"We've got a gearbox problem - we're stuck in third gear. Hopefully we can fix it before the next stage, but we dropped loads of time."
"Very enjoyable first stage. There were a few small hiccups, but I'm quite happy, and the car felt great. The feeling is okay and it's a good pace to start."
"We had a good start, but it was really tricky on the top with some wet and icy parts. I didn't want to make a mistake on the ice, so I was a bit too careful there. It feels really good - a lot of power and the feeling with this car is great."
"I can't hear him! It's too loud from everything else. It's very annoying and I couldn't hear him in many places - I had to brake and go again so I lost the rhythm."
"It was really difficult to drive because we had a lot of frost. It was difficult to know if the grip was there or not, so I was quite careful. It's not too bad."
"It felt really good, but in the second half I struggled to find a rhythm. Let's see what the two Sébs do - they look pretty quick!"
"Amazing! Everybody that’s been involved in this - you've done an amazing job! It was a very average stage from myself and I don't expect that I'll be very high in the standings because the other guys will be pushing as well."
"We have problems. I don't know..."
"It's quite tricky in the beginning, and we had a small spin at the start of the stage so we lost a bit of time. Anyway, losing a lot of time there. In the damp I was maybe a bit too careful in the conditions."
"It was difficult. I couldn't go fast and I lost the brakes and the tyres quite early in the stage. It's all a bit of a gamble because we only have 20 soft tyres for the weekend. We knew that today we would have to compromise, so hopefully it works out for the weekend."
"It was a really bad run. I didn't have a very good feeling at all."
"It didn't feel so great in that stage, but we are through. It's never easy - there was a lot of humidity and some frost in some places."
