FLASH 9



Car 33. EVANS/MARTIN
“Much cooler and not a lot of grip in there.”

Car 11. NEUVILLE/GILSOUL
The Belgian stopped around five kilometres into the stage and was looking under the bonnet of the i20.
There was no way to continue and third place was lost.

Hyundai Shell Mobis WRT team principal Andrea Adamo said: “No news (Thierry). I know what it
could be. It is not finish this day. I hope it will finish soon. I just regret the small crash (for Ott) this
morning.”

Car 17. OGIER/INGRASSIA
“It has been a good day. Happy to be here. It’s always good when you are third on the road and you are
in the lead. So I am happy.”

Car 69. ROVANPERĀ/HALTTUNEN
“Now it is already a bit better. I am starting to get used to the car on gravel and finding some things
I need to do and things I don’t need to do. There will be some learnings tomorrow.”

Car 8. TÄNAK/JARVEOJA
“We have had a really bad day today. Unfortunately the last stage was cancelled. It has been a difficult
day. I think we got some places back now.” He moved up to third place.

Car 3. SUNINEN/LEHTINEN
“It’s been quite good day. We had a long break beore the last stage and I didn’t want to push on cold
tyres”.

Car 44. GREENSMITH/EDMONDSON
“I want to get faster as the weekend goes on – that is the plan. Some mistakes here and there but it’s
coming together.”

Car 20. GRYAZIN/FEDOROV
“A Ilttle bit better. We are trying to increae our pace. Not my limit but it is a working pace. It is slippery
and the tyres feel quite worn. Some places were difficult to manage. It felt like concrete on the road. I’m
excited for the city stages. I will try and keep it on the island.”

Car 21. VEIBY/ANDERSSON
“For sure, not happy. It was a really tragedy in the morning with the brakes. It still feels like I only have
brakes on the front. I don’t get the confidence at all.”

Car 22. TIDEMAND/BARTH
“It was still a bit of dust on the stage. I did not want to use the lights. It was quite a nice stage for me.”

Car 43. BLOCK/GELSOMINO
A roll was not the reason for the American’s retirement…..“We just had an overheating issue and we
don’t know why. I got a warning light on and ignored it. I drove as hard as I could until it stopped in the
stage.”
