    " top 10 finishes from the off." is that a typo? Mods may remove this comment.

    I think it's a British phrase, meaning 'from the start' (of the season). Much like saying 'and they're off' at the start of a race.

    Sounds funny, wasn't sure, thanks, i got now one phrase more in my vocabulary. I've heard "they're off" hundreds of times, somehow associated it for present action, something that happens right now.
