OGIER Sébastien/INGRASSIA Julien, FRA/FRA, CITROEN C3 WRC: "It's a good stage for us - I am happy with that one."
LAPPI Esapekka/FERM Janne, FIN/FIN, CITROEN C3 WRC: "It's not too bad. There is something a little weird, but I don't know what it is."
MEEKE Kris/MARSHALL Sebastian, GBR/GBR, TOYOTA Yaris WRC: "The guys at the front are making a difference, but it's difficult to do without taking any big risks. My plan for the morning was to hold tight for Baumholder, because in 41 kilometres anything can change."
SORDO Dani/DEL BARRIO Carlos, ESP/ESP, HYUNDAI i20 Coupe WRC: "This stage was not so good for me. I tried to be clean everywhere, but in two places I could have done a little bit more. It's stupid to take too many risks."
TÄNAK Ott/JÄRVEOJA Martin, EST/EST, TOYOTA Yaris WRC: "I had a clean run. There is quite a bit of dirt, but the gaps are small. Now the big stages are waiting - that should be more interesting"
LATVALA Jari-Matti/ANTTILA Miikka, FIN/FIN, TOYOTA Yaris WRC: "I thought it was okay. This stage was very good, I managed to get myself more relaxed and I was enjoying the driving. I think the time should remain good."
NEUVILLE Thierry/GILSOUL Nicolas, BEL/BEL, HYUNDAI i20 Coupe WRC: "I tried but we have to see. I had a good rhythm and feeling with the car. The morning is done and the afternoon is going to be a different story."
KATSUTA Takamoto/BARRITT Daniel, JPN/GBR, TOYOTA, Yaris WRC "The car is working well and I am trying to improve. The conditions have changed a lot, but my gravel crew is doing a very good job."
GREENSMITH Gus/EDMONDSON Elliott, GBR/GBR, FORD Fiesta WRC "It's not how we wanted the morning to go, but thankfully we made the repairs so we can carry on to do Panzerplatte this afternoon - that's good."
MIKKELSEN Andreas/JÆGER Anders, NOR/NOR, HYUNDAI i20 Coupe WRC: "I went slightly off at the beginning - on a left-hander we were in a ditch. I am struggling a bit at the moment. I am trying to get my head around it"
ROVANPERÄ Kalle/HALTTUNEN Jonne, FIN/FIN, SKODA Fabia R5 evo "This time it was better. Just driving normally, but on the road."
ØSTBERG Mads/ERIKSEN Torstein, NOR/NOR, CITROËN C3 R5: "The car is still the same. I am just doing my best to drive perfectly. It's a very long afternoon, so hopefully we can do something clever."
KOPECKÝ Jan/DRESLER Pavel, CZE/CZE, SKODA Fabia R5 Evo "We try to go as fast as possible to enjoy the drive, because that's why we are here. Hopefully we can avoid a puncture in Baumholder this year."
