FIESTA R5 QUOTES, 2017 RALLYE DEUTSCHLAND, SECTION EIGHT

Éric Camilli (1st WRC 2) said:

“I’m so happy with this result and I really need to say a massive thank you to the team who have done an amazing job all weekend.

“It was a bit of a stressful start, but the team did a fantastic job and we were able to fight back and have a really good battle with Jan.

“When he picked up a puncture, it was all about controlling the lead and that is exactly what we did. Thank you again to the team and also to Benji for this win.”

Pierre-Louis Loubet (5th WRC 2) said:

“It has not been a bad weekend for us and I think we can be happy. We were unlucky to get a puncture yesterday and without that it would have been a really strong result.

“We took a lot of pleasure from these stages and the car has felt really good all weekend. I feel like we’re improving all the time, we just need to pull all of the small details together.”

Teemu Suninen (7th WRC 2) said:

“At the end of the weekend I think I can be happy. We finished the rally, improved our pace and learnt a lot about how to read the road and where to expect all the mud and gravel. The result may have been a little disappointing, but still we were really close to the top times and I think next year we will come back stronger and able to secure a good result.”

Jon Armstrong (14th WRC 2) said:

“All in all I would say that it has been a pretty good event for us. After what happened on Friday we managed to pick up the pace and just got better and better.

“We’re starting to understand the technique needed for these R5 cars and we were able to set a first and third fastest time which I was really pleased with on my first time in a four-wheel-drive car.

“Our next outing will be in Spain and I’m looking forward to that. We’ll have to learn again the technique for gravel, but we can take everything we learnt this weekend and apply that to the Tarmac stages.”
