"Already the road is getting quite dirty and I went straight on in the braking, so I had to turn around. There was zero, zero grip."

"We had a clean stage but on a junction we were a bit sideways. I am fighting with the car at the moment and compared to last year it's not enjoyable. I have a lot of diff openings and the wheels are locking under braking - you can not judge where to brake."

"It's been a whole different afternoon in terms of the handling with the car. I am much happier now. I feel like I have seen some areas where we can improve and get a bit more speed, but with this afternoon we can be very happy. Our weather team has done an amazing job with some very precise information and I have felt confident to trust their predictions. That's very important on a day like this."

"I am not really sure if Ott has problems. I think if Ott has problems then I have only three cylinders! Of course, we want to fight for victory and I had to give it a go. We are getting a bit better with the car but I feel like there is some more in it - we just need to find it."

"It was like the first pass for me obviously, so I was discovering the stage. I felt I was a bit cautious but our gravel crew told us it was very dirty. Now we know more or less where we have to be careful on the suspension side. There is still a bit of room for improvement but we will stay like this - it's fine."

"Unfortunately I had some transmission issue - the gears were jumping from second to fourth and I had to downshift many times. It was good to see the speed was there and the car was somehow working quite okay. Not where we want to be, but it's going in the right direction and that's positive. Unfortunately we couldn't get the result we wanted but we had some fun for the spectators."
