    - These Pirelli tests are so secret !
    - Yeah. My wife thinks I’m cheating her, and she asks me to divorce.
    - We should tell the press, then.
    - Sure.

    Following the secret tyre test, Pirelli at long last acquired two trackside seats at the sold-out Monaco Grand Prix.

    “Sir,Please let go of my hand, I know you’re edgy each time a Mercedes goes past but I think we sorted those de-lamination issues out at that test last week.”
