"Obviously we are very happy with the end results. I feel like we have won the most improved award as we were very ordinary three weeks ago. The engineers have done a fantastic job to turn things around and give us competitive pace this weekend, but the next step isn't a click of the dampers or click of a roll bar, it's a lot more involved. The team next door has absolutely raised the game and they're in another league at the moment. I feel that for the good of the sport it's up to us to do the something and step up to the challenge. It's fantastic to beat everyone else but if we are serious, we need to make some big changes to beat Car 17 at a consistent level. We feel good about maximising this weekend with the tools we had but again when we get back, we will sit down as a team and work out how we can get more tools in the toolbox."

"During today's qualifying we didn't really get the most out of it like we should have. We were a tenth away from second but that small difference in time makes a big difference in the positions and obviously still hurts. The race was good, but I couldn't quite get enough pace in the middle stint which hurt us in the end. We have now taken a different approach in set up so it will no doubt be interesting at Winton. It is a different track; twisty and bumpy in comparison to smooth and flowing here in Perth. The different set up philosophy will it work there? I'm not too sure but after this weekend it looks like we have taken the step forward that we have needed to be more competitive."
