"I did a little change with the car set-up but also with my mind. I had to attack more - especially in the braking points and where I attack in the corners."

"Towards the end it started to get quite difficult with the tyres but I think we managed it quite well. I drove completely differently this time to last year - the car set-up is changed and my approach to the corners is a lot more brave."

"Seb did very well. There were so many cuts in there, so much stuff on the road, I couldn't drive like I did earlier. A few small mistakes early on, but I couldn't have done much better. We are on the pace, much better that last year, so anything is still possible."

"The brakes are not good at all. I have a horrible feeling with the brake pedal. I knew we had a problem before the stage and I tried to fix it. I have no chance today if I can't get it better."

"I have been fighting all morning with the brakes. I got them right here and attacked. My mistake though, I cut in a corner and hit concrete. I broke the tyre or wheel straight away. We drove 10km like this. The podium is the target now."
