Whincup: I’ve got plenty left in the tank

Published

JAMIE Whincup has declared his bid to win a record-extending eighth Supercar’s championship is alive with the V8 immortal claiming he can still chase down DJR Team Penske man-of-the-moment Scott McLaughlin.

As he prepares to strap down for his 450th championship race — the milestone to be racked up at the Darwin Triple Crown this weekend — Whincup warned his rivals against writing him off in a defiant response to a recent run of V8 outs.

The Red Bull Holden Racing star slumped to his second worst race finish of the year last round in Winton and is sitting 5th on the championship ladder, 364 points behind leader McLaughlin.

F1 France: Pierre Gasly, Esteban Ocon crash, video

Published

THREE French drivers started Sunday’s revived French Grand Prix full of dreams — but they soon turned to nightmares as they accused each other of a self-inflicted first lap crash.

Pierre Gasly of Toro Rosso blamed compatriot Esteban Ocon of Force India for their collision.

Ocon disagreed and, instead, blamed Romain Grosjean of Haas. The first two were forced to retire by the incident at Turn Three of the opening lap, but Grosjean — the instigator of the carnage, according to the race stewards — escaped lightly and went on to finish the race.

Alas, for him, he came home 11th and extended his unwanted record as the only driver in the paddock not to have scored a point in 2018.
