You took one stage win – but what a stage to do it on, the final Power Stage, and valuable extra points for the Drivers' Championship.
We ran this stage once already and the grip was very good. I knew I can do well on this stage and it worked out well.
You mentioned yesterday that you thought you had the wrong set-up from the start?
I have never been so good in Mexico. I made a small mistake with the set-up. Jari-Matti was fast when the road was clean. In the end I am happy for the team with the result.
Jarmo, after the win in Sweden and being first on the road here on Friday was there a sense of frustration that you couldn't keep pace with the Citroëns?
In a way we were surprised and disappointed with our own pace. It is still a tricky rally. It is so easy to make a small mistake. I am happy with this performance. We drive steady and consistently.
Jari-Matti, you take third place away from Mexico. After the time loss on Friday with the puncture, did you expect to be on the podium?
I think it is the first time that you change a tyre on a stage and you can still be there on the podium. I am not sure the last time it happened. Of course, I knew that moment we lost the fight for the victory. I thought if we can get a top five that was the idea for the points. We climbed to fourth and then it looked like it would stay like that for a long time and then Ogier and Loeb were fighting and Ogier went off. This is normal when you fight. This can happen. I have done those mistakes myself! It helped my position.
What is your assessment of your pace throughout the weekend?
I started this rally cautiously and then I started to find a feeling and then we got a puncture and then I started to attack on Saturday. Then I cooled down a little and then I realised on Saturday at midday that something was not right with my driving. I could not keep the car on the lines and I was off the lines. I started to concentrate to keep on the same line and then the times started to improve. That has always been a weakness for me in Mexico.
Now we go to Portugal. What are your feelings on that?
Portugal, for the last two years, I have crashed. I want to finish and I want to finish inside the top three. I am not hoping for too much. A top five I am happy. I will try to keep going with tidy driving.
Miikka, how cautious were you after Ogier retired?
When we got the message on the radio that Ogier has stopped, then I told Jari-Matti to be very steady and get no punctures. It is a difficult situation to drive at recce speed. When you slow down you might make a mistake. You are not concentrating anymore; it is not easy to drive slow.
Olivier, it could have been a Citroën one-two and maximum points, but Ogier crashed on the opening stage today. How disappointed were the team with that news?
