Jamie Whincup - Car #88
"I think we were probably the third quickest car in qualifying and that's where the results were, and I pushed really hard. When you're the second car you do the best strategy you can but coming in early means the back end of the race is always going to be tough. I think (David) Cauchi (Race Engineer) made the right call on the strategy, the car was well good enough for second, but I just made a little error. I don't like to kick myself too hard because everyone makes mistakes at work on a weekly basis. I don't make many mistakes, but sometimes it happens. I'm disappointed of course, but we're lucky because we've got another opportunity to fight back tomorrow."


Shane van Gisbergen - Car #97
"The shootout really set up the day for me. I struggled on new tyres for whatever reason and we had to come up with something to try and make it work. I went through turn one and under drove but had grip, making it up the rest of the lap in the shootout. That lap was good, the car was good, and the race was good. Jamie maybe had better tyre life in that first stint, but the strategy worked out in our favour. There was racing down into turn one with a couple of factors. Obviously, you can't plan scenarios, but I did have to be close enough to stay inside Scotty (McLaughlin) and Jamie had to be close enough to follow me through. It worked out that way, we did it cleanly and ended up 1-2 which was perfect. The end result however was a little bit of a shame as it would have been great to get 1-2 for the team. It makes tomorrow that little bit harder, but we will be trying to get those points for the Teams' Championship as much as possible."
