Life on the FAST TRACK

MCLAREN decided to take advantage of India's high unemployment rate and hired unemployed Indian Youths from the Dharavi slums in Mumbai. The decision to hire them was brought on by a recent documentary on how they were able to remove a set of wheels from a car parked in the street in than six seconds without any proper equipment. Mclaren's erstwhile crew took more than eight seconds with the right equipment. This was thought to be an excellent yet bold move by the Mclaren management, and as most races are won and lost in the pits, McLaren would have an advantage over every other team.
However, Mclaren's expectations were exceeded, as during the crew's first practice session, not only were 'da boyz' from mumbai able to change the tyres in under six seconds, but within 12 seconds had resprayed the car, filed off the chassis number and sold the vehicle over to the Ferrari team!!!
So, now I wonder wat my friend AUTO SARAVANAN, meant when he said, he can kick Michael Schumacher's Butt anyday in the race. And when u sit and analyse wat he said, it makes TRUCK LOADS of sense. On an average, auto saravanan drives his auto @ 50kms an hour, shuffling between the busy streets in the disorganised chennai roads and he proudly claims, he still hasn't had an accident. While Michael Schumacher, just goes around in circles in the track with just 20 other cars on the road. But auto sara has to take care of the cars, the deadly MTC buses, the crazy two wheelers, and also the sudden guest appearances of cows, dogs and the odd cyclists and the innumerable pedestrians. Whoa...my head spins while I write this, guess wat he must be going thro..
So on a Mano-e-Mano basis..AUTO SARA...claims he would win PANTS DOWN!!!
(guess wat it would be like to see Schumi with his pants down....hmmmmm...)
