17 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The rally was so difficult. On Friday, we knew if we were in the top-five or -six we would be really happy. But we also knew this is not the event where the fastest guy wins; it would be the smartest. We managed to do the rally without any issues. It's been a great effort from the team so we're very happy. Now it looks interesting for the championship. We'll keep pushing.

16. 09. 2018 13:14 CET
17 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I'm quite satisfied. The main thing was to get second place in the rally. It's great for the team – absolutely fantastic.

16. 09. 2018 13:07 CET
17 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It's been a great weekend. My first target was to try and manage the car and I did. We need some more pace to fight for the podium next year.
16. 09. 2018 14:01
16. 09. 2018 13:01 CET
17 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It was very important to take the manufacturers' points and not risk anything. I took it very safe and drove clever.
16. 09. 2018 13:56
16. 09. 2018 12:56 CET
17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was completely flat out. I knew there was not so much we could do because I think we are missing some pace but I did everything I could do with a puncture on the rear left.
16. 09. 2018 13:45
16. 09. 2018 12:45 CET
17 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): One of the toughest rallies I've experienced during my career. It wasn't easy but this is part of the game.
16. 09. 2018 13:42
16. 09. 2018 12:42 CET
17 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): That was absolutely flat out. We are fighting for the championship with some hard guys to beat but we deserved the win to be honest. We were leading the rally and were by far the fastest. But a small issue meant we stopped. I'm disappointed for the whole team but we win together and we lose together.
16. 09. 2018 13:42
16. 09. 2018 12:42 CET
17 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): The driving wasn't so bad but it was more slippery than expected. I think it's a positive end to a quite disastrous weekend.
16. 09. 2018 13:42
16. 09. 2018 12:42 CET
17 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): We had some good luck and some bad luck here. But that's five wins in a row this season and the title is really close.
16. 09. 2018 13:31
16. 09. 2018 12:31 CET
17 flash info (37 - Tempestini Simone / Itu Sergiu-Sebastian): We are really happy. It was a really hard rally with difficult stages for us and the car. I'm quite happy with our pace and the result.
16. 09. 2018 13:28
16. 09. 2018 12:28 CET
17 flash info (39 - Ingram Chris / Whittock Ross): It's been an unbelievable experience. It's my first WRC event in an R5 car so to do this is incredible. The strategy paid off.

16. 09. 2018 12:28 CET
16 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It's not what we wanted to do but there is only one objective for us. We're going to push now in the Power Stage and see what we can do.
16. 09. 2018 13:27
16. 09. 2018 12:27 CET
16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We have to try everything. We know we are missing some pace compared to the Hyundai. We know it will be hard to win the Power Stage but we have to try everything.
16. 09. 2018 13:27
16. 09. 2018 12:27 CET
16 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We'll see if we will be able to claim some extra points in there.
16. 09. 2018 13:26
16. 09. 2018 12:26 CET
16 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We were asked by the team to do early check in to TC. That's all really.
16. 09. 2018 13:26
16. 09. 2018 12:26 CET
16 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I have to say, you have to put some energy into your concentration. To step down on the rhythm, you really have to work with it.
16. 09. 2018 13:25
16. 09. 2018 12:25 CET
16 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): It's a about playing the long game in this rally. When you're in 'no man's land' it can be really hard because you have to look after the car. It can be really painful but it's what you have to do.
16. 09. 2018 13:25
16. 09. 2018 12:25 CET
16 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I have been trying to be safe but it's hard to drive safely with the good rhythm. We have one stage to go and we bring the car home.
16. 09. 2018 13:25
16. 09. 2018 12:25 CET
16 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Everything is fine. Just getting to the finish is all it's about today.

16. 09. 2018 12:19 CET
14 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): The feeling with the car is good with the same set-up as Friday which was nice. There was no driving for me yesterday so I relaxed so I can build up the power today.
16. 09. 2018 13:19
16. 09. 2018 12:19 CET
14 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Every point is important. We look forward and we go for the Power Stage points.
16. 09. 2018 13:18
16. 09. 2018 12:18 CET
14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think it's pretty short today. It was hard to accept yesterday's problems as we fought so hard and I made such a silly mistake on a slow corner. The only explanation I have is that my brain wasn't working properly for a short time.
16. 09. 2018 13:18
16. 09. 2018 12:18 CET
14 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It's just a case of getting through.
16. 09. 2018 13:18
16. 09. 2018 12:18 CET
14 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I'm focused hard. Let's see how it goes. It looks like Jari-Matti doesn't want to slow down too much.
16. 09. 2018 13:17
16. 09. 2018 12:17 CET
14 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We're playing safe – our tactic is to be smart.
16. 09. 2018 13:17
16. 09. 2018 12:17 CET
14 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): The plan is to just cruise. But even when you're taking it easy there's still a lot of things that can happen with the big rocks on the road. You need to stay absolutely focused.
16. 09. 2018 13:17
16. 09. 2018 12:17 CET
14 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It was a nice stage – it has a bit of everything. It will be a challenging one for the Power Stage.
16. 09. 2018 13:17
16. 09. 2018 12:17 CET
14 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We go full safety mode today. It's very important to salvage the points. No risk. Proper Sunday cruise.

15. 09. 2018 16:53 CET
13 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): If we'd had a run like this yesterday, it probably would be looking pretty good. We've just tried to look after the car today, with as little risk as possible but still keeping a nice rhythm. Okay, it's been frustrating at times, but we're here with no trouble.
15. 09. 2018 17:53
15. 09. 2018 16:53 CET
13 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I knew before the stage that my tyres were worse than his. With what I had, I'm quite satisfied with the job I did.
15. 09. 2018 17:52
15. 09. 2018 16:52 CET
13 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Let's see where Jari-Matti comes, but this has been quite a surprising rally. A lot happening but we knew it would be tough. We didn't have performance so we just had to keep it on the road - and that's what we've been doing. Now we need a 1-2 finish in this rally.
15. 09. 2018 17:52
15. 09. 2018 16:52 CET
13 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): We just stuck to our plan, kept doing the same thing and it's working. We'll drop some time here because our rear tyres were nearly bald. I said I'd try a different approach here. I've learned from my mistakes, going off too hard and too fast, it's difficult to hold back, but it's working.
15. 09. 2018 17:52
15. 09. 2018 16:52 CET
13 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Fourth place is pretty good but it's been a tough day. It's been pretty safe, but okay young drivers always want more pace! This part of the learning.

15. 09. 2018 15:00 CET
12 flash info (81 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): With Andreas' problems maybe I'll gain one more place. I'm happy with everything this weekend. Still more stages to go, so I'm concentrating on keeping the car on the road - and no punctures.
15. 09. 2018 15:55
15. 09. 2018 14:55 CET
12 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I must have put the wishbone on right, otherwise it would have fallen off.
15. 09. 2018 15:55
15. 09. 2018 14:55 CET
12 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The car is fine now, it was just overheating, now it is working really, really well. I thought I drove carefully here, so the time is a surprise. It seems the other drivers were more careful. Let's wait until the end of the day before we think about team orders.
15. 09. 2018 15:55
15. 09. 2018 14:55 CET
12 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): On this event anything can happen and you have to stay focused. I sacrificed this stage, with only slick tyres at the rear from the previous stage. Now for the long one we have nice tyres so I hope we can have a good run there.
15. 09. 2018 15:55
15. 09. 2018 14:55 CET
12 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): It's amazing out there. We're trying to keep a clean, smooth rally. It doesn't matter what Andreas does. The tyres are getting quite worn now so we're taking it easy.
15. 09. 2018 15:54
15. 09. 2018 14:54 CET
12 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Just driving through. Of course I try to keep the pace and do as good a job as possible. Still we are missing a bit. Fourth or fifth place would be okay.
15. 09. 2018 17:51
15. 09. 2018 16:51 CET
11 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I have no idea what happened. We had a bit of smoke in the stage (SS11), and we stopped several times to check there was no fire. There was nothing. Every time we stopped the smoke went down, so we thought it was just heat. It was the same again at the end of the stage. When we stopped it cooled down, all the heat had dispersed from the centre of the car and we thought everything was fine. Then it [the fire] just flew up from the rear right. We couldn't do anything. The extinguishers were no use. I'm gutted for everyone. It sounds pathetic but I love my rallying and I've destroyed a car. I can't believe it.
15. 09. 2018 17:48
15. 09. 2018 16:48 CET
11 Stage was stopped due to fire. Rest of the field will receive notional times.

15. 09. 2018 14:52 CET
11 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Incredible the conditions on the stage. We had a rear puncture and hydraulic pressure problems. Now we are losing time. Let's see what the hydraulic pressure does.

11 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I have no idea. A couple of kilometres in we began to get smoke in the car. Later I had to stop because I physically couldn't see. We have to go and take a look now.
15. 09. 2018 14:11
15. 09. 2018 13:11 CET
11 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Really hard on the tyres, you could feel them change at about 15 km. I didn't manage them the best.
15. 09. 2018 14:11
15. 09. 2018 13:11 CET
11 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Still it's really good. It was a big fight. We made it at the last minute and I'm happy to be here!

10 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Everything to play for. I tried to give it some more in this stage - hopefully we can make a bit of a difference.
15. 09. 2018 13:15
15. 09. 2018 12:15 CET
10 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I tried, but this stage was difficult to remember. I should have watched it yesterday evening. Instead, I was concentrating too much on the first stage.
15. 09. 2018 13:15
15. 09. 2018 12:15 CET
10 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I picked up a steering column issue on the previous stage, this stage was better, I can drive.
15. 09. 2018 13:14
15. 09. 2018 12:14 CET
10 (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): He has clipped a bank and the Yaris has drifted wide to the edge of steep embankment. Looks like it's beached, nose first, Italian-Job style. Lappi gets out to investigate, co-driver Janne Ferm has jumped into the driver's seat.
15. 09. 2018 13:14
15. 09. 2018 12:14 CET
10 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Tough, but I'm just trying to go through with a good rhythm. One of these days we'll be back with a good road position and I can go hammer and tongs.

15. 09. 2018 09:49 CET
9 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I'm trying to drive like I feel, fast but within my limits. It's tricky with so many stones coming out - the second pass will be tricky for sure. I'm trying to keep the pressure on. I'm really sorry for Thierry. They were going at an incredible speed and taking some risks.
15. 09. 2018 10:48
15. 09. 2018 09:48 CET
9 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The engine stalled in one of the hairpins. I don't know why it stalled, I wasn't in the wrong gear. That cost about four seconds. It could have been good - it was an important stage for us.
15. 09. 2018 10:48
15. 09. 2018 09:48 CET
9 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We need to keep going. We are fourth so we cannot be happy.

15. 09. 2018 09:48 CET
9 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): We stalled the car coming down to the hairpins, lost a few seconds there. It's very loose and on the medium tyres we've lose the balance of the car a bit.

15. 09. 2018 09:47 CET
9 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): A nice view close to the end? A lot of loose gravel, very twisty. I don't know. I'm frustrated, but you can only laugh. There is always something.

15. 09. 2018 09:16 CET
8 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The car doesn't turn, I'm really struggling. By accident I also turned off the anti-lag system for a while. I'm not happy. What can I do about it? Let's see.

15. 09. 2018 09:16 CET
8 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It's much smoother today, the road has a hard base. The target is to perform, still it's pretty difficult, hard to enjoy. Let's say I don't have full control yet.

8 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): It's a different rally compared to yesterday. A lot looser and no rocks or things to avoid. I'm trying to be really tidy but I can feel I'm losing time in the twisty stuff. Something to work on.
15. 09. 2018 10:16
15. 09. 2018 09:16 CET
8 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It's the same problem as always. The car doesn't downshift, we stall and then it doesn't restart.
15. 09. 2018 10:15
15. 09. 2018 09:15 CET
8 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I heard a pace note wrong - a right not a left - I had to spin the car. I stalled, then had to turn the car around. Not great.
15. 09. 2018 10:15
15. 09. 2018 09:15 CET
8 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): A lot of cleaning I think. A lot of loose gravel - wheelspin in third and fourth gears. The road was smooth, not rough at all, but lots of loose gravel.

14. 09. 2018 15:58 CET
7 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Really tough conditions. We're driving to a plan and trying to preserve the car but it is frustrating to see the other crews going so fast when taking risks.
14. 09. 2018 16:54
14. 09. 2018 15:54 CET
7 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): There is a lot of things I've learnt, but then there are things where I should be better. It's homework for next year.
14. 09. 2018 16:50
14. 09. 2018 15:50 CET
7 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I had another puncture on the last stage, so we had three completely destroyed tyres and one that was relatively okay.
14. 09. 2018 16:46
14. 09. 2018 15:46 CET
7 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It has not been an easy day, but at the end of the day we've had no problems. I think we'll end up about 16sec off the lead which is not too bad.
14. 09. 2018 16:33
14. 09. 2018 15:33 CET
7 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I had really, really bad tyres on this last stage. So I did a good stage time with the tyres I had left!
14. 09. 2018 16:29
14. 09. 2018 15:29 CET
7 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): On the long one I had a horrible set-up, then I made opposite changes and that got better. I went lower on the rear suspension for this stage.
14. 09. 2018 16:25
14. 09. 2018 15:25 CET
7 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I did something very different now, it is working here but it is something we can't use in the rough. I went lower in the ride height.
14. 09. 2018 16:22
14. 09. 2018 15:22 CET
7 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It is close. Nice to be here honestly. For us, the only shame is the dust in the morning which cost us a lot of seconds but I am generally happy for my day.
14. 09. 2018 16:18
14. 09. 2018 15:18 CET
7 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had to put it in reverse gear so I lost more or less 6 or 7 seconds in the stage. Ogier had a good run through on the first stage but then we pulled it back on the second.

14. 09. 2018 15:09 CET
6 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): It is obviously just the way it. The conditions are quite bad and it is hard to drive. You just have to play the sensible game.
14. 09. 2018 16:09
14. 09. 2018 15:09 CET
6 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I was just a bit carefully. There was two cars I had to slow down a bit for. When I drive flat out I can go well, but I have never been in these conditions before so I don't know the limit on the tyres or the cars.
14. 09. 2018 16:09
14. 09. 2018 15:09 CET
6 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Mads and Elfyn both off, I had to slow down quite a bit for the both of them. It's an absolutle war zone. I'm just trying to enjoy it now.
14. 09. 2018 16:08
14. 09. 2018 15:08 CET

14. 09. 2018 15:07 CET
6 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I must say, Thierry had an amazing stage. When it is very loose then maybe our car isn't the best to drive in these conditions. When it is cleaner and faster our car is very good. But the rally is very long so let's see what will happen.
14. 09. 2018 16:07
14. 09. 2018 15:07 CET
6 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We had a rear-right wheel issue. It looks like I was being too careful as well.
14. 09. 2018 16:07
14. 09. 2018 15:07 CET
6 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I'm doing all that I can, but I cannot do any better. I know what is wrong, but I don't want to say! I have a hunch but cannot fix it!
14. 09. 2018 16:06
14. 09. 2018 15:06 CET
6 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It is a high-grip road but we have absolutely no grip. Even worse than in the morning, difficult to understand.
14. 09. 2018 16:06
14. 09. 2018 15:06 CET
6 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We are now I guess very close to each other. I didn't expect it to be so tough in this one. In these conditions anything can happen.
14. 09. 2018 16:06
14. 09. 2018 15:06 CET
6 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): In the tough parts you have to push to get a good time. Ogier surprised us by pushing a lot harder than expected so we had to respond.

5 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Incredible rough, testament to the cars to hold up to it. Toughest conditions I've been in. Some guys are taking some risks, I take my hat off to them.
14. 09. 2018 14:43
14. 09. 2018 13:43 CET
5 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): That was a good time, but the stage is crazy bumpy. A lot of hits to the car and the body, I hope my stomach is okay! The car is working really nicely in the rough places, it is really strong.
14. 09. 2018 14:41
14. 09. 2018 13:41 CET
5 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Slow puncture. I was in the middle of the road. I was praying it wouldn't go down and then it just went. I don't believe it. I did 25km with a puncture.
14. 09. 2018 14:38
14. 09. 2018 13:38 CET
5 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I think I have a slight idea of how it happened. Just from the road, just a little bit shocked about what I just experienced. Impossible to judge what I'm trying to do.

14. 09. 2018 14:24
14. 09. 2018 13:24 CET
5 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It went worse, we had a lot less grip than in the morning. It seems the changes I made don't work at all. I can't drive at all.
14. 09. 2018 14:17
14. 09. 2018 13:17 CET

14. 09. 2018 12:27 CET
5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): That's good! Without dust the stage is much more enjoyable. Really, really, bumpy. In this section whatever you do there is risks for sure.
14. 09. 2018 11:21
14. 09. 2018 10:21 CET
4 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): This stage was really technical, really twisty, all the way down from the start to the finish. Maybe the softer compound would be better because it is very slippy now.
14. 09. 2018 11:20
14. 09. 2018 10:20 CET
4 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Everything looks okay visual. We'll check it out with the guys back in service. I thought this stage went alright but then the time isn't great. Not getting any gain with the road condition.
14. 09. 2018 11:20
14. 09. 2018 10:20 CET
4 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): There is no knowledge of how hard we can drive the car in these conditions. These cars are taking a lot of hits but there is a limit - I just hope I don't find it on this rally.
14. 09. 2018 11:20
14. 09. 2018 10:20 CET
4 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Just a little bit too cautious in places. I'm just concious this Friday curse is hanging around. I had a big impact at the start on the front-left and I thought I might have had a puncture but everything seems ok.
14. 09. 2018 11:20
14. 09. 2018 10:20 CET
4 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): The stage is ok, a little bit smoother. The soft tyre of Andreas can help him in here. The time is not so bad, the conditions are quite unpredictable. It is about tuning the driving for the different stages. I'm surprised about the lack of drama so far.
14. 09. 2018 11:19
14. 09. 2018 10:19 CET
4 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We were told to carry on. Reminds me of the R2 days, so some good memories at least.
14. 09. 2018 10:57
14. 09. 2018 09:57 CET
4 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I don't understand. I thought I had a good run. I don't have a chance. I'm absolutely amazed. Lacking grip is one issue.
14. 09. 2018 10:57
14. 09. 2018 09:57 CET
4 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I think the last stage made the difference, I really tried to save them on that one. I think mediums were the correct choice.
14. 09. 2018 10:57
14. 09. 2018 09:57 CET
4 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I need to be faster, but I cannot be. I don't have any grip. I was on the clean line, but I can't do any better. The time wasn't good.
14. 09. 2018 10:56
14. 09. 2018 09:56 CET
4 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): This one was quite smooth roads, nothing too special.
14. 09. 2018 10:56
14. 09. 2018 09:56 CET
4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We tried, but we didn't have the best conditions for us in the morning. The dust on the first stage wasn't great, on the second stage we tried to push but Thierry went even faster.
14. 09. 2018 10:56
14. 09. 2018 09:56 CET
4 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We were helped by the dust at the start of the first stage. I feel this stage was my best, less big stones on the road but more sand.

14. 09. 2018 10:24
14. 09. 2018 09:24 CET
3 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Really rough, it's not really sweeping. There are some big rocks on the top. The car felt weird on this one, like something is broken or I've bent the rear arm or something.
14. 09. 2018 10:24
14. 09. 2018 09:24 CET
3 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It is really tough, but the beginning of the stage was better than the one before. The car is working nicely but I'm struggling with the pace.
14. 09. 2018 10:24
14. 09. 2018 09:24 CET
3 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Worse than I expected since the recce, I backed off quite a bit. Rhythm was okay at the start. There is still quite a long way to go.
14. 09. 2018 10:23
14. 09. 2018 09:23 CET
3 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It is getting tough, the start is quite nice but the end is not so easy. The times are quite close, which surprises quite a bit on a stage like that.
14. 09. 2018 10:23
14. 09. 2018 09:23 CET
3 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We have an issue, we're going to look at it now. I don't know what it is.
14. 09. 2018 10:23
14. 09. 2018 09:23 CET
3 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I started to back off, I didn't very, very well at the end. I was too cautious towards the end. That's where all the time was lost.
14. 09. 2018 10:23
14. 09. 2018 09:23 CET
3 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I tried to save the tyres a bit for the next stage so we'll see what I can do there. The stage is very bumpy, I think the second pass will be extra challenging. I'm trying to be a bit cautious when I can.
14. 09. 2018 10:22
14. 09. 2018 09:22 CET
3 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It gets really tough in the end, I wanted to be safe and get through to the end. Clearly I was too slow, but what can I do?
14. 09. 2018 10:22
14. 09. 2018 09:22 CET
3 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It seems when it gets rough I can't any grip. It is skipping on the big stones and not really absorbing anything.
14. 09. 2018 10:21
14. 09. 2018 09:21 CET
3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was ok because it was later in the day - there was not as much dust on this one. I tried, I don't know why we were slower than Thierry.
14. 09. 2018 10:21
14. 09. 2018 09:21 CET
3 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It's horrible conditions to be first on the road. There are no lines and the wheels are spinning. It is more dry on this one, I try to do a good stage, the feeling was quite okay but there is a huge amount of cleaning.

14. 09. 2018 09:14 CET
2 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It is quite tricky, especially now because there is no wind at all. In some places I was completely lost in the dust even despite the three minute gap. No big push as this rally is really long.
14. 09. 2018 10:14
14. 09. 2018 09:14 CET
2 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): It is really bad. It is damp quite from the rain but we're just driving with a cruising balance. I think we need to adjust the car a little bit for some of the corners.
14. 09. 2018 10:14
14. 09. 2018 09:14 CET
2 flash info (6 - Paddon Hayden / Marshall Sebastian): Really difficult, as I'm sure everyone is saying. It is really hard to gauge the speed when it is so tricky. Nice to come in and know we've not dropped a whole lot.

14. 09. 2018 09:13 CET
2 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): No problems. It is difficult to find a driving rhythm when there are a lot of rocks. I was looking after the tyres as well, but now we are a lot of time behind the fastest time.
14. 09. 2018 10:13
14. 09. 2018 09:13 CET
2 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Flat to the square, right! I came to the end and I didn't even know what minute I was on. It was just a survivors stage, keeping it in the middle. Just listening to what Scott says and hope for the best.
14. 09. 2018 10:13
14. 09. 2018 09:13 CET
2 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I struggled a lot in the dust. I cannot clear my window, it just leaves like a blue film on the screen. With the dust I couldn't clean it off and I lost the rhythm. The feeling was ok.
14. 09. 2018 10:12
14. 09. 2018 09:12 CET
2 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We lost the intercom initially, we managed to get that back. In the dust I could see nothing and I just went into the bank. On the intercom I felt a small impact and it went off, and then Dan fiddled with the connections and we got it back.
14. 09. 2018 10:12
14. 09. 2018 09:12 CET
2 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is quite ok, but a lot of dust. I was struggling to see. It started at 8km and carried on until almost 30km.

14. 09. 2018 09:12 CET

2 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Let's say the last 10km were nice, really nice. But the beginning was so slippy, and in the middle it was like a wall of dust. There are so many rocks on the side of the road.

2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): So much dust! We cannot see anything, only the start and end is damp. The rest has really bad dust. At least I'm happy to only lose 5sec, I was expecting to lose 20 or more.

2 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): First we had the fire alarm in the hotel in the morning and we had to evacuate. Then to start the day with this test is demanding. At a few points we had to really slow down. Our car works well in these conditions, but I could have done better.
