    You don't even need to read the post to know that, just see who wrote it. Same old drivel, it used to be funny but now its just boring.

    1x 3rd, 2x 4th, 1x 5th, 1x 7th and 1x crashed out while leading.

    I'd say those results aren't bad at all for a guy who has only been given half the seat time considering how tight the competition...

    But to get screen-time for the advertisers you don't! I think it was Juha Kankkunen who once said "if you're going to crash make it a big one, in front of the cameras". :champion:
