Jenson Button has sensationally been disqualified from the Australian Grand Prix.

Button, who finished first in the race, was relegated to last place by the sport's administrators who cited a recently introduced regulation that 'No English driver is allowed to win a race, or the overall championship.'

F1 President said that the rule had been introduced to prevent irregular occurrences such as in the 2008 season, when not only did an English driver win the title, but he did so while at the same time being black. He said "The rule was introduced for moral reasons and for the good of the sport. We cannot allow the English disease to spread, it's what my father and his friend Mr Hitler fought for, and the reason many young Nazis died seventy years ago."

It is believed that Mr Moseley intends to lobby other professional bodies to introduce an identical rule, although FIFA, the world soccer governing body, have said that it is totally unnecessary as the chances of England winning a major trophy are extremely thin.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
