V8 Supercars: Austin 400 – Race 15 qualifying; Red Bull, Coulthard stay on top

The Australian V8 Supercars took to the track this morning with one puzzle to solve: how to break the Jamie Whincup, Craig Lowndes (both Red Bull Racing Australia, Holden), Fabian Coulthard (Lockwood Racing, Holden) stranglehold on the podium.
