Jamie Whincup - Car #88
"Today was certainly a weird one as we were leading the race, and in control, but we were indecisive about when we were going to pit due to the lapped traffic out on the track and the fact we weren't getting any blue flags. If we'd received blue flags, we would have kept going but being stuck where we were was the start of it all. Cauchi (David Cauchi, Race Engineer) had said over the radio that we weren't the leader and to go passed the safety car. I stopped behind the safety car to give it the opportunity to put the green lights on, waited a few seconds but it seemed as if they were all asleep and I just got on with it. Unfortunately, it didn't work out. It would have been nice if the car behind had followed. Clearly, an error was made, but at the end of the day it meant we finished towards the back of the pack. If we'd stayed behind the safety car we would have only gained maybe one or two spots so in hindsight we weren't going to get a much higher position than we did anyway. From that point on it was pretty much the end of the race for us. It's disheartening, as we have been working hard to improve performance and when there's an incident like today certain questions start arising. At the moment the next round isn't on my mind because we need the time to head home to regroup and refocus."

"Firstly, it's an amazing feeling to get the Jason Richards Trophy again as he was a special person who meant so much to everyone. Out on track, obviously there was an incident with the safety car, but we knew we were in a good position and just had to keep it together the whole race to try and push for the win. The whole weekend was good as we had made some gains with the cars. Certainly, the pace on both cars has improved. Now it will just be about trying to find the necessary balance moving forward. That will make it interesting to see how the cars perform at Bathurst. It's been an unreal atmosphere here with everyone supporting the drivers and especially the Kiwi drivers. For Scott to take the win and have a Kiwi 1-2 today was an awesome finish to the weekend in New Zealand."
