29. 07. 2018 16:30 CET
23 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): There is full support behind us, I think that's how it needs to be done - when we all work together. In terms of the championship let's see where we end up.
29. 07. 2018 17:29
29. 07. 2018 16:29 CET
23 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I cannot believe that. That means a lot to me. I'm just really happy to be fighting again. I'm really happy! I'm really happy!
29. 07. 2018 17:28
29. 07. 2018 16:28 CET
23 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is an amazing feeling on the last stage. The landing was the worst I've had but it was a huge jump.
29. 07. 2018 17:28
29. 07. 2018 16:28 CET
23 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): I think it is too early to speak about the future but I'm happy with how the weekend...
29. 07. 2018 17:27
29. 07. 2018 16:27 CET
23 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I gave everything. The whole weekend I gave everything and there is not so much more that I can do. The most important is that we at least step in the right direction in the championship.
29. 07. 2018 17:27
29. 07. 2018 16:27 CET
23 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It's been quite tough, we haven't been able to muster fastest times. On Friday and Saturday I was the fastest driver in the team. It would be good to get the good results this year.
29. 07. 2018 17:26
29. 07. 2018 16:26 CET
23 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It's been not a terrible weekend from the driving point of view, or at least it doesn't feel terrible, the result wasn't what we wanted but it is what it is.
29. 07. 2018 17:26
29. 07. 2018 16:26 CET
23 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): On speed it has been a good weekend. Just frustrated - another Friday with difficulties and then starting close to the front, sweeping the road.
29. 07. 2018 17:25
29. 07. 2018 16:25 CET
23 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We tried, a difficult weekend for us but we knew that coming here. We were nearly first on the road all weekend. Ogier was in a better position because he had team-mates who could help him move up a position.
29. 07. 2018 17:25
29. 07. 2018 16:25 CET
23 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I was not first on the road! That was a good thing. It was a difficult weekend for us, after Friday's mistake we were penalised with road order for the rest of the weekend. I expect we'll be back fighting again in Germany.
29. 07. 2018 17:00
29. 07. 2018 16:00 CET

30. 07. 2018 03:19
30. 07. 2018 02:19 CET
22 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Just going very steady. These stages are very smooth so there is not much of a risk of a puncture.
30. 07. 2018 03:19
30. 07. 2018 02:19 CET
22 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): That's incredible. I thought I did a good stage, so he did a better one. On the next stage the only thing I can do is not lose 2.5sec. We'll fight on.
30. 07. 2018 03:19
30. 07. 2018 02:19 CET
22 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It means we should catch him to 2.5sec! We had a very good run, some places were slippy but we got to sixth gear at a few points which we didn't do in the morning.
30. 07. 2018 03:19
30. 07. 2018 02:19 CET
22 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Really happy with how the weekend has gone. As a team we would have liked to have done better. But I feel I've been moving forward, bring on Turkey.
30. 07. 2018 03:18
30. 07. 2018 02:18 CET
22 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It is a good rally for me. Just need to have better pace here. Still one stage to go, let's see what is going to happen.
30. 07. 2018 03:18
30. 07. 2018 02:18 CET
22 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Easy answer is to try our best, it will be difficult to take the maximum but we try to take as much as we can.
30. 07. 2018 03:18
30. 07. 2018 02:18 CET
22 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It definitely went in the right direction, looking forward to another run of Ruuhimäki now and seeing what we can do.
30. 07. 2018 03:18
30. 07. 2018 02:18 CET
22 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We will see what strategy M-Sport is playing and what problem Suninen is going to have. We'll push as hard as possible.
30. 07. 2018 03:16
30. 07. 2018 02:16 CET
22 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Second pass is always a lot better grip, but still there is also cleaning. I try to drive and not take a huge risk because if I try to push like the way it is then it is not in control.
30. 07. 2018 03:22

21 retired (102 - Kaisanlahti Raimo / Sparre Aki): retired after SS 21

30. 07. 2018 02:16 CET
21 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): I'm trying to get my confidence back after yesterday. It is disappointing because I want to go more, but I'm not ready for it.
30. 07. 2018 03:16
30. 07. 2018 02:16 CET
21 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Very steady and just on the road. That's how it is.
30. 07. 2018 03:15
30. 07. 2018 02:15 CET
21 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): That's all good! It is going to end in my favour! I had some bad pacenotes in this stage, I changed them now. I focused on this stage yesterday evening and made some corrections which were all wrong which annoyed me. They've been changed.
30. 07. 2018 03:15
30. 07. 2018 02:15 CET
21 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is a big, big fight. I just maybe backed off a bit after I saw Lappi off on the last stage, Mads was still going quick so I knew I had to give more on this one.
30. 07. 2018 03:15
30. 07. 2018 02:15 CET
21 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Take it nice and easy now, I've got a good gap.
30. 07. 2018 03:15
30. 07. 2018 02:15 CET
21 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Let's see. I'll do the best thing for the team.
30. 07. 2018 03:14
30. 07. 2018 02:14 CET
21 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Of course we have to try to get maximum bonus points. This wasn't a push it was just to validate the pacenotes, we'll be pushing on the Power Stage though.
30. 07. 2018 03:14
30. 07. 2018 02:14 CET
21 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It is a pretty incredible section especially over the jumps, in these cars it is pretty fun.
30. 07. 2018 03:13
30. 07. 2018 02:13 CET
21 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): The last part of the stage is great, I struggled in the first part of the stage but I enjoyed the second half.
30. 07. 2018 03:13
30. 07. 2018 02:13 CET
21 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I don't know. I tried to do a good stage to see what is possible for the Power Stage. It is hard to push the car hard on this stage.
30. 07. 2018 03:12
30. 07. 2018 02:12 CET
21 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It will be a nice Power Stage to be fair. It is a nightmare to be first on the road in these stages. It is oversteering and understeering.
30. 07. 2018 03:14
30. 07. 2018 02:14 CET
20 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I went wide in a really fast place and the rear caught a tree stump and then we hit some rocks with the front and then spun 360 on the road and the car is too damaged to continue. I was expecting it to turn a bit less but I think the pace note was correct I just tried to be ‘on it’. I was not expecting to finish like this.
30. 07. 2018 03:12
30. 07. 2018 02:12 CET
20 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Seriously sad to see Lappi off, never expected anything like this. Stage is so slippery. Not nice for him.
30. 07. 2018 03:11
30. 07. 2018 02:11 CET
20 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It felt quite good, quite good rhythm so I'm glad to see we have taken some time. Jari-Matti is a great driver but we need to make sure to give our all.
30. 07. 2018 03:11
30. 07. 2018 02:11 CET
20 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Warning was very clear, thanks to the team and the organisers were doing a good job as well.
30. 07. 2018 02:58
30. 07. 2018 01:58 CET
20 retired (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): accident in SS 20
30. 07. 2018 02:57
30. 07. 2018 01:57 CET
20 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): We've just got to look after the position behind. We'll keep the pressure on Lappi, but we're just focused on a clean run.
30. 07. 2018 02:56
30. 07. 2018 01:56 CET
20 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Let's see what we can do.
30. 07. 2018 02:56
30. 07. 2018 01:56 CET
20 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Feeling has not been fantastic, just going for maximum push on the Power Stage.
30. 07. 2018 02:56
30. 07. 2018 01:56 CET
20 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): All clean, no problems. At points maybe we could have taken a few more risks if we were in a proper battle. Not the weekend everybody wanted, but we're still here.
30. 07. 2018 02:56
30. 07. 2018 01:56 CET
20 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Just try to enjoy it best we can. Notes were a bit cautious in places so we were a bit slow.
30. 07. 2018 02:54
30. 07. 2018 01:54 CET
20 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The road is very slippy, in this condition you can really feel it. We have a lot of work to do.

28. 07. 2018 20:48 CET
19 flash info (41 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I just hope we didn't disrupt the cars behind, we asked for extra time but hopefully it didn't affect them.
28. 07. 2018 21:47
28. 07. 2018 20:47 CET
19 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Obviously we managed to improve it (power steering issues), it was pretty much driveable. It has been really tough to drive as conditions have been rough and in this situation you see every rock on the road.
28. 07. 2018 21:46
28. 07. 2018 20:46 CET
19 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I was driving slow on this one, to be honest I was surprised with our tyre wear for this weekend.
28. 07. 2018 21:46
28. 07. 2018 20:46 CET
19 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): We had a problem with a tyre on the last one.
28. 07. 2018 21:45
28. 07. 2018 20:45 CET
19 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I was taking it a bit careful in a few places, I think there are guys who have less tyres left so let's have a look at their times.
28. 07. 2018 21:44
28. 07. 2018 20:44 CET
19 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think we struggle a bit all weekend. I think it was more of a big test for us. We change things all the time. We only had one day of testing with this aero evolution. The set-up changes during the day maybe aren't going in the right direction.
28. 07. 2018 21:43
28. 07. 2018 20:43 CET
19 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I didn't feel completely right, ...
28. 07. 2018 21:43
28. 07. 2018 20:43 CET
19 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It was a quite risky game, I finished the tyres and then this one was very slippy and Hayden (Paddon) has tyres left. I think we will lose some time on this one, but hopefully we gained enough on the last.
28. 07. 2018 21:42
28. 07. 2018 20:42 CET
19 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): In these conditions I can't do more than that. I can't take risks.
28. 07. 2018 21:40
28. 07. 2018 20:40 CET
19 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I suddenly lost the rear, I tried to put my foot on the accelerator to save it but then had to brake for the next corner!

30. 07. 2018 01:50 CET
18 flash info (41 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I have to say I have no idea. On brakign on the ruts. Something broke and then we lost everything from there. I dont' know what happened, I hit something on the ruts I'm so sorry. I don't think I'll make it through the next stage.
30. 07. 2018 02:50
30. 07. 2018 01:50 CET
18 (41 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): damaged damper

30. 07. 2018 02:48
30. 07. 2018 01:48 CET
18 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was ok. To be honest I don't know how Latvala did that with only one spare. I have two spares, I feel the weight all the time. I thought that would have helped me but there are only 15km left.
30. 07. 2018 02:48
30. 07. 2018 01:48 CET
18 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Yeah it was a bit difficult with these tyres. The fight is going on and I try to push. The time is good compared to the others except Esapekka. I was pushing as hard as I can with these tyres, I'll be okay for the next stage.
30. 07. 2018 02:48
30. 07. 2018 01:48 CET
18 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Our tyres are really bad after the last one so we took the call to take it easy on this one. Looking at the times Lappi must have taken a lot out of his tyres as well, so we should be better for the next one.
30. 07. 2018 02:47
30. 07. 2018 01:47 CET
18 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It is difficult to beat them but. The stage was okay, I was struggling a bit with the grip, it was quite sandy at the end and I couldn't get the grip.
30. 07. 2018 02:47
30. 07. 2018 01:47 CET
18 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We hit a really bad hole in a really fast place, it shoved us wide and it gave us a bit of an imbalance. I think we should make it through the last stage but we'll have to check the car before the next one.
30. 07. 2018 02:47
30. 07. 2018 01:47 CET
18 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I struggled a little bit with the front of the car, struggled with confidence with the front as the stage went on, especially with the ruts. I made a little change thinking it would help me before the stage but I don't think it did.
30. 07. 2018 02:46
30. 07. 2018 01:46 CET
18 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The rears are going off, it is a little bit too hot for those tyres and they're starting to slide a bit. Small problem with the brakes at one point in the stage. I had to slow down a bit.
30. 07. 2018 02:46
30. 07. 2018 01:46 CET
18 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We had a moment on a right-hand over crest a little bit, the rear tyres are starting to move a little bit. If I try to push harder I go out into the loose. It isn't easy.
28. 07. 2018 21:38
28. 07. 2018 20:38 CET
18 flash info (41 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I have to say I have no idea. On brakign on the ruts. Something broke and then we lost everything from there. I dont' know what happened, I hit something on the ruts I'm so sorry. I don't think I'll make it through the next stage.

28. 07. 2018 20:37 CET
18 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I've been very careful now, just being precise.
28. 07. 2018 21:37
28. 07. 2018 20:37 CET
18 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I'm not pushing. Just holding station until the end of the day.
28. 07. 2018 21:37
28. 07. 2018 20:37 CET
18 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Tyres are quite finished, I pushed pretty hard.

30. 07. 2018 01:43 CET
17 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): A lot. It makes the car quite difficult to drive, fighting for the stages now rather than just driving. I don't know what to do exactly.
30. 07. 2018 02:42
30. 07. 2018 01:42 CET
17 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I was maybe a bit cautious with the stones, otherwise we had a good run. There were quite a lot of triangles from national cars that had gone off so maybe I was a bit cautious yeah.
30. 07. 2018 02:42
30. 07. 2018 01:42 CET
17 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Got to be really, really smooth, I can do it really easy with the car now. It's a great stage, from the start you've got a smile on your face - that's what Finland is all about.
30. 07. 2018 02:41
30. 07. 2018 01:41 CET
17 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I don't think so, otherwise it wouldn't make sense to do what we did yesterday. But for now we're just enjoying ourselves.
30. 07. 2018 02:41
30. 07. 2018 01:41 CET
17 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): A few corners went really perfectly, okay there is not much space to make a mistake but it was a nice run. There are so many people stood at Kakaristo Junction I can't believe it.
30. 07. 2018 02:41
30. 07. 2018 01:41 CET
17 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Little bit too low in some places, it was quite a clean stage. Would have liked to have had just the one spare to see what we could do.
30. 07. 2018 02:41
30. 07. 2018 01:41 CET
17 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Conditions are completely different now, much more enjoyable.
30. 07. 2018 02:41
30. 07. 2018 01:41 CET
17 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We try to test some different things and the feeling is better. Okay it is really hard to compare because the grip is night and day. But this setup allows me to be a lot more direct.
28. 07. 2018 21:35
28. 07. 2018 20:35 CET
17 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Some issue with the power steering but okay I think it is driveable.
28. 07. 2018 21:34
28. 07. 2018 20:34 CET
17 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Ok, but I think the cars behind us are still coming faster.
28. 07. 2018 21:34
28. 07. 2018 20:34 CET
17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): The feeling is ok like always you watch the times of other people and you just think what can you do.

16 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It feels ok, a little bit tricky on this stage. We'll make some changes and they should work on the longer stages.

30. 07. 2018 01:22 CET
16 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Very small adjustments to be honest, not too much but all OK. I just have to keep going, let's see what happens.
30. 07. 2018 02:22
30. 07. 2018 01:22 CET
16 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I really hope the battle is with Paddon because the cars behind I don't need to focus on, quite a clean stage. I could have gone faster but then the risk is quite high.
30. 07. 2018 02:22
30. 07. 2018 01:22 CET
16 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Good, but quite a big jump. First time I was too hestiant but this time I went for it, and got a bump on the skull when I came down.
30. 07. 2018 02:22
30. 07. 2018 01:22 CET
16 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): When it is good like now on the second pass it is a lot better. Plan is to keep it on the road and watch what happens in front of me.
30. 07. 2018 02:21
30. 07. 2018 01:21 CET
16 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It is much better now, much more enjoyable but there is still cleaning on the second pass. We had more grip than the first pass though. We made some changes in service, still quite good, I think it's in the right direction.
28. 07. 2018 21:33
28. 07. 2018 20:33 CET
16 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Conditions are much more rough now, I had to avoid a lot of stones, I had to be careful. I am having to back off a bit to avoid the stones.
28. 07. 2018 21:32
28. 07. 2018 20:32 CET
16 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Don't think I can catch Mads with normal driving.
28. 07. 2018 21:32
28. 07. 2018 20:32 CET
16 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): The brakes are working perfectly which helps with the confidence. Just looking after the tyres.
28. 07. 2018 21:31
28. 07. 2018 20:31 CET
16 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): We made small changes for this one, it felt ok. Let's see how it will be for the next stages.
28. 07. 2018 21:30
28. 07. 2018 20:30 CET
16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Another set-up, we keep working. It is a short stage but first impressions seem ok.

30. 07. 2018 01:18 CET
15 flash info (41 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): The last junction we had a big drift and lost a few seconds, but we have a big gap and we didn't spin.
30. 07. 2018 02:17
30. 07. 2018 01:17 CET
15 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I'm driving my own rhythm, I actually quite enjoy a clean stage.
30. 07. 2018 02:17
30. 07. 2018 01:17 CET
15 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I had one small mistake in my notes from recce so I missed one second. Seem to have gap to Latvala under control and Ott seems to have things under control as well.
30. 07. 2018 02:16
30. 07. 2018 01:16 CET
15 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I have a feeling that might last! It's been a really, really good feeling but there is not much more I can do, Ott is in his own class.
30. 07. 2018 02:16
30. 07. 2018 01:16 CET
15 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Different stage, the surface is quite different here. Just had a small problem that disturbed me quite a bit but we didn't lose too much time.
30. 07. 2018 02:16
30. 07. 2018 01:16 CET
15 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): At least if you look at the timing board it doesn't look like it.
30. 07. 2018 02:15
30. 07. 2018 01:15 CET
15 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): My pacenotes were not precise enough so I was braking many times too early.
30. 07. 2018 02:15
30. 07. 2018 01:15 CET
15 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The oversteer seems to be more of an issue when it is very loose. Everything is generally okay. We'll have to sit down with the engineers to discuss changes.
30. 07. 2018 02:15
30. 07. 2018 01:15 CET
15 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): We did this stage in '16 in the old car flying high over the jumps but not so much in this car which is OK.
30. 07. 2018 01:45
30. 07. 2018 00:45 CET
15 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We knew that at some point being first one on the road was going to be a disadvantage, we'll be happy as long as Ogier doesn't take too many points.
30. 07. 2018 01:44
30. 07. 2018 00:44 CET
15 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It felt better in here with the adjustments we did. There's not a lot of grip. I could go with the same tyres this afternoon I think.

30. 07. 2018 01:22
30. 07. 2018 00:22 CET
14 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): We try to give it a go, some mistakes quite early in the stage but the end was quite nice for me.

30. 07. 2018 00:21 CET
14 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Very nice to drive, really enjoyed it. The beginning of the stage was pretty slippy.
30. 07. 2018 01:21
30. 07. 2018 00:21 CET
14 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Very, very loose in there, hard to keep the car straight. Focus is on keeping the Fords behind us.
30. 07. 2018 01:20
30. 07. 2018 00:20 CET
14 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Still the same things, just need to go flat out. Need to go as fast as I can. We need to push but not taking stupid risks.
30. 07. 2018 01:20
30. 07. 2018 00:20 CET
14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): A little bit better this one, I'm changing setup every single stage. Struggling a bit with the new aero on the rear.
30. 07. 2018 01:19
30. 07. 2018 00:19 CET
14 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): To be honest it was a really nice stage. The big road at the end is quite crazy.
30. 07. 2018 01:19
30. 07. 2018 00:19 CET
14 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): A couple of stupid moments in places, I think the rear tyres are dead now. Lost a bit of confidence towards the end.
30. 07. 2018 01:18
30. 07. 2018 00:18 CET
14 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Every car is going faster but I'm pleased to not be the first on the road any more.

30. 07. 2018 01:11
30. 07. 2018 00:11 CET
13 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I would say it is a bit more loose in here. We had a pretty big moment at the start so I was pretty lucky to get away with that one.
30. 07. 2018 01:10
30. 07. 2018 00:10 CET
13 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I made a mistake in the beginning so I maybe lost two seconds. I'm enjoying it, it's really nice. Nice feeling with the car and we try to do our best, but if you push too hard you risk making a mistake.
30. 07. 2018 01:10
30. 07. 2018 00:10 CET
13 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It is a pity because I have a nice feeling with the car and I'm really enjoying it. We'll keep pushing.
30. 07. 2018 01:10
30. 07. 2018 00:10 CET
13 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The grip isn't really better. When you go at that speed and it is that loose you can't take any risks. Now there are some lines so I can push a bit harder. It is more enjoyable than yesterday.
30. 07. 2018 01:10
30. 07. 2018 00:10 CET
13 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It is very tricky to drive, it feels like the car is floating on the road, not biting into it. We try to raise the attack a little bit on this one, the car feels better than yesterday.
28. 07. 2018 12:23
28. 07. 2018 11:23 CET
13 flash info (41 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): This one I didn't feel so good, it was not a good stage for me, I didn't like it. We'll have to see how the others are doing...
28. 07. 2018 12:23
28. 07. 2018 11:23 CET
13 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Looks like it, it is definitely not as hard a push as yesterday but on this one the rhythm is better.
28. 07. 2018 12:22
28. 07. 2018 11:22 CET
13 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): We are just driving slowly this morning to see the speed of the others! We're not willing to do anything stupid,...

28. 07. 2018 11:19 CET

28. 07. 2018 11:18 CET

11 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I will have a better start position. Today we try as hard as we can, but this year's Finland was the driest I've ever seen. My hat goes off to Tänak, there was no way we could compete with him, he did a great job.

28. 07. 2018 12:13
28. 07. 2018 11:13 CET
11 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Same thing as Khalid, a fuel valve issue, it started alright but then it shut down later into the stage. Definitely had enough fuel, it was the opposite...too much fuel.

29. 07. 2018 22:50
29. 07. 2018 21:50 CET
10 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): The afternoon has not really been good. The first two stages were very nice but after that the tyre wear was big. I've had to save the tyres since Urria. We are not losing a lot of time which is good because the end it was all about getting through the afternoon for us.
29. 07. 2018 22:50
29. 07. 2018 21:50 CET
10 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Losing the brakes at the end of the stage, had a lot of travel on the pedal. A little strange to be honest. It's a pity we couldn't get up one or two more places on the road order.

29. 07. 2018 21:21 CET
9 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): The risk is quite high, we had some tyre wear and I could not push. I just had to go a decent speed and take no cuts. I'm not happy with my speed, again it's on purpose and I can't do anything else.

29. 07. 2018 21:21 CET
9 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It was a bit more rough in there, we went a bit softer on the car. Sometimes I lose grip completely when I'm in the lines. It is better when there are no lines.
29. 07. 2018 22:21
29. 07. 2018 21:21 CET
9 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's ok, Ott is going very, very fast at the moment. I tried to be a little bit more cautious here because of the rocks, I didn't want to get a puncture.
29. 07. 2018 22:21
29. 07. 2018 21:21 CET
9 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Everything is fine, it is pretty rough with many, many rocks. One was on braking and it caught the front-right, hopefully it didn't give us a slow puncture.
29. 07. 2018 22:20
29. 07. 2018 21:20 CET
9 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Tomorrow is a fair fight, so then we will push hard. Today was very important to get a good position for tomorrow. It was very rough. I believe road position will make a big difference, he's quite a bit down the order.
29. 07. 2018 22:20
29. 07. 2018 21:20 CET
9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Really rutted, I didn't expect that at the beginning of the stage, which was smooth. There is too much gap to get past Elfyn so unless he makes a mistake I can't imagine we'll get past him.
29. 07. 2018 22:20
29. 07. 2018 21:20 CET
9 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I can't be happy about the position, but we knew from the beginning it was going to be tough. Being first on the road has been a disaster but I can't do more than that.

29. 07. 2018 21:54
29. 07. 2018 20:54 CET
8 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It was quite rutted and maybe I was too low, I was touching quite a lot. We need to do something.
29. 07. 2018 21:54
29. 07. 2018 20:54 CET
8 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I had to back off on the rough sections, if you're driving for nothing you can just take the rocks but I knew Ott wasn't as fast through there and I was backing off on purpose.
29. 07. 2018 21:54
29. 07. 2018 20:54 CET
8 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It seems Esapekka has a good run, it would be good if we could keep up this pace.
29. 07. 2018 21:53
29. 07. 2018 20:53 CET
8 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The last stage as well we lost a bit to Esapekka. Can't put my finger on why we're losing time, but maybe we need to put another notch on it.
29. 07. 2018 21:53
29. 07. 2018 20:53 CET
8 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Better and better. It's really, as I said on the previous stage, now everything is working and I can trust the car.

8 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The situation is not so bad actually because Ogier is only two positions ahead of us. We have to do our best and keep the car on the road.

29. 07. 2018 20:15 CET
7 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I don't know, I think that was quite a clean run for me but it looks like we are using a few seconds.
29. 07. 2018 21:14
29. 07. 2018 20:14 CET
7 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I saw I was leading with 0.1 before the stage, so I though here on I'd just play it safe! You can see I'm sweating, you can tell how hard I'm pushing.
29. 07. 2018 21:14
29. 07. 2018 20:14 CET
7 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Yeah it is unfortunate with the puncture, I didn't get a quick run through this stage this morning so I was a bit hesitant at points on this run.
29. 07. 2018 21:14
29. 07. 2018 20:14 CET
7 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I think we made some progress there. It was better now, the car was more predictable.
29. 07. 2018 21:14
29. 07. 2018 20:14 CET
7 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I try, but I don't know! I can't do any more, that is the speed I do now, let's see what happens. A couple of ruts on the stage but not too bad.
29. 07. 2018 21:13
29. 07. 2018 20:13 CET
7 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The Toyota guys are very fast. For us, we had a lot of occassions where the car was jumping out of the ruts.
29. 07. 2018 21:13
29. 07. 2018 20:13 CET
7 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It is much better than in the morning for sure.

29. 07. 2018 20:13 CET
7 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I have to say, this afternoon the feeling has not been good. I've not been happy with the handling. I don't know what's changed since this morning.
29. 07. 2018 21:12
29. 07. 2018 20:12 CET

6 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): A long way to go, really tricky stage this one. The hanging dust was incredible. I was probably a bit too hesitant in the dust.
29. 07. 2018 20:57
29. 07. 2018 19:57 CET
6 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It felt pretty okay, but there was a lot of dust. When we are driving fast and we don't see it is quite dangerous. I think it would be good to get some pretty small rain.
29. 07. 2018 20:57
29. 07. 2018 19:57 CET
6 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Really tricky stage, the dust was incredible. I did take some risk in the dust because I know what Ott is willing to do and I must do the same. I really enjoy the car and I enjoy to work with Citroën, I just enjoy my time for sure.
29. 07. 2018 20:57
29. 07. 2018 19:57 CET
6 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Yeah clean run, we were way too low, we were crashing out a bit at the start of the stage. The dust caught me a lot of times, but it's good fun and I'm enjoying it. We just have to keep pushing.
29. 07. 2018 20:57
29. 07. 2018 19:57 CET
6 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): The car is back to normal. But struggling to get any feeling at all. No confidence, always questioning the amount of grip.
29. 07. 2018 20:57
29. 07. 2018 19:57 CET
6 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The time is not as good as I hoped. I thought it was good because I had a good feeling. We had some dust in places. But an incredible drive from Ott.
29. 07. 2018 20:56
29. 07. 2018 19:56 CET
6 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Just a few splashes of rain, more annoying than anything else. All new notes for this one.
29. 07. 2018 20:56
29. 07. 2018 19:56 CET
6 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Yeah, it took a while from the beginning to get into the rhythm with the car. Now I can trust the car. Much better feeling now definitely.
29. 07. 2018 20:56
29. 07. 2018 19:56 CET
6 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I don't know, Martin said it was good but for me it was quite rubbish. At the start it was very loose. I tried my best, it seems like it might rain soon. I didn't feel good.
29. 07. 2018 20:55
29. 07. 2018 19:55 CET
6 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I try, but it is not working. A lot of loose, especially in the first pass being first on the road. Towards the end it felt like I was at the maximum. The rain wouldn't change anything.

29. 07. 2018 20:48
29. 07. 2018 19:48 CET
5 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I went wide a bit. I had a long crest and I didn't expect the car to be that light on the brakes.
29. 07. 2018 20:47
29. 07. 2018 19:47 CET
5 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Very slippery, I didn't have an easy stage for sure. I tried to push but I made a few mistakes because I was trying to push a bit too hard.
29. 07. 2018 20:47
29. 07. 2018 19:47 CET
5 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Yeah I just made one little mistake, little bit distracted. I knew it was a corner someone else had gone off on, but apart from that it was clean.

29. 07. 2018 19:47 CET
5 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was ok, little bit disappointed. It was slippier than I thought and I didn't have the best confidence on this one. The fight is on with Ott.
29. 07. 2018 20:46
29. 07. 2018 19:46 CET
5 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Getting into a rhythm, I was a bit too committed in some places so I lost a bit of time, just need to be tidier next time. Overall, it has been OK.

29. 07. 2018 19:46 CET
5 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I really struggled to see with the broken windscreen. It is not so much you can do when it is like this. The bonnet is really raising while driving as well.
29. 07. 2018 20:46
29. 07. 2018 19:46 CET
5 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I will try, there is nothing else to do. For sure I will try this afternoon. I don't know what we will do with the car. I just can't match Ott, I almost rolled now, I don't have enough grip.
29. 07. 2018 20:46
29. 07. 2018 19:46 CET
5 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Yeah we had the maximum on every stage, obviously everyone was sleeping this morning! Now it is going in a logical way, we are topping everything. Tomorrow is the proper day for us.
29. 07. 2018 20:45
29. 07. 2018 19:45 CET
5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think I am happy, there are a few places I could have pushed harder and gained an extra few tenths. But the fight is with Thierry and that is what the focus is on.
29. 07. 2018 20:45
29. 07. 2018 19:45 CET
5 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I went off on this one, I made a mistake. It was a pace note that was too optimistic. I was thinking about changing it but I then didn't hear the next one.

29. 07. 2018 18:36 CET

29. 07. 2018 18:35 CET
4 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We try do the best, we need to fight with the cars starting further behind but this stage might be a bit less loose than the other ones.
29. 07. 2018 19:35
29. 07. 2018 18:35 CET
4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Yeah we do what we can but obviously it will be difficult to fight with the guy starting behind. Ott is starting third but he's setting some great times, especially on the first stage.
29. 07. 2018 19:35
29. 07. 2018 18:35 CET
4 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We are doing our best but the conditions are very loose and I can't do any more to be honest. The car is not behaving as it should. We focus on our main goal of keeping in touch with Seb and finishing ahead of him at the end of the weekend.

3 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): I think the stage is a bit better, quite tricky on the new sections as it is rutting up already. Certainly enjoyed that one more than the first one.
29. 07. 2018 19:31
29. 07. 2018 18:31 CET
3 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Yeah it was quite soft and quite rough, more than I expected but it is the same for everybody. It will be rougher on the second run but we'll set the car up for that.
29. 07. 2018 19:30
29. 07. 2018 18:30 CET
3 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Well there was quite rough sections, cars in front are cutting and I didn't want to risk going over the big rocks like the cars ahead. Wanted to avoid the punctures.

29. 07. 2018 18:30 CET

1 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's been a tough time for me for sure, so it would be good to change the course and get a good result. In this car I know we can get this stage done, it suited us quite well, there were a few small mistakes but it was generally good.

1 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): For this I have no clue, because it is not a stage that suits us really well but in shakedown the car was really strong and suits me really well.
