"For me, today we didn't win, we were in a good place but a good result for the team in securing the teams' championship with one round still to go. Obviously it was great to secure the pole position today, and Shane (van Gisbergen) was right behind me so we were able to put the battle up to the team next door at DJR (Team Penske). We'll go into Newcastle with a big job on our hands and I'm excited to see how it all transpires. New Zealand has been great - there is a massive level of passion over here which is awesome and we just need to embrace the events that transpired over the weekend. Those shenanigans that go on off the track are just as good as the on track action, which is just fantastic. The day we're not talking about this sport and the day there is no passion, and no controversy, is the day we have to worry - I think this weekend has been fantastic for the sport. It's great that we've come down to the last round of the year with only a handful of points in the championship it's high stress for the drivers, the teams and all the families involved. There's no need to be negative and getting on your keyboard to have a crack at someone, I think we should embrace all the drama that's happened this weekend and no doubt it will continue in the next few races to come."

"This weekend has been one of the coolest experiences for me. Everyone was saying how bad the social media storm was overnight but I didn't read any of it, I went to bed and then came in this morning and everyone was friendly and cheering for both Scotty (McLaughlin) and I. We had five kiwis in the Top Ten Shootout today as well, I watched the first two of them and saw Andre (Heimgartner) go through and the crowd went nuts, then I even did a little fist bump when Richie (Stanaway) went to the top of the board. The passion here is second to none, it almost rivals Bathurst, it's so awesome, we need to have a race down in the South Island as well. I was told that the crowd numbers are up 10,000 on last year and I'm happy to contribute to that. The controversy just adds to that, good and bad, I'm happy to be part of it and happy to be in the fight. Scotty (McLaughlin) and I always race super hard and give each other a car width, or a mirror, nothing more. The battles with him are always on edge, but always fair and awesome. I can't wait to take the fight to him and enjoy the last couple of races. Although, I'm pretty nervous about the championship battle, this is my life and my ambition to win the championship again. I'm more prepared and more experienced than last time. I'll try to have some good preparation, come back here next week to relax and I'll just try and enjoy myself."
