Information
Date and time SS Information
18. 11. 2018 09:50 24 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was an incridble weekend, so many ups and so many downs. Probably more downs, but we had an amazing day today. It is tough after such a long break to get back in the car. Well I'm third-fastest in the world on this rally, so shame on them if I don't get a drive next year!
18. 11. 2018 09:37 23 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I was caught out on some mud - like everyone! I went off the road and into a tree. To be honest I though like that was it, but after that I pushed to the absolute limit.
18. 11. 2018 09:28 22 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): We have two difficult stages to go still, nothing is missed and nothing is done yet. The conditions are tricky.
17. 11. 2018 23:40 21 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): On the slippery, we changed the car to suit those conditions, the car is really sensitive and small changes make a big difference. In the dry this car is really difficult to drive with the set-up.
17. 11. 2018 22:13 20 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): That's good, I learned a bit from the first stage about the bogginess. I tried to keep it calm and just have a clean run through the stage.
17. 11. 2018 21:28 19 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was a tricky stage, I was not so happy. It was very boggy in there, not a lot you can do with the bogginess.
17. 11. 2018 07:52 15 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): The balance was not so nice, it was about surviving. Changing the balance but it is not so nice still. The conditions are so tricky, I can't even understand what I just went through. I don't know what to say.
17. 11. 2018 07:43 14 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Not at the moment, I'm trying to drive to the limit but it is just not faster at the moment. I'm just lacking balance to the car, it is very nervous and difficult to control.
17. 11. 2018 07:32 13 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It is an intense fight for sure. To be honest it is all about confidence and trying to find a good feeling with the car on the surface. It is tricky just to make everything perfect.
16. 11. 2018 23:47 11 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Just hard to match the Toyotas. Car is faster on the stage, seems like all three Toyotas are going well in there. Much lower grip. I have some new tyres, that might help this afternoon.
16. 11. 2018 22:45 10 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Now I'm not happy with my tyre choice, with what we know it was not an easy choice for sure. The car is working well but when you have a mix of tyres and two of them are not working it makes it difficult for sure.
16. 11. 2018 21:53 9 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was a pretty good stage for us, a few places we went a little bit wide. Hayden was attacking and it will be interesting to see what Mads is doing.
16. 11. 2018 05:11 6 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It's been really good. It was more challenging than I thought with the hard tyres this afternoon. I had the same car on all the stages so I could push well. It was absolutely in the plan to be leading!
16. 11. 2018 03:50 5 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Everything fine, it didn't feel completely perfect like this morning but the time is good so we must be doing something right.
16. 11. 2018 03:12 4 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): This was the stage where we would sacrifice a bit to gain later so I am pleased with that.
16. 11. 2018 05:06 3 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was very enjoyable! What can I say? It was a beautiful stage and I had a good rhythm through there, I was thinking back to Finland when I was on the start line there. I didn't do this stage last year, but the car was great, it was a good morning all in all.
16. 11. 2018 03:33 2 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): The stage is beautiful but I didn't enjoy it. I was unable to have any rhythm, I don't know why. The car was working and Torstein was doing his job on the notes, I just need to some time to get back into it again.
16. 11. 2018 03:23 1 flash info (10 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): Not a bad start, I struggled a bit in some sections with some understeering. But when it was working it was working nice, but with the two understeerings I made two mistakes in some pretty important corners.
