I've never believed in bad luck, but just recently I've begun to wonder! Spa-Francorchamps was the third race in a row where things went wrong for us.
In a five round championship you can't afford one race dropped, never mind three. But it has become standard procedure for us to find ourselves four laps down, half-way through the race and facing an Allan McNish/Rinaldo Capello fightback.
Then again, though we've had our fair share of things go wrong when we've been on the limit and fighting at the front, we could have taken the other option, which is to sit back and drive within ourselves, keep up with the Peugeots, and be competitive enough to finish second or third.

That's not the way I go about my motorsport and I don't think it's the way Audi Sport or Dindo do either. We'd prefer to attack and try and be in with a shout of victory, not settle for a safe podium.
