Absolutely gutted for JP after race 3.

Nice drives by Cookie. Hill couldn't quite get there.

I'm left wondering if Ash could end up winning the championship this year with hardly any wins - he's becoming the new Turkington, Mr. Consistency.

What are the odds Cookie can repeat his double win on the next visit to Thruxton?

He was on pole with 2nd place hybrid penalty, so say it's pretty likely he can get pole again, unless they change the hybrid or it rains.

Or some other teams improve their setups.

Yup - I think it also shows the engineer and No1 mechanic are key factors in results. No wonder Ash takes his team with him

Exactly, if Motorbase (for example) can continue to unlock the potential currently hidden inside their Focus, Ash Sutton could be a strong contender for the two wins.

Watching him bludgeon the Focus round Thruxton was a really good demonstration of what a monster of a driver he is. Right on the edge, and sometimes slightly over it, but more or less in control all of the time. Damned impressive.

I honestly think he should have a crack down under at some point, his driving style would really suit Supercars.

Just like Ingram when he drove the Toymotor, and why he was always there or thereabouts. Butcher just doesn't have the same finesse that Ingram had in it, which is why he doesn't feature on the podium in the same car.

Heh. I forgot he'd already been and had a test day with WAU in 2018!

Shame nothing came out of it. Would be amazing to see Ash in Supercars. However, I can't recall a single non-Oz or NZ driver succeeding in Supercars.

Well... there was the Canadian driver Allan Moffat who won the championship 4 times *and* Bathurst 4 times.

And then some blokes called Muller, Bourdais, Premat, Lyons and Salo have had victories (as co-drivers, admittedly).

Yes, Moffat is a good example but it was many many years ago.
The likes of Muller or Bourdais were co-drivers which is a bit of a different thing.
