  6. Hamilton: “will you STOP looking at my girlfriend with that face, please?”

  7. Hamilton: ” Fernando, hey, umm, I don’t want to alarm you but, you seem to have a black tape worm protruding from your stomach”.

      I know it doesn’t work as a caption, but this deserves a comment saying how funny it is. So here.

    2. All it needs is a speech bubble.

  16. So then I said “switch Massa’s wheels around, It’ll be hilarious”!

  17. LH: Do you remember how much fun 2007 was?

    1. “Swap deal with Nico?”

  18. “I can tell Toto you are the best replacement of Nico.”

  19. Lewis: “And then I said to Sebastian, Monster gives you wins”

    1. Saying that, I’m not sure now, are Monster still a sponser of Mercedes?

      1. I still see the Monster claw marks on both drivers helmets, so I assume they are.

  20. “I’ve been told that you are the man to talk to if I want to buy an expensive vacuum cleaner”.

  22. Romantic Dinner at McDonalds tonight?

  23. LH: do you wanna having kids? FA: why? LH: so I can be even faster than you!

  24. They took away my Pirelli cap to give to the winner of F1fanatic’s prediction competition!

    Hamilton: “…so then I say to them, “I never expected to be the #1 in the team!”

  26. “You are not hiring Ross Brawn are you??”

  27. LH: “And then they say, same cars and both have equal treatment”
    FA: “Know what you mean, we have the same thing at Ferrari”

    1. ++ Excellent!

    2. Brilliant!!!

  28. “Hey man, we’ve got mics…whatta ya say we bust a rhyme?”

      LH: Save weight
      FA: Luca hates

      FA: Bernie takes
      LH: Dennis a flake
      FA: Sensors mistake
      LH: Eff Drake

      1. @robbie
        “We didn’t start the fire
        It was always burning
        Since the wheels’s been turning”

        1. I thought it read very like the Billy Joel song!

          1. @vettel1 Lol…now that you mention it…

          2. @robbie @vettel1 Max is right! It does read like “We didn’t start the fire”! Can’t believe I didn’t pick up on that! :)

      2. @robbie
        Very good mate
        Everybody shake
        Contest at stake
        Yours’ a good bait

  29. LH: Fernando, what are you looking at?
    FA: Sebastian finishing the race.

    1. I think we may have found our winner!

    2. Good one ;)

    3. Winner! lol

  30. Easy to read LH’s lips as he whispers right into FA’s ear…”Hee hee…PRIX…I still think it’s funny pronouncing it wrong.”

  31. lewis: toto told me he wants you as my teammate next year
    fernando: say what?

    1. +1 probably accurate :)

  32. Manufacturers are the best, arent they?

  33. LH: So, except for Lotus, it seems cars without codpieces are the way to go this year…

  34. Daniel McCarthy
    26th April 2014, 13:11

    LH: Hired a new team principle with no racing experience huh?

    FA: Err yeah…

    LH: Better make the most of this podium then bro!

  35. Hamilton: “Have you seen Roscoe?”
    Alonso: “Yes, he was being served at the local restaurant yesterday”
    Hamilton: “Really? What was he eating?”
    Alonso: …

    1. Ha, if only it was in Korea ;)

  36. Right, so you quit Ferrari for McLaren then Seb will get stuck in Maranello.

  37. And then he said, “Tough luck”.

  38. So anyway… as I was saying Fernando… I said to Sebastian, don’t know about wings… Reb Bull gives me wind…. should be piping that to the turbo on the straights… ahahahha

  39. Hamilton’s cap draws inspiration from the Auto Union Type C.

  40. LH : Why Nico is so childish out here ?
    FA : He doesn’t have our caps.

  41. LH: At last a worthy competitor along side me on the podium…
    FA: ditto…

  42. “If you keep friends with me I’ll convince Toto to get you in and Nico out”

  43. Matthew Abbott
    26th April 2014, 13:55

    LH: How long you reckon I can keep dominating Nico before he delays me at the pits?

    1. FA: Depends on what you mean with dominating. If you mean Nico winning in Malaysia, Monaco and Nürburgring, while you win in Montreal and Indianapolis, then I guess that he will delay you in the pits by Hungary if you do not respect the agreements on alternating higher fuel load for each race.

  44. …and Wolff said if you keep bashing Ferrari you can have Nico seat next year

  45. LH: So much for capping costs…mine’s unique and you’ve got two!

    1. That was a brilliant caption. LOVE IT!!

  46. Fernando makes his leanings towards Mercedes very clear after another 1-2 by Mercedes in China .

  47. LH : Feels like ’07 again , man !

  48. Ham “Just keep smiling for the cameras and listen. Don’t you ever dare to squeeze your way into my team.”

  49. FA: So… that’s what i need to do to take Nico out of the team

  50. Martin Solis
    26th April 2014, 14:37

    You realise our team mates are throwing darts at our faces right now, right?

  51. LH: Hey Fernando, did you hear that Renault modeled this year’s engine on an ice-cream churner in honour of Kimi?
    FA: [frozen smile into the distance as realization dawns]

  52. HAM:Hey Nando how about a swop , a Merc engine for a night with your girlfriend?
    ALO: Sure you wouldn’t prefer another race director i hear Stefano is free!

  53. Lewis: “OK, on 3, point at Ron and wave”

    1. LOL!!! Great one!

  57. Lotus-Grosjean
    26th April 2014, 15:33

    LH: What brought you here?
    FA: These horses that Chinese guy gave us.

  58. “Vettel had to let Ricciardo through. Again.”

  59. LH. No your the fastest.
    FA. No your the fastest
    LH. No your the fastest
    FA. No your…………

  60. “Nico is a good pupil, are you happy with your apprentice at Ferrari?”

  61. Ham: “If you like I can tow you next time..”

  62. Ham: It’s spelled M e r c e d e s, but I don’t have the phone no with me right now”

  63. LH: “Am I the best or what ?”
    FA: “hihihihihihhiiii !”

  64. LH: “And then Christian told Seb to let Daniel through!”
    FA:”I feel SO sorry for him…”

  65. A Merc is faster than a Fi4t.

    – My Merc might be a good car!
    – I hate you!

  71. Alonso: Look at the curves on that beauty, oh la la.
    Hamiltion: Dude, don’t stare like that at my car, she’s shy.

  72. Lewis- So shall we drive for Ron next year?
    Fernando- have you seen how slow they are?

  73. I don’t have a clue what he said, but it was really really good to see Fernando genuinely smiling again both here and on a shot in a review gallery of Formula1.com. It is very telling that this had to be pointed out.

  74. LH; Hey i think i saw u before.. like in year 2007.. anyway im Lewis. Whats your name?
    FA; Oh ya? Really? :) Im Fernando. Nice to know u.

  75. LH; Nando, while i still around you should just forget about your WC dream this year.. lol..
    FA; Lol.. Really?? Did you forgot to wear your underwear?

  76. Apparently Seb cant cope with a loose rear, I’m not sure whether they are talking about the RB10 or just the chinese food?

  77. Is that Kimi in the crowds who’s giving me that “I will show you what I can do” look? This is weird, I am used only to Felipe’s.

  78. Gary Miereanu
    26th April 2014, 18:47

    So I guess we’re not catching a Clippers game anytime soon.

  79. “Lewis, I’m not too sure about this sloped floor they installed here on the podium.”

  80. Im going to lap you at Barcelona.

  81. I don’t hear the crowd booing us, do you?

  82. Ricardo Marquina
    26th April 2014, 19:19

    Where is Checo? is my partner on the podium

  83. Wait… If you finished third and I finished first, where’s the guy that finished second?

  84. LH: You smell that fernando that’s the smell of victory
    FA: No lewis that’s the smell of my fart

  85. LH: No more number 1 finger from Seb, isn’t that sweet?

  86. LH: Somebody waved the chequered flag a lap too early.
    FA: Yeh, he’s still down there waving it.

  87. LH: I told Nico it was Double points for Second this weekend…

  88. LH: Do you think I’m a better driver than Rosberg or Rosberg is a worse driver than me?
    FA: Yes

  89. “… and then, and then!, he said ‘tough luck’ and started crying…”

  90. As Hamilton gazes longingly at true love Alonso, it soon becomes clear Fernando has his eyes on someone elsewhere

  91. Lewis: “You know those gremlins you’ve been putting in Kimi’s car.”
    Fernando: “No…”
    Lewis: “You put one in my car Saturday morning, didn’t you?”
    Fernando “No…”
    Lewis: “Well I put it in Nico’s car.”
    Fernando: (Mutley snicker)

  92. Hamilton:” Whats that Manuel?”

    Alonso: por favour mEester Hami, I learn my Eenglish in a book”

  93. That Rosberg does not take being beaten very well….does he? Remember how you took it?

  94. Thomas Smith

  95. …and she said she gonna do it again if I win. Come on man, don’t look her on the eye…

  96. “But then again, you, Nico, and Seb all know how tough it is to be routinely beaten by your teammate.”
    “I’m smiling but I’m going to slap you later for that.”

    1. Fernando: You should know better than me! Button scored 43 points more than you in 2011. You and I scored the same points in 2007!

  97. Ham: My mic’s naturally bigger than yours.

  98. So,…Luca says you are driving taxis now?….Can I get a ride later?

  116. Lewie: Do you like my diamond earrings?

    Fernando: Yeah. They are shiny, makes you go faster, make you win more and probably it is easier
    to pick up chicks.
