Whincup unfazed at being centre of attention at Hamilton

The defending V8 Supercar champion Jamie Whincup's not fazed at being the centre of attention at this weekend's round on the Hamilton street circuit.

Whincup, who's switched to Holden this year, after previously driving a Ford, won the Hamilton event last year and is leading the current championship after six rounds.

He says he's had number one painted on his car for more than a year now and is comfortable being the front runner.

Whincup also enjoys the Hamilton circuit, which is tighter than most of the other race venues.
