    1. Pay fans.

        Only one that made me laugh out loud

      2. Clear winner in my book.

        But won’t win because its potentially disrespectful to Ericsson, and F1Fanatic has a company line to toe.

        1. Which companies line is being towed?

          Your ‘claim’ absolute fantasy rubbish. Implying Ericsson is a pay driver is not disrespectful anyway, should it be based on fact (which I am not asserting either way at this point.)

    2. After the Australia 2015 debacle, Ericsson was determined to give himself the best possible chance at the Sauber drive!

      1. To be fair, Sauber had a pretty good race at Australia 2015, achieving as double points finish.

        1. @david-a This is true, but I believe @rbalonso was referring to before the race. Sauber had somehow managed to convince 4 drivers that they would be driving the 2 race cars it was providing, and depending on who you believe, may have had up to 6 drivers signed at one point. Hope that helps explain why having 10 of “you” aiming for a Sauber race seat is a sensible plan…

          1. @alianora-la-canta Oh yeah, I forgot about that!

    3. Marcus Ericsson’s entire family assisted with the Australian GP attendance figures.

    4. Giedo van der Garde, all of this guys have priority on that Sauber seat

    5. Honda engineers secretly attend a Sauber event.

    6. In a face off with his fans Ericsson failed to keep his head down.

    7. Unfortunatly the cunning disguise for Saubers future engine supplier had a flaw.

      1. …….and in any case, all Australian F1 fans look the same, don’t they ?

    8. Marcus’ calling in reinforcements to take revenge on the chicken.

    9. Marcus Ericsson – a man with many faces.

    10. After being called up to the Stewards, Marcus took to hiding in plain sight to avoid retribution.

    11. In a field of Marcus Ericcson’s, Lance Stroll is still the worst driver

      Sauber Wars: Episode II – Attack of The Clones

    15. Marcus Ericsson: wow you guys paid to get in, just like I did?

      Though to be honest, I’m pretty sure most of the drivers on the grid will cream is easily on any track. 😀

    16. After finding she couldn’t sign different drivers for the same seat, monisha decided to try signing the same driver repeatedly for 2017

    17. “Quantity has a quality all its own”

      1. Excellent

    18. In light of Pascal’s injury substitution, Marcus reveals the contingency plan he’s used since his chicken/bike crash.

    19. The number of drivers ready to drive for Sauber Honda

    20. Even after several years in F1, most still couldn’t pick Ericcsson out in a crowd.

      1. Good one.

    21. Marcus has found someone he can beat…

    22. There’s always one person who forgets their sunglasses in those first-race class photos…

    23. Often duplicated, never copied…

    24. Being Marcus Ericsson

    25. Mr. Anderson.

      1. Nope. It’s just Mr. Ericsson. He’s definitely not THE ONE.

        1. Agent Smith?

    26. Giovinazzi can’t replace Marcus Ericsson if he doesn’t know who the real one is.

    27. Sauber confirms Honda-engine switch for 2018, starring Ericssons.

    28. Ericsson accidentaly gave away his plan on how to get out of 90% of his interviews and sponsorship comittments.

      Sauber problems about having many drivers hired for just 2 seats continue.

    31. Ericsson: Guys, why do I have to stand here to get my photo taken? And why are there so many good looking people here?

    32. Ericsson: Maybe if I engage with all these mclaren fans I can get alonso’s seat next year…..

    33. How the mighty have fallen, with their current form mclaren fans can only poke fun at the sauber drivers….

    35. Honda fans would like the grid to be full of Ericssons.

    36. Time for a face off

    37. Any of those people with the carbord still stuck to their face would drive better.

    38. Monisha Kaltenborn’s plans to raise money for Sauber by getting Marcus Ericsson transferred to Williams for the 2018 season are suddenly put into disarray by the discovery he has a secret longing to drive for McLaren.

    39. It was only by chance that Zak Brown discovered that McLaren didn’t have an exclusive engine supplier agreement with Honda.

    40. An unforeseen consequence of the end to Day Light Saving in Australia was Marcus Ericsson arriving at a PR photo-shoot at the time when Fernando Alonso was supposed to be present.

    41. Marcus Ericsson learns the hard way that one of the dangers of doing a green background photo-shoot is the person doing the photo-editing may add his image to the wrong advertisement.

    42. And now: Here is Marcus along with his noble fans after he was chosen for the lead role in:
