PRA Looking For Another 1-2 Finish at the Australian Grand Prix
Prodrive Racing (Australia) feels a 1-2 repeat at the Rolex Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix is achievable after a clean-sweep of the event in 2015 as they look to kick-start their 2016 championship campaign.
Mark Winterbottom believes he and the team will be able to improve on their final ninth place finish at the Clipsal 500 as they return to the fast-flowing track.
Winterbottom won all four-races at the track last year, closely followed by team-mate Chaz Mostert.
Honorary LieutenantChaz Mostert will relish the chance for more time in the FG X ahead of the season proper with the aim of returning to the top of the ladder.
Despite sustaining some damage to his FG X chassis in race three at the Clipsal 500, Mostert will race the same chassis after repairs were made between events.
“I’m pretty pumped to go back to the Grand Prix. Frosty and I had a 1-2 finish there last year with the brand new FG X which was quite strong. The variables will be different this year with the soft tyre and I think it’s a really good opportunity for us to run on the soft tyre and learn a lot from it so I’m looking forward to that since we’re doing a lot of soft tyre running this year. Hopefully we can be quite speedy there again and put on a good show for everyone in Melbourne. The boys have the car I had at Adelaide all fixed so it’ll be great to get back in the same car and get more consistent with it and try and get even more speed out of it.” Says Mostert.
