Ferrari Sacks Entire Pit Crew
Why young people almost make better pit stop crews

Liverpool, England 25-Jan-2006 [JP]: The Ferrari Formula 1 team fired their entire pit crew yesterday. The announcement followed Ferrari’s decision to take advantage of the UK government’s youth opportunity scheme and employ young people from Liverpool.

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

Prime Minister Tony Blair went on record as saying this was a bold move by Ferrari management which demonstrated the international recognition of the UK under New Labor.

As most races are won and lost in the pits, Ferrari now has the advantage over every other team. However, Ferrari may have got more than they bargained for. At the crews first practice session the Liverpool pit crew successfully changed the tires in under 6 seconds, but within 12 seconds they had re-sprayed, re-badged and sold the vehicle to the Mclaren team for 8 bottles of Bud, 12 wraps of speed, and some photos of David Coulthard’s girlfriend in the shower.
