I think a few others will be chasing Sergio . as long as Sergio don't change oil on the track again everything will be good ..those big bold letters in sergios announcement kinda makes your knees quiver ...tech should really take a close look under his hood any fancy piping heading towards what looks like an intercooler may mean something aint right .
