“Our first qualifying session this morning was really good. I got myself in a good position and managed to score P2 behind SVG (Shane van Gisbergen). Everything felt really solid after that qualifying session and it was great for the team to get a one-two – one position up from yesterday. Heading into the next qualifying session, I felt confident, but then on my green run, SVG & (Tim) Slade came together, and that session was red-flagged, which was unfortunate for us and put us back a few rows from where we should’ve been. I got a good start in the first race today and was leading the race for the first couple of laps. I had a little bit of a margin in front of Shane (van Gisbergen), but then the race was red-flagged, and we had to reset and go again. I was battling with Shane for a bit of the race, and finished P2. Getting my first podium was a great feeling. I thought we might have had a chance at scoring a podium this weekend because our cars were so good. It’s a cool feeling to share that podium which such a great bunch of people who have helped me over my Supercars journey. In the last race, my starting position wasn’t great which made it hard right from the start. I was racing in the pack and managed to finish P8. Overall, it was a shame not to finish the first race on a high, but I’ve just got to look at the positives from the weekend and improve at the Australian Grand Prix.”

“It’s been an awesome weekend. Our pace wasn’t up to scratch in qualifying yesterday, and even though I’ve never been the best qualifier, Andrew (Edwards, race engineer) had some ideas which we tried today, and my car turned out to be awesome in both qualifying sessions. In the races, we had to do it the hard way to get into the lead, but the braking on my car was really good, and I was able to get some really cool passes under brakes. I couldn’t be happier walking away with two wins today. Although it was the perfect weekend points-wise, we always have things we need to improve on and there’s always things to get better at. Our procedures and management of qualifying could have been better over the weekend, and there’s a few more things we can look at before the Australian Grand Prix (AGP). The AGP has always been dominated by the Shell cars, and they’re going to be tough to beat, but that track is going to be epic to race at – I can’t wait.”
