Ask a 1970s Le Mans Porsche driver! I believe the Pink Pig was quite competitive.

I was watching the highlights again last night. Max had a a great opportunity to cut that corner into P2, to avoid a crash.(yeah right) Seb proved that he has a good car and skills to use it, but on 60m a year id expect nothing less.
Despite some action in and around the track i think the major concern for me is how poor the Macas and Williams 4 have been doing in recent years. While Maca can get into Q2, Williams struggle to get off the back row. Race pace isnt much better for either of them.
Two of our Great British F1 Engineering icons, now bringing up the rear.

That hurts
Kick the tyres and light them fires...!!!!!!!

From memory the last Effwun race I watched, from end to end, had Nigel Mansell in it. :)
