Car #74 S. Chardonnet / T. De La Haye: It was very slippery. The tyres were very cold at the beginning. But that's good.

Car #36 K. Kruuda / M. Jarveoja: The atmosphere is fantastic. It was very tricky. We had a little delay but I don't think it had affected anything.

Car #40 N. Al-Attiyah / G. Bernacchini: A short stage, people were fantastic. We must be very clever here tomorrow.

Car #41 N. Fuchs / F. Mussano: It was very narrow, a lot of concrete but I am very happy. I made a mistake in a corner then I pushed hard. This rally is very rough, things will go serious on Friday.

Car #12 K. Al Qassimi / C. Patterson: Everything was happening so fast today. It was not an easy one and it was easy to make mistakes. Tomorrow will be important not to do mistakes and think well about strategy.

Car #4 M. Ostberg / J. Andersson: Very very tricky stage, but very funny and incredible. It is so unbeliavable so many people are here. Here podium is a possibility. We need to be careful and not to retire. Yes, we have to take it carefully.

Car #2 J.-M. Latvala / M. Anttila: I am trying to get the feeling I had in Argentina. We had no problems here, but now it is only the first day. It will be very demanding. I think tomorrow we will see how the things are going on.
