    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!”

    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 “

    BE – I’ll slip you a few million if you can give me something to spice up the races: some exploding tyres perhaps?

    You let Mercedes test like that, really Paul are you as stupid as you look?

    BE: ‘Paul, if you’re looking for a job for next year, try CVC.’
    PH: ‘Why would I be looking for… Huh?’

    Can we please talk about 2014 Bernie?

    Between you and me, Paul, I’m beginning to lose interest in 2014.

    PH: oh look, a penny!
    BE: you’ll need it to compensate all those girls affected when your new range of condoms burst…

    So Bernie, did you ask your daughters about next years calender?

    For health and safety reasons, these tyres are pre-delaminated

    “… so, you see, Bernie, it’s not so difficult to walk out free of a tribunal.”
