“For our first tarmac event of the season, it was never going to be an easy one but we have made progress. We have worked a lot on improving our feeling with the car, the driving style and adapting to the varied tarmac stages that we face here in Germany. We have taken some steps over the course of this weekend but it’s still not perfect. On the Power Stage, we just took it at a comfortable pace, making no mistakes and just doing what we needed to keep Ogier behind us on the overall classification.”

After 19 stages through the Mosel Vineyards, Saarland countryside and the Baumholder Military area, Andreas finished 6th O/A in his Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC, just behind his team-mates Thierry Neuville (4th) and Dani Sordo (5th).
