Jamie Whincup - Car #88

"The car was much better today, we made a good gain overnight. The car was good to drive and competitive. We maximised our performance again in qualifying and the shootout, which was great. We went into the race and gave it everything we had, we absolutely made the most of it. We led from the start, the car was quick at the start, we just didn't have tyre life over car 17. I'm always a big believer that the fastest car should win and it did this weekend. We were the second quickest car and we maximised points, which I'm happy with. Ultimately it was just pace that dropped us back behind Scott (McLaughlin). The other car took on a little bit more petrol and then closed that gap, so he was easily going to jump us at the end there. We were never beating car 17, they were the fastest and fast cars win races."

Shane van Gisbergen - Car #97

"The guys did a lot of work overnight to fix the car. It was mechanically sound, but still we have some issues there that we have been chasing all weekend. We overhauled the car again after the shootout, but it was good to make the shootout even though we had so many problems, so we were happy with that. In the race we had the same issues and no traction also. The car was still fast, but again, horrible to drive, so to salvage a third was great. We had a really good battle at the end there. We had a five-car chain that we were holding out and it was pretty exciting racing. We have a lot of work to do to improve, but I'm so happy with how our guys worked this weekend. They've never given up and they're always chasing problems and working so hard. We'll celebrate tonight and in the next few weeks we'll make the car better."
