Jamie Whincup - Car #88
"We had it against us all weekend with the cracked chassis yesterday, which we fixed overnight. That was throwing all sorts of things out for us, then we couldn't really get a balance. Like the last two rounds, DC (David Cauchi, Race Engineer) did a great job to keep making the car competitive in the race. When you're in the mid-pack and are too nice, you just get carted. I left room, I tried to race hard too wide, but every time I do that I end up getting carted off, especially on the first lap. It's dog-eat-dog. I literally dropped back to last, but then I came through with our car speed. I'm certainly happy and proud of the performance of everyone in the team this weekend with what we've got. The real battle is done at the workshop. We need to bring a faster car to the track. That's motorsport, it's been the same since it started, so we just need to make the cars faster, which we'll continue to try to do."

Shane van Gisbergen - Car #97
"We had to run car 88's setup in qualifying. It's the right thing to do to work as a team - 88 is clearly better. It just doesn't work on my car or with my style. The car just doesn't respond and wouldn't stay on the track. I was almost last after the first proper run in qualifying and two of the cars I was ahead of had crashed, which is why they were behind us. So we went back to our setup, but we had the same thing. I'm just struggling and we need to work out why the car doesn't work or why I can't make it work. The race was boring, but the strategy is what saved it for us. I don't think I passed a single car, so it was all made in the pits and the guys did a great job there."
