STEWARDS SUMMARY OF JUDICIAL OUTCOMES, Update #4 FINAL: issued Sunday, 3 March 2019 at 1930hrs.
Sunday 2 March 2019

Matters from Race 2:
Deputy Race Director Incident Determinations
During the Race the DRD investigated the following Incidents and determined that none of them warranted referral to the Stewards:
- On Lap 1 at the entry to Turn 4, Car #78, Simona de Silvestro spun across traffic. Hawk Eye footage demonstrated that no other Car was involved;
- On Lap 1 at Turn 9, contact occurred between Car #6, Cam Waters, and Car #9, David Reynolds, as a result of which Car #9 was pushed wide over the exit kerb and lost positions. Hawk Eye footage revealed that the front left wheel on Car #6 had interlocked with the front right wheel of Car #9 and that the contact and subsequent movement of the Cars was not caused by any breach of the Rules by the Driver of Car #6;
- Upon the Safety Car restart on Lap 28, Car #8, Nick Percat, and Car #9, David Reynolds, which was behind Car #8, were observed to have apparently increased speed slightly after the lights on the Safety Car were extinguished contrary to Rule D10.2.12.1. However, before the Safety Car returned to the Pit Lane, all Cars were in procession and travelling at the same speed and hence neither Car #8 or Car #9 gained any advantage which might warrant further investigation;
- On Lap 60, contact was observed between Car #7, Andre Heimgartner, and Car #9, David Reynolds, at Turn 14 as a result of which Car #7 spun. Hawk Eye footage revealed that Car #7 was carrying too much speed and lost control of the rear of the Car causing the collision with Car #9 which had left racing room for Car #7.

Stewards' Decisions Penalties imposed
The Stewards imposed the following Penalties during the Race:
- A 5 Second Time Penalty on Car #33, Richie Stanaway, for a breach of the Turn 8 Specific Instructions of the Race Director by the Competitor's and Driver's Briefing Instructions in failing to yield to Car #22, James Courtney, at the 150m board on the entry to Turn 8 on Lap 1;
- A Pit Lane drive through Penalty on Car #55, Chaz Mostert, for an unsafe Pit release on Lap 27 causing a collision with Car #15, Rick Kelly, which was already wholly in the fast lane;
- A Pit Lane drive through Penalty on Car #12, Fabian Coutlhard, for a breach of Schedule B2 Article 2.1.1 (Careless Driving) causing contact with Car #3, Garry Jacobsen, at Turn 4 on Lap 53 which resulted in Car #3 colliding with the wall on the exit of Turn 4 and sustaining damage;
- A 90 Second Post-Race Time Penalty on Car #15, Rick Kelly, for failing to comply with the Compulsory Pit Stop Requirements (failed to take on 140L of fuel during the Race).

Matters from Race 1:
Deputy Race Director Incident Determinations
Following an Incident at Turn 7 on Lap 25 when Car #2, Scott Pye, collided with Car #5, Lee Holdsworth, which was stopped at the exit of Turn 7 after Car #5 had collided with the tyre barrier and was partially blocking the Circuit, the DRD conducted an investigation to determine if Car #2 had breached Article 4.2 of Schedule B3 (failed to obey Yellow Flags which were displayed at the entry to Turn 7 due to Car #5's position). After reviewing Judicial Camera footage from Car #2 (and from Car #22, which was immediately behind Car #2 at the entry to Turn 7), and Hawk Eye footage, the DRD determined that no breach of the Rules was established.

Stewards' Decisions Penalties imposed
The Stewards imposed a 10 second Time Penalty on Car #12, Fabian Coulthard, for a false start in breach of Rule D8.1.6.2.

Following a request for investigation from Shell V-Power Racing Team into an allegation that Car #88, Jamie Whincup, had also breached Rule D8.1.6.2, the Stewards reviewed Hawk Eye footage of the Race start which revealed that although Car #88 had moved from its original position before the starting signal was given, it was stationary and correctly aligned at the time the start signal was given.

The Stewards imposed a Penalty of Loss of 30 Team Championship Points and a Fine of $3,000 on Matt Stone Racing for a breach of Rule D11.7.4 after broadcast footage showed the wheels of Car #35 rolled over an incompressible jack which had been placed under Car #35 during a Pit Stop.

Following the Session the DRD received a request for investigation from Triple Eight Race Engineering (Australia) Pty Ltd alleging that Car #55, Chaz Mostert, and Car #78, Simona de Silvestro, impeded Car #97, Shane van Gisbergen, between Turns 11 and 14 . Following a review of Judicial Camera Footage from Car #97, no Breach of Rules was observed.

Following the Session the DRD conducted an investigation at the request of Chasports Racing Pty Ltd into an allegation that Car #3, Garry Jacobsen, impeded Car #18, Mark Winterbottom, on entry to Turn 1. The DRD was also requested to investigate Car #18's 'kerb strike' and loss of time on the relevant Lap. Following a review of Judicial Camera Footage from Car #18, no Breach of Rules by Car #3 was observed. Following a review of external (HawkEye) vision to corroborate the Supercars Timing System, Car #18 was found to have breached Schedule B2 Article 3.3.1 (left the Race Track at Turn 2 by reason that no part of the Car remains in contact with it).

Stewards' Decisions Penalties imposed
There were no penalties issued. During the Session Car #99, Anton de Pasquale, caused a Red Flag after colliding with the wall at the exit of Turn 8. In accordance with Rule D6.1.11, Car #99's fastest lap was deleted and it was not permitted to take any further part in the Session. As Car #99 failed to set a qualifying time, the Stewards have granted permission for Car #99 to start Race 1 from the rear of the grid.
