reversed in hairpin
"At the tight hairpin it was as if something had broken for a split-second. I came off the throttle and it spun completely around - it took me completely by surprise and I had to stop and reverse. I took it a bit easy then for the rest of the way up."

"I didn't have the best feeling. The tyres were moving quite early on, but other than that it was quite okay. It's been a pretty good weekend in terms of pace. Obviously the disappointment on Friday put us out of contention for the podium, but that's rallying and that's how it goes."
