I agree tha VASC should make the data used to make the decision public for transparency, but they aren’t making the decision based off results, but based on whether there is an inherent advantage for the Mustang over the other models. If Scott McLaughlin wins again moving forward, there won’t be more changes unless they have the data to prove that the model is quicker. Whilst it is extremely disappointing that Supercars are being reactive rather than proactive, it is better late than never. As to what happens if a Holden wins at Perth, if an inherent advantage is found changes will be made and if not, nothing will happen. Also, we are 10 races into the season, not 4 (sorry if I misunderstood you there).

Further Ford aero changes are a disappointment

“When will the acknowledgement of individual teams’s performance occur?”

The parity changes are based on data that has been analysed relating to the Mustang’s performance relative to the other models. This means, as Supercars have said themselves, that technical parity rather than sporting parity is being pursued. These changes aren’t designed to equalise DJRTP alone, but rather the equipment they are using. DJRTP will still be expected to be competitive going forward. The changes are being made due to technical data, not lap times, number of poles or wins or championship positions.

Whilst it is disappointing that Supercars made mistakes in the first place, it is better to make these changes now and let the season be competitive going forward than let pre season incompetence lead to a season dominated by one manufacturer in a boring manner.

Further Ford aero changes are a disappointment

Indycar is thriving due to going back to the core Motorsport value of good, wheel to wheel racing that still maintains integrity and without having gimmicks such as stage racing. F1 should take note of what close racing and a spread of potential winners (without having to many winners to dilute the series) can do!

More good news for IndyCar as season 2019 approaches
