“I’m feeling ok after today’s practice sessions. In a way, the weather was quite nice to us and we managed to get two decent sessions under our belts. On my side, we still have a bit of speed to find, but Shane’s fast so we’ll have a look at some of his data overnight and be up to speed tomorrow. I had a small spin in the second practice session but nothing major from that – it was still quite damp, and I think I caught a white line or something and got pretty loose on entry. Towards the end of the session it was completely dry so we got some good running under our belts then. The day has been pretty short and sharp, and our next session is qualifying which is pretty hectic, but it’s the same for everyone. We’ll rip in tomorrow and see where we end up.”

“All of our plans went out the window when it started raining 30 seconds before the first practice session. It was difficult not being able to do continuous running with the track conditions always changing, but we ended the day in pretty good shape. We obviously wanted to try a few more different things today but everyone was in the same boat. Championship wise, it’s obviously a close one but Brodie (Kostecki) has to have a problem during the races for us to be in with a chance, and that’s not something I’d wish upon anyone. I just need to do my best, be up the front every race and score as many points as possible. Hopefully we go to Adelaide on Sunday with a chance, but he still has a pretty decent lead.”
