Rallye Monte-Carlo, Midday Quotes, Day 1

Elfyn Evans (5th) said:

“It seems we made the right choice with the tyres this morning. It certainly didn’t feel great coming down the hill [on SS3], but we can all see the benefit the snow tyres brought in terms of time. It was a good choice, and just a shame that the first stage caught us by surprise because then it could have been even better! But I don’t think anyone predicted what was in store for us on SS1 – it came at such short notice.

“It’s been a difficult but good start for us. Obviously the conditions are some of the most challenging that I have ever had to contend with, but we’ve had great information from both the ice note crew and the team and I am really enjoying every minute of it!”

Mikko Hirvonen (13th) said:

“Well, this has certainly been one of the most difficult starts to a season that we have ever had! Like everyone, we weren’t expecting the amount of snow that there was this morning, and with slick tyres, it gives you some really tricky conditions.

“Of course I am really happy that we are still here, but we need to look into the weather and make sure that we are well prepared for this afternoon. If there is more slush and snow then it will definitely be easier for the cars behind, but that is just the way it is and we need to make it through.”


Bryan Bouffier (1st) said:

“We hit a wall at the beginning of the first stage and I really thought that my race was finished! Thankfully, the car is very strong. We went through the first stage on slick tyres, which was the same for most of the drivers. I admit that it wasn’t so fun in those conditions, but our time wasn’t so bad. I wasn’t so happy with my driving on the second stage, but for the third we had our snow tyress and were able to set a really good time.

“I was a bit frustrated when I saw the snow in the first stage and knew that I had two snow tyres in the boot, but that is just the way it is and it was the same for everyone. For now, we will just stay cool and try to keep the consistency.”
