QUOTES AFTER SS3

Marcus Grönholm: "These are the sorts of conditions we expected. There's a bit of gravel on the road but not too much. However, you can feel the wheels spinning, so you lose a little bit of time on each corner. We have to push hard because the Fords are going very well. It's going to be a big fight with them! But our car feels good -- no problems at all."

Richard Burns: "It's difficult running first on the road. There were a few loose rocks on the first stage then it was a bit better on the second. I think the next loop of stages is going to be worse though. On the third stage we had a spin right over the flying finish and hit a bank, but I don't think it cost us any time. We've not been using the air conditioning on the stages this morning, as it's been misting the windscreen up."

Harri Rovanperä: "I think I was a little bit too careful on the first two stages, then on the third stage it was OK. But I'm not so happy with my times and I don't feel I've got enough grip. At this service I'm going to think very carefully about which tyres to use for the next loop -- maybe we can make a better choice."

Gilles Panizzi: "I'm happy: we've been able to set some nice times. I think I chose too soft tyres, which is partly down to my inexperience with gravel rubber. The car was moving about quite a lot, but at the moment I feel comfortable. There's a long way to go and I don't want to take risks."
