  2. “Well, at least this injury is temporary…”

    1. @wessel-v1 Incredibly bad taste and not at all amusing.

      1. While I agree this is at least borderline, I don’t think Niki would be actually angry at Toto if he said that.

    1. Haha, yes!

  4. “How did Ross Brawn make them obey orders?”

  5. It’s not looking good Niki….Had to change my Facebook relationship status to ”its complicated” !!

  6. For some reason, the promotional poster for “Rush 2: the sequel” failed to capture the public’s imagination.

      1. Paddy Lowe and his wife to be the villains, while Ross Brawn comes back to save the day…

    “You should see the other guy…..”

  10. Wolf: Oh my God, this hurts so bad.
    Lauda: Really? I’ve been through worse.

  11. Toto asks Niki to cycle the Hungaroring for an “exploratory lap” to avoid a repeat of his recent bicycle injury. Niki gives a resounding “no”.

    1. Mercedes are walking wounded in Hungary – literally – and are seeking damage limitation for Lewis after another Q1 blow out.

  12. Lauda: “Maybe next time you’ll listen. I said no team orders dammit!”

  13. Lauda: “Lewis told you Roscoe doesn’t like strangers…”

    1. I like that one! :)

  17. We hope Horner didn’t see us nicking their parts.

  18. Don’t believe that F1 is turning into a circus? Then how do you explain those animals in the paddock?

  19. Well that was the the last time we discussed with Nico and Lewis who gets preferred treatment.

  20. Ok fine, I’ll do it up myself, but once we get to the loo, I’m giving you a team order.

    1. Love it! Although the mental image it invokes is not good.

  21. In this instance Lauda agrees with the amount of time spent fixing the Armco.

  22. TW: … and that’s how I fell off my bike. Funny story, right?
    NL: You’re better off letting Susie be the permenant driver from now on.

    1. @damo00r, I quite like that!

    2. Nice one.

  24. “Okay Niki, lets see if we can make these guys believe that it’s your arm that is broken.”

  25. I hope I’m clear now: no team order in my team!

  26. Nice try Niki, but there’s nothing in that pocket.

  36. Lauda: “That’s what happens to you when you mess with a Stevenage boy”
