flagCave Tom - Morgan James
"Pleased to finish on the podium. My first time here in an R5 car. I'm happy with that."
#36
flagGilbert Quentin - Jamoul Renaud
"Really really good weekend for us. A good result after a difficult season last year. I'm happy about this rally."
#40
flagHuttunen Jari - Linnaketo Antti
"Totally amazing. Someday I want to do the same as Esapekka."
#12
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"Amazing. What a rally. I have to say a bit thanks to team, they built such a fast car in a short time. Big respect to them. I have little experience, and I need to get more mileage. Okay, on my home soil I should have been strong here and I was."
#11
flagHänninen Juho - Lindström Kaj
"A small mistake on the start. We knew if would be difficult but okay, at the same time we have to be realistic - our first time on the podium!" / "Po startu jsem udělal menší chybu. Na druhou stranu je to naše první pódium!"
#3
flagEvans Elfyn - Barritt Daniel
"It's been a tough weekend. Friday was far from ideal. Back then we never thought we'd be here, but we kept pushing. Third here is really positive. We needed a good result. Finally the conditions came into our hands." / "Pátek měl daleko k ideálu. Nepolevili jsme a máme dobrý výsledek. Nakonec nám vyhovovaly podmínky."
#15
flagSuninen Teemu - Markkula Mikko
"Difficult to say anything. The rally was really good, the pace was good - better than any of us expected - and I was in second. Then two mistakes and now we are fourth. Now I feel disappointed but tomorrow the feeling will be better. On my second rally in this car I was fighting for a podium." / "Tempo jsme měli lepší, než se od nás čekalo a jel jsem druhý. Pak jsem udělal dvě chyby a jsme čtvrtí."
#9
flagBreen Craig - Martin Scott
"Last year was awesome here, I was on top of the world. Trying times. I have an amazing group of people around me, working their arses off. We just need more. A confidence sapping rally. We all worked so hard, but it all needs to come together." / "Loni to tady byla pohádka. Letos je ten výsledek málo. Všichni v týmu tvrdě pracovali, ale zatím to nestačí."
#2
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"I knew there was some cleaning to do for Jari-Matti so definitely I tried a bit. Not perfect [enough] for five points but hopefully something good." / "Věděl jsem, že JML bude čistit. Nejsem si jist, zda to bude stačit na 5 bodů, ale na pár snad ano."
#5
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"Yeah, I'm not sure if it will be enough to catch him, let's see what the other guys do. We were aiming to bring back more points to Seb. Even if the pace wasn't there this weekend, I have a great team behind me who are working to improve it."
#7
flagMeeke Kris - Nagle Paul
"I really struggled this weekend. You have to come here with bucket loads of confidence. That quickly unraveled for us. The next one is on tarmac and yeah, we have a bit of work to do." / "Tenhle víkend mně to nešlo. Když sem jedete, potřebujete si věřit. Teď nás čeká asfalt a my máme na čem pracovat."
#6
flagSordo Dani - Martí Marc
"I'm looking forward to Germany now. This rally was complicated for us and the team. Now we forget it and try to work on the set up for Germany and to have a victory there." / "Tahle soutěž pro nás byla komplikovaná a už se těším na Německo."
#14
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"It's been a good experience, one of the best rallies I've done this year. I really enjoyed having Torstein next to me. Okay, some bad luck here, and it shouldn't have happened, but I'm glad to be on pace. Now I'm looking forward to the next rally." / "Tohle byla asi nejlepší soutěž, co jsem letos zajel, chybělo trochu štěstí. Spolujezdec Torstein odvedl vynikající práci."
#8
flagAl-Qassimi Khalid - Patterson Chris
"A lot of experience for sure. The aim is the get three cars to the finish." / "pro nás hlavně zkušenost."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"One or two places could have been better but otherwise it was the best I could do - maximum, maximum, maximum!" / "Možná jedno dvě místa šlo projet lépe, ale jinak to byla totální podlaha."
#4
flagPaddon Hayden - Marshall Sebastian
"In a slow third-gear corner, the car just wouldn't turn. It sort of illustrates the problems we've had this weekend. In the future we'll probably look back on this year and laugh, everything that could go wrong is going wrong." / "Někdy v budoucnosti se při pohledu na tento rok asi zasmějeme, protože co se mohlo podělat, to se letos podělalo."
SS24
#3
flagEvans Elfyn - Barritt Daniel
"I was struggling with a lot of oversteer. I haven't had that all rally. A lot of loose gravel here." / "Auto mám hodně přetáčivé, což jsem neměl celou rally."
#12
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"We have to go, we have a problem." / "Musím jet, máme problém."
#15
flagSuninen Teemu - Markkula Mikko
"I tried. I spun. That's all." / "Zkusil jsem to a udělal hodiny, to je vše."
#11
flagHänninen Juho - Lindström Kaj
"Okay I have to be happy with that."
#5
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"This was okay. Just smooth and tidy. No plans to take risks on the Power Stage. If we can get any points for the championship this week it's more important." / "Na powerstage nechci riskovat, jakékoliv body do šampionátu jsou důležité."
#9
flagBreen Craig - Martin Scott
"Pretty much a drive through. Experimenting with the car as best we can. I wouldn't be confident to put for points on the Power Stage. I just need to get the car home."
#7
flagMeeke Kris - Nagle Paul
"One of the most difficult weekends I've had in a rally car. I just want to get through to the finish." / "Jeden z nejtěžších víkendů v rally pro mě. Chci už jen dojet do cíle."
#2
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"I got a bit more feeling here. A smooth run and I'm sure my tyres are okay."
#6
flagSordo Dani - Martí Marc
"We are looking forward to Germany and a new weekend on tarmac." / "Už se těšíme do Německa."
#14
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein

flagArai Hiroki - Macneall Glenn
Stopped in stage at 6.3km
#33
flagLoubet Pierre-Louis - Landais Vincent
"Very slippery and my drive was not great. It's like that."
#42
flagCave Tom - Morgan James
"Just driving these first two checking the notes."
#34
flagGreensmith Gus - Parry Craig
"They told me to go for four stage wins today. A bit too sideways but I would say I'm 100 per cent."
#36
flagGilbert Quentin - Jamoul Renaud
"Sunday is always a long day when you are second. No risks. Just drive in the middle of the road. Two stages to go."
#71
flagCamilli Eric - Veillas Benjamin
"I've rally enjoyed the rally this year. I like driving in these conditions and I'm really happy with the performance. It's not finished yet."
#40
flagHuttunen Jari - Linnaketo Antti
"We will see what happens."
#4
flagPaddon Hayden - Marshall Sebastian
"Out for a Sunday drive. We're trying to enjoy it and gather some information for next year."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"I have a fantastic feeling now in the car and the driving. Better than ever."
#12
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"It's okay. Quite slippery out there. Can't do anything stupid. It's going to be fine."
#15
flagSuninen Teemu - Markkula Mikko
"What have I changed? It's a secret. I can't say because we are in a tight fight."
#11
flagHänninen Juho - Lindström Kaj
"I lost it quite soon after the start, went wide on a left hander and hit a hay bale."
#3
flagEvans Elfyn - Barritt Daniel
"We're struggling as well. I went wide in two junctions. Exceptionally changeable grip and difficult to read."
#9
flagBreen Craig - Martin Scott
"I got caught out in a braking, it was fine until the last 5 - 10 metres. Two more stages to go. It's been a long rally."
#5
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"No grip at all. I changed some settings before the stage. Three junctions in one stage!"
#2
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"The grip is pretty poor but it's the same in all the stages in the morning loop. It should be okay for the Power Stage."
#7
flagMeeke Kris - Nagle Paul
"I've struggled for confidence all weekend. I just want to get through the day."
#6
flagSordo Dani - Martí Marc
"Unbelievable, really, really slippery. Very surprised."
#14
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"I don't know if there is something wrong with the car, or there's ice in the forest, but wow that was slippery. I had absolutely no grip!"
#8
flagAl-Qassimi Khalid - Patterson Chris
"I'm driving around the problem"
SS22

flagKatsuta Takamoto - Salminen Marko
WRC+ tracking shows him stopped in stage
#42
flagCave Tom - Morgan James
"A clean run. Neat and tidy for this first pass."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"It was the engine ECU. Never a problem before and there was nothing more we could do. It came from a supplier, so it's not a team problem, we have to trust that the parts we buy are okay. We have learned something though. The most important thing is that the car is good and I feel good in the driving. That's important for the future. We're here to attack at the Power Stage." / "Včera to byl problém s řídící jednotkou motoru. To je díl, který dostáváme od dodavatele. Ale auto je teď v pořádku a já se cítím dobře při jízdě, což je důležité při jízdě. Jsme tu kvůli
#34
flagGreensmith Gus - Parry Craig
"I'm going to give it my everything today."
#36
flagGilbert Quentin - Jamoul Renaud
"All good. I don't push. The last day. This was a good one for us."
#12
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"No issues. Nothing. Just trying to enjoy but it's difficult when you're not pushing flat out. You really need to be pushing to get the aero and everything working. Three to go..." / "Není to ono, když nejedete naplno, nedá se to užívat."
#15
flagSuninen Teemu - Markkula Mikko
"That was a bad morning for us. I was struggling with the grip all the time. I don't know. Need to find something for the next stage." / "Měl jsem celou dobu prblém s gripem."
#3
flagEvans Elfyn - Barritt Daniel
"I was struggling to see - the wipers froze on the screen. Very distracting. Everything else was working okay. Can I do it? Let's see." / "Měl jsem problém s výhledem, protože se stěrače zasekly."
#40
flagHuttunen Jari - Linnaketo Antti
"It's okay. Very, very easy start for me. Difficult to drive at 90 per cent, 100 is much easier."
#21
flagGorban Valeriy - Larens Sergey
WRC+ Live tracking shows him stopped in stage at 3km
#11
flagHänninen Juho - Lindström Kaj
"It was okay but quite tricky and slippery in the forest. I lost the rhythm a bit there."
#5
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"The car is sliding but I did a normal stage. Quite enjoyable but difficult in the shade under the trees - it was difficult to read the road. Power Stage could be important."
#9
flagBreen Craig - Martin Scott
"It looks like we can safeguard fifth."
#2
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"Very, very slippery. You need to take care of tyres and see what's possible on the Power Stage. No point to rush any more. The Finns are very strong here. Let's see what is possible."
#7
flagMeeke Kris - Nagle Paul
"Okay. What can I say? I tried. The grip was okay."
#6
flagSordo Dani - Martí Marc
"Very slippery."
#14
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"It was okay, a beautiful stage. A lovely way to start the day. Drivers who can place their cars on the correct part of the camber here will do well."
SS21
#11
flagHänninen Juho - Lindström Kaj
"The anti-roll bar is okay now but I took it a little too easy in the narrow section."
#12
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"I feel pretty good. Still disappointed for Jari-Matti but it wasn't my fault the car broke down so I need to enjoy this moment. It's something amazing. I need to concentrate and keep my head cool. In these cars, with the centre diff you have to drive it all the time - you can't back off. I need to keep a good speed all the time."
#15
flagSuninen Teemu - Markkula Mikko
"Okay. One small jump in here where I went a bit wide. Not a big issue. I got away with it. Now I just need to continue like this."
#9
flagBreen Craig - Martin Scott
"A relatively good stage for us. A couple of places where we could have been faster."
#7
flagMeeke Kris - Nagle Paul
puncture / defekt
#14
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"Let's say you cannot get any closer to properly going off. I jumped too far on the entry to a corner. I jumped out of the road. I was completely sure that was it - and then it wasn't. I was very lucky."
#3
flagEvans Elfyn - Barritt Daniel
"It's turned out exciting. Yesterday I never thought we'd be in this position. A podium is possible for sure. Let's wait and see."
#5
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"In the ruts the car is working better. What is possible now I don't know. In a rut here I hit something and bent the steering."
#2
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"Very difficult at the front in the second loop, there is a lot of loose gravel on the road."
#6
flagSordo Dani - Martí Marc
"The second pass was a bit better. It's incredible to drive a rally car here but it's difficult when you are not fighting for something."
#8
flagAl-Qassimi Khalid - Patterson Chris
"In the first section the car went wide and hit some stones. A big impact. I lost the brakes too."
SS20
#42
flagCave Tom - Morgan James
"Everything is going well. Not much to fight for and everything to lose. We're having fun."
#37
flagArai Hiroki - Macneall Glenn
"Maybe 3km into the stage we got a knock and the power was gone. We stopped and reset and then soon after we went off and got a puncture,"
#36
flagGilbert Quentin - Jamoul Renaud
"Some ruts and rocks so we had to be careful to avoid and protect our position."
#40
flagHuttunen Jari - Linnaketo Antti
"It was okay. A small mistake near the end but all okay."
#12
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"I have really mixed emotions," he says. "I have to say I've never been so disappointed when leading a rally, for Jari-Matti and the team, but it's part of the game. We still need to survive to the finish. It won't be easy to keep the rhythm without the pressure."
#15
flagSuninen Teemu - Markkula Mikko
"A good stage. No moments, no mistakes. Basically a clean run. Second place is cool, but I must keep focused on the driving. It's a tight fight."
#9
flagBreen Craig - Martin Scott
"Not so bad but the car is a small amount too low. The first time I've felt really confident with the grip."
#11
flagHänninen Juho - Lindström Kaj
"Yeah, we have a slight issue with the anti-roll bar at the front. The car feels nervous in the ruts. We go now and try and fix it."
#14
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"Nice stage. Quite rough conditions. I'm not so happy with the car, the balance is not right. Otherwise it was excellent in there."
#3
flagEvans Elfyn - Barritt Daniel
"Pretty okay. A big shame for Jari-Matti. He was doing an incredible job. I feel for him. Now we have to keep going and do the best we can."
#5
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"The car is working when there is a lot of grip. I backed off a bit after I hit a stone in the narrow section. I thought we had a puncture."
#7
flagMeeke Kris - Nagle Paul
"I didn't enjoy this at all. It didn't suit us. A lot of ruts."
#2
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"Quickest so far. A beautiful stage. A bit rough and more difficult for the tyres."
#6
flagSordo Dani - Martí Marc
"Now the road is dry, the car is working really well."
#8
flagAl-Qassimi Khalid - Patterson Chris
"The first part was quite rutted and rough, I liked it. I'm half satisfied with my day."
SS19
#42
flagCave Tom - Morgan James
"Managed to wind my co-driver over a jump in here but otherwise no problems."
#34
flagGreensmith Gus - Parry Craig
"It's good. Not bad for a first pass. I'll take that."
#37
flagArai Hiroki - Macneall Glenn
"The power problem is sorted out. The team did an incredible job in service. With full power this stage is so fantastic!"
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
WRC+ tracking shows him stopped at 11km! Electrical problem / problém s elektrikou, stojí
#12
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"Unfortunately yes, I saw the number on the rear window." So now you are the rally leader. "I did not want to be leading like this. It's a real shame. I mean this is not nice." / "Jo, všiml jsem si čísla na zadním okně. Nechtěl jsem se takhle dostat do vedení, to se mně nelíbí."
#15
flagSuninen Teemu - Markkula Mikko
"I am so sorry for Jari-Matti. He had done such a good job here." / "Je mně líto JML, jel neskutečně."
#11
flagHänninen Juho - Lindström Kaj
"I tried to be on the clean line and not slide too much. Let's see."
#14
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"My first proper run through and it wasn't the best. I didn't enjoy the stage, it's a shame. The jump was the only thing I could do."
#3
flagEvans Elfyn - Barritt Daniel
"The grip was higher in places and I could have gone quicker." / "Grip byl opravdu velký a mohl jsem jet rychleji."
#5
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"We made some changes but the road conditions are much more grippy now and the car is working better. In the slippery stages we can still lose time. I enjoyed this one, it's probably the best stage in the world." / "Grip je teď lepší a auto lépe funguje. Je to asi nejlepší zkouška na světě."
#7
flagMeeke Kris - Nagle Paul
"Not perfect but still an incredible piece of road." / "Furt je to neuvěřitelná cesta."
#2
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"I had a half spin. After that maybe not the perfect rhythm but a decent run." / "Udělal jsem tam polohodiny a pak neměl nejlepší rytmus."
#6
flagSordo Dani - Martí Marc
"This stage is unbelievable in these cars. A circuit in the forest. Incredible." / "Ta zkouška je prostě neuvěřitelná, cirkus v lese."
#8
flagAl-Qassimi Khalid - Patterson Chris
"There are places where I could go faster if I had more confidence in the reaction of the car."
SS18
#12
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"I was fast and the time is bad. I can't understand. I was fully on the limit and had no moments. That's why I am surprised the is so bad."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"A good start to the afternoon. An almost perfect stage. Just one corner I could do better."
#15
flagSuninen Teemu - Markkula Mikko
"An okay stage. Still I could find a few tenths but it's difficult to go faster." Can you get third place back? "If I continue like this and try to avoid mistakes it should be fine."
#9
flagBreen Craig - Martin Scott
"It's taken me a while to get my head around it but the grip level feels better now."
#11
flagHänninen Juho - Lindström Kaj
"Nothing special. Nice conditions. Really good."
#14
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"That was okay. The cars works well again. The brakes are fine."
#3
flagEvans Elfyn - Barritt Daniel
"Not perfect. The car snapped round a couple of times."
#5
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"Much more grip on the stage so the car was working quite nicely, more driveable."
#7
flagMeeke Kris - Nagle Paul
"This is only a short stage. We'll continue and see what happens."
#2
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"All okay. Very short stage. No issues. Clean run."
#6
flagSordo Dani - Martí Marc
"We know the stage a bit more. Slippery in some places."
#8
flagAl-Qassimi Khalid - Patterson Chris
"You can see lines on the road for sure, but they're not from the WRC cars."
SS17
#36
flagGilbert Quentin - Jamoul Renaud
"Pleased with that. We are second and it is not necessary to push too hard."
#37
flagArai Hiroki - Macneall Glenn
"The engine problem is getting worse - no power. More than just the pop-off valve."
#34
flagGreensmith Gus - Parry Craig
"There is something wrong with the car. It's crabbing and snaps around on left-hand corners. I've just been driving through the stages this morning. Let's see if we can get it sorted in service."
#42
flagCave Tom - Morgan James
"Everything has gone well today. Nice and tidy and clean."
#12
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"I don't need to do anything, the car is good enough for the second loop. I really don't know how to fight with him [Latvala]. He's doing a really good job but the fight is not over for sure." / "Opravdu nevím, jak s ním bojovat."
#14
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"I have front brakes only. Not so easy to drive. You do need brakes in Finland - even if it doesn't always look that way." / "Mám jen přední brzdy a s tím se jde blbě. A i když se to nezdá, i ve Finsku jsou brzdy potřeba."
#3
flagEvans Elfyn - Barritt Daniel
"Definitely a big step forward from yesterday. Not a lot on the car has changed, the conditions today have played into our hands." / "Oproti včerejšku velký rozdíl. Na autě jsme toho moc nezměnili, ale dnešní podmínky nám více vyhovují."
SS16
#39
flagNordgren Juuso - Korhonen Mikael
double puncture / dvojitý defekt
#34
flagGreensmith Gus - Parry Craig
"Horrible. The car is crabbing for some reason. To drive this stage with a car that's trying to kill you is horrible." / "Jet tuhle zkoušku s autem, které se vás snaží zabít, je peklo."
#40
flagHuttunen Jari - Linnaketo Antti
"I don't really like this stage. Too many jumps." / "Tuhle zkoušku nemám rád, je tam moc skoků."
#12
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"Really enjoyable but my time is not good enough. I know I lost some in the last junction, otherwise a pretty clean run. Not even close. I don't care if Jari-Matti has won this rally once or three times, I want to be faster. If I push more I will not stay on the road. I don't know where he is making the time." / "Vím, že jsem nějaký čas nechal na posledním odbočení, ale jinak nevím, kde bere ten čas. Pokud pojedu rychleji, nezůstanu na trati."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"We had a very good run. There were a few places where I could improve but I pushed at the end. A fantastic feeling. You can't get this feeling anywhere else!" / "Takový pocit nejde jinde zažít."
#15
flagSuninen Teemu - Markkula Mikko
"I missed a chicane, I needed to turn around. Lost maybe 20 seconds. Not a good run." / "Minul jsem retardér a musel se vracet, nechal jsem tam tak 20 vteřin."
#9
flagBreen Craig - Martin Scott
"So hard to commit to the notes." / "Hrozně těžké je věřit rozpisu."
#14
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"I went off the road, not so bad, but wide into a ditch. I crashed, destroyed the left rear suspension. Something is bent, the brake is broken. Not a good feeling to do the rest of the stage without the brakes." / "Byl jsem venku v příkopu a poškodil zadní zavěšení. Poškozené brzdy, takže jsme zbytek jeli bez nich."
#11
flagHänninen Juho - Lindström Kaj
"A tricky bastard that one! A couple of times a bit wide."
#3
flagEvans Elfyn - Barritt Daniel
"Just incredible." / "Jednoduše úžasné."
#5
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I can't drive like this. I am driving fast but I am on the maximum. The car is hitting the bump stops, bouncing back after the jumps. It makes it really difficult. Our car is working on all other the rallies, which is nice, but not Finland." / "Takhle nejde jet. Naše auto funguje jinde, ale ne ve Finsku."
#7
flagMeeke Kris - Nagle Paul
"I know this stage very well but I couldn't drive the car here. It was like a rear-wheel-drive. Opposite lock to opposite lock." / "Tuhle zkoušku znám dobře, ale s tímhle autem tu nemohu bojovat, pocitově to je jako zadokolka."
#2
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"A fantastic stage but I'm maybe not 100 per cent confident. I tried to enjoy as much as possible." / "Zkouška fantastická, ale nevěřil jsem si na 100%."
SS15
#12
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"I don't know, it was a clean stage for me but it seems I was not pushing enough. Jari-Matti was doing well, I can't fight with him now. This is quite a decent speed. I haven't had any moments. I don't know if it's wise to try and push." / "Asi jsem nejel úplně naplno. S JML teď nemohu bojovat. Nevím, zda by byl dobrý nápad jet naplno."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"This stage was difficult - the mud in the beginning made grip very difficult, the end was better. I love the character of this stage!" / "Začátek byl těžký a bahnitý, konec lepší. Ale jinak tyhle zkoušky miluji."
#4
flagPaddon Hayden - Marshall Sebastian
Enjoying the morning stages but unfortunately couldn’t avoid a rock the size of a football in middle of the road… broken suspension again / Bohužel jsme trefili kámen velikosti fotbalové míče uprostřed trati a znovu prasklo zavěšení...
#9
flagBreen Craig - Martin Scott
"It shouldn't have done that. I've completely lost the confidence at the rear." / "Po několika přetočeních jsem si přestal věřit."
#11
flagHänninen Juho - Lindström Kaj
"No issues. Just trying to find the perfect rhythm." / "Jen hledám ten nejlepší rytmus."
#14
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"Not so nice, the car is oversteering a lot. I can't get the grip at the rear, power sliding on the throttle everywhere. I was annoyed." / "Auto se mně hodně přetáčí, chybí mně grip na zadku."
#3
flagEvans Elfyn - Barritt Daniel
"I struggled on the small road but the pace on the good road went well. I've always liked this stage." / "Na těch úzkých místech to nebylo ono, na širokých ano. Tyhle zkoušky miluji."
#5
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I was not driving very well in here. The car is moving around, hitting the bump stops on landings. I need to stiffen the set-up" / "Tady jsem nejel moc dobře."
#7
flagMeeke Kris - Nagle Paul
"We still have a little issue with the steering." / "Stále máme menší problémy s řízením."
#2
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"The previous stage had good grip, but this one was slippery. It's changing. The wipers were okay here." / "Na té předchozí byl dobrý grip, tady to klouzalo. Stěrače tentokrát fungovaly."
#6
flagSordo Dani - Martí Marc
