flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): They are so powerful they pull lots more dirt onto the road in the slow corners. Its really noticeable with the 2017 cars. I have to be cautious but at the same time follow their lines.
flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): There was a lot of gravel here and not so much to gain. It's all about the Power Stage now, and that means we have to get through today. No risks.
flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): That means it's all going to plan. I wanted to be 30 seconds ahead tonight. It was very dirty in there, maybe my tyres were not the perfect choice. I was a bit on the limit.
flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): In the dirty places the tyres was good but in the dry they were overheating a bit. It's difficult to have the perfect tyre in this stage.
flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Good. I mean, it's easier now that when we did the stage on Thursday. I was trying to use what I learned.
flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): For sure there is more and more mud on the road. It will get slower and slower I think. Sometimes the sun was in my eyes and I couldn't see so clearly.
flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I had a good stage but I stalled in a hairpin and lost one or two secs there. There is more and more mud being pulled out. Let's see how the other guys do - Lappi is the important one.
flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): Good fun on this stage. It's unbelievable, going from driving so slowly earlier to now this.
flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was okay, but there's a lot of dirt on the road already after just two cars. It would have been easy to trip up. A good stage but slippery in places.
flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I tried to do a good stage. I'm on the super-softs, I'm not sure it was the right choice though - okay, it's a compromise.
flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It was nice to have a clean road. I really, really enjoyed it. A good feeling in the car, but I wasn't committed enough in a couple of places. If I was in a fight, I reckon it's a stage for soft tyres, but I did my best to make the stage as messy as possible. Let's see how they get on.
