Judging by the tone and by what ultimately happened over the course of the week, I'm guessing every single word that came out of Hugh's mouth that week was studiously and steadfastly ignored by the team?

In Hugh's words, at least it broke early so he could go to the pub (without the team though).

Badlands99 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Searching back in my very distant memory ................

Didn't a certain Mr Palmer bin the Canon Porsche 962 at Mulsanne Corner on the first lap back in the '80's? Or is my memory playing tricks on me?
