! second covering the field - what you'd expect at the Plains I guess - only have to sneeze at the wrong moment and you'd drop a couple of rows on the grid.

Tickford not having a good day at all are they? Might do better in the race but there'll be some head scratching going on there no doubt.

Looks like the WAU resurgence is genuine whichever is great to see. Shame about tickford.

What did he have to say generally?

Thought occurs to me that they may be struggling a bit with the different tyre details for 2018. We've seen Tickford (or at least its previous iterations) struggle to come to grips with changed tyre specs before & I wonder if it is something like that going on again?

My interpretation was basically him saying no individual telling offs due, it is no use blaming any one faction, the team as a whole have got it wrong but bottom line is the car is not fast enough.

Looked to me that the Van Gis early pit-stop move was pre-planned, to use Van Gis as a mobile chicane to try and get Whincup ahead, incase the Wau cars or Reynolds had a faster race pace after what happened in Melbourne.

Could be argued that Tickford has less experience (additional new composite panels for some tickford cars even since the Australian GP round) running their 'Falcons' in their current configuration than the teams with the ZB with 2 rounds on them?

Same could be said for the Nissans as well, who were also nowhere come raceday.

Doubt it - with all due respect to Mr Bright, he didn't set the world on fire there - regardless of whether it was him or the car that was lacking.

It just seems to be a team that loses their way easily and struggles to work it all out.

Brights technical knowledge might help though, he seems to have the KBR car going OK in Super 2 this weekend. Not sure he would be faster than Super Richie though!

Wow, Jack le Brocq has really hit the ground running. Who knew it would only take 2 1/2 rounds to be mixing it with the big boys of the series, especially while having to develop a new car. Amazing.
