11 THIERRY NEUVILLE/MARTIJN WYDAEGHE
“It’s a big mess. All day we have a lot of technical issues and now the power steering issue. It’s a day to forget. Now we have lost 4 minutes and a lot of time, but we are not going to give up”.
69 KALLE ROVANPERÄ/JONNE HALTTUNEN
“It’s OK. There was a lot of cleaning, I tried to keep the lines, but it was not easy. Clean run”.
8 OTT TÄNAK/MARTIN JÄRVEOJA
“It was a good challenge. We changed the set-up, as it was more rough now”.
44 GUS GREENSMITH/CHRIS PATTERSON
“There is some damage in the front. Maybe a puncture. I don’t know”.
6 DANI SORDO/CANDIDO CARRERA
“Really difficult and bad conditions. I couldn’t push more. It’s a weird feeling in such a rough stage to punish the car”.
16 ADRIEN FOURMAUX/RENAUD JAMOUL
“Really tough and hard. Some places are OK, but the 75% of the stage was really rough. But that’s part of this rally”.
7 PIERRE-LOUIS LOUBET/FLORIAN HAUT-LABOURDETTE
“We had a puncture”.
Kalle Rovanpera sets again the fastest time and slightly extends his lead over Ott Tanak by 3,8 sec. Sebastien Ogier is third and has a small gap over Dani Sordo. More drama for Thierry Neuville, who forced to leave the tyre fitting zone with 24 minutes delay due to a power steering problem. The Belgian also lost a lot of time in SS 4. Elfyn Evans still has problem with his gearbox.
