  1. Great captions!
    I’d choose Maldonado or Verstappen if there had to be a winner amongst winners :)

  2. Niki breaking Toto’s arm was hilarious. I forgot about that one…

  3. Well, it’d have to be between the Lauda/Wolff and Maldonado ones for me, but if we’re honest, the funniest thing in this article is the last photo.

  4. Its unique that the Hungary GP caption (Toto and Niki) turns into reality, in fact Ricciardo won in Belgium :D

  5. So did Alonso finding a way out of his contract!

  6. Alonso talking with Lewis on the podium about Sabastian Vettel: follow the link to hear the full gossip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEzqCcF2mps

  7. 2014? somebody lost his calendar, some photos are older than my son!

    1. Photos don’t have to be new to be used in a caption competition.

  8. This is quite possibly the funniest article I’ve read all year (except for the Horner interviews)

    Absolutely fantastic stuff from the F1 Fanatics!

  9. very helpful thank so much

  10. I thought the Vettel wanting a better brush was hilarious… so was Surtees and Chilton

  11. Whenever there’s a caption competition I wait to read the other 4 pr 5 shortlisted as well. They’re all brilliant.
