"I think our team principal has made it very clear there are no team orders. Definitely we can really do what we kind of want to, but I want to finish. That needs to be in our minds because two retirements in a row is not good."

"I cannot explain. I'm missing the braking bite completely. The surface is OK but something strange with the pads. It feels it doesn't bite when I press the pedal so taking the confidence out."

"It's very tricky and I need to change my driving style completely to try to manage. When you left foot brake, you have nothing. Normally I do that and now I can not do it. For the brain it's a bit tricky, but we are managing."

"It's definitely better than in the morning! The team fixed the brakes but these are pretty rough conditions. A lot of grip changes and it's not easy at all, but at least the car is behaving well."

"Full rain. The visibility was a bit on the edge sometimes and the grip was incredibly bad in some sections. The braking sections are fully muddy, but the time is quite okay considering that."

"I did what I could. I saw some bad ruts and it was tricky, especially in the places where you have dark mud. If you take these places flat then you can make time, but I went just safely through."

Changed a wheel
"Just on the landing, the rear tyre dropped from the rim. It doesn't matter - if you change a tyre on this kind of rally, it's done."
