Four World Champions in one season. The competition has bunched up considerably since the 80s of Piquet, Lauda, Rosberg and Prost. In a recent gathering, 2009 World Champion Jenson Button of McLaren, 2005 and 2006 World Champion Fernando Alonso of Ferrari, 7-time World Champion Michael Schumacher of Mercedes and 2008 World Champion Lewis Hamilton also of McLaren obliged media and fans for a photoshoot.
What these guys were thinking during that awkward moment one could only surmise as something like this:
Jenson: I could choke you, Fernando, right now.
Fernando: Michael, you'r hugging me too tight.
Michael: Lewis, nice glutes. We should work out together.
Lewis: Michael, you're my idol. I could kiss you right now.
Who's gonna take round 1? You're guess is as good as mine.
