1 SEBASTIEN OGIER/JULIEN INGRASSIA
“OK, we are fast, but the two guys back are faster. We are focusing on our drive and concentrating on our job for the Championship”.
33 ELFYN EVANS/SCOTT MARTIN
“There is a lot of cleaning. It’s going to be faster for every car. As expected...”
11 THIERRY NEUVILLE/MARTIJN WYDAEGHE
“Lots of cleaning in this stage. It’s not easy. There are high speeds and the grip is low. The guys in the back are going to be much faster”.
69 KALLE ROVANPERÄ/JONNE HALTTUNEN
“We had a moment and I have to say we are lucky to escape. The notes were optimistic and maybe we were pushing a little bit more”.

“This one was quite OK. It’s a nice stage”.
44 GUS GREENSMITH/CHRIS PATTERSON
“Yes, we are cleaning. And we also spun in one left corner. We lost the brake point and we lost about 5 seconds”.
6 DANI SORDO/CANDIDO CARRERA
“I am not happy. Car is moving a lot in the rear. It’s impossible to keep it straight”.
