I’d hardly call it a publicity stunt, but i can recall in NASCAR, drivers turning up for races and reiring after a couple of laps to get the prize money. I read in this weeks autosport that Mattias Ekstrom got almost $250,000 after racing in 2 NASCAR Races. The Americans give it a word, cant think of it though.
Back to the Publicity stunt, didnt Williams run extremely low fuel runs in practice? Also i can recall EJ saying he did the same thing in Monaco to impress Sponsors.
