To quote the ATSB report:

"During the commencement of the missed approach the "too low gear" GPWS warning activated." (my bold)

So the GPWS did not cause them to do the go around they were already doing it.

Come back when you know what you are talking about and stop bashing Qantas crews with comments like:

Now suppose....crew were busy dealing with some other issue caused by inadequate maintenance and ignored the warning?
GIVE ME STRENGTH!! Yeah, just ignore warnings.. are you serious?

This incident is not a non event, a mistake was made, corrected, and an investigation will follow to determine reasons in order to help the said mistake not happen again and life will go on. Building straw men won't help anyone.
