Just a reminder, the 'one driver per team' rule is still in effect.

I've sent this note to the tipper who has forgotten:

The 'one per team' rule from last year is still in effect. If you change out one of them before the deadline all will be OK, otherwise I'll treat this like a late tip, and the first of those two drivers will not score for you.

This applies for the first race. I hope it won't be necessary to decide what to do for future races.
