In conjunction with the 2015 Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix, Jerrica Leong has decided to compile the five most memorable team radio broadcast for you, just for laughs. 

 
Since team radio started broadcasting on international television, we have heard a number of funny radio conversations between the drivers and their engineers. The most funny of which was when Rubens Barrichello, who was then driving an underperforming BAR Honda, was told that if he can catch his rival in front he would be in the points and Barrichello had replied his engineer “You wish.”
 
Of course we can’t forget the hilarious replies Kimi Raikkonen gave to his engineer in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix when he was in the lead. I’m sure I don’t have to illustrate it and you are already smiling away at that memory.
 
There seem to be more memorable team radio conversations than there was in the past five years, so here are the five most memorable convos between driver and engineer from the Malaysia GP.
 
No.1
“Can I pass these people, because they are not even trying to catch the safety car.”
-Kimi Raikkonen

No.2
“Hey man! Don’t talk to me when I’m in the corners, I nearly just went off!”
-Lewis Hamilton

No.3

“I know you don’t want to hear this, but I don’t think I’m going to make it to the end.”
-Nico Hulkenberg 

No.4
“I’m a little surprise, we seem to be catching cars – quite a few cars…” 
-Jenson Button

No.5

“Your deg (degradation) is still good.” 
-Perez’s engineer
Sergio Perez’s reply “So why am I still going so slow?”
