Xavier Pons
"I enjoy but today not good not feeling, very slippery, but 5th its a good results"

Daniel Sordo
"Slippery and fast, very good, I like this rally."

Marcus Gronholm
"Its good, its a good feeling. My first year with Ford to finish one point behind Seb. We have to try next year again"

Petter Solberg
"We had really good fun, we had a puncture this morning, we could have been up to second place. I'm looking forward to next year. Its been tough for everybody. Thats life."

Chris Atkinson
"Okay its not ideal but its been a tough rally, we got to the end. It been a tough year. The whole team has worked their butts off and we want to pay them back next year"

Manfred Stohl
"Very nice and I'm quite pleased with the season. 16 events with no retirements, the most reliable car I have driven in my life."

Henning Solberg
"I'm here. I promise you I will try my best for you next year. Next year I will be in a totally orange car with BF tyres the best tyres"

Matthew Wilson
"This last stage here the wipers stopped working, it was really really difficult we had to lift off you couldn't see the side of the road. Yesterday when the conditions were good we were able to go at a good speed. (Next year) Its going to be so much easier going back to these places for the second time."

Jari-Matti Latvala
"This was a very important rally for me, if I think about my career. This (4th overall) will make my life a little bit easier for next year. I have screwed up three times this year with the Stobart cars, but finally we were able to come through it"

Harri Rovanpera
"Finally we found the right set-up last night in service."

Francois Duval
"I am very happy a really good for Skoda and for me. Yesterday some very good times. Today the road is very slippery with no testing, is very difficult for me"

Jan Kopecky
"We are pleased to finish this rally. (Next year) I hope so, I would like to continue with Skoda"

Mats Ostberg
"Its been a really difficult rally for me, just had a lot of bad luck. We lost our rear boot on the stage before this one. Thats how it is, thats rally, this cars needs a full rebuild now. I am very happy with the times. I am glad to finish for the rally."
