flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I can't ask for more today after getting my second win in this classic event and second in a row this season. The car has been great all weekend long. That is due to a big team effort done not only on-site, but also in Germany. The progress of the car is seen, so I am proud of what are reaching. This makes us happy for the coming events, despite knowing that there will be some tough ones when we return to Europe. In the meantime, we all go to Chile which is a place to discover."

flagMikkelsen Andreas - Jæger Anders
"This is an absolutely great result for me. It took a long time, but I am so happy now that this feels alsmost like a win." / "Pro nás skvělý výsledek, po více než roce jsme zase na stupních vítězů."

flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"I had the most unexpected puncture 6 km from the finish. What else could I do?" / "Co mám dělat, když jsem poslední kilometry dojížděl na prázdné pneu?"

flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"I did everything I could. I could not match Meeke's speed this weekend, so I kept doing me best until the Power Stage," / "Dal jsem do toho vše. Na Meeka jsem o víkendu ale neměl."

flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"It's time to go up now. We don't give up." / "Je čas se po nepovedeném začátku sezóny zase zvednout."

flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"It was a difficult rally al the way. Being first on the road didn't really help. Shame of a weekend, I'd say." / "Byla to těžká soutěž a dnes jsem z prvního místa už moc dělat nemohl."
45
flagHeller Pedro - Martí Marc
"This is one of the worst things that ever happened to me. A scary moment jwith the finish at nearly at sight distance!. The car stopped with all red alarms and it would go on. Some fans pushed me and it came back to life, so I was lucky to win WRC 2!" / "To bylo snad to nejhorší, co mě v životě potkalo. Kilometr před koncem se auto zastavilo a rozsvítily se všechny alarmy. Po restartu jsme to dojeli na přejezdový režim."
41
flagGuerra jr. Benito - Zapata Ortega Jaime
"This stage is amazing, for sure. And so it is the number of spectators supporting us! I had gearbox problems, so I couldn't select every shift. The most important things is the points I scored take me to the championship lead." / "Ta zkouška je skvělá a diváci nás podporují. Měl jsme problémy s převodovkou, nešlo řadit všechny převody."
22
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"We learnt a lot about the car on gravel here. It was a long and hard event. We take some important dat home and we still have Chile in two more weeks to go for more." / "Hodně jsme se tady naučili o autu, byla to dlouhá a těžké soutěž. Uvidíme v Chile."

flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"I had trouble with the steering, which locked on the stage again. Not a bad run, though. There is more work to do." / "Měl jsem problémy s řízením."
1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"I couldn't do any quicker than this. My stage was almost perfect, but to get a better time, I'd need some more speed in my car." / "Nejde jet rychleji, zajel jsem dobře, ale potřeboval bych více rychlosti od auta."
6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"I tried to get some clean lines, but it was impossible. And Latvala is being the fastest guy here until now." / "Snažil jsem se jet čistou stopu, ale moc to nešlo, Latvala je dnes opravdu rychlý."

flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"I gave everything I had in this stage. I am tired, as a matter of fact!" / "Do téhle zkoušky jsem dal všechno."

flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"Same as yesterday. It seems I can't get rid of the intercom problems in this rally." / "Neustále máme problémy s interkomem."
8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"Both stages so far have been similar for me. Times are not bad. I might put a harder attack on the Power Stage to get more points, but the rod there is not exactly easy" / "Časy dnes nejsou špatné, na PS chci zkusit zabrat, ale nebude to jednoduché."

SS16

22
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"We lost the intercom again, so I was driving without the pace notes in a few places. At least we made it through the stage" / "Opět nám blbne interkom, takže jsem několikrát neslyšel rozpis."
10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
“I couldn’t enjoy it so much. I haven’t done this stage this way before. And there was fog in other times, so this is the first time I saw it properly. I need to make some changes in my notes” / "Nikdy jsem nejel tuhle zkoušku tímto směrem. A na seznamovačkách tu byla mlha, takže poprvé ji vidím až teď. Musím udělat změny v rozpisu."
11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I take it very carefully as it's very rough. We tried to keep a good rhythm and we will continue like this." / "Je to rozbité, jedeme na pohodu a chceme takto pokračovat."

flagMikkelsen Andreas - Jæger Anders
“Clean stage, we have more pace to come if we need. Happy enough!” / "Kdyby bylo třeba, můžeme ještě přidat."

"Work is not done yet, we almost caught him here. Hopefully I can do that in the remaining stages" / "Už jsme sice skoro dojeli Ogiera, ale ještě není hotovo, snad na dalších zkouškách."

flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"I thought I was losing against everybody because I get no traction from the car and it does't feel nice. I am struggling with that" / "Myslím, že ztrácím na všechny, chybí nám úplně trakce."

flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"There are many slippery sections here this morning. I get no grip at all" / "Je to hodně kluzké, chybí nám grip."

flagGreensmith Gus - Edmondson Elliott
"I really enjoy these stages, which are my favourites. I didn't have a good time here during the morning but the configuration changes made to the Fiesta make me feel much better, so I could enjot the drive this time"
11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I was steady on the beginning because there were several rocks and the last thing we needed was a puncture. Towards the end, I got more confident and pushed harder" / "Ze začátku jsem si hlídal kameny, abych se vyhl defektu, ke konci jsem přitlačil."
1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"I could push a lot harder now because the steering problem is not a problem anymore and that makes quite a difference. I still think there might be result changes later because somebody has not respected the road book here earlier" / "Stále čekám, že se budou měnit výsledky, protože ráno někdo nejel podle roadbooku."
89
flagMikkelsen Andreas - Jæger Anders
"The afternoon is goig very well for me. The oil leak is gone and I am happy with what we are achieving" / "Odpoledne se nám daří. Podařilo se i zastavit únik oleje."
6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"It would be nice to fight for a podium finish, but right now I fight to be faster and faster everyday. The change the team made to the rear suspension seems to be working fine because now the car does not feel so unstable" / "Bylo by hezké jet o pódium, ale zatím je naším cílem se zlepšovat. Nastavení zadku je teď lepší."
10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"No problems here. Crossing a waterspalsh, just a little water came into the engine, but it was not a serious misfire" / "Po průjezdu brodem nám chvilku vynechával motor."

SS14

22
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"Conditions are better, the surface is not so bad, drier, and that is why I was able to be faster now than some hours ago"
11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I had a good stage, trying to be careful with the banks to avoid making a mistake. I saw a Toyota standing on the inside of a corner, but I didn't know it was Tänak's" / "Viděl jsem odstavenou Toyotu, ale nevěděl jsem, že je to Tänak."

flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
" "I am pleased to keep an interesting pace"" / "Jedeme docela dobře."
6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"The car is moving a lot in the rear. I am doing my best to go fast, but the car won't let me because there must be some serious set-up problem in the rear" / "Auto má hodně neklidný zadek."
10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"The difference is that now the surface is completely dry or so. There are some ruts in this second pass through the stages, so it is not possible to be completely aggressive. I have good side grip and I am braking better" / "Rozdíl je v tom, že teď je kompletně sucho. "

SS11

11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I was always flat out here because our setup is good. Ott is being very fast and we know that is hard to fight with him when he starts pushing. We still are, anyway, because the rally is still long" / "Jedu naplno, ale Ott je tady rychlý a víme, že když začne tlačit, těžko se s ním bojuje."

flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"It is really difficult to drive without the power steering. I found a gate in a junction I thought it was different to my recce and made a stupid mistake by hesitating there. I lost valuable time" / "Dojel jsem bez posilovače. V jednom místě se projíždělo bránou, ale při seznamovačkách jsme to napsali jinak, nakonec jsem tu bránu trefil a poškodil posilovač."

"These stages are super nice. I touoched the inside of a corner with plenty of water. Other than that, everything is much better than yesterday" / "Tyhle zkoušky jsou nádherné. Před nájezdem do brodu jsem trefil kámen. Jinak je to lepší než včera."
6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"These stages are quite a change compared to what we left behind yesterday. However, it is a tricky morning becaise the surface is dying up quickly. I lost time at the end, but I am pleased with the car" / "Tyhle zkoušky jsou úplně jiné než včera. Dnes je to zrádné, rychle to vysychá. Jsem spokojen s autem."
10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"That was more or less 5 km before the end after hitting a rock, so I must have lost not more than a couple of seconds, luckily" / "Asi 5 km před cílem jsem trefil kámen a udělal pomalý defekt, ale ztratil jsem tím jen pár vteřin."

SS10

11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I am giving my best, but it seems these roads are made for the Toyotas. They are more aerodynamic and get more speed in places like this" / "Tyhle zkoušky jsou dobré pro Toyoty, mají více aerodynamických prvků a jsou tak rychlejší."
1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"It looks it is difficult to match the speed of the Toyotas. I am trying, though" / "Dělám, co mohu, ale Toyotám nestíhám."
8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"This is a narrow road and conditions are tricky. I am fine with my times even though I'd say I am not pushing to the limit yet" / "S časem jsem spokojen, nejedu ale na limitu."
5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"To be honest, I enjoyed yesterday's stages a little more. Here I found it tough to get good grip, but there is no doubt I can't complain about my pace" / "Upřímně jsem si více užíval ty včerejší zkoušky, Tady se těžko hledá grip, ale nemohu si stěžovat."
89
flagMikkelsen Andreas - Jæger Anders
"I did some mistakes in the beggining even if I was on the careful side, anyway. It shoud get better for me later" / "Na začátku jsem udělal pár chyb a pak jel raději opatrně."
10

"Beautiful stage that I enjoyed driving. There were some slippery places, but not so bad" / "Krásná zkouška, to jsem si užíval. Je tam několik kluzkých míst."

flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"This is a nice place, but we mustn't forget there are large rocks out of the road, so I tried to be precise in my lines" / "Krásná zkouška, ale nesmím zapomínat, že okolo jsou skály, takže jsem si hlídal stopu."

11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"Definitely the surface in this second run here was rougher. To be first on the road is not the best, but considering this I guess my time was fine" / "V druhých průjezdech je to o hodně rozbitější. Jet první není nejlepší, ale i tak jsem spokojen."

22
flagØstberg Mads - Eriksen Torstein
"About 11 km before the end i felt something strange in the car and it was obviously this puncture. Fortunately, I didn't lose so much time"
89
flagMikkelsen Andreas - Jæger Anders
"I did everything I could, but I was feeling the front left tyre had a very low pressure, so I sturggled with this for most of the course" / "Dělal jsem, co šlo, ale v levé přední pneu jsme měli nízký tlak a trochu jsem s tím bojoval."
3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"I was being careful because I still find it tough to spot where the slippery mud is" / "Jel jsem opatrně, stále mám problém poznat, kde je bahno a kde ne."
10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"I am disappointed because I was not driving well. I was being too cautious, perhaps because I had more than just one puncture earlier and I couldn't afford one more" / "Jsem zklamaný, nejel jsem dobře, asi proto, že jsem měl předtím defekt a nemohl si dovolit další."
6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"Tänak was really flying. I think there is more grip for the front-runners. This stage was so nice, but unfortunately I guess I lost pressure in my tyres. There must be just one OK and for the other three I don't know what might have happened" / "Tänak opravdu letí. Myslím, že ti na začátku měli víc trakce."
5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"The road was so cut up it looked like a second pass to it. I've got no traction and I have no asnwer to the times of the guys in front" / "Zkouška je tak rozbitá, že to vypadá jak druhé průjezdy. Neměl jsem trakci a k časům těm přede mnou nemám co číct."
33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"i didnt feel so bad, but it seems we lost valuable time here. The stage is a mix between fast bends and narrow, twisty places" / "Necítil jsem se špatně, ale ztratili jsme docela dost."
8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"It was a normal stage for me, but we crossed a huge watersplash flat out and I think some water came into the engine, so I lost power for a while. I am doing my best this afternoon" / "V brodu jsme nasáli nějakou vodu a motor po nějaký čas ztratil výkon."

11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"This stage was really fine for us. it was quite helpful to watch videos last night trying to spot where to find less mud in order to push harder" / "Myslím, že tahle zkouška se nám povedla. Bylo užitečné ji včera večer projít videa a označit si místa, kde bude bahno a kde se dá jet naplno."
