They are probably out for this leg. But, remember Ericsson 3 in 2009... Major hull work in the Philippines resulted in them pulling into Qingdao as the rest of the fleet was leaving on leg 5. But, after a quick turn around and a departure seven hours after the rest of the boats, they went on to win that leg. Magnus Olssen flopping around on the stage at the award ceremony in Rio is one image I will never forget.
