Guys, check out starting grid, there's a picture of Mark Green sweating.....no blinking wonder!!! Mark gets my award for his determination in the WC - many a driver would have lost all motivation in being demoted to the back of the gird.

Oh I see ... ah well, cuba cuba aja dong.

By the way, Adrien must have used 37s or something ... he came in for a tyre change. In fact I think only furukawa didn't change tyres. Maybe Teddy also ran 37s?

Agreed Pyramid ... I think he missed the point because if 2 Serpents went into the main final is "bad result", I don't know what he says to Mugen, Assoiated, OFNA, Team Magic, etc etc etc.

Well, I guess that's why he is a British National champ and Serpent sponsors him. you and me just didn't meet the age criteria .... but judging from what we did in the wet, we were surely determined!

None of Teddy's engine are plain. I believe the RB V12, RR12L3, NSR3 are all already modified by OA (He told me on Monday). And the most suitable for him during the heats is the RB V12.

This is the info from his team manager :
NSR3, RR12L3, Max S3 = not enough power
JP FX3 = setting problem, keeps flaming out

Teddy's amunition for the WC : Max S3, RRL3 Kondo, RB V12, RRL3, NSR3, JP FX3, etc. Later he got Sirio Team engine complete with clutch (maybe also Sirio pipe) for him to use on the finals. What a preparation!!

Try some higher front downstop: +0.5 or +1, instead of standard 0mm.
It helped me a lot.

That's an arsenal! I guess when you're a personality/celebrity with money you can get equipped. Actually you would NEED to get equipped as such to compete with the factory boys!
