THE WORD FROM JASON

It was lap one chaos at Hidden Valley this afternoon with Holdsworth, Coulthard and Mostert suffering major damage to their cars, bringing out the safety car for a number of laps. During the safety car the decision was made for Bright to pit twice, taking the lengthy stops early in hopes it would boost him through the order towards the end with only then having to do a short stop. It was bad luck as the team received a pit lane penalty for being too slow behind safety car, then another for spinning the wheels during the pit stop. It was not an ideal start to the race and made it very hard for Team BOC to recover. There was one final safety car in the latter part of the race, the team put on fresh tyres for Jason to have one final crack at passing cars. Jason went from 20th to his ultimate finishing position of 16th.

JASON: “After the day we had I can’t believe we finished on the lead lap! We ended up doing 7 pit stops which was triple the amount we should have had. We didn’t have the pace we needed today. We put new tyres on under the final safety car but we only managed to make up a handful of spots as there were only a few laps left. It was really disappointing to receive the pit lane penalty for being too slow behind the safety car. I wasn’t holding anyone up, the other cars around me slowed down too. No-one lost positions and at that point I was in last! We’ve got some work to do before Townsville.”
