Information
Date and time SS Information
07. 10. 2018 12:45 22 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I was really on th safe side, I'm a bit surprised about the time but on the otherhand I was never on the ditch. My job is just to bring the car home now and watch the battle in front of me. The next stage isn't the Power Stage so I'm just going to drive through.
07. 10. 2018 12:40 21 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I guess they are still hoping to catch Seb but I think it is not possible. Jari-Matti did a great job on the last one, a really crazy one from him. No instruction from the team to catch Seb, but I think they would be happier if I could.
07. 10. 2018 12:33 20 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): There are so many surprises on this stage, and the road is quite narrow so we followed the line from the others - sometimes in the ditch - it is impossible to keep it on the road. It will be a lot worse on the second pass, I wouldn't mind if we don't do it.
06. 10. 2018 17:02 16 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): That is not so good news with Ott. I can't keep up with Seb and with Craig. It is nice to be in the fight for sure but Seb is going too fast, I've had no chance.
06. 10. 2018 16:20 15 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I don't know what is the correct tyre choice to be honest, it was quite dry. I wasn't expecting it to be so abrasive. Ogier is crazy and he is running off the road on some of the exits. I can't take those same risks.
06. 10. 2018 13:31 14 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Yeah, I tried! At the finish line I had a nice lean on the bank - it was in the pace notes! I used the handbrake a bit and understeered into the bank slightly.
06. 10. 2018 13:00 10 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): You can use the exits if you are brave enough, but I wasn't. It is not good to be the slowest, but it is ok. These stages should suit the car but I can't use it, it seems.
05. 10. 2018 17:57 9 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I think this one. Really lucky to be here, there was a really soft inside and I got caught out and almost span.
05. 10. 2018 17:02 8 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It is getting better, but still way, way too slow. I'm not brave enough, I'm scared of the mud.
05. 10. 2018 16:00 7 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): No mistakes this time, better start definitely. The car was pretty nice now. We have changed much again, and it feels better.
05. 10. 2018 12:08 6 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): The water is coming more and more and more. There is a lot of standing water and the car is really feeling it.
05. 10. 2018 12:02 4 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It is very slippy in places. A lot of grip changes but this is Wales Rally GB. A lot of surprises in the end. This one was a bit better but it was really tough. I don't understand Ott's speed to be honest.
05. 10. 2018 11:55 3 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): The car is working, but no confidence. I cannot explain, it is just on me. It is very slippy, at least it feels, I'm just too slow.
05. 10. 2018 11:49 2 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Not a good start. I don't say anything.
