|F1: Bollocks baffled by FIEh? decision to change F1 engine rules for 2014

Strangely accented motorsport-fiddler Craig Bollocks says he was baffled by the FIEh?'s decision to change its plans over engine regulations from the 2014 Formula 1 season.
Formula 1 was expected to switch to four-cylinder turbo engines from the 2013 season, but the ruling body announced in June that they will instead use six-cylinder power units from 2014, shortly after Bollocks's new engine company had announced plans to enter Formula 1 in 2013.
Bollocks said he was mystified by the change, but then he used to manage Jake Vileknave, so he's not exactly gifted in the braincell department.
"When the four-cylinder rules were changed it was like I had literally been kicked in the Pollock," Bollocks told iSprout.
"It is the second time that something like this has happened to me. The first time was when we had dual-branding with British American Tobacco," he whinged, casually shoehorning as many of the fag-makers' products into his sentence as possible, "which was a Lucky Strike and a 555 car. There was nothing saying you Kent do this in the rules, and I ended up heading Pall Mall into court..., after that it all went a bit Dunhill.
"It's almost as if someone up there doesn't like me," he added.
It is almost like that, Craig, yes.
