I agree with Russell 100%!
Just finished watching on RPM the Ambrose/Bright incident from Phillip Island. I found it very interesting that the phone-in viewers vote was 66% favouring Marcos and that only 8% thought it was a racing incident. After seeing it myself now, I can see how you the viewers came up with that result. I was absolutely stunned on the course of events. Marcos was clearly going into the pits and as Bright admitted on RPM, he knew that Marcos was on slicks and it was raining very hard at that stage so it was quite obvious that Marcos was going into the pits to change tyres. Bright was actually on the grass going up the inside of him and that part of the circuit is probably a good four to five car widths wide so why he was going down the inside I have no idea.
To say Marcos didn’t indicate is an absolute joke as I myself haven’t seen too many cars ever indicate when going into pit lane before and I hardly think that excuse explains not even taking the last turn, and keep ploughing into the side of Marcos until eventually turning him around a good 200 to 300 meters past pit lane. Allegedly Brighty said his steering was bent however he still drove around behind the pace car to finish the race so it couldn’t have been that bad. If that was a racing incident then I think we better go back and re-visit my incident with Murphy at Adelaide because that must have been a racing incident and those few people that gave me grief about it should have a look at both incidents and have a good hard look at themselves.
Even though I haven’t seen it, I have been told that there was also an incident between Skaife and Murphy and I will be very keen to see the footage as a few have told me it was a little bit suspect but Murph seems to have toed the “corporate line” and said it was just one of those things. Geez Murph, you weren’t that obliging with me!
