“The pacenotes are still really bad. For the first two stages [SS11 and SS12] I had some notes from 2009 – not full, but almost full – so they were OK.

“I really don’t know what I was thinking on the recce. On every other corner I know I can be quicker. If the notes were consistently slow then that would be one thing and I could just drive faster. But then on this last one [SS15] for example, one corner was correct and I had a massive moment straight afterwards.

“It’s frustrating. The rally starts with the recce, and I made a bad start this week. We’ve made a lot of corrections to the notes so hopefully we can improve a bit more this afternoon.”
