Australian Grand Prix Post Report & Results

It was a pleasing result on what was a non-points round at the Australian Grand Prix held at Albert Park in Melbourne. After the incident in race two in Adelaide it was important the team to look past it and come back strong. Chris did an outstanding job and was straight back to speed making consistent progress through the weekend.

Chris says “I am pretty happy. We made some good steps forward across the weekend and we’ve gained every time we’ve hit the track. We’ve got three top-15 finishes in a row and as long as we keep doing that, keep gaining; we’ll be knocking on the door of the top 10 soon. The Super Black Ford is feeling comfortable and we’re making good gains.”

Tim Edwards – Team Principal for Prodrive Racing:
“We’ve had a solid if unspectacular run but each of the four drivers feels they’ve gained car performance and learnt something so that’s encouraging. Cam’s little error aside we had a trouble-free day which is good given we’ve seen a lot of action in the last few days.”
