Unfortunately indeed! However they'll be back again from New Zealand onwards with a new team leader (I've read it somewhere), hopefully again with either Hulkenberg or Vietoris.

Anyway, as for Chengdu, it's a pretty nice track. Qualifying was rather close, so I'm looking forward to an action-packed an exciting race, so the getting up early is worth it ;) And anyway, now we finally have more cars and some known names (Andretti).
