“It was a tough week with the difficult conditions starting from the recce. Starting first on this rally I was not expecting a good result, so the feeling is amazing. It’s always nice to add more wins, of course the next challenge is the championship and we need to focus on that. It was quite a big challenge, also for the locals, and it was very nice to see all these greek fans on the stages still during these difficult times. It was nice to give them something to enjoy.”

#33 Elfyn EVANS / Scott MARTIN
“We were very lucky to stay in the rally after the radiator issue that we had, obviously we lost over a minute, so to come back to second place I think we have to be happy considering everything. It is always a challenge to drive here, it doesnt’t give you the same excitement and thrill as a rally in Finland or Estonia, but is has its own challenges. We have to keep trying for the championship.”

#11 Thierry NEUVILLE / Martijn WYDAEGHE
“It could have been very nice, it could have been a victory, but unfortunately yesterday’s problems brought everything to an end. We lost the hope for win and for the title aswell. A frustrating weekend, we are happy to go home now. The special stages really nice to be honest, I enjoined driving, but unfortunately we couldn’t get the result we deserved.”

#8 Ott TÄNAK / Martin JÄRVEOJA
“I liked the stages, I enjoined. It’s difficult to say what could have happened, everything is possible in the rallies.”

#17 Sebástien OGIER / Vincent LANDAIS
“The result was not good. After the storm the organizers did a really good job in order to keep the rally running and we have to thank them.”

#4 Esapekka LAPPI / Janne FERM
“We had a lot of problems on Friday ans Saturday and we lost a lot of time, but for sure it was important to finish. In the end the result is not horrible, but it’s far away from ideal. The stages were much better than during the recce, the organizers did a good job and I have nothing to complain about.”

#18 Takamoto KATSUTA / Aaron JOHNSTON
“It was really tough. Last year I was for the first time here, it was a very difficult rally. Stages are nice, but I wasn’t happy with my performance. This year the car was working very well and I enjoined the stages. Conditions were very tough and rough, it’s a very demanding rally. I’m really looking forward to a podium at some point in the future -it means a lot to me.”

#6 Daniel SORDO / Cándido CARRERA
“Many things happened, like on a normal Acropolis rally, but we survived. It was a very difficult rally this year due to the conditions. I’m not so really happy, I would like to have a better pace, but the third position is not bad.”

#9 Jourdan SERDERIDIS / Frederic MICLOTTE
“It was a very good result for us. We wanted to be first greek crew and we did it. There was not a big fight, because the best guys, like Lambros, Alexandros and Panagiotis, have retired. Still we had a good drive, without issues and punctures and overall a very good result. We had a lot of fun on all the stages!”
