Brazilian F1 GP, Carlos Sainz podium, McLaren, F1 2019, Lewis Hamilton penalty

Carlos Sainz’s first F1 podium finish has officially been confirmed at the Brazilian GP – ending McLaren’s five-year wait for a return to the top three.

More than two hours after the conclusion to an epic Brazilian GP, and over an hour after Lewis Hamilton was demoted from what was third place after taking to the podium, Sainz was formally confirmed in third himself after being cleared in a post-race investigation over yellow flags.

While the Spaniard missed out on the official podium ceremony, he and his jubilant McLaren team did make the Interlagos rostrum where Sainz was presented with the third-place trophy earlier given to Hamilton.

Supercars will stage a further three days of aero homologation testing in the new year ahead of the 2020 season.

Last week, the category ran an extensive five-day aero test using an updated Vehicle Control Aerodynamic Testing (VCAT) process at Oakey Army Aviation Centre in Queensland.

Following the test – with an eye on shedding approximately 12 percent of downforce from the 2019 cars – Supercars signed off on new aero changes for both the Ford Mustang and the Holden Commodore, with the category’s head of motorsport Adrian Burgess initially satisfied with the results.

Rick Kelly will make a return to the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour next tear to lead a star-studded line-up in a Castrol-backed Aston Martin GT3.

The 2006 Supercars champion will form a super line-up alongside DTM star Jake Dennis and five-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon in the R Motorsport entry.

Dennis returns with R Motorsport after leading a competitive campaign for the team at the 20119 Bathurst 12Hour, with the Briton finishing second on debut.

Kelly last competed in the once-round-the-clock race in 2016 and finished second in a Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3, while Kiwi ace Dixon will make his Bathurst 12 Hour debut.

It’s a formidable line-up, and Kelly was excited to join two of world motorsport’s leading lights at Mount Panorama, a scene of two Bathurst 1000 triumphs for the 36-year-old in 2003 and 2004.
