Car 1.   OGIER/INGRASSIA

“It has been a perfect day to be honest. We can be very happy with that. I push as hard as I could. This

one I like a lot. This one was quite slippy. We have a lot of tyre wear.”

 

Car 4.   MIKKELSEN/JAEGER-SYNNEVAAG

“I am trying. But still I would like to be faster.”

 

Car 5.   NEUVILLE/GILSOUL

Rear-left puncture and gearbox oil on the track at the stage finish. “Early in the stage I

started sliding and ran wide and hit a ditch and realised I may have a puncture. That’s when I slowed

down.”

 

Car 6.   SORDO/DEL BARRIO

“I did not do a really big push. I dont have a spare, so I cannot have a puncture here.”

 

Car 7.   LATVALA/ANTTILA

“I push maximum now. I cannot go any faster. I gave everything on this stage.”

 

Car 10.   MEEKE/NAGLE

“Of course I lost 30 (last stage), but I am still happy to be in second.”

 

Car 11.   LOEB/ELENA

“We have only one spare wheel because we had a puncture, so I didn’t push.”

 

Car 31.   TIDEMAND/ANDERSSON

“I really enjoy every day. I thank everyone who has been helping me.”

 

Car 38.   GREENSMITH/PARRY

“Yes it’s been pretty good. I’ve not made any mistakes which is pretty good. We tried some softs this

afternoon, but they are pretty obliterated now. They will probably be ideal for the super special.”
