  1. I managed to find the sunglasses, now where can I get those chains?

    1. Very good. Won it at the first corner.

  2. Bernie: All these problems, I wish I could talk to someone about it… Lewis: I could hook you up with a Twitter account if you want?..

    1. @me4me

      #blessed

  3. Hamilton: So Bernie, you sorted out the unlimited power for me and the restricted power for the others right! Bernie: Yup!

    1. Hamilton: please restrict tire chamber for Kimi, restrict radio assist for Rosberg, restrict engine development for Alonso, and last but not least..restrict Vettel to shout yoo-hoo!

  4. “The good, the bad and the ugly”

  5. Bernie: Can you fix me up with one of those gold chains?
    Lewis: I’ll be #blessed.

  6. “I told Sebastian ‘you should be doing what he’s doing’”

  7. Lewis: I’ll have the championship, you can have Nicole

  8. They’ve told that I’m running this like Kim Jong Un…
    I know what you feel… they told that I dress like Dennis Rodman.

  9. 2nd button from the bottom on bernies shirt :
    i need more money bernie, these other buttons aren’t pulling their weight

    1. Lewis: “So when’s it due?”

  10. Lewis: “C’mon Bernie, reveal your secret about women.”

  11. But if I let a Ferrari get that close, they might pass Nico!

  12. Lewis: So Bernie, that thing that happened in Malaysia won’t happen again, right?
    Bernie: Of course man, no problem…

  13. Bernie: “Lewis did I ever tell you about the time I paid off the German government to get away with bribery”

  14. Lewis began to suspect that the Assisting the Elderly badge Nico had mentioned wasn’t a real thing at all, and the ‘nice old man’ was in fact completely insane.

    1. +1. You got my vote!

    2. Lewis and an elderly fan..

  15. Now Lewis, you have to agree; calling the track Bernie’s Rein has much more zing to it than simply Bahrain; wouldn’t you agree?

  16. Bernie: “If I weren’t wearing a belt, my belly would literally explode!”

  17. Lewis Hamilton heads F1’s new ‘Care in the Community’ program.

  18. So Lewis, the german GP is history as we agreed. Now give me that chain.

    How much will you pay for my gold jewellery, Bernie?

    You look ridiculous Lewis I’ll pay you to not wear it

  28. “Okay Lewis. Pippa Middleton next alright? Or Gina Maria Schumacher I don’t mind. Plus a speeding ticket and a rumour about you being gay. Just a rumour, trust me. My word is my bond. Then five championships, honest to God. Okay okay six then. Who dares wins my son.”
