The 24 Hours of Nürburgring starts Saturday afternoon (sauerkraut time) and with the waving of the green flag comes with it the hopes of many Americans cheering on the P4/5 Competizione. Here's what the 'Ring looked like this morning.

We've been following the P4/5 Competizione from day one, so it's gratifying to see what some may have dismissed as folly come to life — and now get ready to spread its carbon fiber wings in just three short days.

So many questions... hopefully Jim would step by just to clear some...

1. There were numerous liveries proposed for the car, most of them playing with the red, blue and yellow. Why was it left naked?

2. Mika Salo has been linked to Ferrari for years, he's been sent by the Ferrari factory to drive a lot of private owned cars in competitions, including some Risi Competizione ones in LeMans, is this the same case? Did Ferrari pushed him in?

3. Do you think, that, as the Breadvan 250, this car will in the future be called a "proper" Ferrari by Ferrari Classiche?

4. What are the expectations, is the car competitive enough to take a class win or it's too far behind the rest of the longer tradition teams?
