They seem like nice guys. So far, they also seem like the team that is most likely to have neat interaction with locals, which is something that seems to have been missing from the more recent seasons I've watched. Hopefully they do take the time to do that, because it will make the Race that much better for those of us who are watching.

I can root for them! :cheer:
