Re: RESULTS: First Practice@QLD300
It's the same reason GSR were mid-fielders last year and HRT were mid-fielders for their first few seasons. It all takes time, data, money and knowhow.
With FPR the money & knowhow should be fixed, data on the BA's under blueprint is new for everyone just give them more time. That's not to take anything away from SBR who are doing an excellent job.
There is an interesting article in the latest Street Machine on FPR, they have hired a British F1 Race Engineer (can't recall his name). He says they are reluctant to change too much too soon, get it wrong and not finish or go backwards and the way the points are structured now your stuffed.
Remember their 2 BA cars are basically GSR spec racers. FPV are yet to build a BA to their own design and are still working out of the old GSR premises (which compared to 00-Motorsports when we toured both at last years FF Raid looked considerable less well funded & equiped)
