|DRIVERS QUOTES AFTER SS11 MONTE LERNO
|Car #3 - K. Meeke / P. Nagle: "Three corners in I went wide at an hairpin and hit a rock, which knocked the wheel out of the line. Then had to back off a bit".
Car #7 T. Neuville / N. Gilsoul:
"Very long stage, very big jump. I Like it a lot but there is not grip at all, I went sideways everywhere. I adapt to conditions but I do not feel confident at all".
Car #22 J. Melicharek / E. Melicharek: "I lost time sliding and the engine stalled several times. It's a little bit crazy ".
Car #12 - K. Al Qassimi / C. Patterson: "I spun twice I was losing the tires towards the end. In one I was held up by a tree. It's a too long stage".
Car #20 H. Paddon / J. Kennard: "We might have engine issues, checking if we have fluids leak".
Car #16 - H. Solberg / L. Minor: "Yeah, it is good stage I am happy. I am going as fast as I can and I am happy. I have good tires, not concerned with wear".
Car #21 - M. Prokop / J. Tomanek: "I did too many mistakes on this stage, one was very huge... I braked too late on a tight right-hander, but I was lucky. Too many mistakes, not happy with that. I tried to make up time but did not find the rhythm".
Car #6 - E. Evans / D. Barritt: "Hard work, not bad in the first half, but more difficult in the second. It is a little bit long stage to be fair. I tried to stay ahead of Martin".
Car #10 - R. Kubica / M. Szczepaniak: "It was good, more grip than expected and I felt more confident. I am happy as I did some good driving".
Car #9 - A. Mikkelsen / O. Floene: "Tried to have a clean stage without mistakes, you can always push more but you will take more risks which I do not want to do. We try to keep the car within limits".
Car #4 - M. Ostberg / J. Andersson: "Tried to control a little bit. If you want to you can be faster but the car is moving sideways massively".
Car #1 - S. Ogier / J. Ingrassia:
"Not quick enough but we had the info that Jari has stopped and we backed off a bit right before the jump but then we were told he was moving and we had to push hard again. We could have been faster, but these things happen".
Car #2 - J.-M. Latvala / M. Anttila: "Engine temperature went up to 132 degrees, we turned the car to road mode we were preparing to retire and then temperature went down again. In the end it was OK but it was very stressful, very stressful".
