Information

Date and time SS Information
26. 01. 2020 13:18 CET 16 Power stage times: Neuville 9:39.076, Ogier 9:39.092
26. 01. 2020 13:16 CET 16 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We had an incredible feeling the last couple of days and we were able to catch back the time. We have been chasing this win for a while but we showed our performance this weekend and it's a great way to start the season.
26. 01. 2020 13:13 CET 16 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): We were happy until last night - I can't say I have been happy today. It never really clicked really and I'm not sure of the reason. There's some work to do but overall a positive weekend.
26. 01. 2020 13:08 CET 16 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think we can be happy with the start of the season and starting with a podium with the new team is very good. There is some way to go to extract all of the potential from this car but I really enjoyed it.
26. 01. 2020 13:03 CET 16 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It’s a really good season opener and after the disappointment of Friday, the pace on Saturday wasn’t where I wanted it to be but I improved step by step and learned a lot about the car this weekend.
26. 01. 2020 12:59 CET 16 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I am pleased - that wasn't a bad stage. I don't think we will take any Power Stage points which is sad but otherwise a good weekend! Thanks to the team for their hard work and it was nice to start the weekend like this.
26. 01. 2020 12:58 CET 16 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It didn't go very well for us. I had bad tyre choice today so I was just driving slowly to make sure I finished. For sure it's not my best rally.
26. 01. 2020 12:53 CET 16 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): I can see how much progress I made from the beginning to the end of the rally. We had no tyres left before the last stage so I needed to be very careful here. Thank you very much to the team and the gravel crew - they did a brilliant job.
26. 01. 2020 12:49 CET 16 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): We tried to get some good times and for this stage the target was to get eighth position. It wasn't the easiest one but sometimes we have some harder rallies.
26. 01. 2020 12:49 CET 16 flash info (40 - Jocius Deividas / Varža Mindaugas): We did it. A big thanks to the M-Sport family for this chance - it's incredible.
26. 01. 2020 12:43 CET 16 flash info (27 - Camilli Eric / Buresi François-Xavier): I am very happy - we were fastest R5 car which is great! Thanks to Citroën and my co-driver - it was his first Monte ever.
26. 01. 2020 12:36 CET 16 flash info (28 - Ciamin Nicolas / Roche Yannick): I think the result is good - I couldn't expect to beat Eric but I am happy. There are still a few things to improve on the car as it was my first event in it, but overall everything was good.
26. 01. 2020 12:32 CET 16 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was a good weekend so I wanted to enjoy the last stage. We came here to win and I think we have proved that we could win - we were faster than everyone. We win our category, we are leading the championship and we are happy.
26. 01. 2020 12:28 CET 16 Starting order: 1.Østberg 2.Ciamin 3.Camilli 4.Jocius 5.Suninen 6.Katsuta 7.Loeb 8.Rovanperä 9.Lappi 10.Ogier 11.Evans 12.Neuville
26. 01. 2020 12:20 CET 15 retired (29 - Pedro .. / Baldaccini Emanuele): retired in SS 15
26. 01. 2020 11:37 CET 15 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): That didn't feel like such a bad run but obviously the time is not so good. I'm not 100% sure why.
26. 01. 2020 11:32 CET 15 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think with that kind of gap it isn't really possible but we will keep trying. The feeling was better in the car compared to on the first stage this morning.
26. 01. 2020 11:30 CET 15 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had a good stage - I did the maximum. They are all capable of a surprise so I pushed hard.
26. 01. 2020 11:27 CET 15 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): I had one tyre completely destroyed in the stage before and now we have to finish the tyres to try and save the rally so I was very slow.
26. 01. 2020 11:23 CET 15 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I am not thinking too much about the power stage. I am concentrating on my own performance and the overall position.
26. 01. 2020 11:21 CET 15 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It was quite interesting but it's not so bad if you follow the clean line.
26. 01. 2020 11:20 CET 15 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): It was a little bit easier than the morning loop but still a challenging stage! I am looking forward to next year also.
26. 01. 2020 11:16 CET 15 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): There is a clean line which is helping a lot but hopefully we are somewhere there.
26. 01. 2020 10:53 CET 15 Start will be delayed for 5 minutes.
26. 01. 2020 12:58 CET 14 retired (73 - Althaus Sacha / Zbinden Lisiane): retired after SS 14
26. 01. 2020 10:15 CET 14 Stage is cancelled.
26. 01. 2020 09:58 CET 14 Stage is stopped.
26. 01. 2020 09:55 CET 14 retired (22 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): accident in SS 14
26. 01. 2020 09:53 CET 14 flash info (27 - Camilli Eric / Buresi François-Xavier): It's special for me because it's my home but I don't know this stage to be honest.
26. 01. 2020 09:49 CET 14 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): I knew in here that I hadn't had a great stage. It's so difficult to find the grip.
26. 01. 2020 09:48 CET 14 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Whatever tyres we put on the car we don't really have the speed at the moment.
26. 01. 2020 09:41 CET 14 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Not a good stage for us - it's not made for a Hyundai! Our car is far too long but I tried to push and the conditions are tricky, so hopefully this compensates a little.
26. 01. 2020 09:38 CET 14 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): Our tyres are completely destroyed and I had no grip at the front so I made a little mistake on a tight hairpin! Our tyres are too soft and it's not good.
26. 01. 2020 09:35 CET 14 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I think we had a safe tyre choice as it was not really clear what would happen.
26. 01. 2020 09:35 CET 14 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): That was not so nice - in this stage we tried three softs and one super-soft and it was so slippery. We just wanted to test how the car felt but the end part of the stage was really tricky.
26. 01. 2020 09:35 CET 14 (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): was out of road
26. 01. 2020 09:30 CET 14 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): Our main target is to finish the rally so I can not take any big risks. There were some very shiny places which were incredibly tricky but also good for learning.
26. 01. 2020 09:26 CET 14 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): It was a challenging stage with a lot of black top places and it's like ice in some places. Hopefully we can do something in the power stage later.
26. 01. 2020 09:16 CET 14 Stage is mostly dry and damp.
26. 01. 2020 09:10 CET 14 Stage will be delayed for 5 minutes.
26. 01. 2020 08:54 CET 13 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): Our run wasn't bad, not perfect but that is a good stage from Thierry.
26. 01. 2020 08:49 CET 13 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Not a great stage for us, I was not perfectly comfortable. Like I say, I will never push more than what I feel.
26. 01. 2020 08:46 CET 13 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I tried but the grip was higher than I expected towards the end so I don't know if I pushed enough.
26. 01. 2020 08:43 CET 13 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): I tried my best but I was just a bit too careful in the downhills. We had a lot of snow in the information but there was nearly nothing. We will see in the end.
26. 01. 2020 08:43 CET 13 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): t was too slippery for me! In the beginning I thought okay, this is going to be spectacular, but when the wall came closer it wasn't so much fun anymore.
26. 01. 2020 08:43 CET 13 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I started quite carefully because we have nothing to push for and we are just learning new conditions. I was hoping for a better run but I was not so confident.
26. 01. 2020 08:35 CET 13 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): Some corners were very slippery and I didn't expect that. Okay, no mistakes but I was a little careful.
26. 01. 2020 08:31 CET 13 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): The conditions are quite damp but there is a lot of gravel on the last section and it was quite slippery.
26. 01. 2020 08:18 CET 13 Stage is mostly dry with some damp parts and places with rest of ice.
26. 01. 2020 08:16 CET 13 Tyre choice: Ogier/Evans/Rovanperä/Neuville/Lappi : 3SS + 3S, Katsuta: 4SS+2S, Loeb: 5SS, Suninen: 2SS + 4S
25. 01. 2020 20:54 CET 12 retired (88 - Jaussaud Bernard / Jaussaud Carine): retired after SS 12
25. 01. 2020 16:57 CET 12 retired (45 - Baffoun Philippe / Maurin Mathieu): accident in SS 12
25. 01. 2020 16:20 CET 12 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was a tricky stage and we took a gamble on the tyres before we started the stage. I think the game is on.
25. 01. 2020 16:20 CET 12 flash info (27 - Camilli Eric / Buresi François-Xavier): I enjoyed today but it has been difficult to find a good rhythm. I crossed my tyres for the last stage and was able to push. When you don't push, it's not easy.
25. 01. 2020 16:17 CET 12 (22 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): was out of road
25. 01. 2020 16:08 CET 12 (22 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): spun
25. 01. 2020 16:04 CET 12 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I was too cautious on the ice but there were no real mistakes.
25. 01. 2020 16:03 CET 12 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): It's so difficult to judge. I thought I was through so I just touched the throttle and off she went into a ditch. I was lucky but you need that sometimes! There is still a long way to go.
25. 01. 2020 15:59 CET 12 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I tried hard - they are very slippery conditions and I don't think I can do any better.
25. 01. 2020 15:58 CET 12 (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): was out of road
25. 01. 2020 15:53 CET 12 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I have been just trying to improve and not concentrating on the guys behind. Tomorrow we will do the same.
25. 01. 2020 15:52 CET 12 (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): spun
25. 01. 2020 15:51 CET 12 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): We went with crossed tyres for safety. The snow and ice part was melting more than we expected so with four slicks it would be better. I think we were a bit too safe.
25. 01. 2020 15:49 CET 12 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): It was not easy and not enjoyable but we survived and this is how I can learn.
25. 01. 2020 15:45 CET 12 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): There was a lot of ice ruts so there was grip but you need to be careful in the line. The ice notes were much better than the stage before.
25. 01. 2020 15:42 CET 12 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): Picked up a puncture towards the end - we were like a slush plough in there as there's so much on the road.
25. 01. 2020 15:42 CET 12 (44 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): puncture
25. 01. 2020 16:57 CET 11 retired (35 - Nucita Andrea / Di Caro Bernardo): retired after SS 11
25. 01. 2020 15:02 CET 11 (35 - Nucita Andrea / Di Caro Bernardo): rolled
25. 01. 2020 15:01 CET 11 (24 - Yates Rhys / Morgan James): was out of road
25. 01. 2020 14:57 CET 11 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I am feeling much better in the car. Now it's my car again and I feel at home, I'm just enjoying it. It's nice.
25. 01. 2020 14:55 CET 11 flash info (28 - Ciamin Nicolas / Roche Yannick): It was easier than this morning and the last downhill section was very nice.
25. 01. 2020 14:55 CET 11 flash info (27 - Camilli Eric / Buresi François-Xavier): It was very tricky on the first two corners with super-soft. We are here to be safe and it was quite tricky so I went very very slow.
25. 01. 2020 14:47 CET 11 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We have to keep pushing the gap - we are extremely close so let's keep going.
25. 01. 2020 14:42 CET 11 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): I was just a bit careful on the ice I think.
25. 01. 2020 14:41 CET 11 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I think it's not enough but I did everything I could. I hope it's a good time but I am not sure.
25. 01. 2020 14:37 CET 11 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): Nothing happened but I was just cautious in the downhill sections. I drove well and took no big risks.
25. 01. 2020 14:35 CET 11 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): The notes were fine and it was easier to trust them. I was still too slow on the downhill sections but thanks to the safety crew - a big improvement from the morning.
25. 01. 2020 14:29 CET 11 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It's drying out and melting a lot. In some places it was properly dry conditions, but in the downhill sections there is some ice which is tricky.
25. 01. 2020 14:25 CET 11 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): With slick tyres it feels good. Every time I drive I am getting better so I am enjoying the car a lot.
25. 01. 2020 14:22 CET 11 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): Slicks on the ice! Later on in the downhill section there was ruts where I had grip but I was way too slow in those places.
25. 01. 2020 14:20 CET 11 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): I am just gaining some experience - that felt quite clean and I enjoyed it.
25. 01. 2020 14:05 CET 11 tyres for afternoon loop: Ogier/Evans/Neuville/Loeb: 5x super-soft. Suninen/Lappi: 6x super-soft. Rovanperä/Greensmith: 4x super-soft, 2x winter Katsuta: 4x super-soft, 2x studded
25. 01. 2020 14:16 CET 10 (41 - Solberg Oliver / Johnston Aaron): damaged wheel
25. 01. 2020 12:29 CET 10 retired (86 - Oberti Damien / Escartefigue Thomas): retired in SS 10
25. 01. 2020 11:52 CET 10 flash info (22 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): It's pretty fun. It's been melting a lot so it has been difficult to trust the notes from the ice crew. I was a little bit careful in some places but it's okay. Maybe in the next loop we will have some different tyre choices so we will see.
25. 01. 2020 11:49 CET 10 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I am not happy with the car at the moment. It's not going well, I am not comfortable but I don't know what is going on The setup is just completely undriveable so we need to go back to something we know.
25. 01. 2020 11:49 CET 10 flash info (28 - Ciamin Nicolas / Roche Yannick): I am just keeping position. We have had a minute gap since Thursday so we are just cruising now and watching the guys behind.
25. 01. 2020 11:42 CET 10 flash info (27 - Camilli Eric / Buresi François-Xavier): I went quite carefully in this stage. Let's see this afternoon.
25. 01. 2020 11:36 CET 10 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's okay - I am happy because it was very tricky conditions. I struggled to trust the gravel crew information.
25. 01. 2020 11:34 CET 10 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): It was a good run and I felt I was able to be smooth and carry speed in most places. We tried to not destroy the studs in the first part and it's definitely improved since the gravel crews have been through.
25. 01. 2020 11:33 CET 10 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We are much more confident. I thought I had a good stage but when I have seen the time maybe it's not good enough.
25. 01. 2020 11:27 CET 10 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): I tried to save the tyres at the beginning but maybe I slowed down too much.
25. 01. 2020 11:24 CET 10 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): The pacenotes from the safety crew - as the sun is out it's melting the ice so much but I don't know until it's too late.
25. 01. 2020 11:21 CET 10 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): This one was better - I tried to be cleaner on the tarmac sections because I was too aggressive with the car on the previous time.
25. 01. 2020 11:18 CET 10 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): I wanted to keep the super-softs as an option for this stage, we didn't use them but it's part of the learning for me.
25. 01. 2020 11:16 CET 10 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): I was saving my tyres too much at the beginning because I thought there would be more ice.
25. 01. 2020 11:12 CET 10 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): After yesterday, the ice is the last thing I want to see but today is about rebuilding the confidence and enjoying the driving.
25. 01. 2020 11:46 CET 9 retired (60 - Grandordy Franck / Vincent Patrice): retired after SS 9
25. 01. 2020 11:45 CET 9 retired (67 - Poizot Thibaut / Grand Marion): retired in SS 9
25. 01. 2020 10:35 CET 9 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It's a completely different day today - we are out on the studded tyres. We tried to have a good rhythm and it was not a good stage but it wasn't bad either, so we need to try and keep a good average.
25. 01. 2020 10:23 CET 9 flash info (28 - Ciamin Nicolas / Roche Yannick): We went pretty slowly, we have nothing to play for so it is okay.
25. 01. 2020 10:15 CET 9 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think it was a good stage to start the day and there are very small gaps, so everything is there to take.
25. 01. 2020 10:12 CET 9 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): I was a little bit careful in a few places here but overall it was okay.
25. 01. 2020 10:10 CET 9 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): e have to see what the guys are doing behind. I had some nice corrections so I was able to drive a good stage with plenty of confidence.
25. 01. 2020 10:08 CET 9 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It was a very tricky stage with a lot of ice and little snow. I was a bit careful because I didn't want to make a mistake.
25. 01. 2020 10:05 CET 9 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): The information before was not precise enough so I couldn't be confident enough.
25. 01. 2020 10:02 CET 9 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): I made a mistake and in the corner there was black ice and I hit the snow bank. We had to stop and get the snow out of the grille.
25. 01. 2020 10:00 CET 9 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It was a really bad stage for me. I don't have so much experience of snow tyre driving so we were really slow.
25. 01. 2020 09:54 CET 9 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): Not very good - I was struggling with the studs and I was too careful on the downhill section.
25. 01. 2020 09:52 CET 9 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): As soon as you start to get towards the top it's really tricky with a lot of black ice.
25. 01. 2020 09:51 CET 9 (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): was out of road
25. 01. 2020 09:33 CET 9 30% of stage is ice.
24. 01. 2020 17:16 CET 8 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was okay. I am glad to be through the day and it was a very tricky start to the morning - of course I was disappointed. I know this rally and I know there is always a chance, so I am happy to be back in the lead and we will keep pushing.
24. 01. 2020 17:15 CET 8 flash info (27 - Camilli Eric / Buresi François-Xavier): I have had a small problem with my brakes and I have to pump all of the time. I tried to push very hard so that we didn't lose too much time, so let's see.
24. 01. 2020 17:09 CET 8 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): I am quite happy that we survived the day. It was not easy of course, especially because I have limited experience in these conditions. Tomorrow we will continue the same way and see how much we can improve.
24. 01. 2020 17:07 CET 8 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It is getting better all of the time. I didn't want to push too much but now the pace is getting better. I still want to do a little better but it's alright at this point.
24. 01. 2020 17:06 CET 8 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It was okay - the two drivers in front are very fast and I could not match the speed so we will try to hold onto this position.
24. 01. 2020 17:05 CET 8 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It was the best stage of the day but the time is not good. I really pushed but clearly I am doing something wrong.
24. 01. 2020 17:04 CET 8 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): Not a bad day overall - more muddy than what we expected. We probably could have done something a little bit different but it's okay.
24. 01. 2020 17:04 CET 8 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's been a tough day - we have tyre wear so we are happy to be here. It's not a bad time.
24. 01. 2020 16:59 CET 8 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had a good stage to be honest. We were fighting a bit today with the corrections from the gravel crew. Not an easy day for us and it is disappointing.
24. 01. 2020 16:59 CET 8 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): The conditions are tricky because it is dry tarmac with a lot of mud cuttings making it slippery. We went with a super-soft tyre choice and it was a lot better.
24. 01. 2020 16:32 CET 7 retired (45 - Baffoun Philippe / Maurin Mathieu): accident in SS 7
24. 01. 2020 15:48 CET 7 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was a clean stage - I always feel like I can be a little bit faster but the average is all we need to think about.
24. 01. 2020 15:45 CET 7 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): That was much drier than this morning. Step by step I need to go faster but it was good.
24. 01. 2020 15:45 CET 7 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It felt good. I think we made quite a safe tyre choice and because this one was so dry it was better. I can be happy with the time.
24. 01. 2020 15:37 CET 7 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Maybe we should change the driver?
24. 01. 2020 15:35 CET 7 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): A couple of tenths or so, but overall it was feeling pretty good so we'll keep our pace.
24. 01. 2020 15:32 CET 7 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I don't have the best tyre choice so I had to try and be careful in this one - the car is moving a lot.
24. 01. 2020 15:31 CET 7 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I tried to push but it is not working like it should. Okay, we still need to work on our corrections of the pacenotes but we are getting that.
24. 01. 2020 15:07 CET 6 retired (38 - López José Maria / Rozada Borja): accident in SS 6
24. 01. 2020 14:35 CET 6 retired (32 - Sarrazin Stéphane / Parent Kévin): accident in SS 6
24. 01. 2020 14:34 CET 6 flash info (22 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): I don't know where the puncture happened so it's a bit frustrating but there is still a long way to go.
24. 01. 2020 14:34 CET 6 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): That's a good time. I have taken some risks with the tyres and I think it is paying off.
24. 01. 2020 14:31 CET 6 (23 - Fourmaux Adrien / Jamoul Renaud): stopped in stage, continue
24. 01. 2020 14:29 CET 6 flash info (27 - Camilli Eric / Buresi François-Xavier): I tried to be cool and did my best.
24. 01. 2020 14:29 CET 6 flash info (40 - Jocius Deividas / Varža Mindaugas): Now it is more clear. We had a good pace so it's quite okay.
24. 01. 2020 14:25 CET 6 (22 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): puncture
24. 01. 2020 14:24 CET 6 (32 - Sarrazin Stéphane / Parent Kévin): stopped in stage
24. 01. 2020 14:24 CET 6 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): We can not take any big risks so we took four super-softs. It's not an easy stage but I am getting a better feeling all the time.
24. 01. 2020 14:24 CET 6 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It's really dirty there and it was a very tricky stage. We are still too slow.
24. 01. 2020 14:23 CET 6 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): I think Ogier was very fast - we couldn't do much better than that and I am happy with my drive.
24. 01. 2020 14:17 CET 6 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I thought it was a good run but we are losing a lot again... it's a shame.
24. 01. 2020 14:17 CET 6 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): It just sucked me into the ditch in one place - not a big deal but very marginal I would say.
24. 01. 2020 14:16 CET 6 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): So far Elfyn has been faster so let's see what he is doing, but it was a much more greasy road! We're going in the right direction.
24. 01. 2020 14:16 CET 6 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Very tricky and slippery. There were a lot of surprises for us. I had to read the road a lot myself so it was tricky.
24. 01. 2020 14:16 CET 6 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): It was really muddy and I hope that the rhythm was better, but we will see later.
24. 01. 2020 12:04 CET 5 flash info (22 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): It's good in the beginning, but the second half of the stages I don't have any bite. It's a bit tricky to know the braking points but generally it was a good stage.
24. 01. 2020 12:03 CET 5 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It's a long way to go so we will try to stay focussed.
24. 01. 2020 12:01 CET 5 flash info (40 - Jocius Deividas / Varža Mindaugas): The first loop is done. The last one was quite okay, but we are looking forward to the next loop.
24. 01. 2020 11:58 CET 5 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): kay, this loop was very tricky and the next one will be muddy everywhere. I will try to push a bit more, but it is going okay.
24. 01. 2020 11:53 CET 5 (32 - Sarrazin Stéphane / Parent Kévin): stopped in stage, continue
24. 01. 2020 11:53 CET 5 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I am happy to be here without any mistakes but for sure, in these kind of stages I want to be faster as the conditions are not that difficult in the stages. It's good learning for us.
24. 01. 2020 11:49 CET 5 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): There was a lot of gravel on the road... I can not do better than that.
24. 01. 2020 11:47 CET 5 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I was in a field for more than ten-seconds. I can't do anymore - I was driving on the limit and over it as well.
24. 01. 2020 11:46 CET 5 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): It's been good - the feeling has been good in the car and the right tyre choice was made as well so thanks to the team for that. It's been great so far.
24. 01. 2020 11:45 CET 5 (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): was out of road
24. 01. 2020 11:42 CET 5 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We are almost equal at the moment but there is a long way to go. I am still learning the car and I still need to find the limit.
24. 01. 2020 11:41 CET 5 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was a better stage for me, but tricky conditions. The road is getting a lot more slippery than what the gravel crew has seen so it's really difficult.
24. 01. 2020 11:39 CET 5 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): It was quite different. It started to rain and we had soft tyres when we should have had super softs. We tried to do different to E.P to get some good experience.
24. 01. 2020 11:32 CET 5 Rain started.
24. 01. 2020 11:23 CET 5 Stage is dry.
24. 01. 2020 15:06 CET 4 (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The car left the road at high speed and after several rolls ended on a road below the rally road. Both occupants exited the vehicle on their own and were reportedly free of serious injuries. They were examined by the Doctor of Automobile Club of Monaco, who arrived at the scene at 10:09. Then the Dragon helicopter, which arrived on site at 10:34 and departed at 10:36 for Gap Hospital, evacuated them. On their arrival at 11:04, the crew TANAK Ott (driver) and JARVEOJA Martin (co-driver) was taken over by the medical team of the Emergency Department where further examinations were done. The medical status is comforting but as a matter of precaution and because of the strength of the impact, the doctors have decided to keep the crew under observation until Saturday morning.
24. 01. 2020 14:26 CET 4 retired (59 - Dizier Grégory / Dizier Sophie): retired after SS 4
24. 01. 2020 12:14 CET 4 retired (97 - Villy Ronald / Villy Jonathan): retired in SS 4
24. 01. 2020 11:36 CET 4 (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Hyundai report that Tänak and Järveoja were both able to exit the car on their own after the incident. They have been taken to hospital for precautionary medical checks, as is standard procedure following a crash of this nature.
24. 01. 2020 10:37 CET 4 flash info (22 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): It's the same as the previous stage - I struggled a bit with the brakes and finding the right braking point. This is a tricky stage, so losing 10-seconds is not too bad - I didn't take any risks.
24. 01. 2020 10:37 CET 4 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I felt good in the car this morning and I'm still feeling good.
24. 01. 2020 10:37 CET 4 flash info (27 - Camilli Eric / Buresi François-Xavier): It's not so bad but my steering is completely on the left side! I thought I had a puncture so I didn't push but it turns out I have no puncture. I have no damage so I don't know.
24. 01. 2020 10:32 CET 4 flash info (40 - Jocius Deividas / Varža Mindaugas): It's a lot of learning! We are doing a lot of things with the car and we aren't looking at the end result.
24. 01. 2020 10:29 CET 4 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): It was a very tricky stage and the high-speed sections were very challenging. I enjoyed it a lot.
24. 01. 2020 10:27 CET 4 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): The conditions in this one were quite okay. I was still going quite steady but now the time compared to everybody else is much better.
24. 01. 2020 10:23 CET 4 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): I had a good stage. We had crossed tyres and I am not sure if it was the best choice for this one, but it was a very fast stage.
24. 01. 2020 10:20 CET 4 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): We are too slow but I can't do any better at the moment. We need to push hard.
24. 01. 2020 10:20 CET 4 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): The feeling was pretty okay, but not absolutely perfect. There is already some dirt being pulled out by the other cars but it's okay.
24. 01. 2020 10:20 CET 4 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): They are very clean tarmac stages at the moment so it's a bit more enjoyable. I hope Ott is okay - it was a very fast section where he went off with a big compression.
24. 01. 2020 10:15 CET 4 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I was slowed down so much in that section. I knew there was something when I saw Ott's lines so I lost quite a lot of time.
24. 01. 2020 10:05 CET 4 retired (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): accident in SS 4
24. 01. 2020 09:05 CET 4 Stage is dry.

24. 01. 2020 09:19 CET 3 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I touched a rock with my rear - I don't really understand why it damaged the rim.
24. 01. 2020 09:19 CET 3 flash info (22 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): I really tried at the beginning and then I saw Mads, so at the end I was a bit more careful. Struggling a little bit with the brakes: I didn't quite have the bite in the second half of the stage.
24. 01. 2020 09:18 CET 3 retired (34 - Scandola Umberto / D'Amore Guido): accident in SS 3
24. 01. 2020 09:11 CET 3 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): This one was tricky - okay, easier than yesterday but still not easy. I am getting more confident now and the car is working well.
24. 01. 2020 09:07 CET 3 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): We lost quite a lot of time - I was really careful and it was my first time in these kind of conditions.
24. 01. 2020 09:06 CET 3 (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): puncture
24. 01. 2020 09:04 CET 3 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It was okay considering the conditions we had - I think the time is not bad because there was a lot of dirt on the road again.
24. 01. 2020 09:02 CET 3 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It was better - clearly. It's crazy how dirty it is, so it's hard to get confidence in the pacenotes.
24. 01. 2020 09:00 CET 3 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): Obviously not so easy with very changeable grip, but everything is working well and the notes were all good so it's fine.
24. 01. 2020 08:59 CET 3 retired (44 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): accident in SS 3
24. 01. 2020 08:59 CET 3 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's okay - we had a moment where we hit a bank and after that it was hard to keep the confidence. I think the next one should be even drier.
24. 01. 2020 08:58 CET 3 (44 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): stopped in stage
24. 01. 2020 08:57 CET 3 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): On the corner where it was full of ice, I had to restart so I lost a bit there. It was more slippery than I expected and I struggled with the tyres.
24. 01. 2020 08:55 CET 3 (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): spun
24. 01. 2020 08:54 CET 3 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): There was some black ice and it was really slippery. The rhythm generally was quite okay and the car is feeling better.
24. 01. 2020 08:52 CET 3 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): That was really difficult for us. We had a lot more ice on the notes but it has been melting now, so I didn't have the confidence to push there.
24. 01. 2020 08:44 CET 3 (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): was out of road
24. 01. 2020 08:39 CET 3 Stage is dry with icy parts.
24. 01. 2020 09:06 CET 2 (23 - Fourmaux Adrien / Jamoul Renaud): puncture
23. 01. 2020 23:23 CET 2 flash info (21 - Gryazin Nikolay / Fedorov Yaroslav): All okay - just driving very safely because it is difficult. We have finished the day and that was our only target, but it's difficult.
23. 01. 2020 23:19 CET 2 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): There is a lot of support out there which is quite amazing - there is a lot of people on the stage. The car is working quite okay - the conditions are very difficult. I have not been completely happy with today but the rally is long.
23. 01. 2020 23:18 CET 2 flash info (40 - Jocius Deividas / Varža Mindaugas): It was fantastic - it's very slippery but it was fun. It's a long rally so let's see.
23. 01. 2020 23:17 CET 2 (23 - Fourmaux Adrien / Jamoul Renaud): stopped in stage, continue
23. 01. 2020 23:14 CET 2 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): It's very difficult and tricky. We survived the day but it was changing a lot! Tomorrow I will try to push a little bit more.
23. 01. 2020 23:12 CET 2 (40 - Jocius Deividas / Varža Mindaugas): stopped in stage, continue
23. 01. 2020 23:11 CET 2 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): I lost all power, so I don't know. It won't go above 50km/h.
23. 01. 2020 23:07 CET 2 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It was tricky. I was driving for the first time with this car in proper Monte conditions, so I had no idea what to expect. With the crossed tyres it was okay but we were really safe.
23. 01. 2020 23:05 CET 2 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It was really difficult - I am not sure if it was the best tyre choice but okay, we are here and we will see tomorrow.
23. 01. 2020 23:04 CET 2 (44 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): stopped in stage, continue
23. 01. 2020 23:01 CET 2 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Fine...more or less.
23. 01. 2020 22:55 CET 2 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): In some places the studs helped but in others it hampered us a lot. It was tricky - maybe we should have been a bit faster but who knows.
23. 01. 2020 22:53 CET 2 retired (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): technical problem - transmission in SS 2
23. 01. 2020 22:51 CET 2 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I don't know - we have to see what the guys are doing behind with the studded tyres. We didn't take any risks and we could have gone faster, but this is only the beginning.
23. 01. 2020 22:48 CET 2 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): They were very tricky conditions. I was trying to read the road as well as I could and not take any risks - I think we have done a good time but we have to see what Ogier does behind.
23. 01. 2020 22:46 CET 2 (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): stopped in stage
23. 01. 2020 22:46 CET 2 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I am happy to be alive! That was more of a challenge than I expected.
23. 01. 2020 22:26 CET 2 Stage should be more icy, mainly in second half.
24. 01. 2020 03:59 CET 1 retired (71 - Desmoulins Olivier / Delaplanche Vincent): didnt started to rally

23. 01. 2020 21:27 CET 1 flash info (21 - Gryazin Nikolay / Fedorov Yaroslav): I feel good. The first stage is quite slippery with a lot of cuts so it is not easy to go fast. It felt like the tyres started to overheat at the end.
23. 01. 2020 21:24 CET 1 flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was a difficult stage - I just didn't find my rhythm. I was not happy with my pacenotes and I put a lot of effort into the stage because it was so dark.
23. 01. 2020 21:19 CET 1 flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): I was careful at the beginning but I enjoyed the start.
23. 01. 2020 21:12 CET 1 (44 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): problems with water temperature
23. 01. 2020 21:11 CET 1 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It was nice - we went with the super soft tyres and I was a bit too aggressive so the tyres were heating up. A nice stage, I enjoyed the car.
23. 01. 2020 21:10 CET 1 flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): There is a lot of gravel on the road already, and some leaves, so it's very slippery.
23. 01. 2020 21:02 CET 1 (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): problems with water temperature
23. 01. 2020 21:02 CET 1 (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): problems with water temperature
23. 01. 2020 21:00 CET 1 (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): technical problems
23. 01. 2020 20:59 CET 1 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): It could have been a lot better but at least we are still here.
23. 01. 2020 20:57 CET 1 flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think it was one of the easiest stages of the weekend - it was really dry and we can expect tougher conditions in the next one. The end of the stage was better for us even though the tyres were moving a lot.
23. 01. 2020 20:54 CET 1 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was okay at the beginning. The road was very dirty so I was a bit confused sometimes as there were a lot of cuts that I didn't have in the notes. Towards the end I started to lose the tyres, but I should have better tyres for the next stage.
23. 01. 2020 20:51 CET 1 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The conditions are quite consistent. It's a tricky stage but the conditions are quite okay.
23. 01. 2020 20:40 CET 1 Stage is completely dry, temperature around 2°C.
22. 01. 2020 16:35 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (23 - Fourmaux Adrien / Jamoul Renaud): I am really happy to be here. It's a really good challenge for me to take part this season as part of the M-Sport team.
22. 01. 2020 16:35 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (22 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): For sure, there are many new things for this rally and the feeling is good. That run felt okay but for sure there are some things to get used to.
22. 01. 2020 16:35 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (21 - Gryazin Nikolay / Fedorov Yaroslav): Everything is new for me! A new car and a new time, it's not easy. We will try to do our best but we are being safe here on Shakedown. There is a lot of dirt so you have to be clean and not overshoot.
22. 01. 2020 16:29 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (20 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was a really nice start to the year and it's nice to be back in Monte-Carlo. It has been a long time since I last did this event! I look forward to the weekend and improving step by step.
22. 01. 2020 16:26 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (18 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): It's very exciting - thank you to all the team for giving me a great opportunity this year. I will try to do my best but I can not forget to gain experience for the future.
22. 01. 2020 16:23 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): A lot of work has gone into this year. It's hard to explain what it's like to drive these cars and especially to drive one here in Monte Carlo! It's been a dream since I was a child so this is really something special.
22. 01. 2020 16:23 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I feel excited for sure. It's a new car, new team and quite a big step for us but I hope it goes well.
22. 01. 2020 16:20 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (9 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): I tried to prepare as well as possible and the feeling with the car was good in the tests. You need to stay on the road with the tricky conditions and it's important to have the right tyre choices to be able to push where you can.
22. 01. 2020 16:17 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I feel really excited - I am shaking a bit to be honest! It's a new adventure but I'm like a little boy - it's very exciting.
22. 01. 2020 16:15 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): It's easier when the team is the same. I think the car is easy to drive and easy to get used to, so the gains perhaps will not be so big.
22. 01. 2020 16:12 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): Nice feeling so far - everything is working well so we're really looking forward to it.
22. 01. 2020 16:10 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (17 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think more or less every car that starts the rally should be able to win it, but it's a big point about managing the conditions this weekend.
22. 01. 2020 16:08 CET SHAKEDOWN flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I think we are very confident that we have a good team and a good car.
