The report said that the fight involved drunk mechanics who had gone straight from the airport to the team’s factory to collect compensation for their redundancies.

“The atmosphere heated up and police had to be called to intervene,” said the report.

A member of the failing team’s management confirmed: “They began to threaten, push, hit; and because there was a violent situation we did call the police.”

    shame to them. drinking and getting themselves drunk will not solve their problems.

    Yeah but, they had a little fun for putting up with a crappy season.

    These poor bastards have probably worked their asses off with their limited budget.
    To lose your job or to be unsure of the future can be devastating on you.
    I hope they never paid for the alcohol.
    Good luck to them.
