The youngest driver pairing in the field were forced to stack multiple times in pit stops across the 161 lap race; however the Monster Energy Racing pair put forward a consistent drive to finish just a whisker away from the podium.
Chaos at the end of the race and a 15 second penalty to race leader Jamie Whincup saw Waters to fifth in the final stint before being elevated to fourth place post-race. Kiwi pair Chris Pither and Richie Stanaway also benefitted from the late-race safety cars after being forced to conserve fuel for a lengthy period of time. Despite running tenth at one point, fuel-saving mode put the pair back to 12th place at the finish.
