Courtney's 5th and three top tens are certainly superior to Mr. Stanaway, although Mr Courtney's write off was certainly more spectacular. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.......
The only questions that I'll ask are:

1) What was the total budget of James Courtney's team in his debut year compared to the total budget of Tickford this season?

2) Of that total budget, what percentage of it (roughly) was spent on Courtney's car versus Stanaway's car at Tickford this season?

1) How should I know.

Are you suggesting the Mega racer is an underfunded steed made out of cobbled together bits leftover from the leading Tickford racers? And that even the whole Tickford operation has less resources than championship winning SBR in it's hey day?

Might be seen as that in the long run.

There seems to be a budget hole and Richie looks to be getting a raw deal. Larko is right - in a Penske car or a 888 car, he'd quickly find form.

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Maybe he should have brought some cash with him

Considering the experience of Frosty and Mostert can't get a Tickford FGX consistently fast, I don't think Stanaway can be expected to do better than he so far has, in what seems an underfunded car, which may or may not be part of an underfunded team.

There is a hole in the bucket over at Tickford these days. Even when they didnt really have a history of getting 4 cars in the top 10 regular (except Bathurst last year) at least one was firing towards the front each round, usually a different one mind you

Composite panels seems like a blind alley

A shiny new technical director may be of more use....

Absolutely.
Allegedly discounting long time existing deals as recently as this year perhaps because of a distinct lack of alternatives, and hanging around the garages in Adelaide hoping Castrol would take title sponsorship of #56 doesn’t send the market great signals, nor the bank managers...

There are some wonderful rumours belting around about this team at the moment, including where their drivers will end up in 2019 despite existing contracts...

Or even where their RECs could end up.
