Rally GB - Post-event press conference

Marc, congratulations on what is your seventh podium this year. Looking back at your season, what has been the highlight for you?

Marc Marti:
I think it has been the increased confidence (for Dani). It's very important for a young driver when things happen very fast to be confident with the car and himself. Confidence gives you the ability to win.

Olivier, the Manufacturer and now the Drivers' Championship after what has been an incredible battle – great for Citroën but also great for the sport.

Olivier Quesnel:
Well yes, because for Citroën we have won both Championships. This time it was really hard because after Greece we had some problems with the team and so we had to come back and in Spain get first and second, and Seb and Dani did it. We knew that Mikko would be going really fast but Seb needed to win the rally, which he did. He was amazing on the eighth and ninth stage. How he did it I don't know, but it was really amazing. So we are very pleased and I am very proud of the whole team. For Citroën it is really a great day.

Question from the floor.

Q: Gareth Rhys Owen (BBC Wales).
The announcement came this morning that the rally will come back to Wales next year. What is your reaction Sébastien?

If I win again then I am very happy! For me it has always been a good rally here, with good stages. I am always happy to come here. For me it is perfect.
