Meanwhile, Carlos Magalhães considered that «the day started well, but for the second passages we changed the tires and the suspension, but the effectiveness is no longer the same as we had been in the morning».

For Manfred Stohl, the Team Director, «the balance is very positive and I have only to regret the mistake of the first day, which should not have happened.

But yesterday and today I was very pleased with the work done by Daniel, who throughout the rally was always improving the times, which is a good indication for the future».

Future that takes place in the Tour of Corsica within 15 days.
