"I don't really know. Like [Neuville] said before that probably I don't have an issue. It's a shame what happened, but I think inside the team we shouldn't fight with each other - we should be fighting the others. I don't know what he was thinking."

"To win here is a big surprise for us - more or less the same like it was in Finland. We didn't expect it from anywhere basically, but somehow we were able to pull it together during the rally. It's great to see some results are coming but there is so much we can improve and we could still be a lot stronger, so there is still some work to do."
