“The whole day was pretty terrible to be honest. Qualifying was really hard, and we just didn’t seem to have the qualifying pace this weekend but I think our race pace was pretty good. It was really disappointing to qualify 17th, that was by far the least competitive we’ve been all year. In the race. I had an incident on the first lap which was my own fault. I didn’t realise (David) Reynolds was there because I was focussing on (Mark) Winterbottom and making sure I kept a distance from him. I didn’t realise we were three-wide and just moved across a little bit too far which was completely my fault. Overall, it was an up-and-down weekend. Our race pace was good but obviously in qualifying we have a lot of work to do. We’ve been fast everywhere else in qualifying but just really struggled here. It’s only a week-and-a-half until Sydney, so we have to focus on that now.”

“We were still obviously struggling quite a bit in qualifying this morning, but it was a positive to make it into the shootout again. My shootout lap just felt like I had no grip, but surprisingly we moved up a few spots. It was obviously not where we wanted to be, but good to be in the top six. I got an ok start in the race, and when I went into turn one it was only two-wide, and I was just out-braking (Jack) Le Brocq, but then (James) Courtney made it three-wide which made it quite tight. Unfortunately it’s the game you play at turn one – went you can’t get on the inside there’s a high chance you can get hit. To be honest once I got through there, I probably dropped a couple of spots, but then I got run into the fence by a DJR car at the exit of turn three, and I lost another four-or-five spots. Apart from our first stint, I think we were really competitive in our second and third stints. I think our pace in the last stint was as quick as Cam (Waters) backwards, so there are positives to take out of it. I felt like it could have been a third or fourth place today, but on days like these you just have to keep finishing and be as competitive as possible.”
