Hänninen: The feeling was actually quite good

What the drivers had to say after the 18th stage of ADAC Rallye Deutschland 2017.

OGIER Sébastien/INGRASSIA Julien, FRA/FRA, FORD FIESTA WRC: "It's never easy. For sure, we're now aiming for the Power Stage. Of course, we're going fast, but nothing crazy."

TÄNAK Ott/JÄRVEOJA Martin, EST/EST, FORD FIESTA WRC: "Very good, very clean stage. When the conditions are a little bit more clean, I really enjoy it. Let Andreas push, let him do his job."

EVANS Elfyn/BARRITT Daniel, GBR/GBR, FORD FIESTA WRC: "We just had an overshoot in a junction and stalled. We were going well but from the look of the time it wasn't going to be enough anyway."

PADDON Hayden/MARSHALL Sebastian, NZL/GBR, HYUNDAI i20 WRC: "I feel a bit sleepy. It's been a relaxing week but today we had to get up at 5 o'clock. So, I'm still a bit sleepy, I guess."

NEUVILLE Thierry/GILSOUL Nicolas, BEL/BEL, HYUNDAI i20 WRC: "Not so nice. A lot of wheel spin. No good handling. We will try to fix this. Of course, after yesterday, it's all about the Power Stage."

SORDO Dani/MARTÍ Marc, ESP/ESP, HYUNDAI i20 WRC: "It was okay. A difficult stage, slippery in places. I didn't do very well. I will try on the Power Stage but if we continue at this speed we won't take any points."

BREEN Craig/MARTIN Scott, IRL/GBR, CITROËN C3 WRC: "I didn't push enough. It's a fresh stage. There is a bit more to get out of it with experience."

MIKKELSEN Andreas/JÆGER Anders, NOR/NOR, CITROËN C3 WRC: "It was a clean stage. I've tried to keep the pressure on Ott. We've seen mistakes many times, so we'll keep it on."

LATVALA Jari-Matti/ANTTILA Miikka, FIN/FIN, TOYOTA YARIS WRC: "Basically, this is quite a nice stage. But there are some bumps. The grip is good but in places there's some moisture and it's slippery. As long as you stay on the tarmac, everything is fine."

HÄNNINEN Juho/LINDSTRÖM Kaj, FIN/FIN, TOYOTA YARIS WRC: "The feeling was actually quite good. I tried to come a bit faster but not overdo it."

LAPPI Esapekka/FERM Janne, FIN/FIN, TOYOTA YARIS WRC: "The car feels good. A good start. A bit dirty in the high-speed sections where you have to be careful. I know what to do - at least I should know. We analysed a lot last night."

KREMER Armin/WINKLHOFER Pirmin, DEU/DEU, FORD FIESTA WRC: "The car is running well. We have a good feeling. We'll see what we can do and are looking forward to the rest of the day."

TIDEMAND Pontus/ANDERSSON Jonas, SWE/SWE, ŠKODA FABIA R5: "No nerves, but we need to stay concentrated. No risks, no DTM braking. We need to get to the finish. Three stages to go."

CAMILLI Eric/VEILLAS Benjamin, FRA/FRA, FORD FIESTA R5: "Everything is going well. We try to be cautious and stay focused. Let's see."

KOPECKÝ Jan/DRESLER Pavel, CZE/CZE, ŠKODA FABIA R5: "These stages are not too difficult. We're trying to be as quick as possible. Next week, we have the Barum Rally and we're trying to be in good shape for that."

GRIEBEL Marijan/KOPCZYK Stefan, DEU/DEU, ŠKODA FABIA R5: "I'm trying to adjust my driving style, use less handbrake. We had an impact on the front left in a cut."

LOUBET Pierre-Louis/LANDAIS Vincent, FRA/FRA, FORD FIESTA R5: [After high-speed spin.] "It was the biggest moment of my life. Fifth gear, completely flat out!"

FUMAL Armand/LOUETTE Michael, BEL/BEL, CITROËN DS3 R5: [Broken gearbox] "I only have one gear left."

VOSSEN Henk/VAN BARSCHOT Sander, NDL/NDL, FORD FIESTA R5: "With my Mitsubishi, I was driving a taxi. With this R5, I now have a rally car."
