"Before the rally it was looking tough. Yesterday night it was looking quite bad and then we managed to do it. Definitely one of my hardest victories ever - we had to fight and we had a lot of problems. I had to heat the brakes just before the finish line to make sure Seb opens the road in Sardegna!"
"I had put a hard tyre on the stage but we were waiting too long at the start. Coming here after our huge crash in Chile and having such a good feeling in the car is great."
"Okay - this is kind of bad news because I wasn't planning on opening the road in Sardegna."
"The pace was really good on Friday. In the end, quite a good result and maybe some points from the power stage."
"It's been a tough weekend. The most important thing is that the car was fast and we had the speed. I hope I will get a fair time for the power stage."
"It was nice - I tried to push and I tried to enjoy. It will be difficult to do a really good time because the stage is cleaning all of the time."
"Big thanks to the team - everything has been going well and they have worked really hard to get the car finished."

"It means a lot to the team. They did a really great job because the rally was so rough. Thanks to them for the car and we are already looking forward to Sardegna."
"I had some bad noise in my front suspension after my first pass here. We are through now and I am happy with the way we have improved over the weekend. We do have some big challenges to overcome if we want to fight on the rougher rallies like this one. The first thing we need to solve is the rims; we need new rims."
