Car 1.   OGIER/INGRASSIA

“So far it has not been troublefree this weekend. I know Ott will push until the end. We have a bit of a

gap and can afford to lose a bit during the morning, but I need to win this rally now. If I do the job he

should not be able to catch me. It’s hard to make the compromise for the whole loop (tyre choice).

Car 5.   MEEKE/MARSHALL

“I am in no-man’s land in terms of my position. I can drop time on the first couple of stages to protect

tyres for the Power Stage. Temperatures are going to rise though so it is difficult to know. My last two

Rally Méxicos I had a bit of a slip up on the final day, so you never know.”

Car 6.   SORDO/DEL BARRIO

“I feel good. Today is important. We try to finish the rally and take points for the Manufacturers’

Championship.”

Car 8.   TÄNAK/JÄRVEOJA

“Sébastien is far away and he has a good speed all the weekend. I believe the first battle with Elfyn and

it will be a good one I believe. He has been working hard and has had a good weekend. I will do my

best. It’s quite a tricky tyre choice. Many stages have been done before in parts and it’s early in the

morning.”

Car 10.   LATVALA/ANTTILA

“Yasterday was an eventful day It was a nice day. I got a one-minute penalty for fiddling around in the

light fitting area. I need to keep pushing. I still have a chance for the seventh place. The team calculated

65% of the stages today have been used already.”

Car 11.   NEUVILLE/GILSOUL

“I feel quite okay. Not much today. Two minutes gap behind and 50 in front. We are gonna cruise

around and try and get the points from the Power Stage and see what happens in front with Ott and

Elfyn.”

Car 33.   EVANS/MARTIN

“I feel okay and am looking forward to the day. A big fight and we want to do the best job we can. Some

parts will be more familiar and some bits will be loose and slippery. Maybe contrasting grip within

stages today.”

Car 21.   PIENIAZEK/HELLER

“It’s going to be a tough day. The one and only goal is to finish and get the points. We are going to do

our job.”

Car 41.   GUERRA/ZAPATA

“It’s amazing being the local driver in the rally with all the people supporting you. I hope to win to give

them something to celebrate with me. It’s not so bad. It could be a very good result. My best result ever

was sixth in a World Rally Car here, but this is in an R5 car. We could be in the top five if someone in

front of us has a problem. I think you need to drive carefully on Friday and then take care and lift a bit

on Saturday to give you a good car for Sunday.”
