How Gerhard Berger's Ferrari was stolen

You might have heard through mass media that Gerhard Berger's private Ferrari (not the Formula 1 car) was stolen in Imola. Jean Alesi's Ferrari was stolen, too. On Monday after the San Marino GP Berger was in Munich (Germany) as a guest in the sport-magazine called "Blickpunkt Sport" on the Bavarian TV. There he told in a funny way how his Ferrari was stolen:

Gerhard left the hotel in the evening to drive to dinner. As he was about 30 metres away from his car, he saw someone driving his Testarossa out of the parking space and so he thought: "Maybe someone needs the parking place and so the hotel stuff moves away my car." But a few seconds later another thought flashed through his mind: "How can they drive with my car when I've got the key in my hand now?!?" (What a surprise!) Gerhard didn't know what to do and so he stood in front of his car but the person at the steering wheel stepped on the gas and so Gerhard had to jump aside not to get driven over. It was like a scene in a film!
