"Sunday at Perth done, it was a better day for us. We tried to improve our qualifying car as much as we could - we felt like our race car was okay yesterday - so we did that and snuck into the top ten; not as high up as we probably could’ve been or wanted to be, but we moved a few spots forward in the race. We both had decent speed, so overall we got better and better every time we hit the track. So we take away some valuable learnings, we’ll study some more and focus now on Darwin."

"Great to finish the weekend on a good note, to have Anton and I running around together the whole race. More importantly, there were good signs in qualifying, particularly in Q2 - topping the Q2 segment. We didn’t quite get it right in Q3, but there were really good signs in qualifying, which was important for us. We had some big changes overnight, so credit to the team for making those improvements. We had a good, solid race, not quite enough speed, we were just shy of a podium, but it was an improvement on yesterday. All in all, it was a good weekend despite the mechanical issue yesterday. I think as a team, we executed really well. We would’ve been in the top ten for both races, even in tough circumstances yesterday. It was a shame to let those points slip, but it’s certainly a good sign of character from our team to bounce back overnight after a lot of disappointment yesterday."
