flash info (19 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): I didn't go very well, I don't know why because I felt like I was pushing. I stalled in the last stage and lost third place but we will try to understand why and look to do a bit better tomorrow.
flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We tried to avoid taking any risks for punctures and just had a smooth clean run, continuing to push as Tanak was pushing behind. We are happy with our lead heading into tomorrow. I have done my job so far and my teammates are really trying to resist but obviously Tanak was fast this afternoon - I think he had an aerodynamic advantage on those types of stages. We are going to try and finish the job we started yesterday morning and let's see whether Tanak can claim second or if he stays in third.
flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I need to stay in second and it's difficult because Ott is pushing hard and he knows how to drive very well on tarmac. Tomorrow is a big day ahead and it's not so long so I will continue to fight.
flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The feeling was much more relaxed and definitely it was not a great situation this morning to wake up and start pushing. I can't do that as I didn't have full confidence so I had to go step by step and the rhythm was coming. The stages are quite challenging tomorrow - the first one is the slowest of the rally and quite twisty and the Power Stage is mostly new and quite fast. Let's see what tomorrow brings.
flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's very slippery with the sand and on one of the left-handers I ran wide on the entry and I don't know what I hit! It's just some cosmetic damage. The first stage was a bit slow but then we were improving the speed. The afternoon started well but then we were losing our performance a little bit towards the end of the day.
flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): We've been trying all day. Unfortunately we have been unable to find the pace on all stages. I was pushing hard and although it's only a little bit, if you want to be competitive then those two or three seconds at the end of every stage make a difference.
flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): It was okay but again 3 seconds from Seb. Hopefully someday we can be in front of him. It's really close but of course we are fighting for all of the seconds we can.
