Why McLaughlin is wrong to label 2020 his best title

OPINION: Scott McLaughlin was quick to describe his third Supercars title as his best yet. But even though it didn't match the dramatic backstory of his 2018 triumph, there's a good reason for him wanting to control the narrative this time around

Scott McLaughlin wasted little time in declaring his third Supercars title as his best after his advantage over Jamie Whincup stretched to an unassailable 305 points at The Bend, with only the Bathurst finale to go.

He had even started campaigning before wrapping up the title. Last Saturday night, when he still needed to grow his advantage over Whincup by another 37 points, he set out his stall.
