Ambrose in 2005 felt the same way - which was also his last year in the Championship - and both probably have some legitimacy to thinking that way.
Slightly different situation. People didn't like Ambrose because of his attitude and the fact he was good.

People don't like Scotty because of the stupid things and situations his team puts him in

At least IMO.

I'd say that's just as much because of the culture of V8 Supercars then compared to now, as it is from their own personalities. Remember, Ambrose was renowned for always smiling (until 2005), and mostly avoided confrontation, but would get annoyed and competitive when things went awry because of what other people did. During the eSeries, we've seen McLaughlin do the same thing. The difference is that Ambrose was living in an era where hard-heads ruled the roost, and unlike Lowndes (for example) he didn't start out as a Holden winner and then move to uncompetitive Ford teams, both of which kept Lowndes away from being targeted. As I mentioned on the last page, Supercars is a different environment now, so the politics of personal relationships plays out differently. Brand loyalty barely matters to the drivers, and all of them try to keep a clean image in the public eye. We don't really get to see much of how the drivers feel about each other, compared to what we used to.
