Driver / co-driver: Sebastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia (Citroen C2 S1600).

Press conference.

Sebastien, your third win of the season, extending your lead in the Drivers Championship. It's been a great event for you.

Sebastien Ogier:
Yes, for sure it was a very good week for us. We kept the lead of the Championship and now we need to finish in Catalunya.

It was a good battle between you and Martin Prokop. Were you on the maximum to catch him?

Julien Ingrassia:
It was a good battle, we enjoyed it. On Saturday morning, we showed that we could be faster than him and we would have liked him to finish. Anyway, it was a good fight.

When he retired there was a big gap behind you so you didn't need to push. Was it difficult to find a rhythm when you didn't have to fight?

At the start of the rally, it was a good battle with Martin which I would have liked to continue, but he had a problem. After he had that problem, it was easier for us. We didn't take any risks after that.

What do you have to do in Spain to clinch the title?

We know that we have to win there to win the title, but it won't be easy as all the drivers will be there.

There have been a lot of obvious comparisons between you and S?bastien Loeb - it must feel good to be compared to a World Champion?

I like it, because to be compared to the Champion is an honour for me, but I have to continue working and learn at every rally. In the future, I hope to have the same success, but it will be difficult as S?bastien is a great driver.
