Shane van Gisbergen - Car #97

"What a huge weekend, we all worked so hard. It's a great start to the year, everyone has pushed through the off-season and everyone really deserves this result. It was a hard race, I had some fun battles. I struggled at the start, lost some time, it was all happening. Coming into the weekend we had a fair few unknowns, but it's great to know that we know how the car performs, we know the car is fast. We cracked the big 300 podiums for Triple Eight today as well, which is an awesome milestone for the team. We can really head into the season knowing we gave the opener our all."

Jamie Whincup - Car #88

“Tough day, it started with the mistake I made in the Shootout. We fought hard, I’m pretty proud of what everyone’s done, we just can’t take a trick with the strategy. We put a heap of petrol in and really relied on a safety car. Who would have thought there would be no safety car in 250 kilometers! All in all, we had good car speed. Massive congratulations to SVG (Shane van Gisbergen), awesome team result. I just wish car #88 had contributed more than it did.”
