Wee Bit Scot: This is what happens when racing drivers are given the ‘hard’ task of photo journalism. Alan McNish at Le Mans, thanks to Autosport, took this snap. Below is his own caption on Autosport website.

"It’s the start of the second qualifying day and as you can see I have woken up in a good mood! I have a great feeling about today, and I know we are more competitive than the timesheets have suggested so far."

Amazing he still lost the pole to Peugeot.
