Statements of the participants of the ADAC Rallye Deutschland

What the drivers had to say after the 16th stage of 2019 ADAC Rallye Deutschland.

OGIER Sébastien/INGRASSIA Julien, FRA/FRA, CITROEN C3 WRC: "We have to keep driving. The car is still not great, but at least we can use this day as a test."

SUNINEN Teemu/ LEHTINEN Jarmo, FIN/FIN, FORD Fiesta WRC: "It's clean and nice. I was careful, so I think we lost some time."

LAPPI Esapekka/FERM Janne, FIN/FIN, CITROEN C3 WRC: "It was quite okay. On the forest I was not at my best, but it's better this way than the other way round."

MEEKE Kris/MARSHALL Sebastian, GBR/GBR, TOYOTA Yaris WRC: "We just kept a rhythm and it felt good. Obviously the situation has changed, but I am just trying to be as clean as possible."

SORDO Dani/DEL BARRIO Carlos, ESP/ESP, HYUNDAI i20 Coupe WRC: "At least I finished! I tried to do my best, so I will continue."

TÄNAK Ott/JÄRVEOJA Martin, EST/EST, TOYOTA Yaris WRC: "Clean run and no worries. There are many new sections, so you really need to focus."

LATVALA Jari-Matti/ANTTILA Miikka, FIN/FIN, TOYOTA Yaris WRC: "Dani was on the attack and I just took it steadily - no panic. It's okay."

NEUVILLE Thierry/GILSOUL Nicolas, BEL/BEL, HYUNDAI i20 Coupe WRC: "I am still waiting for something to happen at the front and then we will see."

KATSUTA Takamoto/BARRITT Daniel, JPN/GBR, TOYOTA, Yaris WRC "We stalled in a hairpin but this is about learning. The stage was very narrow and tricky, but on the next one I will improve."

MIKKELSEN Andreas/JÆGER Anders, NOR/NOR, HYUNDAI i20 Coupe WRC: "I went off and had to find my way back in again. After that, the rhythm was not really good. We have to reset and try again."

ROVANPERÄ Kalle/HALTTUNEN Jonne, FIN/FIN, SKODA Fabia R5 evo "It was quite good. There is new parts on the stage, so I took it easily on those parts. In the morning it is quite slippery on hard tyres - I was cautious but it was good."

KOPECKÝ Jan/DRESLER Pavel, CZE/CZE, SKODA Fabia R5 Evo "The stage is hard - there is a lot of loose gravel and some muddy parts in the forest so you have to be really careful."

CAMILLI Eric/VEILLAS Ben, FRA/FRA, FORD Fiesta R5 MkII "I had no bite on the brakes since the first hairpin and I went straight on at one hairpin. I might have to bleed [the brakes]. Maybe in Panzerplatte yesterday it was too much - I don't know."
