  1. I am not sure John but I know that it is a bloody waste of petrol.

  2. I’m not sure either, John but can I come around and check out Max’s Volvo?

  3. Maybe a word or two with Mr Dobson could shed some light on the subject.

  4. Motor racing is no less a sport than Bernie extorting a maximum possible amount of taxpayers’ money from governments silly enough to believe the event works miracles for their economy.

    Although I’d hazard a guess Bernie squeacks.
