SS6 – Typical Loeb!

SS6 – Typical Loeb!

07/04/2018

Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena clinched their second stage win on the bounce. They’re really head and shoulders above their rivals this morning. Despite clipping a pavement at the start of the stage, Kris Meeke is still in the mix for second place in his battle with Thierry Neuville. The only change of note in the top 10 concerns Dani Sordo. The Spaniard has moved up to sixth that he shares with Elfyn Evans as the two drivers are on level pegging after six stages.

3. BRYAN BOUFFIER/XAVIER PANSERI
“It was completely dry, and it’s a great stage. We’re very happy with the way things are turning out.”

4. ANDREAS MIKKELSEN/ANDERS JAEGER
“My car’s understeering. It’s been the worst stage so far for the car and our set-ups.”

7. JARI-MATTI LATVALA/MIIKKA ANTILA
“The car’s running pretty well, but we’ve got problems at the rear as our brakes keep locking up.”

6. DANI SORDO/CARLOS DEL BARRIO
“The stage is very quick so I was able to push hard. But the balance of the car isn’t very good.”

2. ELFYN EVANS/PHIL MILLS
“Not a great stage to be honest. I didn’t really go for it in some of the quick sections.”

9. ESAPEKKA LAPPI/JANNE FERM
“It’s much better than yesterday. We did a lot of work with the team and I’m happy to see that it’s paying off.”

8. OTT TÄNAK/MARTIN JÄRVEOJA
“It’s a very quick stage where you don’t need to use the brakes very much. We didn’t have any problems.”

10. KRIS MEEKE/PAUL NAGLE
“I thought I’d punctured at the start of the stage after I clipped a pavement; afterwards it wasn’t too bad.”

5. THIERRY NEUVILLE/NICOLAS GILSOUL
“The car’s very unstable. These roads really don’t suit it.”

1. SEBASTIEN OGIER/JULIEN INGRASSIA
“It’s a new stage. I was pretty quick even if it was my first time on it. I trust my notes.”

11. SEBASTIEN LOEB/ DANIEL ELENA
“We set a good time. It really is a pity about yesterday. Now we’re here to enjoy ourselves.”

40. YOANN BONATO/BENJAMIN BOULLOUD
“It’s better than yesterday. Our brake problem is partially solved. It’s not perfect but let’s hope it holds for the rest of the rally.”
