Stoner, who is tipped to move into V8 Supercars in some capacity with Triple Eight next season, took to Twitter following today's Race 26 to slam Winterbottom for a late-race pass the Ford Performance Racing driver made on rival James Moffat.
The move saw the two Falcons run side-by-side through the early part of the Turn 11/12/13 complex before Winterbottom completed the overtake by taking to the grass.
“Amateur racing from @mwinterbottom, didn't know that you can use the grass to overtake!!” wrote Stoner on the social networking website.
Winterbottom was quick to reply following the race, writing: “seriously dude? You may need to attend a drivers briefing to work out our rules for next year as this was discussed.”
He then cheekily added in a second post: “I look forward to racing you and seeing how a professional performs. #ithinkigetpaid?”
Winterbottom also wrote that Stoner had been “brain washed already”, clearly referring to the amount of time the 27-year-old has spent with the TeamVodafone outfit in recent times.
