Evgeny Novikov (6th) said:

“For sure this [SS1] was not the easiest stage to start with. It was quite difficult and there are a lot of tricky places. There is an asphalt section in the middle and we took it easy through there as we have never driven that section in competition and I didn’t want to take any risks. So we lost a bit of time there.

“Apart from that, everything was fine. The stage was completely dry and there was no rain at all.”

Ott Tänak (7th) said:

“The stage was quite ok, but it was very loose and quite slippery. We had a spin at the beginning of the stage, but after that the feeling was getting better and better. Other than that we had no problems and I am looking forward to tomorrow’s stages.”
