- Al Attiyah leads the rally at the end of first loop
- Galatariotis/Ioannou fastest local crew
flash info (4 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): I think we have a good run from the beginning. We are pushing, now we will see because the second loop will be more rough.
flash info (2 - Lukyanuk Alexey / Arnautov Alexey): We are on the safe strategy, we don't fight with Nasser. Saving the car and tyres.
flash info (5 - Herczig Norbert / Ferencz Ramón): This stage was easier than the previous one and the feeling is much better than last year.
flash info (8 - Galatariotis Simos / Ioannou Antonis): Bit too slippery, we ran out of tyres in this one. But it was a plan, so all OK.
flash info (1 - Ingram Chris / Whittock Ross): Very careful start, we have safe strategy.
flash info (6 - Hirvonen Mikko / Ottman Jarno): It was dry and dusty, it has been OK. We have good time, we run smoothly, no problem.
flash info (3 - Habaj Łukasz / Dymurski Daniel): It's very hot, this stage was... We are learning. This was much better then the previous, I took it carefully. It's so hot that stickers on the pedals went off and there is lot of glue on my shoes.
flash info (7 - Mayr-Melnhof Nikolaus / Welsersheimb Poldi): Now there was no issue, it was cool stage and we pushed, super stage without any problems.
flash info (18 - Fernàndez Emilio / Coronado Axel): Really tricky, but really nice stage. We enjoyed it a lot. The car looks OK.
flash info (14 - Nobre Paulo / Morales Gabriel): Not easy, the tyres are not like in the morning, so the car is sliding little bit.
flash info (12 - Al-Kuwari Abdulaziz / Clarke Marshall): Not really good loop, something is with the car, maybe bad setup, maybe the suspension is wrong.
flash info (11 - Al-Rashed Rakan / Magalhães Hugo): We were opening the road this morning. Now we go to service to fix the throttle. It is hard to control the car with this.
flash info (16 - Kurka Tomáš / Janovská Kateřina): We are second on the road so it's hard. We did few mistakes, we were out of the road.
flash info (15 - Yiangou Panayiotis / Kyriacou Panayiotis): We clean the road, it's lose everywhere, grip nothing. After service we start to push.
(16 - Kurka Tomáš / Janovská Kateřina): out of the road
