With Scott McLaughlin opening a big lead in the championship how long before we see SM cop penalties to try reduce his championship lead?
It's happened before.

If you can't beat them, sook until you get the rules changed.

Has happened before, but I don't see him making all those mistakes again that deserved penalties.

True. Drivers in the title hunt have received inconvenient penalties. Including T8 drivers.

Can anyone produce any actual statistics on penalties incurred by championship leaders vs chasers?

I do hope this does NOT occur, if it does its clear evidence its not about the sport its about the TV.

SC missed a chance to hit him with points on the weekend with fines so maybe this concern is/maybe unfounded. I a sure SM will be trying hard to keep clean, but if he slips up they don't go overboard in the penalty application. If he can get to a 600+ point lead it would take some "penalising" to get him back to the field and that would be pretty stupid of S/C if they pulled that stunt.

You mean with the poster and the burnout?

Ford planned the poster knowing permission is required and knowing the fine. They also instructed Scott to do a burnout beyond the allocated burnout area - why?

Ford *wants* to be penalised because they like the fan reaction.

I wouldn’t put it past them to be analyse the rule book searching for ways to get more of the same.

Yes, imagine if it was 150 points Don't really care about team fines like these good PR result as we have seen. Just hoe they [SC] don't go "looking" for something to ping him for just to make the points closer

Delusional.
Yep Ford got on his team radio and said do a big burn out right in front the control tower.

I didn't think she was a fat lady, just not skinny. Maybe Virgin can get their lovely crew member back singing the National Anthem and overrule that meanie who temporarily runs Supercars.

The only way that I could see Scotty not handling the Championship trophy is if it is a posthumous award and that is extremely unlikely and certainly not desirable.
