Jamie Whincup = GOAT

The Michael Schumacher of F1
The Richard Petty of NASCAR
The Valentino Rossi of Moto GP

The best of all time. Better then Peter Brock, Skaife, DJ.
Nobody will beat his 7 WORLD titles.

Whincup is pretty good. He tends to get overlooked by fans as he is rather boring. I honestly could not remember any of Whincup's titles, apart from the latest one, it's just a haze!

Based on the numbers, the championships won, the races won, the pole positions, Greatest Of All Time is the perfect description for Mr Whincup.

Two championship wins in a Ford.
Five championship wins in a Holden.

Four championship wins as Team Vodafone.
Three championship wins as Red Bull.

In all years bar one able to smoke his teammate(s) in the same gear.

Consistent. Reliable. Able to lift his level.

And he still has a year to go on his current contract to go get more results.

Greatest Of All Time.

Yep.

It helps he's in the best resourced team but he is very good, one of the best.

Yeah I'd be a lot happier to throw out the GOAT tag if he'd won a championship, or even a race, with another team

Of course. But Maya and Sumerians and Middle Kingdom (Egypt) had similar pomp and circumstance. Not much left now!

Even the pyramids have been raided of their capping that originally made them nice and smooth, even so jagged pyramids showing the underlying block construction are still more impressive than the eroded mud structures of Sumerians...

No wonder emperors like building monuments to their magnificence, it's roughly the only way they can hope to be remembered post-civilisation!

Whincup might be good, but could he win a title in a Walkinshaw sled... It's hard to say...

Like Brock, it is pretty easy to look good when you have the best gear and the best support in the paddock - just sayin'

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Whincup opens up on ‘scary’ personal sacrifices

Gave up love and alcohol for this championship

I already thought he was the Goat. Still would be great to see him at another team

Who's first then? Dale Earnhardt or Jimmie Johnson? All 3 were at prime from different eras with different rule sets, which I'd like to think that some applies to Oz drivers, too.

Always a good conversation, as to who's the greatest, but it never comes to a conclusive decision.
