“In the first stage [SS17] I had so many moments in the first five kilometres – three or four times we were nearly off the road. That first split was actually a really good time, but I didn’t want to risk not finishing the rally. Once you slow down here you lose so much time that it is impossible to keep up with the guys with a good rhythm.

 

“We saw yesterday that the second pass was really rough so we’ll make the set-up a little stiffer in service to help deal with that. Other than that, the car is working well so there is no need to make any dramatic changes.”
