    1. If you’re a good boy Lando and do good racing, you can play with your scooter or your ipad. But not both.

        1. The McLaren boys knew they shouldn’t have borrowed Renault kit when the satnav lady said “turn left here”.

          1. Dammit, that was supposed to be a new post.

      What do you mean, we should have turned left at Albuquerque?

      1. That made me laugh out loud – must be my age :)

        1. @ahxshades me too…Pismo Beach and all the clams you can eat

      “Its worth a lunge into here. I’m sure the stewards won’t give it too much thought …”

    4. – I have this Red Bull behind me, always behind me. No matter what I do, it is always behind me!
      – It’s OK, Lando, its gone, look. The race is over, it’s gone.

      Wow you really did have two tenths up your sleeves

      1. Very clever, i like it

      So to catch Lewis I need to enter on a scooter and make a fashion statement with my shirt?
      Strange how F1 works on Instagram.

    7. Norris: “The hills are alive with the sound of orange?”
      His engineer: “Not Macca orange, no”

        But I thought all those McLaren fans wanted me to make vests happen

        1. Look, I know it’s confusing, but that’s why we changed to this colour. That way we can always claim every fan dressed in orange is supporting us. Look how many there were, today!

    8. So you remember those Honda GP2 engines we had before? Now they win races and simulations have us behind this scooter here.

    9. Look Lando how many times do I have to tell you, it says it right there. “Guns are prohibited from the venue” Put them away.

    10. Look, Lando, if you have a car behind you here you cover the inside. Only an idiot would leave himself hung out to dry on the outside.

    11. Norris: “Wait, I thought you said we were going to the Norrisring”

      Engineer: “For the last time, that’s the Norisring and that’s in Germany, not Austria, please focus Lando.”

    12. “Oh look – that Williams we just overtook is catching up now we’ve stopped”

      1. Excellent – harsh, but excellent @nullapax

    13. Engineer: “Lando! All you do is make memes! I’m taking the iPad away!”
      Lando: “You mean like, FOREVER?!!”

      1. Winner, like stop the competition now

    14. Norris does his best to extend the summer break to three weeks.

      Are you going to press the ‘Vote For Kubica’ button or shall I?

      1. Oh yes – I like it :)

      2. LOL, nice!

      3. Oh thats good

    17. The McLaren boys knew they shouldn’t have borrowed Renault kit when the satnav lady said “turn left here”.

    18. The main objective is to never let Pierre Gasly pass you. ok?

    19. I thought you said we were going to climb every mountain and ford every stream

      Nando Solo once did the RedBull run in less than twelve parsecs

    21. And if you score no point here, you will have to wear these Lederhausen at the party and yodel

    22. “Please don’t tell Robert this, but how can F1 honestly believe 10,000 more people voted for him instead of Max?”

    23. “There’s no way anyone can overtake a car on this corner”.
      … “You said there was no way anyone could overtake on this corner and MAX DID, so that means you have to wash my car every week for the rest of this year!”

    24. “I have done it for the last three years: There’s no perceptible difference between us standing in front of a blue background and then adding an image of the Red Bull Ring and us being photographed on the race track there.”

    25. “Kimi was right all along, you’re still going to be driving around in that small car again this weekend…”

    26. “I don’t know if Michael Schumacher ever rode a bicycle around this track, but he won at this track … isn’t that good enough?”.

      See, Lando, it clearly says, “Women’s Sleeveless Shirt.”

    28. And as you can see here Lando, we are projected to be in Racefan’s Caption Competition 153.

      Norris’ race engineer:

      “So, Lando, does this look like the guy who stole your sleeves?

    30. “Looks like RaceFans is having another caption competition. Any ideas?”

      1. @ninjabadger I like this – I like this a lot :)

    31. Lando is trying to impress Mclaren by flexing his muscles.

    32. “Stop asking me why we did it. Look here. The CFD (cutting-off fabric design) readings clearly show: cutting your sleeves off will improve cooling. It’s just like what Mercedes did with their car’s bodywork.”

    33. If you can just tape this device onto your wheel you can Twitch stream your race AND see chat comments at the same time.

    34. Norris’s race engineer explains the secret of going fast in the middle sector.

    35. Lando showed he was willing to hang his elbows out at the corner

    36. To effectively cool Toto said to remove the bodywork not just the sleeves

    37. “This is how Max pulled this off. You can try it with the scooter first”…

    38. See lando? Roll those sleeves down, you look like an idiot..

    39. This is where Carlos is faster than you.

      I don’t understand. It clearly says this is where you started to lose your shirt.

    41. Anyway, that’s how they get the super start in Mario Kart. Reckon you can give it a try this weekend?

      “So Gasly will appear to be riding one of these bikes. Dont be deceived by the Red Bull livery”

    43. OK Lando, suggest you sit up in the seat if you can’t see the apex at this corner.

    44. Lando: “Jitterbug!”
