    Wow, what a fantastic race! Yes, partially due to the fact that Ruiz somehow pulled the win out of the bag, despite qualifying 8th, spinning and almost giving me a heart attack twice by jumping all over the kerb and somehow making his way between Klaas and the back marker, which turned out to be the race winning move.

    I was hoping to be back challenging this year, but didn’t expect the first race win of the season, especially after qualifying. However, I expect both Downton and DS Mathershaw to be back stronger next race.

    Also, that’s the first time any team has won twice in Australia, I believe.

    Does look like there are a clear top 3 teams, with varying results with our second drivers, but should make for an interesting season. I imagine it to change around come qualifying and again for the race, but I think it will be an exciting race.

    @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1 I, personally, love it. The black lines kind of make it look cartoonish, but it just adds to the charm. Excellent job!

    @robocat – Sorry for the long wait, but it shouldn’t be much longer :)

    @robocat – I’m sure one of my recent messages contained helmet sponsors and driver uniforms, didn’t they?

    I’m shocked by our pace. I thought top three was possible, but not this close to the front. Obviously it’s not set in stone, but certainly a better start than I imagined.

    That’s actually pretty close to where I expected to be, though AMR seem to crop up a little higher than expected. Knew we wouldn’t be back on top, but should be a fun fight.

    FRANKLIN ANNOUNCE SECOND DRIVER

    Whilst not exactly news, Franklin have finally revealed that Jochem Van Snelheid will in fact race alongside Enrique Ruiz for the 2017 season. Sources indicate it is just a one year deal, giving Franklin the option to assess his abilities before talking about future opportunities.

    Questions will be asked whether he will be able to keep up with Ruiz and whether or not it was sensible for the three time Champions to let Wagner go.

    I agree with @redmist – I mean, let’s face it, the record speaks for itself, we all know I’m the best ;)

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

    Quite happy with the performance of our juniors, given that there were cars that were definitely faster than us.

    Huge congratulations to @mathers for the title win, along with Simon. It was inevitable we would be beaten eventually, and DS in whichever guise have been close throughout.

    Another congratulations goes to FUN for having a very good last race, enabling them third in the table. Definitely wasn’t a strongest race, and that cost us dearly. Had the rain stayed, I think it would have been a different story, but no point dwelling on that.

    I do think the formula has been all but worked out now, as will be seen next season.

    Unfortunately everything for me stems from my poor decision making in 2015 in the midst of reliability troubles, which have cost me the chance at this season’s title.

    Nevertheless, it will be a while before anyone steals our mantle of most successful team :P
