“It was a good first race. The team did a great job because on the first lap I lost a couple of positions because I didn’t put myself in the right places on track, but we had a great strategy and I felt like I got the most out of what I could for the first race, and overall, I was pretty happy with how it all went. We’re going to have to wait and see what the weather is like tomorrow. In the unlikely event that it is dry, we learnt a lot on strategy today and car set up that we can use tomorrow, but at this stage it’s looking like a wet race, so it’s going to be a tough time in the car. Obviously, we got a little bit of running on Friday in the wet, and also last year there was some wet running that we can get data from. The whole race was a really cool experience. The driver introductions and people cheering my name in the crowds was pretty cool, then banging doors with the other drivers on track was a lot of fun. I’m glad the first one is out of the way, even though everyone says that, but now I have a bit more of an understanding of what it’s like.”

“It was a pretty awesome night. Qualifying was about where we expected to be because there was not many changes since the last time we were here. I felt like a good qualifying lap for us was still two-tenths off, and in the race it was the same as last time we were in Sydney as well. I thought our strategy was originally a two-stop, so I was surprised we came into the pits that early. I knew a three-pit strategy was an option, but I didn’t know it was going to be that much different. It was awesome for Andrew (Edwards, #97 race engineer) to get his first win too. After the race he was angry and said he didn’t do a good job, and I had to remind him that we won by 20-seconds. He’s been very self-critical, so this is a good reward for him. It was awesome to have Tony (Quinn, Triple Eight Race Engineering team owner) on the podium to accept the team’s trophy as well. Even though the team has had a lot of changes over the break, we’re all working well, everyone’s doing their job and it’s a cool environment to be a part of.”
