Jamie Whincup - Car #88
"It has been a bit lean this year, as we all know, but great to get my second win of the year. It all came down to pace, we had great pace all race. The guys and girls did an awesome job with the strategy, I think that was a big contributor. We are a big team at Red Bull Holden Racing, thanks to my teammate (Shane van Gisbergen) for being a team player today. No doubt what comes around goes around in situations like that. We got the win which is the main thing and now we move on to the long races of the year, the season of endurance. The win numbers I don't look at too much, it's not something I really celebrate, but every win is awesome and it's good to still be winning in one of the most competitive categories in the world. Craig (Lowndes) will probably still be around in 25 years' time. He's an awesome competitor and teammate, so we're still in the heat of the battle."

Shane van Gisbergen - Car #97
"We had a pretty good weekend of qualifying with two strong starting positions and then two good starts in the races, so that's pretty awesome for me. The race was pretty good and very exciting with lots of good battles throughout the race, which were cool to be a part of. It's hard to say if the safety car helped us, it didn't work against us, but I think we would have ended up in the same place without it. In the middle stint we were stuck behind the frontrunners, so we pitted early for the last one, but we had a fuel advantage, so we came out in front. Then I just enjoyed the battle to the finish. Jamie (Whincup) was quick, so we let him past and then battled to the end. It was pretty exciting trying to hold those guys out."
