The pace was fairly hectic this morning after the re-start with Robert Kubica fighting to hold on to third place but he dropped to fourth on the first stage of the day.
"We were a bit unlucky on the long stage [SS7] – I think that the tyre pressures we opted for were a bit too low,” said Kubica, “We thought that the conditions would be drying. We set some really good times in the beginning when the tyre temperature was good, but then there was some really heavy rain. The surface became really slippery and there was a lot of aquaplaning. We lost a lot of time there, but I still have to be pleased because the pace was very good.”
Sadly on the ninth test, the Lotos Ford left the road and he’s out.
