Co-driver: Miikka Anttila

The car felt good in the tests and so our expectations were high. The first three stages were cancelled because of the spectators. We had a lot of trouble in the beginning. A gasket broke in the refuelling and petrol leaked out. That caused our retirement. We continued the driving on Saturday, but the same thing happened again and we retired once more. We continued again on Sunday. The day was excellent, we drove the fastest time in group N on every stage and we were ninth twice in overall. Furthermore we were fifth in group N and got four World Championship points.

42nd in overall, 5th in group N
