Did Bostrom practice? Where's his time? If its below top ten, then he must have been breaking in a motor....

he was 15th at 1m 37.128s, the conditions down there would be very difficult for those not use to the track. the high speed track and wind don't mix.

I'm sure Bostrom will improve but it's obvious he doesn't mix will with this track.
