"That's good, but it was not a perfect stage. It's difficult to kick-off at night in such difficult conditions, but generally I was smooth and had a good feeling. I am looking forward to the next one."

"I don't know what happened to be honest. There was zero grip and I was not the first one to go wide there for sure. I could see the lines but I was already too late. I lost probably seven or eight seconds because the car stalled."

"I was struggling a bit with the turn in and the movement of the car. I took it easy in the fast section because I didn't want to get any surprises, but other than that it was a clean run."

"We still have a bit of work left, however I felt a bit more comfortabe in this one. It's a bit more technical but as soon as it's fast and bumpy the car is a bit nervous. We could go faster but the risk would be too high at the moment."

"It was not very fun to be honest. The tyres are really on the edge and they overheated after 2km of the stage. I am just trying to follow the road and manage the braking points but it's not so much fun."

"It was a bit dirty and I was less quick than I expected to be. I had a couple of small sides. We did some set-up changes overnight and it takes time to get used to it. I lost some time but at the end it was feeling better."

"We had a good stage but we had a huge jump and I feel a bit of back pain. We are here and we took a bit of time from Elfyn so it's not too bad. We were a bit on the limit and over the limit a few times."

"I gave it everything in there but we had so much tyre wear compared to the other all weekend and we are missing speed. Even if we are taking risks at some points, we can't match the others. We had to be sensible this weekend - we kept the car on the road and brought it back. Now we're looking forward to Sweden."
