Lambo time set before the track upgrade?

Yes, so the gap is still bigger really.... :tilt:

upgraded track is around a second faster I'm told.

Just love the Merc and the sounds was brilliant.

Also got to see my first MP4c-12 (or what ever it is coded as) in the flesh, bigger then I expected. Too excited to take a pic :)

There are so many rumors flying around about the car/team. I have a mate who's mate works there, hope to ctachup with him soon to get the goss.

A couple of rumors I have heard around are:
Support from Merc in Germany but none fro Merc Aus.
AMG in Germnany worked on the aero pack and engine

Yes

Surely not allowed then??

Audi were famously dsq'd for it in the 90s.

I like it though, but if they've got it, why don't the others have it?

They will get there one day...
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!
