Alberto Picco is R&D... he designs the cars and is the only factory driver for the car.

You're right though, if your high enough someone else is your mechanic and cleans/rebuilds the car quite often during a big race (this is especially true for Team Serpent).

Are you sure it's not for lubrication? Afraid of the one-way ticket KY Gel, now using WD-40, instead?

Why keep it in a bedroom if it deserves no purpose there?

hmmm... I wonder....

No! KY Gel is the one-way ticket. Using WD-40 you may end up enlargen the size of the header, as well. Thus, it may cause the air leakage and result in overheating your engine.

Ask what you feel like, and choose the right stuff.

to one-way, or not to one-way.
