    Daniel: If I was a quarterback my stats would be off the charts…
    Lando: Yeah you’ve only been sacked once all season!

  3. In a welcome change of fortunes, Daniel completed a pass…

    1. Brilliant. Was it a free pass or with a penalty?
      In F1 there’s a lot of incomplete passes these days.

  4. Daniel: Lando I think I got a chance to play for Green Bay Packers. Do think I would be better than Arron Rodgers?
    Lando: I think you would play better than Arron Rodgers since you only got sacked once and Arron got sacked too many times.

  5. Mclaren’s efforts training Lando pay back even when he was out of the car

  6. Zak told me that’s how you play this game: one of us stay behind while the other one runs away!

  7. Footage reveals extreme toe-in on Ricciardo in a bid to finally improve rotation.

  8. Ricciardo: “I’d much rather be playing with a Red Ball…”

  9. Lando stretches his legs, whilst Daniel plays catch-up

  10. A strong return from Lando might push Ricciardo out of the picture

  11. Daniel clung to the hope that Lando would slip up in 2022, but there was no way Norris was going to drop the ball.

  12. Daniel attempts the pass, but wheel alignment shows him going offf track – again.

  13. You take the set-up ball, no you take the set-up ball…….

  14. “That’s not volley ball” “It’s football” “Not football” “Tis” “Tisn’t” “Not allowed to use hands in football” “American Football” “Didn’t say it was American Football”
    Zak Brown: Aren’t you guys supposed to be working on your team work?

  15. DR: Watch the ball mate, not my shoes! Only I can pull off wearing brogue ankle boots over a track pant without even breaking a sweat.
    LN: Do you also wear them during race day?
    DR: May be (chuckles)
    LN: Well, all the best cooling your heels after 2022 F1 season. Wear them to bath too if you want!
    DR: (talking to himself) Yeah, like hell! Will drive past you in an RBR in one of these races and you keep wondering what was me wearing.

  16. Meanwhile, the Ferrari guy watching these two and wondering: “Why do these 2 Mclaren blokes always come and play ball in front of Ferrari garage?”

  17. Nothing seems to go right for Danny Ric in 23, as he tries to throw a beach ball to Lando, but it flies off backwards into the distance.

  18. Lando may have come out ahead on track, but Daniel is the clear winner in the annual McLaren ‘Awkward Stance’ competition.

  19. After Formula E, F1Esports and others Mclaren is building another new team in the Pit Wall Ball championship.

  20. McLaren’s Pitlane Ball’s Up

  21. McLaren’s official supplier of black pants didn’t feel the marketing shots had come out as well as they had hoped.

  22. Danny Ric going for a Hail Mary to save his career…

  23. I think we need to reboot it.
    That coloured dusk isn’t moving at all.

    1. I’ve either become an honorary N Z citizen or auto fix whatever has changed disc to dusk. Sigh

  24. Alpine were furious to find, yet again, one of their playthings left out unattended got grabbed up by McLaren.

    1. good one!

  25. Here comes a porpoise!
