    2. Good one.

  11. After that, all I saw was your rear end!

  12. Lewis: “Will you be my teammate next year? Toto promises equal treatment.”
    Seb: “I don’t believe you.”

  13. Lewis: “Doesn’t Bernie look shorter now he’s no longer in charge? I swear he can’t be taller than this”

      Good one :)

  14. Vettel: ‘explain to me how you could have won that race?
    Hamilton: *using hands to demonstrate* ‘so you see, if i deduct the 5 second penalty, I would have been 5 seconds behind you, and passed you to win’
    Vettel: ‘riiiiiggggght’

  15. After a show of hands, Vettel is still unsure of what Mercedes has up their sleeves.

    Vettel remains unconvinced of Hamilton’s acting chops in the run-up to Liberty Media’s new F1 venture, “The Fresh Prince of Gulf Air”.

  25. What happened to Stroll this time!?

  26. LH – the brittish public only like me upto here!!!

    SV. – Try paying your taxes bud !!!

    1. Not sure if the swiss public like Vettel for paying his taxes. :X

    SEB: Using hybrid power?
    LEWIS: Nah man, they’ve got proper engines that still sound good.

    1. “Well, now you can go to a grand prix and keep your hands here without having to cover your ears for fear of damaging your hearing. Doesn’t that, like, spoil everything?”

    “A rap album…. really? Go offline for a couple of months………”

  34. Lewis I am feigning interest in your DJ mixing abilities.

  35. Unlike Nico, Valterri doesn’t freak out when I get this close.

    Lewis: “So, Dan was behind me in the pits and I thought it would be funny if I held him up”
    Seb: “….”
    Lewis: “I got a penalty and lost the race… but you should have seen the look on Dan’s face!”

    Wax on.
    Wax off.

    1. Winner for me

  40. Yeah Seb, my right hand does know what my left hand is doing…see?

  41. This is how I massage Toto, and then he rewards me with team orders.

  42. SV – “Are you nervous that your new team mate will beat you?”
    LH – “No, see …… hands aren’t shaking at all”

  43. Lewis, getting in Seb’s head: “Remember that time in Sochi when Daniil gave you a nice double shunt? Do you think that will happen again this year?”

    Seb: “Are you serious, man? Obviously I remember.”

    “So they were just next to each other, like…”
    “Yeah, two desert seagulls!”

    1. This is great.

    2. Excellent

  45. “I love my new team mate, he let me through just like that…” Lewis

  46. “I’m still faster. Let’s try some red hands and I’ll show you.”
    “No need, I can see it’s not just your hands that are red.”

  47. …and he was rubbing in the suntan oil when i mistakenly said a little higher, Nico.

  48. Lewis: “Seb on the first lap you were flying like a falcon and by the last lap there was big ‘Gulf of Air’ between you and me”

  49. LH: “No, cause you see my jaw is not even, so I shave the right hand side a bit higher…. Like this… see… It makes it even, right?”
    SV: “Yea…..ah, I guess…”

  50. “So what was the plan with Nico anyway”
    “I just would have moved a little like this on his overtake”

    1. anyway?*

    2. (I could almost believe it with Vettel’s expression)

  51. Lewis : … And that’s how you do the ‘Ketchup Song’ dance step Seb!

  52. “Remember the days before everything relied on aerodynamic grip, when we could race like this?”

  53. Ham: There are similarities Seb, like moving the LP. The sound is not the same, but yeah, you got to be smooth.
    Seb: Oh men, another bites the dust

  54. Lewis: … This race shows the problem Fernando will face at Indy car. It’s only at the start of an F1 race when you get cars off the straight at high speed wheel to wheel while braking with one each side of the racing line right through the apex, then accelerating. At Indy car you do that at every corner …

  55. Side by side on an oval sounds dangerous, Seb. But I guess Alonso doesn’t have a career in music to fall back on like me.

  56. LH: I tell you it was a real overtake, I passed him like this …
    SV: Ha ha, that was team orders man, who are trying to kid.

  57. Lewis: you put you right hand out first then you put your left hand out and shake it all about and you turn your self around, then you put your right foot out first then put your left foot out and shake them all about and turn ourself around and that you do the hokey pokey.

  58. As FOM tries to bring back the success of the early 00’s, they introduce the Las Ketchup song Asereje at the end of race celebrations

    “Maybe we should just level the top 2 podium spots…”
    “Uuh bwoah I don’t know, Lewis”

  60. Lewis – This is how I DJ..
    Seb – No I was asking if you heard about VJ

  61. Lewis – I am really a good DJ.
    Seb – I don’t believe you.
    Lewis – No really, this is how I wacka wacka wacka ….

  62. Lewis: so I did this really cool pass on Valterri…
    Seb: oh, I couldn’t tell. Obviously my mirrors are kind of small and obviously they vibrate a lot. But I think you were too far back anyway…

  63. Hamilton “And I was here and Danny Ric was here so I backed him up a bit and took a 5 second penalty”
    Vettel “worth it to not have to do a shoey”

    1. hahahha

    Sebastian: “……..Bim?”

  65. You should be feeding your dogs with a food that has a stomach calming effect

  66. “Can you feel the heat coming off this bottle?”

  67. HAM: “I could have pulled up alongside you.”
    VET: “What are you on about, mate? You’re in a Merc!”

  68. So I cut down on my throttle, turn tight and I’m on your 6 o’clock. Saw you trying to shake me off throught that chicane but I stick behind like a glue. I though I had you cold when I realised I got no guns on my ship.

  69. Laying the pizza is the most important part, you should do like this, and this, and this…

  70. Hamilton: this is how Sainz destroyed the car of stroll
    Vettel: seriously? What’s up with this rookies?

  71. Lewis: I thought I seen your floor moving on the straight?
    Seb: ehhh….

  72. LH:……..and he cuts me off just like that .”

    SV: “Kids ! they’ve got no respect, shouldn’t be allowed in F1 till they’re 25 at least.

    LH: ” Yes, that’s what I’ve been telling Toto”.

  73. Ham : When Fernando was my team mate , he taught me that you always gotta leave this much space.
    Vet : Do you think there is any Champagne in his garage ?

  74. LH: …but Ferrari let Kimi come back, why not Alonso?
    SV: Come on Lewis, let me enjoy my podium.
    LH: I’m just sayin…
    SV: Please, he couldn’t even beat a rookie, and that was ten years ago.

    Lewis: “We are so close but at the end of the season I will be the champion”

  76. Lewis: “…and I mix up my music like this…”
    Seb: *How do I explain him that I don’t care*

  77. Lewis explaining what trickery he did on pit lane, Vettel in awe after not thinking about it first.

  78. “I’m not even thinking about the championship, Seb. Just taking it one race at a time…”

    SV: Yeh whatever.

  80. If you ever get beside me, i gonna bump you off like I did Nico.

  81. Lewis entertains Vettel by performing his own adaptation of the Sainz-Stroll crash.

  82. I know I said I wanted to fight but if you could just stay behind like this far?

  83. Vet: “Ah, I see.. already doing Tai Chi to calm your anger down? Arrivabene sent me to a Tai Chi course after my fallout with Charly…for, you know, anger management”
    Ham: “Uhm, naah, I was just thinking I it is time for a manicure again”

    1. sorry for the “I” that is too much

  84. LH: “I’ll show this magic trick see – one minute I’m behind my teammate, the next minute I’m in front of him! Magic!”

    SV: “That’s not magic! It’s called unspoken number one status.. which is actually really handy for making sure your teammate disappears.”

  85. Seb – “Lewis, you need to stop going for manicures before races”

    “Oh my god I’VE FOUND MY IDENTICAL HAND TWIN!!”

    “Erm they’re both your hands Lewis”

  87. Spoken to the other guys. We are going to let Button win Monaco to annoy Alonso. So we both drive like this…

  88. and then NICO’S HIT ME, Nico’s just hit me.
    SV: arhhh he’s retired now mate…, you. really. need. to. let. this. go.

    1. Well, just realised v
      valterri’s number is 77, erase this from your memories

  95. Lewis: “Toto would love you to join us next year – and he hates issuing team orders. Me too. However, if we’re side by side – but I’m faster – he will. ”
    Seb: “Whaaaaaat?!?!?”

  96. Lewis: So the guy tells Bieber, “you gotta be this tall to ride”.

    Seb: I thought he was grounded????

  97. LH: “then i turn on HAMMERTIME, the team tells bottas to move over and off i go”

  98. “And Sainz just steams up the inside like he wasn’t there!”

  99. Hamilton: You passed me in that first corner when I wasn’t looking!
