"No issues. I couldn't really attack. I didn't feel the precision you need in there, and we are going to work a bit on that. I didn't feel to push more."

"We didn't have a good rhythm at all in the stage. I am not able to drive the car fast. I am really not confident with the handling, and that's where we are losing the time."

"I couldn't rotate the car, and there was a small gate. I went into neutral and had to re-engage gear, so I lost a few seconds there. I felt like I did a really good stage without the mistake."

"I don't know. I felt like we were having a puncture. I tried to carry on with the rhythm, but there were so many stones that the rim was struggling all the time."

"Unfortunately not our day. We struggled in the first two stages, but then we had a lot of trouble and two punctures without hitting anything and staying in the middle of the road. We could have probably closed in the gap to Ogier without the puncture, and a stall in the last stage now. Quite a lot of things we have to sort."

"I had a good stage. It's quite rough in sections, so I couldn't really push in some places. We are going to try and adapt that for the next stage, which will be tough as well. I don't know if I can do much more."

"Not so good to be honest. I am not that confident to push. I am hesitating in all the rough. I went with a damper which we developed for Kenya and I thought it was going to work, but I am not sure if we are going the right way."

"In this stage, I pushed a bit more. In the ruts, the car is more stable, so I can go a little bit faster. I am not sure if it's enough but hopefully we can keep up the pressure on Elfyn."

"We didn't have any moments. We had a good stage, but the tyres on the rear are too soft I think. They got a bit hot towards the end."

"The gap is quite big, and I had a try on some stages, but I don't have the speed. We tried some settings, we changed the dampers, but we don't get it working all together. I really struggle to find the performance we need, despite having the feeling that I am quite on the edge sometimes. I can't do much more."

"I don’t know. It was a few things which came together which didn't work out properly. I want to thank the team because before Portugal they only had one-and-a-half days to repair the car. I am sorry I couldn't deliver this weekend, but at least we are going home with a podium for the team. Better times will come."
