1. Who do you think will be the top 5 drivers in the drivers championship standings at the end of the season, and what order?
I think it will be:
1. MichaelAngelo
2. Carre
3. Deki
4. Falcon
5. Neyo

Who are the top 3 constructors teams, and which order do you think they will finish in?
I think Michael and Falcon will win, then Carre and Haribo and then Deki and Jume. I would like to put my team in the mix but obviously due to my team mate being near the bottom, it's very unlikely.

3. This week both divisions will be tackling the street circuit in Melbourne. Which drivers do you think will be standing on the podium at the end of the race?

1. Hari ohhhhh wait. Deki will win
2. Carre
3. Michael

1. V5 will edge out Danny. Tigaby could finish higher if he does medium Tc but will put him 4th. Army for 3rd and Macca for 5th.

2. V5 and Macca for the constructors. Think Macca will up the ante with something tangible to fight for. Then army and Stevo and 3rd for Tigaby and Jamez.

3. Danny 1st army 2nd and Macca 3rd

Really not sure how to answer this Jar could surprise some in Div 1 which will push them to a higher level. in Div 2 I'm not sure either its an exciting time.

I'll be just hoping to show some sign of improvement. I was so far from the rest in season 15 it disappointed me.

The Winners Circle - D2 

Race Winner - V5 
 
Q. Great win today in tricky conditions in the race today. How did you find it?

A. I actually found it quite tough to start with but once I found a rhythm, I started feeling more confident and could push a bit harder. I got a great launch off the line before the restart. After the restart I got slightly put off when Stevo came flying through, so I was slow off the line.



Q. We had a restart after qualifying which meant drivers who qualified with a dry setup could change to a wet setup. Did you change anything?

A. Well I think parc fermé was disabled to start with, before the restart I hadn't changed anything but I can honestly say I increased rear downforce 2 clicks. I knew people will be taking full advantage so I should too



Q. You’ve been tipped by many to win D2. However, we seen no sign of that pressure getting to you today. Was you feeling it out there?

A. I was feeling quite a lot of pressure today, especially after the restart. Army defended really well for a long time and the pressure was building to get passed him, unfortunately for him he made a mistake at t11 which allowed me through. At that point the pressure dropped dramatically and I felt much more relaxed.


2nd place - Army

Q. Great finish in 2nd behind V5. How are you feeling about this?

A. I’m happy with that. Definitely an improvement on last season where I finished 8th in the first race I think. It was the expected finishing position I suppose. I was much slower than V5 in pace and ever so slightly faster than Robert in 3rd. The only thing I'm disappointed by is that I didn't get to try my plan to win the race. Since I took the lead from turn 1, I managed to hold V5 behind for the complete first stint. I was then planning to undercut and emerge ahead after V5 pitted and then attempt to hold him off until the end. Unfortunately I made a slight mistake allowing him to get by on the lap when before my undercut stop.


Q. We had a restart after qualifying which meant drivers who qualified with a dry setup could 
change to a wet setup. Did you change anything?

A. 2. After the restart, I increased aero slightly but in hindsight I don't think it was enough. The car still felt rather unstable.



Q. It’s the first race of 15. You are expected to challenge for both titles. Do you think you can win either?

A. 3. I want to believe I can win the driver's but V5 is looking really strong and some drivers seem to have caught up to me like Robert. Though I'll wait a few more races before I am sure. On the other hand I think me and Stevo can still win the constructor's. I'd say we have a very good chance if we can get some consistent finishes in.



3rd Place - Robert 

Q. An amazing drive to P3 mate. Your pace would have surprised many. Did it surprise you?

A.First of all, thank you! Secondly, I have to be honest and say that it didn’t really surprise me as Australia is definitely my best track. I was mostly surprised by how close I got to Army at the end.



Q. We had a restart after qualifying which meant drivers who qualified with a dry setup could change to a wet setup. Did you change anything?

A. I’ll admit, even though I used basically the same setup I did in quali, I did lower the brake pressure, so sorry about that.



Q. After this amazing drive that was no fluke. Have you changed your goals for the season?

A.   I have to be realistic and admit that this was a one time thing. I don’t expect to be fighting for any more podiums this season. I’m focusing on my battle with Mark from now on
