Brown’s honest admission from Albert Park finale

WILL Brown has profusely apologised for the one blunder in an otherwise sublime Albert Park event for Erebus Motorsport.

Brown was battling Chaz Mostert for the lead in Race 4 of the Melbourne SuperSprint on Sunday when he spun at Turn 12 and backed into the wall on driver’s right.

He had just passed Mostert at the previous corner, only for the Walkinshaw Andretti United star to criss-cross and regain the inside line.

Brown bravely tried to hang on around the outside but lost control.

Given the tyre trouble Mostert went on to encounter, and the fact they were ahead of Bryce Fullwood at the front of the super soft tyre starters, there’s every chance Brown would have crossed the finish line in at least fourth (as Fullwood ultimately did) without the spin.

That would have put Brown third in the championship; instead he finished two laps down and dropped to fifth in the points.

“I absolutely threw it away all by myself in that last one,” he said.

“So sorry to everyone at Coca-Cola Racing and all of our fans, that was completely my fault.

“I just stuffed up so I’ll learn from it and move onto Perth and hopefully we’ll go better.

“I think I’m fourth or fifth in the championship now, Brodie (Kostecki) is first, and to be leading the teams’ championship is really good.”

Erebus accounted for half of the 12 podium placings on offer at Albert Park, with two to Brown and Kostecki finishing top three in all four races.
