  1. Good luck for the run & the season (translated from French, given their mutual native language).
    I wish I could be more creative, though, which I can with some other random images.

  2. I put a good word for you, Fred. Now, are we clear about Carlos?

  3. Jeez Charles, I thought your head had come off.

  4. You couldn’t give us a hand getting out the car mate?

  5. They thought the payoff had gone unnoticed …. but they were being watched!

  6. “Give me a pay rise or I’ll break your thumb”

  7. …same as the old boss.

  8. “Champagne is a drink that tastes best when you win.”

    Fred couldn’t wait to show off the golden handshake Ferrari had offered him

  10. Beat Carlos into turn one and I’ll make you the #1 driver.

  11. After his comments about there being no number one driver, Frederic double-checks that the gloves are off between Charles and Carlos.

  12. After the pleasantries, Vasseur and Leclerc set about trying to make the FIA’s new helmet camera less draggy…

    “So, which one of us do you think will stay with the team for longer?”

  14. Here’s a fiver to wash my car.

  15. “…what? No, I don’t have a lifesaver with me.”

  16. “I would have preferred Jean Todt”
    “Sure, but he wouldn’t have fit in the car”

    Hi nice to meet you, they told me to come over for an eclair?

  18. Cause I got one hand in my pocket, and the other one’s giving a high five

  19. “Congratulations. You now drive for me. T-72.”

  20. “Do you forgive me? Don Vasseur?”

  21. I learned this from the Americans. Pull my finger.

  22. Don’t reach in any further Fredric. That’s not where my helmet cam is located.

  23. “Hi ya Fred! I hate to say it, but I’m told the new boss is going to be here today, otherwise I’d ask you to stay and have a chat and show you around the place.”

  24. “It was from our new sponsor, Nivea. Soft as a baby’s, right?”

    “I look forward to our two or three years together.”

  26. “and Sainz is Barrichello.”

  27. After being told of his #1 driver status, Charles took Fred’s advice to keep a lid on it way too literally.

  28. Leclerc – “Let’s give Carlos the ‘preferred’ strategies that I received last season”

  29. Frederic: How long do I need to stay in this mannequin challenge? I have to go to the bathroom.
