Adrian Newey and Nigel Mansell have been around the sport for years. What ever your allegiance you have to congratulate the pair of them. For those who don't know this is not Adrian's first winning design of an F1 car. I'm impartial on this subject as I'm not particularly a RB fan. This season Adrian fully exploited the F1 regs. (As all designer will do!) We will have to see what he produces for 2012. Looking forward to the result of the drivers pole. Sure it will be JB and LH. Congratulations.
