    Am I still in time? Didn’t expect Australia to be that far!

  2. Pierre and his Pierre-piece – bromance of the year.

    If I get over there quickly enough I think I can hit Esteban.

  4. All that was left of the crashed Alpine down under was the skid block which Pierre put to use to go surfing.

  5. Many thought Pierre was washed up after losing his seat at Red Bull, but here we are 4 years later and he’s still well and truly afloat!

  6. Pierre is running away from the competition.

  7. Evidence emerges of the source of water on the brain that caused Gasly’s crash

  8. “Pits to Pierre – Potential Porpoising Problems?”

  9. “Still too early to switch to inters…”

    Jaws music intensifies as Pierre closes in on Esteban’s girl.

  11. Pierre’s been creative at getting around CFD limitations.
    – “I am a pure machine, so we’re doing some MFD work”

  12. Pierre is relieved that Alpine’s sponsor is BWT rather than Petronas

  13. Pierre is in love with his reflection and always posting shirtless selfies and other nonsense. I’ve always thought he looked like a hick, but apparently he has a big following of people who think he’s extremely attractive.

  14. Pierre was told that if he paddles without getting his face or hair wet, 4 penalty points would be knocked off his licence

  15. After repeated fan backlash for rain affected sessions being red flagged, the FIA commited to allowing more wet races, no matter the conditions.

    Run out or gas.

  17. Pierre just learned why the team nicknamed him “shark bait”.

  18. Rumour has it that the FIA has taken up climate protection a notch now that Pierre’s alpine skiing trip failed miserably.

    I am the Pilot Whale!
    Le Grand Dauphin!
    Stop being orca-ward
    Cry harder, Esteban!

  20. As he began the lengthy journey to the pool bar, Pierre remained adamant that he had not built his pool too big.

    Pierre cooley escapes the sinking ship that is Alpha Tauri.

  22. Yes! This has to be Miami!

  23. Pierre finds himself leading the surfing competition after a stoppage allows him to change boards without needing to come in.

  24. Aquaplaning! Aquaplaning!

  25. Made it all the way to Australia and didn’t even get my hair wet, I am the most interesting man in the world…

  26. Pierre: This place better not be the set for that “SHALLOWS” sequel. Is that Richard Dreyfuss?
