At Eastern Creek Raceway yesterday, Jame Whincup won his 106th race in the Supercars championship, making him the most successful driver in the category's history, but most drivers still see him as a dick.
"Good driver, but still a dick," said long-time rival Mark Winterbottom.
"I hear they get a new custom-made helmet made each year to deal with his ego," said another driver. "I wonder what they'll do now."
Even die-hard Ford fans have major antipathy to a driver who brought the Blue Oval a fair few Bathurst and Championship victories.
"Skaifey even seems a pleasant guy compared to Whincup and [his team] Triple Eight," said Davo, a Ford fanatic. "Team boss Roland Dane is about a pleasant as a mouthful of glass washed down with acid.
"He and his team are always whingeing. They're always sooking to the stewards about something."
