Question

Am I the only one who noticed that the car was wearing Russell's #9 and not Marcose's #4 at the track day yesterday.

What's that all about? Has there been any word on them switching numbers??????


Cheers

Not the best paint job yet - and what's up with the exhaust where it exits? Looks like it hasn't got the side skirts...

I'm with you FF on the paint scheme, and I think his AU had a better looking paint scheme.

I definitely don't like the cheap and nasty plastic headlight cover look.

Apparently they were lucky to make it out on track at all because the car wasn't finished. The paint job was just a quickie to get the sponsors names on the car for the telly. Its hardly finished. (I do hope they remove them yellow lights. yuck!)

They used the #9 for the tyre situation. By using Russell's number those tyres are allocated to the #9 car. There must be some strategic plan with tyres. And I also heard that the car is not finished, I hope so as it needs a bit of work to match the other great looking BA's that have been launched
