    “Wanna see a magic trick?”
    “Yeah sure..”
    “I bet I can make that car go faster without touching it.”
    “You’re on”

    Pirelli realise the tyre problem is worse than they thought, as Mercedes becomes the first Constructor to win the Monaco Grand Prix not knowing their lefts from their rights.

    “Be careful Nico, they are really fragile.”

    “So, did they offer to hire you yet?”

    P.H: “Soak it up Lads this is the last time we’ll be coming here for a while….”

    So which job did Toto give you next year, Tyre Manager?

    You’re right Paul, it’s better we watch the race from here, rather than having Tapas on the boat Mercedes bought us across the way.

    Round and round and round they go, Nico hasn’t stopped yet, let’s hope nobody knows.

    “Do you think they will be more or less mad than they are now when they find out we’re giving them square tyres next year?’

    It seemed like yesterday when I saw that car at barcelona.
