Car #3 K. Meeke / P. Nagle: "First on the road, quite tricky. Here traction is everything, good experience for me to be honest. We have to learn what we can today."

Car #7 T. Neuville / N. Gilsoul: "Quite OK stage, not big push but clever run. I have to learn in these conditions as well".

Car #22 J. Melicharek / E. Melicharek: "Very slippery and narrow, tough stage but quite good fun".

Car #12 - K. Al Qassimi / C. Patterson: "Big fight, I lost a bit but we have a long stage coming up".

Car #20 H. Paddon / J. Kennar: "A tricky first stage".

Car #16 - H. Solberg / L. Minor: "I did not find the performance in this stage, I will try to find it in the next one. Everything fine with the car".

Car #21 - M. Prokop / J. Tomanek: "Not enough, let's see how it is in the long one. It can be better".

Car #6 - E. Evans / D. Barritt: "Tricky first stage, but we improved the car".

Car #10 - R. Kubica / M. Szczepaniak: "It has been an OK first stage. We are driving smoothly and careful, no risks. In the second loop we will try to be faster".

Car #9 - A. Mikkelsen / O. Floene: "Well, we are driving our own pace. We are not taking any risks".

Car #4 - M. Ostberg / J. Andersson: "Yeah it is not bad. We took a few seconds off Andreas. We need to keep doing this. The first 5-6km were a bit loose but afterwards it was a bit better."

Car #1 - S. Ogier / J. Ingrassia: "We only had the end split, we did a good time on this one. We have to keep doing this but Jari-Matti did a really good time in there".

Car #2 - J.-M. Latvala / M. Anttila: "The car is fine, everything is good at the moment. We need to manage tires, we don't want to wear them all now. We need to be careful not to lock the tires under braking and in acceleration".
