"It's quite tricky with the braking. I couldn't restart the car under braking and we went straight towards the bank. That's how it is on the ice when you lock the wheels."

"Pretty okay. For sure, I can improve quite a lot but it was quite slippery to be honest. Not an easy stage at all, but quite a clean one."

"It's such small margins that if I step up, it may be too much. I need to continue like this but maybe try a little harder."

"Slippy, very slippy! For sure, it should get better, ubt it's very messy all around. The lines are going straight to the banks, I am using the banks, and sometimes the exit is really poor because of that."

"Tricky! It's quite a big contrast from the first pass, but this is Sweden. The second pass is always tricky on this kind of stage when you have a soft surface. No mistakes, we are here."

"I overshot a junction, just couldn't stop the car. It's quite slippery and understeering all the time. I am not really feeling good."

"I think I enjoyed the morning more than the afternon. It's quite demanding for the tyres in this one, especially. I need to think a bit overnight about what to do for tomorrow."

"It's not been too bad in the end, but I feel there is much more to come if we can make all things close to perfect. We need to think overnight and try to be better tomorrow. I think in this position you shouldn't do any big changes, but we will definitely try something."

"We had a small vibration on the straight before and I thought there was ice or something on the tyre, then it disappeared. It seems the tyre delaminated and I approached the final corner but I had no grip. It's never happened before."

"I was just too early on the brakes in many places. I think the corners I did pretty well, but the brakings are always pretty challenging for me. The other guys can be faster."
