Jamie Whincup - Car #88
"DC (David Cauchi, Race Engineer) did a good job with the strategy. It was good and the car was fast. I just made a mistake. The car wobbled off the kerb and the slippery concrete and into the fence. It's a sweet and sour day - I'm so ramped for SVG. Wins are hard to come by at the moment, so to get a win in those conditions is unbelievable."

Shane van Gisbergen - Car #97
"It was really tough. I was struggling a lot and I had no grip on the slicks at the start and then it got better and then after the safety car I had zero grip. Then we did a good job at the pit stop, fueling the car up to have enough to get to the end. It was the right call, we pitted on the right lap. I had zero grip, so I was struggling to keep focus, but Shippy (Grant McPherson, Race Engineer) was really good, giving me the right messages of what we had to do and I just tried to make no mistakes. As a team victory, that's the biggest team victory there is. That's one in the sheds there and I was the lucky guy to be driving the right car. Jamie looked like he had a good start, he was catching us and going well, so it's a real shame he had a DNF. Hopefully the car's not damaged too badly. For us as a team, I think it's a huge leap forwards this weekend in performance, so hopefully we can carry it on."
