  1. Wanna see me make it dance?

  2. “So what i want you to do now is bend over really far and sloowly take down your overalls”

    1. Winner.

  3. Public still refuse to adhere to social distancing guidelines whilst queuing to get into the local supermarket.

  4. “Be honest guys… does my bum look big in this race suit?”

  5. Young driver the subject
    Of paparazzi fantasy
    They want him so badly
    Knows what a star he’s to be
    Inside him there’s longing
    This guy’s an open page
    Focusing, he’s so close now
    This driver is half his age

    Don’t stand to close to me
    His teammates are so jealous
    You know how bad drivers get
    Sometimes it’s not so easy
    To be the teacher’s pet
    Temptation, frustration
    So bad it makes them cry
    Wet chicane, podium’s waiting
    His car is warm and dry

    Don’t stand so close to me
    Loose talk in the paddock
    To hurt they try and try
    Strong words in the stewards room
    The accusations fly
    It’s no use
    He sees red
    He starts to shake and cough
    Just like the old man in
    That book by ‘drian Newey

    1. We are the crowd
      We’re c-coming out
      Got my flash on, it’s true
      Need that picture of you
      It’s so magical
      Comments so fanatical

      Helmet and cap
      Garage meticulous
      Not sure why that strap
      Photo of Max before us
      It don’t have a price
      Ready for those flashing lights
      ‘Cause you know that Max I

      I’m your biggest fan
      I’ll follow you til ur dad slaps me
      Boy, you’re a superstar
      You know that I’ll be
      Your papa-paparazzi
      Promise I’ll be kind
      But I won’t stop until that boy is mine
      Baby, you’ll be famous
      Chase you down til you turn to me

      I’ll be your girl backstage at your show
      Velvet ropes and guitars
      Yeah ’cause you’re my rock star in between the sets
      Eyeliner and cigarettes

      Tyres are burnt
      Brake car and we turn
      Wet tyres of dry
      Purple sectors, so fast I cry
      Watching you my Samurai
      ‘Cause you know that Max I

      1. The economy might tank during a lockdown, but it won’t stop the creatives to become even more annoyingly vocal.

  9. Check out these skidmarks!

  10. This is how everyone will see me from here on.

  11. Verstappen exclaimed, “I’m ready to go racing, even if I have to turn my back on the world!”. He then spun around to make his point.

  28. “Lewis, Lewis … you’re gonna have to do a lot better than “Look behind you” to get past me. Did you really think that old trick was gonna work on me?”

  29. “Mr. Horner, I don’t quite see how this will help me get the best of Lewis?”
    “No Max, I told you to try reverse *psychology*, not reverse photography!”

  30. It’s not everyday you get the view of the driver’s seat.

  31. It had become apparent to the journalists that Verstappen had fallen victim to the great Australian toilet paper shortage.

  32. Due to the lack of action the whole weekend in Australia, Max volunteered to entertain the locals with their favourite routine: Priscilla’s ping pong balls

  33. After dismissing it as bragging, Verstappen smuggly assembles the media to show why he calls it his “3rd leg”

  34. Max: Here it comes boys. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

  35. Without his face mask on, Max refused to face the media

  36. Max can sometimes come across as a bit of an .@rse in media sessions.
