Supercars: Brash Australian David Reynolds continues to bait Scott McLaughlin with verbal jabs

Supercars bad-boy Dave Reynolds has continued his public stoush with Scott McLaughlin, claiming the championship leader "might as well be driving an F1".

McLaughlin has dominated in his Ford Mustang this season, winning 16 of 22 races, including a brace at The Bend SuperSprint in South Australia over the weekend.

Reynolds believes McLaughlin is driving away from the pack, thanks to an unfair mechanical advantage.

The Penrite Racing star is yet to re-sign, but said he could never be teammates with McLaughlin.

Asked whether Reynolds would ever drive alongside McLaughlin at DJR Team Penske, he didn't mince his words.

"They wouldn't have me," Reynolds said. "I don't fit the cookie-cutter mould. 

"I've got nothing against him. I think he's got a bigger problem with me than I do with him.

"I'm just honest and I can see situations for what they are, and I can call it how it is."

Despite his controversial personality, Penrite Racing boss Barry Ryan is keen to re-sign Reynolds.

"Dave has said for a while now that he wants to be here for a long time and we want him here, so I think it's just a formality," Ryan said.

"We'll see where it heads, but I don't think it's a real problem. Dave wants to stay, we want him to stay - it's as simple as that.

"I'd be very surprised, from all the talks we've had internally, so we'll just push on and do what we do behind closed doors."
