“As yet no one has gone faster but other teams are going as fast as us,” says Hunt. “It’s a four-horse race now. Right now the Australians are probably favourites because they are double world champions. It’s difficult to think about it eight months away, but the four [British] guys on the line will be expected to win. It’s about small margins now – we won Beijing by six seconds, caught the other team, but this time there is going to be about a tenth of a second in it.”
