    PH: “So these new tyres only explode when you press that red button, okay?”
    BE: “Won’t I get to jail for that?”
    PH: “Nah.”

  2. Paul: “These tyre explosions look a bit dangerous.”
    Bernie: “Take this bribe and blame something else.”

  3. Paul: So Bernie, what about the contract for 2014?
    Bernie: Yes about that, you guys don’t get to do the tyres next year, but you get to do the calender.

    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 ..

  5. Thanks Bernie. Everyone knows the brand now. Earlier it was all about cars and drivers. Now the cars and drivers are only there to transport the tires around the track.

    PH: “Want this spare set for your getaway car?”
    BE: “No thanks. When the German authorities come, I might have to run farther than 25 miles.”

  9. PH: Who’s the boss now?

    Bernie: Not now Paul, I’ve got 26 million problems and your tyres aren’t one!

    Ecclestone: “Don’t give my daughter’s new husband any of your Pirelli condoms. I’m not ready for guaranteed grand children.”

    Be: “Paul can you make my bribery case degrade into thin air?”

    Bernie: “Ooh, me like … *Naughty face* …”

    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!”
