Not quite - they've still got an aero nobbling agenda to complete.

LOL at anyone drawing any definitive conclusions from practice sessions - particularly for a race meeting with parc ferme in place after qualifying. Meaning that some may not be intending to run a "full on" Q setup and so may have not tested it, some tried different warm up techniques for tyres, some ran full car sets of new tyres, some didn't, the list is long.
Race weekend would be more definitive, scheduled aero test between here and PI more definitive again and PI itself yet more definitive.
We'll see what pans out. At least now they all have the same CoG so that reasoning / excuse / answer has now been resolved - bat on.

It isnt really even sandbagging.... more a case of what was the function of P2? Answer, to hone in on a set up that deals with Parc Ferme rules, and finish in the top 10 and avoid having to run Q1, keeping a set of tyres in the bank. All the fancied runners did that. Job done.
No points for finishing practice quickest today.

One wonders if the Ford protagonists ever expected the catagory to ramp up their methods of seeking parity, and so early in the season?

Perhaps, some could argue that up til recently, the methods of parity testing have been somewhat antiquated given the simulation technology teams have access to, and that teams have taken full advantage of this?

Well the ZB had cfd aero last year and that was apparently fine. Now Ford have done a proper job it is a parity issue. Parity issues will keep coming up until Holden go back to filling the podiums.

So did the Nissan...

Regardless of who's done a better job of getting a car through homologation, it's a parity series, and the catagory must manage that.

They’ve never gone to such lengths so quickly to ‘manage’ parity that I can remember . Including hurriedly writing new rules.

The rules were already there for composite panels. It just needed tweaking to include all makes.

Chassis COG is an entirely new rule.
