1 SEBASTIEN OGIER/JULIEN INGRASSIA
“I think I can be happy for today. We’ve done the best we could. We had no problems. In this one it was dry and loose. I hope we didn’t lose too much in this stage”.
33 ELFYN EVANS/SCOTT MARTIN
“We’ve done everything we can. Unfortunately, this is what it is today. We have to get back to the service and see what we can do tomorrow”.
11 THIERRY NEUVILLE/MARTIJN WYDAEGHE
“Nothing was working today. We had lots of problems. I am proud of what we have done and we managed to come here. I thought the marshal had a red flag. We stopped to check that Pierre-Louis Loubet is OK”.
69 KALLE ROVANPERÄ/JONNE HALTTUNEN
“The feeling was OK. Hopefully the time was OK in this stage. Let’s see what we can do tomorrow”.
8 OTT TÄNAK/MARTIN JÄRVEOJA
“Really struggling today. I tried hard in this one. I can’t drive the whole Rally like this. It’s difficult, but I will keep pushing”.
44 GUS GREENSMITH/CHRIS PATTERSON
“Not a good day in the office. We had a problem with the dumpers. Let’s see what happens tomorrow”.
6 DANI SORDO/CANDIDO CARRERA
“It was OK. No dramas today. This stage didn’t feel so good, I thought the time would be bad. Tomorrow is a long day”.
16 ADRIEN FOURMAUX/RENAUD JAMOUL
“It’s quite fun. The car is fantastic. We try to find different set-up in each stage, but it’s not easy because we don’t have experience with the car. But it’s a good learning process”.
7 PIERRE-LOUIS LOUBET/FLORIAN HAUT-LABOURDETTE
Retired due to broken steering.
Ott Tanak sets another fastest stage time for today and gets second place back from Sebastien Ogier. Kalle Rovanpera is still in the lead and the overall leader for Day 2, but the time gap between the first three crews is just 3.9 sec! Pierre-Louis Loubet retired due to broken steering.
