Lead driver Petter Solberg said: "It's the first snow rally this year and I'm looking forward to it. We need to drive very differently here, so it's about who can adapt. There are always a lot of fans there and it's great to have their support. We've won here before but it's so, so tricky you never know what can happen. We'll go there and drive our own rally, push as hard as we can, and see what happens. We can't do any more than that, and I hope we can have another good finish. It's about being fast but not making any mistakes."
"We're approaching Sweden much the same way as we did Monte Carlo - we go there aiming for top five, top six results and try to be as consistent as possible," said Chris Atkinson. "Rally Sweden is a specialist snow event and the driving style you need there is obviously totally different. Coming off tarmac we'll have to adapt quickly to the snow and get up to speed as quickly as possible. In Monte you had to be neat and smooth, but Sweden is probably one of the most aggressive rallies of the year."
