They have to fire this guy

Those processes delayed communication throughout the whole weekend.

Not a single mention from anyone, not from commentators who knew or any team member.
People were told to zip it, there's no other explanation for not discussing the latest updates in a controversial topic.

Look at Coulthard
The Commodores appear to have retained a distinct advantage in a straight line - so given we are three parity adjustments into the season is it time for number four? Time to add some drag to the Commodores to fix the parity problem.....

Found it interesting they could cover off on subjects like the colour of drivers urine and the direction of the wind and cloudcover during the weekend but didnt touch the latest adjustment to parity.

from memory watching my recorded telecasts I think this was spoken about either early Friday or Saturday re parity adjustments

Can't say I can recall that sandgroper......I was waiting to hear from the commentary team about these latest tweaks, but nothing.
Very poor.

The commentators are employed by Supercars.

They will only toe the party line and give PR speak, not their personal opinions and certainly nothing controversial or detrimental to the public image of Supercars

If only the broadcast was independent...

The comparison with the Seven Team of the '91 to '92 could not be more stark.

No hesitation to speak ones mind about the parity.

The commentators (mainly Skaife) will contradict the DSO though, which is strange given the above comments, not to mention quite damaging from a "PR" point of view.

Maybe it's more a personal issue/lack of tact on Mark's behalf?

Well aware the commentary team toe the line.
Never a good thing but no surprises.

I guess I missed the topic being brought up at the desk.
They can't have had much to say. You would have thought the topic was more than worthy of discussion.
