"We hope for a trouble-free event and we just want to have some fun and go as fast as possible on these beautiful roads. I have never been 100 per cent confident on these roads, but we'll see. Last year we ended up on the podium, so hopefully we can do that again."

“I don’t feel so comfortable with the rear yet. I’m driving quite clean with a good speed. and I think that’s the best approach for us at the moment. Kalle and Ott are really fast and I hope we can be in the fight with Craig.”

"The profile is a bit different in here. I felt a bit more confident despite it being a new stage, but I am missing a bit of grip now. We have to find a good compromise and carry on - we have the whole day to find a better set-up."
