FIESTA R5 QUOTES, 2017 RALLY POLAND, SECTION SEVEN

Éric Camilli (3rd RC2) said:

“On the whole I think it was a good weekend for us and we are happy to finish in third place after a really tricky weekend for everyone. It’s a good result after the win in Sardinia. It’s good for the confidence that we can be fast in a lot of different conditions – slow, fast, wet, dry – and now we look forward to the next one.”

Pierre-Louis Loubet (8th RC2) said:

“I would say that this weekend has been a bit like ‘fifty-fifty.’ We can be happy with our pace on the first day when we had some really good times, but after that it got a bit more complicated for us. It was good experience for Finland when I hope we will be ready to challenge for the podium.”

Gus Greensmith (9th RC2 / 7th WRC 2) said:

“I think it’s been a good weekend for us. Friday started really well and I was happy with how I was driving. We weren’t taking any risks but then I got caught out by a mud patch and there wasn’t much we could do about it.

“On Saturday we adopted the same strategy that we had in Sweden – just driving through the stages at 70 percent to learn as much as we could. But to be honest, I got a bit bored with that and had to have a bit of a push every now and then!

“With the rain again today we just eased ourselves back into it over the opening stage, and then collected another stage win.

“Overall it’s been good. The speed is there, but next time I need to show some more consistency and pull it all together for a good result.”

Pedro Heller (11th RC2 / 9th WRC 2) said:

“It’s been a positive weekend for us as we achieved our goals. We’ve seen a big improvement in our times from the previous event and we were very close to the leaders through the opening stages. That was a big step for us and it was a very tricky rally with very difficult conditions.

“In that sense it has been a good weekend and we were very happy to be here. Now we look forward to our next FIA World Rally Championship event which will be at Wales Rally GB.”
