1980 Formula One world champion and A1 GP Australia seat holder Alan Jones is a tosser, in terms of his driver selection process, as the Australian drive for this weekend at Sydney's Eastern Creek Raceway was determined between Christian Jones and Will Davison by the toss of a coin.

Friday saw Christian take to the track in the first hour-long session and Davison take to the track in the second. Jones went eighteenth fastest, whilst Davison was sixteenth. As has been the team's tactic, the end of play on Friday was when the squad decides who would be handling driving duties and the team boss reckoned it was so close a toss of a coin was the only way forward.

"Tossing a coin might seem an unorthodox way of deciding or resolving such and important decision," explains Alan Jones. "But there was very little between the drivers on the telemetry."

Davison went on to set the fastest time part way through the Saturday practice session at Eastern Creek in the A1 Grand Prix Team Australia car as adorned with Fosters livery since the last round as part of a sponsorship agreement between the beer brand and the squad.
