That was a tough race today,” said Mark Winterbottom.
“I got a really good start before Reynolds got into de Pasquale at Turn 9 on the first lap which I had to avoid early on, but just didn’t have the pace later in the race.
“We experienced a few issues with throttle and steering so we’ll fix them, but we have a straight car at least and we’ll come back and fight at Albert Park.”

“I just got down to the Turn 9 hairpin and there was a car spun unsighted and I came around and was almost on the exit of the corner but clipped the front wheel and it pulled the suspension out of our car,” said Scott Pye.
“It’s really unlucky for the whole crew. Most crews have had a tough week in pit lane, but for us in particular we had a lot of bad luck with the component failure on Friday and to not score any points today is disappointing after a unavoidable incident.
“We’ll control, alt, delete this weekend and reset for the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.”
