F1 driver coaching pushes Supercars Young Gun ahead of the Australian Grand Prix
Some off-season driver coaching from one of the world's best is beginning to pay dividends for Supercars Young Gun Cameron Waters.

Currently fifth in the Supercars drivers' standings, Waters is feeling sharper than ever ahead of this weekend's non-championship event at the Australian Grand Prix, thanks to some international driver training.

Over summer Waters spent time in the UK with respected driver coach Rob Wilson who's worked with some of the big names in Formula One including World Champion Nico Rosberg.

"Going to see Rob Wilson in the UK was great, he has coached a lot of world-class drivers and sort of brings back the fundamentals of driving and the way that driving style can impact the car, so it was super beneficial for sure," Waters said.

Monster Energy Racing team boss Tim Edwards shares a similar view but believes it's been a mixture of physical and mental preparation which saw Waters take a career best fourth at the Clipsal 500.

"Cam went and saw Rob [Wilson], who has coached the who's who of motorsport. We actually wanted to make it happen last year [the driver coaching], however he was booked out with Force India and Ferrari F1 teams. Whilst the coaching he completed there was great, Cam's also completed a lot of other things to reach where he was at during round one," Edwards commented.

Edwards is confident Waters has what it takes to go all the way in his career, marking the young signing as a future Supercars Champion.

"We hired Cam because we believe he can be a future champion of Supercars, and definitely as the seasons progress, we believe that he'll continue to elevate his game and become a championship contender," Edwards finished.

Waters also credits the Monster Energy Racing crew for his great start to the 2017 season.

"One season under my belt now, I know what to expect and I will be consistently pushing the #6 with more and more confidence," Waters added.

Action from the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix kicks off on Thursday at Albert Park with the Supercars hitting the track for Qualifying in the afternoon.
