  1. mizter E. Hi Paul .. what about your boss ? i see Italian judge pronounce à 2 year sentence for the telecom italia controversy ..
    signor Paul .. Yep .. Marco is ok, no jail for this 7 year old affair .. that’s cool … and now it will be an over 7 years delay for the second step of the process .. no problem bernie, .. he will be able to sign for 2014
    You Bernie, how is the process with the German court ?
    mizter E. .. well .. I am 82, 7 years for the first step of the process, 7 more for the second .. 82+ … 96 ..
    I think my kids will have spend all my money before the judgement .. not a matter ..
    all my best to Marco … take care and don’t forget to sign the new contract for the on track publicity .. for the next 14 years ..

        1. @tophercheese21 ah, I was wondering if you were inspired by one of Clarkson’s latest “some says”:

          “Some say that he breaks into people’s houses at night and leaves two mysterious extra keys in a kitchen drawer, and that as a result of buying Pirelli condoms this week, he now has seventeen children. All we know is he’s called The Stig!”

          1. @vettel1
            Haha, Clarkson is priceless!
            However, I stopped watching Top Gear a while ago. Mainly because here in Australia it has been moved to a channel that has ad breaks every 30 seconds. It’s kinda ruined it for me. :(

            We wont get to see the new episodes for another few weeks (at least!).

          2. @tophercheese21 that makes the BBC look excellent in comparison!

            I’ve always been frustrated that they continue to cut the number of episodes in a season and the number of seasons in a year though, it appears as if they are trying to get rid of it… :/

  2. Bernie – “What do I get for extending Pirrelli’s contract for a few more seasons?”
    Paul – “How about supersoft pillows in your jail cell?”
    Bernie – “I’ll pass… don’t want my head blowing off!”

  3. Paul: “You know you said I had to bribe the German team to do tyre testing?” Bernie: “Yes” Paul: “Well I promised they’d have a favourable outcome as they’re based in Britain” Bernie: “Oh why didn’t we just ask Michelin in 2010? I mean come on, even your trucks use their tyres and not yours!”

  4. Paul ” Good luck Bernie, I’ve heard those German prisons make you degrade quicker than a Pirelli on a Merc.
    Bernie ” No problem, 26 million euros will get the germans off my back and Fulda providing next years tyres “
