Getting back to the original problem...

Other wise, we may also try this If we have two best players in one team we get win...ners in 7 races. After sixth race we get topper who initially belonged to say race 1, and then rest 4 competes with the second position holder of the race 1. so we get top three. Please let me know about the more easy methods in solving this problem.

I too think you can do it with 7 races also but I cannot follow your description of the setup for race 7.

Anyone care to prove that it cannot be done in 6?
