"Quite okay. I don't really enjoy these stages a lot - I don't like the characteristics of the stage but I tried my best. The soft tyre is moving quite a lot so I just tried to find the right pace to look after the tyre."

"Pretty okay. At the beginning I didn't have so much grip - I think there was salt on the road or something. The rest of it was quite okay."

"It was the first real braking section of the stage. I had less grip than I expected and I just ran a bit wide. It was quite a tricky loop and I think the tyre choice was not perfect."

"It's much easier than the first pass. The line is much cleaner from the salt but for some reason I feel that in this stage it's a bit tricky with the grip in the last section. I was sliding a lot."

"I am not fully happy. I did this stage last year and I was not on the pace, so for sure it was not easy now to step up. It's going to be a long day for the tyres as well. I just tried to keep a good and safe pace."

"It's definitely a big difference when the road is clean from the salt. I think earlier in the rally we were losing a lot more time with cleaning the road. Now it's a lot more fun."
