Information

Date and time SS Information
11. 02. 2017 10:22 CET 9 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I was too careful but it's a tricky stage - the average speed must be high. Many corners are flat but I was lifting. It's a new stage and I can afford to take it easy here.
11. 02. 2017 10:21 CET 9 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): A lot of time on the rev limiter but a bit too careful. I didn't have the attack mode.
11. 02. 2017 10:20 CET 9 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I didn't feel so confident...so only clean run.
11. 02. 2017 10:19 CET 9 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I'm not happy with that time but I drove at my rhythm ... what can I do? Maybe I just wasn't quick enough... you can lose a lot with just a few hesitations.
11. 02. 2017 10:18 CET 9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): No problems. You have to be completely committed in here, it's super fast! The stage is getting faster and faster with each car. We enjoy our road position better than yesterday.
11. 02. 2017 10:17 CET 9 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): The power steering failed right at the start. Impossible to drive.
11. 02. 2017 10:16 CET 9 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I didn't do it very well to be honest. I found it difficult to keep the speed in the corners. Very fast stage.
11. 02. 2017 10:15 CET 9 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): If you have the confidence I'm sure it's amazing but I backed off a little towards the end. I don't want to make any silly mistakes today.
11. 02. 2017 10:11 CET 9 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It is a hell... The grip seems quite good but there's loose snow on top and that make the grip unpredictable at high speed when you want to turn in.
11. 02. 2017 10:10 CET 9 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): My pace notes were not so good ... I was braking too much.
11. 02. 2017 10:09 CET 9 flash info (16 - Gorban Valeriy / Larens Sergei): Very fast stage, very slippery on the loose snow.
11. 02. 2017 10:06 CET 9 The tyre choice acording Michelin: All WRC (Michelins) have the same 'X Ice North 3' studded tyres. Ogier, Tanak, Breen, Meeke, Sordo, Neuville, Paddon and Østberg have one spare. Hänninen, Latvala and Lefebvre have two.
10. 02. 2017 18:00 CET 8 flash info (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): Some mistakes, two spins but we have shown some good speed today so I'm happy.
10. 02. 2017 17:58 CET 8 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): It's been okay, no mistakes. I'm just trying to enjoy my driving and stay fully concentrated - that's the best way.
10. 02. 2017 17:55 CET 8 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Hopefully that didn't cost us too much time. We need to keep concentrated tomorrow and try to improve.
10. 02. 2017 17:55 CET 8 (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): spins crossing the finish line
10. 02. 2017 17:48 CET 8 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): These last two stages have been difficult. The decision to take five tyres was ours and we had to take it easy because we don't have many studs. The improvements we have seen this afternoon give me confidence for tomorrow.
10. 02. 2017 17:46 CET 8 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It was horrible. My tyres are completely shot - zero grip. I was really, really slow in there. Driving without studs is not nice. Overall not a bad day but we lost a lot of time when we lost the studs.
10. 02. 2017 17:44 CET 8 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): This one was very tricky in the dark and because my door kept opening - which was quite disturbing. My tyres are still good but I took it steady until the end.
10. 02. 2017 17:40 CET 8 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): It's been a good day, and I'm very happy but on this stage I feel we have lost some power and I can hear some strange noises - so I'm happy to be here.
10. 02. 2017 17:38 CET 8 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): A tricky day. The puncture this morning wasn't great but my speed was good and we have some positives to take away.
10. 02. 2017 17:35 CET 8 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Not terrible, but not far away. It hasn't been our day today, but we will come back stronger tomorrow.
10. 02. 2017 17:33 CET 8 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): This stage was difficult with the lights and I don't have enough studs in the studs. It was really slippery and I took no risks.
10. 02. 2017 17:32 CET 8 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It was difficult to be first on the road, and I'm really pleased with what we've been able to do today. I was pushing really hard here to get the best start position on Saturday. We managed to get one place so it should be better tomorrow.
10. 02. 2017 17:30 CET 8 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Very slippery - no snow banks and an ice layer. I tried to be clean but the tyres were worn and I couldn't be neat and precise - I had to go sideways instead.
10. 02. 2017 17:28 CET 8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): The whole day has been difficult but this was really bad. With so much loose snow there was nothing I could do. I hope tomorrow will better.
10. 02. 2017 17:27 CET 8 retired (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): without a rear wing on his Fiesta Mads has called it a day before SS8
11. 02. 2017 14:47 CET 7 retired (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): retired after SS 7
11. 02. 2017 08:36 CET 7 retired (91 - Levin Andreas / Nilsson Björn): technical problem - engine after SS 7
10. 02. 2017 16:47 CET 7 flash info (45 - Greensmith Gus / Parry Craig): A lot of condensation inside the windscreen made it hard to see in a few places but so far this has been a good learning day.
10. 02. 2017 16:44 CET 7 flash info (40 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Very icy now. I missed one junction but otherwise a good feeling here - better than this morning.
10. 02. 2017 16:40 CET 7 flash info (36 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): We used our spare tyre earlier. Now my front tyres have almost no studs left.
10. 02. 2017 16:40 CET 7 (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): spun
10. 02. 2017 16:38 CET 7 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Absolutely no fun driving without the rear spoiler. It's been so hard to just stay on the road. I put my best tyres on the rear here to try and stabilise the car but it didn't work so well. That's good news that our spoiler was returned back to the team, there aren't too many spares around and I didn't want to do the rest of the rally without it.
10. 02. 2017 16:35 CET 7 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Everything is working really good, we are really enjoying the drive.
10. 02. 2017 16:34 CET 7 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): A good push in there.
10. 02. 2017 16:29 CET 7 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): This afternoon has definitely been better - credit to my engineer for the set-up changes that have helped me. I felt the studs going here though, and I only have one spare.
10. 02. 2017 16:27 CET 7 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I've picked up the rhythm again. I got a lot of movement from the studs at the midpoint and I had to back off after that. I thought my time was good but it looks like Thierry had a blinder.
10. 02. 2017 16:22 CET 7 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): A really good stage to be honest, but the grip was completely gone - it felt like I had no studs. Jari-Matti had the advantage earlier but I tried to benefit from the cleaner line this afternoon. The car is going well, better and better.
10. 02. 2017 16:22 CET 7 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): I thought I had the same amount of grip as the previous stage. I didn't.
10. 02. 2017 16:18 CET 7 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): So little grip. I don't know what's happened but its like the grip went off the edge of a cliff after the previous stage.
10. 02. 2017 16:18 CET 7 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): We patched it up as best we could but it's incredible the effect that the aero makes. I lost a four or five seconds with a small mistake but otherwise ok.
10. 02. 2017 16:16 CET 7 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Better than earlier but now the studs on the tyres start to be damaged. There's not a lot of grip - and a big difference between the amount at the front and the rear.
10. 02. 2017 16:11 CET 7 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Difficult with so much loose snow on the surface and maybe the tyres starting to wear too. Very slippery.
10. 02. 2017 16:11 CET 7 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Not a good stage for me. I tried too hard. The condition were difficult and the line was very narrow. I made mistakes and ran wide in places. I will lose a lot of time here.
10. 02. 2017 16:09 CET 7 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's been a very tough afternoon for us. Now there is just one more stage to go before hopefully we can benefit from better road conditions tomorrow.
10. 02. 2017 15:13 CET 6 flash info (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): Quite good but not perfect. Some loose snow outside the tracks but it feels good.
10. 02. 2017 15:13 CET 6 (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Ostberg's team has appealed to Rally Sweden fans to find and return the missing wing.
10. 02. 2017 15:12 CET 6 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): It's horrible without the rear wing. The car is designed to have it, and without it it's the worst handing car.
10. 02. 2017 15:10 CET 6 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): We need to keep going. It still feels like the beginning of the rally. Stage by stage.
10. 02. 2017 15:07 CET 6 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Good. I could drive a few seconds faster - or even more. Much better than the first pass.
10. 02. 2017 15:03 CET 6 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): A big improvement over the morning. The car is not driving me anymore, I'm driving it. I need to use the brakes less - more on the right pedal.
10. 02. 2017 14:59 CET 6 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It's snowing now, ok not heavily, but it's covering the ground and it's hard to see the lines. When its like this there is no advantage to running further down the order.
10. 02. 2017 14:56 CET 6 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Its good. I tried to drive so efficiently here to stay in the line. Push harder and you get out of the grip.
10. 02. 2017 14:56 CET 6 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): I make progress and I'm very happy. My first time here in a World Rally Car.
10. 02. 2017 14:56 CET 6 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Quite a lot of loose snow in here but not as extreme as the previous stage. Quite changeable grip.
10. 02. 2017 14:55 CET 6 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I had a spin and I went into a snow bank. I have completely, completely lost my confidence.
10. 02. 2017 14:55 CET 6 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): There is a lot of snow now and I can't get the feeling. There's grip in the lines, but nothing outside. I can't keep the car in the lines and that's affecting my confidence.
10. 02. 2017 14:51 CET 6 (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): was out of road
10. 02. 2017 14:46 CET 6 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I'm not fully happy. There is a lot of fresh snow on the top here, it's very slippery. Also I made a few mistakes - went wide in a few places.
10. 02. 2017 14:45 CET 6 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): You have ruts but its very difficult to keep the rear in them. You have to be very, very precise. I feel quite good with the car. I think the drivers behind will benefit from a wider line - we'll see.
10. 02. 2017 14:45 CET 6 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I cannot do anything. I'm trying but it's undriveable after the historic cars. Of course tomorrow I will have a better road position, but I need to keep myself in a good place tonight.
10. 02. 2017 15:20 CET 5 retired (42 - Lukyanuk Alexey / Arnautov Alexey): technical problem after SS 5
10. 02. 2017 14:18 CET 5 retired (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): technical problem - cooler after SS 5
10. 02. 2017 14:17 CET 5 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): There is damage to the cooling system so the water temperature is high. it's not possible to continue.
10. 02. 2017 14:17 CET 5 (44 - Arai Hiroki / MacNeall Glenn): puncture
10. 02. 2017 14:16 CET 5 (42 - Lukyanuk Alexey / Arnautov Alexey): technical problem, car is front wheel drive only
10. 02. 2017 14:13 CET 5 flash info (40 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I was stuck behind Brynildsen for 15km. He was driving very slowly. Why did he do that? I'm very angry.
10. 02. 2017 14:13 CET 5 flash info (36 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): We had a puncture. And then we caught Koltun. A big disappointment, but that's how it is sometimes.
10. 02. 2017 14:13 CET 5 flash info (38 - Kołtun Jarosław / Pleskot Ireneusz): My rally is completely ruined. Engine problem. We had to stop on stage.
10. 02. 2017 14:12 CET 5 flash info (39 - Bergkvist Emil / Sjöberg Joakim): I caught the car in front. Then I saw Brynildsen stopped too. I tried to do the best I could.
10. 02. 2017 14:12 CET 5 (36 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): puncture
10. 02. 2017 14:10 CET 5 flash info (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): I spun just a couple of hundred meters before the finish.
10. 02. 2017 14:08 CET 5 (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): spun
10. 02. 2017 14:07 CET 5 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Car is missing its rear spoiler. It came off when I was absolutely flat out in sixth gear.
10. 02. 2017 14:02 CET 5 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): A clean stage. I can confirm the lack of grip. You just need to keep the car in the lines.
10. 02. 2017 14:01 CET 5 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Difficult to drive on the limit - there's no grip outside the line.
10. 02. 2017 13:59 CET 5 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Better. We made a small change to the car which has given me a lot more confidence. There were a lot of small holes and ruts in the corners here - we hit one and I thought I had a puncture, but it's ok.
10. 02. 2017 13:55 CET 5 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I was off the road for 15 sec. I got stuck in a snow bank and was lucky to get out. I had a huge bump in the car, it was a big surprise, the car went light and and I went off at the next corner.
10. 02. 2017 13:53 CET 5 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): Just before the finish I started to slide, slide, slide and we hit a tree. The water temperature is high - I have to go.
10. 02. 2017 13:51 CET 5 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): was out of road
10. 02. 2017 13:49 CET 5 (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): was out of road
10. 02. 2017 13:47 CET 5 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The road is changing a bit. This morning the guys ahead had an advantage. Now maybe we do.
10. 02. 2017 13:45 CET 5 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): An improvement on the first pass. My pacenotes were better.
10. 02. 2017 13:43 CET 5 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Really tricky. Off the line there's absolutely no grip. I'm trying to drive as cleanly as possible.
10. 02. 2017 13:41 CET 5 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): About 200 metres before the finish I lost the front and went into a bank - I had to reverse. Extremely tricky.
10. 02. 2017 13:39 CET 5 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): More difficult to drive than earlier. Ok, there's grip in the lines but off them it's extremely slippery. I saw some gravel in there so I tried to look after my tyres.
10. 02. 2017 13:37 CET 5 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The car is fine now. Not much grip at the rear, but the stage was ok.
10. 02. 2017 13:35 CET 5 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Very tricky in the lines, the snow since the earlier pass has made it very slippery.
10. 02. 2017 13:34 CET 5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Lines of historic cars are so different It's almost undriveable. It's a big fight to keep the car in the lines.
10. 02. 2017 14:15 CET 4 retired (35 - Grøndal Anders / Eilertsen Roger): technical problem after SS 4
10. 02. 2017 14:15 CET 4 retired (33 - Loubet Pierre-Louis / Landais Vincent): technical problem - engine after SS 4
10. 02. 2017 11:35 CET 4 retired (86 - Alsdal Fredrik / Bood Ida): accident in SS 4
10. 02. 2017 11:35 CET 4 retired (85 - Blomberg Robert / Andersson Lars): retired in SS 4
10. 02. 2017 11:31 CET 4 flash info (45 - Greensmith Gus / Parry Craig): Not the best. A bit of hesitation near then end. It's not really very good. The pace notes were good at the start but not near the end - too slow for Sweden.
10. 02. 2017 11:17 CET 4 flash info (40 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Nice, but difficult this morning. I don't have a good feeling and I don't trust my notes 100 %.
10. 02. 2017 11:13 CET 4 flash info (38 - Kołtun Jarosław / Pleskot Ireneusz): So far a terrible rally for me. I'm not sure it's going to get better.
10. 02. 2017 11:13 CET 4 flash info (36 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): More understeer here, but it's a good fight with Suninen.
10. 02. 2017 11:10 CET 4 flash info (35 - Grøndal Anders / Eilertsen Roger): I can't get it to work property – I’m a bit disappointed. Not sure it’s me or the car. I think I have an idea about what needs changing but those parts are sealed.
10. 02. 2017 11:08 CET 4 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): A fantastic stage. I really enjoyed it. We start to get into the snow driving now. We can improve.
10. 02. 2017 11:08 CET 4 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): A quite ok loop but I made some small driving mistakes and I need to improve them before the next loop.
10. 02. 2017 11:04 CET 4 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): I'm struggling to find the grip, especially under braking. The ice is gone, but I'm not yet on the gravel. It's not possible to do times like Jari-Matti's from this far down in the start order.
10. 02. 2017 11:03 CET 4 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Everything feels abnormal at the moment - the driving is not coming naturally.
10. 02. 2017 10:57 CET 4 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It's ok, but Jari's done a flier. I'm just driving at my own rhythm.
10. 02. 2017 10:53 CET 4 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): Nothing special. Struggling a little in the slow corners. Maybe I will change the car a little in service, I have some ideas.
10. 02. 2017 10:52 CET 4 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): A lot of deep cuts in here. I hit something very hard on the front right and afterwards I took it easy. Ok, I lost a bit of time, but the conditions are getting worse I think.
10. 02. 2017 10:50 CET 4 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): Ok, but I think I can use the snow banks more to my benefit.
10. 02. 2017 10:48 CET 4 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I got dragged into a snow bank and there must have been a rock in there. We managed to get out but it was pretty evident that something was wrong.
10. 02. 2017 10:48 CET 4 (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): puncture
10. 02. 2017 10:46 CET 4 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I hit a stone and broke the front-right damper.
10. 02. 2017 10:43 CET 4 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was a distraction and I missed a hairpin and lost a lot of time. After that I couldn't get back in the rhythm.
10. 02. 2017 10:41 CET 4 (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): going slowly
10. 02. 2017 10:40 CET 4 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Gearbox issues...
10. 02. 2017 10:40 CET 4 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): A very nice stage, perfect, a nice feeling. I couldn't get such a feeling here last year because we had a broken driveshaft. The car feels good now - we have stiffened the front suspension.
10. 02. 2017 10:37 CET 4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Very difficult, Especially this one, which was maybe the worst of the loop. In the narrow sections there is no grip. That's just how it is. I'm happy with my driving though.
10. 02. 2017 10:09 CET 3 flash info (84 - Tempestini Simone / Bernacchini Giovanni): We had a puncture in the first stage and in here - in the fast sections - I felt the right rear wheel isn't straight. We will make it to service ok.
10. 02. 2017 10:05 CET 3 flash info (45 - Greensmith Gus / Parry Craig): A really bad one for me. The notes were way too slow and I couldn't commit to them. I think we've got them all for next time.
10. 02. 2017 09:59 CET 3 flash info (42 - Lukyanuk Alexey / Arnautov Alexey): This one is different, the feeling is not as good as before, I'm just learning and gaining experience.
10. 02. 2017 09:58 CET 3 flash info (40 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Difficult, huh? We had a faulty note - it's not easy to go flat out. I haven't driven on snow for a year.
10. 02. 2017 09:56 CET 3 flash info (39 - Bergkvist Emil / Sjöberg Joakim): We made some setup changes between the stages, it feels better now.
10. 02. 2017 09:54 CET 3 flash info (36 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): Difficult one - massive understeer towards the end. My mistake - pushing too much I think. It's difficult to read the grip. Remember I'm not a full time driver like Pontus or Teemu - I'm a road worker.
10. 02. 2017 09:53 CET 3 flash info (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): A little too careful in here - my family owns the forest near the start so it feels special to be here.
10. 02. 2017 09:51 CET 3 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): This stage feels better but I still need to work a bit on the driving.
10. 02. 2017 09:43 CET 3 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): I tried to push but there were some difficult lines in there. I tried my best, the speed is incredible. We need to push a little harder.
10. 02. 2017 09:43 CET 3 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Really trying to feel my way into this. I know I'm not driving very well at the moment. No point in pushing. I just have to let it come naturally.
10. 02. 2017 09:39 CET 3 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): On the limiter a few times in here. I tried to make use of the road camber and keep it neat - perhaps I could could go faster.
10. 02. 2017 09:39 CET 3 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): The car is working really well. A really nice stage.
10. 02. 2017 09:38 CET 3 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The feeling at the rear is a bit better but my pace notes were a bit too fast in places here - I lost confidence and slowed a little near the end. Compared to the old cars these are so are much faster.
10. 02. 2017 09:33 CET 3 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): Very fast - we were on the rev limiter.
10. 02. 2017 09:29 CET 3 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The grip is generally okay, but this stage is tricky, all new, high speed and your notes need to be 100 per cent.
10. 02. 2017 09:29 CET 3 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Absolutely incredible. Ok, I struggled at the start, when I wasn't committed enough, but I'm learning with every kilometre - the smile is getting bigger and bigger.
10. 02. 2017 09:25 CET 3 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): A really nice stage but very, very fast. Hard to keep the speed all the time - hard to find a rhythm.
10. 02. 2017 09:24 CET 3 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Very slippery near the start, then I got stuck between two gears. I don't know what was happening, it was distracting.
10. 02. 2017 09:24 CET 3 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Very fast sections in there - 200 kph for some time. Good conditions though, a proper winter rally stage.
10. 02. 2017 09:20 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): The first part of the stage was clean but the last part was loose and slippery. I think it's going to be difficult for us today.

10. 02. 2017 09:09 CET 2 retired (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): technical problem in SS 2
10. 02. 2017 08:58 CET 2 flash info (82 - Jirvelius Mattias / Appelskog Henrik): We spun in the last corner. I must go and check the car.
10. 02. 2017 08:55 CET 2 flash info (44 - Arai Hiroki / MacNeall Glenn): We hit a sharp stone on the inside of a corner. I thought it was just a slow puncture but it was worse. We just took it easy after that.
10. 02. 2017 08:55 CET 2 (44 - Arai Hiroki / MacNeall Glenn): puncture
10. 02. 2017 08:54 CET 2 flash info (43 - Katsuta Takamoto / Salminen Marko): I was a bit careful in every corner but a nice stage. I'm looking forward to the next one.
10. 02. 2017 08:54 CET 2 flash info (33 - Loubet Pierre-Louis / Landais Vincent): Lukyanuk stopped one corner before the finish. His car is about 20cm off the road.
10. 02. 2017 08:52 CET 2 flash info (38 - Kołtun Jarosław / Pleskot Ireneusz): We broke a wheel and got a puncture. We stopped to change it.
10. 02. 2017 08:52 CET 2 (38 - Kołtun Jarosław / Pleskot Ireneusz): puncture
10. 02. 2017 08:52 CET 2 (42 - Lukyanuk Alexey / Arnautov Alexey): was out of road
10. 02. 2017 08:50 CET 2 flash info (40 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I stalled the engine under braking and it took like to restart. Also Henning Solberg was on the road. Not easy.
10. 02. 2017 08:47 CET 2 flash info (39 - Bergkvist Emil / Sjöberg Joakim): Quite ok, actually. Some understeer in there. We hit a huge stone and were lucky not to puncture.
10. 02. 2017 08:45 CET 2 flash info (36 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): So perfect, the conditions are great. Lots of Norwegian flags. I'm so happy to be doing this.
10. 02. 2017 08:44 CET 2 flash info (35 - Grøndal Anders / Eilertsen Roger): Conditions were changing a lot: sometimes grip, sometimes none. The car feels good.
10. 02. 2017 08:43 CET 2 flash info (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): Quite surprising because I did some mistakes. A good start through.
10. 02. 2017 08:42 CET 2 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): In the first part I was quite careful, I need more experience in this car on these roads.
10. 02. 2017 08:41 CET 2 (17 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): stopped in stage
10. 02. 2017 08:34 CET 2 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Tricky. Lines going everywhere and a lot of snow on the road.
10. 02. 2017 08:33 CET 2 (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): stopped on stage
10. 02. 2017 08:31 CET 2 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I was surprised by how slippery it was out there. There are two ice lines to follow, and it's very slippery if you get off them.
10. 02. 2017 08:30 CET 2 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Quite good, but slippery off the line. I didn't want to do do anything stupid on the first stage. Bedding myself in. It felt good.
10. 02. 2017 08:29 CET 2 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): Really nice, I thought it would be more bumpy. My car was good over the bumps.
10. 02. 2017 08:27 CET 2 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was ok but the car is jumping around a bit I'm not too happy with the suspension at the rear. I tried to be smooth but I could be better.
10. 02. 2017 08:24 CET 2 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): It was ok for us. I don't take risks in the first one I want to get experience and a good feeling first of all.
10. 02. 2017 08:19 CET 2 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): An eye-opener. The car is absolutely awesome.
10. 02. 2017 08:17 CET 2 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was ok. Difficult to see the road in places.
10. 02. 2017 08:16 CET 2 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Bloody slippery. And it's difficult to see in this level of daylight.
10. 02. 2017 08:14 CET 2 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The car is very good to drive, the balance is good, but on the long long straight over the jumps I lost confidence, like I did at shakedown. I need to sort it out.
10. 02. 2017 08:12 CET 2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was difficult, especially in the narrow section where it was very slippery. Not a bad stage for us.
12. 02. 2017 13:56 CET 18 retired (82 - Jirvelius Mattias / Appelskog Henrik): retired in SS 18
12. 02. 2017 13:55 CET 18 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's amazing. A new team, a new car, our second rally and we've won. I have no words to describe it - I'm so emotional. I drove my best Power Stage ever with the Toyota Yaris. We are at a good level - now we go forward and it gets more difficult. The championship is interesting. Mexico is next and we have to work hard but I'm very motivated to keep the fight on
12. 02. 2017 13:54 CET 18 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I stalled the engine in a junction and stopped for some time. Generally a good weekend. It was a new experience opening the road on Friday and yesterday we were quicker which is good for the confidence. We know where we have to improve. I've got a good feeling from Sweden and and will have another good push in Mexico. It's been a good start to the season.
12. 02. 2017 13:53 CET 18 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think I'm happy. It's been a tough weekend so to finish on the podium is great. Some good points for the championship and that's what matters the most.
12. 02. 2017 13:53 CET 18 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We couldn't match the pace of Thierry here and we didn't want to risk the manufacturers points.
12. 02. 2017 13:52 CET 18 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Difficult. Okay, fifth place here is perhaps less spectacular than what we did in Monte. We have a bit of work to do but I have absolute faith in the guys back at the factory. This car has so much potential. I really think we can make something special.
12. 02. 2017 13:52 CET 18 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): It was important to get some miles on the car. There's more to come, we know where we can improve.
12. 02. 2017 13:52 CET 18 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): It was a very good weekend for us - which was all about gaining experience. We improved step-by-step and weren't that far off the pace of the 2017 cars.
12. 02. 2017 13:51 CET 18 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Fantastic, thanks to the team and everyone around me - this is absolutely one of the highlights of my career.
12. 02. 2017 13:51 CET 18 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Hopefully that's enough.
12. 02. 2017 13:51 CET 18 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I had to wait and see if I had grip and I could go. I felt some so I decided to go. Another difficult weekend we have a lot of work to do.
12. 02. 2017 13:50 CET 18 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I tried. Again, it's a shame and I'm really disappointed for the team. I was leading again, with a huge advantage then a small mistake cost us the win again.
12. 02. 2017 13:50 CET 18 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): We hit something on the fast section. I thought we had a puncture but it seems it was more serious. We slowed down - it's sums up our weekend! We felt the lack of preparation here.
12. 02. 2017 13:47 CET 18 flash info Starting times to Power Stage: 12:18 Ostberg, 12:21 Neuville, 12:24 Meeke, 12:28 Suninen, 12:32 Tidemand, 12:36 Lefebvre, 12:40 Paddon, 12:44 Evans, 12:48 Breen, 12:52 Sordo, 12:56 Ogier, 13:00 Tanak, 13:05 Latvala.
12. 02. 2017 13:46 CET 17 flash info (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): I was at my maximum here, Suninen did a fantastic job and we pushed him hard all rally. A podium result would still make me very very happy.
12. 02. 2017 13:46 CET 17 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It would be good to get second place but it won't be easy - Veiby is close behind and it's easy to lose time in the ruts here.
12. 02. 2017 13:46 CET 17 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Everything is under control. An incredible stage, I would have liked to have driven flat out.
12. 02. 2017 13:45 CET 17 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): I hit a bridge a little bit on the right side. No big damage.
12. 02. 2017 13:45 CET 17 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): The setup changes we made overnight haven't worked so well.
12. 02. 2017 13:45 CET 17 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We have only one goal today: five points on the Power Stage. I think our tyres should be good enough to go for a big push. I hope to get a minimum of two points.
12. 02. 2017 13:44 CET 17 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was a good stage again. I really enjoyed it. The best stage on the rally. A really nice ice layer with nice grip. Now we just need to go and stay cool on the last stage and try and enjoy it.
12. 02. 2017 13:43 CET 17 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I have no choice but to settle for second. I'm trying my best but we're just not competitive enough today.
12. 02. 2017 13:43 CET 17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): For sure there is nothing to catch in the overall standings so we took it easy here. We will try on the Power Stage. If we can get two points it would be good for us.
12. 02. 2017 13:43 CET 17 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The rear was moving a lot. Really difficult to drive. We have two new tyres for the Power Stage, we'll see how we go there but I don't want to risk my fourth place.
12. 02. 2017 13:43 CET 17 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): We seem to struggle with the car in the second pass. I'm a little bit lost, that's how it is.
12. 02. 2017 13:42 CET 17 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We had some parts in the car and we were able to change them before the stage. It's all sorted.
12. 02. 2017 13:42 CET 17 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): We're trying some new things with the car now, playing with settings to try and learn more about it.
12. 02. 2017 13:42 CET 17 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): Another clean one. More slippery than the first pass. No mistakes here. Not bad.
12. 02. 2017 13:42 CET 17 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): spun
12. 02. 2017 13:38 CET 17 flash info (16 - Gorban Valeriy / Larens Sergei): Very interesting road.
12. 02. 2017 13:36 CET 16 flash info (33 - Loubet Pierre-Louis / Landais Vincent): I tried, but I'm not sure what to say. In the fast sections I was not so fast, but it felt good in the slower sections. There are still two stages to go, he can make a mistake, we will try to catch him.
12. 02. 2017 13:36 CET 16 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Pretty good for me. A few soft brakings before junctions but otherwise ok.
12. 02. 2017 13:36 CET 16 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Very, very safe. A fantastic stage.
12. 02. 2017 13:35 CET 16 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): My pace notes were really bad in here - sometimes too fast and sometimes too slow. I had no confidence in them.
12. 02. 2017 13:35 CET 16 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): There is only one objective for us today which is to get points on the Power Stage. I'm driving to save my tyres.
12. 02. 2017 13:35 CET 16 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I am amazed. I have a very good feeling, the car felt amazing, me and Miikka are relaxed - it all came together. Last night I had a good chat with Tommi Makinen, he told me to go out there and focus on the driving, to forget about the set up, just go and drive.
12. 02. 2017 13:34 CET 16 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It's a big fight but I'm not happy in the slow sections, the car wants to spin all the time. We need to speak to the engineers.
12. 02. 2017 13:34 CET 16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): A stupid mistake on the first corner; I cut it, caught some fresh snow and spun. I struggled a bit to restart. Afterwards I took it easy because I knew it was over. It's a shame. I wanted to push this morning. It would have been difficult but that's life.
12. 02. 2017 13:34 CET 16 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was good, I didn't tale a lot of risks. I tried to drive well - perhaps I was too careful in places.
12. 02. 2017 13:32 CET 16 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Quite a good start. We made some changes to the set-up in service and they have made a good difference. I'm happy with that.
12. 02. 2017 13:32 CET 16 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Some problems with engine. I don't know, it happened close to the start.
12. 02. 2017 13:32 CET 16 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Visibility in the the early morning light isn't great but it's a pleasure to drive in these conditions.
12. 02. 2017 13:32 CET 16 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): Not such a good one.
12. 02. 2017 13:31 CET 16 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): spun
12. 02. 2017 13:31 CET 16 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Not so bad, quite a good pace but there's a little loose snow on top. We're still learning - still trying to improve.

11. 02. 2017 16:36 CET 14 flash info (45 - Greensmith Gus / Parry Craig): Happy to be back in 5th, everything feels like it did yesterday, only Karlstad super special to go.
11. 02. 2017 16:26 CET 14 retired (42 - Lukyanuk Alexey / Arnautov Alexey): suspension damage in SS 14
11. 02. 2017 16:22 CET 14 (84 - Tempestini Simone / Bernacchini Giovanni): roll in stage
11. 02. 2017 16:15 CET 14 flash info (17 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): Thanks to him [Alexey Lukyanuk} - we took this one [windscreen} from his recce car. It was a hire car, the screen still has the Europecar sticker on!
11. 02. 2017 16:15 CET 14 flash info (36 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): I tried to break it again - I was absolutely flat but I couldn't build up enough speed.
11. 02. 2017 16:14 CET 14 (42 - Lukyanuk Alexey / Arnautov Alexey): stopped in stage
11. 02. 2017 16:03 CET 14 flash info (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): My driving changes are working well since service. There are still some seconds to go to catch Suninen but we will keep going.
11. 02. 2017 16:01 CET 14 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It was okay, one small mistake but an okay time. The jump was fine - we have these everywhere in Finland.
11. 02. 2017 16:01 CET 14 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Very happy. An amazing stage, a lot of spectators - the coolest stage so far. Looking forward now to getting to the end of the day.
11. 02. 2017 15:58 CET 14 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): I missed the corner before and lost some speed! Of course I wanted it [the record] - I was thinking about the jump all the way through. This is the most important thing in the world now. I couldn't stand up to the pressure, apparently!
11. 02. 2017 15:53 CET 14 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): That's a surprise to be honest. I didn't push. I drove well but I was disturbed by a strange smell in the car - the screen heater I think.
11. 02. 2017 15:50 CET 14 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): The rear snapped away from me coming into a left-hander and I couldn't turn in. Thanks to the spectators for helping us.
11. 02. 2017 15:48 CET 14 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It seems we lost time here. The tyres were maybe too worn I couldn't get the feeling. Also Kris Meeke was off the road and I had to slow down.
11. 02. 2017 15:45 CET 14 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Wide on one corner near the end but a good clean run. I saw Paul in the stage waving at us to slow down.
11. 02. 2017 15:44 CET 14 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): back onto the road.
11. 02. 2017 15:41 CET 14 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): The engine is running and spectators are trying to push the car approx 20 metres back onto the road.
11. 02. 2017 15:37 CET 14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Really slippery for sure. I struggled to go any faster. I hoped to have more speed today.
11. 02. 2017 15:37 CET 14 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): off the road. Stuck over a big stone
11. 02. 2017 15:32 CET 14 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): No grip but I had to keep the speed up because Breen is getting close.
11. 02. 2017 15:30 CET 14 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I'm really struggling with the rear of the car. Trying to carry some good speed in places but the rear is trying to get past me in others.
11. 02. 2017 15:26 CET 14 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I didn't have any grip at all. A very difficult stage.
11. 02. 2017 15:23 CET 14 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): A bit better but the snow felt strange compared to the first pass. The first time for me in these conditions.
11. 02. 2017 15:22 CET 14 flash info (16 - Gorban Valeriy / Larens Sergei): A little bit faster and a higher jump.
11. 02. 2017 15:02 CET 13 flash info (40 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Good feeling, but I don't know why I lost some time in the last part of the stage, anyway we push!
11. 02. 2017 15:01 CET 13 flash info (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): I changed my driving style a bit here and it seems to work.
11. 02. 2017 14:59 CET 13 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): Same problem with the engine that we had before service - no power.
11. 02. 2017 14:59 CET 13 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): It was a nice stage. Good grip and fantastic stage - a lot of people.
11. 02. 2017 14:56 CET 13 (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): Stopped on stage. Going again. Splits show he has dropped almost two minutes.
11. 02. 2017 14:56 CET 13 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Not the worst activity for a Saturday is it?
11. 02. 2017 14:50 CET 13 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The stage went well. The car was moving a bit at the rear with the extra weight of the second tyre but the grip is huge. I will be fine.
11. 02. 2017 14:48 CET 13 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I'm happy about that. A good stage, but the downhill section was very difficult on the loose now - I thought I had a puncture.
11. 02. 2017 14:45 CET 13 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Really good grip and I'm trying my best. It's difficult because everybody is trying. Can I catch Jari-Matti? I'll keep pushing and see what happens.
11. 02. 2017 14:45 CET 13 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Like before we struggled on the downhill section to the finish. I tried to improve my speed there but not enough.
11. 02. 2017 14:40 CET 13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): The grip is getting better and better. There's more gravel too, but not enough to badly affect the tyres.
11. 02. 2017 14:39 CET 13 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): It's much easier with some power steering - it feels like I have a feather at my finger tips. Trying now to get a good rhythm and have some fun.
11. 02. 2017 14:35 CET 13 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): A nice stage. Very fast. I like it.
11. 02. 2017 14:33 CET 13 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It was a bit better than this morning. Another stage without any mistakes so we can be happy with that.
11. 02. 2017 14:32 CET 13 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was okay, but there's pretty much a defined line now - and if you drive off it it's very slippery.
11. 02. 2017 14:32 CET 13 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): I hit a snow bank in the last corner and lost 20 or 30 seconds.
11. 02. 2017 10:39 CET 12 Stage is cancelled due to safety reasons after analysing the average speeds on special stage 9 and on recommendations from the FIA.
11. 02. 2017 11:04 CET 11 flash info (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): Quite difficult this one. Very special and tricky. I did my best, these other guys were quite fast.
11. 02. 2017 11:03 CET 11 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): No big mistakes. We try to improve. Nice to have a tight fight...you need to be on your limits.
11. 02. 2017 10:59 CET 11 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Nice and steady. A bit wide in some corners but a nice stage, I enjoyed it.
11. 02. 2017 10:58 CET 11 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): We were down on power for the first six or seven kilometres, the engine lost a cylinder. We were going to stop but it cleared and we carried on.
11. 02. 2017 10:56 CET 11 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): The car is good. Maybe I will change the set-up in service to get more confidence in the slow places.
11. 02. 2017 10:50 CET 11 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): I enjoyed it. Quite difficult to handle this big wide car on the narrow section at the beginning but on the wider road it's fantastic.
11. 02. 2017 10:49 CET 11 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): With our lead we took it a bit more steady. This is the first time I didnlt really jump over Colin's Crest, but we didn't want to take any risks. I'm controlling.
11. 02. 2017 10:48 CET 11 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): A really nice run, I couldn't do better but I made a mistake taking two spares this morning. I'm carrying too much weight at the back and that slows me in the long corners.
11. 02. 2017 10:48 CET 11 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Big battle. It needs to be perfect and so far we have done a really clean job.
11. 02. 2017 10:44 CET 11 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): A bit better here than the previous stage but I'm disappointed with my morning. I chose my rhythm but it wasn't quick enough.
11. 02. 2017 10:43 CET 11 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Much better than yesterday. We try as hard as we can. I think quite a good loop. We keep pushing.
11. 02. 2017 10:42 CET 11 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): With these wider cars it's like wrestling a 400lb lion...and I'm coming off second best.
11. 02. 2017 10:42 CET 11 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I could do a bit better in here I think but I enjoyed it a lot.
11. 02. 2017 10:41 CET 11 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): No mistakes all morning and that's a big improvement over yesterday. Now it's clean, let's try and progress from here.
11. 02. 2017 10:39 CET 11 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Really, really difficult. I struggled for grip again.
11. 02. 2017 10:37 CET 10 flash info (45 - Greensmith Gus / Parry Craig): Just taking it easy. I'm here to learn.
11. 02. 2017 10:36 CET 10 flash info (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): I tried to push here, it's a stage I know well. Suninen is pushing too. It's a good fight.
11. 02. 2017 10:35 CET 10 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): In some nice, wide sections we push a bit but when it's narrower like this we take care...just controlling.
11. 02. 2017 10:35 CET 10 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): The first proper stage for us. On the first one we had a problem with the anti-lag system.
11. 02. 2017 10:34 CET 10 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): Just trying to get the good feeling and enjoy these really, really nice stages.
11. 02. 2017 10:33 CET 10 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): I can´t find the same rhythm as yesterday. I'm struggling to adjust to driving with a rear wing again.
11. 02. 2017 10:33 CET 10 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): A good stage but I keep it on a clean line all the time. I tried to be very efficient.
11. 02. 2017 10:31 CET 10 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Nice, consistent grip today, much better than yesterday.
11. 02. 2017 10:31 CET 10 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It doesn't look good for me this morning, we don't have the pace to fight for the podium.
11. 02. 2017 10:30 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): A bit of fresh snow means that grip is not optimum here but we try our best.
11. 02. 2017 10:30 CET 10 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Just trying my best to get through but boy is it hard work. Trying to make sure my arms don't fall off.
11. 02. 2017 10:29 CET 10 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): A small mistake near the beginning, but after that I had good confidence so I pushed.
11. 02. 2017 10:27 CET 10 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I'm just trying to keep it clean, no little mistakes like yesterday.
11. 02. 2017 10:25 CET 10 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Really slippery...
11. 02. 2017 10:25 CET 10 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): Not easy. Some places very slippery. Five or six centimeters of fresh snow I think but more grip than I expected.
11. 02. 2017 10:24 CET 10 flash info (16 - Gorban Valeriy / Larens Sergei): Everything is ok, the car is ok.
09. 02. 2017 20:59 CET 1 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Not so bad. Ok, not the fastest but tomorrow the real thing starts. We need to be awake straight away. I hope not too much fresh snow falls overnight.
09. 02. 2017 20:59 CET 1 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Everything is more than great - now I just need to hold the horses. I just try to get a good rhythm tomorrow. That's the most important thing.
09. 02. 2017 20:55 CET 1 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Not so bad, but we lost a little time off the start line - got a bit bogged - Mads got ahead and made it stick.
09. 02. 2017 20:55 CET 1 flash info (14 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Quite tricky. It's my first time in one of these cars on a stage like this. The car is fantastic but quite difficult in a stage like this. I cannot wait to get out onto the stages tomorrow.
09. 02. 2017 20:50 CET 1 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It's getting loose in some places, really tricky and difficult to manage. I'm happy to start the rally like this.
09. 02. 2017 20:50 CET 1 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I used my shakedown tyres here, which are not so good anymore, but they were okay for this stage. But I was not so happy with the car's balance. I planned to do better than this.
09. 02. 2017 20:48 CET 1 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Messy. I got caught out a couple of times. Tomorrow is when it starts.
09. 02. 2017 20:48 CET 1 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): A bit inconsistent, but generally ok.
09. 02. 2017 20:44 CET 1 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): We played around with the car here and it definitely didn't work. Looking forward to tomorrow - bring it on.
09. 02. 2017 20:44 CET 1 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Ok, it's not a 'real' stage - it's completely ice - but the car is working really well. A lot of fun.
09. 02. 2017 20:42 CET 1 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): The Yaris went well - better than the driver! A bit slippery but a nice stage for the spectators.
09. 02. 2017 20:39 CET 1 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): It was a good stage, quite smooth - my first stage of the season.
09. 02. 2017 20:36 CET 1 flash info (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I made a mistake after the jump. I need to concentrate tomorrow.
09. 02. 2017 20:36 CET 1 flash info (17 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): I'm quite happy - shakedown was my first time in this car and I was fastest there.
09. 02. 2017 20:32 CET 1 flash info (40 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): On the start there was a mistake - we thought we had two more minutes to go, but we only had one.
09. 02. 2017 20:31 CET 1 (31 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): was out of road
09. 02. 2017 20:28 CET 1 flash info (45 - Greensmith Gus / Parry Craig): It's my first time on snow, so this is a learning rally for me. This one if all about the mileage. It was good fun though.
09. 02. 2017 20:25 CET 1 flash info (82 - Jirvelius Mattias / Appelskog Henrik): A lot more slippery than I thought.
09. 02. 2017 20:25 CET 1 flash info (34 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): It was a neat and clean stage for me - I'm happy with that. Very comfortable for now.
09. 02. 2017 20:23 CET 1 flash info (81 - Ketomäki Jukka / Alanen Jarkko): Quite slippery - not good for me.
09. 02. 2017 20:23 CET 1 flash info (42 - Lukyanuk Alexey / Arnautov Alexey): Exciting, a nice stage, a good surface. We must stay calm and see how things work out.
09. 02. 2017 20:22 CET 1 flash info (43 - Katsuta Takamoto / Salminen Marko): A good stage, tomorrow is the most important - that's the proper rally.
09. 02. 2017 20:22 CET 1 flash info (44 - Arai Hiroki / MacNeall Glenn): I missed a shift at some point and went a little bit sideways - but we made it - its ok.
09. 02. 2017 20:19 CET 1 flash info (36 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): It's looking really good. We had a good speed in Norway earlier in the season - we want to bring some of that speed here.
09. 02. 2017 20:19 CET 1 flash info (39 - Bergkvist Emil / Sjöberg Joakim): So nice to drive here in front of so many spectators - I'm really looking forward to the weekend.
09. 02. 2017 20:16 CET 1 flash info (35 - Grøndal Anders / Eilertsen Roger): I was bit slow on the throttle, I have to do a better job.
09. 02. 2017 20:15 CET 1 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): I enjoyed it. A great atmosphere, lots of slides.
09. 02. 2017 20:01 CET 1 Weather in Karlstad is cloudy, temperature around -4˚C.
