Formula 1 World Taken By Storm


The Ferrari Formula 1 Team fired their entire pit crew yesterday.
The announcement followed Ferrari's decision to take advantage of the
Scottish government's get back to work scheme and employ people from
Glasgow.

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

It was thought to be an excellent, yet bold move, by the Ferrari
management.

As most races are won and lost in the pits, Ferrari would have an
advantage
over every team.

However....Ferrari got more than they bargained for.

At the crew's first practice session, not only were the Glasgow pit
crew
able to change the tyres in under 6 seconds, but within 12 seconds they
had
re-sprayed, re-badged, and sold the vehicle over to the McLaren team
for 8
bottles of Stella, a kilogram of speed and some photos of Coulthard's
bird
in the shower.
