Henk Lategan – Stage 7 – ENG

"The car is going very well. Our top speed is not the best, but in the bumpy sections we have a good car that handles rocky terrain quite well. We had a nice duel between four or five cars near the end of the special, we even got a little lost. It was a fun day. We punctured on the second turn and I thought it was a bad start, but things started to look up from then on. We drove with Chicherit before overtaking him and opening, and we ended up in a bunch in the dust at the end. It was tricky, but we had a blast. The car is fine, we weren't too reckless."
