What the drivers had to say after the 17th stage of 2019 ADAC Rallye Deutschland.

OGIER Sébastien/INGRASSIA Julien, FRA/FRA, CITROEN C3 WRC: "I can do absolutely nothing. The stage is fine for me, but I cannot drive this car."

SUNINEN Teemu/ LEHTINEN Jarmo, FIN/FIN, FORD Fiesta WRC: "It was really clean, so I was enjoying the drive there. I think the rhythm was a bit better, but I need to learn how to drive on the vineyards."

LAPPI Esapekka/FERM Janne, FIN/FIN, CITROEN C3 WRC: "I am here. That's all. I don't know."

MEEKE Kris/MARSHALL Sebastian, GBR/GBR, TOYOTA Yaris WRC: "Happy. It was tricky in there, some places had a lot more grip than I was expecting, but in other places there was a lot of gravel."

SORDO Dani/DEL BARRIO Carlos, ESP/ESP, HYUNDAI i20 Coupe WRC: "I made a mistake in a hairpin and lost a bit of time. I like the stage - a bit tricky and slippery in some places, but the car is working very well."

TÄNAK Ott/JÄRVEOJA Martin, EST/EST, TOYOTA Yaris WRC: "Let's see - some power stage points would be nice."

LATVALA Jari-Matti/ANTTILA Miikka, FIN/FIN, TOYOTA Yaris WRC: "I had to attack, because we were losing time to Sordo and I thought that my driving was far too careful. Luckily we got it back."

NEUVILLE Thierry/GILSOUL Nicolas, BEL/BEL, HYUNDAI i20 Coupe WRC: "A very tricky stage to be honest - very dirty. I took it a bit careful in some places, but we were able to change our notes for the power stage."

KATSUTA Takamoto/BARRITT Daniel, JPN/GBR, TOYOTA, Yaris WRC "Normal driving - still careful, but maybe some improvements in the hairpins: I didn't stall!"

GREENSMITH Gus/EDMONDSON Elliott, GBR/GBR, FORD Fiesta WRC "They are good fun. It was really dirty in there on the edge of the road - even when I was there, the gravel notes had to be changed so much. That is going to change a lot for the second pass."

MIKKELSEN Andreas/JÆGER Anders, NOR/NOR, HYUNDAI i20 Coupe WRC: "We had a clean run. I was not really happy with the beginning of the stage. I am just trying to drive at my own pace where I feel good."

KOPECKÝ Jan/DRESLER Pavel, CZE/CZE, SKODA Fabia R5 Evo "It is difficult to enjoy. The leaves are everywhere, so it is very messy and dirty."
