Di Resta is surprised Force India hasn't told him who has drawn the other drawing.

Somewhere in another dimension Sabrina is complaining that Whitmarsh and Button sabotaged Lewis' Crayons.

Button keeps dropping his crayons. He doesn't have enough grip.

Shouldn't paddy be doing the drawing? Maybe he just goes to whoever can buy him the nicest crayons


Kamui is asking Japanese children to lend him theirs.

Back to they never stopped. Red Bull did it with Newey and his team, Ferrari did it with Pat Fry, McLaren with a few of their guys. Nothing new or old.

Hamilton and Alonso copied each others drawings, saying that they couldn't decide which were the best.

The funniest bit about this whole drawing thing is that Newey would still win because he still actually does design his car using a proper drawing. He doesn't like computers for his drawings.

just seems like this year it is more than ever. I think for years we were used to 2 teams doing this, then RB stepped in as a big spender a few years back and now Mercedes is throwing cash....

I am curious if the money limit they are trying to put in place has anything to do with these positions as well? they must be spending a truck load on front office people

Karthikeyan asked HRT about his drawing and at the last minute they gave him a drawing of a pickle.

Not so fast!

The other teams would call for an investigation into the flexibility of Newey's paper. ;)

Newey would probably bend his paper a bit to gain aero advantage. He could also add a few "holes-but-not-holes" in the paper. :-P

Lewis was told he'd get a better grade if he drew a different rear wing on his car, but it was graded lower because he slow to turn it in.

Nick Heidfeld was decent at drawing even though he never won a single competition. During his last attempt , the drawing accidently caught fire.

Mike Coughlan drew his McLaren drawing but gave it to Ferrari instead.

Rubens Barrichello's drawing was suspiciously smudged by what looks like tears...

Narain Karthikeyan drew a cucumber.

Nico Rosberg's drawing wasn't as good as his dad's.

Jacques Villeneuve's drawing was given a gold star but many think his dad's was a much more edgey artistic effort, and should have deserved more plaudits.

we have seen many times that simply going out and gathering a huge talent pool does not gel well. See Ferrari many times. The trick is to find your main piece to the puzzle and build a team around him/her a la Newey type system.

Kimi told his teacher to leave him alone with his crayons, he knew what he was drawing....but then he got to the end of the paper and ran out of room to finish it :(

Nelson Piquet Jr's drawing was crumpled up by Bad Man Briatore and thrown at the wall.

Yuji Ide had his drawing confiscated by the FIA.

Jarno Trulli's drawing held up all the other drawings.

Ralf Schumacher's drawing was in the shadow of his brother's drawing.

This is David Coulthard's drawing's year.

Aryton Senna's drawing clashed with Alain Prost's drawing.

Nelson Piquet Sr hated Nigel Mansell's drawing and thought his wife's was ugly.

Not at all.

Ron Dennis didn't do a drawing. He wrote an essay instead.

Derailed? You're right, we should go back to talking about Johnston's daughter's drawing only. It is harder to keep with that and be funny. Its been too easy since deviating from that.

Goooood, didn't want anyone coming in here and derailing our threads. :proud:
Back on topic though...

Heikki Kovalainen feels his paper wasn't as good as Lewis' when they sat together.

Mark Webber is unhappy that his paper was taken off him and given to Vettel to draw on.

The whole paddock knows Briatore gave Schumacher special drawing paper in the 90's but no one can prove it.


Also people seem to think Vettel needs special crayons in order to draw well, despite drawing well in an inferior...drawing?


...

I suck at this.

Ricardo Rosset's drawing didn't qualify.

Lewis Hamilton's drawing is under investigation by the stewards.
