1              MAGALHAES Bruno - MAGALHAES Hugo

“The second loop was better. We improved our pacenotes and the setup of the car. It was much better and I was more confident. To be honest, I didn’t expect to fight with Nasser and Kajto. So I’m happy. Tomorrow is a hard day and we will see what happens.”

2              KAJETANOWICZ Kajetan - BARAN Jaroslaw

“It was important for us to survive. Tomorrow the plan is to push. We were fast today, so we know that without problems we can be quick, and that’s why I am smiling.”

3              AL-ATTIYAH Nasser - BAUMEL Matthieu

“It was a good day, hard and rough. Everything went well with the car. We are quite happy. We are leading the rally now and we will have a good starting position for tomorrow. It’s a nice battle between Bruno, Kajto and us. I am sorry for Nikolay. Tomorrow we will see what we can do.”

5              BOSTANCI Murat - VATANSEVER Onur

“It was a very difficult day. The first loop was not good because we had many problems, but the second was much better. We just got 10 seconds penalty for trying to fix the brakes before the last stage. We are not pushing, we are trying

to survive. We are in our target which is top 5. So tomorrow it will be the same for us. Our first priority is to be at the finish.”

6              GRZYB Grzegorz - WROBEL Jakub 

“The second loop of the day was better. In the first one, we faced a problem with the brakes. But generally our drive was much faster and cleaner. Tomorrow we will try to push, although we know we are not as fast as the top drivers. But we will do our best.”

8              VON THURN UND TAXIS Albert - DEGANDT Bjorn

“It was a very good day. The start was difficult because we had problems with oversteer. But in the second loop we made successful changes, I drove in the lines and I got a much better feeling. Tomorrow is a matter of gaining experience.”

9              PHILIPPEDES George - MAHAERAS Leonidas

“We had to take a step back, in order to find a good rhythm and gain our confidence. In the second loop we didn’t have any problems, we succeeded our target and tomorrow we can push.”

12           MELEGARI Zelindo - BARONE Maurizio

“Τhe position is OK, due to bad luck for our opponents. But that’s the Acropolis Rally. You must finish. Tomorrow the stages are long and we will follow the same tactic. The second loop of the day was better than the first one for us.”

18           TSOULOFTAS Alexandros - GIRAUDET Denis

“It was a great day for us. After every stage I was more confident with the car and I realize how I can drive this car. It’s an amazing car and I am very happy. Tomorrow there is a prediction for rain and we are expecting a lot of surprises. It will be an amazing rally for the drivers and the fans.”

19           TSOLAKIDIS Socratis - DIMOS Haris

“In the afternoon we did what we had discussed during the first service, which is not to push. We are just 30 seconds behind the third, and one minute ahead of the car behind us. We could be closer to the top drivers, but we want to keep our rhythm. We were careful with our tyres, because there was big tyre wear. Tomorrow we will drive steady in the first stage and after that we will see if we can do something better.”

20           HALKIAS Efthimios - KONTOS Konstantinos

“In the last two stages we had a broken driveshaft. Despite that, I am happy for today and I am starting to fall in love with this car!”

22           PANTELI Petros - CHRISTODOULOU Kyprianos

“It was a very difficult day for us, because we had problems with the engine all day.”
