"I got caught out on a bump after the jump. I'm a lucky, lucky boy. That's one way to finish the rally but we didn't need that..."
"It's been a strong performance. We did what we could, we have to be happy with that. It has been an important result."
"I can only say I'm happy for the whole team, they kept pushing me. Thanks to them for sorting the car so quickly after the first day. I'm happy to be here."
"A bit of drama early on cost us the chance of a podium. After that the car felt better and I really enjoyed it. We will keep going and I'm sure we will be on the top soon."
"We've had technical issues which have meant we couldn't do much today. The bad luck continues..."
"Our engine guy has done a good job with the software here - the car felt the best it has all weekend. I pushed hard. Let's see if it is good enough for Power Stage points - we have to remember every single point counts at the end of the year."
"A lot of problems during the weekend. Some unbelievable weather, some bad luck here too - we had problems with the windscreen wipers on the first stage today."
"Overall we have to be pretty happy. Valuable mileage. Here we tried to be neat and tidy, but quite a bit of oversteer. We tried."
"The rally didn't start in the best way but we learned a lot. A bit unlucky in places, and not the best way to get used to this car, but my times have improved."
For sure being unwell didn't make it any easier. Before and after the stages the feeling hasn't been that good - but on the stages it was okay. It has been a tough weekend."
"Not a bad result. I would like to test the car before the next events but a perfect debut result for the championship."
"A good weekend."
"A great battle and a great rally. Everything has worked well today. Perfect. A great start to the season."
"It was difficult this morning. We didn't recce these stages and I had a wet set-up which wasn't correct. I'm a bit sad. I'm happy to be second but we wanted to win. A good progression though - we are happy about the speed."
