"It was okay. Very dry conditions but very slippery at the end with the salt. A clean start for us. Anybody who says the nerves are not there either has a problem or is lying!"

"It's a good start. Not easy - there was almost nothing apart one corner with some black ice. At least for once we are not first on the road and we can use it to our advantage."

"It's huge. I love this rally, it's the one which gave me the dream right at the beginning and I am so happy for Vincent: for me it's nice, but for him it's a dream to take his first win. We still need to enjoy these moments and that's why we are still here [in the WRC], to catch some victories like this. To win a famous one like Monte has no price."
