    Yuki, that’s not water, it’s the sample for my drugs test…

  3. You only have to drive for a Red Bull team, not drink it

  4. Don’t worry kid, I’m sure you’ll make it to F1 when you grow up.

  5. Relax, nobody is forcing you to take off your platform shoes.

  6. Sainz – “I know. They have called me Jr my whole life.”

  7. “Using this technique, pressing here with just one finger, I can make you throw up”

  8. Yuki’s foray into buying NFT art came to an abrupt end when Carlos explained that people can simply right-click and save his image

  9. You’re time to be beaten by max will come.

    Yuki, I just got myself a PS5.

  12. …and that’s why I never drove a Redbull

  13. Yuki, Suzuka has also been cancelled in this year official F1 game

  14. Sorry man, should have warned you, hee hee this is Seb’s missing litre of fuel.

    1. hahah nice :)

  15. Let me ask my Dad.

    So, the good news is that you are staying at AT!
    The bad news is that you are staying at AT..

  17. You don’t need to crash for Max, I told Lafiti to do it, relax mate!

  18. Stop whining or I will smash you in the face with this bottle.

  19. I know you wish your car could go as fast as this parade truck, but someday Yuki …. someday!

  20. Don’t look down there Yuki.
    It disturbs me when you look down there and start crying.

  21. Yuki just found out that next year they’ll serve knödel and schnitzel instead of sushi in the motorhome.

  22. You put all your money into BitCoin Yuki?

  23. I’m sorry Carlos …. yes it was me that signed your shirt with lipstick.

    1. Surely you’re supposed to leave just one caption comment?

      1. Are we?
        Sorry I wasn’t aware of that if that is the case :(
        I just rattle them off as they occur to me.

        1. @nullapax I take my comment back then ;)

      2. @broke1984 @nullapax Nope, you can leave as many as you like. The only rule is RaceFans employees can’t win COTD… (sorry @willwood)

  24. Totally unrelated to the competition.
    Is there a story behind this picture? It really looks like Yuki is emotionally torn about something here.
    It even looks like there is snot hanging from his nose.

    Hopefully it is just one of those freak pictures that occur.

    1. My best bet is it was taken just in the right time. I have no idea where but it is a good photo for caption competition

      1. My best guess would be he was having a sneezing fit hence the snot and the screwed up face ;)

  25. Don’t worry, Marko hated me too. You just gotta leave and use your talents to find a better drive… on 2nd thoughts, that won’t work.
    Maybe try get Honda back again.

  26. Don’t cry Yuki, I’ll find your Mommy

  27. RedBulls revolving door is a smooooth operation

  28. Wax on, wax off… Eventually you will become a smooth operator too.

  29. There is no blue bottle. You drink from the red bottle – you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how season 4 of Drive to Survive ends.

    “Yuki you need a manager or someone fighting for you when you’re dealing with Dr Marko. My cousin has been amazing for me, have you got a cousin?”

    “Yeah!…. Uurm but she’s 12.”

  31. Sainz: “If you loved me you’d swallow it.”

  32. No Yuki, the barriers are NOT bouncy!

  33. Sainz: “I understand. Most people that see my thumb close up feel nauseous.”

    Impossible! How is he resisting my Vulcan nerve pinch?!

  35. Carlos: Don’t Get offended. It will be bad if you took Takuma as your master.
    Yuki: But he won Indy twice.
    Carlos: That was an oval going left only.

  36. Sorry Yuki, overtaking the wingman Mercedes add nothing to your pedigree

    Yuki tried to play it cool, but Carlos was convinced he’d found Kimi’s missing drink.

  38. What did Helmut say to you? Don’t worry, I’ll handle it.

  39. It’s okay Yuki, I was only joking. I’m not really going too tell your parents how bad your first season was.

  40. All Ferrari drivers drink their own urine to save weight in the car Yuki. But it’s really your fault for stealing my drinks bottle.

  41. Just promise not to try and overtake me, and I’ll give you the other half of your overalls back.

  42. Pierre looks silly, and you look just as silly for copying him. Now if you promise to turn your cap around I’ll release my Vulcan nerve pinch.

  43. You do know what Max says when asked to let you through, right?

  44. What, are you not a fan of Estrella Galicia 0,0?

    Relax! It’s just a little shoulder massage.. Trust me, I’m very good at this stuff!

  46. Oh you’ve got you nuts pinched in your zip, good job your balls aren’t the size of Max’s, that’d be real pain my little Muchacho.

  47. “Sainz’s photographer captures this very genuine moment”

    1. “I’m already in talks with Tost, so I can bail back here after I get pommeled by another team mate”

  48. Please Yuki you have to let it go, you’re holding it too tight. Trust me it won’t get any bigger you’re stuck with it so be proud of it.

    Yeah, from Ricciardo’s shoe! You like?

  50. Yuki, to motivate yourself, just do a shoey every time you fall behind Pierre.

  51. If you want to drive for Ferrari someday, you’re going to have to get used to red wine.

    It’s yucky, right?

  53. Yuki has high hopes of landing a Red Bull drive, but Carlos tells him not to hold his breath.

  54. Oppa Gangnam Style……

  55. Yuki, the wall is not your friend… *I* am your friend.
