“I've not won more races [in 2011] for one specific reason, which is not anything to do with what we've been doing. It needs a big change, however I do believe TOCA are aware of that and I'm sure they want to change the status quo
at the moment; it's all based on trying to keep the two formulas alive until the end of 2012 when we will all go turbo – but I'm sure it will get sorted.
“The frustrating thing from my point-of-view is that there's an awful lot of propaganda and nonsense being spoken, predominantly by the Honda drivers. All the garbage that came out of their mouths ahead of Thruxton about how the world was ending [when the maximum turbo boost was reduced] – and then they put it on pole by a second. Let's get real.
“We were all complaining last year – Matt Neal included – about the Team Aon Fords, but the new turbo cars have more boost than the LPG cars and no restrictor. It's so far out-of-bed. I had team managers that run turbo cars come up to me at Donington Park saying, 'we know it's wrong'. Even the team managers know, and if Matt Neal had any fibre of honesty about him, he would say it, too.
“Right now, unless we qualify on pole, we cannot win race one or two. All we can hope to do is luck in with the reverse grid – and that's not right. We should be in a position to challenge for pole at Oulton Park – but if nothing is done, we simply won't be able to. We don't want to be gifted wins; we just want to be able to compete.”
