“What an incredible weekend. I have to say from the start of the weekend I felt really comfortable with the car – it’s amazing when you have the car in your hands like this, you feel you do exactly what you want.”

“This Polo responds perfectly to what I ask and knowing I have a car like that under me gives such confidence. It’s also exactly what we need in rallycross when you have to change direction so quickly, you need everything to be working like this – it needs to be like the glove on your hand and that’s what we had this weekend.”

“This is such a nice race, I love to win here. OK, Sweden is my home, but I live close [to here] and this victory is nice, but at the same time the 30 points is even more important.”

“What we have to say again here is that this was another fantastic performance from PSRX Volkswagen Sweden. We had the strategy and it worked well – the final was quite OK when we came out of the first corner P1 and two. It’s fantastic to have my team-mate with me on the podium.”

“This was a good weekend, it was what I needed to come back from a bit of a disappointment in Silverstone.”

“The final was a bit crazy – or at least the first corner was. I got off the line really well, but after that when I got to the bend, the cars were everywhere and I was sure I would hit one of them or take some damage. But I got away, I got through and then I drove to my plan.”

“There’s not much more I could have done this weekend, to get the podium is what I needed. It would have been nice to be one-two with Johan, but third is good; it’s a strong, strong result for the team and to see PSRX Volkswagen Sweden moving clear at the top is really important.”

“The one thing I have to say again is a big thank you to all the fans. They are always incredible when we come here, but this time they were even more. If I had the time I would go to thank every one of them, but I think they are a little bit too much!”
