    Are you sure you don't want high-res pictures of Yumi?

    Because that I can do for you.

    And race one is underway. As usual, Whincup is already off in the lead making a bit of a gap on the rest of the field. And a huge pack of cars has already pitted after one lap, Whincup has lost a few spots due to a problem getting one of the wheels on.

    Well, the racing was pretty meh. It wasn't nearly as intense as it was planned to be.

    Still, it was nice to see FPR perform. As Tim Edwards said during the broadcast, Albert Park was the round the team considered to be their worst in 2011, so a good result here would be construed as a sign of progress. And coming off the back of their strong showing in Adelaide, it only reaffirms that they've gotten their act together.

    Since Campbell Little joined FPR it was a question of when - not if - they'd get their act together. The start of this season points to them finally getting their act together, since they usually have a very poor start to the season.

    Chrysler won't be joining the V8 Supercars grid in 2013.

    Good Nissan is just as Aussie as ford or Holden these days. Just look at the heritage prior to 1993.

    I have never seen a crash like that in any form of motorsport. It's a stack-up

    Good job Channel Ten stalling for time. I really want to know what Angela Bishop, entertainment industry soft-news "reporter" extraordinare thinks of female Formula 1 drivers ...

    I expect Simon McNamara will a) write the result off as not being important because it's a non-championship round while b) trying to buy Ford.

    Greg Murphy has been ruled out of the weekend's round at Symmons Plains.
    His seat this weekend will be filled by Dunlop Series driver David Russell.

    Yep, was watching. :D

    The stream I have to watch has great audio, but the video freezes every few seconds which is annoying. :(

    Even though I'm a Holden fan, I must say it's a refreshing change to see someone other than the Triple 8 commodores winning races lately.

    Garth Tander is out of today's race! He came down with food poisoning last night, so his wife is going to drive his car today.
