      You might remember a few weeks ago that Audi Sport drivers Allan McNish, Tom Kristensen and Marco Bonanomi got together for a triathlon in Allan's home town of Monaco. "Team McKristenomi" was the name of their effort, complete with team shirts sporting Audi fonts and a moniker of the Brangelina variety. More subtly, you have to wonder if this wasn't a team building exercise for Audi Sport. There's been rumor of Dindo Capello retiring after the 2011 season and while that's not yet been determined, ...
