Chapter 807 - I Will Represent Ron in the Competition
These words were extremely unpleasant to hear.
Ji Shu was already feeling upset due to Ron’s injury. Now that he had heard Doyle’s sarcastic remarks, the anger that he had been holding back for a long time instantly exploded.
“What the f*ck are you saying?!”
His expression was extremely cold as the words that came out of his mouth were like ice cubes that fell heavily, causing the quiet atmosphere in the corridor to become even colder.
When Doyle heard his words, he was so angry that he laughed instead.
“What, is there a problem with what I said? Ji Shu, don’t you know what kind of predicament LY is facing now after losing today’s match?”
He looked Ji Shu up and down with eyes that were filled with ridicule.
“FN managed to turn the tables in one match today, a full 12 points higher than LY! If LY wants to win, the last sub-station will have to fill in the gap of 12 points! How are you going to fill in the gap of 12 points? Are you going to rely on your third place result?”
The 12-point gap would indeed be difficult to make up.
That was because even if LY came first in the sub-station, they would only get 10 points.
In other words, if LY wanted to turn the tables, at least two people had to be in the top eight in the last match, and the total score had to be more than 12 points.
Doyle looked at Lu Siyu, who was behind Ji Shu, and sneered.
“Or, are you going to rely on this ninth place result?”
No one could stand such public humiliation.
Lu Siyu clenched his fists, his face having turned red and white.
However, he could not say anything. He had indeed only placed ninth today.
In fact, he had placed in the top eight in the previous few matches, but he had not performed well today.
He had been not far behind when that mishap had befallen Ron.
How could he not have been affected by that scene when he had seen it with his own eyes?
However, a race was still a race. On the field, only victory and defeat mattered, and there was no place for excuses.
He felt very guilty for not having been able to accumulate points for the team.
At that moment, a cold female voice sounded.
“If I remember correctly, in the last race of the rally, the first-place driver will receive double points.”
Everyone fell silent.
Doyle looked at Shen Li as if he had just heard a joke.
“Getting double points is good, but are you so sure that Ji Shu will win first place?”
Ji Shu was indeed the best among the younger generation of drivers. He had won first place in more than one race before.
However, in the end, this was still a race after all.
A race would always be full of uncertainty.
Until the last moment, no one knew who would end up having the last laugh.
Just like what had happened to Ron today. Wasn’t he just in a car accident?
“Even if Ji Shu was really able to win first place, we still might not be able to overtake FN. After all, all three of their racers are still fine.”
What he said was also true.
If all three of FN’s racers got into the top eight, even if Ji Shu took first place, their combined points could still narrow the gap between them and Ji Shu.
In the end, FN could still secure first place with the team’s total points.
Shen Li frowned slightly. A hint of impatience appeared in her dark peach blossom eyes.
“As long as LY wins the first and second places in the last race and gets 28 points, then even if all of FN’s members make it to the top eight, they will only be able to get 15 points at most. Even if they added the 12 points that they earned today, they will definitely still lose.”
“Do you still need me to teach you such simple math?”
As soon as she finished speaking, the corridor became so quiet that one could hear a pin drop.
Not only Doyle, but everyone else present also looked at Shen Li in shock.
Did she know what she was talking about?
Yes, there was nothing wrong with her algorithm.
As long as LY could win first and second place in the last race, then no matter what results LY’s competitors got, LY would definitely win in the end.
What made them feel awkward was that they were unable to comprehend the size of this number!
Taking the top two places at the same time!
This time, Doyle’s laugh was genuine.
He looked at Shen Li as if he could not understand her brain at all. He was so speechless that he even forgot to fire.
“First and second place in a race… Shen Li, do you know that none of the ten teams that participated in the previous eight races have ever achieved this?”
Not even LY and FN!
LY’s best result had been in the fifth race, with Ji Shu having gotten first place and Ron in third place.
However, they had never achieved this kind of result in any of the other races.
“Let’s just assume that Ji Shu can place first. Who’s going to place second?” Doyle’s lips curled into a sneer. “Shen Li, you’ve probably forgotten that Ron is still lying in the operating theater!”
These two were the best in LY.
The others were on a different level from the two of them.
Lu Siyu was already the next best to them in LY. However, this difference was obvious when he entered the field.
This gap could be filled by many drivers of the other teams.
Even if Lu Siyu performed exceptionally, it would be impossible for him to take second place.
The other teams were not all pushovers!
With Ron in this current situation, the only thing that could be done was for him to withdraw from the race. Then, the chances of LY overtaking their competitors would become even more slim.
“What are you guys talking about?”
Gu Siyang’s voice suddenly sounded.
He was looking at the scene in front of him blankly. Hadn’t he just gone to make a phone call to communicate with the organizing committee of the rally? How had the atmosphere become like this the moment he returned?
However, his attention quickly fell on Shen Li.
“Sister, you’re here.”
He came to Shen Li and lowered his voice.
“I remember that you had a full schedule of classes this morning. Did you apply for leave?”
It was hard for him to still remember such trivial matters at this time.
Shen Li’s heart warmed slightly and she nodded.
“That’s good, then.”
Gu Siyang heaved a sigh of relief and scratched his head again.
“I didn’t want you to worry about these things… Sigh!”
Shen Li’s lips curved up slightly.
“I signed a contract with LY. Now that LY is in trouble, how can I stay out of it?”
Gu Siyang was instantly moved.
Was this what was meant by brotherly and sisterly love?
Now that something had happened to his company, she had immediately rushed over!
His sister was the best sister in the world!
If it was not for the inappropriate timing, Gu Siyang really wanted to hug his cousin and compliment her.
Glancing out of the corner of his eye, he saw that the expressions on Ji Shu and the others’ faces were not quite right. Only then did he remember that no one had answered his earlier question.
“Oh right, Sister, I think I heard what you guys were talking about just now–”
Gu Siyang paused for a moment, having tactfully avoided specifically saying the word “arguing.”
Although he had not heard it clearly, the tone had indeed not been very friendly. Besides, the atmosphere at the moment was also…
“It’s nothing.” Shen Li’s tone was light, as if she was merely discussing a small matter that had nothing to do with her. “We’re just discussing the matter of the last race.”
Gu Siyang suddenly understood,
“So, it’s about the race list? Then what’s the result of the discussion?”
Ron could not continue the race, so LY would definitely have to pick another driver to fill the vacancy.
Shen Li nodded and said calmly, “The conclusion of the discussion is that I will replace Ron and participate in the last race.”
