Bathurst 12 Hour: Scott McLaughlin on the differences between his McLaren and his Supercar

Published

on

THE fastest Supercars driver around Mount Panorama had wide eyes after his first day in the fastest sports car ever to lap the legendary circuit.

The early end to the day’s running meant Scott McLaughlin finished ninth on the day’s combined timesheets but with nothing but praise for both his new toy, the No. 47 YNA Autosport McLaren, as well as his usual DJR Team Penske Falcon.

“Obviously the (McLaren’s) aero is just huge,” he said. “Across the top you’re carrying throttle where you’d normally be dabbing the brake a little bit. It’s really nice, but it’s full on!

Not content with dominating Down Under, Scott McLaughlin is set to be the top dog in America within three years.

That’s the time frame for success Team Penske has placed on their newest IndyCar recruit.

“Tim Cindric (Team Penske President) said a couple of top tens, top 15 next year, maybe push the top five bracket in ‘22 and then if we can challenge for wins and potentially a championship in my 3rd year that would be good progression,” McLaughlin told Fox Sports’ Loud Pedal Podcast.

F1 2020: Lewis Hamilton vs Michael Schumacher, the problem for British star’s legacy

Published

on

Lewis Hamilton may go on to win 10 world titles, but his status as the greatest could be undermined by a lack of true rivals, according to two of Britain’s best-known former racers.

Martin Brundle and Damon Hill both agreed that the six-time champion is a relentless and deserved record-breaking success story, Brundle saying he felt privileged to witness his feats.

Hamilton last Sunday became the sport’s most successful driver when he claimed a record 92nd win, moving one clear of seven-time champion Michael Schumacher’s 14-year record of 91 wins.

Hill, the 1996 world champion, believes Hamilton needs to be challenged by and beat another driver of the same calibre if he is to silence the doubters.

“There’s a risk that Lewis’s achievements will be measured against the intensity of his competition,” said Hill, who had to beat Schumacher to win his title.
