|DRIVERS QUOTES AFTER SS15 CASTELSARDO
|Car #22 - J. Melicharek / E. Melicharek: "Short stage, very narrow and tight corners. Everything is good, no problem".
Car #3 - K. Meeke / P. Nagle: "Very very technical stage, a lot of big rocks you always have be to be aware of. Tried to be careful, don't want to hit a rock. I was pretty happy on day one, difficult yesterday. OK we are not in a fight, now we try not to make any mistake".
Car #7 - T. Neuville / N. Gilsoul: "It is OK I had a good run, tried to be careful with the tires, paying attention not to lock the brakes. I guess there is no chance of getting points in the power stage. I will try to enjoy the day now and bring back the car".
Car #20 - H. Paddon / J. Kennard: "We took a couple of softs on the car that worked OK on the first one but they went off about halfway through this one. It is just a matter of progression, we knew coming here for the first time was difficult".
Car #12 - K. Al Qassimi / C. Patterson: "Things are better, the setup is working good, pushing. It is a matter of avoiding rocks, it is in hour hand now. It is a very difficult stage".
Car #10 - R. Kubica / M. Szczepaniak: "It is a bit lost, yesterday I was very unlucky. Today we take it quite easy. I have a few problems in the down-shifts and I got stuck in gear when changing down at hairpins so I lost time it is time to get some experience and have some fun".
Car #16 - H. Solberg / L. Minor: "Going slowly through the sectors. Trying not to take too make mistakes".
Car #21 - M. Prokop / J. Tomanek: "Going to the finish, the pain is not nice. It is hard not to lose concentration, towards the end tried to push more and lost a bit the concentration".
Car #6 - E. Evans / D. Barritt: "We lifted the pace on the first one to get familiar with the stage and pressed a little bit more in here. The grip seemed to be low near the end for some reason, but it is generally OK. The car is working fantastically well, so far so good".
Car #9 - A. Mikkelsen / O. Floene: "For us it is quite easy now, we take it quite easy now to save tires for the power-stage. It has been a really good weekend for us, but things can still happen".
Car #2 - J.-M. Latvala / M. Anttila: "Mads did very good times but he was also on very good tires. On this stage, I know that soft are better for performance but we have to see. I had a good stage but I do not know if it is going to be enough. We might have a chance".
Car #4 - M. Ostberg / J. Andersson: "We do have a spare tire. There is nothing else to do really. It was much more effective than expected but with rising temperatures they were perhaps a little bit too soft. Now we switch to hard tires, so no problem".
Car #1 - S. Ogier / J. Ingrassia: "You just have to concentrate on the job when you have such a gap, we tried to save tires not pushing at all. Notes did not change, it is all down to me".
