  1. “This time a fue lsystem problem ended his race”

    not that it matters, i can see what it’s meant to be. must just be typing incredibly quickly. Or have fingers made of corned beef :)

    1. Sorry, space in the wrong place. Fixed.

  2. nice too see that Bruno was almost more than a 1 sec faster than chanduk during their first stint! Maybe a wakeup call for the people who say Chandok is better.

    1. Absolutely, Bruno had a great weekend. It’s a shame his car died on him near the end. You can tell from the chart that they must have kept him out in the hope the car would see it to the finish.
