Lowndes

Is it just me that think's Lowndes isn't trying as hard as he use to?. When he was driving the green eyed monster. He was awesome to watch,He was agressive. I can't remember the last time he smacked someone out of the way. He just seem's to be taking it easy. Considering all the publisity he gets. I would think he would finnish in the top 10 more often.

I think it's the car more than him. For some reason FPR just don't have the pace of the front runners... I can't remember the last time that a factory Ford team really got up there :(

Re: Lowndes

Of course its the car! he was in a red rocket when he actually looked good and winning championships. Now David Thexton JUST makes him look good.

Re: Lowndes

The Engines are just not up to the pace. All of Glenn's previous engine development from last year has been ignored and neither Glenn nor Craig have any input into the developement of the engines. Neither expect to do well this year.

Re: Lowndes

Thats a bit harsh, last year it was there first year and had a really crap workshop they where just getting started. This year should be better. I think you sould save your opinion on whether Lowndes is performing or not at the end of this year.

and dont forget Seton

Re: Lowndes

Re: Lowndes

Lowndes is deffinatley underchieving - Compared to when he drove for HRT he's got the skills of "Speedy" Thexton right now.

Whether it's the car or the driver is the issue...

Re: Lowndes

Or maybe the competition has become very close in the recent yr's, yes Craig did drive very well in his HRT day's but the comptition has grown since then, alot of the team's are on the ball now, just look at the time's in qualifying now,once they were seperated by sec's now it's 1hundred's of a sec or tighter.
