"I have the same feeling, not feeling much power. The ground is much more loose, taking power away. A better stage [than before] but I don't need to fight for the win here, It's the right pace for now."

"Good. I tried to push hard but obviously there was lots of gravel on the road now and the rear was sliding wide. We used every inch of the road. Our main contender [Ogier] now is out. We have to be in the top five this weekend. That's our goal."

"We are pushing hard but the times are not what we want. There's not much we can do but continue. All is positive in terms of the championship. Tomorrow is a huge day. We might try some new damper settings tomorrow but there's not much to do. Top five would be a good result here."

"I can't drive like this. I am driving fast but I am on the maximum. The car is hitting the bump stops, bouncing back after the jumps. It makes it really difficult. Our car is working on all other the rallies, which is nice, but not Finland."

"The car is sliding but I did a normal stage. Quite enjoyable but difficult in the shade under the trees - it was difficult to read the road. Power Stage could be important."

"Yeah, I'm not sure if it will be enough to catch him, let's see what the other guys do. We were aiming to bring back more points to Seb. Even if the pace wasn't there this weekend, I have a great team behind me who are working to improve it."
