1 SEBASTIEN OGIER/JULIEN INGRASSIA
“The conditions are tricky. The grip changes a lot. We try to find where the grip changes. I hesitate a lot. But OK, we are focused on our plan and we are not taking any risks”.
33 ELFYN EVANS/SCOTT MARTIN
“We stalled the engine near the finish. The grip was changing all the time. Not a good stage for us”.
11 THIERRY NEUVILLE/MARTIJN WYDAEGHE
“I have no lines at ll. I don’t know what the guys in front are doing. I missed the braking and went wide. Besides that, the stage was OK”.
69 KALLE ROVANPERÄ/JONNE HALTTUNEN
“I feel good. I didn’t have rhythm at the beginning, but after that we were faster. I tried to enjoy it and to protect the car”.
8 OTT TÄNAK/MARTIN JÄRVEOJA
“Nothing happened. Everything OK”.
44 GUS GREENSMITH/CHRIS PATTERSON
“I didn’t expect it to be so muddy. Maybe two softs were the best choice. We couldn’t find a good rhythm. We had a big moment but we escaped”.
6 DANI SORDO/CANDIDO CARRERA
“This stage is very different from the previous one. We tried the soft tyres. It was very muddy”.
16 ADRIEN FOURMAUX/RENAUD JAMOUL
“It was really difficult. The grip was changing a lot. We had two hot moments on braking. We had no confidence in the conditions and also I was not happy with my notes. But I enjoyed it!”
7 PIERRE-LOUIS LOUBET/FLORIAN HAUT-LABOURDETTE
“It was really tricky and very easy to make a mistake on the brakes. On the end it was very slippery. There is no grip”.
9 JOURDAN SERDERIDIS/FREDERIC MICLOTTE
“There are some muddy parts. The stage is really fast. But it’s nice and one of the most beautiful of the Rally”.
