    Westy still in it. 51, got 31 places to drop to get to my prediction.

    Seb has 50% to drop, currently in 2nd, top podium step for him, i hope.:ear

    Sad to say Troy, I'm more inclined to listen to Robbie's version, bearing in mind El Rollador's antics over the years:lol3:wink:

    Looking for Faggoter, Smith, Grabham, Fish to make a forward move today. Fish could be called on for help again but barring that he should make up a bit of yesterday's lost time. Go Aussies.

    What we are referring to (assuming... it HAS happened before in recent years) that at some point (within the 24 hours after all the footage is collected sifted through) on occassions the FIA jury get a glimpse of something (most of the top 10 vehicles have lipstick cameras in them somewhere on many/most of the stages) that does not quite "gel" with the story lodged by a plaintiff...

    That's all I'm sayin'... :wink:
