21. 01. 2017 09:28 CET 9 flash info (35 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): We pushed in this one. It’s not easy again. Difficult conditions but I’m confident.

21. 01. 2017 09:23 CET 9 flash info (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Picked up a puncture 10km before the finish. Decided not to stop.
21. 01. 2017 09:22 CET 9 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Nothing special. We were cautious. The car was a little bit too stiff.
21. 01. 2017 09:21 CET 9 (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Front-right puncture 10km before the finish.
21. 01. 2017 09:16 CET 9 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Really cautious in there. The last 15 - 20 km it was proper Sunday speed. Really careful.
21. 01. 2017 09:15 CET 9 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Good to be back but I was hesitating in here. When that happens it's easy to lose a lot of time.
21. 01. 2017 09:14 CET 9 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): I went a little wide and hit a barrier. It's okay, in these icy conditions the aero isn't so important.
21. 01. 2017 09:13 CET 9 (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): Damage to the right-rear wheel arch
21. 01. 2017 09:12 CET 9 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): Quite okay at the start but on the snow part I had a front-right puncture.
21. 01. 2017 09:10 CET 9 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Okay, not a massive difference but I had a clean run. No surprises for us, good information from our ice crew. l am committed and confident. The car is working really well. I've never had a car like this for the first rally in a season. It's enjoyable.
21. 01. 2017 09:08 CET 9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I tried to save the tyres at the beginning. Its tricky on the ice. I'm happy to be here again. No easier than yesterday.
21. 01. 2017 09:04 CET 9 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I tried to be nice but in the ice it's very slippery. Very hard conditions.
21. 01. 2017 09:04 CET 9 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I think I made a mistake here. I pushed too hard in the beginning on the dry Tarmac and I killed the studs before the ice.
21. 01. 2017 09:02 CET 9 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Like yesterday really bad conditions. The first section, on just Tarmac, was okay. After, on the ice, it was difficult to drive. On this surface it is impossible for me to get confidence.
21. 01. 2017 09:01 CET 9 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Far more difficult than yesterday. So tricky and narrow, no room for error. I struggled a little, I was not committed enough to my ice notes.
21. 01. 2017 09:00 CET 9 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): That's a surprise, but okay, I'll take it. The ice felt really slow again but there was more fluffy snow - less hard packed - and that suits us better. The first split felt really good.
21. 01. 2017 08:43 CET 9 Meeke/Lefebvre/Neuville/Tanak/Ogier: 4 winter stud + 2 super soft. Sordo: 4 winter stud + 1 winter (no stud). Breen: 5 winter stud. Hanninen/Latvala: 4 winter stud + 2 winter (no stud).
21. 01. 2017 08:30 CET 9 SS was started at 8:29.
21. 01. 2017 08:23 CET 9 SS start will be futher delayed due to safety reasons (spectators).
21. 01. 2017 08:16 CET 9 SS start will be delayed. Expected start time: 8:18.
23. 01. 2017 19:20 CET 8 (97 - Becx Michiel / Kuijpers Edwin): puncture
23. 01. 2017 19:20 CET 8 retired (112 - Marsic Cristian / Festa Daniela): accident in SS 8
23. 01. 2017 19:19 CET 8 (105 - Dolce Renaud / Ayasse Jean-Pierre): was out of road
23. 01. 2017 19:17 CET 8 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I'm disappointed because we found a good rhythm and then, in one corner there was some delay with the pace note. Ok, this guy is my team-mate - we are a team. We need to work together and get a good rhythm with the notes all the time.
21. 01. 2017 09:25 CET 8 retired (25 - Andolfi Fabio / Fenoli Manuel): accident in SS 8
20. 01. 2017 16:45 CET 8 flash info (40 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): A shame to get the puncture on the stage before, but it's like this. Otherwise a good day.
20. 01. 2017 16:44 CET 8 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): So difficult in the slippery conditions. I'm happy to get to the finish.
20. 01. 2017 16:40 CET 8 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): On the slower sections I didn't notice it, but I missed the aerodynamic benefit on the fast, clean roads.
20. 01. 2017 16:37 CET 8 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): A difficult day but I really enjoy this stage. Okay, it was difficult with the ice on the top, but we had a laugh on the way down - I love that section.
20. 01. 2017 16:34 CET 8 (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Slight off into a ditch. He lost a few seconds restarting the engine.
20. 01. 2017 16:33 CET 8 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): No drama for me. I'm happy. Conditions are tricky but we are here. I'm enjoying myself. A really good day.
20. 01. 2017 16:31 CET 8 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I spun in a very, very icy corner and had to reverse. We lost 10 sec there. Later on another hairpin I had a half spin. I think I lost about 20 seconds in today.
20. 01. 2017 16:28 CET 8 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): A really bad day. For me it's impossible to drive the car in stages like this, with the ice and the grip changing all the time. I didn't find confidence to drive the car in these conditions.
20. 01. 2017 16:28 CET 8 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We had a problem with the engine - we lost turbo boost. I stalled the engine a hairpin and did not press the reset button. It was not working properly. We drove for about 500 metres before we reset the system.
20. 01. 2017 16:27 CET 8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's been a tough day for sure. Tough conditions and the afternoon was not any easier. We had a better feeling with the car in the afternoon. Some improvement. Step-by-step.
23. 01. 2017 19:14 CET 7 retired (69 - Brazzoli Enrico / Barone Maurizio): retired in SS 7
23. 01. 2017 19:13 CET 7 (84 - Vukasovic Laurent / Groux Steve): was out of road
23. 01. 2017 19:11 CET 7 flash info (78 - Burri Olivier / Rey Stéphane): The ice crew didn’t give me enough details. So my performance is not as great as I had wished.
20. 01. 2017 16:18 CET 7 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Some damages at the rear of our car because in an icy corner my co-driver was a little bit late in a note.
20. 01. 2017 16:15 CET 7 (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): was out of road
20. 01. 2017 16:02 CET 7 flash info (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): A bit tricky and long stage, lost a few seconds.
20. 01. 2017 15:58 CET 7 flash info (40 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): A shame. I got a rear-left puncture. Maybe I slide and hit a rock. What can we do?
20. 01. 2017 15:52 CET 7 (40 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): puncture
20. 01. 2017 15:51 CET 7 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Better, cleaner than the first pass and easier to drive. There is still some slush in places - and that is worse than ice. No mistakes though. Pleased to be here.
20. 01. 2017 15:49 CET 7 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): A little better. I hope to improve the rhythm on the next stage. A good day for us.
20. 01. 2017 15:46 CET 7 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Still the same, the grip is incredibly low, but hey, we're still here and still learning.
20. 01. 2017 15:45 CET 7 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Too much black stuff here, I'm afraid. Big wide open roads and these [other] guys are just putting the power down.
20. 01. 2017 15:44 CET 7 (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): the Estonian reports a downshifting issue. He leaves to investigate.
20. 01. 2017 15:42 CET 7 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I'm pleased. This was the first stage today when I was focused only on the driving. No other issues. I'm really pleased with the car - it has lots of performance and a lot of potential.
20. 01. 2017 15:38 CET 7 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Really slippery everywhere. Not nice to drive. Sometimes there's grip, sometimes none. It's not easy to build the confidence when it's like this. I'm happy to be at the finish.
20. 01. 2017 15:38 CET 7 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The stage was okay but to be honest my pace notes had too much snow and ice. The road was cleaner that I expected. I dropped too much.
20. 01. 2017 15:34 CET 7 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's definitely a hard job to drive with the slush now. I do what I can, but in very wet snow it is incredibly slippery and I was aquaplaning. We did what we could. We made some small adjustments in service - the car feels better.
23. 01. 2017 19:03 CET 6 (95 - Boisdron Thierry / Preteseille Frédéric): puncture
23. 01. 2017 19:03 CET 6 (84 - Vukasovic Laurent / Groux Steve): was out of road
23. 01. 2017 19:02 CET 6 (38 - Bergkvist Emil / Sjöberg Joakim): puncture
20. 01. 2017 16:53 CET 6 retired (75 - Abbring Kevin / Wydaeghe Martijn): accident in SS 6
20. 01. 2017 16:52 CET 6 (75 - Abbring Kevin / Wydaeghe Martijn): broken rear suspension after touching a wall
20. 01. 2017 15:31 CET 6 flash info (40 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): Okay. A much cleaner road than before but still very easy to make a mistake. The car is working well.
20. 01. 2017 15:30 CET 6 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I have a slow puncture on the front right. I finished very carefully.
20. 01. 2017 15:30 CET 6 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Okay, I'm just trying to come back to get second place in WRC 2.
20. 01. 2017 15:29 CET 6 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): The grip was better but quite tricky. We took it quite safely.
20. 01. 2017 15:28 CET 6 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): A bit more experience, a bit better grip, so the deficit is less but it's still tricky out there.
20. 01. 2017 15:27 CET 6 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Hats off to [my ice-crew driver] Mikko Hirvonen. Everything he's saying is spot on. Okay, a couple of squeaky bum moments in there - but that's how this rally is.
20. 01. 2017 15:27 CET 6 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The road was cleaner this time. It's melted since our ice crew went through - so we are finding things out for ourselves. I think we had a clean run, though, and that's the most important thing.
20. 01. 2017 15:26 CET 6 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We had a problem with the fuel on the road section. I was a bit stressed when I started the stage and I stalled on a hairpin.
20. 01. 2017 15:26 CET 6 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The road is really really slippery like before. There is snow, ice and water together. It is difficult to find the grip. We try to do our best but we're not quick enough.
20. 01. 2017 15:25 CET 6 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We are cleaning a bit the line for the cars behind. Overall, this was more tricky than the first pass - difficult to know how much speed to carry.
20. 01. 2017 15:25 CET 6 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): A little better than this morning but there is some slush around which is hard to handle. I think it will clear, so being first car is no so easy. A better feeling for me this time.
23. 01. 2017 18:49 CET 5 (81 - Boland Eamonn / Morrissey Michael Joseph): technical problems
23. 01. 2017 18:48 CET 5 (25 - Andolfi Fabio / Fenoli Manuel): problems with electrics
23. 01. 2017 18:48 CET 5 (67 - Panzani Luca / Grilli Federico): puncture
23. 01. 2017 18:47 CET 5 (61 - Althaus Cédric / Bayard Jessica): puncture
23. 01. 2017 18:46 CET 5 flash info (41 - Basso Giandomenico / Scattolin Simone): The car undergoes engine problems caused by broken alternator belt.
20. 01. 2017 16:52 CET 5 retired (41 - Basso Giandomenico / Scattolin Simone): technical problem - engine after SS 5
20. 01. 2017 12:38 CET 5 flash info (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Having fun! It's all about getting through every stage and get experience this weekend.
20. 01. 2017 12:37 CET 5 retired (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): accident in SS 5
20. 01. 2017 12:32 CET 5 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Honestly, I don't like these conditions... I have a good feeling with the car but I can't push more.
20. 01. 2017 12:31 CET 5 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I got a front-right puncture, don't know where it happened.
20. 01. 2017 12:29 CET 5 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Morning went quite well, very satisfying. Car works great.
20. 01. 2017 12:27 CET 5 (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): puncture
20. 01. 2017 12:25 CET 5 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): Hanninen is stopped on the road. It was not a problem for us. For me, this was the best stage of the morning, the confidence is coming.
20. 01. 2017 12:23 CET 5 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Conditions were more mixed here, there was more Tarmac. We tried to push a bit harder. It was better.
20. 01. 2017 12:21 CET 5 (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): stopped at 11.8km
20. 01. 2017 12:20 CET 5 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): A lot cleaner than the previous stage - where I spun twice. Conditions here make it a bit more level with the cars - but on the tarmac they [the 2017-spec cars] are getting away from me.
20. 01. 2017 12:17 CET 5 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It's okay. The rhythm is improving - more consistent now. Not a problem - we disconnected it (radio).
20. 01. 2017 12:14 CET 5 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Better now we have more tarmac on the road - but it's not been easy. We pushed the car out of parc ferme when it didn't start this morning - the team only got it going with two minute to spare. We have a misfire in the engine and the wrong set-up.
20. 01. 2017 12:10 CET 5 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We stalled the engine on an hairpin and lost some seconds. It's not a great time.
20. 01. 2017 12:10 CET 5 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was ok. My pace notes were a bit too slow at the end cause it was less ice than during the recces but no big problem
20. 01. 2017 12:07 CET 5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): More or less the same conditions. Okay, it's been a difficult morning but we are here - and that's not the case for everybody. It's not the best, but we keep going.
20. 01. 2017 11:54 CET 5 SS start was 5 minutes delayed.
23. 01. 2017 18:03 CET 4 retired (86 - Baffoun Philippe / Larue Bruno): retired in SS 4
23. 01. 2017 18:01 CET 4 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / De Turckheim Gilles): We don’t have any grip. I believe the spectators can run faster than we drive.
23. 01. 2017 18:00 CET 4 (78 - Burri Olivier / Rey Stéphane): was out of road
20. 01. 2017 16:46 CET 4 retired (34 - Kremer Armin / Winklhofer Pirmin): accident in SS 4
20. 01. 2017 16:42 CET 4 retired (83 - López José Maria / Rozada Borja): technical problem in SS 4
20. 01. 2017 11:52 CET 4 flash info (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): First time in these slippery conditions, need to learn. Difficult but enjoying it.
20. 01. 2017 11:45 CET 4 flash info (40 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): Okay. A nice stage. In a few places the snow is melting but I cannot complain.
20. 01. 2017 11:39 CET 4 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Still on the safe side - just exploring the car.
20. 01. 2017 11:38 CET 4 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): I have no direct experience in these conditions. Struggling for grip. Not so nice.
20. 01. 2017 11:36 CET 4 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): Okay. Not an easy stage, the grip was changing a lot. It's difficult to find and keep the rhythm. I'm quite happy though. The car is still good.
20. 01. 2017 11:35 CET 4 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It's been difficult for sure. Just a lot less grip on the ice than I expected. Still, could be worse...
20. 01. 2017 11:33 CET 4 retired (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): accident in SS 4
20. 01. 2017 11:32 CET 4 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Conditions was even worse that the previous stage. Obviously Kris has gone off. It's so, so simple to make a mistake so I'm trying to keep it neat and tidy. Taking it easy. I'm happy to get to the end.
20. 01. 2017 11:27 CET 4 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Front-left suspension damage.
20. 01. 2017 11:26 CET 4 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): My suspension is too stiff. We had a problem with the engine this morning - it didn't start. The team engineers fixed in service but that meant there wasn't enough time to adjust the suspension.
20. 01. 2017 11:24 CET 4 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Very, very slippery. Difficult conditions. Hard to read the road. No drama. We drive safely.
20. 01. 2017 11:20 CET 4 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): stopped on stage
20. 01. 2017 11:20 CET 4 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The grip is not that good. Very tricky. I stalled the engine on a hairpin near the end. I tried to be as clean as possible. Not much grip near the end - probably the studs had gone.
20. 01. 2017 11:19 CET 4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Pretty slippy once again, but at least no mistakes from me in this one. The road is a mix of everything. The problem is when there is snow - the thin layer is very, very slippy. I'm not happy with everything on the car at the moment.
23. 01. 2017 18:55 CET 3 retired (98 - Dessi Marc / Dessi Vanessa): retired after SS 3
20. 01. 2017 12:03 CET 3 (75 - Abbring Kevin / Wydaeghe Martijn): was out of road

20. 01. 2017 11:01 CET 3 flash info (42 - Crugnola Andrea / Ferrara Michele): We made a small hit because of a slight mistake. Our rear left axle was opened. The rest of the day will be complicated.
20. 01. 2017 11:00 CET 3 flash info (40 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): I wasn’t at ease, it is too slippery. We lost a lot at the end compared to our adversaries.
20. 01. 2017 10:57 CET 3 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Different conditions to the recce. A lot of ice and I'm a little afraid after last year. I'm trying to find my confidence. Not easy for me.
20. 01. 2017 10:55 CET 3 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I didn't have so much experience in this snow and ice. I took it cautiously, lots more tricky stages to come.
20. 01. 2017 10:53 CET 3 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Really, really difficult. Just sliding around on the safe side. No risk.
20. 01. 2017 10:53 CET 3 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): All is okay today. I've never driven in these conditions. I take zero risks. The car is perfect.
20. 01. 2017 10:50 CET 3 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Nothing. It's just the grip I have. I went in the ditch once but that was just 10 seconds.
20. 01. 2017 10:49 CET 3 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): Okay. Nothing special. I lost some time passing Evans. Otherwise okay.
20. 01. 2017 10:45 CET 3 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Unbelievable. I've never seen anything like it in my life. I just tried to keep it neat and tidy. Trying to learn with every kilometres and see how we go.
20. 01. 2017 10:44 CET 3 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I can't believe after all that there's only a few seconds in it! It's a lottery. Some places are sheet ice - you lose a lot there. The snow's not so bad. It's easy to lose a minute here and not know why. So it's good.
20. 01. 2017 10:41 CET 3 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Really tricky - some bad moments. Some radio interference too, we could people in our team talking, and that was distracting.
20. 01. 2017 10:41 CET 3 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I'm sure we lost one minute near the end. There was a section of tarmac but you can't use it - it's so cold the tyres have no heat in them.
20. 01. 2017 10:40 CET 3 (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): was out of road
20. 01. 2017 10:38 CET 3 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Some places it felt not much faster than the recce. Not great at all. It's difficult to learn the grip on the surface. It's changing. We are really slow, no?
20. 01. 2017 10:36 CET 3 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was okay, some places a bit wide but I enjoyed the stage even though it was very slippery. I have a good balance with the car. It feels great.
20. 01. 2017 10:35 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It happened in a junction. Very, very icy. I pulled the handbrake but the car never turned. It was very slow - 10kph. Super tricky. First on the road is a disaster. I think it will get quicker. Not the start we wanted today.
20. 01. 2017 10:18 CET 3 (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Belgian was almost off at the same point of Ogier.
20. 01. 2017 10:17 CET 3 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): They were in a ditch after 2.5km. They are out of the ditch and underway again.
23. 01. 2017 20:18 CET 2 retired (20 - Serderidis Jourdan / Miclotte Fréderic): retired after SS 2
20. 01. 2017 10:01 CET 2 (114 - Fortunato Frédéric / Neto Lionel): was out of road

20. 01. 2017 09:57 CET 2 (101 - Poizot Thibaut / Arnaud Eva): problems with electrics
20. 01. 2017 09:57 CET 2 (82 - Carret Claude / Mathias Olivier): problems with engine
20. 01. 2017 09:56 CET 2 (27 - Noberasco Gabriele / Michi Daniele): problems with clutch
20. 01. 2017 09:55 CET 2 (69 - Brazzoli Enrico / Barone Maurizio): problems with engine
20. 01. 2017 09:54 CET 2 (65 - Pernía Surhayen / Peñate Rogelio): was out of the road
20. 01. 2017 09:53 CET 2 (63 - Martin Charles / Duval Matthieu): puncture
20. 01. 2017 09:52 CET 2 (83 - López José Maria / Rozada Borja): puncture
20. 01. 2017 09:51 CET 2 retired (23 - Dumas Romain / De Turckheim Gilles): accident in SS 2
20. 01. 2017 09:50 CET 2 retired (43 - Giordano Quentin / Roux Thomas): technical problem - engine after SS 2
20. 01. 2017 01:21 CET 2 retired (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): technical problem - clutch in SS 2
20. 01. 2017 00:31 CET 2 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Happy to finish this day. We only made one stage but it's fine, Happy of our car and of this time.
20. 01. 2017 00:30 CET 2 (23 - Dumas Romain / De Turckheim Gilles): went off the road
20. 01. 2017 00:29 CET 2 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It was chaos. We started with cold tyres and I passed a Porsche in stage when it went off. It's my first time ever in this car on slicks. I tried to get used to them on the road section but it's different! Safely though. No risks. It will be a long rally.
20. 01. 2017 00:25 CET 2 flash info (21 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): A good start. It's a new car and the most important thing is to get to the finish.
20. 01. 2017 00:22 CET 2 (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): small spin
20. 01. 2017 00:22 CET 2 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): So it was okay, a reasonable start. Not an easy start - we had to wait for half an hour [on the start line] and everything was cold. I know the car is good - it's up to the driver now.
20. 01. 2017 00:20 CET 2 flash info (75 - Abbring Kevin / Wydaeghe Martijn): My first rally with new co-driver Martijn Wydaeghe. So it will take time to settle in.
20. 01. 2017 00:20 CET 2 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Overall, pretty happy with the first stage in the new car.
20. 01. 2017 00:18 CET 2 (38 - Bergkvist Emil / Sjöberg Joakim): Transmission problems and a spin
20. 01. 2017 00:16 CET 2 flash info (40 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): Happy to be here. More gravel than I was expecting but less ice too.
20. 01. 2017 00:13 CET 2 flash info (43 - Giordano Quentin / Roux Thomas): Engine. I think it broke 5km before the finish. That's the fifth time. I'm so bored. I think the rally is finished for me.
20. 01. 2017 00:07 CET 2 flash info (36 - Bonato Yoann / Boulloud Benjamin): I have a pop-off valve problem, which is normal. And the tyres feel strange. A long way to go. I must be patient.
20. 01. 2017 00:06 CET 2 flash info (35 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): Bad. A big problem with my brakes. It was impossible to brake hard.
20. 01. 2017 00:03 CET 2 flash info (34 - Kremer Armin / Winklhofer Pirmin): The end was really slippery and difficult. A lot of mud and water in the cuts. We are on the maximum for the grip.
20. 01. 2017 00:01 CET 2 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Much better than on recce, but still some icy patches where I need to build my confidence. I'd be happy to have the similar pace to Andreas Mikkelsen on a couple of stages.
19. 01. 2017 23:57 CET 2 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I'm in a race of my own here but I'm happy with that stage to be honest. In a few places my pace notes weren't great but I'm pleased to get through okay.
19. 01. 2017 23:53 CET 2 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Quite tricky, a lot of stuff on the road. We knew about the ice, but it was hard to see - very patchy. A steady start.
19. 01. 2017 23:50 CET 2 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Very tricky. The car felt fine but I'm really struggling to get a rhythm. It is very challenging but we are through. That's the main thing.
19. 01. 2017 23:50 CET 2 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Quite a demanding stage. Some damp, some dry places, some ice. I was very, very careful. I lost more time in the ice but I wanted to make sure we made no mistakes. I am surprised by the time difference. If you are confident on the ice you can make the difference.
19. 01. 2017 23:49 CET 2 (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): was out of road
19. 01. 2017 23:47 CET 2 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I don't know. The time felt really good. Better than I expected. The car is good, it felt really fast in the corners.
19. 01. 2017 23:47 CET 2 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was okay. Maybe too soft - the car was moving about too much. I didn't like it but I tried to do my best.
19. 01. 2017 23:46 CET 2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Happy to be here after two tricky night stages. It's hard to start in the dark. The main aim was to get through safely. Quite a bit of loose gravel in here, it was slippery but not a bad stage. Maybe too careful in places. It was fun.
19. 01. 2017 23:18 CET 2 SS started at 23:18.
19. 01. 2017 22:27 CET 2 First 8 crews will run in 3 minutes interval.
19. 01. 2017 22:27 CET 2 SS start will be 10 minutes delayed (new start time: 23:07).
23. 01. 2017 20:08 CET 17 flash info (98 - Dessi Marc / Dessi Vanessa): It’s my 37th or 38th Monte, my aim is to compete 50 Monte Carlos! Then, we’ll see if I keep on or not. This year’s edition was very emotional and pretty hectic. But that’s what I love!
23. 01. 2017 20:07 CET 17 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / De Turckheim Gilles): I’m glad I made a mistake concerning the tyres this morning! If I had chosen soft, I’m pretty confident I would still be in the stage!
23. 01. 2017 20:06 CET 17 flash info (101 - Poizot Thibaut / Arnaud Eva): The WRC3 victory slips through our fingers. Perhaps I should have gone faster downhill. But that’s the way the rally is.
23. 01. 2017 20:06 CET 17 flash info (35 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): We expected a better result but it’s already nice to be at the end of the rally.
23. 01. 2017 20:04 CET 17 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): The stage was fine even if it was tough! All in all, I’m quite disappointed with my performance.
23. 01. 2017 20:04 CET 17 flash info (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): The stage was very slippery. We are very disappointed that we got a few seconds away from getting on the podium.
22. 01. 2017 13:26 CET 17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We hoped, but we didn´t expect it...
22. 01. 2017 13:19 CET 17 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's amazing. First time on a rally and to finish second is amazing. I'm really grateful to the team.
22. 01. 2017 13:17 CET 17 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It was tough work. Until today we did everything... I have to go...
22. 01. 2017 13:13 CET 17 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): That stage was unbelievable. It was a dreadful rally for me but I'm pleased to take some important points for Hyundai.
22. 01. 2017 13:10 CET 17 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): That was unbelievable. So slippery I could barely get stopped at the stop line, horrific conditions. It's been quite a good weekend. We've done some really good speed when the conditions were tricky. Bring on Sweden!
22. 01. 2017 13:06 CET 17 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): This was rallying at its cruelest. Our snow tyres were in the boot and not in the car! We were like Bambi on ice. Tricky. On Friday I didn't think the rally would be as good as this - so much was new.
22. 01. 2017 12:55 CET 17 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We had two slicks here. I'm very happy for Skoda. Congratulations guys. In the car we did a good job. I hope to be in a Word Rally Car, that's where I belong. It is difficult but we are trying to find some solutions."
22. 01. 2017 12:50 CET 17 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Really happy to be here. We have a cross tyre choice here and I was driving very slowly just to get to the finish.
22. 01. 2017 12:49 CET 17 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): Really difficult with the soft tyre. It was very slippery at the finish. After the Col it was horrible. It was a difficult week for us. One fastest time this morning, but for this rally it was more important to take experience of the car.
22. 01. 2017 12:40 CET 17 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I pushed very hard in these tricky conditions. When I saw the snow coming I knew it would be hard. I know Juho had the snow tyres and we were quicker. I must thank the team, they have built an incredible car.
22. 01. 2017 12:24 CET 17 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): It was really tricky, I had snow tyres but in some places there was ice, and it was hard to see where exactly. Not easy stage if you need to push. A lot of positives to take from the rally. The team has done some great work.
22. 01. 2017 09:25 CET 17 SS17 running order (four minute intervals): 1.Hänninen, 2.Neuville, 3.Lefebvre, 4.Kopecký, 5. Mikkelsen, 6.Evans, 7.Breen, 8.Sordo, 9.Tänak, 10.Latvala, 11.Ogier, 12. Bouffier, 13.Tidemand
23. 01. 2017 20:04 CET 16 flash info (40 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): It’s over! It’s great. We are happy, we are third in WRC2 after a great struggle with the other competitors in the group.
22. 01. 2017 10:52 CET 16 Organisers cancel the stage on safety grounds. Too many spectators in the wrong places.
23. 01. 2017 19:58 CET 15 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): The stage went really well. We are still fighting for the position.
23. 01. 2017 19:58 CET 15 flash info (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): I didn’t know what tyres to choose, I did make the right choice but we still managed to take back some time for WRC2.
23. 01. 2017 19:57 CET 15 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): We made a gamble with a full set of soft tyres. It was slippery after Col de Turini.
22. 01. 2017 10:46 CET 15 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): No risk on the driving now, but for the mechanical side there's nothing I can do. It's a shame for Ott. I hope he can finish at least on the podium. That would be more than deserved. I really enjoy this car on the smooth roads.
22. 01. 2017 10:44 CET 15 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I knew this dry stage would be hard on the tyres. I've never been so gentle on my tyres before. I tried to do everything to save them. I didn't use the handbrake.
22. 01. 2017 10:43 CET 15 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I just need a bit more power. I tried to manage my tyres. Then on way down, like the Jamaican bobsleigh team, we just rolled with it and did our best.
22. 01. 2017 10:42 CET 15 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was ok, but I didn't go very well. Slow at the beginning.
22. 01. 2017 10:40 CET 15 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We decided for the super soft tyres but in the dry ascent... that meant the car was moving about a lot.
22. 01. 2017 10:38 CET 15 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): My tyres were completely overheated in mid-stage. Terrible stage.
22. 01. 2017 10:37 CET 15 (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): missed his start time, because fo repairing the engine after SS 14
22. 01. 2017 09:39 CET 15 snow falling at the finish of SS15. Light for now.
23. 01. 2017 19:54 CET 14 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / De Turckheim Gilles): We left with snow tyres, knowing it wasn’t the best choice for SS 14 but we need them for the Turini otherwise we wouldn’t get all the way up there.
22. 01. 2017 09:56 CET 14 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I enjoy. I think the time is good. I can't do more. I'm at home and I was flat out everywhere.
22. 01. 2017 09:55 CET 14 flash info (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): No risk. Clean run.
22. 01. 2017 09:54 CET 14 flash info (40 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): Quite good but when I see the times of the other guys it is not.
22. 01. 2017 09:53 CET 14 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Safe. We have nothing to lose. We just try to keep this pace. I don't know if I'm doing any more WRC 2 events this year so I try to enjoy every minute.
22. 01. 2017 09:52 CET 14 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): On the safe side now, we have a big gap. Just smiling and trying to enjoy the run...
22. 01. 2017 09:51 CET 14 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): I'm not so surprised on this combination of snow tyres and slicks. It is quite interesting to drive on the dry tarmac. Some snow would be good...
22. 01. 2017 09:50 CET 14 (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): spin in one hairpin in SS 14
22. 01. 2017 09:49 CET 14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It is ok, just try and cruise to the finish.
22. 01. 2017 09:48 CET 14 (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): engine problems in SS14
22. 01. 2017 09:47 CET 14 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I tried to be easy on the super soft tyres. I need them for the next stage.
22. 01. 2017 09:42 CET 14 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Dry. Tight corners and uphill sections in this type of car mean I'm praying for snow from the high heavens.
22. 01. 2017 09:41 CET 14 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Completely dry. We expect there might be some snow on the Col de Turini later so we have some snow tyres just in case...
22. 01. 2017 09:35 CET 14 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Our tyre choice was compromise here. We are not sure what's going to happen later, hopefully we'll get it right for the Power Stage...
22. 01. 2017 09:30 CET 14 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): A good stage for us. The guys have fixed it. I enjoyed the stage but you have to be careful. For sure now I am looking to the Power Stage...
22. 01. 2017 09:13 CET 14 Dry stages with possible weather changes. News from Michelin on Sunday's tyre choices. Tanak/Ogier/Neuville: 4 super soft 2 winter (non stud); Lefebvre: 4 soft 2 winter (non stud); Breen/Sordo: 2 soft 2 super soft 2 winter (non stud); Latvala: 4 super soft 2 winter stud; Hanninen: 2 super soft 4 winter (non stud)
23. 01. 2017 19:48 CET 13 retired (61 - Althaus Cédric / Bayard Jessica): accident in SS 13
21. 01. 2017 20:35 CET 13 retired (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): accident on road section after SS 13
21. 01. 2017 16:12 CET 13 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It happened in quite a slow left-hand corner. On the exit, on the throttle, the rear went wide and I hit something. I don't know what. I have to go now...
21. 01. 2017 15:49 CET 13 flash info (35 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): I don't have much experience of these dry stages. I need to work on my car set-up for them.
21. 01. 2017 15:48 CET 13 flash info (40 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): All good. Now the sun is out, we have the full asphalt set-up.
21. 01. 2017 15:44 CET 13 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): The road was far from clean. Okay, no snow, but a lot of pollution pulled out. It's good to explore the car in these more consistent conditions.
21. 01. 2017 15:44 CET 13 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): A good day. We are happy to be here at the finish.
21. 01. 2017 15:41 CET 13 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): I had a puncture on the second or third corner. I drove for a while before we stopped to change it.
21. 01. 2017 15:40 CET 13 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It was very disappointing to see Thierry off the road. I feel so sorry for him. He's done such a good rally, he deserved it. I'm gutted for him.
21. 01. 2017 15:37 CET 13 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): Difficult. I tried to push. I stalled in a hairpin and lost 5 or 6 seconds. I tried but difficult to find the limit after just one pass of this stage.
21. 01. 2017 15:35 CET 13 (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): puncture
21. 01. 2017 15:34 CET 13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Let's see but I'm sorry for Thierry - he was doing such a good job, with fabulous speed so far. We got some luck this weekend, some small mistake in here too, I touched a bank again, but nothing special.
21. 01. 2017 15:31 CET 13 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The power steering has gone. It went in a corner - flat out in sixth - I went straight off, unbelievable. Very lucky. I cannot drive like this.
21. 01. 2017 15:30 CET 13 (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Passed by Lefebvre. Rear-left suspension damage. Thierry and his co-driver Nicholas are working on the car.
21. 01. 2017 15:29 CET 13 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Really tricky. Not too happy with the car - a lot of understeer. Not so easy in the dirty places.
21. 01. 2017 15:28 CET 13 (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Rear-left puncture
21. 01. 2017 15:25 CET 13 (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Power steering problem.
21. 01. 2017 15:23 CET 13 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): A bit of fun. A bit of enjoyment to get back on this sort of surface. I think we can be quite pleased with the day.
21. 01. 2017 15:22 CET 13 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): This is some stage. The time doesn't really matter at this point in the game, but when you get this car on dry tarmac - boy-oh-boy. This is what it's all about.
21. 01. 2017 15:13 CET 13 tyres chosen for SS13: Tanak/Ogier/Neuville/Hanninen: 4 soft + 1 super soft. Lefebvre/Meeke/Breen/Latvala/Sordo: 5 soft.
23. 01. 2017 19:42 CET 12 (115 - Martini Eric / Pengial Guy): problems with powersteering
23. 01. 2017 19:41 CET 12 flash info (105 - Dolce Renaud / Ayasse Jean-Pierre): We damaged the radiator in SS11, we had to stop half - way to pour water and eggs in it. This stage lasted almost fifteen minutes.
21. 01. 2017 12:56 CET 12 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): We're on a bit of a test mission now. We have to get through this rally and look forward to the next one.
21. 01. 2017 12:55 CET 12 flash info (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): A clean run. No punctures this time. Good information from the ice crew.
21. 01. 2017 12:50 CET 12 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We are enjoying. We drove with four studs just to be on the safe side. All going to plan.
21. 01. 2017 12:45 CET 12 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): A difficult day for us. A power-steering problem earlier. Now we try to find a good set-up.
21. 01. 2017 12:43 CET 12 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I have the snow tyres this afternoon. This morning we were on slicks. It was the safe choice. We have a good lead, but we have to be clever.
21. 01. 2017 12:40 CET 12 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We knew it was an open area but I wasn't expecting so much dirt on the road. On the winter tyre we understeered. Okay, I could take a risk there because I knew it was only a field on the outside. I had to try and do a bit more here.
21. 01. 2017 12:40 CET 12 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): lucky to escape a wild slide into a field. He narrowly missed a sign post on has way back on.
21. 01. 2017 12:35 CET 12 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We managed to fix them between the stages and this one was a lot easier to drive.
21. 01. 2017 12:32 CET 12 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The afternoon has been better than the morning. I pushed maybe too hard in here - there were a few mistakes.
21. 01. 2017 12:31 CET 12 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The balance wasn't great - I prefer it when we have two-and-two.
21. 01. 2017 12:27 CET 12 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Getting the ice note info was difficult again, Scott was changing pace notes 10sec before we started. The drier the road gets the harder it is to fight with these guys. For me it's all about building experience - and wondering what it would be like to drive a 2017 car here.
21. 01. 2017 12:24 CET 12 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Conditions are better now but still tricky in places. Really difficult to read the road and read the grip. Difficult, but really enjoyable.
21. 01. 2017 11:02 CET 12 SS start will be delayed. Expected start time is 12:11.
23. 01. 2017 19:38 CET 11 (109 - Labrousse Fabien / Labrousse Jordy): puncture
23. 01. 2017 19:38 CET 11 (61 - Althaus Cédric / Bayard Jessica): was out of road
23. 01. 2017 19:37 CET 11 flash info (63 - Martin Charles / Duval Matthieu): The shift gear is broken, it’s really complicated to change the gears and we don’t have the reverse gear anymore.
23. 01. 2017 19:37 CET 11 (110 - Marenco Claudio / Ravano Arianna): was out of road
23. 01. 2017 19:36 CET 11 flash info (105 - Dolce Renaud / Ayasse Jean-Pierre): Everything went well until 150 meters from the arrival, we had a huge impact at the front. It broke the radiator, and now we have an important flooding.
23. 01. 2017 19:35 CET 11 flash info (78 - Burri Olivier / Rey Stéphane): The spare wheel got detached half-stage. I slowed down because I was afraid, it would knock us out.
21. 01. 2017 13:37 CET 11 retired (108 - Renchet Nicolas / Amoros Cédric): accident in SS 11
21. 01. 2017 12:14 CET 11 flash info (35 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): It's okay, we are still there.
21. 01. 2017 12:14 CET 11 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Better than this morning. The set-up is good.
21. 01. 2017 12:13 CET 11 flash info (40 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): The snow is melting quite a lot now. It's an interesting stage, you have a bit of everything in there.
21. 01. 2017 12:13 CET 11 (75 - Abbring Kevin / Wydaeghe Martijn): Front-right puncture 5km before the finish.
21. 01. 2017 12:10 CET 11 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I'm not comfortable but that's where we are at the moment.
21. 01. 2017 12:09 CET 11 flash info (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Like before we got it 10km before the finish. I don't know how it happened.
21. 01. 2017 12:08 CET 11 (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): front-left puncture
21. 01. 2017 12:07 CET 11 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Much better conditions in the lines this time.
21. 01. 2017 12:07 CET 11 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Cautious again. I have a big gap now and I want the win. I have to keep safe and stay concentrated.
21. 01. 2017 12:01 CET 11 flash info (11 - Hänninen Juho / Lindström Kaj): It was okay. A little bit wide on one left-hander. The grip is changing all the time.
21. 01. 2017 12:00 CET 11 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): I'm very sorry, I take zero risks.
21. 01. 2017 11:58 CET 11 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I tried to be smoother. We had mud on the windscreen and I couldn't clear it. With the sun in front the visibility was bad.
21. 01. 2017 11:56 CET 11 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think it was a good stage. I was happy with the rhythm, okay I needed some time to find that. This one was a good stage I think. My car is working fine.
21. 01. 2017 11:54 CET 11 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We have a very sick car, we have to go. It is changing gear all the time by itself. Power steering too.
21. 01. 2017 11:51 CET 11 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We adjusted the [differential ] pre-load and my driving. Last time here I started too fast and aggressive. Now I calm down on the Tarmac section and went better on the ice. I am happy with the stage.
21. 01. 2017 11:50 CET 11 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): A little bit happier with the road. More clear areas with good grip. I enjoy a bit more.
21. 01. 2017 11:49 CET 11 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): More black stuff this time, unfortunately. What can I do? When it's bone dry I can't do anything. I shouldn't really be looking at the times of the other guys.
21. 01. 2017 11:46 CET 11 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was okay but the tyres were moving a lot more, especially at the beginning. Higher temperatures I think. I might have pushed them over the limit.
21. 01. 2017 10:15 CET 11 For now, SS 11 is due to start at 11:19.
23. 01. 2017 19:32 CET 10 flash info (106 - Metiffiot Stéphane / Metiffiot Pierre André): Kris Meeke was ahead of us in the downhill of Col de Faye. It felt like a video game. That’s why the Monte Carlo is magic!
21. 01. 2017 11:34 CET 10 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): His technical problem on SS10 was related to the ignition switch
21. 01. 2017 10:16 CET 10 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): We had a problem with ignition and had to stop and do some repairs.
21. 01. 2017 10:09 CET 10 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): moving again
21. 01. 2017 10:07 CET 10 flash info (42 - Crugnola Andrea / Ferrara Michele): I had a hard knock on the front-right. I don't know what happened but now we have a bad vibration.
21. 01. 2017 10:02 CET 10 flash info (76 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Not easy, but we're here for the experience so we just need to keep going like this.
21. 01. 2017 10:01 CET 10 flash info (35 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): We had a spin near the finish.
21. 01. 2017 10:01 CET 10 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I'm too slow today. I need to come back.
21. 01. 2017 10:00 CET 10 flash info (31 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We are being very safe and careful. We have a really good gap. The win is ours to lose.
21. 01. 2017 09:54 CET 10 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Car parked off the road. The bonnet is up. Looks like a mechanical problem. No Rally 2 opportunity for Sunday on Rallye Monte-Carlo.
21. 01. 2017 09:48 CET 10 flash info (8 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): I lost power-steering near the start. The car was difficult to drive. Okay, now we have a service.
21. 01. 2017 09:45 CET 10 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had some understeer near the start so I had to slow the rhythm.
21. 01. 2017 09:43 CET 10 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Stopped in stage. 800 metres from the start.
21. 01. 2017 09:42 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was okay but I was quite cautious in the icy sections. Its okay, not so bad.
21. 01. 2017 09:41 CET 10 flash info (2 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We still have some gear shift issues. Like yesterday, struggling with the downshifts.
21. 01. 2017 09:39 CET 10 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Very disappointed. It is not going as I wanted. I don't know what is wrong but I thought I was driving well on this stage.
21. 01. 2017 09:36 CET 10 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Very fast. On these tyres in normal conditions it would have been nice, in some corners I was too cautious.
21. 01. 2017 09:34 CET 10 flash info (14 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Unfortunately we had a problem with our phone between the stages so I couldn't speak to our gravel note crew. A network problem I think. I didn't get the ice notes for the last five kilometres. Frustrating.
21. 01. 2017 09:33 CET 10 flash info (3 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): This one was really tricky. Frost under the trees and sunshine changing the situation all the time. We have a cross tyre choice here - so it was interesting in places!
21. 01. 2017 08:47 CET 10 SS start will be delayed.
19. 01. 2017 20:38 CET 1 SS is cancelled.
19. 01. 2017 20:33 CET 1 Stage is stopped due to accident of crew no. 4.
19. 01. 2017 20:32 CET 1 retired (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): accident in SS 1
19. 01. 2017 20:31 CET 1 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): A good start. Discovering the car to be honest, I did well but I can do better. My car was very soft, moving around.
19. 01. 2017 20:30 CET 1 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Definitely I took it on the safe side. Hard to find the limit in these conditions. For sure I could go faster, but... first stage of the year. A bit safe on the tyre choice and the driving.
