"All good. There are many corners which I don't remember and I feel stupid when I arrive on the apex. I should have been much faster. I know how to improve the times quite quickly, but especially in the dark it's not easy to memorise the stage. I am quite satisfied with the start."

"There was some ice and I didn't know where it was. I was driving at walking speed throughout this section. I am not really happy at the moment but when the grip is fine I can push, it's not a problem."

"It's been the same challenges as yesterday. I am a bit too slow everywhere to be honest. We made a big step with the car's suspension and I think we moved in a better direction on this stage, but still I want to make it even better."

"It's been very challenging to really figure out what I should do differently to make better times. This stage seems to be better for me in general, but on all the other stages we are losing even more. I need to think again during the night about what we can do with the engineers. Tomorrow is a new day."

"I think we should have stiffened the car for this stage. It's high grip with a lot of small bumps here and there - at least we know for the next loop. Everything is good, so much better than yesterday."

"I took it too carefully. It was not as bad as we thought after recce, but let's see how the time is. We made some changes again but maybe we went too far now. At least we found the limits."
