Information

Date and time SS Information
19. 08. 2018 11:49 CET 17 retired (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): retired before SS17
19. 08. 2018 11:49 CET 17 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I stalled the car on the first junction.
19. 08. 2018 11:48 CET 17 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Very much a deliberate run through there, as we saw on the first pass, Thierry's (Neuville) pace is too fast for me so I'm just keeping it on the road.
19. 08. 2018 11:47 CET 17 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I'm just trying to keep the pressure on. I'm trying to push hard but if I push in the wrong sections I have a lot of moments.
19. 08. 2018 11:45 CET 17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We had a clean stage and we tried to keep a good rhythm.
19. 08. 2018 11:44 CET 17 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I tried to save the tyres and I wasn't too smooth with the handbrake at the hairpins so I stalled twice.
19. 08. 2018 11:43 CET 17 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Tricky stage, little bit more happy with the driving on that one.
19. 08. 2018 11:42 CET 16 (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): transmission problem
19. 08. 2018 11:39 CET 16 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Very clean, I saw from the beginning the lines were far away from the road, there was everything on the road from trees to bushes!
19. 08. 2018 11:38 CET 16 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I went really fast in a right corner and I hit all the vineyards, it broke the screen and I can't see anything. The temperature is a little bit high so I think I damaged something.
19. 08. 2018 11:38 CET 16 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I went really fast in a right corner and I hit all the vineyards, it broke the screen and I can't see anything. The temperature is a little bit high so I think I damaged something.
19. 08. 2018 11:37 CET 16 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): stopped in SS16
19. 08. 2018 11:35 CET 16 retired (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): out off the road in SS16
19. 08. 2018 11:35 CET 16 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Really tricky stage, I made a couple of mistakes where I went into the field but I always saved it.
19. 08. 2018 11:34 CET 16 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It is a tricky stage, quite a bit dirty. It coming from the front cars.
19. 08. 2018 11:33 CET 16 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I did some changes to the car yesterday and for me it was in the worse direction. I lost the rear on the some of the medium...fast sections in there and after that I didn't trust it at all.
19. 08. 2018 11:32 CET 16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): All of this means Neuville is going up so he will catch more points!
19. 08. 2018 11:31 CET 16 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Ok, the car is really nice to drive.
18. 08. 2018 19:05 CET 15 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It was a mega fight today with Seb, we were pushing really hard. I must say I was not feeling too comfortable on the first loop. It is a big shame for Seb.
18. 08. 2018 19:04 CET 15 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I pushed as much as I can, now it is full risk because I have nothing to lose any more. It is disappointing for sure, at this moment you just want to cry. We had a strong performance this weekend and you don't get the reward for it.
18. 08. 2018 19:04 CET 15 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We are not really on the pace, we struggle a bit with the handling. If you push hard it is easy to make a mistake and I did one earlier.
18. 08. 2018 19:04 CET 15 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was a big push out there I tell you. There was a bit of a moment on the gravel early on but it was ok. These fights are great, you really have to push yourself.
18. 08. 2018 18:55 CET 15 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): Looks like I lost a little bit of time.
18. 08. 2018 18:50 CET 15 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Step-by-step we are improving, but much better than yesterday.
18. 08. 2018 18:50 CET 15 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I tried, I didn't have a good start to the stage and I just got caught out by some loose.
18. 08. 2018 18:49 CET 15 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We keep on working and finding out things. We're taking steps, that is the main thing. Now I try to use a little bit more handbrake, it is not the most efficient way to turn the car but it seems to work.
18. 08. 2018 18:49 CET 15 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It has been a good day from that side so I can be quite happy for this day that I have been improving and making some good times. But there are some things I would like to improve - driving fast in the corners.
18. 08. 2018 18:49 CET 15 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): The car just stalled, you cannot pull the handbrake without the car stalling. We're just going through all the things that can go wrong really.
18. 08. 2018 18:47 CET 15 (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): was out of road
18. 08. 2018 19:12 CET 14 retired (40 - Huttunen Jari / Linnaketo Antti): retired before SS 14
18. 08. 2018 19:02 CET 14 Stage was stopped.
18. 08. 2018 18:46 CET 14 (37 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): damaged wheel
18. 08. 2018 18:26 CET 14 retired (47 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): technical problem - alternator before SS 14
18. 08. 2018 18:12 CET 14 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): There is nothing about pushing any more. In the tricky places I was just being careful and on the smooth asphalt I can just push. The balance is a lot better than it was earlier as well.
18. 08. 2018 18:12 CET 14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Unfortunately we will get not so much out of this rally, but what can you do at this moment? We were trying hard, but it is part of the game.
18. 08. 2018 18:12 CET 14 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had a very good stage to be honest, but I think we are a little too stiff on the springs, with the speed I am driving we should be on the pace.
18. 08. 2018 18:12 CET 14 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is a big fight, we had a very, very good stage. Dani has been pushing harder than this morning so it is going to be quite a battle.
18. 08. 2018 18:11 CET 14 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): The mirrors in this rally are kind of in a bad place with the chicanes! I can't do more on this stage, it was better than this morning though.
18. 08. 2018 18:11 CET 14 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Couldn't come faster to be honest, quite a clean stage.
18. 08. 2018 18:11 CET 14 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I'm enjoying it, it is just class being in the middle of something. In the last few rallies I've been out on my own opening the road, or near to it, but this is just class.
18. 08. 2018 18:11 CET 14 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We had an okay stage, I tried to be a little more aggressive now with the handbrake.
18. 08. 2018 18:10 CET 14 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I will drive for the time if needed, but I'm really sure Seb has good pace so I can go full throttle and he will pass me.
18. 08. 2018 18:10 CET 14 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Very slippery, not really a line for me. I think when the other WRC drivers come there will be a clean line. I tried my best, but for sure I think it will get faster this time.
18. 08. 2018 18:25 CET 13 retired (95 - Tavelli Gianluca / Cottollero Nicolo): retired in SS 13
18. 08. 2018 18:24 CET 13 retired (91 - Kristensson Tom / Appelskog Henrik): retired in SS 13
18. 08. 2018 18:24 CET 13 retired (84 - Bedoret Sebastien / Walbrecq Thomas): retired in SS 13
18. 08. 2018 18:23 CET 13 retired (32 - Greensmith Gus / Loudon Stuart): retired in SS 13
18. 08. 2018 18:22 CET 13 retired (39 - Bonato Yoann / Boulloud Benjamin): retired in SS 13
18. 08. 2018 16:50 CET 13 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We had a puncture on the previous one actually. On this stage it was a bit distracting at points because I saw Seb so close to me and I backed off a little bit.
18. 08. 2018 16:49 CET 13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Don't know how it happened, same line like always. We know it is a bit of lottery with the rocks.
18. 08. 2018 16:49 CET 13 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): puncture
18. 08. 2018 16:48 CET 13 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): That's part of the game obviously and you can see what happened to me last year, a puncture for Seb I guess? The car was good, I kept a clean rhythm and didn't take any risks.
18. 08. 2018 16:48 CET 13 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I'm happy with the car and with the performance on this stage. In the morning this stage was also good for us. I want to do well on the next two stages because the Toyotas look like they're faster.
18. 08. 2018 16:48 CET 13 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Not perfect for sure, it is hard to manage. I think my tyre management is okay but I am just missing the perfect feeling.
18. 08. 2018 16:48 CET 13 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Didn't push as much as I wanted in there. I had a bad tyre in that one, thankfully there is a tyre fitting zone next.
18. 08. 2018 16:47 CET 13 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): stopped in stage, continue
18. 08. 2018 16:47 CET 13 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I was struggling with the tyres, it was difficult to manage them but it was only my second time ever with the WRC car here and maybe that is part of the learning.
18. 08. 2018 16:46 CET 13 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I'm not so happy to see my time in there because the feeling with the car was better but the time was worse. I just need more time in the car basically just so I can understand how you drive it.
18. 08. 2018 16:46 CET 12 flash info (31 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): We just need to focus now on our performance which has to be perfect.
18. 08. 2018 16:46 CET 12 flash info (22 - Griebel Marijan / Rath Alexander): A lot of spectators here, I enjoyed it quite a lot but unfortunately we have intercom problems.
18. 08. 2018 16:45 CET 12 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I had a good clean run, the feeling was better. There was no risk, but I was more happy. I'm happy to go for the long one now.
18. 08. 2018 16:45 CET 12 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We are trying our best, it was a good clean stage to us.
18. 08. 2018 16:45 CET 12 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I could not match his time. I had a really good stage, but obviously he has something I couldn't find in the setup yet.
18. 08. 2018 16:45 CET 12 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is a great battle, I thought I had a good run but it seems Dani is even faster.
18. 08. 2018 16:44 CET 12 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): Looked like the car is working really well in these conditions. I am really confident when the surface is like this. The problem is I was slower on the last two stages before this.
18. 08. 2018 16:44 CET 12 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Not a clean run, a lot of dirt on the roads. A few mistakes but quite ok.
18. 08. 2018 16:44 CET 12 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Made a little change in service, definitely feeling confident with the whole thing. Just conserving the tyres so I can go like the clappers in the next one.
18. 08. 2018 16:44 CET 12 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We try as good as we can. Maybe it was a bit better now, we made some changes - very small.
18. 08. 2018 16:43 CET 12 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It was ok, nothing special. I want to do my best and hope to be faster.
18. 08. 2018 16:43 CET 12 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It felt a little bit better, but I had less grip in the car as well. The time is better but it is still a bad time. It felt faster than the time shows.
18. 08. 2018 18:18 CET 11 retired (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): accident in SS 11
18. 08. 2018 18:18 CET 11 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It has been better. The road characteristics have changed, it has been much cleaner.
18. 08. 2018 18:17 CET 11 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It is going in the right direction, but on the last stage I made mistakes on four or five stages.
18. 08. 2018 12:50 CET 11 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Our main target this afternoon is to find more balance and have another good loop.
18. 08. 2018 12:48 CET 11 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Top of the times is always Toyota. I am really pushing, on the last stage I did a perfect stage. It looks almost impossible but I am pushing as hard as I can without being stupid.
18. 08. 2018 12:48 CET 11 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): There's no chance for us to resist against their speed. I am pushing really hard. This stage I didn't do last year and I am really on the edge.
18. 08. 2018 12:47 CET 11 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Not completely satisfied with my performance, some of the guys were a bit quicker than me, maybe I was braking too late.
18. 08. 2018 12:46 CET 11 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I'll try and get as high as this car will let me.
18. 08. 2018 12:46 CET 11 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I'm trying the best I can, trying different things in every junction trying to make it work. Germany has a lot of junctions.
18. 08. 2018 12:44 CET 11 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): The times have not been horrible. We're trying to work to take away some of the understeer.
18. 08. 2018 12:08 CET 10 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We had a lot of wrong information from our gravel crew.
18. 08. 2018 12:07 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): All Toyota in front like always. I had a really good stage, I can't do any more. I was on the limit.
18. 08. 2018 12:07 CET 10 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I really pushed hard on this stage so it must be something not working properly.
18. 08. 2018 12:06 CET 10 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We had a spin on the very first hairpin, I touched the throttle and it went round like a Mk2 Escort.
18. 08. 2018 12:05 CET 10 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is a very interesting fight and really, really good. Esapekka (Lappi) is also charging now so he is getting closer!
18. 08. 2018 12:05 CET 10 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): This type of stages we have a lot of understeer. I don't have grip in the front. I do as much as I can but the Toyotas seem fast in these types of roads.
18. 08. 2018 12:04 CET 10 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I'm struggling to get the timing right. When I'm braking the car wants to go straight.
18. 08. 2018 12:04 CET 10 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): A lot of things I need to improve, mainly in the corners...on the straights I can't go much faster.
18. 08. 2018 12:03 CET 10 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): A lot cleaner stage in there but still quite a lot of understeer.
18. 08. 2018 18:15 CET 9 retired (103 - Kunisawa Mitsuhiro / Kihara Masahiko): retired after SS 9
18. 08. 2018 18:06 CET 9 (39 - Bonato Yoann / Boulloud Benjamin): puncture
18. 08. 2018 18:05 CET 9 retired (35 - Solans Nil / Ibañez Miquel): accident in SS 9
18. 08. 2018 18:05 CET 9 retired (36 - Loubet Pierre-Louis / Landais Vincent): broken wheel in SS 9
18. 08. 2018 18:05 CET 9 (31 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): puncture
18. 08. 2018 18:04 CET 9 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I don't know, I don't really know what you're talking about. I don't think the missing front aero part will make much of a difference.
18. 08. 2018 10:22 CET 9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was very slippy and I expected higher grip.
18. 08. 2018 10:21 CET 9 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The car was not working at all. I cannot brake hard at all, and with the diff I am using at the moment I cannot do anything.
18. 08. 2018 10:20 CET 9 flash info (31 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): stopped in SS9
18. 08. 2018 10:20 CET 9 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was more slippery than we expected in the first one but then we would expect it to be the same for everyone.
18. 08. 2018 10:19 CET 9 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We have too much understeer. I don't know if I'm driving a bit too aggressively, we'll have to calm it down.
18. 08. 2018 10:18 CET 9 (39 - Bonato Yoann / Boulloud Benjamin): stopped in SS9
18. 08. 2018 10:15 CET 9 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): We're just trying to manage the tyres.
18. 08. 2018 10:15 CET 9 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I really normally loved this stage, last year we almost won it. Far from that pace now I feel, I am trying the best I can in the junction. I'm really struggling to know what to do in the junctions.
18. 08. 2018 10:14 CET 9 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It was a big surprise how much we needed to manage the tyres. Ok it wasn't tricky, but it was a big surprise to have to do it during the rally while competing with the others.
18. 08. 2018 10:13 CET 9 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): No, not a better feeling. Okay the power is there but the car was not nice through there. We did a set-up change and it didn't work, there was lots of understeer especially when I tried to go on the throttle.
18. 08. 2018 17:44 CET 8 retired (105 - Klein Marius / Grimberg Hans-Joachim): retired in SS 8
18. 08. 2018 17:43 CET 8 retired (49 - Suárez José António / Carrera Cándido): retired before SS 8
18. 08. 2018 10:10 CET 8 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): For sure it is dirty, but the rhythm was not great and I felt a bit stiff.
18. 08. 2018 10:09 CET 8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I didn't expect such a dirty stage. It was low grip.
18. 08. 2018 10:09 CET 8 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I just struggled a little bit with the handling. Especially in the tight corners, I have no grip. It is getting more dirty so that is challenging.
18. 08. 2018 10:08 CET 8 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Quite slippy in some places. I didn't feel the grip was the best.
18. 08. 2018 10:07 CET 8 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I didn't drive very well in some hairpins, I tried to push but I think in a few little places I will have lost a bit of time.
18. 08. 2018 10:07 CET 8 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Not easy to find a rhythm...
18. 08. 2018 10:06 CET 8 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I was wide at one junction ... there is room to improve.
18. 08. 2018 10:05 CET 8 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Just braked on the gravel, went wide a bit on the gravel but that's how it is when starting first on the road.
17. 08. 2018 19:49 CET 7 retired (106 - Wecker Josef / Clemens Stefan): retired in SS 7
17. 08. 2018 19:05 CET 7 (32 - Greensmith Gus / Loudon Stuart): problems with driveshaft
17. 08. 2018 18:56 CET 7 flash info (31 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): The conditions were not easy today, hopefully tomorrow it will be dry. I think the pace is nice, if I had to push more I think I would make small mistakes, and small mistakes can affect this rally.
17. 08. 2018 18:56 CET 7 flash info (22 - Griebel Marijan / Rath Alexander): This stage was really good, I was trying to push hard on this. The WRC 2 cars are really fast on this and I think I beat them on every stage so far, but only just.
17. 08. 2018 18:51 CET 7 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I've learnt how to drive this car on asphalt, it has been a really nice experience and hopefully we have similar tomorrow.
17. 08. 2018 18:50 CET 7 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I struggled a bit in places, I don't think our road position helped much but it should be more level tomorrow.
17. 08. 2018 18:50 CET 7 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It is never easy, but what can we do? Mistakes happen and unfortunately it happened to us today. It is not easy to do this stage with less power, it upsets the rhythm.
17. 08. 2018 18:50 CET 7 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I was hoping we could do something in here. I wanted to push and we had a clean run. Not completely satisfied with the one before this.
17. 08. 2018 18:49 CET 7 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's been a good fight with Elfyn. I've been pushing really hard, I've made a few small mistakes and that happens when you're pushing hard.
17. 08. 2018 18:49 CET 7 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): The last two stages I think we have been going particularly well, we just stopped trail braking and rolling into the corners. It takes a while to change 10 years of driving style but it is getting better and better.
17. 08. 2018 18:49 CET 7 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): Tomorrow is another day, today I tried to push to the maximum and it was difficult to be in the fight because they were very fast in front.
17. 08. 2018 18:49 CET 7 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): No, the dust has got no better. I guess I just need more testing to see where the limit is in these dirty places. Let's see if we can improve for tomorrow.
17. 08. 2018 18:49 CET 7 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I can't complain. This morning it didn't feel perfect but still the times were there, obviously the car had the speed and it was just a case of getting it more comfortable to me. I'm actually quite enjoying it now.
17. 08. 2018 18:48 CET 7 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Yeah that is the good news of the day! It is hard to fight against the package of Ott and the Toyota. I think the aero is okay, the chassis worked very well.
17. 08. 2018 18:48 CET 7 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was difficult but to be honest we were on it all the time and we pushed very hard. We just hit a bit of a straw bale in a chicane. It is difficult for us to match the times of the guys running behind us.
17. 08. 2018 18:11 CET 6 retired (102 - Oldani Marco / D’Agostino Pietro): retired in SS 6
17. 08. 2018 18:11 CET 6 retired (95 - Tavelli Gianluca / Cottollero Nicolo): retired in SS 6
17. 08. 2018 17:13 CET 6 flash info (22 - Griebel Marijan / Rath Alexander): I'm really enjoying it, I made no mistakes. The tyres were the right choice I think so all is fine.
17. 08. 2018 17:11 CET 6 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I enjoy the stage now, the weather conditions are more equal for everybody. I want to improve, but from where we were in the morning we have already improved.
17. 08. 2018 17:11 CET 6 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It was a bit strange in some places to have a wet reference from this morning and then push harder this time.
17. 08. 2018 17:11 CET 6 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): A mistake happens, it is clearly a mistake, nothing has broken.
17. 08. 2018 17:06 CET 6 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I would rather have beat Latvala! But no problems in there.
17. 08. 2018 17:05 CET 6 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I'm quite happy with the time we lost on this stage. It is a good step forward. There is still another step I need to do with the car. But I'm still not confident enough in the dirty places. We did some changes to the front differential.
17. 08. 2018 17:05 CET 6 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): The style reminds me of when I did this rally with Thierry before Christmas - the Monza Rally - when I was his passenger. I'm trying this new style with no trail braking at all.
17. 08. 2018 17:05 CET 6 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): It's just incredible. I just drive the maximum. For me it is was a clear stage. I can do nothing more.
17. 08. 2018 17:05 CET 6 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I just don't know what to do to be honest. Clearly I'm not brave enough but I feel that I'm on the limit. I need to analyse what Tänak is doing differently.
17. 08. 2018 17:04 CET 6 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Still faster than Seb! The conditions are so, so tricky. We don't want to do any mistakes. In these conditions it is tough to drive.
17. 08. 2018 17:07 CET 5 retired (105 - Klein Marius / Grimberg Hans-Joachim): retired in SS 5
17. 08. 2018 16:54 CET 5 retired (82 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Wicha Klaus): accident in SS 5
17. 08. 2018 16:22 CET 5 flash info (22 - Griebel Marijan / Rath Alexander): This one was really enjoyable, no rain, no intercom problems. I just drove it and it was a lot of fun.
17. 08. 2018 16:15 CET 5 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I'm feeling that I'm doing better and better. I was struggling with the rhythm a bit at the beginning and lost a few seconds.
17. 08. 2018 16:15 CET 5 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I said there at the end that I can't release it and let it flow like I wanted. I'm in the ballpark but I wanted to be in the fight for a podium.
17. 08. 2018 16:15 CET 5 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I don't know, we have an engine problem and I have lost power. We did a mistake and we don't have engine power. It feels the same problem that we had yesterday.
17. 08. 2018 16:10 CET 5 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I don't really know where we are overall, but it was a good clean stage. The balance was a lot better than the first run that's for sure.
17. 08. 2018 16:10 CET 5 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is an ok time, I can see Tänak and Ogier are going fast. I can't match them that's for sure.
17. 08. 2018 16:10 CET 5 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I try to work again more and I had a good look in service to try and understand even more. Did some adjustments, it feels very unnatural, but maybe they'll feel natural in time.
17. 08. 2018 16:09 CET 5 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): My target is to go a bit higher than Lappi, the people in front are really fast and it is difficult. Some places are really dirty and slippy, it is hard to find the limit.
17. 08. 2018 16:09 CET 5 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Full poison for me, so no chance.
17. 08. 2018 16:09 CET 5 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): This one is like a normal German challenge again, it was quite tricky in places. It is very messy, it is like polished mud in places.
17. 08. 2018 16:09 CET 5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): At least I can judge from Thierry that it was good, but we have to wait to Ott. This morning we were missing a bit but now we will see.
17. 08. 2018 16:09 CET 5 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I don't know, I tried to push. You can always go faster but it is really tricky, there were plenty of places in my pace notes where it should have been muddy but it was completely dry. I also lost the bite on the brakes as well.
17. 08. 2018 13:22 CET 4 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It was an okay morning loop. A lot of things I need to improve. The little bit of damage was on the last stage, I hit something and I don't know what.
17. 08. 2018 13:21 CET 4 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Nice, enjoyable. Just unbelievable luck to get caught on the rain on the previous one. I just can't believe our luck on Fridays.
17. 08. 2018 13:21 CET 4 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It is ok, it is always a tricky rally and this is like a new stage again. But the time is not good and that is a shame.
17. 08. 2018 13:21 CET 4 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The junctions are quite gravelly, it is just that point at the exit where you have to use the handbrake to get it round. Otherwise it is ok.
17. 08. 2018 13:21 CET 4 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is not good. Let's go to service and we'll be wiser.
17. 08. 2018 13:21 CET 4 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I just tried to work on my driving style. This car takes a different style than I'm doing. I'm just trying to work. I just try to be more aggressive on the steering wheel.
17. 08. 2018 13:20 CET 4 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I try to drive as fast as I can. It was difficult because there isn't much grip. I don't know the time but the feeling is good.
17. 08. 2018 13:20 CET 4 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): The feeling was ok to be honest. Just on the previous stage the end was so dirty and I'm not brave enough to drive on those sorts of conditions. I didn't like it and that's why I'm nervous when the dirt comes - I don't want to make a mistake.
17. 08. 2018 13:20 CET 4 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It was a very clean stage. I had everything good so it is going in a good rhythm at the moment. Stability is improving as well I guess.
17. 08. 2018 13:19 CET 4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was ok, much more grip than last year. Still a bit dusty but it was ok. Tried our best this morning, couldn't do much more than that.
17. 08. 2018 13:19 CET 4 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The car is working. I wasn't disturbed in the stage before, it was just a small leaking with oil. I think we were struggling this morning with dust, I think I have a little less rhythm in the corners because I'm driving fast and the times are not as quick as they should be.
17. 08. 2018 13:19 CET 4 Stage is dry.
17. 08. 2018 14:02 CET 3 retired (92 - Sesks Mārtiņš / Francis Renārs): retired after SS 3
17. 08. 2018 12:47 CET 3 flash info (32 - Greensmith Gus / Loudon Stuart): Aquaplained off into a curb and lost my rear left wheel. 3 wheels for 2km but fixed now.
17. 08. 2018 12:34 CET 3 Rain started.
17. 08. 2018 12:34 CET 3 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I had a massive rain shower in the middle of the stage, it was a full wet road for abut 3 or 4km. Friday normally puts things upside down for me.
17. 08. 2018 12:33 CET 3 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I struggled a bit on the hairpins. It is very difficult to use the handbrake and when you have such little time in the car it is difficult. At one of the hairpins I span.
17. 08. 2018 12:33 CET 3 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was an ok stage, I pushed very hard. The grip has been surprising low this morning.
17. 08. 2018 12:33 CET 3 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I have no idea, I don't know the times. Some places I was hesitating. Yeah, that's a bad time.
17. 08. 2018 12:32 CET 3 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I had a half-spin in that one. If I push harder then I have understeer. I tried to change my driving style but I can't seem to figure it out.
17. 08. 2018 12:32 CET 3 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I tried to do my best.
17. 08. 2018 12:32 CET 3 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I didn't feel so bad. I tried my best, I lost a little bit of confidence towards the end, it was a little bit slippy. But for sure I wasn't expecting to lose that much time.
17. 08. 2018 12:31 CET 3 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): To be honest I am not fully happy with car yet, the stability is struggling a bit in tricky places. We're learning all the time, I've never done this rally in the Yaris before.
17. 08. 2018 12:31 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It is a dirty stage in places, a bit slippery. But we are trying to drive clever and it is not so bad.
17. 08. 2018 12:25 CET 3 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had the feeling like I was doing a good stage this time. I don't know if there is dust on the stage or something because it is very low grip.
17. 08. 2018 12:47 CET 2 (43 - Kreim Fabian / Christian Frank): puncture
17. 08. 2018 12:21 CET 2 retired (108 - Schwinn Sebastian / Stengl Lisa): retired before SS 2
17. 08. 2018 12:21 CET 2 flash info (32 - Greensmith Gus / Loudon Stuart): No test, big accident and only five slower than Jan so I'll take that after this week. Some areas could have been a bit better but I'll take that. Big thanks to Stu Loudon for stepping in.
17. 08. 2018 12:21 CET 2 flash info (31 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It is nice, the stage is fully dry. You have to be careful because the WRC cars are cutting everywhere and it is quite slippery.
17. 08. 2018 12:20 CET 2 flash info (22 - Griebel Marijan / Rath Alexander): Definitely it is not easy, this car is so amazing fast. The end of the stage wasn't the best with the rhythm.
17. 08. 2018 12:20 CET 2 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I was able to enjoy, but a lot of challenges with a new car on a new surface, but just need to improve the driving.
17. 08. 2018 12:20 CET 2 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Yeah incredibly polluted. I was so cautious not to make any mistakes and to get brakings in on time. It was a clean run though, no moments.
17. 08. 2018 12:19 CET 2 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I was very happy with that to be honest, I enjoyed the stage to be honest. To have been away from asphalt for so long and to come back and be relatively competitive is good.
17. 08. 2018 12:19 CET 2 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Quite a lot of understeer which is surprising compared to what we had in the shakedown. Many sections are already very dirty and very difficult.
17. 08. 2018 12:19 CET 2 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is in the ballpark of Seb's time. There are places where the dirt is coming onto the asphalt so I had to be careful.
17. 08. 2018 12:19 CET 2 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We tried of course, I don't feel really perfect. We had a clean stage but I need to be more aggresive on the steering wheel and adjust my driving style a bit. The stage is getting very dirty as well.
17. 08. 2018 12:18 CET 2 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I didn't feel really good with the car. We need to improve for the next one, it was difficult.
17. 08. 2018 12:18 CET 2 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): There is big cuts near to the finish, I've been on the middle of the road. The time is not the fastest but quite a relaxed driver and very clean.
17. 08. 2018 12:18 CET 2 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It was a very clean run. I didn't feel too comfortable at high-speed, stability is not so nice.
17. 08. 2018 12:18 CET 2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It is very close. Basically same time. Feeling is good, but not so much grip this morning.
17. 08. 2018 12:18 CET 2 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I'm not happy with the rhythm, I struggle a bit with understeer and oversteer all the time. There are differing levels of grip. I was just not confident enough in the behaving.
16. 08. 2018 22:05 CET 1 Stage was interrupted. Other crews will obtain notional times.
16. 08. 2018 22:05 CET 1 retired (97 - Sørensen Lasse / Frederiksen Ole): accident in SS 1
16. 08. 2018 20:01 CET 1 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It doesn't matter, but I expected to have a little less grip and they were overheating which wasn't easy. Looking forward to tomorrow, it is going to be tough. It is always so nice to see the fans, it is going to be a good show for them and I hope I can get some strong points for the championship.
16. 08. 2018 20:01 CET 1 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): There are bales everywhere so it is easy to hit things. It is not a really enjoyable stage, it is so slow. But the real rally starts tomorrow.
16. 08. 2018 20:00 CET 1 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It was terrible, never had that bad a super special. It is tight for these cars and there is so much understeer. I guess it must be the same for everybody because it really is terrible.
16. 08. 2018 20:00 CET 1 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I'm a bit confused, it felt horrible. But about tomorrow, it's a challenge, for some ways I just like the challenge of this rally - that's why I like it, I like to beat the challenge.
16. 08. 2018 19:45 CET 1 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): We are doing quite well this year, we are here for fighting. Let's see tomorrow, it is a long day and a long rally.
16. 08. 2018 19:43 CET 1 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): They told us to wait, we stopped the car. Then with eight seconds until we started they gave us our time card and told us to start. We didn't get the car started right on time.
16. 08. 2018 19:41 CET 1 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I don't know, the car didn't start the slide as I thought and then I clipped the bale. It's not the end of the world.
16. 08. 2018 19:41 CET 1 (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): stopped on the roundabout
16. 08. 2018 19:38 CET 1 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I'm really looking forward to this one, the stages are looking great so let's wait and see.
16. 08. 2018 19:33 CET 1 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I have no power, I don't know why, but absolutely no power in the engine. I had to spin the wheels on the car because the engine kept dying all the time.
16. 08. 2018 19:31 CET 1 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It was nice, just enjoyed it. I grew up on asphalt, it's what I love.
16. 08. 2018 19:28 CET 1 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): This stage I felt a lot of understeer and needed to pull the handbrake way too much.
16. 08. 2018 19:25 CET 1 flash info (22 - Griebel Marijan / Rath Alexander): I was enjoying it as there was a lot of spectators from my home area. I was on the soft tyres and the car was moving around quite a bit, maybe the hard would have been better.
16. 08. 2018 19:25 CET 1 flash info (31 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Let's see tomorrow, but I think the competition is very high. It is nice to look around and see all these cars with really fast drivers.
16. 08. 2018 19:18 CET 1 flash info (32 - Greensmith Gus / Loudon Stuart): Body feels sore, mind feels good! Good to get that one out the way, it's a great stage for the fans.
16. 08. 2018 19:16 CET 1 flash info (43 - Kreim Fabian / Christian Frank): Really nice stage, very good for the spectators. A lot of fun and quite good.
16. 08. 2018 19:16 CET 1 (21 - Serderidis Jourdan / Miclotte Fréderic): tyre is off the rim
16. 08. 2018 19:15 CET 1 (21 - Serderidis Jourdan / Miclotte Fréderic): hit a kerb
16. 08. 2018 19:07 CET 1 Starting order: 1. Serderidis, 2. Kreim, 3. Greensmith, 4. Kopecký, 5. Griebel, 6. Suninen, 7. Breen, 8. Østberg, 9. Evans, 10. Latvala, 11. Mikkelsen, 12. Sordo, 13. Lappi, 14. Tänak, 15. Ogier, 16. Neuville
18. 08. 2018 10:05 CET flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Still struggling in the junctions with this new style. I find it easy in third gear or fourth gear but when it's tighter I'm still using my old style.
