Information

Date and time SS Information
18. 02. 2018 15:50 CET 19 retired (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): retired after SS 19
18. 02. 2018 13:46 CET 19 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was a team strategy. From our place in the order we had no chance. We tried to play a bit and get an acceptable position. On the Power Stage I made a few mistakes, I wasn't used to so much grip, but finally we archived out objective and took some points.
18. 02. 2018 13:24 CET 19 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It's an incredible weekend. We didn't expect to be so fast over here year, but the team and the car gave us the chance to fight for victory. We deserved it last year, even more this year. There are more than 200 people in the team, they are committed and gave us everything. I'm really happy with the weekend and looking forward to the upcoming events.
18. 02. 2018 13:17 CET 19 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): starting after st.no.32
18. 02. 2018 13:13 CET 19 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I'm not going to cry this time. It's awesome, I'm absolutely on top of the world, a bit stepping stone this weekend. I have to thank every single person around me. It's been difficult this past year but the boys have made this thing work.
18. 02. 2018 13:08 CET 19 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): will start after WRC2 frontrunners
18. 02. 2018 13:08 CET 19 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Nice to end up in the podium - my first with Hyundai. A clean stage. You really have to risk everything to get the maximum points on the Power Stage. That's a fine line when you're in a podium position.
18. 02. 2018 13:07 CET 19 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Annoying. A small mistake, I just stalled it and it wouldn't restart. It is what it is. Plenty of positive to take away anyway. We're not in championship contention this year. We can be positive going forward.
18. 02. 2018 13:01 CET 19 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Good, but I almost went into a ditch near the end! One mistake otherwise a really good run. Can I beat Paddon here? I don't know. Here was really quick here on the first run. Either way I can be really happy with this rally.
18. 02. 2018 13:01 CET 19 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): An amazing weekend. So nice to be back at Citroen. I've really enjoyed it but I felt my lack of experience in this car. But to be here after just half a day testing, to be so competitive, and bring home points, makes me really pleased. I'm just crossing my fingers for the future. I want to do more rallies in this car.
18. 02. 2018 13:00 CET 19 (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): went into snow bank, stalled engine
18. 02. 2018 12:54 CET 19 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's been a tough one but we are here, we got the points - that's the most important thing.
18. 02. 2018 12:53 CET 19 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): arrived 25 min later to TC 19
18. 02. 2018 12:51 CET 19 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): We learned a lot, the positive thing is we are fastest Ford, but I'm not satisfied to finish eighth. Now we try and take these leanings into the rest of the year.
18. 02. 2018 12:45 CET 19 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I didn't see him before the stage. Maybe Seb is playing some games to get a better start position?
18. 02. 2018 12:40 CET 19 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): didn't start in his time slot
18. 02. 2018 12:39 CET 19 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We had a bit of a go here but it was very slippery at the start, a few little errors here and there.
18. 02. 2018 12:38 CET 19 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): I stalled the engine and couldn't get it restarted. I thought it was broken.
18. 02. 2018 12:30 CET 19 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It pushed all the loose snow into the ruts. If my time is within half a minute of the fastest time I'll be happy.
18. 02. 2018 12:29 CET 19 (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): stalled engine in hairpin
18. 02. 2018 12:14 CET 19 Starting order: 1. Meeke, 2. Solberg, 3. Evans, 4. Ogier, 5. Tänak, 6. Suninen, 7. Latvala, 8. Østberg, 9. Lappi, 10. Paddon, 11. Mikkelsen, 12. Breen, 13. Neuville
18. 02. 2018 14:41 CET 18 retired (21 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): retired after SS 18
18. 02. 2018 10:30 CET 18 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Absolutely no way for any chance on power stage. We're first on the road.
18. 02. 2018 10:29 CET 18 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I will not push for points in power stage. Definitely not. No, no, no. We have increased the gap now and can go carefully
18. 02. 2018 10:29 CET 18 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Sorry if you're fed up hearing this, but it's so much fun, it's just a pleasure. We've been fighting for a year to get back in this rhythm. One more stage to come, I could do another three or four days of this.
18. 02. 2018 10:24 CET 18 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I thought I had a puncture on the front left. The car wouldn't turn well to the right. It never got worse, so I drove normally again, but it cost us some time.
18. 02. 2018 10:22 CET 18 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): It felt better, a step in the right direction. We'll see. The Toyotas are fast on this stage. We have a little gap for the last stage, we'll certainly try to defend it.
18. 02. 2018 10:22 CET 18 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): The car is similar to earlier, not perfect but it feels better when the grip is increasing. That did help a little bit here. Not perfect but ok, I was pushing.
18. 02. 2018 10:19 CET 18 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Ok, more tricky conditions now, I just tried to be very clean. I thought I was careful, maybe too careful
18. 02. 2018 10:16 CET 18 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The feeling is there, I'm happy now. More difficult on the second pass than the first. When you break the ice, the snow on the side makes it more slippery.
18. 02. 2018 10:15 CET 18 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Better now, I was using the car more, getting used to the new setups. Small problems with the wipers, but ok.
18. 02. 2018 10:12 CET 18 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We will try on the Power Stage. We tried to be extremely careful here to keep a good set of tyres. Let's see what's possible.
18. 02. 2018 10:10 CET 18 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We hope the conditions on the Power Stage will be ok. That is the only target for us now.
18. 02. 2018 10:08 CET 18 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It will be very difficult to salvage any points from the Power Stage in this road position. We'll try. Never say never.
18. 02. 2018 10:08 CET 18 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): Lots of things in the road. A lot slower than before, but that's how it is being first on the road.
18. 02. 2018 08:40 CET 17 (36 - Arai Hiroki / MacNeall Glenn): spun
18. 02. 2018 08:30 CET 17 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I spun. Caught the inside of a snow bank and went round. I had to drive back up the road before I could turn around, there were no room.
18. 02. 2018 08:28 CET 17 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I was quite careful in this one. We confirmed the pacenotes for the second pass. Should be fine.
18. 02. 2018 08:24 CET 17 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): A nice rhythm. Pace notes a bit slow in places. A few changes to make before the second run.
18. 02. 2018 08:22 CET 17 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A clean run, one small mistake but an ok run. A few setup changes and the car feels good.
18. 02. 2018 08:21 CET 17 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): I wanted to push, and I tried, but I don't have the rhythm. I can't get the car to do what I want. Difficult.
18. 02. 2018 08:21 CET 17 (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): spun
18. 02. 2018 08:20 CET 17 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Not good. We did a small mistake and we ended up being similar to yesterday morning. A misunderstanding with the team. A shame. I struggled to drive the car.
18. 02. 2018 08:17 CET 17 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): For me not good enough. I don't know this stage and in many places I was in the wrong gear. I was so fed up. I will push harder next time.
18. 02. 2018 08:16 CET 17 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The team has done a very good job the car, it's handling very well now. There was a problem with the front differential. Everything is right now but I was hesitating a bit.
18. 02. 2018 08:14 CET 17 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Happy with the car, some improvement to the setup. More grip than I expected.
18. 02. 2018 08:10 CET 17 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Not so bad, the grip is quite consistent.
18. 02. 2018 08:09 CET 17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I need to look after my tyres for the Power Stage, but with the amount of snow around they should be ok.
18. 02. 2018 08:07 CET 17 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): A clean enough run but vision is a problem here as it gets light. Not dark enough for the lights, not easy to read the road.
18. 02. 2018 08:05 CET 17 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): Not easy but I try my best. Fantastic conditions out here now.
17. 02. 2018 21:31 CET 16 retired (95 - Wieromiejczyk Michał / Wróbel Jakub): accident in SS 16
17. 02. 2018 20:01 CET 16 flash info (32 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): We should be happy with the day, okay, struggling a bit on the second loop but finishing well here. All going according to the plan.
17. 02. 2018 20:01 CET 16 flash info (31 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): I will try my best in this situation. We will see.
17. 02. 2018 20:00 CET 16 flash info (35 - Katsuta Takamoto / Salminen Marko): These last two stages were slippery and tricky but I enjoyed this one, perhaps too much, I was a little too aggressive. Still three more stages to go tomorrow. I will keep good concentration and keep pushing.
17. 02. 2018 20:00 CET 16 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It's already better than last year! A really lovely day for us. The car was working great, okay a small issue today that we could fix, other than that a good job. Good tyre management I think, I'm really pleased and big thanks to the team.
17. 02. 2018 20:00 CET 16 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It's already better than last year! A really lovely day for us. The car was working great, okay a small issue today that we could fix, other than that a good job. Good tyre management I think, I'm really pleased and big thanks to the team.
17. 02. 2018 19:59 CET 16 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A clean stage again, we had to wake up after the long road section. We paid a high price for our mistakes today.
17. 02. 2018 19:59 CET 16 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): We got half stuck in a snow bank near the start. The car over rotated on a hairpin. We hoped for more from today.
17. 02. 2018 19:47 CET 16 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Difficult to keep the car in the line. Not the best end to the day but we have to be happy with our speed.
17. 02. 2018 19:45 CET 16 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I forgot to shut my door in the stage and in the first corner it flew open! I'm lacking experience in this car. My setup from the test is the one I'm using - it's the one I know best.
17. 02. 2018 19:44 CET 16 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I was a bit careful in here - a lot of ruts under braking.
17. 02. 2018 19:40 CET 16 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It's been a steady performance through the rally. I'm very satisfied if we can do top five times almost all the time. A good fight for tomorrow too.
17. 02. 2018 19:40 CET 16 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The morning was quite ok but I'm struggling with the car when there are ruts. Something is wrong with the front diff. We will change the transmission tonight.
17. 02. 2018 19:40 CET 16 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The first part of the day was nice, second half not so nice. A tough rally. From our position in the road order tomorrow we will have no chance on the Power Stage.
17. 02. 2018 19:39 CET 16 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Very few positives to take from today.
17. 02. 2018 19:39 CET 16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I'm happy with my drive today. I've done what I could. Not much to catch today so I did a clean day with no mistakes - that's the only positive. The Power Stage is all I'm thinking about now.
17. 02. 2018 19:39 CET 16 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): It's been an ok day. Difficult to be at the front. I am old, but I learned a lot. Tomorrow? Flat out.
17. 02. 2018 18:20 CET 15 flash info (31 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): A good stage but to try and catch the guys on the Pirelli tyres here is not easy - I do my best.
17. 02. 2018 18:20 CET 15 flash info (35 - Katsuta Takamoto / Salminen Marko): Now we are leading but tomorrow we have long stages and the rally is not over yet. A great day today, no issues. We need to continue like this.
17. 02. 2018 18:19 CET 15 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Maybe too much time to catch but for sure it's possible. Let's take another look after the next stage.
17. 02. 2018 18:19 CET 15 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We have quite a good lead now. A bit steady in here, I remember what happened here last year and it wasn't going to happen again.
17. 02. 2018 18:09 CET 15 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): We still have one more stage to go today, but for now I think we made the right choice with just one spare tyre. Today has been really nice and enjoyable. It would be nice for this to become normal.
17. 02. 2018 18:08 CET 15 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): We were hoping for a bit more today, but this is all we can do for the moment.
17. 02. 2018 18:08 CET 15 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It was not my favourite one. Not the best confidence. We need to improve tomorrow.
17. 02. 2018 18:08 CET 15 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Not so bad. This stage is mainly about not wasting time. A decent run, quite enjoyable.
17. 02. 2018 18:07 CET 15 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It's been a quite good day. Quite a stable performance.
17. 02. 2018 18:07 CET 15 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The car is okay when the line is wider but in the ruts the car is horrible. We will change the differential tonight, we have to do it.
17. 02. 2018 17:55 CET 15 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The surface is really slushy - no problem.
17. 02. 2018 17:55 CET 15 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Very different from Thursday, big ruts and slippery. Just a small stage.
17. 02. 2018 17:49 CET 15 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Our tyres were ok, but there has been snow in here since Thursday, so a bit more loose. We are used to it now.
17. 02. 2018 15:57 CET 14 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): touched the bank a bit over Colin's Crest. Last year I took it easy and went out. Now are in a fight so I'm pushing.
17. 02. 2018 15:57 CET 14 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I just tried to keep it clean. A very good run for me. I'm happy with that.
17. 02. 2018 15:48 CET 14 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Surprisingly slippery. Great to see a lot of fans out here enjoying it. It's fun to fight in these conditions.
17. 02. 2018 15:45 CET 14 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): More snow in there. With just one spare I think we made the right tyre choice for the loop. Two icy stages to come but I'm reasonably happy.
17. 02. 2018 15:44 CET 14 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was a nice feeling for sure. When I'm more confident the jump is less important. A good stage. I'm back to basics now with the set-up and I'll probably keep it like this until the end.
17. 02. 2018 15:40 CET 14 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Difficult stage. Just need to improve and do a better job.
17. 02. 2018 15:40 CET 14 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): If I can catch Ostberg for sure I will try, but it's so equal. It's not easy to make big differences.
17. 02. 2018 15:40 CET 14 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): This car is not ok, there is something strange with the transmission system. It's oversteering and understeering, the engine almost stalls on the gear-change too. We have to see what the problem is. For tomorrow I will change the differential. It has been horrible to drive.
17. 02. 2018 15:40 CET 14 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): How disappointed am I? I'm really happy.
17. 02. 2018 15:29 CET 14 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): A fair few studs missing from our tyres now. We'll asses the situation now but maybe two spare tyres could have been a better choice.
17. 02. 2018 15:29 CET 14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Maybe the jump was the only fun part of the stage. At least we enjoy on the first loop. Now, not much we can do.
17. 02. 2018 15:29 CET 14 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): That was a bad stage. Lots of snow and I had problems with the brakes from the start.
17. 02. 2018 16:39 CET 13 (96 - Ryrlèn Heidi / Bengtsson Marcus): was out of road
17. 02. 2018 16:02 CET 13 retired (41 - Åhlin Fredrik / Sjöberg Joakim): radiator after SS 13
17. 02. 2018 15:04 CET 13 (36 - Arai Hiroki / MacNeall Glenn): stopped in stage
17. 02. 2018 14:58 CET 13 retired (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): retired after SS 13
17. 02. 2018 14:52 CET 13 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had quite a big push in there, the car worked well. I kept the rhythm and it seems like it is working well.
17. 02. 2018 14:51 CET 13 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A clean stage no mistakes, happy with that.
17. 02. 2018 14:51 CET 13 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Not bad. A lot of gravel in the middle section. Can I get back on the podium? Anything can happen.
17. 02. 2018 14:51 CET 13 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): A lot of gravel in there. Just trying to manage the tyres and not load them so much. The most tricky stage of the rally so far.
17. 02. 2018 14:45 CET 13 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was a little bit better. I've changed back to my original setup.
17. 02. 2018 14:42 CET 13 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Shame for Tänak. Quite ok for us, but difficult to drive in the ruts.
17. 02. 2018 14:42 CET 13 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I nosed into a snow bank and when I got back out everything was ok. Then Ott tried to pass me, I was half in the ditch when he hit me and went off.
17. 02. 2018 14:39 CET 13 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Very difficult with a mix of snow and gravel. I did what I could. Passing Kris cost me only two or three seconds.
17. 02. 2018 14:38 CET 13 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I caught Kris, tried to get past in a narrow place and he pulled back and hit us off the road.
17. 02. 2018 14:34 CET 13 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We had a pretty big spin in there, not ideal. The car is working better now, giving me more confidence. Perhaps a bit too much.
17. 02. 2018 14:33 CET 13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Not so fun this time. Difficult conditions. The kind of stage where WRC 2 cars are going to be faster than us again.
17. 02. 2018 14:31 CET 13 (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): stopped in stage, continue
17. 02. 2018 14:30 CET 13 (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): went into snowbank, going slowly
17. 02. 2018 14:29 CET 13 (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): spun
17. 02. 2018 15:48 CET 12 retired (101 - Frisiero Giacomo / Agnese Giovanni): retired after SS 12
17. 02. 2018 15:00 CET 12 retired (40 - Abbring Kevin / Tsjoen Pieter): retired after SS 12
17. 02. 2018 13:57 CET 12 (40 - Abbring Kevin / Tsjoen Pieter): was out of road
17. 02. 2018 13:26 CET 12 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): An ok run. He has two spare tyres and we have only one. We knew we would lose some because of that but I will have fresh tyres for later in the loop.
17. 02. 2018 13:25 CET 12 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A nice fight. One mistake here but other than that a clean stage. The lines in the road from the car in front were crazy, he's pushing hard.
17. 02. 2018 13:17 CET 12 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Better, but it's more difficult today. The rear-wheel-drive cars have created ruts, and I can't place the car where I want to.
17. 02. 2018 13:17 CET 12 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): A little bit yee-haa! over the jump. So much fun.
17. 02. 2018 13:16 CET 12 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I have a lot of movement. I'm trying my best but I cannot find the right feeling. I don't know what thing to change. I'm looking for the right feeling, but I'm looking for a feeling I cannot find.
17. 02. 2018 13:16 CET 12 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Now it feels a bit better but the conditions are difficult, no ice for the rear tyres and we are sliding about. Can Kris catch me? Let's see.
17. 02. 2018 13:10 CET 12 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Good, good. A few mistakes, not crazy big ones, otherwise quite a clean stage.
17. 02. 2018 13:10 CET 12 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We had a very bad time. I don't know how Ott can be so quick. An incredible time. I can't stop him. He's doing really well.
17. 02. 2018 13:07 CET 12 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I'm trying, but the conditions seem to be the same as yesterday. It's very tough. We benefit from a few cars ahead but it's a big problem.
17. 02. 2018 13:07 CET 12 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Suninen is dropping back a bit, so maybe I have the opportunity to take a point here. The roads on this loops will clean a lot. I expect the guys behind will annihilate our times.
17. 02. 2018 13:07 CET 12 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The car setup is better but the conditions are still difficult. The road is improving with every car.
17. 02. 2018 13:06 CET 12 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We're going to lose a lot of time here. We had some fun this morning at least.
17. 02. 2018 13:06 CET 12 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): Not easy to drive first - I'm not in this position normally. Ogier told me "you'll see".
17. 02. 2018 10:41 CET 11 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): I felt we lost a lot in here. The car is set-up too aggressively for this stage. I like that set-up and it will be better for the afternoon loop. We have to be patient.
17. 02. 2018 10:41 CET 11 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It's been a good morning, I'm just trying to push on. We have a good pace, but I'm looking at the Toyotas coming behind me. For now I'm loving it - 200kph with my best mate by my side.
17. 02. 2018 10:37 CET 11 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): We hit the snow bank a bits, so not a great stage.
17. 02. 2018 10:32 CET 11 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It narrows more than two years ago. At least somebody had taken out the snow bank! A clean stage but teh time is not so good it seems.
17. 02. 2018 10:32 CET 11 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I did a big mistake in the first corner - I came far too fast. We used to do it in fifth gear, I did it by memory and went wide. I lost the speed and couldn't get it back.
17. 02. 2018 10:28 CET 11 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): A good stage, really slow and technical. It looks like every car is pulling snow onto the road, its slippery. For me not so bad.
17. 02. 2018 10:27 CET 11 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): A lot of snow banks in here, and it's easy to get caught. A reasonable stage for me, but for sure it will clean. I'm concentrating on the points, that's all I can do.
17. 02. 2018 10:24 CET 11 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Not the best stage for us. We need to keep hoping to find something. It didn't like a bad stage but the time is not good.
17. 02. 2018 10:23 CET 11 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I tried. I had fun in the car, it's a beautiful stage, very clean. I cannot do better with this start position. For sure others will be faster.
17. 02. 2018 12:11 CET 10 retired (39 - Shaymiev Radik / Tsvetkov Maxim): retired after SS 10
17. 02. 2018 09:54 CET 10 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The transmission is working, I fixed it, but I had a spin in the stage - a 360 degree. There was nothing I could do to avoid it, I'm pretty sure Andreas destroyed a snow bank in front of me.
17. 02. 2018 09:53 CET 10 (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): spun
17. 02. 2018 09:51 CET 10 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I had a spin, maybe lost 15 sec. I touched the bank a bit, I had to reverse. Not good.
17. 02. 2018 09:50 CET 10 (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): spun
17. 02. 2018 09:49 CET 10 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Struggling to find the line between underdriving and overdriving.
17. 02. 2018 09:46 CET 10 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Ok, difficult to judge what speed you're at in the car. We'll see how it is.
17. 02. 2018 09:45 CET 10 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Horrible. I struggled with the confidence and I don't know why. We have made some changes but there's nothing more I can do before service.
17. 02. 2018 09:43 CET 10 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): That was a bad stage for me - I spun.
17. 02. 2018 09:42 CET 10 (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): spun
17. 02. 2018 09:40 CET 10 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I'm just too careful. I'm trying to stay out of the banks and it seems it's not enough. I can see the cars ahead are using them. I'm not brave enough.
17. 02. 2018 09:38 CET 10 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Ott is going very, very fast at the moment. I'm running as hard as I can - I need to think about what I can do.
17. 02. 2018 09:36 CET 10 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Maybe not such good conditions as the previous on, but reasonably ok. Overall quite enjoyable today.
17. 02. 2018 09:34 CET 10 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Really nice. Conditions are much more consistent today. I just try to enjoy it, not much more for us to do.
17. 02. 2018 09:32 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was narrow, a bit more fresh snow, but okay. No problem for us.
17. 02. 2018 09:31 CET 10 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): It seems to be ok. Not easy to be first on the road, but if the car is okay, then I am flat out.
18. 02. 2018 21:04 CET 9 (95 - Wieromiejczyk Michał / Wróbel Jakub): was out of road
17. 02. 2018 10:05 CET 9 retired (38 - Scandola Umberto / Gaspari Andrea): radiator after SS 9
17. 02. 2018 09:26 CET 9 retired (91 - Vidal Amador / Camacho José): technical problem - differential in SS 9
17. 02. 2018 09:26 CET 9 retired (65 - Torn Ken / Sikk Kuldar): accident in SS 9
17. 02. 2018 08:45 CET 9 Car no. 65 is blocking the road.
17. 02. 2018 08:44 CET 9 (65 - Torn Ken / Sikk Kuldar): stopped in stage
17. 02. 2018 08:39 CET 9 retired (21 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): retired before SS 9
17. 02. 2018 08:30 CET 9 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was ok. We have to go now - no issue.
17. 02. 2018 08:30 CET 9 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A clean stage, no problems, just trying to get into a good rhythm. It's a long day, just need to drive and keep the concentration high.
17. 02. 2018 08:30 CET 9 (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): paddle shift not working
17. 02. 2018 08:28 CET 9 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Ok, fair play they've done a good stage. Maybe I was too cautious. Nothing to worry about, we can push on in the next one. Our set up works better on the repeated stages.
17. 02. 2018 08:26 CET 9 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): An really awesome feeling in the car, it's sticking! The notes are a little slow in places but we'll keep on throwing the kitchen sink at it.
17. 02. 2018 08:24 CET 9 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): A really fast stage but I didn't manage to get a good rhythm. The car felt good, it was more me. I'm a bit disappointed in myself.
17. 02. 2018 08:22 CET 9 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): We had some problems. Car problems? Ah. Maybe the driver.
17. 02. 2018 08:19 CET 9 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I think it was ok. I just try to keep it on the clean line where there is grip. Third fastest? That's not good enough. I don't want to push harder and hit the banks.
17. 02. 2018 08:18 CET 9 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Better rhythm than yesterday, there's lots of grip, a really enjoyable stage to drive.
17. 02. 2018 08:16 CET 9 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Conditions are lot better than yesterday, the road is cleaning really nicely, in a normal way, consistent grip.
17. 02. 2018 08:14 CET 9 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Only three cars to beat at the moment, but ok. Better conditions, a lot better than yesterday, more consistent grip. I don't feel I have the speed to challenge the leaders, my only aim is to take a point off Ogier.
17. 02. 2018 08:12 CET 9 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Better confidence for sure, different conditions to yesterday.
17. 02. 2018 08:12 CET 9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): There is not so much we can catch in a regular fight now. I enjoyed this stage though, I celebrated my win with the Polo here in 2013.
17. 02. 2018 08:11 CET 9 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): Yesterday we had some issues with engine.
16. 02. 2018 18:39 CET 8 retired (33 - Pieniążek Łukasz / Mazur Przemysław): accident in SS 8
16. 02. 2018 17:45 CET 8 flash info (36 - Arai Hiroki / MacNeall Glenn): The surface was polished and we went off close to the start. Today the throttle on my car has not been so happy, we stopped in Rojden twice. Quite a tough day for us but getting better and better.
16. 02. 2018 17:45 CET 8 flash info (35 - Katsuta Takamoto / Salminen Marko): Today was quite a good one. A few mistakes but otherwise it went well. Tomorrow I need to calm down and stay on the road. I have more to learn but I want a good result too.
16. 02. 2018 17:43 CET 8 (33 - Pieniążek Łukasz / Mazur Przemysław): stopped in stage
16. 02. 2018 17:41 CET 8 flash info (34 - Huttunen Jari / Linnaketo Antti): Quite nice, slippery and very funny to drive. My first time here and I need to learn.
16. 02. 2018 17:40 CET 8 flash info (32 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): Disappointing to lose time here, the stage was very messy, but overall pleased with the day.
16. 02. 2018 17:39 CET 8 flash info (31 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): It will be a good fight tomorrow. I was pushing in here. The fight is on. We continue like this.
16. 02. 2018 17:39 CET 8 flash info (21 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): A good day. A small problem maybe, we go to the service to see.
16. 02. 2018 17:39 CET 8 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): It's not been my best day but I'm happy. I am improving but I need to find out how much I can push this car.
16. 02. 2018 17:35 CET 8 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Wow. Lines on the road off in every direction, I don't understand how anyone got to the end of this one. Considering I've had just over half a day of testing in this car I am very pleased to be here on this pace.
16. 02. 2018 17:24 CET 8 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Not really good. We lost our light pod in here. Today would have been okay, but I was hoping for more. I need more kilometres to find a good rhythm.
16. 02. 2018 17:24 CET 8 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I followed some lines near the start, went into a bank and nearly fell off the road. A very tricky stage. Not a bad day. I can't wait to get my teeth into it again tomorrow.
16. 02. 2018 17:23 CET 8 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I'm pretty happy with the day. Clean driving and a good pace. Looks like we have a job on tomorrow, to fight for the win.
16. 02. 2018 17:18 CET 8 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Quite messy. Very messy. A lot of lose snow and the guys ahead have gone everywhere. I'm impressed they have not got stuck in the ditches. This is going to be an interesting Power Stage.
16. 02. 2018 17:16 CET 8 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Glad to get it over with. A tough day for sure. We need to have a rethink tonight and come out fighting tomorrow.
16. 02. 2018 17:16 CET 8 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I try to give my best, the car is working well. It's not easy, I'm fighting with the guys behind. I try to get the speed without taking risks.
16. 02. 2018 17:16 CET 8 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): These are not the conditions in which to build confidence. We're not too far behind the pace of Latvala, but I don't have the confidence to push hard.
16. 02. 2018 17:16 CET 8 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I was hoping to be stronger but there is no chance. Even here I tried but it was very messy.
16. 02. 2018 17:15 CET 8 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): A very difficult day, I'm not sure I've had anything like this for a long time. Looking at the times, I've had no ability to drive at all. It's not nice, but we need to accept it. There will be a next rally. The car is nice but the road position is not in our favour.
16. 02. 2018 17:06 CET 8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Not much I could do today, for sure.
16. 02. 2018 16:34 CET 7 flash info (21 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): A lot of rough in the last few kilometres. We enjoy but it's a difficult rally this year.
16. 02. 2018 16:33 CET 7 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): I enjoyed it. It's fast and good and there is a great atmosphere in the stages now. Neat and tidy.
16. 02. 2018 16:30 CET 7 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I need to make changes to the car to be competitive, it doesn't feel good and I need to take risks on my set-up. I made quite a big change and I could really feel it. I'm not sure if it was better or not.
16. 02. 2018 16:28 CET 7 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): The road position is helping us. It's always the same for me in Sweden, I struggle on the first pass on Friday and get better on the second. One stage to go and then a big push tomorrow.
16. 02. 2018 16:22 CET 7 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Not a clean run. I struggled a bit to get the same rhythm. Not too happy but I'm trying. It's pure class out on these stages.
16. 02. 2018 16:20 CET 7 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It was a clean stage. We have another notch to go if we need it.
16. 02. 2018 16:19 CET 7 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I think everything is fine. Just snow in the air filter.
16. 02. 2018 16:15 CET 7 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Difficult enough. So slippery off line. Trying to keep in the ruts.
16. 02. 2018 16:14 CET 7 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I'm fighting with the guys behind, trying to do the best in the conditions I have and fight for victory. It's tricky because sometimes I'm making a faster line to the benefit of the guys behind.
16. 02. 2018 16:14 CET 7 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): You just take the running order, reverse it and they're the times. That said, I don't have the pace of Thierry Neuville behind. I was cautious on the first stage, after that I've done what I could.
16. 02. 2018 16:13 CET 7 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): More difficult conditions than we have seen here for years.
16. 02. 2018 16:13 CET 7 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I need to say sorry to the organisers about what I said about the ploughing. We are sportsmen, trying to do our best, anyway, I'm sorry.
16. 02. 2018 16:04 CET 7 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Frustrated, doesnt want to comment.
16. 02. 2018 16:32 CET 6 (85 - Holmberg Johan / Bäck Christoffer): stopped in stage
16. 02. 2018 15:52 CET 6 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): It's ok, but the ruts are very big now. We try.
16. 02. 2018 15:52 CET 6 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I cannot find any confidence with the car. I'm fighting against it and cannot find a rhythm. Same as the stage before.
16. 02. 2018 15:51 CET 6 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Very pronounced ice ruts in the road, very hard to read. Compared to the previous stage I had to pull it back a little bit.
16. 02. 2018 15:51 CET 6 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Tricky, like Cool Runnings you just get in the ruts and go.
16. 02. 2018 15:51 CET 6 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I felt in the last 5km I had a puncture. The car felt really strange.
16. 02. 2018 15:50 CET 6 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): We went wide in a junction into the snow and blocked the air filter. No grip on the braking. That's it. The engine is down on power now.
16. 02. 2018 15:34 CET 6 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was going better but I spun and it spat us into a snow bank and I had to reverse.
16. 02. 2018 15:31 CET 6 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Another good lap, but we have to see the times of the guys behind. They're going to use my lines and go faster I think.
16. 02. 2018 15:28 CET 6 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Whoa. A couple of big, big moments. Not through trying too hard. Sometimes it sticks, sometimes it doesn't. Not easy.
16. 02. 2018 15:28 CET 6 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We are going to lose time now, it's incredible how much the road is cleaning and getting better. We will lose time, but it's like this. We do the best we can.
16. 02. 2018 15:28 CET 6 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Terrible. Nothing else to say. That's just how it is. Sometimes we have some hard days.
16. 02. 2018 15:24 CET 6 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Just a joke.
16. 02. 2018 17:00 CET 5 retired (101 - Frisiero Giacomo / Agnese Giovanni): retired after SS 5
16. 02. 2018 14:27 CET 5 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): We had some problems in the service park but all is ok. I'm doing the best I can.
16. 02. 2018 14:27 CET 5 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): A lot of gravel appearing now, and maybe I was too hesitant in the new car. I also wanted to look after my tyres in the gravel.
16. 02. 2018 14:15 CET 5 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): The first half was really, really good and I could drive exactly how I wanted. The road is cleaning and we have to make the most of that. I struggled more in the last five kilometres.
16. 02. 2018 14:12 CET 5 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I was struggling a lot with the rear - difficult to keep it in the ruts.
16. 02. 2018 14:12 CET 5 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Bloody tricky but good fun. I'll throw the kitchen sink at it, If I have fun the times always come.
16. 02. 2018 14:12 CET 5 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A good stage from Lappi. We had a good ride too. Now we must continue.
16. 02. 2018 14:11 CET 5 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Sounds good. Quite surprised. I felt that I didn't have grip, there was a lot of gravel, it felt more slippery than this morning. In these conditions if you push hard, no chance. You have to be slow, slow.
16. 02. 2018 14:04 CET 5 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We had a good stage but I never know about the rhythm. The grip was good at the beginning but not at the end. We know we have quite a road position advantage.
16. 02. 2018 14:02 CET 5 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): When I have a rut to follow I don't need the chassis working, so when it's like this I can attack a bit more. But when it's smooth I struggle. My only target now is to say ahead of Ogier.
16. 02. 2018 14:00 CET 5 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): A lot better than before but still difficult. I didn't remember driving on the line being so difficult. The line is very narrow and there is lots of loose on the side.
16. 02. 2018 13:58 CET 5 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It's really bad, a lot worse than the morning. Quite a big struggle but that's what we have. We have to cope.
16. 02. 2018 13:58 CET 5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Conditions were even worse. It's the same story every year. Following a national rally? Impossible.
16. 02. 2018 15:28 CET 4 retired (91 - Vidal Amador / Camacho José): techical problem - gearbox after SS 4
16. 02. 2018 11:39 CET 4 retired (74 - Oldrati Enrico / Fappani Danilo): retired in SS 4
16. 02. 2018 11:20 CET 4 (74 - Oldrati Enrico / Fappani Danilo): stopped in stage
16. 02. 2018 11:09 CET 4 (72 - Williams Tom / Hall Phil): stopped in stage
16. 02. 2018 10:40 CET 4 flash info (31 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Not easy. We need to clean the road a bit for the R5 cars because the track width is not the same as the WRC cars.
16. 02. 2018 10:30 CET 4 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It's tricky to learn the car in conditions like this. I did my best, for sure there is room for improvement. I just have to learn with every metre.
16. 02. 2018 10:28 CET 4 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): This last section is very tricky, with more snow. There's a bit of a line, but its a bit like tobogganing - push too hard, get out of the line and you're in trouble.
16. 02. 2018 10:25 CET 4 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Better driving, and now I try to push a bit more. Tight competition here in Sweden.
16. 02. 2018 10:24 CET 4 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Really hairy. At one left-hander near the end I had the steering right over on the stops.
16. 02. 2018 10:23 CET 4 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A good morning. This stage was tricky towards the end. The front runners definitely have a disadvantage. I'm not pushing to the max. So far so good.
16. 02. 2018 10:21 CET 4 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Not so good, I lost the rhythm, I hit something on the line in the middle of the stage. Front right - bang. I was sure I had a problem, a puncture or a broken wheel.
16. 02. 2018 10:20 CET 4 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): In a really fast place there was a black clump on the inside of a corner. Never seen it before. No idea how it go there. A big surprise.
16. 02. 2018 10:19 CET 4 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I took it a bit more carefully, lots and lots of snow. The road is getting better with each car, so I tried to use my advantage.
16. 02. 2018 10:18 CET 4 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): In a straight line I hit something on the right-hand side. I thought it was a puncture. It's like this when there is so much snow - it can hide something.
16. 02. 2018 10:18 CET 4 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Quite ok, but the last six kilometres had not been ploughed very well. Almost aquaplaning in the conditions, very tricky at this end.
16. 02. 2018 10:17 CET 4 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The organisers can screw themselves. No plough for the last six kilometres. It was already unfair to be first on the road here.
16. 02. 2018 10:15 CET 4 (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): puncture
16. 02. 2018 10:10 CET 4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's normal for a Sweden winter.
16. 02. 2018 10:22 CET 3 retired (46 - Linari Gianluca / Arena Nicola): accident in SS 3
16. 02. 2018 09:59 CET 3 (36 - Arai Hiroki / MacNeall Glenn): missed junction
16. 02. 2018 09:55 CET 3 flash info (33 - Pieniążek Łukasz / Mazur Przemysław): One big moment where we almost went off.
16. 02. 2018 09:55 CET 3 flash info (32 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): Not easy out there but it's going good. I'm trying to get a rhythm now.
16. 02. 2018 09:55 CET 3 flash info (31 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): An ok rhythm, but not perfect. It's been a long time since our last rally in GB. We improve a bit here, we'll keep going.
16. 02. 2018 09:50 CET 3 flash info (21 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): Everything works ok, need to build up experience, having fun in the snow.
16. 02. 2018 09:48 CET 3 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): I lost time in the end there, the car just started sliding, that's how it is. We'll have a look in service.
16. 02. 2018 09:47 CET 3 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Quite tricky, not a lot of grip. I struggled with braking and traction. I was fighting in there in a few places because it was difficult to stop for the corners.
16. 02. 2018 09:44 CET 3 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): It's the same as the first one, you have to keep in the line, and I'm struggling to get the front end in. We will make some set-up changes to help the confidence.
16. 02. 2018 09:43 CET 3 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It was ok. A lot of grip. Better, but everyone is improving.
16. 02. 2018 09:40 CET 3 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Trying to keep it really clean and tidy and neat. No mistakes. We're in the ballpark. We keep fighting.
16. 02. 2018 09:37 CET 3 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It was ok, you can push hard and gain time if you are prepared to take risks. There's a long way to to, so I'm happy with my drive.
16. 02. 2018 09:37 CET 3 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): A much better stage.
16. 02. 2018 09:32 CET 3 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I enjoyed every moment. I think the time is good.
16. 02. 2018 09:32 CET 3 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Just driving my rally, I can see the lines in the road ahead, but I just don't have the confidence.
16. 02. 2018 09:27 CET 3 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Getting better. The first stage was difficult and now I've started to get the rhythm.
16. 02. 2018 09:25 CET 3 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): A lot worse than the previous one. A lot of loose snow on the top. Very tough.
16. 02. 2018 09:23 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Not good. First we stalled on the start line, then there is more fresh snow on the line here than the first one.
16. 02. 2018 11:00 CET 2 retired (81 - Nikara Jarkko / Adachi Sayaka): radiator after SS 2
16. 02. 2018 09:44 CET 2 retired (98 - Carlström Joachim / Norman Jörgen): accident in SS 2
16. 02. 2018 09:44 CET 2 retired (97 - Blomberg Robert / Andersson Lars): accident in SS 2
16. 02. 2018 09:32 CET 2 (98 - Carlström Joachim / Norman Jörgen): stopped in stage
16. 02. 2018 09:30 CET 2 Car st.no.97 is blocking the road, cars behind stopped on that place.
16. 02. 2018 09:30 CET 2 (97 - Blomberg Robert / Andersson Lars): out of road
16. 02. 2018 08:48 CET 2 flash info (41 - Åhlin Fredrik / Sjöberg Joakim): We had a spin in here, lost 10 or 15sec. The engine feels a bit down on power, we'll go and take a look.
16. 02. 2018 08:42 CET 2 flash info (36 - Arai Hiroki / MacNeall Glenn): I got stuck in a snowbank and lost some time.
16. 02. 2018 08:41 CET 2 flash info (35 - Katsuta Takamoto / Salminen Marko): I really enjoyed this stage. My feeling was quite good. no mistakes.
16. 02. 2018 08:40 CET 2 flash info (34 - Huttunen Jari / Linnaketo Antti): I'm not so happy. We need to improve something.
16. 02. 2018 08:40 CET 2 flash info (33 - Pieniążek Łukasz / Mazur Przemysław): Really really tricky. We were off a couple of times, just little hits with the snow banks.
16. 02. 2018 08:40 CET 2 flash info (32 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): Wow. That's a surprise, actually. I didn't think I had a good run. Better for the guys behind I think.
16. 02. 2018 08:37 CET 2 flash info (31 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): A bit careful but we are here with no mistakes. Now we work from here.
16. 02. 2018 08:35 CET 2 flash info (21 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): No problem, I just don't know what the noise is.
16. 02. 2018 08:33 CET 2 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): It was ok. I took it steady. I wanted to get through this loop. Not fast, but I want to get through.
16. 02. 2018 08:31 CET 2 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Really tricky conditions, maybe I was too careful. I lost time at the end, I was slower there. I had a few moments near the start and I felt like I needed to take it down a bit.
16. 02. 2018 08:29 CET 2 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Difficult. Once you are off the ice strips there is no grip at all. In this light it's hard to see.
16. 02. 2018 08:29 CET 2 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Not the best one, struggling to find the braking points and apexes.
16. 02. 2018 08:26 CET 2 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I went straight in a junction and then sucked into a snow bank.
16. 02. 2018 08:23 CET 2 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A little bit here and there, the grip is tricky - up and down. Not an easy stage.
16. 02. 2018 08:22 CET 2 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It could have been better but okay, I'm still here. The roads is getting cleaner for the guys behind. An okay start but not so good.
16. 02. 2018 08:19 CET 2 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The road is getting messy now, lots of different lines. I tried to be neat and tidy but it's difficult to know where to push.
16. 02. 2018 08:19 CET 2 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): In some places more grip and suddenly you lose it. Not the perfect stage for visibility, I was looking for the road a lot. Not a good rhythm.
16. 02. 2018 08:15 CET 2 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Just a bit too cautious, any time I got the rear wheels out of the line. That's what I expected.
16. 02. 2018 08:15 CET 2 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We didn't have a good run compared to him. I thought we were doing ok but it was slippery and I didn't have the confidence. I don't trust the car in conditions when there is loose snow on the top.
16. 02. 2018 08:12 CET 2 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The car feels good but there is a lot of loose snow on the top near the start. On the ice the car feels good. Ogier's lines are everywhere - he's pushing harder than I am.
16. 02. 2018 08:10 CET 2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Difficult. There has been no snow plough in the road. I try my best, but there were a couple oo moments. It's difficult.
15. 02. 2018 20:59 CET 1 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It feels very nice to be back at Sweden in a rally car and not as a reporter like last year - this is where I belong.
15. 02. 2018 20:58 CET 1 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Not a good stage, I didn't drive well. A bad start but ok, we will try to do better tomorrow. I am surprised there is not so many spectators.
15. 02. 2018 20:54 CET 1 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It would be great to be able to fight for the victory but there are many good drivers. Tomorrow we will start and I hope I will wake up in a good mood.
15. 02. 2018 20:54 CET 1 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Ok, this was the first stage in the car and I don't have a lot of feeling. I need to learn more. I was quite nervous in here - I was afraid of making a stupid mistake. I'm glad to get it over.
15. 02. 2018 20:51 CET 1 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We will try to fight, this is one of my favorite events and especially this year with the snow conditions. Whatever, we will push hard, tomorrow is the key.
15. 02. 2018 20:50 CET 1 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The best winter conditions I have seen since 2014. An exciting rally in prospect.
15. 02. 2018 20:50 CET 1 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I never went well in this super special, I'm sure the others will go faster but the car felt surprising good in there. Tomorrow will be a different rally, if the snow comes tonight it will be a challenge.
15. 02. 2018 20:44 CET 1 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I hope I can manage the same way as Monte Carlo - except the next stage. I didn't feel so comfortable on the shakedown, I hope tomorrow's stages will be better suited for us.
15. 02. 2018 20:44 CET 1 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): It felt like a long time away so it's good to be back. This is a good way to shake off the cobwebs. We'll give it a good push tomorrow.
15. 02. 2018 20:41 CET 1 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Nice to be back in this car. It's difficult to find the rhythm in this class.
15. 02. 2018 20:41 CET 1 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Ok, a little bit of a surprise with the rear again in some place, but I'm ready to go and play in the snow tomorrow.
15. 02. 2018 20:38 CET 1 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Menkerud Cato): I'm going to put on a show - it's a serious job. I hope it will be good weekend.
15. 02. 2018 20:35 CET 1 flash info (40 - Abbring Kevin / Tsjoen Pieter): Just the second time I see snow with a rally car.
15. 02. 2018 20:30 CET 1 flash info (62 - Folb Terry / Guieu Christopher): This is my first rally in Sweden and I don't have a lot of experience. A podium would be a good result.
15. 02. 2018 20:30 CET 1 flash info (61 - Bergkvist Emil / Fløene Ola): It's important that you get a good start here. It's my home rally and I'm very grateful to everyone who has helped me. The car feels good.
15. 02. 2018 20:21 CET 1 flash info (42 - Adielsson Mattias / Johansson Andreas): It feels really good in the car - a great package. I've done only 250 km in this car but I'm ready for this rally.
15. 02. 2018 20:21 CET 1 flash info (43 - Tuohino Janne / Hämäläinen Reeta): When I saw the times this morning I thought ok - let's try and get the podium here.
15. 02. 2018 20:19 CET 1 flash info (32 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): Really fun to see all the spectators out here, I really enjoyed it, clean through.
15. 02. 2018 20:17 CET 1 flash info (102 - Kristoffersson Johan / Barth Patrik): A lot of fun, this place is where I'll feel the most comfortable in the rally! Nice to drive against Pontus here - very good.
15. 02. 2018 20:17 CET 1 flash info (31 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Absolutely fantastic here - good to beat Johan. Now we focus on the rally tomorrow.
