Leading the field by quite a margin in today's practice at Hamilton Street Circuit was FPR but Jason Bright says Team BOC has a shot at being best of the rest in tomorrow's race.
Bright was 11th quickest today and, although FPR's 0.3s gap on the rest of the field seems insurmountable, he believes a perfect lap would have put him right in the thick of the other contenders.
After his recent string of difficult results Bright is more than happy with that and is looking forward to tomorrow's qualifying at 11.10am.
"FPR is looking very strong but we're in with a shot with the rest of them, which is better than we've been the last couple of rounds. If someone told me we'd be 11th tonight after the few months I've just had I'd have taken it!
"We've changed the car quite a bit today and after all the changes we ended 11th so I'm satisfied. You make changes on the fly so we'll look at the data tonight and see if we missed anything. I know my lap at the end there wasn't as good as it should be; I definitely didn't nail a lap but I'm relatively happy."
