Craig Lowndes on his Supercars future: My confidence is back

Published

on

SUPERCARS veteran Craig Lowndes is confident he’s “got the ingredients” to fight at the front of the field this season after an encouraging, if low-key, start to 2018 in Adelaide.

Lowndes’ Adelaide was shaped by two poor ARMOR ALL Qualifying performances – 15th on Saturday and 17th on Sunday – from which he recovered to ninth and seventh in the races.

While appearing to be a continuation of his qualifying struggles from last season, the 43-year-old says that small mistakes in both sessions masked his true speed.

Tagging the Turn 8 wall in the Saturday session and running wide at the final turn on Sunday ruined his best laps, which he says were on target to make the top 10 each time.

Although needing to clean up his driving, Lowndes left Adelaide highly encouraged by the combination of the ZB Holden and the return to the 2016-specification tyre.

Just when you thought the Michael Schumacher updates couldn’t get any thinner — the latest breaking news on the F1 legend has come from Italian Big Brother.

Model and TV presenter Elisabetta Gregoraci is a contestant on the reality TV show and the ex-wife of Flavio Briatore — Schumacher’s former boss at the Benetton F1 team, who he drove for in the early 1990s before moving to Ferrari.

She claims the seven-time world champion, who suffered severe brain injuries after a skiing accident in the French Alps in 2013, can only communicate with his eyes, and is being cared for in a Spanish villa.

Gregoraci said during an episode of Big Brother Schumacher was moved from his home in Switzerland into a luxurious property on the Mediterranean island of Majorca, which has been transformed into a hospital — with only a few visitors allowed.
