Lukasz Pieniazek (3rd WRC 2 Pro) said:

“We’ve struggled quite a lot today. I think it was a combination of a lot of things. The pacenotes weren’t quite perfect, and the car wasn’t exactly as I’d like it. It’s also my first event with a new co-driver which takes some getting used to. But I need to forget this now and reset my mind for tomorrow. Tomorrow’s stages suit me better. I know them well, and we will try to drive much faster than today.”

Alberto Heller (8th WRC 2) said:

“It was a very difficult day. After the crash in Chile I was missing a bit of confidence, but we improved after every stage and finished the day with some good pace. I’m happy to be here on my first gravel event in Europe, and I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”

‘Pedro’ (16th WRC 2) said:

“It’s been a very hot and very long day, but also a beautiful day here in Portugal. It’s been incredible for everyone who came to watch and we had a great day – no problems and the car was perfect.”
