"Everything is going well, but maybe I went a bit too hard on the tyres early on."
"He's pushing for sure. For me it was a good stage. There's not much more to say. I want to finish this rally with no damage. Let's see..."
"I lost a tyre at shakedown with a puncture so had to manage my allocation. Okay, lets see for the next stages but I will have more tread with these tyres."
"I did everything I could. A really clean drive, pretty much on the limit."
"If it's true, then thanks to the organisers. A 10 minute penalty was not fair."
"The car was sliding quite a lot. The time is not so bad. Okay, the hard tyre would have been better here my choice is a compromise for the whole loop."
" I got some medication in service and the feeling is a bit better now."
"There are a lot of different choices for tyres here, and probably no perfect solution. We have two hards and three softs, and the softs should better suit the next stages."
"The car is okay now, getting better and I'm understanding more about it. A small issue with dust, but it's okay."
"We tried to collect data, that is the most important thing. A little bit of experimenting too - especially how to save the tyres."
"A lot better than earlier. It's a strange loop, and I thought this one would be hardest on the tyres. A little bit of tyre management here but it wasn't too bad."
Media Luna, 27.42km. A mix of familiar roads from several stages moulded into a new test. The opening 6km are very fast and open, with several washaways and some big corners for the brave. After 12km it becomes narrower and more technical with a couple more washaways leading into a long flat-out straight. It ends with a series of fast twists and turns.
