Van Gisbergen is on a career-best run, having won 14 of 23 races this season. Feeney has held his own, however, and has recorded 17 top 10 finishes in 23 finishes. Both drivers have finished every single racing lap in 2022.
Shell V-Power Racing Team
It's level pegging at DJR
12 Anton De Pasquale (1 win, 8 podiums) 11 Will Davison (1 win, 9 podiums)
Davison has De Pasquale’s measure in qualifying, but it is far more even in the race stakes. Both drivers have finished every single race this season, and De Pasquale edges Davison 12-11. Davison has 10 podiums to De Pasquale’s nine, but both drivers have a win each.
Waters is again leading Tickford's charge
14 Cam Waters (3 wins, 7 podiums) 2 James Courtney (2 podiums, 1 DNF) 1 Jake Kostecki (3 DNF) 0 Thomas Randle (4 DNF, 1 DNS)
Waters is again proving Tickford’s spearhead; he has claimed all three wins and seven poles for the full-time quartet, barring Zak Best’s wildcard Tailem Bend pole. Courtney has two podiums to his name, with Kostecki crossing the line ahead of his three teammates in the Albert Park opener.
Mostert has led WAU’s charge in 2022 as Percat battles to acclimatise with his new team. Mostert has won four races and has taken three additional podiums.
Kostecki returned to the rostrum at The Bend
13 Brodie Kostecki (2 podiums) 8 Will Brown (2 DNF)
It has been a challenging sophomore season for both drivers, and Kostecki has made a better fist of it. Kostecki scored podiums in the wet in Sydney and Tailem Bend. Brown’s best is surely just around the corner.
Brad Jones Racing
Heimgartner has been impressive for BJR
13 Andre Heimgartner (2 podiums, 3 DNF, 1 DNS) 2 Bryce Fullwood (1 DNF, 1 NC) 1 Jack Smith (2 DNF) 0 Macauley Jones
Heimgartner hit the ground running with speed in Sydney, and scored podiums in Perth and Winton. He also loomed to score trophies in Darwin and Townsville. First-year BJR driver Bryce Fullwood has shown glimpses of speed, but has been unable to make a dent in Heimgartner’s progress.
No podiums yet for Team 18 in 2022
9 Mark Winterbottom 7 Scott Pye (5 DNF, 2 DNS)
Pye has been the unluckiest driver this season, having been taken out three times and suffered mechanical dramas. When both drivers reach the chequered flag, it’s pretty even, with Winterbottom still chasing his first podium for Team 18 in his fourth season.
Six trophies and counting for Reynolds
17 David Reynolds (6 podiums, 1 DNF) 5 Lee Holdsworth (1 podium)
Reynolds has been outstanding in 2022, having scored six podiums and a pole. Holdsworth has struggled in qualifying, but manages to charge forward in races. However, he is already one step behind in the races given he starts much further behind Reynolds.
Matt Stone Racing
Hazelwood opened the season strongly
10 Jack Le Brocq (3 DNF) 10 Todd Hazelwood
It has been a season of two halves at MSR, with Le Brocq enjoying a solid run of form after a disastrous start to the season. Hazelwood is the driver in a rut, having started the season in and around the top 10.
Jacobson showed PremiAir's best at Albert Park
12 Garry Jacobson (3 DNF, 1 DNS) 5 Chris Pither 2 James Golding
Interestingly, Jacobson leads the race head-to-head despite being given his marching orders after Darwin. Jacobson did his best work at Albert Park with three top 10s. Golding has already put two higher finishes on Pither in two rounds as teammates.
