Jaguar designer's bonus
The hit quiz show "Who wants to be a millionaire?" helped out a Jaguar Racing designer on Monday, Chris Martin one of John Russell's design team at Milton Keynes taking home $50,000 to brighten up his week.
The Jaguar team has been on a major charm offensive in recent days to try to convince the world that the Jaguar R3 is not as bad a car as has been reported. The only way that this will be proved one way or the other is when Eddie Irvine and Pedro de la Rosa take the tracks in Melbourne in 10 days time.
Jaguar Racing is hoping to surprise the critics and thus take some of the pressure off the team.
