    1. Hahahaha I won’t even bother, that’s hilarious

    2. Check mate! Winner!

    3. Can see Western propaganda has worked its magic on you nicely :)

  12. just making it clear I have finished ahead of Ricciardo more this year

  13. Concerns began to be expressed after it became evident how extreme driver weight loss programmes have become under the new regulations.

    1. Lol. Good one.

  14. So lets take this Kvyatt guy out of the way

  15. Some say the driver weight restrictions have gone too far….

  16. While other drivers had their backs to the walls, Kyvat stood tall to finish 2nd in Hungry.

    1. hungary*

  17. Put it down Dr Marko…
    No, you can’t take him home!

  19. Daniil’s Hungarian Grand Prix race rehearsal… Coming thru as others fall on side of road

  20. Hmmm, thought Red Bull gives you wings ?

  21. LOOK OUT DANIIL, Maldonado is behind you.. !!

  22. Do not hold Ricciardo behind. Do not hold Ricciardo, Danny, please. Do not hold Ricciardo. Copy? Let Ricciardo through please Danny. Danny please let Ricciardo through. Do not hold him up, let him through now please, now. NOW!

  23. He seems a bit quiet.

  24. Somehow, the hall of fame seems like a cost cut version this year.

  25. Once more Red Bull pit wall decides to get Kvyat out of the way.

  26. The door was locked and I swear they’ve changed positions since last night

  27. Who’s that Daniil Flat?

    Keeping in the trend of gimmicks involving the cars, F1 drivers are also becoming artificial.

  35. Kvyat doesn’t like being pushed around, but he couldn’t control himself after getting airborne.

  36. Unaccustomed to the podium, Kvyat leaves right after the race. Life-sized cut-out rushed up to accept the trophy on his behalf. Crowd just assumes in order to come 2nd he must have run the whole race flat.

  37. Ok, now everyone is as talkative as Kimi.

  38. Bernie puts the finishing touches to his latest F1 ripoff scheme… An evening with the drivers, £1000 a ticket.

  39. Left side is for drivers who will run the same team next year…
    Yes, I know you beat your teammate in Hungary Danny..
    Nevertheless It’s not your position because of RED BULL’s choice!

  47. For the last time, Romain, I didn’t steal your helmet!

  48. Low profile tyres are replaced with low profile drivers in the new rules for 2017.

  49. Marko: WHO IS HOLDING up Kvyat??

  50. Daniil Kvyat is held up as a template for future F1 drivers.

  51. It was a flying run for the Russian that day.

  52. Sorry, I was just laying new asphalt with my steamroller, didn’t see the drivers. But I think I’ve picked up all of them now. I’m sure they will recover soon.

  53. “I’m better off out of F1”, says Adrian Sutil. “It’s ridiculous how much weight the drivers have to lose now!”

  54. I swear … some of these guys are just so two-dimensional!

  55. Webber, disguised as Kvyat, is still trying his luck in F1.

  56. Putin wants this spot.

  57. Upon hearing the drivers discontent with F1’s new rules package, the FIA gears up for its new “Driver representatives” program.

  58. Silly season begins, and Kvyat’s cutout thinks, “Come on Merc or Ferrari engine! Please not a McHonda, please not a McHonda!”

  63. FIA found a perfect replacement for grid girls.

  64. Kvyat couldn’t handle the “press”.

  65. Looks like the engineers are succeeding in removing the unwanted human element from driving the cars. I doubt the spectators will notice.

  66. Still got more personality than Nigel Mansell.

  67. Let’s put him behind Ricciardo.

  68. Watch this: I put him behind Ricciardo, he pops up in front of him.

    1. Ha ha I like this.

  69. Hogan’s Alley reborn: F1 edition.

  70. Hopeful of opening his own museum like Fernando one day Daniil Kvyat starts collecting memorabilia.

  71. Crap, this Kvyat’s cut-outs covers my face..

  72. I told you I was, for sure, taller than Felipe.

  73. In an attempt to get around the new Start Regulations, Red Bull had returned to the traditional pedal operated clutch, and had surgically attached a two extra feet to Daniil Kvyat to operate it. However, following constant ridicule from fellow driver Daniel Ricciardo, who said it was ridiculous that an F1 driver needed extra feet to drive a car. In addition, there were protests from Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen regarding breaches to the F1 Safety Regulations regarding getting safely out of a car following a crash. Red Bull have announced the feet will be removed.

  74. “Finally old enough to join ‘the big time’ – the cardboard cut-outs!”

  75. I think I’ll just move my cutout to the front thank-you very much!

  76. Where should I put him? To the back? Or all the way to the back?

  77. You must be this tall to drive a formula one car.

  78. After the events leading up to the Hungarian GP, all the drivers were left feeling a little flat, and Daniil was particularly moved.

  87. Kvyat makes his way onto the dummy grid.

  88. Multimedia as Bernie sees it

  89. Todays F1 drivers are too one-dimensional and the current F1 season is a bit flat to be honest

  97. They say modern Formula One drivers are too 2 dimensional…

  98. Red Bull gives you that little ‘extra lift’

  99. After a Kvyat successful race, Putin demands Red Bull changes it’s name to just “Red”. He seems to speak for deaf ears though.

  100. ‘Board’ with the usual line up ?- think some drivers may not be ‘cut out’ to be champions? you are mistaken here Kvyat proves that in this pole position he could even win the ‘Red Bull Air Race’ !!
