Rally Sweden - Post-event press conference

Jost, the first win for Volkswagen and the Polo R WRC on only the second round of the Championship. Did you think it would come so soon?

Jost Capito:
I had this great dream, which was to sit here with the guys next year! Nobody could expect this. We expect it even less than people outside. We came here to learn, it's the second rally. This is the fantastic result. Normally rallies are up and down, but we had no downs. It was unbelievable.

Q:
Could you imagine such dominance?

Jost Capito:
We all know Sebastien [Ogier] is capable of the pace, but I didn't know he could do it already with the Polo.

Q:
And what about Jari-Matti? Has he impressed you?

Jost Capito:
Yes. He is lacking a lot of mileage. He has to learn to drive and get the settings for himself. We were constantly changing the settings. This was the best way for him to learn that. He had a great day today and got some great confidence.

Q:
What's been reaction to this in Volkswagen HQ?

Jost Capito:
They don't have words for this
