which means a few things
1 - unlike all the other teams, they can adjust the cars last minute before the race sunday - the cars wont be in the impound
2 - they will start from the pit lane
3 - presumably, they will be running a heavier fuel load
4 - stoddard has mentioned that the cars they are using for the race have only about 60 odd practice laps logged between the two - therefore, this is an act of preservation, and consistency in finish.
5 - its all completely legal.. and frankly, im glad to see something a little different and spicy in f1, its about fucking time!
