That's pretty cute. But I'll have the leg up in my cover letter.

"I frequently make trips to Italy to bring back tanks of compressed air for my pirelli tires. Only the air from God's country is good enough for my Fiat 500 Abarth. My radiator fluid has been blessed by his holiness The Pope. I also chainsmoke Marlboro Reds and if hired will be shown doing so while analyzing tires on the FIA feed."

drat, the smoking thing hurts I will admit that, but the Pope is a countryman of mine.

And my other son, Morgan, dressed up as Felipe Massa for Halloween one year. Yeah, not Michael Schumacher for some reason. Still.

Toro Rosso needs to up its game significantly, there's been a significant Sebastian gap in the last 3 years.

Montoya's son is named Sebastian and he's karting. There's still time for Toro Rosso to pick him up before the new F1 age limit goes into place.

Ha ha, bollocks. Halliwell is just bitter because one of the greatest drivers of the past decade walked out on him and all he's left with is two "Number 2" drivers from third world countries.

You always just have to dig for the real point with Bernard.

The 84-year-old would look to introduce the changes for 2016, but added that the proposals could go away if the engine suppliers agree to reduce costs.

Bingo. He's bullying them into cheaper supply contracts.

The funny thing is that the Mercedes powertrain is the cheapest of the lot and the Renault one costs the most because of the cost of labour in France apparently.
