"We completed the stage without losing too much time. We only conceded a minute to 'Séb', so we'll start in a decent position tomorrow. We had no punctures today, the car was just perfect and Mathieu navigated well. We're getting there, little by little. I said I didn't want to take risks, I simply want to set a high pace. Finishing one minute down on 'Séb' in a stage like today or yesterday's is great. It's not over yet, there are still two days to go and even a podium spot will be hard to get. We've been thinking of victory since day one. We're not here to win stages. Last year we took seven and finished second, this time round we've only claimed two and we're in the lead."
