Rally of Turkey - Post-event press conference

Yeah, why not? On this rally they were quite short sections, there was nothing we could do with the car. It was a good idea. Maybe going with gravel tyres and gravel suspension, the speed was very high and the car was moving a lot, so maybe it's not the safest option, but it was okay.

Your team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala had a problem on this event. Did that put more pressure on you?

No, we were here for the win. It happened to Jari-Matti, we didn't think so much [about it] – we carried on with our rally.

Olivier, the third win of the season for Citroën. It could have been maximum points for the Manufacturers' Championship but Dani Sordo failed to complete stage 21, what happened?

Olivier Quesnel:
I don't know exactly for Dani, but everybody got the problem in the same place. Dani had a big problem and he stays there. He tried to go up the road, the cars which came after bump on him. Honestly, it's not his fault, so I can't say anything to him.

Sébastien Ogier led the rally for a large part of the event, what have you thought of his performance this weekend?

I think he is really good and I'm sure he can drive for the victory. I don't think in New Zealand, he's never been there and maybe not on tarmac - even though he is a French driver, he doesn't know tarmac very well. He still has to make progress – we will see for next year.
