Selected driver quotes from Finland Rally after stage 14

01.08.2015: WRC Rallyes - NESTE OIL FINLAND RALLY Saturday, August 1st, 2015

Saturday, August 1st, 2015

Crews are en-route to Jyväskylä for the midpoint 30-minute service. The afternoon's competition kicks off at 1437hrs with the repeat of Mökkiperä.

Sat 12:34 - WRC top 5 after SS14

Latvala quickest [+ times to leader]: 1. Latvala (VW): 1h48m20.3s, 2. Ogier (VW): +3.0s, 3. Meeke (DS 3): +33.5s, 4. Ostberg (DS 3): +47.0s, 5. Neuville (Hyundai): +2m33.2s

Sat 12:45 - WRC 2 top 5 after SS12

[+ times to leader]: 1. Lappi (Skoda Fabia R5): 1h53m15.3s, 2. Tidemand (Skoda Fabia R5): +1m11.9s, 3. Lefebvre (DS 3 RRC): +2m22.9s, 4. Nikara (Ford Fiesta R5): +3m40.2s, 5. Protasov (Ford Fiesta RRC): +3m42.4s

Sat 12:43 - SS14: WRC 2 Pedder

"That's the stage of the event for me. Brilliant. A beautiful surface, beautiful roads and a decent time too. It's only our fourth rally in the car, our first event in Finland and I reckon it's going pretty well so far."

Sat 12:43 - SS14: WRC 2 Nikara

A scary-sounding 360-degree spin for the Finn.

Sat 12:32 - SS14: WRC 2 Lappi

"Everything is fine. One pace note correction, that's all."

Sat 12:30 - SS14: Bertelli

"We lost some seconds here and there but I am getting closer to the rhythm of the guys in front so I'm happy."

Sat 12:29 - SS14: Hanninen

"The time difference is quite big to the guys ahead. It would be frustrating to keep comparing to them, so instead I'm just driving my own rally." He remains seventh on the leaderboard but Tanak is closing on him fast.

Sat 12:25 - SS14: Al Qassimi

"Better notes this time because the stage was slower."

Sat 12:24 - SS14: Prokop

19.1sec off the pace and eager to get back to service and tweak his car's set-up before the afternoon loop.

Sat 12:23 - SS14: Sordo

He's four-tenths quicker than his team-mate Neuville but smiles when he sees the times of the Volkswagens almost 10 sec quicker. "There's nothing wrong but it's a very big, big gap."

Sat 12:19 - SS14: Tanak

"The time in the car has been good, but this stage was terrible - I was too slow in the corners."

Sat 12:17 - SS14: Evans

"Still work to be done. A bit more commitment and feeling to come."

Sat 12:16 - SS14: Meeke

The car is working really well. I didn't find my lines in the start of this stage and I had to back off, but overall a good morning."
