Car #18 V. Gorban / V. Korsia ( Mini Countryman WRC): “Managed to get through, but it is a very tricky tricky stage, especially being first on the road so lots of cleaning to do”

Car #30 A. Rajhi / M.Orr (Ford Fiesta RS Wrc): “Good stage, but we overshot a junction. Very slippery and very narrow,very difficult and tricky stage but we are through”

Car #10 K. Abbring /S. Marshall (hyundai i20 WRC): “I have to wake up a bit. No issues, struggled to get the rhythm in the beginning. The car feels well though. It is very narrow. But there is a lot more grip the soft tyres are working better than expected, you can’t go wide here. If you get the rhythm right in the notes you can go very fast, but it is very tricky. A completely different stage from what done so far. It is nice”

Car #9 A. Mikkelsen / A. Jaeger(Volkswagen Polo R WRC): “It was all right. Trying a few different setups, not so bad so far. A frustrating day yesterday. Today we only can do some testing”.

Car #21 M. Prokop / J. Tomaken ( Ford Fista RS WRC): “It was nice start, but I had a bit of a moment before the end. Nice rally now, Friday and Thursday were difficult and frustrating. But now I am enjoying a nice Sunday with nice driving” [finally smiling ]

Car #6 E. Camilli / B. Veillas (Ford Fiesta RS WRC): “It was good, I liked this stage. This stage is very narrow, but it will be good in the second loop. The fight is on, Henning is the target for today”

Car#16 H.Solberg / H. I. Minor ( Ford Fiesta RS WRC): “It was OK, but the rear right suspension is broken. It broke coming out of service, really bad luck. It is not the easiest thing to drive I can tell you, there is not going to be any fight” [car looks good but rear right suspension broken]

Car #12 O. Tanak / R. Molder (Ford Fiesta RS WRC): “Nice stage, but… like normal, I am struggling with the same thing, there is nothing we can do. ” [sounding quite down]

Car #4 D. Sordo / M. Marti (Hyundai New Generation i20 WRC): “It was OK, normal. Did not take any risks. Very nice stage, a lot of grip. Good tyre choice.Just watching the battle at the front. I am getting through the stages today [managing the fourth position]” [smiling]

Car #1 S. Ogier / J. Ingrassia (Volkswagen Polo R WRC): “I am not fully concentrated, really really safe driving mode I am just going through, saving tyres. There is a bit gap to the front and to the back, I just have to manage and maybe push a little bit more in the power stage”. [not very motivated]

Car #2 J.-M. Latvala / M. Anttila (Volkswagen Polo R WRC):”I tried to have a good run, not to take risks getting a good rhythm. If Thierry gains 3 or 4 seconds there is nothing more can do, if he does not do a mistake there is no chance.” “

Car #20 T. Neuville / N. Gilsoul (Hyundai New Generation i20 WRC): “Quickest so far? Yeah, I tried to drive in clean and proper way, I enjoyed it a lot. The feeling is good. When the car is balanced, it is a lot better and I have a lot more confidence. I think I can continue like this” [looking very calm]
