Press Snoop: What a difference a day makes

The latest from the Australian Grand Prix paddock from Lynne Huntting

What a difference a day makes at Albert Park in Melbourne for the Wednesday of the Rolex Australian Grand Prix weekend.

The scorching temperatures dropped nearly thirty degrees, with a cloudy breezy day. Construction continued at a feverish pace.

Meanwhile in pit lane, there were signs of activity. The top tier teams were all but invisible, hiding behind barrier walls. Further on down pit lane, there was a more 'Open Door' policy.

Thursday morning the F1 teams start their scrutineering process, while all of the weekend's support races take to the track, including the popular V8 Supercars.

The V8's have their own pit lane, further on down the line from F1. All the teams were feverishly working away with no restrictive barriers to prevent viewing. On site were several drivers, including points leader, Craig Lowndes/Red Bull Racing Australia Holden; third place points holder, Will Davison/Pepsi Max Crew FPR Ford; and RBRA Development Driver, Rookie Casey Stoner, who is only a Rookie on four wheels, having won two MotoGP World Championships.
