Service Flash after SS 16

Service Quotes


Car #1 S.Ogier – J.Ingrassia (Toyota Yaris WRC): “I think today was the same as Friday. I lost a lot time on the first pass and the second pass was much better. The grip is so much better on the second pass. Maybe I don’t take enough risk on the first pass but it is my approach. But I am in battle for the podium. Tomorrow everyone will push hard tomorrow.”


Car #11 T.Neuville – M.Wydaeghe (Hyundai i20 Coupé WRC):  “"We can only be satisfied. We had a trouble-free day again and we made sure we stayed away form any trouble.

"We just had a little moment where I went straight-on at a junction and lost maybe a second or two, but apart from that everything was pretty much as planned.

"It feels good, but I am also conscious there is one more day to go. Different stages, different conditions and maybe some new settings.”


Car #33 E.Evans – S.Martin (Toyota Yaris WRC): “On one hand it is a bit frustrating and on the other hand you go through a 23km stage and lose next to nothing and lose 2-3 seconds on 7km stage.”


Car #69 K.Rovenperä – J.Halttunen (Toyota Yaris WRC) : “It was a tight battle and I am happy that we can be in the fight with the experience that I have. I was quite happy with the day. I can not remember a big moment, maybe some time on the grass.

“The gaps are so small that we are just going to drive and not really think about it.”


Car #8 O.Tänak – M.Järveoja (Hyundai i20 Coupé WRC): “We did new stages all day and to get through and get the knowledge is important. Normally it is all about winning and this time it is about knowledge.”
