    86 is the best!

  2. “This conversation lasted longer than your tyres do, Paul.”

    the 77 was just fantastic :)

  3. 77,79,83 and 86 are great. Don’t get 66 or 81

    1. I mean 66 and 88

        Motagny got done for drugs and 88 is a reference to the Kaiser Chiefs song ‘Oh My God’.

  4. 66 is a reference to drugs and 88 is based on their song lyric ‘oh my God I can’t believe it, I’ve never been this far away from home’.
    I like 74, the expression on Bernies face is perfect.

  5. I like 85 best.

  6. 86 and 74 are perfect :-D

  7. Many great ones, but I really love 69…

    1. @skylien
      Please rephrase that comment!

      1. Please discipline your thoughts ;)

  8. I thought 89 was awesome! Sums up the story of Fernando’s bad decisions.

    ‘Are you sure you want to quit this session? All unsaved progress will be lost.’

    1. Tbh, i didn’t got it. Sure, it’s a nice reference to the Windows’ prompt, but can’t seem to find the link to Alonso’s failed choices…

      1. Seriously? (@Keisalex) He should have won the title at least 4 or 5 titles by now but….. had a chance in the McLaren his 1st time around but, whined and kicked his feet because he didn’t receive preferential treatment over new boy Hamilton, jumped ship as a team is progressing (Ferrari) and rejoined McLaren in a dog of a car. If that isn’t bad decisions I’ll eat my hat.

          @wesly Maybe i wasn’t clear enough. I know all these stuff, i just didn’t spotted the referrence point in “unsaved progress will be lost..”..

          1. Because of his unlucky decision to leave Ferrari when he did. Look where Vettel is now. Fernando should have been able to reap those rewards but was impatient. All progress was lost.

  9. 84 is perfect.

  10. There were so many good ones this ear, it was often difficult to pick a winner. And I was often surprised to discover that even when I wasn’t sure how well an image would work, you all still managed to find funny things to say about it!

    I laughed hardest at 74 (Ecclestone and Hamilton by @S162000), 78 (Grosjean and Pharrell by @Neilosjames) and 82 (Pastor Maldonado by @Jethro).
