chunder should be qualifying in the top 3 on the gridchunder should be qualifying in the top 3 on the gridchunder should be qualifying in the top 3 on the grid
under/over achievers

Was watching a clip the other day of Patrick van Mechelen, man he did a lot with fairly lame equipment.

Was wondering how many others either did more than they should or did very little!

I would also say Davy Jeanney in the C4, Lysen in the Fiesta, that Clio always looked awful to drive.

Under achievers, Hedstrom, Anton MArkuld, but we all know why he is there.

Some of that 'lame equipment' was his own fault though - he seemed to be the only person running a Subaru for quite some time and that car was never really on the pace when I saw it. As much as I love a Scooby he was never going to get anywhere with that car. He looked much more competitive in the Fiesta.

They're good shouts - Jeanney always seemed to go well (and he appeared to be a nice guy too) whilst Lysen looked impressive in whatever he was driving but in the supercars he never seemed to be in the 'right' machine.

I don't know if they're underachievers as such - just that maybe they're just not as good as some of the others. That's probably 100% for them so from a personal level they're performing well - it's just that their best isn't as good as other peoples. So maybe you could say the car is/was capable of more if it had a different driver.
