  1. I thought at least one of us would have had a podium by now.

    1. This! Not going to even bother try

  2. Come on, we need upgrades, not new fancy glasses.

    1. Or: Told you, we would have needed upgrades, not just new fancy glasses.

  3. “Guenther – please don’t sneeze like that.
    It always does this to my hair and glasses”

  4. You could have used less colorful language when telling Hass what we need to improve!

    1. Hulk : Without you and your swear jar, Haas will be further away from the swear jar
      Steiner : I don’t give a….

  5. Will you still be on DTS?

  6. Doesn’t Gene know your swear jar makes up half the budget?

  7. Don’t worry Guenther, they booted me but I’m back, I’ll see you in a couple of years.

  8. Your contract hasn’t been renewed. You’ve not been sacked. Just keep coming in doing whatever it is you do.

  9. Guenther, I already told you, I already have a personal assistant!

  10. It’s not you, it’s me

  11. Why are you sending my paycheck via Moneygram? Don’t you know they take a cut?

  12. NH: so what are you going to do?
    GS: I’ve been asked to be a pundit on Channel 4 in the UK.
    Narrator: In other news, Channel 4 is moving all F1 coverage to after the watershed.

  13. “Make sure not to break the door on your way out.”

    1. “Don’t break the door on your way out” is probably better.

  14. Guenther, was it really wise to give Gene a case of Rich Energy for Christmas?

  15. Yes (@come-on-kubica)

    Do not f*k smash my door.

  16. ‘Listen Guenther. It’s only a matter of time until someone at Aston Martin catches COVID and that’s when you strike and get your foot in the door.”

  17. As a leaving gift, we’ve put together a highlights reel of your greatest achievements as team principal. Do you have a spare 17 seconds to watch it before you go?

    1. lol…we’re still searching

    Maybe ve cud be a couple ov vokkstarrs in Formula E

  19. I’m really sorry Guenther, but Gene was most insistent. You can’t keep the shirt.

  20. Steiner – “Let’s keep in touch can we exchange numbers?”
    Nico – “Numbers? Yeah sure…..ahh you know its the damnedest thing, I didn’t bring my phone with me today.”
    Steiner – “Do you know your number?”
    Nico – Ahh no. No, no I definitely don’t know it. Ahh yeah, stay in touch good idea. How about I send you a Christmas card.”

  21. Nico: “Mum said she met you on New Years Eve 1986. Is that true?”
    Steiner: “Ehhhh…”

  22. “If your ever replaced as Team Principle, I’ll be making the case to the new guy that I think I can lift my left arm without the assistance of my right arm.”

  23. – They sent me to tell you there’s no place on the flight home, but if you’re quick you can cadge a ride on one of the trucks.

  24. “Yeah, I’m sorry to say this, but this is Formula One. Whenever we find a part which is slowing the car down we have to replace it with something better. Gene has decided the Team Principal is the part slowing the car down.”

  25. Just learned that Esteban Gutierrez parents have a bakery and they are hiring. But as a loader.
