    Jari-Matti Latvala, Volkswagen Polo R WRC #2

    “First and foremost, we would like to wish Stéphane Lefebvre and Gabin Moreau a good recovery and hope they are back in good health soon. Today was predominantly about the weather and tyre selection. It was very wet in places in the morning, and then it kept raining on and off. After I only managed to complete seven kilometres, I took a while to find my rhythm. We were still able to win a stage, even though we are well down the overall standings. Tomorrow I will try to pick up a few points.”

    Jost Capito, Volkswagen Motorsport Director
    “An extremely tricky day at the Rally Germany, but one that all three Volkswagen duos dealt with well. Tyre selection was far from easy, as the changing conditions out on the route did not really give any indication as to what would be the best choice. Andreas Mikkelsen got lucky on one occasion, Sébastien Ogier on another. Seb also drove extremely well on the Panzerplatte – he deserves his lead. Andreas also produced a strong driving display and has a thrilling finale ahead of him tomorrow. If he drives as well as he did today, I am sure he will come out on top in the three-way battle for second. Jari-Matti Latvala could not really hope for much on his return under Rally2 regulations – for him, tomorrow is solely about scoring points on the Power Stage and towards the Manufacturers’ Championship.”
