Lewis Hamilton is fast closing in on a sixth Formula 1 world title but how soon before the end of the season can he clinch the crown?

The Mercedes driver’s ninth victory of the year in Russia moved him 73 points clear of Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas and 107 points ahead of next-nearest challenger Charles Leclerc.

Hamilton cannot clinch the title at this weekend’s Japanese GP — but he can knock all drivers bar Bottas out of mathematical contention.

It’s runaway Supercars series leader Scott McLaughlin’s championship to lose.

But motorsport great Mark Skaife says the jury is still out on whether the all-conquering Ford driver can extend his record-breaking winning run by claiming a maiden Bathurst 1000 title at Mount Panorama on Sunday.

Seven-times King of the Mountain Craig Lowndes is the talk of the fans this week as he makes his return behind the wheel as an enduro co-driver after retiring from full-time duties last year.

The Pramac Racing rider accidentally triggered the kill switch and shut down his bike before the start of the warm-up lap, and was forced into a pit lane start.

Supercars: Safety Car chaos still a threat at Bathurst 1000, says Jamie Whincup

Published

on

He has put the last round Safety Car controversy behind him but Supercars star Jamie Whincup fears another could rear its head at the Bathurst 1000 on Sunday.

Seven-time series champion Whincup avoided a ban for an extraordinary outburst aimed at officials after he became embroiled in Safety Car chaos at last month’s Auckland SuperSprint round.

The four-time Bathurst champion passed the Safety Car without permission after being incorrectly identified as the race leader, receiving a drive-through penalty before finishing a distant 16th.
