The Ferrari Formula 1 Team fired their entire Pit Crew yesterday. The announcement followed Ferrari's decision to take advantage of the Australian Govenment's Work for the Dole Scheme and hire unemployed aboriginal youths. The decision to hire them was brought on by a recent documentary, where aboriginal youths were able remove a set of car wheels in less than six seconds, without proper equipment, whereas Ferrari's existing crew can only do it in eight seconds, with millions of dollars of hi-tech gear. This was thought to be an excellent, yet bold move by Ferrari Management. as most races are won or lost in the pits, Ferrari would have an advantage over every other team. However, Ferrari got more than they bargained for. During the aboriginal's first practice session, not only were the Crew able to change the tyres in under six seconds, but within twenty seconds, they had resprayed, rebadged and sold the vehicle to the McLaren Team for four slabs of VB, two cartons of Winfield Blue and five litres of metholated spirits.
