"The 28 year old kiwi has sustained the pressure. Scott McLaughlin, he's got 56. Whatever you got here. From pole to victory line. Scott McLaughlin doesn't. This is a weekend to remember for his IndyCar career Scott McLaughlin of Team Penske adding to the winners list. No, I think this is top three moment of my life. I'm not going to rank them, but they are. No, I can't say that because my wife would be mad. The top four, my wedding. My marriage. Beth is 1000 victory. My first championship. And if it's supercars and then my first victory in any car and to win on both sides the world's pretty cool and my phone is absolutely going ballistic in my pocket right now and I can't wait to respond a lot of messages. Welcome to our report. It is a great pleasure talking with a man who is probably more joyful than most in these parts of the world. That being Chris Jewell, the now X manager of Scotty McLaughlin, who is today not to the stocks of many of his countrymen in New Zealand and many of the people who would like to be his countrymen in Australia, Chris, it was a wonderful wonderful thing that happened. Yeah, it was so great to see you Scott. Have you first become? I'm on the streets of St. Petersburg. And I only got a bit of last to be honest. You know, have these things tend to go Tony. You break your dock and a few tend to fly on there out. So these are pretty tough championships to crack in a tough place to have a race. We didn't because the cars are out, so equally matched. But that was fantastic for him to get after a perfect start in the season. And sometimes you score your first poll and it ends in disappointment. But certainly didn't discuss, ironic. Unexpected, I think, you know, I felt like you back yourself, but in our pre event, we said top 7, you know, if we can come out of here with a solid top 7 and obviously the goal has changed last night, but it was just phenomenal the way that the car had rolled out of the truck and I felt like I could really do what I wanted to do with the car from the get go. And what that does is for confidence is a race driver is something that's just feels very special. And I knew halfway through that race that was somewhat a bad yellow or something that was really going to affect us. We knew that we were going to fight there the whole way and I just had to keep coming and control the rice myself and I felt like we did that until obviously the back markers made it pretty exciting, which would have been great for everyone at home, but not for me. But it was just a phenomenal weekend. Perseverance. It's just you just don't give up. You don't doubt yourself. I knew I could do it. I'd last night. I had a great sleep because I just said to myself, you know? I've done this before. I did it with a roof on my head. So now it's just a matter of just feeling it and seeing what I had today. And look, I had a great great start, got into it, got into a rhythm and why we went. So I'm very proud. Great for Dex imaging. It's their home race team Chevy gave us an awesome fuel mileage and drivability as we've said all weekend. Incredible thing of course that last year his best qualifying was a bit. He's based right finished was a podium and he has demonstrated this year that clearly the thing that he said that he needed to do and that was biggest qualifying up and boy did he do that. It was interesting because I came to pretty close on a little things open wheel overseas this time of the year and I was reading the same report that you may not referring to when he talked about the importance of qualifying and how well he always qualified in supercars championship world, but it was strange. He didn't have a pole position in it. I love series. And a couple of times he was within a couple of hundreds. And he used to say to me, God, when will I ever get a policy? He could almost do it by habit in a super car. So it was good to say that he actually did string it together because it is a qualifying category I guess to certain extent, but probably not so much so as it is in super cars because strategies and yellow flag, caution periods, et cetera can almost keep anybody anywhere in the field of chance to win at any time in the car such as the competitors in the field, but I think you'll be the open fuller conference right now. This was a lot of what I learned in the last year, what, you know, in and out laps being comfortable on cold tires, setting my anti roll bars. So I felt comfortable in the newer tire and then resetting it using my push to pass. I felt like last year really led me up to this moment. I'm going to say it was the hardest life of my career or the hardest stint, but it was probably very up and down probably the most up and down season of race in my career. Well, back in 2008, Chris, you got Scott McLaughlin into your management team and was working with him through the motor sports scholarship. How did he get onto your radar? Yeah. I was doing a lot of work with great movie in early 2000 with his career cut program and I was heavily involved in tasman motor sport and through the Hamilton car club, Greg admits why mcloughlin and Diana McLaughlin and Scott as the youngster. And I were moving to Melbourne with the business father and put together every New Zealand, which is a small, trucking company which turned into a very big trucking company. And I met Scott at a barbecue at Kevin Murphy, Greg starves place. And wine pitched to me for quite a while to get involved with Scott when he was in cots and I was GM but Bryce take at the time. So I really couldn't do much directly. When the opportunity for the bright scholarship started, we had two or three formula four drivers being run by brew and Beasley's team and Scott was our Carter and he was more than happy as we had to the card in the colors of food. So and he learned quite a lot working in the business at different rice meetings when he had time to do so I can still remember him doing the lap border batterson a pair of shorts as a 15 year old in the 1000. And he's having the writing back in from across speed line because you're not allowed out on pink bowl in a pair of shorts. So yeah, it was a good start and they went broad tech largely wound up at the end of 2008 albeit at existed for another year under authors of stone brothers racing, fielding the car. The first client I actually took on board, I would stop because I had the freedom to do so. And we started to develop the career path thereafter. And the risk they say is history, at least for the 5 or 6 years of modern day, I think that I had a direct involvement with them, but it was great to say that the transition he made from cash to supercars and then onwards from there. I felt like at the start I was like, oh, this is like how it used to not long ago, but it was very nice at the start being able to control my pace, especially against her to who was very quick and I knew I had his pace on the reds. It was just a matter of hitting my fuel number, which we were doing from the start of the race. Yeah, I mean, we just got into a rhythm, and then even when the yellow flag come out and we're back in the traffic there, it was just about me just knowing that hopefully if there's no yellows, we're on the preferred strategy, which we were. And it was about bringing it home and just for me it's all about just keeping calm. Particularly, you're the leader. She's not making anything any rash decisions. I can move it if you can make it. But if not, just relax and count the left down. What are the staggering things that I so vividly remember about meeting him in 2008 at Hamilton, the inaugural race meeting at that city track. Was his enthusiasm. He had the same boys charm, the same sort of doggy puppy like enthusiasm, Craig lounge, the great back in the early 90s when I met him the first time. And on broad enthusiasm that was just so intoxicating, he clearly showed that and of course there was that great time in 2012 when he made his debut in Gary Rogers Carr at with Alex brehmer was hit the side because he wasn't well at home bush. That was.

"Them in and take them out. And that's developed a lot of the last 15 15 plus years to providing the drivers with the best possible environment in which to apply their trade. So Jamie's been a massive massive part of that. He's OCD. There's no doubt about how he is routing driven, but he's also OCD. So as I said, like, he has to wear any boots. He's a roast boots at the start of the year because that's just for him it works. He's the only driver in pit Lana puts basically those boots. I suppose you can call them on on every time you get in or out of the car because again, they for him if that's just a routine and something that works for him. So yeah, for me, I think that OCD works as very well for him because, you know, he's a very methodical he's very driven by data and knowing what he's got is the best he can be. Coming up next, we look at Jamie's next step, triple 8 team principal. We haven't had the we haven't had time and it's for next year. But a good sit down to really plan out for the roles and responsibilities of everyone. What specific role Jamie will be doing in the garage?

Yeah, I mean, it means a lot. You know, through the years, a lot of reference this race is one of our majors. 600 miles around here is no easy task. It's basically the final type that we know people saw here. It was a great way to get the rest of the family. Inside motor sport broadcast on community radio and online at sport radio dot com dot AU. On this edition of inside supercars, we look at the future for Jamie wing cup as he heads to Beth as this weekend for his final start as a four time driver in the supercars series. While at the moment, I think we're everyone's always sitting in the sitting and waiting to make a decision whether he's going to I suppose one sense go cold Turkey and just get a step away from driving side of it and manage the team. Sort of a challenge. You didn't want to be known as one trick pony. Which is pretty good trick when you're the best driver in history. Yeah, the planets are aligned in terms of what I was thinking of when I needed to be able to step back the timing was appropriate. We hear from Graham wind cup, Roland Dane, Craig lowndes, golf tender, and Scott Gollum. Graham wind cup is the proud uncle, and partly responsible for setting Jamie on his path to greatness. He said that the success his nephew has achieved has been celebrated by more than his family. Everybody, you know, not just family, but close family friends, you know? He's done an incredible thing. To retrieve what he has and he's still like, he's still lucky he's running second in the championship manner he's retirement year. He still puts the thing on Paul. You know, he still throws in some incredible laps. And he still doing very, very well. Like he's stepping out at the top of his game, and I'm sure if Jamie throws head out there, there'd be several teams would love him to come and drive their cars and next couple of years. Scott gollan has justice sister Jamie in his autobiography drive of a lifetime, and he spoke about how Jamie has approached his next chapter. Yeah, absolutely. He was not obsessed, but he saw it as a challenge. He didn't want to be known as one trick pony. He, which is pretty good trick when you're the best at because driver and history, but he was very about the future. He wanted to jump into things and he always talked about his dad. You know, the one way to get his dad to do something is to tell Kelly that he couldn't build that fence over there. So then he'd go and do it. And I think Jamie's a bit the same. At Triple H, Jamie has shared the garage with the most popular driver of all time Craig lands, and now, with one of the most popular kiwi drivers Shane bankers Bergen. Graham wind cup said that Jamie understood the importance of having a strong teammate. When you've got a tough teammate, it raises the level. Like you're always out to boot your teammate. He's the first guy you've got to beat. And, you know, they are great teammates, you know, the team is everything to them. And if Jamie can't win Shane wants to win and vice versa, you know, they are there to have the trip like tires, one, two, as much as possible. And it does. You know, they push each other hard and there's no secrets, you know, I've seen that. There's no secrets with anybody I'm doing this, try this, you know and that's how it really should be. Jamie's first teammate Craig lounge admires many aspects of their relationship. But there has always been that one thing that has stuck in his cruel. But there is some things that Jamie does that used to frustrate me. And I have a laugh about it because it still happens today. We shine, which is basically that, you know, if you've got to be in an appearance at a ten o'clock at 9 59 and 59 seconds, Jamie will then decide to go and go to the function, but it takes, you know, it doesn't have taken over it's going to take 5 minutes to get there. So I hate being like to anything and Jamie was always that person. If I can spend an extra minute looking at data or doing something like that, I'd rather do that than being at a function. So that was probably the frustrating side of Jaime, but as I said, it still happens today and I still have a giggle because now it's happening to shine. David couchy, Jamie's engineer from 2014 to 2020, said it was the relationships at triple 8 that made the team so successful. Oh, look without question, you know, you know, Jamie and of course, Craig, Craig lounge, you know, they were a massive part of that. And those guys, those guys working together, I think their relationship and the respect that both of those guys had for each other on and off the track and of course also the way that Roland, you know, operates the team, like that's a very big part of why Triple H has been so successful in its very almost short history. I mean, it's quite a long history now, but you know, they became successful quite quickly and that definitely flows from the top. And having those two drivers with their with their personalities, again, Jamie, it's so easy to get along with. Don't have to even mention it about Craig lounge, and he's kind of bubbly, happy personality. So, you know, it was just a really awesome environment to be in and everybody just was able to grow and perform at their absolute best. And that's why that was the sort of foundation of a watchable ladies today. God tanda has now joined the team as co driver with wind cups teammate with Shane Ben giz Bergen. He is now finding out firsthand why Triple H has been so successful. All I said to take one day, I'll get you in one of my cars. And I would turn it down. We did a we finally got it down to the endurance races. So,.

"Moves very easily. And we have teased him for years here about when he lived in sanctuary cove, that not wanting to go out of sanctuary cove. So now he lives in Brisbane, so he's ventured north at three kilometers. But I've never thought Jamie would end up overseas. I just didn't think that that's what he ever really wanted to do. Roland Dane says that Jamie changed the way the team went racing, and as an engineering company, they were always looking to find the next edge over the competition. Dane said they were able to find those 1% differences for their drivers. In the drivers that the right lead up to events having the organization of the events themselves structured around what's best for the driver to give the best performance in the car what they have to do various times what they eat and then the environment of the car itself and for instance the Jamie Jamie couldn't operate. As well without say an efficient cool suit system as Craig could so, but when it was clear that we were going to get a better performance from Jamie if we came up with a better call suit design, we became the first people to develop the sort of school suit that you've seen in news over the last decade or so and supercars that dry ice total lost system. Which if you remember a decade or more ago, people just had in there with lumps of lumps of icing that sometimes worked sometimes didn't and et cetera. And so the whole category has cottoned on to the fact that you can actually improve the driver's environment a lot with great cool suit technology. So, yeah, those are areas where Jamie's had a major influence. So what are the traits of a greatest of all time? Mark dutton explains the ability to win starts with the competitiveness and the desire to win. He wants to win, he believes he can win. And he does it in a measured way. So it's very, very rare that Jamie gets a 50 50 passing move on. Yeah, he's very he's very, very accurate with what he does, whether it's setting up the car, whether it's the ergonomics of the car is very particular with as well. So I think that that helps massively. It means he's keeping that cool head. He's making good decisions in the car. He's putting the effort in. It's one of those things that he's one for the viewers at home to check out. Look at the drivers getting out of the car after the race. A really good one example of it is tanzan this year when Jamie and Shane came one to at the first weekend. And they drove away from the field. They almost lapped the whole field. And you could see how the drivers and even some other drivers come in Archie. Those boys are doing it easy. They can have so good. But if you look at up and down pit lane, when the drivers got out, which drivers were the most wrecked with a tired and it was Jamie and Shane and it's not because they're lacking fitness. Quite the opposite. They're super fit. And they every single lap was full focus and full attention and they weren't all quality laps. That's, yeah, that's risk reward is not needed. But they were at such a high level of concentration and performance. That's why they drove away from the field. And the other drivers who actually got out looking fresh were not putting in the effort, so efforting equals results out. And I'm not singling anyone out apart from our guys, but I think it's a really interesting thing to look when the drivers get out. And the ones who are fresh as a daisy. And going as fast, are they related? I think so. So, I mean, the fact that Jamie has always has always given a 100% in and out of the car. That's what makes him a champion. That's what champions do is you don't give up and it doesn't matter. Not giving up doesn't mean you're throwing haymakers to try and do a pass at the end of the race for first. That's not on. That's different. That's not giving up. Not giving up is putting in full concentration, maximum effort, the whole way through, even when you're hurting, even your tired and then improving next time. So you're less tired, less fatigued, so you can do an even better job. So for me, that's a thing that has said Jamie apart and Shane these days. You can see he does that amazingly well also. Roland Dane. When he had a driver like Craig who's to be honest, just ready to roll with whatever turns up on the day, if you tell him the cars left hand drive, he'll just say, no problem get in and drive that. Craig lounge. Any time that there's a small change whether even a button on the steering wheel, he'll have to sit there and analyze it for half a day to make sure he memorizes where it's at and what's going on. And for me, it's just been yeah, I just adapt to it. Like, I've always adapted to things throughout my career. So, yeah, Jamie and I definitely work as complete differences in that regard. And as I said, he reminds me a lot of the marks gave of what we will see most. So he made us as a business and as a team focused much more. On what was good for the driver and of course, because he produced results to back that up when we did the right thing in his eyes and change our focus then because he delivered the results and we all bought into it. If he hadn't, then we wouldn't have done. But yeah, my sort of my instincts as it were probably a little bit more along the lines of the old days of drivers were lightbulbs and plugged.

"Ticket. Graham win cap says perhaps, this is more folklore than fact. Sounds like a good story, doesn't it? Yeah, look, I'm not sure about that. But maybe I should ask him for the money. I gave him for a refund for the F 8. But I'm not too sure of it. But I know that Kevin Murphy was trying to renegotiate with Jamie at that stage to stay with tasman. And Jamie got the opportunity to go and talk to Roland and and Mike and the others that Triple H, he thought that would be a great team to go forward with and he went up there and had a great interview with him. You know, there were other people that had been interviewed for the job, but Ronald said before the interviewers over were you, which guy was going to drive out there? Coming up next, we look at the misunderstood champion. Sad May in a sense of the fans, look, I know that they're loyal, they're very proud and they're very aligned with personalities. He didn't go Kara to be famous, you encouraged him to draw rice cars. We hear from some of his closest peers and partners, Roland Dane, Craig lowndes, mock dutton, and David couchy. You know, he does all he's talking on the race circuit. Each week joined the inside motor sport team as they look at all the news from across Australia and around the world. And every year, obviously, Jack is to go on prey and I just remind myself of his part in starting the path to safer cars dissecting the sport with interviews and news and opinion.

One of the most disappointing aspects of wind cup's career is that instead of celebrating his success, some motor sport spectators became hostile towards him. Famously booing the champion after he had one major events. Roland Dane provided his perspective on that part of Jaime's career. Whenever I'm shooting the breeze with my peer group and my Friends, et cetera in Europe and they inevitably say, or what are the best and worst things about being in Australia compared with being in the UK, for instance? And clearly the weather and friendliness of most people and the sort of attitude to life in Australia which can be so positive. And then you got the negatives and I always say, well, number one is speed limits. Number two is bureaucracy and nanny state approach. And number three is tall poppy syndrome. And Jamie has suffered from a lot of ignorant people giving him a hard time over many years because of his success. And unfortunately, I see that reflected many times in Australian sport. The good thing is that normally the passage of time deals with that. And I think that Jamie will be respected as he deserves by almost everyone. In the fullness of time. But in the short term, the there are people who resent his success for whatever reason. it's amplified these days by social media. In a way, which I think a lot of us have come to realize that undermines the meaning of social media comes on social media and quite repulsive at times. So Jamie's been exposed to that in a way which some of his predecessors haven't been. But in the fullness of time, the respect will be there from I would suggest pretty much everyone who's ever followed the sport, let alone been involved in it. And deservingly so. Craig lounge remembers these situations clearly. Oh, yeah, absolutely. And sometimes not only Jamie, there was other drivers that got that treatment. And it saddened me in a sense of the fans, look, I know that they're loyal, they're very proud and they're very aligned with personalities. But at the same time, it's motor racing. We've got to celebrate whether it's afford or a Holden or whether it's a James Courtney or a Jamie wing cup. So for me, that was always a little bit of a sad moment because of people just emotions probably take over. And I felt for Janet because you know he put his heart and soul into what he had done. And winning races is something that we'd all strive for. I think that because of his personality, again, the marks gave, I'd even say the Marcus Ambrose. They sort of weren't really fan favorites because of just the way they or their attitude and the way they approach the race weekends. And it's a shine because they fans of us not seeing the results of what this person, Jamie had created or achieved that they just sort of seeing him as a personality and really, as you said, it didn't really matter to the fans where you finish. It was just the personalities that they'd wanted to connect with. Laos said being the most popular driver of the modern era made the relationship with the fans more difficult. It was hard for Jamie, because as far as their popularity, but at the same token, it's just trying to think of analogy. Probably center and Prost in the same time a Formula One, like when you've got in a sense to heavy weights, but then we've got two different personalities. It always is a different. So for Jamie, hold on, he's results will always stand up and be shown in history of how many championships he's won and races and everything else. I said, yeah, he wasn't one of the popular drivers and public eye. But that's just, you know, again, that's just unfortunately the way that he's personality is. David couch he noted that the negative opinions and conduct of fans never impacted on Jamie's behaviors around the team. In all the time I've known Jamie I've never seen any big flashy sort of statements or articles or anything like that. And, you know, he absolutely lets does all he's talking on the race circuit. And I think that's a really, that's something that I'm, you know, really sort of love about his personality. You know, I think talks talks cheap in any sport and certainly in motor sport and what actually matters is what you do on track and the results you get. And that's probably what, you know, I mean, there's no question. He's the greatest and he's managed to consistently perform an unbelievably high level for a very long period of time. And that's what is very, very hard to do, you know? It's hard enough to win one championship. You know, very few can back up and win two. You know, to win to win 7 is almost unbelievable, but the other thing I think that you can't sort of brush over is the fact that if he hasn't won the championship, he's pretty much been second. You know, every other year. So, you know, he just really hasn't had hasn't had a bad year. And I think that's why he's, you know, without question, one of the greatest of all time. Tim miles employed Jamie at tasman motor sport, then later became a co owner at triple 8. He said the public didn't understand Jamie's focus. He's a very genuine character. He didn't go to be famous you encouraged him to draw a race cars and he's still the same and he realizes that obligation that you have as a sports startup to be accessible to the public, et cetera. But he goes writing the race as and so he sort of doesn't pretend to be anything else. And I think that's part of where the tractors come from that you mentioned. That is a very, very, very genuine person. Scott, Colin, found wind cups approach to be laser focused, which was developed in him from a young age. Had this attitude of how to win and he wanted to win and he wanted to be a perfect of what he did. And he only ever looked at so you mentioned go cat, so or I'm going to be the best go Carter, but he needed a lot of formula Ford, and then that was the logical step, and then it was, oh, I'm going to be the best formula Ford driver. And then he always focused on what was in front of him rather than the big picture, which I found fascinating. And then supercars was the logical next step. And then he went about trying to be the best at that. But you started right, I think he attitude and these principles were set very, very early, and it was clear. He wanted to be he was a racer by blood and he wanted to be a racer and that's all one to do. And he wanted to be the best he could. Craig said nothing went unnoticed. And his approach to racing also heightened the differences between the two men. Yes, as opposed to just one of those things for me, I'll visualize enjoyed the support of as I said, I've always just tried to be me in the sense of understanding also that the sport has to have fans and that for me was always a very important to share their stories and share Tom with them. No different to what Peter Brock did. And I think that Peter and I were very similar in our mannerisms. And the way that we operate as personalities, I take a lot of energy out of spans and talking to fans and I think that again, if you look back to my career, anytime it was going bad in the sense of inside the race car or our performance was bad. Otherwise go out and talk to fans because it made me happy. So for Jamie, that would be the opposite. If things were going bad, he would basically retreat and look at data and not want to do anything sponsor related anything just so he could focus on how to turn things around. So yeah, we were very as I said chalk and cheese. But at the end of the day, it worked for both of us. I think I've seen a bit of a change in Jamie, especially in his last year now that since he's made his announcement to retire or step down as a full-time driver, he's now become relaxed, he's enjoying the racing. It's almost gone full circle for him. So there's a little bit of a difference. But at the same token, as I said, I've always just enjoyed it. He has not got to say Jamie's been a thorn in my side because probably 7 8 years because I think I finished second to him about them many times. So he's a champion in his own right. We've gone head to head. You know, for championships. And so the beauty about it though is it just has worked for the team. So that's the ultimate thing has been a huge team. It was often speculation about wind cup's future, with rumors in the press that he was looking to head overseas. But Roland never once gave them any credence. I was 95% sure that Jamie wasn't going to go anywhere outside Australia. He's, yeah, he's not somebody who upticks and.

"As a team, we are a lot to because he was very helpful when everyone was really sling with this atmosphere and the team at the beginning of O 7. And it wasn't until I think it was winter in May of that year that we really rediscovered our mojo. Well, the I set the weekend up in race one when it had a huge downpour rain. We made the team Vodafone made the right strategy to come in early and put wet tires on. And then everyone seemed to fall off in front of me and I was able to win that race. So that really set up my weekend. We had two good solid performances in race two and three with two second places and very, very happy to leave winton with maximum points and a great win for the team. Sort of a huge sigh of relief to everyone to understand ourselves again. And reassemble ourselves as a team. And then from then on Jamie was able to show that actually he was a feature superstar. David Kochi had joined Triple H by 2008, and he found himself working on the data for both triple 8 cars. Triple H was already very competitive. By the time I got there, you know, they'd already come very close to winning the championship in 2007. And, you know, in 2008, we sort of put, you know, collectively put it all together and managed to Jamie got his first championship win that year. What an amazing year. It's been a long, hard for year, but we're so proud of our achievements. To win the championship to win the team championship, the pole award most around consecutive 16 race wins. 2008 is by far a year that I'll never ever forget. How hard do you think it is to back it up next year? I couldn't have gotten any harder, so I expect no different next year. Kevin fitzsimmons reflected on what he considered one of win cup's most spectacular drives. We were in Hamilton in New Zealand. Straight right there. And our membrane like pinned him early because he was sort of caught up in some traffic and everything else. So that is dropping out of the pit lane master and gave him a number on the radio that he had to drive to and say we need 20 laps at this time. And we ended up doing about 28 laps. I think it was within a hundredth of a second of the time he gave him it was just blew my mind, you know he just sort of stood there as he was leaving pit lane to heave the time that he gave him for 2013 ambitious but the fact that he could Avery apex and nail absolutely everything left the left half to let was incredible. And then he repeated it the first year tanzan was just a very dominant way king, but just the way he was able to consistently hit the things when all the things that go on when cars get hot and tasked in hot and brakes and gearboxes and you get tired and all those things but did a string lap after lap after. Was mind-blowing, you know, it was truly exceptional. It was big harm. We knew we had a quick car. It was definitely becoming and really attack and conserve the tires and attack. When we came into the pits, so we changed our strategy. We paid it early, and took advantage of new tires, got to get and that was the end of the race. Jaime wrapped up the 2009 season to go back to back in the championship. But it was not without its adversities, with the young man struggling with mental challenges throughout the year. You know, sometimes that you just keep getting miles down, you know, now down now down and everyone wants one to piece and sometimes you just got to focus on driving the car. And the more winning you do, the harder that becomes this to focus on driving the car and that's what I want to do. So that arrogant comes from me just trying to concentrate on doing my job, the best of my ability. And any one in my position wouldn't do any different, you know? If I wasn't to do that, well then I'd you guys wouldn't even want to talk to me because I'll be running mid pack or maybe, you know, towards the back, so that's just the way guys. I hate being called that, but you just gotta do what you're gonna do. You've won two championships and you're saying, I've got to look for the focus again is someone like another Vodafone partner as it were at the Brisbane lines. Something like a Markov also won three AFL premierships. Is that the sort of paper you need to solve to talk about these mental toughness? Yeah, absolutely. Anyone that's performed at their best for three or four years is has a special ability with that doubt, so anyone in any sport I'd love to be able to crack their brain to work out what makes them take for sure. Shady's here this weekend actually. Yeah, he knows all about it for sure. You know, just performing right up top notch stuff for long periods of time. It's a lot different than just going out there and building everything up and down and doing a good job back in that year after year is a big deal. I've got a lot of respect for people that can do that. In 2010, the team made the switch to Holden, where they worked tirelessly over the Christmas period as Roland explains. Yeah, one from a team point of view where Jamie was the lead from a driving perspective, was when we won our first race with Holden in Abu Dhabi in 2010. There's actually a one two just Craig was second so and Jamie then won all four of the overseas races on the trot. The two in Abu Dhabi and then the two in Bahrain, the following weekend. And that was extremely proud. Team moment of which Jamie played a massive role in. Yeah, awesome day. Of course with debuting, brand new holdings here. On a brand new circuit to be politician and to be one two on the right is just an amazing start and a bit of a dream come true for the team. Is this a sign of things to come? I mean, it can't get much better than this. Oh, I certainly hope so. We can't believe the start we've had. But if I wasn't pumped up before I pumped out, it's going to be big 2010 and we're going to fight right to the end. One of the most iconic moments of wind cup's career occurred in 2010, and it wasn't a win. With the lapse at the iconic bathurst race track counting down and his car closing in on his teammate at the front of the field, Jamie made a significant radio call to the team. He said to let Craig lounge know he wouldn't race into the end, but would form up for a rare one two finish on the mountain. Yeah, you do talk about these things. So you talk about if they were to happen, but you don't, you don't spend a lot of time talking on if everything goes right. But you do have to talk about these things in your strategy means. So we had touched on it. But the funniest part of that was Jamie says that but Craig's trade response the ever jovial okay from Craig came through with.

"Basically created when Jamie came along and we first tested him in December O 5, I think it was. We did a first test at queenston raceway. We could see straight away that Jamie actually had more potential more speed than we than we thought. Mark dutton. Particularly at the time, he's feedback. And I say at the time, which I'll get to. So he's feedback was amazing. And the tires we have the amount of tires everyone had. It was the same for everyone, was nowhere near as generous as these days. So you're constantly doing practice sessions on rubbish tires. So you had to be able to extrapolate what the car would be like when you got on good tires. And you'd be you'd be running your practice sessions and trying to make improvements with the car. And Jamie was amazing with these feedback and the amount of information he could absorb doing lapse. It was really spectacular. He would go out and say we'd do a three lap run and he'd come back in the practice session and dial in or whatever and he'd he'd talk you through every single corner in multiple stages of every single lap. But then he'd also be able to say what other cars around him were doing better or worse than him. So it was just phenomenal, the amount of information he was able to absorb and process. Not only of what he was doing in his cow was doing, but what others were doing while going full flat out. So that's that for me was one of the big things that set him apart was just that that information capacity that he had. Kevin fitzsimmons is the operations manager for Dunlop tires. He has observed drivers through 40 years of involvement in the sport. Spend a lot of time in the 90s lead IDs and sort of in the 90s and everything development with paid a baroque, and he was another one that could just get into their autopilot mode. I'm on the door and just just punch numbers there every single left on everything, but to be able to relay the feedback cleansing was also good at the time in recent years was absolutely exceptional to body the feedback that we needed to hear. And the pain personal, you know, I had all these and put the category head on and do it for the better of the category and everything will solve that and I'll be eternally grateful for everything he ever did for us through. First race mating for win cut and his new team was the clips all 500. Lounge went on Saturday, but it was wind cup who took the win on Sunday and his first clips or title. I remember coming out and winning the first round and, you know, basically, again, putting his name back in lights because he'd obviously had an opportunity with Gary Rogers. And that didn't go well for him. Roland Dane. Craig got tied up in a bit of a messy situation, I think from memory. Loss of front special or something. Jamie benefited from having the focus on him. So on the Sunday in particular where he could then show his speed and win the race. And that certainly set him up. Jamie spoke to inside supercars on Sunday Night after that race. Fantastic to get my first win with my first race with Triple H, fantastic achievement for the team with Craig winning yesterday and the self winning today of being involved with the development and the hard work they're putting over the last three months. And it's just great to go at hard work paid off. After the high of clips all, he had some challenges through the year. You know, it took him another year or so to get rid of some of the mistakes that he was making to understand how to race in the category better. And of course, he had a bit of a target on his back for some of the more senior drivers who saw this young upstart coming along and getting a plum seat. I think it wasn't until sometime in O 7 where he really showed to everyone else the potential we saw. Craig lounge. So for me, it was a fascinating time, but watching he was always very quick. He might some mistakes earlier in the early stages, driving mistakes, which is just a learning curve. But at the end of the day, the fundamentally had the speed, he adapted to basically my style of driving because that was the car was so more set up to the way that I'd liked it and wanted it. He adapted to that and got it sorted. Mark dutton. He got the first win, as you said, when he started, but then it was a bit dry for the rest of 2006 apart from bathurst, which is obviously a big one. To win bathers that year was something very special for me because of the passing of Peter Brock, but it really cemented Jamie's position within the team and I'm sure Rollins decision to hire him. Congratulations, Mike. Very much. Not a fantastic feeling. That was excellent all weekend. Craig is Craig lens. He's just the one of the best out there and 5 wins 5 round wins this year to fantastic effort. Congratulations to you've learned a lot from him. It's kind of as cool as ever. I'm just prepared for the Ford fence. Congratulations. The rise of Jamie win cup was not without setbacks, and the team suffered a major one at the start of 2007 as Roland dayne explains. It would have been earlier in O 7, but tragically, the number one on his car number one mechanic committed suicide on New Year's Day in O 7. And that had a huge negative impact on the team for a while there. In fact, we had some very good help in that period from Gary Coleman. And..

"He has this attitude of how to win and he wanted to win and he wanted to be perfect at what he did when Jamie came along and we first tested him. We could see straight away that Jamie actually had potential more speed than we than we thought. And Jamie was amazing with his feedback and the amount of information he could absorb doing laps. It was really spectacular. Without a drive for the 2006 season, Jamie wing cut flew from Victoria to Queensland to meet with triple-A management, Roland Dane talks about that fateful day. He did fly up short notice to talk to me after bathurst and 2005. And he had a sit down with me had met a couple of the key engineers as well. And yeah, basically made it clear that he'd do whatever's necessary to get to get his bum in the in the seat of one of our cars. He. His motivation was clearly there from the start. His hunger was there. And he was the only one of the three people that I was seriously considering at the time. Who didn't immediately ask about money? Triple H Lee driver was Craig lounge, the most popular driver in Sue because history, and the man that Rowland was building the team around. So when he first came to the team, he was enthusiastic. He was probably a little bit Shaw as well. But his enthusiastic and really keen to learn and develop as a driver, like we all were when we were first getting an opportunity with the major team like that. Rollins said that the team was looking for a number two driver for one important reason. You were looking for a number two driver could double up as you're allowed to in those days. For the enduro races and give us the best possible chance of winning winning the battles 1000. And we already had that stage a number one driver in Craig. So yes, we wanted somebody who had the potential to grow into a major force, but that particular point in time at the end of O 5 is about putting together the strongest possible team for bassist 1000. Craig lounge. I wasn't involved in the actual decision making of sawing Jamie, but I know at the time that role and did make that point that we're looking for a teammate that was in the same sort of heart stature as me and really that the focus for role and from my understanding was more so better. And that was obviously a race that has enticed role under come to Australia in the first place. So that was his goal was to put a super team together to get the result of bathurst and hopefully a championship. Roland explains how Jamie appeared on his radar. To be honest, there was nothing nothing at GRM that drew drew me to him. Partly because the most of the time he was at GRM was just before I was in Australia full time. But that was the way very aware of his formula Ford track record. And also at tasman, we'd watched him provide exemplary support to their number one driver at the time Jason Richards in the enduro races at sandown and bathurst. And at the time, my principal goal, then was to try and win our first bathurst. And we needed somebody who'd be great support for Craig lands. So, you know, those those were the key factors. Couch he saw that Jamie had some qualities that made it obvious to the team that he would succeed. Jaime's very easy to get along with. I mean, you know, we got along very well from the beginning. I actually knew him from when again he drove for tasman. Motor sport, which is sort of what lands Val smash sort of morph them to invent I already knew him before call it. I got to Triple H you know and look so yeah, we've always had a very close relationship as sort of friends more than more than sort of even work colleagues as such. So that made the sort of jump really easy, I guess from that point of view Mark dutton was already well established at triple 8. However, the new young gun caused a few changes in the engineering structure. It always race engineer the year before with Steve ellery. But because we had a young up and coming talent in Jaime, ludo ludo wanted to put the engineering race engineering hat back on. So I was demoted from race engineer to Dave engineer on that car. It was actually probably one of my nicest end of year performance reviews I've ever had. Because I was getting demoted there actually being nice to me and I even got a pay rise, which was, yeah, two tenths of not a lot. It's still not a lot, but pay rise is still a payroll. So yeah, finally enough it was my demotion, which was my most pleasant end of the year of you today. Craig lounge said Jamie had an approach to how he went racing, which he had seen in another successful champion. I look at Jamie and I see a lot of Mark scaping him in the sense of his mannerisms, the way that he operated in a sense of as I said, the data, all that side of it, he worked extremely hard behind the scenes with just all the small things, even to a point where still today at the beginning of every season, you know, our first test day, Jamie has to run in 5 sets of shoes. And he will never go to a racetrack with a brand new set of shoes. You'll always have to have run them, or use them. He's against he's done it, but he's against different color schemes of one off color schemes at rice weekend halfway through it because again for him. It's a mental thing in the sense of or psychological thing to change. David couchy do you work very hard, you know, behind the scenes on himself. You know, I mean, you know, not just his fitness, but he's preparation and approach to the race weekend. You know, and each driver, each driver does approach that that differently. But yeah, I just remember always remember a real real attention to detail and just not leaving any stone unturned, basically. Mark dutton was never afraid to ask a question even if it might come across as silly or obvious. So which is great, yeah. It's things that you encourage your kids to do you encourage everyone to do. But he would do it and he continues to ask those questions. So that, for me, that willingness and want to learn and improve that that was the standout from day dot. Craig lounge. He really literally understood took on board the settings of the car, the way that the team operated the philosophy of what the team had. Had.

"Will be any different as a team principal? I don't think he'll change much at the racetrack, like he's there led to do a job. He said, I'll probably get a bit more time to talk to you great, you know? He said, usually he got out of the car that he was trying to debrief and then they all over things. And, you know, although we go to a lot of race meetings, it's amazing. The small amount of time we get to spend with them. I think, you know, we might have had dinner once or twice as last ten or 15 years because it doesn't do that. You know, they're in debris with the engineers. So hopefully that he's got a little bit more time to have a chat and spend a bit of time together at, you know, I don't think Jamie's dedication will change very much. It'll just change into a different format than writing the cow with the helmet onto use it as you said, put a quick cap on and watch what else everybody else is doing. Tim miles highlights one area of he has been observing Jamie developing off the track. Yeah, and I think he does it much quicker and ice cold than he does in the business, but I think that's because he's been doing the first one for longer than the second. I'm probably the reverse. He does make his decision and then stick to it. So he doesn't regret having made a decision if it's the wrong one, because he will have put the work in the back end decision. I think what you do see with Jamie is brave enough to make decisions. But in a business sitting at the moment, he's keen to learn. He's learning from a guru and Ronald dying and so I think it's sometimes rather the amount of questions that Jamie will ask. But Jamie's asking him because he's learning. He's not asking them to challenge Roland on this decision or that. He's worried that there's and so I think he'll get to the position next year where he'll be able to make those decisions a lot quicker than he does today. And that'll be because he's been a good period this year learning. And I think, for example, second car wash that he's just opened up in Queensland there and he did that in a far shorter time period than the first car wash. And that's because he had gone through a bunch of processes before. So he knew what to expect, how to expect it and he made those decisions a lot quicker. And I'm seeing that, I'm seeing that in team man at. He's able to make decisions infinitely quicker once he's already had the experience. So I think he's more cautious now than we'll see and 24 months. Mark dutton thinks that Jamie's knowledge and experience will be good for the team when he is Tapping data on the shoulder during a race to suggest a strategy. Yeah, and he'll be excellent at that. Like, he's very good at he'll be seeing it through a driver's eyes. You know, what's happening on the track in different things, which is which is very valuable. So, no, he's his input. If he purely replaced or did that, that would be a great role in the great input and a great asset to the team. Let alone if he's doing more and more than that. So I think he'll do a good job. Great win cup doesn't think 2022 will see a big change at the team. But looks forward to celebrating Jamie's driving career after the bear first 1000. Another famous saying we have the easiest thing to change in a race car as the driver. Just hop on and put another one. So I don't think anything will change. I think in the privacy of the team, they will have some sort of a celebration or whatever, but, you know, nothing's going to change very much. You know, James Hamilton only came out of the cabinet couple of times a year instead of a weekend. So, you know, Jamie will still be the team. He still going to be at the racetrack all the time. So just because there's another driver and they say, I don't think the team will change is because Jamie's not there. He will be there and they will continue to go forward. You know, I'm sure there'll be a few drinks and a bit of a celebration at the end of the day, but I think that will be well away from the restaurant. Craig lounge is one of the big things that Jamie needs to side is if he is going to co drive for the team in 2022. Well, at the moment, I think we're everyone's all sitting and sitting and biking and waiting for Jamie to make a decision whether he's going to suppose one sense go cold Turkey and just get a step away from driving side of it and manage the team and manage the workshop or whether he does come back and personally, I can't say Jamie going cold Turkey, I think there's no doubt again being true with it. He'll have that bug, especially when cars were all out for the first time next year at and I remember Mark Skype saying the same to me, you'll know if you've made the right choice when you first stand on the pit line and you watching the cars all falling out of pit lane when you're not in one. And the emotions of that internally, you feel strong enough that you should be a one or whether you're comfortable with the decision you have made. But I think for me, I was comfortable in the decision. But at the same token, as the year rolls on, you do a couple of test days and you get back in the driver's seat. You sort of become more eager to continue as a race driver. So I think Jamie will probably contest next year as a co driver. That's my thinking and my take of it. Where that puts me, I'm not sure but we'll have to wait and see. Mark dutton his roles for 2022 have not been established. We haven't had the we haven't had time and it's for next year. But a good sit down to really plan out, yeah, for the roles and responsibilities of everyone. What specific role Jamie will be doing in the garage. It'll be interesting. I think he'll do a good job no matter which way we skim the cat of who's doing exactly what yeah, I've said to him half joking. Are you sure you don't just want to do my job? Am I staying at home now? Are you are you going to are you going to be between the two race engineers? Yeah, you're doing that. So and that controller or whatever. So I've posed the questions to Jamie. I imagine he'd want to get in and do all those things. But yeah, I don't know. We'll have to see. Yeah, see if I still have the job. Catchy jokes, and he's moving to grove racing because of the change. Yeah, I wanted to get away before he became my boss. Yeah, I didn't want him to have to shout at me. Basically. The immediate challenge is this weekend. Craig lands who will share the cow with bathers, hopes to send him out on a high, similar.

"Setting Jamie on his path to greatness. He said that success is nephew has achieved has been celebrated by more than his family. Everybody thinks that not just family, but close family friends, you know? He started incredible think to a tree what he has and he's still like, it's still lucky he's running second in the championship man and he's retirement year. He still puts the thing on Paul. You know, he's still throwing in some incredible laps in the east still doing very, very well lucky he's stepping out at the top of his game and I'm sure if Jamie throws head out there, there'd be several things would like him to come and drive their cars and pick up a piece. Scott Gallo has justices of Jamie in his autobiography, rather a lifetime. And he spoke about how Jamie approached his next chapter. Yeah, absolutely. He was not obsessed, but he sort of a challenge. He didn't want to be known as one trick pony. Which is pretty good trick when you're the best driver in history, but he was very about the future. He wanted to jump into things and he always talked about his dad. You know, the one way to get his dad to do something is to tell die that he couldn't, you know, build that fence over there. So then he'd go and do it. And I think Jamie should be at the same. At Triple H, Jamie has shared the garage with the most popular driver of all time Craig lands. And now with one of the most popular kiwi drivers, Shane van gisbergen, Graham, win cap said that Jamie understood the importance of having a strong teammate. When you've got a tough teammate, it raises the level. Like you're always out to boot your teammate. He's the first guy you've got to beat. And, you know, they are great teammates, you know, the team is everything to them. And if Jamie can't win Shane wants to win and vice versa, you know, they are there to have the trip like cars, one, two, as much as possible. And it does. You know, they push each other hard and there's no secrets, you know, I've seen that there's no secrets with anybody I'm doing this try this, you know and that's how it really should be. Jamie's teammate. Gregg lands admires many aspects of the relationship. It was always been the one thing that the stock news grow. But there is some things that Jamie does that used to frustrate me. And I have a laugh about it because it still happens today. We shine, which is basically that, you know, if you've got to be in an appearance at a ten o'clock at 9 59 and 59 seconds, Jamie will then decide to go and go to the function, but it takes, you know, it doesn't have to take it into account that it's going to take 5 minutes to get there. So I hate being like to anything and Jamie was always that person or if I can spend an extra extra minute looking at data or doing something like that, I'd rather do that than be in a function. So that was probably the frustrating side of Jaime, but as I said, it still happens today and I still have a giggle because now it's happening to shame. David couchy, Jamie's engineer from 2014 to 2020 said it was the relationships that Triple H that made the team so successful. Oh, look without question, you know, you know, Jamie and of course, Craig, Craig lounge, you know, they were a massive part of that. And those guys, those guys working together, I think their relationship and the respect that both of those guys had for each other on and off the track. And of course, also the way that the Roland, you know, operates the team, like that's a very big part of why Triple H has been so successful in its almost short history. I mean, it's quite a long history now, but you know, they became successful quite quickly and that definitely flows from the top. And having those two drivers with their with their personalities, again, Jamie, so easy to get along with. Don't have to even mention it about Craig lounge, and he's kind of bubbly, happy personality. So, you know, it was just a really awesome environment to be in and everybody just was able to grow and perform at their absolute best. And that's why that was the sort of foundation of what triple-A's today. Ten is now joined the team as a co driver. Wind caps teammate Shane men gisborne. He's now founding at first hand wide triple-A has been so successful and dying all I said to me one day I'll get you in one of my cars. And turned out. We did a we finally got it down to the endurance races. So, yeah, look, it's been a lot of fancier and a lot of fun amongst the full drivers of triple-A. Given the battles that we've had over the journey, roast against Jamie, particularly, you know, the year that I'd run the championship 2007 when it came down to two points between Jamie and myself. The following a couple of years and we were inside when January 1% started battling for opportunity to look through this arm. And then obviously shining came on the scene 2007, you know, right against him that whole time. Scott gullon. He fell in love with the engineering side of motor sport. So he's learned a lot from that. And I think in business, he took his time to figure out what he wanted to do, but the car wash business. That's going to begin engineering factor. He wants it to be the most modern and different and best in Australia. So again, he's applauded that. And I think motor sport, you know, that's all he's 9, it's in his blood and he genuinely cares about the sport. I mean, he's not just about how he wants to win because that seemed Brady. But he has a genuine care for the state of the sport. So being on the commission and now being an ironer and a manager, I'm not surprised he went down that track and either is anyone around and really and I think he'll divide a lot of time between that and his business.

Yeah, the planets aligned in terms of what I was thinking of when I needed to be able to step back. The timing was appropriate. We hear from crane wink up, Roland Dane, Craig lounge, got Fanta and Scott Gollum. Grab when it comes to proud uncle and partly responsible for.

"Jamie couldn't operate as well without say an efficient cool suit system as Craig could so, but when it was clear that we were going to get a better performance from Jamie if we came up with a better call suit design, we became the first people to develop the source of school suit that you've seen in new center the last decade or so in supercars that dry ice total lost system. Which, if you remember a decade or more ago, people just had in there with lumps of lumps of icing that sometimes worked sometimes didn't and et cetera. And so the whole category has cottoned on to the fact that you can actually improve the driver's environment a lot with great cool suit technology. So, yeah, those are areas where Jamie's had a major influence. So what are the traits of a goat? Marked up and explains. The ability to win starts with the competitiveness and the desire to win. He wants to win, he believes he can win. And he does it in a measured way. So it's very, very rare that Jamie gets a 50 50 passing move on. Yeah, he's very he's very, very accurate with what he does, whether it's setting up the car, whether it's the ergonomics of the car is very particular with as well. So I think that that helps massively. It means he's keeping that cool head. He's making good decisions in the car. He's putting the effort in. It's one of those things that he's one for the viewers at home to check out. Look at the drivers getting out of the car after the race. A really good one example of it is tanzan this year when Jamie and Shane came one to at the first weekend. And they drove away from the field. They almost lapped the whole field. And you could see how the drivers and even some other drivers had come at Archie's those boys are doing it easy. Their cars are so good. But if you look at up and down pip line, when the drivers got out, which drivers were the most wrecked with a tired and it was Jamie and Shane and it's not because they're lacking fitness. Quite the opposite. They're super fit. And they every single lap was full focus and full attention and they weren't all elapsed. That's yeah, that's risk for reward is not needed, but they were at such a high level of concentration and performance. That's why they drove away from the field. And the other drivers who actually got out looking fresh were not putting in the effort, so efforting equals results out. And I'm not singling anyone out apart from our guys, but I think it's a really interesting thing to look when the drivers get out. And the ones who are fresh as a daisy and going as fast yeah, are they related? I think so. So, I mean, the fact that Jamie has always has always given a 100% in and out of the car. That's what makes him a champion. That's what champions do is you don't give up and it doesn't matter. Not giving up doesn't mean you're throwing haymakers to try and do a pass at the end of the race for first. That's not on. That's different. That's not giving up. Not giving up is putting in full concentration, maximum effort, the whole way through. Even when you're hurting, even your tired and then improving next time. So you're less tired, less fatigued, so you can do an even better job. So for me, that's a thing that has said Jamie apart and Shane these days. You can see he does that amazingly well also. He's role and Dane. When he had a driver like Craig who's to be honest, just ready to roll with whatever turns up on the day, if you tell him the cars, left hand drive, he'll just say no problem get in and drive that. Craig said nothing went unnoticed by Jamie. Any time that there's a small change whether even a button on the steering wheel, he'll have to sit there and analyze it for half a day to make sure he memorizes where that and what's going on. And for me, it's just been yeah, I'll just adapt to it like I've always adapted to things throughout my career. So yeah, Jamie and I definitely work as complete differences in that regard. And as I said, he reminds me a lot of the marks gave of what we will see most. Roland Danes says that Jamie changed the way the team went racing and there's an engineering company, they were always looking to find the next edge over the competition. So he made us as a business and as a team focused much more. On what was good for the driver and of course, because he produced results to back that up when we did the right thing in his eyes and change our focus then because he delivered the results and we all bought into it. If he hadn't, then we wouldn't have done. Jamie was able to change the way Roland looked at racing drivers and how he approached the driving process. My instincts, as it were, probably a little bit more along the lines, the old days of drivers were lightbulbs and you plug them in and take them out. And that's developed a lot over the last 15 15 plus years to provide the drivers with the best possible environment in which to apply their trade. So Jamie's been a massive massive part of that. Craig lounge. He'd OCD. There's no doubt about how he is routine driven, but he's also OCD. So as I said, he has to wear any boots. He's rose boots at the start of the year because that's just for him at works. He's the only driver in pit Lana puts basically those boots. I suppose you can call them on every time he gets in or out of the car because again, if they hear him, that's just a routine and something that works for him. So yeah, for me, I think that OCD works as very well for him because he's a very methodical he's very driven by doctor and knowing what he's got is the best he can be. Jamie, wind comes focus and dedication to his craft has enabled him to elevate himself above the ordinary and into the elite or Australian motor sport. And he will be a person and others will say I saw the time that Jamie did. This is a real legacy of Jamie winker. The inside supercars is produced by thunder media.

"Supercars. On this show, we consider our Jamie wind cups focus on his performance was misinterpreted by many outside the inner segment of supercars. That May in the sense of the fans look, I know that they're loyal. They're very proud and they're very aligned with personality. He didn't get tired to be famous, you encouraged him to drive race cars. We hear from some of his closest peers and partners rolling down Craig lowndes, Mark dutton, and David couchy. You know, he does all these talking on the race circuit. One of the disappointing aspects of win cap's career is instead of celebrating success. Some motor sports spectators became possible towards it. Famously booing the champion R three one major events. Roland Dane provided his perspective on that part of Jamie's career and the Australian way. Whenever I'm shooting the breeze with my fear group and my Friends, et cetera in Europe and they inevitably say, or what are the best bets and worst things about being in Australia compared with being in the UK for instance. And there's clearly the weather and friendliness of most people and that sort of attitude to life in Australia which can be so positive. And then you got the negatives and I always say, well, number one is speed limits. Number two is bureaucracy and nanny state approach. And number three is tall poppy syndrome. And Jamie has suffered from a lot of ignorant people giving him a hard time over many years because of his success. And unfortunately, I see that reflected many times in Australian sport the good thing is that normally the passage of time. Deals with that. And I think that Jamie will be respected as he deserves by almost everyone. In the fullness of time. But in the short term, the there are people who resent his success for whatever reason. Which is a shame, but it's amplified these days by social media. In a way, which I think a lot of us have come to realize that undermines the meaning of social media comes unsocial media and quite repulsive at times. So Jamie's been exposed to that in a way, which some of his predecessors haven't been. But in the fullness of time, the respect will be there from I would suggest pretty much everyone who's ever followed the sport, let alone been involved in it. And deservingly so. Craig lounge remember these situations clearly. Oh, yeah, absolutely. And sometimes not only Jamie, there was other drivers that got that treatment. And it saddened me in a sense of the fans, look, I know that they're loyal, they're very proud and they're very aligned with personalities. But at the same time, it's motor racing. We've got to celebrate whether it's afford or a Holden or whether it's a James Courtney or a Jamie win cup. So for me, that was always a little bit of a sad moment because of people just emotions probably take over. And I felt for Jackie because he put his heart and soul into what he had done and winning races is something that we'd all strive for. I think that because of his personality, again, the marks gave, I'd even say the Marcus Ambrose. They sort of weren't really fan favorites because of just the way they all their attitude and the way they approach the race weekends. And it's a shine because they fans of us not seeing the results of what this person, Jamie had created or achieved that they just sort of sing in here's a personality and really, as you said, it didn't really matter the fans, where you finish, it was just the personalities that they wanted to connect with. Fans said being the most popular driver of the modern era made the relationship with the fans more difficult. It was hard for Jamie because I suppose about popularity, but at the same token, it's just trying to think of analogy. Probably center and Prost in the same time a Formula One, like when you've got in a sense to heavy weights, but then we've got two different personalities. It always is a different. So for Jimmy, although he's results with always stand up and be shown in history of how many championships he's won and races and everything else that, yeah, he wasn't one of the popular drivers and public eye. But that's just, you know, again, that's just unfortunately the way that he's personality is. David couch, he noted that the negative opinions and conduct offense never impacted on Jamie's behavior around the team in all the time I've known Jamie. I've never seen any big, you know flashy sort of statements or articles or anything like that. And, you know, he absolutely lets does all he's talking on the race circuit. And I think that's a really, that's something that I'm, you know, really sort of love about his personality. I think talks talks cheap. In any sport and certainly in motor sport and what actually matters is what you do on track and the results get. And that's probably what, you know, I mean, there's no question. He's the greatest. And he's managed to consistently perform an unbelievably high level for a very long period of time. And that's what is very, very hard to do, you know? It's hard enough to win one championship. You know, very few can back up and win two. You know, to win to win 7 is almost unbelievable, but the other thing I think that you can't brush over is the fact that if he hasn't won the championship, he's pretty much been second. You know, every other year. So, you know, he just really hasn't had hasn't had a bad year. And I think that's why he's, you know, without question, one of the greatest of all time. Two miles employed Jamie at tasman motor sport, then later became co owner Triple H, he said the public didn't understand Jamie's focus. He's a very genuine character. He didn't go car racing to be famous he went carras in the broad race cars and he's still the same and he realizes that obligation that you have as a sports startup to be accessible to the public, et cetera. But he goes writing the rice casm. And so he sort of doesn't retain to be anything else. And I think that's part of where the tractors come from, but you mentioned. That is a very, very, very genuine person. Scott Geller provided his observations on how he.
