It is too slippery to push the limits

What the drivers said after the eighth stage of ADAC Rallye Deutschland.

LOEB, Sébastien / ELENA, Daniel: "It was difficult to drive with the hard tyres in the rain. I didn't want to make any mistakes."

SOLBERG, Petter / PATTERSON, Chris: "The conditions are very difficult, but it's going quite well."

LATVALA, Jari-Matti / ANTTILA, Miikka: "I lost some time as I went straight on into a field. I need to stay focussed in order to be able to finish third." (left-hand side mirror missing)

NEUVILLE, Thierry / GILSOUL, Nicolas: "It was a nice stage and I had a good speed, but I spun once. It seems I am still not familiar with the car."

SORDO, Daniel / DEL BARRIO, Carlos: "The time is okay - I'm satisfied. I am in third position now, but there is still a long way to go. I cannot go any faster, after all I have taken a lot of risk now."

HIRVONEN, Mikko / LEHTINEN, Jarmo: "Now I love this rally, because I have not made any mistakes."

TANAK, Ott / SIKK, Kuldar: "This was a fast, trouble-free stage. We are doing our best."

ÖSTBERG, Mads / ANDERSSON, Jonas: "It is very tough. Soft tyres would have been the optimal choice."

ATKINSON, Chris / PRÈVOT, Stephane: I would like to keep up this position. The car is good - I am satisfied."

VANMERKSTEIJN JR.Peter/CHEVAILLIER: "I have a good feeling, I am satisfied. It was very slippery."

AL ATTIYAH, Nasser / BERNACCHINI, G.: "It is not easy today. The hard tyres were the wrong choice. I took it very cautiously because here you can easily make a mistake."

NOVIKOV, Evgeny / GIRAUDET, Denis: "It is very slippery with the hard tyres."

OGIER, Sébastien / INGRASSIA, Julien: "It is too slippery to push the limits."

MIKKELSEN, Andreas / FLOENE, Ola: "This was a faster stage. I had problems with heavy understeering. We ought to be more competitive."

WIEGAND, Sepp / GOTTSCHALK, T.: "It is not easy, but I like these conditions and felt good. It will be difficult on Panzerplatte with the soft tyres."
