From a corporate perspective, you guys have to remember that Team drivers are a corporate asset. Wins using the company's gear translates into more sales. Anything that is said, not said or said between the lines (Hint! Hint!
) translates into a message to the company's customers or potential customers. If the wrong message comes accross, it will affect consumer confidence in the product.
Making a big assumption that all of the above is true, maybe Mike would consider giving us a mini-review of this stock, unmodified engine from a Team driver perspective - or maybe not.
(A safe bet would be to run it by the marketing department first.
If he wants to reserve comment, that's okay by me. The race results will speak for themselves.
