An agreement has been reached between the WRC teams and manufacturers to allow the drivers to talk about Rally of Portugal, AUTOSPORT has learned.
On the instruction of the teams, the drivers refused to talk to WRC television crews this morning but, following a meeting in the afternoon, interviews were completed on the second loop of stages.
The teams were forced to take action after they said they were denied access to footage from Friday's stages.
Today's discussions ensured the teams have footage tonight and the WRC Promoter has interviews with the drivers.
Volkswagen's Jost Capito said: "We had a very constructive meeting today which solved the issues here in Portugal. This was a good cooperation."
On reaching the end of the stages, the drivers had kept their doors shut when requested an interview for television.
