  1. Last meal you served me gave me appendicitis

  2. No Red Bulls for me, last time around I grew chicken wings!

  3. I’m sorry I thought I didn’t need my wallet as I was told my meal was being paid for by the Red Bull hospitality budget

  4. “Yes, Nyck De Vries bought me the ticket here. No, Monza’s next weekend isn’t it? Why do you ask?”

  5. Yes Alex, it is very taste, we call it the ‘lean mean appendix cuisine!’

  6. Red hair, dude you have to try it

  7. Can you believe it, couple of Michelin stars and this guy starts lecturing me on tyre management

  8. “Thanks Gordon but no thanks,
    I don’t think your tips on how to be an immature foul mouthed bully will help me next season.”

  9. As Gordon Ramsey relays the menu to Alex, Romain Grosjean is making preparations in the kitchen.

    1. Properly chucked at that, sorry I pressed report by accident XD

      1. CHUCKLED! Oh my fat fingers.

  10. No thanks, I really prefer my lamb without sauce

  11. Sorry Gordon, when I check out the starters I only ever look at the bottom of the list.

    Sorry Gordon we don’t have any catering jobs at Williams, I hear Red Bull have a big catering budget though.

      Sorry discard this. Wasn’t intentionally a copy of one above.

  13. ‘No raw stuff for me’ – I couldn’t really come up with anything more creative, but truthfully, I hope the entire occasion involving F1 people dining got filmed for the HK series so that I could enjoy the hilariousness involved at some point.

    “No, no, take-away is fine. Yeah, I know, show. You don’t really think that we still actually race, do you?”

  15. “Yeah I remember you from the lunch menu in school.”

    Ah sir you’ve picked the red to accompany your meal this week. Excellent choice.

  17. Hey Alex, Helmut said you’d be better off with something bland.

  18. “HEY ALBON!!!…Excellent job in that Williams seat”

  19. No! No, thank you I’ll “Pass” on the Shunting Sandwich…

  20. No swearing allowed for Ramsay? A fantasy thread.

  21. Now I’m sorry sir, but this is the last time I will tell you to %@*$ off. This isn’t a merit based restaurant, someone has paid for this seat.

  22. Alex: “Yeah, yeah, Innovations Award for Gordon, that’s what I heard. The FIA will give you a trophy. On Sunday, don’t forget it’s a black tie event, no weird skirts”.
    Gordon: “I’ve never, ever, ever, ever met someone I believe in as little as you”.

  23. “So what happens is, I go into a well-established but failing business and yell at them until they start to get things right.”

    “That’s great, Alex, but I just asked to take your order.”

  24. GR: Alex, I see that you haven’t ordered anything at all?
    AA: Yeah, I’m hearing that 2023 Williams is going to be overweight again. So really need to weigh like paper this time if I have to have any hope to get into top 10 finishers.

  25. Gordon Ramsay had to come out personally to remind drivers their steaks do not come “medium-softs”.

  26. Even with the lack of tyre tests, drivers weren’t too keen to learn pirelli had taken the opportunity to supply their C1 C2 and C3 “steaks”.

  27. Don’t tell me to $#@-+n chill Alex, that’s for bloody wine. And I don’t ,$&-(*!$@ care if he’s your mate or not if he doesn’t put that phone away I’m gonna rip it off him and shove it &__ up your .&_&&-+$.

  28. The drivers were really keen to find out more about the Michelin star system, until Gordon explained to Alex it wasn’t about tyres.

  29. “No no, I said the menu was hit. A hit.”

  30. Alex asked Gordon if his restaurant had at least 5 Pirelli Stars since he was contractually forbidden from using Michelins, and he didn’t want to run out before the meal was over.

  31. “Snddjccdhddd…sorry, sorry’. ‘Water please”.

  32. Ramsay – “You were bland, under seasoned and under cooked at Red Bull… and Max still ate you for breakfast”
    Albon – “Have you met Nicky Latifi?”

  33. I don’t care who you are, the sauce needs more salt!

  34. Alex Albon: PLEASE!!!! PLEASE!!!! I HAD ENOUGH OF EARFULS!!! 1ST, JON TAFFER, NOW YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
