Supercars and the #AusGP announced this week that from 2018 onwards Supercars would race for championship points at the Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix. See how the drivers, teams and fans reacted to the news on Social Media.
No more lazing around
Points are now on the line for all teams. No more chilling about in the Pit Lane this year with Max Verstappen, Chaz.
Ask and you shall receive
Supercars at the #AusGP has always been one of the most entertaining races, but it has never been for points. Well Fabian, we listened and we delivered.
It’s a Family Affair
Two major motor sports come together to create one big happy family. The brute force and entertainment of Supercars combined with the technology and speed of Formula 1 all racing for championship points. What more could you ask for.
Signed Sealed Delivered
You now not only have to cover the Formula 1 championship, but now Supercars championship as well. We like to keep you busy Fox Sports.
Race Formats already in discussion
The championship has just been announced and already teams and drivers are anxious to find out what the race format will be. What do you think it should be?
It will be gloves off for all teams next year as what was often treated as a trial/testing round will now be for points. We are locked in to see some entertaining racing.
You're welcome Mark
