Breaking news: Ferrari sacks entire pit crew

The Ferrari F1 team fired their entire pit crew yesterday.

This announcement followed Ferrari's decision to take advantage of the
British government's 'Work for the Dole' scheme by employing some
Liverpudlian youngsters.

The decision to hire them was brought about by a recent documentary on
how unemployed youths from Toxteth were able to remove a set of wheels
in less than 6 seconds without proper equipment, whereas Ferrari's
existing crew could only do it in 8 seconds with millions of pounds
worth of high tech equipment.

It was thought to be an excellent, bold move by the Ferrari management
team as most races are won and lost in the pits, giving Ferrari an
advantage over every other team.

More than they bargained for:

However, Ferrari got more than they bargained for at the crew's first
practice session where the youngsters were given their first chance to
impress the team bosses.

Not only was the scouse pit crew able to change all four wheels in
under 6 seconds, but within 12 seconds they had re-sprayed, re-badged
and sold the car to the Mclaren team for 8 cases of Stella, a bag of
weed and some photos of Coulthard's bird in the shower.

Luca Montezemolo, president of Ferrari, was unavailable for comment at
the close of the session and was believed to be in heavy negotiation
with McLaren for the return of the car.
