"We are trying very hard. Some things are difficult to manage, but we are trying our best. Since Portugal, the chassis has improved a lot - if it could be exactly where it needs to be then it would be a great car."

"It's been very challenging, especially since the beginning of this [hybrid] generation. We are definitely very happy, especially for the mechanics - they put in an incredible effort all last year and the beginning of this year. This rally was not easy and they made a good job to keep the car going. We have made some good steps. In Portugal, we were really struggling and actually we managed to improve. No doubt, if the confidence is there then we can do a good job. We just need to keep working."
