You canít judge parity by fastest laps alone. Fresh tyres can mask a cars deficiency, for a few laps. Based on the close qualifying times at most V8 Supercar rounds we should be seeing finishes of the race where the entire field goes over the finish line nose-to-tail. Clearly that never happens other than after a safety car.

Yesterday I watched a race where Whincup cruised, unopposed in the most boring, predictable contest for the Sandown Enduro race lead in recent times by leading virtually from start to finish. What race were you watching?
