Ferrari crew

  1. AAP Newswire, MELBOURNE:

    The Ferrari Formula 1 Team fired their entire pit crew yesterday.
    The announcement followed Ferrari's decision to take advantage of the
    Australian Government's Youth Opportunity scheme and employ people from Frankston.

    The decision to hire them was brought on by a recent documentary on how
    unemployed youths from the Frankston area 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.

    John Howard went on record as saying this was a bold move by the Ferrari
    management, which demonstrated the international recognition of
    Australia's employment practices under his Liberal government. As most
    races are won and lost in the pits, Ferrari now have an advantage over
    every team.

    However, Ferrari may have got more than they bargained for......At the
    crew's first practice session, the Frankston pit crew successfully
    changed the tyres in under 6 seconds, and then within 12 seconds they
    had re-sprayed, re-badged, and sold the vehicle to the McLaren team for
    a slab of VB, a kilogram of speed and some photos of Montoya's
    girlfriend in the shower.
