"I wasn't happy with my brakes this afternoon though and I think this cost us some valuable time. We're going to change the ride height for tomorrow but everything else will just depend on the conditions in the morning."
F1 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen incidentally, was able to re-join the fold this morning under the SupeRally, and having started in 26th he has hauled himself back up to 14th, posting an eighth quickest time and two sixths this afternoon.
"The entire team did a great job [to fix my car]. This morning my Citroen
C4 WRC was as good as new and we were able to drive at our usual speed in order to accumulate all the kilometres that we need to make progress," said Kimi.
"On the last two stages I pushed a bit more on soft tyres. Tomorrow we'll try to get back into the top 10 even though I think we're a bit far off still. It's going to be interesting, whatever happens!"
In the JWRC, Thierry Neuville still leads in his Citroen
C2 S1600, 51.1 seconds up on Hans Weijs. Yeray Lemes completes the Junior top three.
The action now continues on Sunday and the final leg includes 94.5 competitive kilometres split over two loops of two stages. SS11, the 29.53 kilometre-run through Muhovo 1, begins at 08.46 hours local time.
