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". (GMM)
