    53. Max: Chris said we’re to remove some of the less significant trophies so as to make more room for next year.
      Daniel: Do you think anyone remembers David Coulthard or Daniil Kvyat? Then slip a few of Seb’s trophies into the back room and we’re done!

    54. Santa and his elves realise the pewter mug they brought Christian Horner for Christmas isn’t going to cut it.
