20 ANDREAS MIKKELSEN/ELLIOTT EDMONDSON
“Today it was quite rough. So far we are driving nice. Tomorrow we want to take care of the car and the tyres. Now we are very safe after Mads’s [Ostberg] retirement, which of course is very sad. For sure I will try to win. I have saved the soft tyres and now we are in a good position. Tomorrow we will have the same strategy, without risks”.
21 MADS OSTBERG/TORSTEIN ERIKSEN
Retired in SS5 due to transmission problem.
22 MARCO BULACIA/MARCELO DER OHANNESIAN
“We had a strong start and we need to continue the same way, because the team is fighting for the Championship. The car was very good in terms of set-up. The most difficult stage for me was SS5, because the grip was inconsistent”.
23 NIKOLAY GRYAZIN/KONSTANTIN ALEKSANDROV
“It was tricky. We have a new car and need to drive more. It’s important to understand how it works. Tomorrow the strategy is more or less the same”.
25 MARTIN PROKOP/MICHAL ERNST
“We had two punctures in SS2 and SS3, and lost a lot of time. After that we slowed down to save the car”.
26 SEAN JOHNSTON/ALEX KIHURANI
“We had only one front left puncture in SS3. After two terrible events we have to finish. We are trying to stay out of trouble. I like the stages a lot, especially Elatia. It’s one of the most enjoyable I have driven, definitely the most enjoyable in 2021”.
27 GEORG LINNAMÄE/JAMES MORGAN
“Today it was tricky. In the second stage we had a puncture. We have a new car and we’re trying to learn it. Tomorrow we will have the same strategy with no risks. We know we have to be smart, because many things can go wrong”.
29 LEONID URLICHICH/TOM WOODBURN
“It’s my first in a 4WD or turbo car in Europe. It is a great experience. The pace of the top drivers in the category are awesome. That’s WRC. It’s a great experience and fun. Today we didn’t have any major problems, apart from two slow punctures in road sections.”
