“Today was really enjoyable. We emphasised doing some long-runs in the first practice session this morning and tried to get as many laps as we could. To be honest, that was the same goal in the second practice session and qualifying as well. I felt better after every lap I did around the track. To get inside the top ten for qualifying was pretty solid for our first qualifying here. I had to use two green tyres to get into Q3 which hurt us in the end, but we had to use them to get through. My green tyre pace was really strong as well. I felt like if we had green tyres in Q3, we would have been on the front two rows of the grid, but with used tyres, we were back a little further but it made the race interesting. I enjoyed the race a lot – it was really good fun. The team had a great strategy and the pit stops were spot on. I’m definitely moving in the right direction, so hopefully we have a better qualifying tomorrow and can be on track for an even better result.”

“It’s good to finally win in Perth. The car has been so good today – I haven’t had such a good car at this place in both qualifying and the race. I was a bit worried at the start because Anton (de Pasquale) and Cam (Waters) were very quick, and I wasn’t saving my tyres at all – I was pushing really hard, so I was a bit worried. They pulled away then they came back a bit and then pitted. I was surprised by how much tyre life I had so I kept going. The car felt a bit funky putting two tyres on that late, especially the way it was braking, and I was a bit right-hand-down for a while, but it was a really cool win. It was cool to win for Holden and General Motors. Obviously, Holden isn’t with us anymore, but it’s still great to represent them in their final year on the Supercars grid. It was super cool racing back under lights as well. It’s difficult to see in some areas, but much better then in 2019. When you’re following someone and you see all of the sparks coming out of their brakes and seeing disks glowing coming out of the corners is awesome. Hopefully we put on a good show for all of the fans out there tonight.”
