V8 Supercars news 2019: Ford Mustang, Holden Commodore, changes, parity, Ryan Story, Will Davison, Loud Pedal podcast

Published

on

DJR Team Penske boss Ryan Story and Tickford Racing’s Will Davison have both bemoaned the lack of credit the two teams racing the Ford Mustang are receiving in comparison to how Triple Eight’s dominance was received in previous years.

Championship leader Scott McLaughlin noted how his team should have been receiving more plaudits for the work they have done in taking him to eight race wins from 12 so far this season following his latest victory at the Perth SuperNight.

Since the introduction of the Mustang and its subsequent dominance, there has been a lot of criticism of the perceived lack of parity which has resulted in changes to the centre of gravity after Melbourne and the aerodynamics prior to Perth.

F1 news 2021, Monaco Grand Prix, cancelled, Canada, Azerbaijan, reports, race calendar, latest

Published

on

Monaco Grand Prix organisers have insisted that the iconic Formula One race will go ahead this season, despite whispers that it would suffer a second cancellation in as many years.

Like the Australian Grand Prix last year, the Monaco edition was shelved due to COVID-19 as F1 decided to focus on ready-built circuits to fill the makeshift calendar, rather than temporary street circuits.

And with the Aus GP now being shifted from its traditional home as the season curtain raiser to a new November date, Monaco has now come under the spotlight.

A Dutch newspaper has claimed that Monaco, along with Azerbaijan and Canada, is in danger of being removed from the 2021 calendar as F1 again panics over the street races and the time it takes to build infrastructure for those events given the ongoing COVID pandemic.

In the early years of his career, Nick Percat went from winning Bathurst on his first attempt in 2011 – the first rookie in 30 years to do so – to winning the Australian Formula Ford championship and breaking Steven Richards’ record for most race wins.

It hasn’t all been smooth sailing since then, with the veteran facing a turbulent journey with mixed results.

Talking to FoxSports.com.au, the 32-year-old opens up on the decision to re-sign with Brad Jones Racing, what the future of Supercars could look like, and that disqualification from the 2020 Bathurst 1000.
