          Ah yes my mistake! I won’t ask how you remember that!!

    3. Button: “How do you think we’ll do in Brazil?”
      Wilson: “I predict a breakdown.”

      1. You beat me to it!

      2. “And if there’s anybody left in here
        That doesn’t want to be out there
        Watching the people get lairy
        It’s not very pretty I tell thee
        Walking through town is quite scary
        It’s not very sensible
        I predict a riot
        I predict a riot
        I predict a riot
        I predict a riot”

    4. Jensen: “The rocket smoke visual effects in that Honda ad weren’t CGI. Just our engines doing their usual thing.”
      Ricky: “Yeah I figured that.”

    5. Ricky: What did you say to Ron?
      Jenson: Everyday I love you less and less!

    6. Oh my God I can’t believe it,
      I’ve never been so slow before!

      1. *sprays tea over laptop*

    7. Button: “You won’t believe which of these cars is faster!”

    8. Button gets advice on how to beat Hamilton to a career in music.

    9. Ricky and Jenson after cleaning their cars.

      Ricky: Jee, there was a lot of dust in your car.

      Jenson: Yeaahhh……..it sits the garage most of the time.

    10. Ricky: So, how many gallons a mile.

      Jenson: Actually, we use the term “engines per mile”.

    11. Ricky: “Do you listen to much music while you’re driving?”
      Jensen: “I did try some of your songs, but I kept missing corners, so I stopped”
      Ricky: “Was it that engrossing, thanks”
      Jensen: “Uh…..you could say that”

    12. wilson: how have you coped driving this years car?
      button: i shut my eyes and imagine it’s 1988, seems to work i’ve won the championship already in japan.
      wilson: I assume fernando must imagine that he’s driving gp2 then oh wait.

      Jenson Button and Ricky Wilson leave the McLaren Technology Centre after coming to a conclusion that they’ve a seen a standing-still McLaren F1 car often enough this year.

    14. “Right over here I’ve got a lightly used F1 that I can put you in very reasonably. Ron Dennis only used it to drive to church on Sundays.”

    15. “Let’s take the Civic, it’s quicker.”

    16. ‘I hear you are looking for new sponsors’.

      ‘Yeah, putting Johnnie Walker on the car was apt as the car barely goes faster than walking pace’.

    17. McLaren Tooned: Season 4 Sneak Peek.

    18. Jenson: “I want to retire.No longer required.I want to get by without the Ron on my back”
      Ricky: “The trick is getting you to think that all this was your idea”

    19. Yeah good one…we both get beat all the time.

    20. You know, Ricky, this used to be a great place. Sorry I’m getting a bit nostalgic..

    21. Ricky: “What will happen with Fernando if your car is still uncompetitive next season?”
      Jenson: “I predict a riot”

    22. Yeah, Ricky, you would fit in the McLaren Honda, but why would you want too?

    23. Don’t tell Honda, but we’re going to swap the engines out. The only concern is the Civic will be woefully underpowered.

    24. Ricky: “Keep walking Jenson”.
      Jenson: “This has been McLaren’s problem all year”.

    25. Ricky – “Jenson, any chance Mclaren will be back on top anytime soon?”
      Jenson – “Any chance you will back on top of the pops anytime soon?”

    26. “I guess this is familiar territory for you these days eh?”
      “What do you mean”?
      “Spending more time out of the car than in it”.

    27. So at Brawn I had a car that would “never miss a beat”. Me and my good teammate “Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby”. I moved to McLaren because “I predict(ed) a riot”. Now I say to Ron “Everyday I love you less and less”. And now I am just told that this is “The Modern Way”

    28. Jenson – “Ricky, now lets head over to Milton Keynes, where they make real formula 1 cars”

    29. How do you stay so positive, Jenson?

      Come downstairs, I’ll show you the dungeon torture chamber where we train mentally.

    30. “I can’t believe it”, said Jenson, “I’ve never been this far away from pole.”

      1. Glad I checked page 2 of the comments before posting the same thing :)

    31. Button meeting a chief more trustable than Ron.

    32. No one has heard of us in North America either

      “I love going to watch you guys race Jenson. It’s nice to get away from all the loud noise performing live music.”

    34. Ricky: So who gets the job of cleaning the skid marks off the floor?
      Jenson: Currently it’s a guy from Honda.

    35. Ricky Wilson: Why are we walking so slowly Jenson?

      Jenson Button: Ron believes this will make the car (MP4-30) faster when driving it.

    36. Watching the rear end get lairy
      The fronts not very pretty I tell thee
      Driving down straights is quite scary
      It’s not very reliable either
      All year long we got beaten
      We went the wrong way with Honda
      Would never of happened to Hamilton
      An old adversarial

    37. So tell me, what is a Kaiser Chief?

    38. Jenson to Ricky: you can really cut the corners in those buns.

    39. Jenson: So, who do you support?
      Ricky: Yorkshire’s finest, Manor!

    40. Jenson: What colour scheme shall we paint the car next year?

      Ricky: Ruby, Ruby, Ruby

    41. “This is the modern way”

      “Of faking it every day?”

    42. Excuse the lyrics Jenson but ‘I Heard it through the Grapevine’…..you’re having ‘Good Days and Bad Days’ . Just ‘Listen with Your Head’ Jenson ‘You Like it Too Much ‘ you have had a few ‘Little Shocks’ but ‘You Can Have it All’ . If not you are ‘Coming Home’.

    43. Ricky to Jenson… ” With all this technology JB…if things don’t improve next year…I predict a riot.. “

    44. Jenson: Im thinking about asking Ron if we can just leave the car in the garage for Brazil.

      Ricky: Better check with Fernando first

      Jenson: He’ll understand

    45. “Don’t know why you’re laughing at our plight Ricky, sure you support Leeds United”

    46. Jenson, So your company makes all those bread rolls ?

    47. “So I hear Lewis took the lead of your band Ricky?”

    48. So, Jenson, in 40 years or so, do you think we could do an F1 podium interview?

    49. “If you guys don’t improve next year then I predict a riot.”

    50. Sing it like this Jenson….”Oh my god I can’t believe it, I’ve never been this far away from pole”

    51. So you will be broadcasting on Alonso’s feed.

    52. Goal for goal. Button vs Wilson. Type R vs MP4-30 all under one roof at MTC.

    53. Jenson: “Can you name my next five engines? Not sure how many more I’ll need this year”
      Ricky: “Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby”

    54. Ron says my McLaren is only good enough for the ‘Kaiser’, I think he meant the khazi !!

    55. So do you love this car everyday less and less?

    56. “Cheers for the t-shirt Jense. Yeah, yeah I’ll put it on later……..”

    57. Jenson: “This is awkward… who did you say you were again?”

    58. Button : With my car being so fast, I am bored these days!
      Ricky : How about me being your race engineer. I’ll sing you to glory.
      (Laughs)
