    Thanks for the nice words.

    I don't know what happened but the audio and slide sequencing leaves a lot to be desired.

    The older one at the picture with both of them - that is Adrian, the younger one that is on solo picture (min 32-33) is Christian Horner. But I have them mixed up previously as well... :-) BTW: Really good talk - I always enjoy your talks and fully agree that it can't do no harm to try understand the stuff bellow better.
