1 SEBASTIEN OGIER/JULIEN INGRASSIA
“Difficult stage for me. I struggle a lot with the grip. And it’s difficult to know if this is the right tyre choice”.
33 ELFYN EVANS/SCOTT MARTIN
“Obviously we are trying, but the grip was so low. Driving down the hill I was really surprised”.
11 THIERRY NEUVILLE/MARTIJN WYDAEGHE
“No problem with the dust. There is a lot of loose gravel and there is a lot of cleaning. I had a good run and just made clean lines for the guys behind”.
69 KALLE ROVANPERÄ/JONNE HALTTUNEN
“I am feeling good. Nice tyre choice thanks to my engineer. It was difficult in the muddy places, because we had two hard tyres on the front. I tried to push and it’s quite nice”.
8 OTT TÄNAK/MARTIN JÄRVEOJA
“It was difficult. In the second part it was so slippery, that I thought I had a puncture”.
44 GUS GREENSMITH/CHRIS PATTERSON
“The first half is good. But the last part of the stage is really tricky”.
6 DANI SORDO/CANDIDO CARRERA
“I was trying to be clean, it was very slippery. I was really concentrated and I tried to push”.
16 ADRIEN FOURMAUX/RENAUD JAMOUL
“I went straight in a barrier in a slow corner. There was no grip. Really difficult to drive. I didn’t have driven in a stage like this before”. The car was damaged at the front right.
7 PIERRE-LOUIS LOUBET/FLORIAN HAUT-LABOURDETTE
“In this one it was like driving on ice at the end. It was very slippery”.
