Co-driver Miikka Anttila.
Two first special stages were the hardest and most slippery in whole rally. We started truly slowly and yet we saw two cars off road and that increased my insecurity about driving. Times were bad. Luckily we moved to drier special stages and then grip started to be better as well as times.
My best drive ever. I made only couple of small mistakes. Once we hit a log and once we ran wide in corner.
We could not improve our performance anymore, so we drove stages carefully to finish.
