Bathurst 1000, V8 Supercars 2019: Scott McLaughlin, results, winner, Fabian Coulthard, safety car, crash

Published

on

Scott McLaughlin was crowned Bathurst champion for the first time in his career on Sunday afternoon, along with his teammate Alex Premat, but the actions of his other teammate were branded “disgraceful”.

The safety car completed nearly the same number of laps as some of the drivers in a dramatic race and it was what happened as it retreated back to the pits following the crash of American wildcard Alexander Rossi on lap 134 that caused the most controversy.

With McLaughlin stuck in an epic battle with Jamie Whincup, his teammate in the No.12 car Fabian Coulthard took one for the team by holding up the rest of the field while the No.17 car gained a track advantage on his rivals.
