"I am disappointed in my own performance but overall from a team perspective,we fought hard this weekend to make it happen. We were nowhere on Friday and to get P5 and P6 as a result today is a credit to the team's effort and hard work. We shouldn't roll out with the 20th quickest car so slightly behind the A-ball this weekend with car pace. Unfortunately, in the race I fought hard at the start and the tyres were going off hard. In the end, I pushed a little too hard, dropping a spot and therefore we couldn't maximise the results we hoped for. We were aiming for P4 and ended P5 so we will live and learn. I don't feel like we performed worse than anyone else, it's just that as a group we didn't have a great weekend."

"Today we did a good job at salvaging the performance and results from what could have been. Yesterday we finished in sixth and to get sixth position again today is not too bad; considering the results from practice and being way off the mark. There is not much to say, as it is what it is, and looking at the competition, we were only good enough for sixth. The team worked very hard and put together strategies that were good, but during the race I didn't get any opportunities to pass anyone out there. It was more about just driving around the track for 41 laps, so not much actual racing which we prefer to see and having more opportunities to pass other cars. In the end, we just had to work our way up to sixth. We will take it and move on forward to the next round in Auckland."
