"We didn't have the fastest cars by a long shot but we worked as a team to do everything we could over the weekend to get the best results possible. To finish second overall and third today, we take it and run with it and consider the Melbourne 400 a success. We understand there is a lot of work to do but we will be more fired up to find further performance gains within the car and the team. Without a doubt the team has the same opinion that we will continue pushing hard to bridge the deficit and if we get there it will be a win for everyone; the competition will be stronger and we can give the cars in front a run for their money. It's also a proud moment to rock up with 200 podiums. I have been working really hard in this category for a while, I don't usually go for the numbers but it's really nice when they arrive."

"That was the end of a horror weekend on our side of the garage. I felt like a punching bag in that race. I started in fifth position and was hoping for a good start and clean race. I was supposed to then settle into the race to see if we could improve the car but everyone else had other ideas. It's a real shame finishing almost last, but we need to move on and be better."
