Caption Contest: #72

The seventy-second photograph to feature in BlogF1’s caption contest. You know the drill, think of something funny and witty to say and leave it as a comment below. Fernando Alonso recently returned to his native Spain after the 2008 season closed, and here the double world champion is helping out the Spanish arm of the United Nations Children’s Fund UNICEF as part of a campaign organised by Renault sponsor ING.

    The KERS system collects kinetic energy, kinetic energy, kinetic energy, the KERS system collects the kinetic energy, all day long.

  • I thought when I saw Lewis flying in that theatre show that leaving McLaren at least meant I didn’t have to look stupid in any PR stunt

  • And here I was upset about having my Mercedes SLK taken off me, and having to drive the Renault Megane again. Shouldn’t have complained about that !

  • In order for other teams not to back-out F1, new car regulations were given out this year to cut down the cost…

    Are you guys trying to compete with the Onion? LOL

    just one more reason to vote for Blog F1 as site of the year for the Webbies!

    Oh, and have you entered the SXSW Web site competition? Its held in Austin, TX in early March… check it out:


  • @carldec: Hehe, dicey equipment indeed!

    No, I’m not trying to compete with the onion – do they do a caption contest as well?

    Thanks for the vote, and I know about SXSW (or at least, all the after-show parties), just not sure if BlogF1 is really up to that standard yet. But thanks for the vote of confidence, it all helps. 🙂

    Edit: I completely got the wrong end of the stick with carldec’s comment above and thought there was a weird bug with the website and edited it. After emailing carldec I now realise my error and have reinstated the original comment and added some formatting at carldec’s suggestion. 🙂

The Renault team was unmoved, and was claiming that Lewis should lose three grid spots in the next race. Insiders say that had the bus been run by Scuderia, painted red and driven by Massa, the stewards would have ruled in Ferrari’s favour.
