Barrichello was told to "kill" Heidfeld in 2006 Chinese GP

In the wake of the recent Ferrari radio call controversy it has emerged that such messages are not uncommon. During the 2006 Chinese Grand Prix Honda race engineer Jock Clear told Rubens Barrichello over the radio: "You made half a second in the first sector on Heidfeld. Now come on close him down and kill him before he gets up to temperature."

Well done Rubens, another miserable failure on your CV, you could have saved Renault a lot of trouble.
rubens   Rubens Barrichello
Well Michael, I don't think that I was supposed to take it literally, that would be unethical and besides everyone knows I am a really really nice guy.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Nice guys finish last, you're the living embodiment of that. That's your problem, ethics and taking things literally, like "number two status".
rubens   Rubens Barrichello
I just hope the Williams guys remember what a nice guy I am and decide not to take Kimi next year.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I am sure sense will prevail and they won't replace a seasoned journeyman with a former world champion, who has a burning competitive streak, who thrives on the thrill of battling the odds, and will inspire his team to sacrifice everything for him.
Williams   Frank Williams
Christ, maybe I should just pack it in.

This has been going on for years, Ayrton Senna didn't need his engineer to tell him, he just tried to do Prost in anyway.

Ou est l'office de tourisme?

What the frick?
prost   Alain Prost
Je voudrais un billet pour Paris s'il vous plait?
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Don't worry about it Hamilton, Prost hasn't been quite the same since that Senna movie came out.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
That Senna movie was awesome, except they didn't get me to play him. Then again, that might just have been too much Senna for the audience to handle.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
That's because it was a documentary Hamilton, you'll have to wait for the Walter Mitty version.
prost   Alain Prost
Senna, mon meilleur ami.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
No way dude, you're the frickin bad guy, go hang out with your friend Ballesteros.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
That's Balestre you idiot. Well Prost, rewriting history is fun. It was particularly touching when your buddy Ayrton tried to hug you against the pitwall in Estoril all those years ago.
