Service E – Coffs Harbour
“It was difficult for us – it was our first time being first on the road. I learned a lot today and I had a big moment but we are here now.”
Car 4. STEPHANE LEFEBVRE/STEPHANE PREVOT
“Very happy to end the day with the lead and I will have the best starting position tomorrow. Today the road position was bad with the sweeping while the guys behind me had a lot of dust. I still have to do the work tomorrow but the anticipation for the championship is great.”
Car 1. SEBASTIEN OGIER/JULIEN INGRASSIA
“Need to push tomorrow as there is no choice if I want to catch Ogier. Meeke and Mikkelsen will be very strong tomorrow as well. Today the afternoon grip was fine – much better than in the morning. Tomorrow the stages for me will be better – I will push, I won’t just let him (Ogier) win.”
Car 2. JARI-MATTI LATVALA/MIKKA ANTTILA
“It was very dusty in the trees and we were going at 200km/h in sixth gear with very big trees beside us. I have to go flat-out tomorrow if I want to win – and am at a disadvantage as I have not done tomorrow’s stages flat-out but the others have.”
Car 9. ANDREAS MIKKELSEN/OLA FLOENE
“It was a perfect day for me as there wasn’t much we more we could do given our road position. One section in the long stage this morning I lost five seconds – otherwise I had a good fast run. Tomorrow we should have a better road position so the fight with Dani should be easier.”
Car 7. THIERRY NEUVILLE/NICOLAS GILSOUL
“I think the character of the stages to be a lot happier when the going is fast and flowing – we don’t have so much of a problem. Obviously when it gets tight, twisty and narrow I struggle a lot more and therefore the times have been better today – although they aren’t where we want them. I am still not where I want to be – we have a lot of work to do.”
Car 5. ELFYN EVANS/DANIEL BARRITT
“Everything is excellent – I want every stage to be at night. I said enough before the stage. Here we are after day two just 0.3sec behind. We made a little mistake with the tyres and 15sec went missing this morning but happy with my afternoon. Tomorrow we all know what is like when it is a level playing field – I have done my best with the road position I had.”
Car 3. KRIS MEEKE/PAUL NAGLE
“Today was actually quite good and a big improvement on yesterday. We managed to improve and have been enjoying today. Also the long one was enjoyable and in places was really fast. The last stage was tough being in the dust and dark – so not so enjoyable.”
Car 6. OTT TANAK/RAIGO MOLDER
“Today was a little more difficult than yesterday. We had a problem with the rear brakes in the long stage this morning and I lost a lot of time there. In the last stage it was quite difficult with all the dust – so was not so easy. Now we will make changes to the setup as the stages are completely different to today’s.”
Car 20. DANI SORDO/MARC MARTI
“It has been a good day, especially after the few issues of yesterday. This morning was good and while we had an advantage with the road position we were still able to set some good times. This afternoon was looking good until we ran out of front tyres with 20km to go in the long stage. In general I am happy with how today has gone. In the night stage we just drove to the conditions – it wasn’t too bad, the five minute gap was the right thing to do. Tomorrow we want to stay in the top-five. We want to get a podium but in saying that we are less than 20sec from the leaders – so it is still quite close – I am happy with the margin. We just have to stay within reach of the leaders – you never know what could happen.”
Car 8. HAYDEN PADDON/JOHN KENNARD
“Today in the morning in the long stage we had a problem with the gearbox and only had rear-wheel-drive – which is why we lost a lot of time. The afternoon was really good and the gap to Yurii is better and we are 14sec in front of him. Tomorrow we will try to stay at the same speed – we can’t afford any mistakes.”
Car 39. NASSER AL-ATTIYAH/MATHIEU BAUMEL
“For me it is no problem that Nasser is first and I am second. I like this rally and I like Australia also so for me it is important to be able to drive and get to the finish. Tomorrow we will try to push and see what happens.”
Car 38. YURII PROTASOV/PAVLO CHEREPIN
Saturday 2015 - SS 12 – Valla II
“We lost time in the dark on the gravel. For today it was a good day for us. It was a big challenge being first on the road.”
Car 4. STEPHANE LEFEBVRE/STEPHANE PREVOT
“I was a bit worried with the dust but it was okay. Not a good run for me, it was very slippery and I didn’t find the optimum rhythm – there is still a lot of cleaning to be done. Let’s see about tomorrow now.”
Car 1. SEBASTIEN OGIER/JULIEN INGRASSIA
“We ran wide in one place – pushed a bit too hard and lost time making mistakes. There was some dust but I was able to manage it. Tomorrow I have to be 100% that is very very important. Of course I want to fight for the win.”
Car 2. JARI-MATTI LATVALA/MIKKA ANTTILA
“Was really hard to see. Also my lights were pointed too far down. When I accelerate they lift up but dip too low on braking. Not easy – lots of big trees everywhere and not easy to push when it was like that.”
Car 9. ANDREAS MIKKELSEN/OLA FLOENE
“Just dangerous with the dust – I even turned my lights off at times. For the guys behind it will be hard – it will penalise them. The guys in front will be okay.”
Car 7. THIERRY NEUVILLE/NICOLAS GILSOUL
“It just broke away from me while flat in sixth gear, and I couldn’t recover. Really lucky to be honest. It was a massive moment. No – it wasn’t due to dust.”
Car 5. ELFYN EVANS/DANIEL BARRITT
“We are through. Yesterday afternoon we had a few minor issues and today – I had been enjoying today.”
Car 6. OTT TANAK/RAIGO MOLDER
“Wasn’t as good today and lost a lot of time in the stages. I will fight tomorrow – even though they will be new stages for me again.”
Car 20. DANI SORDO/MARC MARTI
“It hasn’t been a bad afternoon but we burned out our tyres halfway through the long stage. Now we have a bald tyre and the car keeps trying to switch ends under braking. We won’t be able to catch the guys ahead on pace alone. We’ll just try and keep our speed and keep the pressure on. We’re 20 seconds behind, but that is just a spin or a stall.”
Car 8. HAYDEN PADDON/JOHN KENNARD
“In the morning we lost a lot of time with the gearbox but the afternoon has been much better. We try and stay in front of Protasov and we’ll see tomorrow. I think it will be a good day for us.”
Car 39. NASSER AL-ATTIYAH/MATHIEU BAUMEL
“We will see how it feels tomorrow. Feeling good after today.”
Car 38. YURIY PROTASOV/PAVLO CHEREPIN
“A very good day but in this stage we didn’t have anything to push for. Very good pace in some stages and a few mistakes – but we know where we made them.”
Car 40. ABDULAZIZ AL-KUWARI/MARSHALL CLARKE
“Giant big spin in there – in fourth gear. Couldn’t see anything with our lights – pretty scary in there with this car. First time in 17 years I’ve driven in the dark like this.”
Car 42. SCOTT PEDDER/DALE MOSCATT
“I reckon it was a fantastic stage. The camera flashes were a new experience. I had a good run although a lot of dust at the start but I got to the end and had a ball.”
Car 44. NATHAN QUINN/DAVID CALDER
“Not easy as there was a lot of dust in places. Some places it was clean and others it was quite dusty. No big problems today and looking good for tomorrow.”
Car 43. GIANLUCA LINARI/NICOLA ARENA
“That was tough – I haven’t done a night in six years. Challenging in the dust but I enjoyed it. A little bit slower but we’ve got to be happy with the result.”
Car 73. ELI EVANS/GLEN WESTON
“The dust was tricky – short bits of dust. I didn’t take any risks. We really really enjoyed Nambucca even though there was a bit of dust in the second run through but I was happy with my driving. We can only do what we can do in the car and we won’t be taking any risks as we want to finish.”
Car 75. MOLLY TAYLOR/BILL HAYES
Saturday 2015 - SS 11 – Nambucca II
“It was better on the second pass; it was not easy but better.”
Car 4. STEPHANE LEFEBVRE/STEPHANE PREVOT
“It was difficult to be honest. I tried; I tried hard but suffered from a lack of grip. I tried my best. In the wide section I was sliding a bit too much. Not perfect and when you try too hard it can be like that.”
Car 1. SEBASTIEN OGIER/JULIEN INGRASSIA
“The important thing is we are in the game and still fighting. I can’t get the rhythm right in that stage – it was hard but I did what I could.”
Car 2. JARI-MATTI LATVALA/MIKKA ANTTILA
“It is more difficult to drive, a lot more dust and like driving in to a wall so had to slow down in places. Not as perfect as this morning but still a good run. To drive faster in this dust would be tricky.”
Car 9. ANDREAS MIKKELSEN/OLA FLOENE
“It went pretty well for me and had a pretty good stage. Things are a lot more comfortable for me and I could push quite hard.”
Car 7. THIERRY NEUVILLE/NICOLAS GILSOUL
“I just can’t find a comfortable place with the car – I don’t know. I‘m understeering, oversteering – and struggling with it. I just can’t seem to get the car to do what I want. I’m not saying it’s the car’s fault – it is totally mine.”
Car 5. ELFYN EVANS/DANIEL BARRITT
“I am trying to learn my rhythm. I did feel comfortable in there although had no idea how well we’d gone until we got to the end of the stage.”
Car 3. KRIS MEEKE/PAUL NAGLE
“I was aggressive in the beginning and thought I would lose tyre grip so had to back off. One more stage to go.”
Car 6. OTT TANAK/RAIGO MOLDER
“It was okay. Been too hot for the tyres and there was a lot of dust in the middle of the stage. Better than this morning.”
Car 20. DANI SORDO/MARC MARTI
“Completely lost the tyres with about 15km to go and couldn’t control the car. Then we had a gear shift problem in the last few km’s when it was selecting gears itself.”
Car 8. HAYDEN PADDON/JOHN KENNARD
“The car is working very very well. In the morning we broke a piece in the gearbox and had rear-wheel-drive. Now we can push and am quite happy with the performance. Am looking forward to the night time stage.”
Car 39. NASSER AL-ATTIYAH/MATHIEU BAUMEL
“It was okay. We are pushing. All day we are happy with our pace – it is much better than yesterday. We are looking forward to a good battle tomorrow.”
Car 38. YURII PROTASOV/PAVLO CHEREPIN
“I think we did a fast time but not enough. The tyres were moving a lot at the end of the stage and I thought we had a flat. There was a lot of dust – even with a three minute gap that was still a lot of dust – but it was okay.”
Car 40. ABDULAZIZ AL-KUWARI/MARSHALL CLARKE
“Quite conservative as nothing to prove today. The tyres were good for the first 20km but we had to conserve them as they could be a problem if we didn’t look after them.”
Car 42. SCOTT PEDDER/DALE MOSCATT
“We are just having fun with it. We’ve got nothing to catch in front and nothing to catch us from behind so are just doing our thing.”
Car 44. NATHAN QUINN/DAVID CALDER
“It was okay. It was a very long stage and glad to see the finish. I think we did better this afternoon though – we had a better feeling with the car.”
Car 43. GIANLUCA LINARI/NICOLA ARENA
“The stage was a lot faster. We are here and not had any flat tyres and managed to take 20sec off the other two-wheel-drive cars so that’s a job done for us for the day.”
Car 73. ELI EVANS/GLEN WESTON
“It felt better. A lot of dust in places and nearly had to come to a stop which was a bit frustrating. We were faster though.”
Car 75. MOLLY TAYLOR/BILL HAYES
