When we saw Björn and Mathias standing outside their car waving OK we were relieved but the thought came to me ‘If that can happen to Björn, I had better be careful’. Thus we drove very steadily for the rest of that section. Perhaps we lost some one and half minutes but it felt better that way. But the last two sections were perfect for us so we had a bit of a go and got those fastest times so that we are now within two minutes of Stig. And our BMA car feels in really good condition – so we try to keep it that way.
1, Björn Waldegård/Mathias Waldegård, Porsche 911: They say we were quickest on the long stage today. Well, we have to show them that we are not giving up! No problems with the car, which is going really well. And one good thing is that Mathias, who has been suffering from motion sickness almost from the start has now found his ‘rally legs’ and he was able to fully enjoy the long stage.
