ORB statements Friday night

június 25, 2021

Mads Ostberg-Torstein Eriksen (Citroen C3 Rally2): It was very interesting and difficult to speed in the dark. It was very slippery, foggy and humid in many places. But I am very happy that we have completed this section and are leading! It was a good start for us!

Grzegorz Gryzb-Kamil Kozdron (Skoda Fabia Rally2 EVO): It was incredibly fast as Armageddon! I didn’t expect it to slide so much! Two years ago, when we were here, it only fell at night. I remembered it was slippery, but that, so much! I made a lot of mistakes, I went slowly and carefully. I also told my navigator that we just need to get in and we’ll see what we start tomorrow. However, I am happy that our time has not become so bad and we are fighting for victory.

András Hadik-Krisztián Kertész (Ford Fiesta R5 MK II): The section was interesting, the water evaporates in one or two places, the speed was foggy, we didn’t always see it perfectly. We tried to go safely but quickly, and from time to time we succeeded.


Attila Miklós-Nagy Csomós (Skoda Fabia R5): It was clearly about survival today. We vacillated between the slick and the wet rubber, we decided well to put the wet on in the end. We didn’t expect it to be so dirty, the road joked us in a place or two. We are 4-5 seconds from the start, nothing has been decided yet, tomorrow will be long. We hope the track dries and there will be no more rain!


László Frigyes-Bagaméri Turán (Volkswagen Polo R5): I can see very badly with this lamp, I didn’t see the application and we slipped in. We hit the back, the exhaust came off and then we were afraid the car wouldn’t light up, the bumper even melted a bit. After that, we could no longer drive at the pace we wanted, we lost at least twenty seconds compared to the others.

Róbert Bútor-Tagai Róbert (Citroen C3 WRC): It was a lot for us! We don’t have rain tires for this race, we had to go intermediate. It was raining, after that I didn’t even know where I was! We had to go very slowly and so we got three “gifts”. I’m not crying back this fast at all, that’s enough of that!
