That's easy pickings for Muroya, who is fast out there... but can tend to blow it
Third in 2015, he knows this track can be kind if he keeps a clear head
We're looking for a consistent performance today and just get through clean Muroya and you'll be through
The second half of the track is where it's at, so let's see if gate 6 is where he'll go green on the splits
Yep, the chicane worked well and he's got the lead...
And green again after gate 6-7!
Here we go! Come on Yoshi... it's a new personal best!
Epic racing from the Japanese pilot!
Matt Hall vs Hannes Arch up now!
This could go either way and Hall is into the track first to set the pace
Hall's looking good here, following in Muroya's wake here with a great manoeuvre between 6-7
Hall stops the clock in
Lamb still fastest out there so far but the final few pilots are very capable of smashing that so watch this space...
It's Arch up now with a very hard act to follow
It's red on the split times and we think we saw a wing stall... which will have cost him time in correcting that
Are we saying goodbye to a podium...
It's a 1:05.883 for Arch and an early bath :(
Much to the delight of our Australian fans with us here :)
Peter Podlunsek vs Martin Sonka next... and we don't want to make predictions, but...
Max last 10 min: 10 kts
Temperature: 18.2 ℃
Air Pressure: 1014.3 mbar
We've got virtually no wind here, says Bonhomme and that's why we're seeing such fast times
Kopfstein is still holding on to the fastest loser spot: "If we move to the Round of 8 then great, if we do it's a new story"
Podlunsek up first and he's new to the Master Class in 2016
His best bet is to play it safe, get through the track cleanly and hope Sonka makes a mistake
Let's see what he can do... it's great flying and he's demonstrating why he moved up this year
Those winglets! In total contrast his technical team has introduced upside down winglets... much to the intrigue of the other teams
