Information
Date and time SS Information
30. 07. 2017 13:01 25 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Yeah, I'm not sure if it will be enough to catch him, let's see what the other guys do. We were aiming to bring back more points to Seb. Even if the pace wasn't there this weekend, I have a great team behind me who are working to improve it.
30. 07. 2017 11:03 24 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): This was okay. Just smooth and tidy. No plans to take risks on the Power Stage. If we can get any points for the championship this week it's more important.
30. 07. 2017 09:31 23 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): No grip at all. I changed some settings before the stage. Three junctions in one stage!
30. 07. 2017 08:45 22 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The car is sliding but I did a normal stage. Quite enjoyable but difficult in the shade under the trees - it was difficult to read the road. Power Stage could be important.
29. 07. 2017 18:36 21 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): In the ruts the car is working better. What is possible now I don't know. The target is top five. In a rut here I hit something and bent the steering.
29. 07. 2017 17:04 20 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The car is working when there is a lot of grip. I backed off a bit after I hit a stone in the narrow section. I thought we had a puncture.
29. 07. 2017 16:30 19 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We made some changes but the road conditions are much more grippy now and the car is working better. In the slippery stages we can still lose time. I enjoyed this one, it's probably the best stage in the world.
29. 07. 2017 15:05 18 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Much more grip on the stage so the car was working quite nicely, more driveable.
29. 07. 2017 12:22 16 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I can't drive like this. I am driving fast but I am on the maximum. The car is hitting the bump stops, bouncing back after the jumps. It makes it really difficult. Our car is working on all other the rallies, which is nice, but not Finland.
29. 07. 2017 12:05 15 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I was not driving very well in here. The car is moving around, hitting the bump stops on landings. I need to stiffen the setup.
29. 07. 2017 08:25 14 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The road positions is helping but we worked on the set-up, and tried everything, but we will be not competitive this weekend.
28. 07. 2017 20:14 13 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I'm missing performance from the car. I was driving quite well apart from a couple of stages. To be honest I couldn't do more. Cleaning the road made it more difficult but definitely we don't have the speed.
28. 07. 2017 18:53 12 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We are pushing hard but the times are not what we want. There's not much we can do but continue. All is positive in terms of the championship. Tomorrow is a huge day. We might try some new damper settings tomorrow but there's not much to do. Top five would be a good result here.
28. 07. 2017 17:21 11 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The rhythm is good but I can't keep the rear in the line. Our car is just not performing enough. We are still far away. I'm doing my job.
28. 07. 2017 15:23 9 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It's okay. I try to drive fast but of course now I'm not taking the big risks. I think I'm driving well, but the times are a bit disappointing. I can't go much faster but we're not able to match the others.
28. 07. 2017 14:09 8 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): No grip, the road surface is so hard, I really struggled. Sliding a lot.
28. 07. 2017 11:01 7 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Good. I tried to push hard but obviously there was lots of gravel on the road now and the rear was sliding wide. We used every inch of the road. Our main contender [Ogier] now is out. We have to be in the top five this weekend. That's our goal.
28. 07. 2017 09:33 5 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It's ok but I'm not so happy with the car. It's moving too much up and down, it's not so nice. We try to improve. The earlier noise is okay now - just the sump guard touching.
28. 07. 2017 09:08 3 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I have the same feeling, not feeling much power. The ground is much more loose, taking power away. A better stage than before but I don't need to fight for the win here, It's the right pace for now.
28. 07. 2017 09:05 2 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I don't know. Maybe I was not committed enough. We have to go faster. We can go faster.
27. 07. 2017 20:04 1 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It's going to be a difficult event. The main thing is to enjoy it, stay in a close battle with Seb and finish ahead of him at the end.
