Did anyone else notice how many of the teams, both Ford and Holden had terrible pit stops. I mean there's fast and slow stops but 3 seconds difference between even the leading teams. Ozemail guys weren't even ready when he came in. Sure its first race of the season but the likes of Pirtek, HRT and DJR seemed to have it all together and they all did very well. Could this be a sign of who the committed teams are and aren't.


P.S. Go Ambrose, impressive.
P.P.S Well done Johnson Junior.

I saw that the Ozemail guys werent even ready when Jones came in for his stop... that was a bit of a bugger on their part.

a lot of tems were struggling to get the wgeels off when the wheelnuts were undone, looks to be something to do with the new way in which the wheelnuts are able to be retained in the wheels

apparently on the BJR cars they had the hubs on the wheels expand from the heat making it difficult to get the rims off. the ford teams really need to get the pit stops down pat, maybe it was alittle nerves in the pit stops this weekend. I mean look at how they dropped Todd kellys car with out the wheels on it..

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Yeah the pitstops were horrible.
Ambrose second stop took 14secs 4 seconds too long for what needed doing.
Even bloody HRT dropped the car on the ground with no wheels on it (I didn't complain there)
The teams really really need to work on this part of the race.

Breathe! It's only the internet....
