For a minute I read that and thought he was not riding but managing the team... weird

I think as much as anything he will be riding support for Helder; certainly wouldn't use the W word, but I don't think he will be flat out for a win.

But who knows, the strategies can change on a daily basis in this rally, however Honda will certainly hope it doesn't come to that, but a 5 man factory team could be a bit like a Tour de France team
