|F1: Ecclestone: No room for FOTA in F1
||by Mathias Olaf Uncertain

Batty Formula 1 supremo™ Bernie Ecclescake says there is no room in grand prix racing for FOTA.
Ecclescake: suspicions aroused.
"FOTA, as any fule kno," said the diminutive billionaire, "is the Formula Three Association, see? So they really shouldn't be in F1 at all, I mean, what were they thinking? Jeez!"
FOTA 'representative' Peter Briggs reacted swiftly to the man they don't call Shorty.
"I don't know how we haven't been found out before," he said, "but it is a shame, as we hadn't quite managed to implement our devious masterplan to make F1 more exciting by encouraging closer racing, promoting overtaking, and putting bizarre pod things on the side of the engine cover.
"I think we were only spotted thanks to the sponsor logos on our truck in the F1 paddock.
"And we would have got away with it too if it wasn't for this meddling kid."
