The next morning, in the warm-up, it was raining – just what Allan was looking for – and it showed, setting the fastest time, a full scond ahead of the rest.
Race 1: The rain had now stopped but the skies looked ominous. Hector was in the car and was asked if he was game enough to risk running on slicks. He was. If that was to play out in his favour, the remainder of the field being on wets, then a win could be on the cards.
As Hector trundled around on the warm-up lap he could see that it was the right call for tyres, at that moment, with a mostly drying track.
Virtually every other team made the same call, on the grid, except the SLS and Aston Martin.
