Touring the Everglades, he came across this peculiar obstacle blocking the road along with professional wakeboarder Parks Bonifay.

    Mike Krock was determined to provide the best car for Sebastian Vettel.

  2. Sorry, Checo, it’s just our Minister of Defence wanting to meet you.

  3. Red Bull’s allegations towards others came back to haunt them in Miami.

    1. Borrowing from @brickles entry below, it maybe works better as:
      “Toto’s allegations stopped Red Bull dead in their tracks”

    Come on, get out of here! We already solved the porpoise problem!

    1. Nice one! Winning caption imo!

  6. “Thank you for your offer Mr Alligator, but the teams have to get rid of the porpoises humanly.”

    “None shal pass …”

  12. “Daniel! You forgot your pet here!”

  13. You probably forgot all about Bernie Ecclestone’s breakaway F1 series, but even at 165 years old he’s still searching for new ways to improve the show

  14. Mr Scallywag
    30th April 2022, 11:48

    Bernie, get back to retirement.

    Unsafe release in the petlane.

    1. Nice one

  16. SP: „Where are those wings when you need them?“

  17. Richard Hill

    Perez was repeatedly reporting the front end was just far too snappy to make progress

  18. This was exactly the scenario Pirelli’s new tread pattern was designed for.

  19. Bruh, eating Checo won’t give you wings!

  20. Wow, that RB7 sure looks like a dinosaur.

  21. Florida man arrested after drinking 48 energy drinks and seen allegedly helping Sergio Perez get his Red Bull Racing Car a lap ahead of Monster Energy Mercedes.

  22. Sergio was slightly taken aback upon coming across his first South Florida crossing guard.

    Tantalisingly close to Mexico, Sergio must be wondering “Why aren’t one of the junior drivers doing this?”

  24. The new Miami track is taking ‘aggressive kerbs’ to a whole new level.

  25. MB (@muralibhats)

    I heard Red Bull gives you wings! I am starving.

  26. Perez tests sausage kerb replacement.

  27. Hey Dude, Michael Masi told us “this ist a motorace!”

  28. An hazard greater than Sainz jr.

  29. Sergio Perez – ‘I am not in danger; I am the danger.’

  30. I know, I’m getting nostalgic for the 13 inch rims too…

  31. Perez: “I said I wanted to stay in a GATED community…”

  32. Checo: “I guess it makes a change from porpoising.”

  33. -I think something is crawling in front of me.
    -Be carefull Checo it’s not a Mercedes this time.

  34. After forgetting to take his stabilisation pills, Red Bull’s Dr Helmut Marco assumes his true physical form.

  35. Five seconds penalty for unsafe release.

    The crowds are wild in anticipation.

  37. Where’s Crocodile Dundee when you need him?

  38. Red Bull practicing just in case if a gator is on the loose on the race track during the GP.

  39. Mr. gator the only spectator in the Miami GP.

  40. Sergio lost positions at the start when he struggled to find the biting point.

  41. Why do they still use such old cars for promos? V8 engine maybe?

    1. RocketTankski
      30th April 2022, 18:20

      Aggressive looks, broad snout, fearsome noise, killer handling. Leathery skin?

  42. No you may not overtake the safety car before the restart!

  43. Red Bull’s B-spec car has a remarkably low ride height, but they claim to have taken “active and extreme measures” to prevent porpoising.

  44. Finally, someone at Red Bull with a thick skin.

  45. Look buddy, Checo just drives the car. You want the guy over there. His name is Christian. But I tell you he won’t like “Gatorade gives you jaws” either.

  46. Werner Hohler
    30th April 2022, 19:06

    Try a Red Bull, gives you wings, so you can get out of the way.

  47. Ferrari are that way

  48. Red Bull Powertrains is ahead of the curve on the 2026 engine regulations: their new power unit has tight packaging, no MGU-H, and runs on 100% biofuel. On an unrelated note, they’re looking for a steady supply of raw meat.

    Once again, the FIA got the placement of a sausage kerb all wrong.

      Good one

  51. They wouldn’t ask Max to do this!

  52. See you later alligator…

  53. The FIA dismissed any accusations of overlooking safety concerns when green-lighting new tracks.

  54. Tell Christian we were wrong — we did not find Geri’s handbag lying across the road.

  55. Helmut ! out of the road!

    Having tolerated the wakeboarding, one of the local residents felt that staging motorsports was a step too far and began a road blocking protest.

    Florida Man Charged with Charging Tolls on Miami Roads Using Alligator Enforcers

    1. Florida Man
      1st May 2022, 18:07

      He’s been busy:

  58. Mercedes solved the porpoising and can run as low as they wanted in a bid to be and stay ahead of RedBull

  59. EffWunFan (@cairnsfella)
    1st May 2022, 8:30

    Perez began to suspect Parks’ claims that wakeboarding was more dangerous than F1 when the alleged ‘threat’ was made to sit, stay, lie down, and then fetch.

  60. Sorry Check, but the alligator is serving a time penalty for an unsafe release from the Everglades.

  61. That’s not a track limit, that’s a track enforcer!

  62. “Michael Masi, you are sabotaging the race again!”

  63. Roth Man (@rdotquestionmark)
    1st May 2022, 12:00

    I don’t care if it’s a promo, get that prehistoric thing out of here! We’ve been using hybrid power since 2014 now.

    Lewis finds a way to slow down the Red Bulls.

  65. Coventry Climax
    1st May 2022, 13:49

    It was for good reason that for this event, the halo was mounted underneath the car.

  66. A rare show of solidarity as F1 unveils their new sustainable tarmac free future tracks, Pirelli shows they’re already all over it, and not to be outdone Liberty resurrects the hugely popular 60 odd year old Wally Gator to spice up the show.

  67. Don’t worry we’ll get Jos or Helmut to scare it off.

  68. Always knew porpoising would come in useful

  69. Heh Christian, these tyres don’t seem to have as much bite.

  70. Okay Checo, we just need to test the bite point one more time.

  71. AmericanF1

    The stewards were at a loss when a Florida Man and his pet wandered on to the track.

    F1 organizers were a bit dubious of the new track marshal who only answered to “Florida Man”.

    Checo just kept screaming into the mic, “Blue Flags! Blue Flags!”

    Liberty Media, “Well, that ought to get in the viewers here, what do you think about a cattle drive for COTA?”

    “The boot factory is that way, next to the Ostriches”!
