Information
Date and time SS Information
24. 01. 2016 12:55 16 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We have a problem - the car is in two-wheel drive and I had to change gear manually! But we are happy to be here, the first podium with the new car. Thanks to the team and I'm looking forward to the rest of the season.
24. 01. 2016 12:45 16 (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): technical problems
24. 01. 2016 11:37 15 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It wasn’t good.
24. 01. 2016 09:36 14 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We'll try and keep the pressure up but it's more important to secure the podium. We had a good stage but there was a problem with the car before the stage - something touching - we fixed it on the road section. Nothing major.
23. 01. 2016 16:20 13 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I really enjoyed driving and the car was working perfectly. We want to keep the position for the team. We continue learning the car, making improvement. I could really push on the last downhill. We did so much mileage with the car, many on the dry. The car has a lot of potential.
23. 01. 2016 14:17 12 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The tyres were not bad. We can be pleased with that and we did not lose any time to Andreas (Mikkelsen). I did not push too much as I wanted to keep it on the road. The car is working good, the balance is nice.
23. 01. 2016 12:48 11 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Maybe not the best tyre choice for this stage but for the next maybe we get some benefit. Could be a good option. I am quite happy.
23. 01. 2016 10:25 10 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Tricky, very tricky. You are driving on third gear and the engine is pushing, you cannot do anything on the snow. Some occasions you think you should switch off the car and just roll down the hill. Once you are sliding you are finished. Mikkelsen's tyre choice got him a lot of time here.
23. 01. 2016 08:50 9 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was ok actually. Tricky towards the end because the road has changed a lot since the recce. The suspension is improved. We tried a new setting to feel more comfortable in the slippery sections.
22. 01. 2016 16:45 8 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): This stage was terrible for traction. We took the wrong tyre choice this afternoon. Importantly we are still here.
22. 01. 2016 16:17 7 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I have to adjust a bit, but I am pleased. Mads is on the same tyre as me and I took 15-seconds.
22. 01. 2016 15:22 6 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We changed dampers and brakes in service, a lot of things. Much better, but on the soft tyres it was quite tricky. They worked well on the downhill, but were tricky on the rest.
22. 01. 2016 12:05 5 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We are bottoming a lot, we are jumping a lot. We try to do our best. Sometimes my pace notes are far too careful. I think we are going to make some changes on the dampers. The feeling of the car is getting better.
22. 01. 2016 11:36 4 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It is getting a bit better through understanding, we have to learn. I test 3 days on snow for this rally and I am far too soft.
22. 01. 2016 10:43 3 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The car is moving a lot.
21. 01. 2016 22:39 2 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I was very careful, too careful for sure. I don’t want to break anything. The other tarmac section I could have gone faster. But I didn't want to finish the rally on the first day. I feel like I am sometimes learning the car.
21. 01. 2016 20:43 1 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I got a lot of fog on the windscreen from the mid-stage so it was difficult to see. Dirty, the mud is coming onto the road so it is very slippery.
