Racing News: Ferarri Fires Its Entire Pit Crew sac

    In a press conference yesterday, F1 team boss, Ross Braun, confirmed
    that Ferrari had fired their entire pit crew. The announcement was
    followed by Ferrari's decision to take advantage of the UK Government's
    "Modern Apprenticeship" and hired unemployed youths from Merseyside and
    Mosside just north of London.

    The decision to hire them was brought on by a documentary on how
    unemployed youths from the North of England were able to remove a set of
    car wheels in less than 6 seconds without proper equipment, whereas
    Ferrari's existing crew could only do it in 8 seconds with all the mod con
    tools. This was thought to be an excellent yet bold move by Ferrari
    management, as most races are won and lost in the pits, they would have
    an advantage over every team.

    However Ferraris expectations were easily exceeded, as during the
    first practice session with the new North of England crew, not only did
    they change the tyres in under six seconds but within twenty seconds
    they had the car re-sprayed, re-badged and sold to the McLaren Team for
    four dozen cans of Tennents Super.
