If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari.

4-1 for the Macca exhaust solution. Seems "simple" wins.

Lovely looking Sauber car. Hope it's quick for them.

As FrukostScones mentioned the livery reminds me of HRT, but the car is a pretty one nonetheless.
