"The Tarmac section itself is okay but I have a few things to learn about the surface. The ice I took very slowly, I don't know the fastest way there. To minimise the mistakes there is the way. I'm pretty satisfied. I don't care about the time. Personally, an okay start."

"We are on a mission! No mistakes - that was the target. The pace is not the best but it's not so easy to drive on this dirt. This has always been the challenge for me. I need to build my confidence step by step."

"This was the cleanest stage on the loop. A bit more damp, more enjoyable than the previous one, which was a nightmare. Craig has a problem, he was slow to leave the line and let us past very well, so thanks a lot."

"It's nice to see that even with the same speed I can fight for some positions. Okay, maybe I'm getting there. I need to do a good step if I want to fight for victories in the future but for now I'm quite pleased with the performance."

went off on the same place as Bouffier, but only small delay
"Straight into a snow bank and I had to reverse. The pace note was correct. I don't know what happened - we just went straight on. Now my super-soft tyres are finished. I'll have to use the studs I think."

"I lost the rear on the gravel part and couldn't catch it. We went wide and had no chance to put the reverse on. I can't even describe my disappointment."
