    That was/is Tim Edwards job. They have had a few instances of what I would call driver mismanagement. Even going back to freezing out Reynolds.

    Keeping the team working as a team is managements responsibility.
    The problem with society today, is that nobody drinks from the skulls of their enemies anymore.

    Championship is harder and I regard it more then Bathurst. But essentially Bathurst is the most watched....sorta helps being the best track in Oz if not the world.

    Doesn't sound like he is going to change any sooner.

    Story confident Coulthard will return to form.

    Story indicated his squad's evolution of set-up on the outgoing FG X Falcon in 2018 was not well-suited to Coulthard's driving style.

    "I think probably the best word to describe our set-up philosophy with Falcon last year would be to say it was 'bleeding edge'," Story explained.

    "To remain competitive week-in, week-out and be in the hunt for wins and podiums and ultimately the championship, we had to think outside the box and it was a case of not being able to turn up to a lot of events with something that we ran successfully the year prior.

    "It suited Scott more than it suited Fabs, and it's more of a stylistic thing.

    Letís hope so. Ryanís explanation makes sense, although it done highlight how adaptable Scott is.

    As i said in the Frosty thread.

    The very best of the best can drive around a less than perfect car and still win, the next level down require everything right to be successful.

    IMO, currently there's only 3 drivers in our series capable of carrying a car and winning, Scott, Jamie and Giz.
