“I think both cars struggled a little bit more than yesterday in qualifying. Quite a few drivers improved overnight and we probably didn’t adapt to the track conditions this morning as it was a little bit different to yesterday, and there was certainly some fast guys out there. We managed to scrape into the top ten in qualifying and then qualified seventh in the shootout. There was quite a bit of oil on the track for the shootout and I just didn’t quite get my lap right. I would have liked to have been a bit further up the grid to have had a better chance in the race, but I just wasn’t fast enough. I didn’t get a great start in the race and dropped back to ninth. The team had a great strategy, so we pitted early and went very aggressive and managed the rest of the race from there. We ended up in fifth position and only a second or two off a podium. Overall, it’s been a solid weekend – a second and a fifth. Hopefully, we’ll get the points from Saturday’s race to keep that second place because J think we’d be third in the championship. It’s been a good start to the year, we certainly have the pace so it’s been a solid first weekend.”

“I want to say a huge thank you to the Red Bull Ampol Racing team for their efforts in a faultless weekend. Both of our cars were awesome all weekend, and I like to think all of our talking was done on the track today. To get another race win to start the season is awesome and I’m so proud of everyone at the team for what they’ve achieved. I also want to thank all of the fans in Newcastle – it was great to be back here.”
