Car #18 T. Katsuta – D. Barritt (Toyota Yaris WRC): “The conditions are much better, you have more grip. I expected more grip though, some sections are still slippery so it is still tricky”

Car #8 O. Tänak – M. Järveoja (Hyundai i20 Coupé WRC):”It is the cleaning effect. It is not easy, I had a clean stage and more grip than in the morning. It is all OK”

Car #7 P.L. Loubet – V. Landais (Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC): “It is so difficult, I struggle with the car.  It felt like a broken damper or something like that. Very strange, under braking it was moving so much. Very difficult.” [bits of the car missing in the back]

Car #44 G. Greensmith – E. Edmondson (Ford Fiesta WRC): did not speak

Car #33 E. Evans – S. Martin (Toyota Yaris WRC): “I had quite a bit of movement in the car. I was trying to be clean and tidy, maybe not pushing quite hard enough”.

Car #17 S. Ogier – J. Ingrassia (Toyota Yaris WRC): “I do not know what it is, I see it was moving there but honestly I focused on the road so I was not distracted”. [top strip of the windscreen loose]

Car #11 T. Neuville – N. Gilsoul (Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC): “I touched something 3kms before the end on the front right and I had to slow down the rhythm, I could not carry on at the same speed”

Car #3 T. Suninen – J. Lehtinen (Ford Fiesta WRC): “I was struggling quite a lot in the hairpins, but there is a reason for that [handbrake issue] I am just trying to keep everything I have and that is all I can do” [front splitter a bit broken]

Car #6 D. Sordo – C. Del Barrio (Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC): “All is good, no concerns about the car. I took it a little bit careful for the tyres but otherwise all was OK, no problem”
