a co-conspirator are seen here initiating Marco Mattiacci with the old shaving-cream-in-the-headphones gag.

    Guy on the right: “…but he knows nothing about F1 at all, who the hell is this guy?”
    LdM: “don’t worry, he’s just here to be scapegoated for how badly I’ve messed 2014 up. I’m bringing Ross back next year.”

  20. Yeah, who needs Newey when you got history?
