The silly thing is that the order could have been reset while under the Safety Car, but it is difficult not to draw the conclusion that Race Control had no idea Whincup had overtaken the Safety Car until the replays appeared on the TV.

But the only fair outcome is to declare the race null and void.

And a drive through penalty is hardly sufficient penalty for a driver who willfully ignored the instructions of an official.

But while we still wait for penalties for drivers that crash into fellow competitors under safety car conditions or set the pit lane on fire I won't be holding my breath.

Whincup surely wins the prize for dopy dumbo of the year!

Passes another safety car under flashing lights.

Someone remind him he drives for one of the best teams of all time. Lots of smart boffins like Dutton and Dane to sort out race order with officials. They can also work out fuel economy.....

His stupidity lead to events that cost a lot drivers.

Given is comments after the race. Fine and points perhaps?

Is the performance of race direction questionable given its geriatric leadership?

Well done DJRTP - 17 wins in a season for car 17, an all time record; and achieved despite ridiculous adversity ("parity").

The way I saw it was at the deployment of the safety car Scott Mac (the then leader) was coming in, which meant while he was being serviced Whincup etc wouldve passed the pits while McLaughlin was in there, meaning Whincup (who had already pitted) was back in the lead on corrected order. The safety car knew who to pick up and tried. Once 888/Dane complained to Burgess and race control after Whincup took matters into his own hands is where the confusion started. In hindsight they shouldnt have waved the rest past as the order was correct with the exception of Whincup who was busy doing his own thing. A drive through and hold Whincup at pit exit until the field has passed wouldve put Jamie back on the correct lap, albiet at the rear of the field.

Give him a large fine or grid penalty for ignoring the safety car procedures next round. It's not as though he hasn't got enough laps to regain the deficit.

In 888/Dane's defence, as RD said in the interview. They couldn't see the safety car, but Jamie could. When Jamie was blowing up over the radio to the team, that he should be the leader. I'm tipping Jamie failed to tell his team he passed the safety car without a green light....

Had he told the team, or the team saw vision of it. I'll bet they would have screamed at him to redress.
