"This one was a bit trickier compared to the first two. I felt I didn't have so much grip in the beginning and at the end I was having some understeer. I think in the middle we did okay, but we were definitely losing a bit at the beginning and the end."

"The first two stages were good, but the previous one was not a good time and we struggled with understeer on that stage. It was really difficult to make the tyre choice on that one, so let's see what we did and how it works."

"I am comfortable in the car. This car was much better than the first pass because the tyres and the car were working a lot better in the conditions. I started to struggle with the brakes a little bit towards the end of this stage - that's an issue, but hopefully it should be okay."

"Pretty okay. For sure, the guys are a bit faster but I tried to push. I am driving quite clean and I'm still in a comfortable place. We had a scary moment in the last corner - there was a scary block or something in the road and I was sure it was going to break our car, but luckily it was quite soft."

"Quite nice driving in the afternoon, but we dropped some stages in the afternoon. I can be quite happy - I am not taking the last risk or pushing, so it's okay. There were some settings on the car which went wrong on the start line (of SS14) which we couldn't get right so we were losing some time with the hybrid system."
