    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    I personally think it's quite a nice looking car. I suppose it brings sportscars one step closer to what they were like 20 years ago, although that Peugeot does look more like a single seater with a roof and some extra bodywork over the suspension and sidepods.

    i wasnt referring to his driving skills. I think he's a prat. Same for Schumi for that matter. The best drivers seem to have that in common. Therefore yes they employ him because he's a good driver but then again in my opinion having him support their image for their new car isnt such a good thing.

    I guess for some odd reason, winning is more important to them than their image.

    I'm keen to see how Bourdais goes behind the wheel of an LMP car. Has he had any prior experience in this type of racing or car before?

    He drove for Henri Pescarolo's team in LMP1 back in 2004, so he should have a decent amount of experience.

    Don't forget the win at Spa in the Viper
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    I just want to see what Lamy can do with this one, hope he goes well, like in every other type of car he's raced in the past.
    The sad thing is that here in Portugal noone seems to care about all his victorys, he has no national media atention what so ever...
