Tidemand was the only driver not to take all hard compound tyres into afternoon loop.

 

Car 1.    OGIER/INGRASSIA

“Two spares were needed this afternoon because we have slicks (worn fronts).”

 

Car 3.    SUNINEN/LEHTINEN

“I was doing my best and trying to push. It was not enough. I tried to save the tyres.”

 

Car 4.    LAPPI/FERM

“It felt quite horrible in the end. It is part of the game (tyres). I have two spares so it is fine.”

 

Car 5.    MEEKE/MARSHALL

“The objective is not Jari. It is Dani. I could not have done much more to be honest.”

 

Car 6.    SORDO/DEL BARRIO

Checked tyre wear at the end of the stage. “I have two new (tyres) so…!”

 

Car 7.    TIDEMAND/FLOENE

“It’s started cleaning. It’s a bit more rough. We need to find the pace where you can survive (preserve) the tyre.”

 

Car 10.   LATVALA/ANTTILA

“Very hard (tyre wear). Luckily we have two spares and no punctures. We should be okay.”

 

Car 11.  NEUVILLE/GILSOUL

“I see that Kris is constantly losing a little bit of time. I drive and see if someone has a problem and see if we can grab another position.”

 

Car 89.  MIKKELSEN/JAEGER

“I guess tyres are quite used. But I have two spares. We will be fine.”

 

Car 23.   KOPECKÝ/DRESLER

Stopped 14.6km into the stage for around two minutes and then began moving again.

 

Car 46.   PEDRO/BALDACCINI

Correction – Pedro did actually start the loop of stages on Saturday morning and held 24th overall after SS10.
