SATURDAY, JUNE 7
INFO FROM SERVICE PARK, AFTER SPECIAL STAGE 13
Car #3 K. Meeke / P. Nagle: "At Monte Lerno I could not have a good feeling with the car. We are going to change its setup for last leg. For the first time in my career I did the Monte Lerno jump twice and have to say that I could pass them more quickly. To be honest, yesterday's stages were better".

Car #6 E. Evans / D. Barritt: "It's a good race and I'm happy with it. Now I only have to concentrate to keep my position".

Car #9 A. Mikkelsen / O. Floene: "In the first stage of the afternoon I hit a rock after a jump and my front left dumper broke. Tomorrow I'll try to finish the race without problems and then I'll try to give my best during the Power Stage".

Car #7 T. Neuville / N. Gilsoul: "Very positive afternoon, I am fully satisfied. New dumpers' setup worked good and I am going to use it tomorrow too. In Monte Lerno stage grip changes were the most difficult thing to live with".

Car #4 M. Ostberg / J. Andersson: "Everything's fine, it was a good day and I am happy with my race. Main target is bringing home second place. Monte Lerno stage was the same as first loop. We've been very careful not to push too hard on brakes and tyres.".

Car #37 L. Bertelli / M. Dotta: "We are in front thanks to our steady pace, which was good despite Al-Kuwari's dust slowed us down in final kilometres. We have shown that we can bring home this result and now we'll wait for tomorrow".

Car #2 J.-M. Latvala / M. Anttila: "I hit a rock in the middle of the road and my rear right got a puncture. I stopped to change it and the I got some brake issue in the last sector. Now I should try to catch second place, we'll see tomorrow, we need points for the championship".

Car #1 S. Ogier / J. Ingrassia: "I pushed a lot mainly on the first stage, then, at Monte Lerno, I had information that Jari-Matti was forced to stop and so I tried to manage my drive. We were pushing hard, I could not risk anymore either on tyres and on brakes. Now I top the standings and I have to say that it hasn't been easy".

Car #16 H. Solberg / I. Minor: "Everything's ok. I have to manage this position until the end. I had no problems in the long stage, I liked it, I also had fun".
