    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 on 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 tools, whereas Ferrari's existing crew can only do it in 8 seconds using 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 gotten more than they bargained for.
    At the crews first practice session, the Liverpool crew successfully changed the tires in under 6 seconds, but within 60 seconds they had re-sprayed, re-badged and sold the vehicle to the McLaren team for 8 bottles of Stella, a kilo of speed, and some photos of Coulthard's bird in the shower.
