“I had some trouble with the brakes on the 6 km mark. The road feels good”.

Team Austria-STOHL/MINOR
“The road was fine and I haven’t had any difficulties with the car so far.”

“I had no trouble with the car, although almost at the end of the stage I lost some time”

“I had a flat tire that cost me some time because we had to change it on the road”

“The tires are wearing down really fast and the car has understeer. The road is very good”

“We had to stop for a while because Gassner was on the road changing a flat tire. There were no other problems”

”I’ve got no hand-brake, it’s loose, but the rest of the car is working perfectly”

Team Spain – PONS/HARO
Refused to comment.

“The car felt good. This is my first time in Mexico, it is a tough rally, but I’m happy. The car is doing perfectly.”

“I’m still having a hard time with the brakes. This stage was really quick!”

“We changed the air pressure in the rear tires and the car felt much better. I really enjoyed this stage. I put my foot down as far as I could, but  just couldn't get it completely up to speed.”
