Info
"You know yourself what happened. I know I shouldn't be doing all these mistakes, but it's really tough."
"It's still not easy to drive, but I found a clean line. We had a lot of rain at the end now and it was very slippery and easy to do a mistake."
"That's good! We said the plan was to push, but it's only the first one. It was drier than expected but the tyre wear should be alright."
"It's a left that opens and then the right after that comes very quickly. I think that's where Colin crashed a while back. For me, it was okay, but the tyres were shot at the end. The screen misted up and I couldn't see anything for the last 3km."
He's gone off the road on a right-hander 26.7km into the stage. It's the same corner which caught out Colin McRae in 2002!
"It's more changeable conditions. In the beginning it's okay, but at the end you still have mud and quite slippery sections."
Off road
"It's so, so difficult [to look after the tyres]. I don't know - let's see!"
"Everybody is managing their tyres in there. I tried to do a good job and hopefully I didn't go too hard on the tyres. It would be good to get some rain for the next stages because, if not, we could be struggling - it's quite abrasive in there."
"We are cleaning a line massively and it would be a miracle if we could beat the R5s on this one! It was hard on the tyres so we were really trying to manage through this one."
"It was difficult still. The line is not so wide after the small cars, so I need to open the line a bit and it's not easy. It was a bit more dry than I expected, so in the middle of the stage it was really slippery when it got drier."
