Rocky roads and hot weather demanded the suspension and the tires a lot. Last year our team reached one-two positions by driving wisely. That was the tactics this year, too. The race started well because I was the fastest but when the roads got worse I was unable to keep my pace compared to the fastest cars. Our whole team was in the same situation. My times were good if the roads were smooth but on coarse roads the gap became larger. On stage five I had a puncture and I lost 50 seconds. On stage there was rain and the roads were slippery. With hard tires the other Toyotas and I were far behind the lead. On Friday we realized that our car didn’t work on rocky conditions. I was ninth after Friday. On Saturday the situation was the same and we lost time when driving on rocky roads. All I could do was to concentrate on driving smoothly, without mistakes and waiting for others to make those mistakes. Tänak had to retire due to electric problems and Thierry Neuville drove off the road a bit. I caught Kris Meeke by driving and reached the sixth position. On Sunday I took it safe and drove to the finish without any risks and on power stage I tried a bit harder and got two extra points. So I was sixth overall. Ogier won, Esapekka was second (one-two for Citroen) Andreas Mikkelsen was the best Hyundai. He was third.
