DRIVERS' QUOTES AFTER DAY 1
 
#21 Timmy Hansen – 3rd
 
“The first day here in Silverstone has been really good: I got the win in Q2 with a great run and I was really enjoying driving the car: our Peugeot 208 WRX feels very easy and great to drive here. At the moment we’re third overall, but obviously it’s the main race on Sunday that really counts. Tomorrow it seems very likely that there will be some rain, so obviously we have to go into ‘smooth mode’ if that’s the case and change everything to adapt the car to wet conditions. But hopefully we can still fight for the win whatever happens.”
 
#9 Sébastien Loeb – 5th
 
“A medium day for me, I would say. The car was good but during the first heat I made a mistake behind someone, then during the second heat it was a messy start and I got stuck in traffic. Because of all that, I’m seventh overall tonight but there are two more qualifying sessions tomorrow and I hope we have a clean run through them. We know that’s possible. The car is good and it’s also fast, so everything is ready to go. I just need to have a clean start and take it from there. Let’s see what happens tomorrow.”
 
#71 Kevin Hansen – 7th
 
“I had a really good day and enjoyed the track very much: the grip has increased quite a lot. I think my rhythm was good and the speed was there as well. I just made a small mistake in Q2, when I was second behind Timmy, but it’s been a good first day and I’m very excited to drive on this track. Tomorrow it looks like we will have some thunderstorms and it could be wet and dry on and off. We will just have to be ready for anything that shows up and tackle it the best way that we can.”
