Published

on

While the 2019 season hasn’t gone to plan for Walkinshaw Andretti United, Scott Pye is optimistic the Holden squad can rebound for the enduros.

After finishing 2018 a career-best seventh, Pye has fallen to 16th after nine events this season and has claimed just six top-10 finishes from 20 starts.

Proving car speed has been hard to come by for WAU, teammate James Courtney hasn’t fared much better with seven top-10 finishes.

Jamie Whincup has apologised for his heated comments directed towards race officials and has avoided a fine and race suspension following last weekend’s drama in New Zealand.

The matter has been closed following a discussion between Whincup, CAMS CEO Eugene Arocca and Supercars CEO Sean Seamer.

In a joint statement from Supercars and CAMS, all parties acknowledged that “mistakes were made” and “improvements are required” following the Safety Car drama which marred Race 24 at the ITM Auckland SuperSprint.

Lee Holdsworth has demanded an apology from Supercars officials following the Safety Car controversy which marred the weekend’s action in New Zealand.

However, the Tickford Racing driver also believes future actions similar to Jamie Whincup’s ill-fated decision to pass the Safety Car warrant race exclusion.

Whincup and Holdsworth were effective first and second in Sunday’s Race 24 at the ITM Auckland SuperSprint before the Triple Eight driver elected to illegally pass the Safety Car. Holdsworth, meanwhile, held station and lost track position to those pitting under yellow.

Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris set a dangerous precedent earlier in the season at the British Grand Prix drivers press conference, so it was only natural to pair them up again.

Renault driver Ricciardo derailed the Silverstone press conference in July after bringing McLaren teenage rookie Norris to tears over a very personal question.

At Singapore on Thursday, Norris came prepared to cop the Australian’s probing humour, but couldn’t even get past his first question from the floor.
