The Ferrari Formula 1 Team sacked its entire pit crew yesterday.
The announcement followed Ferrari's decision to take advantage
of the UK Government's Youth Opportunity Scheme and employ
people from Liverpool.
The decision to hire them was brought on by a recent
documentary on how unemployed youths from Liverpool area were able to
remove a set of wheels in less than six seconds without proper
equipment, whereas Ferrari's existing crew can only do it in eight

However, Ferrari may have got more than they bargained for.
At the crew's first practice session the Liverpool pit crew

vehicle to the McLaren Team for eight bottles of Stella, a kilo of
speed and some photos of Coulthard's bird in the shower.
