30 YOHAN ROSSEL/ALEXANDRE CORIA
“It's a victory and the feeling is good. I think that the Championship (WRC3) is not close yet. We will see, but I plan to go to Spain, which I prefer. Honestly, Acropolis was a very good rally for me, as we kept the lead after we got it”.
31 KAJETAN KAJETANOWICZ/MACIEJ SZCZEPANIAK
“As we knew from before, that was a very hard rally for everybody. We are happy to be here. Our target was to be on the podium, but in first place. It was possible but we lost around 30 seconds at the end. It's not bad. We won the Power Stage and got extra 5 points, which is very important. My next event will be in Spain”.
32 FABRIZIO ZALDIVAR/CARLOS DEL BARRIO
“It was a quite difficult rally for us. Yesterday we missed a braking point, went into a barrier, crashed, and that was over for us. The team did an incredible job, repaired the car and today we completed all the kilometres. We did two days out of three, which is good”.
34 CHRIS INGRAM/ROSS WHITTOCK
“Great rally, with so many spectators in the special stages. Fantastic atmosphere. The weather conditions were not what we all expected. The special stages were very nice and demanding”.
35 EMIL LINDHOLM/REETA HÄMÄLÄINEN
“Actually I liked the rally. It's a challenge for the drivers because you need to have a plan and be on top of the moment, because you can find quite unexpected things on the stages. It was interesting and I'm happy that, at least, we finished all the stages without issues”.
39 MIGUEL DÍAZ ABOITIZ/DIEGO SANJUAN
“It was fantastic. Congratulations for a great rally and a beautiful country. Although yesterday we retired with broken steering rack, in general we had fun”.
40 LAMBROS ATHANASSOULAS/NIKOLAOS ZAKCHAIOS
“It wasn't the best weekend for us. I could say that it's the worst Acropolis we have done in terms of problems. Nevertheless, today was a satisfying day, as we did three special stages without problems and got more familiar with the car. We managed to smile and have fun with the car, which is important. The conditions during Recce made the rally very difficult. The crowd was huge, so the task of organizers was tough”.
43 PAULO NOBRE/GABRIEL MORALES
“The rally was good, firstly because our target was to finish. Secondly, we wanted to meet with our friends, who we don't see for almost two years. It was a lot of fun”.
45 GEORGIOS KECHAGIAS/MARIOS TSAOUSOGLOU
“At first thought we are tired, because today was another difficult day. We lost time in the second stage of the day due to puncture, and then tried to do everything right, so as to remain on time. In the last stage our only target was to finish the rally. We are very happy with our performance and the result. Thank you to all our team”.
46 PANAGIOTIS ROUSTEMIS/KONSTANTINOS NIKOLOPOULOS
“It's a great honor to participate in the Acropolis Rally, especially when it's part of WRC. It was a terrific experience. We followed our initial plan and yesterday night, when we saw that we were fourth among Greek crews, we decided to push in Sunday stages. This is what we did today and managed to catch up second place”.
47 PANAGIOTIS CHATZITSOPANIS/NIKOS PETROPOULOS
“We had a very nice time. Today, the car did everything I had imagined. We had no pressure and tried to be spectacular. It was very nice”.
48 VASILEIOS VELANIS/IOANNIS VELANIS
“First of all, finishing the Acropolis Rally is the most important thing. For me, every crew having finished the event is a winner. Congratulations to all the crews. We had so much fun, learned more about the car and had no problems. We reached the finish ramp, so we achieved our goal”.
49 IOANNIS PLAGOS/ALKIVIADIS RENTIS
“Everything was perfect. After so many years of absence from the Acropolis Rally, it was a great experience. The car is exceptional, of course we need work to do. We are at the finish, so we are happy”.
