Statements of the participants of the ADAC Rallye Deutschland

What the drivers had to say after the 17th stage of ADAC Rallye Deutschland 2018.

OGIER Sébastien/INGRASSIA Julien, FRA/FRA, FORD Fiesta WRC: "We had a clean stage and we tried to keep a good rhythm."

EVANS Elfyn/BARRITT Daniel, GBR/GBR, FORD Fiesta WRC: "All fine, just getting through these two runs, nice stage actually."

SUNINEN Teemu/MARKKULA Mikko, FIN/FIN, FORD Fiesta WRC: "It was okay, I tried to save the tyres and I wasn't too smooth with the handbrake at the hairpins so I stalled twice."

MIKKELSEN Andreas/JÆGER Anders, NOR/NOR, HYUNDAI i20 Coupe WRC: "I'm just trying to keep the pressure on. I'm trying to push hard but if I push in the wrong sections I have a lot of moments. When the feeling is not there and you start to push, that is not nice at all."

NEUVILLE Thierry/GILSOUL Nicolas, BEL/BEL, HYUNDAI i20 Coupe WRC: "I kept a good rhythm in there, but I stalled the car on the first junction. I lost some time, but you never know how much, so I kept going fast."

TÄNAK Ott/JÄRVEOJA Martin, EST/EST, TOYOTA Yaris WRC: "Clean rhythm, no worries. We are on asphalt, so five points is definitely not possible [from the Power Stage], but we will try our best."

LAPPI Esapekka/FERM Janne, FIN/FIN, TOYOTA Yaris WRC: "Very much a deliberate run through there. As we saw on the first pass, Thierry's pace is too fast for me so I'm just keeping it on the road."

BREEN Craig/MARTIN Scott, IRL/GBR, CITROËN C3 WRC: "Tricky stage, little bit happier with the driving on that one, so yeah happy."
