"It's great to finish this first edition of Rally Chile like this. It's been there very demanding days which required plenty of concentration and energy. I am happy for myself and particularly for the guys at Toyota Gazoo Racing. We lost the lead in two events before, so it was out time to win now."

flag Ogier Sébastien
- Ingrassia J.
"I am surprised that my time here was not so bad because the extinguisher went off and the smell in the cockpit was so bad I almost went unconscious. It's a good second place in Chile after an interesting battle with Loeb"

"Congratulations to Hyundai Motorsport for making a very good job. We had a solid pace and the last two days were particularly satisfying. I am happy to see I am among the front-runners again."

"It's a good result for us with two good final positions for Elfyn and me. We were able to catch some nice points. M-Sport did a good work here."

"I didn't have enough steering angle, so I spun. The gear lever was very hard when I tried to select first speed again. At least my split times in this Power Stage were good until that happened."

flag Mikkelsen Andreas
- Jæger Anders
"This was disappointing after our good wrork the other side of the Andes. I think my biggest mistake was to make very agressive notes during the recce. We saw that was not OK in Leg 1 and after that we lost confidence. There were other drivers crashing and we didnt want that for us."
