"Good stage to start the rally, the car was working very nice. I need to hope for some rain overnight so there are slippery conditions for everyone tomorrow."

"Very tricky conditions, we knew it was going to be a difficult stage but the rain made it very slippery. Obviously it is good for us fighting for a good position for the rest of the weekend but it is very challenging."

"I pushed much harder on this one, the first one was tricky being first on the road with it being wet in places. This one I pushed more and it was consistent. This stage was much drier than the first one, but towards the end it was getting quite slippy."

I'm pushing very hard, in the last couple of stages there were a few moments so maybe I need to calm down a little bit.

"Really tough, too much standing water. I had so much water on the lines. I had a spin, I had to reverse. I was maybe not committed enough and then you start making small mistakes."

"Not so easy, this stage is quite abrasive, I tried to do this loop with not as many softs so we have more for the rest of the weekend. Maybe I was too cautious with the driving."

"I was struggling with the handling at the beginning. I put on a new front-right and rear-left tyre before this stage and I think the height difference between the tyres unsettled it. I think I have lost quite a bit of time."

I have no idea, I puncture like 3 or 4k before then end. I won't be more cautious.

I try but I'm not sure it was enough. I don't know why I was complaining about the rear. The tyre wear was quite bad on this one and obviously we don't have a spare.
