14.       PAULO NOBRE / EDU PAULA

OFF THEROAD. Stuck in snowbank

18.       THIERRY NEUVILLE / NICOLAS GILSOUL

Stage was big surprice for me.I was a little to opptimistic before start. Lot of work to do.

17.       PETER VAN MERKSTEIJN / EDDY CHEVAILLIER

Quite good. More overstear themn I excpected. Vent slow past Nobre. Looking forward to next SS’s.

19.       RICHARD GÖRANSSON / ANDERS FREDRIKSSON

We have fuel pressure probloems. Very difficult to drive in 6th gear. To power. Lost much time.

Vi har insprutningsproblem. Väldigt svårt att köra på sexans växel. Vi förlorade mycket tid

8.         MICHAL SOLOWOW / MACIEK BARAN

Very nice.but difficult start of SS this morning. Shakey start- fast end

7.         NASSER AL ATTIYAH / GIOVANNI BERNACCHINI

Not easy. New car for me on this surface. Need more feeling for the car. Taking sted by step

12.       ARMINDO ARAUJO / MIGUEL RAMALHO

Not so bad. Not pushing to limit. Go faster during the day. Not been here in 2 years.

60.       SEBASTIAN OGIER / JULIEN INGRASSIA

Some slippery parts but anyway nice. Goi9ng faster and fatser

16.       JARI KETOMAA / MIKA STENBERG

Very good fun. We do what we can. Don’t know how the other guys are going.

10.       HENNING SOLBERG / ILKA MINOR

To much snow here. We lost a lot of time. The others behind are going minumum 30 sec faster.

För mycket snö här. Vi förlorade mycket tid. De bakom tjänar nog minst 30 sekunder.

37.       DANIEL SORDO CASTILLO / CARLOS DEL BARRIO CORRAL

Ok start for me. Maybe some prats woth to much snow. Very , verys fast end of ss.

21.       MARTIN PROKOP / ZDENEK HRÛZA

| Maybe take it carefully becourse this is my first time in this car. This goes so , so fast….Incredible speed

52.       PATRIK SANDELL / STAFFAN PARMANDER

Good SS. Maybe I take it a little bit to slow. Litle bit coward maybe in there.

Bra sträcka. Kanske att jag tar det lite för lugnt och fegt ibland.

5.         OTT TÄNAK / KULDAR SIKK

Off the road and lost 10 ,minutes . Not happy at all.

4.         PETTER SOLBERG / CHRIS PATTERSSON

Fantastic Stage. So much people everywhere- thanks to all fans. Maybe I took it much more slower than I needed.

Fantastisk sträcka. Så mycket folk överallt – tack till alla fans! Jag tog det kanske lite lugnare än jag behövde

6.         EVGENY NOVIKOV / DENIS GIRAUDET

I try to push all the time. But it’s was more slippery then I expected. I’m attacing all the time.

3.         JARI-MATTI LATVALA / MIIKA ANTTILA

Difficult start this morning with this SS. Slippery the first 5 km then it got much better. Also with the grip towards the end of SS.

2.         MIKKO HIRVONEN / JARMO LEHTINEN

Quite Happy. Not yet fully confident with the car (Citroën ) on this surface.

Question: When is that going to be?

Mikko: As soon as possible I hope…

1.         SÉBASTIEN LOEB / DANIEL ELENA

Late out of service due to that they wanted 2 spare tires. To much snow on some places.Tricky.

15.       MADS ØSTBERG / JONAS ANDERSSON

Steady in some parts of SS. Not a big push so early in the rally. The rally has not started yet. More to give.
Stabilt. Jag trycker inte på för fullt så här tidigt i rallyt. Rallyt har ju knappt startat och vi har mer att ge.

64.       EYVIND BRYNILDSEN / CATO MENKERUD

”This is bloody fast” (Big smile). We need to start ”slow ” and go faster. First of all in the tricky part of SS. Good.

Det är grymt snabbt där ute (stort leende). Vi måste starta lite långsamt och öka succesivt, framförallt i de tekniska partierna av sträckorna.

32.       CRAIG BREEN / GARETH ROBERTS

Quite difficult. Feeling like I have trouble ith the back of the car.

33.       PER-GUNNAR ANDERSSON / EMIL AXELSSON

Pretty good. Good feeling. Maybe I could have gone faster in here.

Ganska bra. Bra känsla, men jag kunde nog ha laddat på lite till.

34.       ALISTER MCRAE / WILLIAM HAYES

First time in Sweden in a long time. Feel a little bit rusty. But ok this morning.

49.       PONTUS TIDEMAND / G BERGSTEN

To much sideways. Good rythme and now also when I beat PG thats feels good. Lokking at the times from Mikkelsen.

Lite för mycket i sidled, men bra rytm och jag slog ju P-G och det känns bra. Nu ska vi hålla koll på Mikkelsens tider.

63. MARIUS AASEN / VERONICA ENGAN

Pretty good time. Slippery in some parts. Lost the back windscreen…don’t know where.

Ganska bra tid. Lite halkigt på sina ställen. Jag tappade bakrutan och jag vet inte riktigt vart.

31.       HAYDEN PADDON / JOHN KENNARD

We are here to learn. Good SS

36.       YAZEED AL RAJHI / MICHAEL ORR

Spun in the Stage. Difficult and I must learning all the time.

62.       ANDREAS MIKKELSEN / OLA FLOENE

Was a bit off and lost maybe 10-15 sec here. Fast SS towards the finnish.

Vi var inte riktigt på tårna och förlorade kanske 10-15 sekunder här. Snabb sträcka mot målet!
