Whilst I appreciate the team clashes, it occurs to me that as Fernando and
Webber are really good mates, it would have been great to have seen them
team up in WSC, or even just for Le Mans.
But definitely good to see FA going for this - and two bites at the cherry
too with both 2018 and 2019 Le Mans in the deal.
