McConville, Grove win round two at Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix
Alex Davison has overcome a slow start to his Albert Park campaign to claim his first win of the Porsche Carrera Cup Australia season in Sunday’s race four, while Cam McConville and Stephen Grove were the ultimate round winners at the popular Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix event.
Starting on pole position, McConville took the early race lead however Davison gained the upper hand on lap four, moving through to the lead of the race and ultimately claimed the race win – his 45th Carrera Cup victory and 12th at the Albert Park circuit.
Davison struggled earlier in the weekend after a poor qualifying performance, however he was happy to show his true pace and eventually finish on the round podium.
“Obviously we had some work to do after a poor qualifying, which was disappointing because I knew eighth place didn’t reflect our true pace. I tried to battle through the first two races without taking too many risks and luckily got myself onto the front row for the last race. The car was pretty quick in the opening two races however, for the last two races, the car was the best 991 GT3 Cup car I’ve ever driven,” said Davison.
