Statement from David Reynolds:

"I unreservedly apologise for a comment I made in a press conference earlier today in relation to my female team-mates.

While it was intended to be humorous, I understand it has caused offence. As I stated in the press conference I genuinely hope they perform well as they are both highly-talented as they showed today with their pace.

We all get on very well and I've spent a lot of time with them this week helping them prepare for this race.

People know I am a little left-of-centre with my humour but I understand today I took it too far.

I have personally apologised to Renee and Simona and I fully accept the penalty handed down by V8 Supercars and any subsequent team sanctions."
