Question How GOOD is Craig Lowndes?

Just had a good study of the qualifying times from the GP and was astounded by the brilliant performance of CL. Only 0.687 seconds behind Skaife and using 2 less laps. Then take into account the car he is driving(let's be blunt, it's really a GSR car and we all know how good they have been ) and it's a brilliant performance. Wait till this car is soughted with some Prodrive input

Secondly a mention for the Enforcer. Brand new team(for him), brand new make and brand new car and he is only 0.317 behind Skaife, another sterling performance

There might be 3 HRO cars in front but by not as much as I expected.
:s6:

I believe in Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and that HRT/KMR/TB are all seperate teams.

My prediction is that Ford teams will be doing extremely well from around mid-season.

Ohhh and Craig Lowndes is good VERY good, he will be a top performer i would imagine.

He's the man!

His car looks OK on the track - the yellow bits on the roof look cool - but they need to do something about the silver.

Let go of 00 Craig, they've got your old number, they've got the green eyes, give up the blinkin' silver!

Craig has always been good on cold tyres. I'm sure when he's got a fully sorted car from PRODRIVE he will be extremely competitive in all situations.

Man that looks awesome. Should have been painted like this from the start.

Lowndes - started 7th in race 2 at the AGP, was 10th by the first corner and finished 7th. So I guess he is very good!

I am a huge Lowndes fan, but I think his driving has dropped off in the last 6 months or so - new baby may be to blame!

That's great, much better than the silver. If I was you, I would send your interpretation to FPR.:s6:
