        6th April 2015, 1:11

        If you look at the bat, it looks a bit like RBR’s nose cone of last year!

        It looks a bit like that, but no idea why – it is a still in the end (and no trailing lines).

        Maybe it is because the catcher still has his hands in ‘catching mode’.
        Although it seems he is standing up again (after the strike).

        1. ColdFly F1 (@)
          6th April 2015, 1:14

          Probably should call the catcher ‘Wicket keeper’

          but then again ‘Cricket is like Baseball on valium’.

    58. Feel the force.. India

    59. Perez tries out for the English cricket team.

        *It was already spinning before I hit it!

        1. Funny😊

    61. It was a good drive but unfortunately I hit Jenson in the side.

    62. Daniel (@mechanicalgrip22)
      5th April 2015, 1:37

      At least this will get me some points!

    63. McLaren try to improve their chances by distracting some of the other drivers just before the race…

    64. Hit & run, I love Cricket…

    65. “So, when does the adrenalin kick in?”

    66. “I never seem to be given the best equipment”

    67. “So is that 3 points or 4?”

      The England cricket team suffered yet another defeat in the World Cup series, this time to Mexico. Sergio “Checo” Perez eventually scored a single, the only run of the game, enough to clinch the win for the Mexicans.

      Sergio Perez wants to be more than a one-hit wonder

    70. Man in blue says: “I thought you said we’d be playing against the full force of India?”
      Man in green says: “Okay so Hulkenberg isn’t here. What’s the big deal?”

    71. Checo – “I’d like to play this cricket thing, but Telmex said I already have enough toys”

    72. That guy in blue though…

      he’s got the FHRIP look

    73. SP: will this ball end up in the water?

      1. NH is trying to catch the ball behind the camera to save the ball. It is the only ball available in Force India due to tight budget and there won’t be cricket game any more for the team.

        1. If it goes into the water.

    74. Checo gets a great idea of hitting cars around him with cricket balls so it wouldn’t damage his own car .

    75. Floating palm tree is not amused.

    76. Force India F1 car has very little grip that Perez ended up drifting so much out of the track until he reached the nearby cricket field.

    77. Sergio responds to criticism about supposedly being able to hear crickets call over a current F1 race.

    78. “So to be able to score both need to run? Even less chance for Manor”

    79. He connects! To bad he hits his teammate and gets run out.

      1. It should have been – He connects! To bad he collid with his teammate and gets run out.

    80. Perez working on making contact, before he knocks Grojean for six in Malaysia

    81. Sergio Perez demonstrates just how easy it is to get a higher top speed than his VJM08 can.

    82. WHACK!!!!


      Bernie in the background: OOOOOWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!

      Sergio: AY DIOS MIO!!!!! I BETTER RUN!!!!
