New Zealand - Pre-event press conference

For the moment I am happy with the start to the season and I think we did a good job with no mistakes at all and some good results. I think my score in the Championship could be better actually, but, okay, it doesn't really matter for me so much – the most important thing is to get the experience to finish with maximum points on the rally. Now I am closer and closer to my rivals.

Q:
Strategically, you have helped Citroën, sometimes spoiling your own chances of getting on the podium. How frustrating is that to lose out after working so hard during an event?

SO:
For sure. At that moment it was a very big deal, as for certain I was very close to fighting for my first victory or maybe fighting for a podium. It was very special to us at that moment, but after a few days I understand that it was important for me to respect Citroen as a team and it is quite normal to help the team, so maybe it is part of learning.

Q:
Sébastien, talking about the 2011 Championship calendar, what do you think of the inclusion of the rallies next year?

SL:
To be honest I didn't check – and I don't know what rallies we do next year so I can't tell you.

J-ML:
Well, it looks good. Good rallies. I was maybe hoping for a second winter rally as well. It would be good to have two winter rallies.
