You have won 41 rallies now and you're only 34 years old. Will there come a point where you say, Okay, that's enough rallying, now I'll try something else?
Not at the moment, but in the future I don't know. I have a contract until the end of 2009 and after then I don't know if I'll want to continue or do something else. It will also depend on what else I can do. I think it will be interesting one day to do a bit of track racing but in which car, and in what category I don't know. If I find something that's a big challenge and is interesting for me maybe I'll try it.
People talk of you being the greatest rally driver ever. How does that make you feel?
It makes me feel happy for sure. It's a nice compliment to have people saying that. But I don't know if I am the best rally driver or not. Yes I have a lot of victories but maybe I was also lucky to start in a very good car. In 2003 I had a car which was able to win nearly everywhere and that's not the case with all the drivers. Maybe if I'd done three years with a bad car it wouldn't have turned out this way. It's difficult to compare different rally drivers because you are not comparing one against the other at the same time.
Will you have any time to relax between now and Turkey?
Now I'm going home and I don't leave for Turkey until Monday so I have a full weekend at home.
