BAR Putting Melbourne Behind Them

Wednesday March 14th, 2001

After a disastrous first race of the season in Australia, British American Racing will be hoping for improved fortunes in Malaysia.

Flying debris from Jacques Villeneuve's fifth lap crash in Melbourne caused the death of a marshal, and the incident will be hard for the British team to forget.

"The whole team are very happy to be in Malaysia and putting Australia behind them," said BAR managing director Craig Pollock.

"We feel that we have been able to make some positive changes," he continued. "And the warm weather suits the characteristics of our car.

"With that in mind, we are looking forward to a very strong result here in Malaysia."

The team was hit with more bad news at the end of the Australian race when Olivier Panis' impressive fourth place finish was cancelled out by a time penalty for passing under yellow flags.

Technical director Malcolm Oastler will be hoping for better luck this time. "After the events in Australia," commented Oastler, "we hope to have a trouble-free weekend here in Malaysia."
