Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin has batted away criticism following his dominant run to the title, claiming 2019 has “been the best year of my life”.

The DJR Team Penske driver has executed an almost flawless title defence, claiming a record 18 wins this season, including a maiden Bathurst 1000 victory alongside Alex Premat.

At the last event at Sandown, McLaughlin clinched the 2019 title ahead of this weekend’s season finale at Newcastle, becoming the 13th multiple champion and 10th consecutive champion in the sport’s history.

However, he was subdued in his celebrations with the Bathurst event just one source of controversy this season, with negative headlines plaguing McLaughlin’s successful campaign.

Citroen is leaving the World Rally Championship with immediate effect after six-times world champion Sebastien Ogier announced his departure from the team, the French manufacturer said on Wednesday.

Citroen Racing said it had made the decision “due to the absence of a first-class driver available for (the) 2020 season” but commercial factors were also a major consideration.

Motorsport.com said Ogier was expected to be announced as a Toyota driver on Monday.

Toyota’s Estonian Ott Tanak won the driver’s title in Spain last month, ending Ogier’s six-year reign, but announced four days later that he was joining Hyundai for 2020.
