The Ferrari F1 Team recently fired the whole pit crew to employ some young unemployed youths from Liverpool (if in the US substitute Chicago for Liverpool). The decision to hire them was brought on by a documentary on how unemployed youths in the Liverpool area can remove a set of car wheels in less than 4 seconds without proper equipment. This was thought to be a good move as most races are won and lost in the pits these days, and Ferrari would thus have an advantage.

However, Ferrari soon encountered a major problem: Not only were the lads changing the tyres in under 4 seconds but within a further 10 secs they had resprayed, re-numbered and sold the vehicle to the McLaren team.
