I got thinking today that this is one potential marketing opportunity that the bosses don't seem to have pounced on. We have tissot as a major partner, so why not charge them a little more, present the polesitter with their latest shiny new model, and split the money between the teams? Just seems to be a wasted opportunity.

Exactly mate, every time the timing comes up on TV (every other second) it says… 'TISSOT' hence Propaganda!

Sorry then Roger, it must have been the language translation matter, we use the ‘propaganda’ and ‘advertising’ words for the same significance in México… could be bad use of it though now that I’ve seen the dictionary. Sorry again!
