THE WORD FROM TIM

“The Gold Coast street circuit is a difficult track to get right lap after lap. There are plenty of large kerbs here and in some sections, you are bouncing off one kerb, onto another kerb, and onto another, so landing them just right is crucial. If you don’t get the first one right, you could end up in trouble on the next. There is no room for error here because a concrete wall is waiting for you if you make a mistake, so for all drivers getting it right is key.”

“The car felt ok today during the sessions, with the last sector being strong, but needing to make up some time in the middle sector. Andre is still learning the car, and hasn’t really had the chance to do many laps in dry conditions, so for him to finish 12th was a good start to the weekend. I think his confidence will continue to grow and the times will continue to drop. Tomorrow we’re expecting another full day of rain, which will definitely mix up the order again.”
