Kenneth Hansen (Team Principal)
We were very competitive in Canada last year. Davy Jeanney won the final and Timmy was outstanding in the heats, so we’re feeling quite confident this time round. We know the other teams have upped their game this season, so we will need to stay focused and make maximum use of the data we collected at the last round in Sweden. We had a test recently and we are convinced we will be up there in the fight for victory.

Sébastien Loeb (#9 PEUGEOT 208 WRX, Team Peugeot Hansen)
I don’t know Canada very well. I think I’ve only been there once before, for a film, so it’s nice to have the time to discover it a bit more. The track is obviously completely new to me. In fact, they have all been so far. I know it’s got the longest straight of the championship, with low walls very close to the ideal line. I will do my best to steer clear of them!

Timmy Hansen (#21 PEUGEOT 208 WRX, Team Peugeot Hansen)
I always enjoy Trois Rivières. It’s a great event and the track is based on a street circuit. The organisers work hard and they have produced a track that really fits the spirit of the world championship. I can’t wait to get started, especially as the PEUGEOT 208 WRX is very fast now and our team is extremely responsive.
