Mads Østberg, Adapta World Rally Team, Ford Fiesta RS WRC (4th)

“Everything went as planned this afternoon. We finally got some good feeling with the car after we changed the brake master cylinder in the last service. The car felt quite different, so maybe there was something with that all weekend because the car felt very strange from time to time and we had to make quite a few set-up changes – but now the car felt good.

“It has been a tricky event and the off on Friday was not good. But apart from that I think we have done exactly what we planned to do. The result in the end is not so bad at all really so I am happy with that.”

Martin Prokop, Ford Fiesta RS WRC (5th)

“The weekend was very good for us with no mistakes. The car was good – we had a few problems with the anti-roll bar but the rest was ok. This type of rally means it is very tough to bring the car to the end so I am very happy – it is another fantastic result for us.”

Yazeed Al Rajhi, Ford Fiesta RRC (8th)

“This afternoon’s stages were quite nice. I tried to push a little bit, but was careful not to make any mistakes. We made it to the end and it was a great job for me and for the team. I have learnt a lot on this rally – about driving in rough surfaces and with lots of changeable weather making the roads really slippery – so I take a lot of good experience from this event. It really was a great result for us.”

Spyros Pavlides, Ford Fiesta RS WRC (12th)

“We took it really quite slowly over the last stage [SS22] – I made sure I avoided every rock and every stone just to make it to the end. I am glad we are here, our position is not bad at all and I really enjoyed the rally. I could not say any more – the team and everyone were fantastic and it has been a brilliant weekend!”
