I believe they meant he had a lead of 6 seconds on Mark Green.

But it seems the "problem" is solved, and he is the deserved winner.....

An italian with an novarossi That car won by the engine not the chassis If it was a dry condition race the serpents would have kicked ass (see qualifying results)

Ok and if your Aunt had a package.... She would be your Uncle...

Everyone had to drive in the same conditions... Last I saw, the track was dry... The G4S is a very capable car when set up correctly... And that's what you saw... A win for TM & the G4S drivers... Is the 720 a great car??? Yes... But remember, it's the driver behind the wheel along with the car that gets the win... .02

Talking

All cars, whether it is mugen, serpent, kyosho or the tm, are excellent and capable of victory in the hands of a great driver.
Maybe the rain in the semi finals shuffled the list of finalists a bit, but that really only shows who has prepared properly and can adapt to changing racing conditions.
Of course the novarossi is a great engine, no doubt about that. And though it definitely helps to have a good engine, it takes more than just an engine to win a race like this .

The track was dry but everything else was still flooded with water.. If you tried to hard like the serpent drivers did you would come into the grass (or water) once you did that your car wouldnt have grip afterwards for a few laps. Hell i saw it with my own eyes

He was one of the slowest on the track, Darren was a lot faster but even Darren went off whereas Dario I think only had a spin ON the track and never went off. Good driver? Yes. Trying too hard, yes but it was still slow enough to be safe and yet fast enough to get the laps in to win despite the mis-count.

Nope he just kept the car where it belongs on the grey part of the circuit
The others where spinning or stalling the engines.
