Bernie Ecclestone has this week delighted his Christmas card recipients with his latest humorous handiwork.
Every year, the F1 chief executive commissions an original cartoon for his annual card, depicting a contemporary F1 issue with a mischievous tilt. For the 2012 holiday season, the 82-year-old’s card shows Lewis Hamilton abandoning his broken-down McLaren and leaping into a Mercedes saloon.
The silver road car is being driven by the red-capped Niki Lauda, and in the passenger seat is a big golden bag of cash for Briton Hamilton.
They are bound for Stuttgart, which according to the roadside sign is “Not far”.
Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg also amused his fans this week with his own Christmas message.
The German posted a Youtube video depicting him riding a rodeo bull. See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4vvmA4_ER8
