RickD said:I just found it interesting. Jez - I think it is more to do with who is supposed to be the teams first driver. If
Lewis finds the No.3 unlucky, then fair enough.
I suspect they'll offer the lower number to the lead driver first. Internally, the teams will know who their priority driver is. In the case of McLaren, this could be a careful way of saying the two drivers are indeed considered equals. But like I said, I think the only time it matters is that the WDC has car number 1.
