"Only a short road section, so we have to go, but everything is okay. An okay stage for us. Some very greasy sections, but okay."

"I think I was a bit wrong with the tyres. I expected more humidity, still, there was a bit of damp which helped the super softs to survive. My lead is okay, but in one stage you can lose a lot here, so even this gap isn't really much."

"Not so happy with my drive on this one, the conditions were much drier than we thought. Not the best for these super soft tyres, so we were a bit on the safe side - but overall not a bad loop."

Off into a ditch at 25km; restarted with spectators' help
"I spin again in a hairpin and got stuck in a ditch. We lost about 30 seconds I think. Very difficult conditions."

"It's been difficult for sure, but we are here and still in the leading position. Without the spin I would be a minute in the lead, but to be leading I have to be happy. Tomorrow I will need to be good."

"One of the worst stages in my career. So much slush, it was super tricky, I was watching the lines in the road and they were going everywhere - I passed Sordo in a ditch."

"That means it's all going to plan. I wanted to be 30 seconds ahead tonight. It was very dirty in there, maybe my tyres were not the perfect choice. I was a bit on the limit."

"We don't have the right tyres for the Power Stage. There are many drivers on the softs and our super softs are going to suffer a lot there. The plan for us is finish the rally and win it. Happy so far but still 14km to go. There were no easy moments in this rally."

"It's been a difficult weekend. Often in Monte you have to face hard conditions, but this has been extremely difficult. I've never struggled with the tyres choices so much, but in the end we win and I'm super happy. I need to thank the team for another good start to the season. Everyone did mistakes this weekend - I did too. I made a few less."
