All of his 122 race victories were won with Triple Eight.
But, it’s understood Whincup will still be involved with the team, moving into a management role. He’s set to take on the roles of the Managing Director and Team Principal, with Roland Dane stepping down.
Tripe Eight is yet to confirm who’ll replace Whincup as a driver, and will reportedly consider its options over the coming months.
