Whincup gets good start at Abu Dhabi 2010 event

Jamie-WhincupV8 Supercar champion Jamie Whincup availe advantage from a couple of factors besides his good strategy to give a good start in the 2010 Abu Dhabi event. He bagged first victory in the Saturday's first 200km race of the season at the Yas Marina circuit by taking advantage from the mistakes of his opponents.

The three-time champion is currently ahead of Team Vodafone team-mate Craig Lowndes and Ford Performance Racing's Mark Winterbottom, proving his expertise and high spirits. He effectively managed his mistakes for winning the strategic battle between him and rival Lowndes.

Whincup, visibly happy over his performance, added, "I certainly hope so. It's been a fantastic start. I and the team are a bit shocked at the moment; we didn't expect to start off so strong."

Last year's runner-up Will Davison failed to do well while his team-mate and third in last year's championship, Mr. Garth Tander did some better.
