Car 1.   OGIER/INGRASSIA

“The grip is not so good in places. It is always a bit longer kilometres when you are in the lead!”

 

Car 3.   SUNINEN/MARKKULA

“It’s okay. It was quite slippery stage. We didn’t do a good job.”

 

Car 4.   MIKKELSEN/JAEGER-SYNNEVAAG

Slid wide and off the track on the stage and lost around six seconds. “Trying to explore a little bit. It was

not a hard hit. I had to restart the car. It doesn’t matter too much, we have a good time to the car

behind.”

 

Car 5.   NEUVILLE/GILSOUL

“It was very loose. I struggled with the handling of the car. I try to give my best now to see for the Power

Stage.”

 

Car 6.   SORDO/DEL BARRIO

“I tried to push hard in the first stage and then now we have a gap it is easier for us and we will drive

carefully to the end of the rally.”

 

Car 7.   LATVALA/ANTTILA

“It is going very well. I am happy. One problem. I have seen the proposal for the Power Stage. I will be

first World Rally Car on the road. I am in eighth positon. The Rally2 guys should be in the front. On the

next rally I can stop talking. That is my choice then. I want you to consider what is fair and what is not

fair!”

 

Car 8.   TÄNÄK/JARVEOJA

“I was checking couple of places for the Power Stage. I tried to be very nice with the tyres. Let’s see

what we can do on the next one.”

 

Car 9.   LAPPI/FERM

“It was not a good stage”

 

Car 10.   MEEKE/NAGLE

“Problems with the driver on the stage before. I just have to try and protect my third place.”

 

Car 11.   LOEB/ELENA

“This one I was careful. I did not enjoy this one so much.”

 

Car 31.   TIDEMAND/ANDERSSON

“It is a bit more slippery. I love these stages. I just drive and the car feels fantastic.”
