THE WORD FROM JASON

Qualifying was tough for drivers today and Jason was caught out when he was on a flyer. Jason was following Moffat who was warming tyres and after locking brakes to avoid him, he made contact during the session, resulting in a 3 grid position penalty for the race. Jason was now set to start from 17th rather than his initial qualifying position of 14th. After a safety car was deployed mid race, Jason was in 14th position, battling with Caruso and Tander. With 10 laps to go, some of the top ten were losing pace and had to make a last minute pit stop, ultimately moving Jason further through the order. Heimgartner stopped on track with only 10 laps to go, many drivers taking this opportunity to pit for fresh rubber. Jason pitted, re-joined in 13th position and charged to 9th where he ultimately finished the race.

JASON “I felt like we had good strength in our braking today. We made a good call there at the end with the safety car, a lot of the guys behind me pitted for tyres and we did too which gave us some better tyres to run that final sprint to the finish. I didn’t get as far as I would have liked, but pitting was definitely the right call today. The safety car worked well for us today.”
