    Heard it from the guys at Automod--there is a local parts manufacturer for some kind of mechanical linkage that is becoming an F1 sponser/ supplier and he flew in for the anouncement---The guys at automod went down to try and get him to sign a set of F! wheels off of one of his old cars but just missed him

    One would think that the vendor would hype it at least somewhat if they knew the highest paid athlete, 6 time world champion was going to show up for a couple of hours. Oh well, I guess I have to buy the Ferrari pit pass for the US Grand Prix at I believe was $3200 a pop to get an autograph.

    Can anyone else verify this? I would have made the trip for sure. What company was he there for?
