Australia: Quoteboard

"Matthew has put in a strong performance on this new rally, especially on the second and third days when he set some very competitive times. He's collected another top-six after coming out on top of the team battle with Henning on the final day. Henning has made a great fight back after his problems today and it's extremely positive for both crews to have completed all of the competitive distance on this rally and got experience of the new roads and difficult conditions."


Andrew Tinkler [Stobart Group - CEO]:

"We've seen a great Stobart team battle over the last couple of days and the guys have performed well and benefitted from the experience of the new stages. This was always going to be a challenging event in the unknown conditions but they have taken charge of the situation and collected more important points for the championship."


Mario Isola [Pirelli - rally manager]:

"I don't remember ever seeing a rally that has been this closely contested between title rivals, underlining the durability and equality of our tyres. The Pirelli Scorpion gravel tyres also worked well on the all-asphalt Tweed superspecial stage, which was used no fewer than six times and formed a notable proportion of the competitive action. Despite some sections that were as rough as the classic Mediterranean gravel rallies, we encountered no major problems with punctures - which has set up a thrilling finale to the season."
