Supercars has apparently launched an investigation into DJR Team Penske and Scott McLaughlin at the Adelaide 500 today after Red Bull didn’t put enough fuel into Shane van Gisbergen’s car in the final stop as well as why their Pedders control shock managed to get through the race when Shane’s didn’t.
The investigation was launched shortly after the chequered flag, with Supercars apparently looking at whether Scotty might have breached the wide-ranging “parity” regulations by putting enough fuel in his car to finish the race and ultimately winning it.
Head of Supercars Paulie the Parity Pelican told The Waterton Sports Chronicle he is of the opinion that it’s not really fair that McLaughlin gets to win a race that would have been won by Shane.
“Yeah, look, we think it’s really unfair of Team Penske to not screw up their pitstop when they had the chance. They know full well we’re trying to make it as easy as possible for Triple 8 to win this season.
“They really should have thought a bit about how it makes us feel when we work really hard on all these parity measures.” explained Paulie.
The pelican went on to explain that along with the investigation into why Team Penske put the right amount of fuel in their car, and why they managed to get through the race without suspension failure, they’ll also be pulling McLaughlin’s car to pieces overnight in a search for something, anything, to penalise him for.
