Jamie Whincup - Car #88
"Overall I'm unbelievably happy with that, it's been a long six months trying to get my first win and what a place to do it here in Townsville. It's a place I really love racing at and it's almost a home event for us being in Queensland. The car was great, full credit to the crew, they gave me a really quick car which was the difference, a car to be able to fight the other guys with. So a massive team effort, we dug deep and got the chocolates. It's going to be a long old grid for the next six months 'til Newcastle but we're up for the challenge and will keep our heads down."

Shane van Gisbergen - Car #97
"The car was alright. We made some good changes overnight and the boys did a great job of fixing the car after the issues yesterday. We actually weren't that happy after qualifying, but we made a good change for the shootout. We're learning all the time with these new tyres. Then in the race the first stint was atrocious. We lost the race there. I think the gap to the leaders after that got smaller and smaller, we had really good speed. It's a bit baffling what went wrong. There are some positives and I think we've got enough information to move forward. There's a couple of areas of the car we need to make better, but I don't think we fully understand why we're quick sometimes and why we're not other times. It's the inconsistency of every tyre set that we don't understand. There's a lot of work to be done, but it's a good day for the team to have two fast cars and I think Craig (Lowndes, TeamVortex) was fast as well moving through the field."
