Title a formality for Whincup

6:14 am on 23 November 2009

Jamie Whincup has all but clinched back-to-back V8 Supercar championship's after his nearest rival Will Davison crashed out at Barbagallo Raceway in Perth,

All the Ford driver has to do is is turn up in Sydney in a fortnight and finish one of the two races and the championship will be his after he finished fourth yesterday behind the winner and his teammate Craig Lowndes.

Davison says his Holden Racing Team should have warned there was oil oil near the pitlane after Lee Holdsworth and Todd Kelly collided on the previous lap.

He says thecrash is an anti-climax when he was hoping the championship would be decided in Sydney.
