Rallye Monte-Carlo

Saturday, January 26th  2019






Sébastien Ogier


"I think it was not so much easy stage so far. This morning was very tricky, the first a lot with the ice and the snow, it was quite low grip most of the time. I am pleased to be here and have an increased gap. "There was quite often up and down on the splits between Thierry and me when I was managing the tyres. It is often very close between us - so far, so good.

"I went a bit sideways on the first stage with the studs on asphalt, that was actually the first moment I had all weekend but on this stage I was definitely on the limit for sure. "This afternoon I don't expect the ice to go away, it will be a tricky choice I'm sure."




Thierry Neuville


"I was struggling a bit with the ice on the soft tyres, but compared to the others on super softs the difference was not that big. "It was tricky, especially this last stage - I felt the grip was very low. It looks very dangerous where Elfyn went off, I was pleased to see the OK sign. "The rhythm so far has been good, we are going to try to put the pressure on this afternoon."



Jari-Matti Latvala



"I wasn't completely happy after the first stage, I was losing a bit of time - to Loeb we lost six seconds. Then on the second stage we had a push - and I had quite a big moment on the first corner - but it was a good push.


"I remember the first time I was faster than Loeb, it was Catalunya 2007! Now I am faster than him here. "We are just going to work in service on getting the car better when turning in. "The stages will be a bit drier this afternoon but I believe you still need the winter tyres - especially the first stage."





Daniel Elena


"It is a difficult race! We enjoy it, there is sun, it is good weather today! "The tyre choice yesterday was difficult to choose but it is not hard if you are in the right position. "Now we have to be quick because Ott is really pushing. It will be coffee at service and maximum attack!"




Sébastien Loeb


"It was a bit difficult in the first stage and on the second I stalled so that wasn't a great start. The second stage the rhythm wasn't bad it was just that Toyota was faster than everyone. We are still in the fight for third but it will be difficult because Jari-Matti is very quick.

"Today I felt immediately that some places were really slippery and that it would be very easy to go off. I didn't want to make a mistake, it was new stages for me. "We are still here, that is the most important, and we continue to fight."



Ott Tänak


"All good. Generally conditions are a bit more consistent, but still seriously difficult. The car is good, we made some changes last night and the car is more stable.

"Every stage so far has been seriously difficult! On the last one I had a real moment there, I was seriously over the edge at high speed."





Kris Meeke


"I really enjoyed it. Nothing to fight for, but as Monte happens we're up to sixth. I haven't enjoyed myself like this since 2016. The car underneath me is so nice. I enjoyed it this morning. "You have to watch yourself, there are lots of tricky places.

I just want to stay concentrated, keep my rhythm and see what I can do tomorrow on the Power Stage." He's also asked about the section where Elfyn went off the road: "Just after the start of SS10 it was quite damp and I think the asphalt is quite smooth and I think quite icy."




Teemu Suninen


"Haven't been the easiest day, the conditions have been changing all the time. Some corners are getting more icy and some are getting drier and that is a difficult thing for the drivers. "The gravel crews went through three hours before the stage and once the sun comes up the conditions are changing quickly."
