Information
Date and time SS Information
12. 09. 2021 13:37 15 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I don't know. We always try to give it everything and even this weekend we didn't give up, but unfortunately no compensation for all that work. I think we deserve more to be honest because we are putting everything into it and we just get out not what we should.
12. 09. 2021 13:32 14 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I had a good stage. Quite tricky in there with very slippery sections, but I did my best. Obviously a lot of cleaning, especially towards the end, but I couldn't go any faster.
12. 09. 2021 13:29 13 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): So many places to discover - it was a hell of a stage. Towards the end, my pace notes were too optimistic so I didn't tryst anymore and I slowed down the rhythm. It's really tricky in there, in many places the grip is lower than what you can see.
12. 09. 2021 13:28 13 (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): He will start two minutes late due to spectator safety issues in the closing kilometres.
11. 09. 2021 17:44 12 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I had a good stage. In the position we are, with our goal to catch the Rally2 cars, I did a good drive. I am happy with that.
11. 09. 2021 16:27 11 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): The stage was drier than expected to be honest. I expected it to be more damp in the last part. I was on a crossed tyre choice and at the end it was overheating a little. Okay, we are here, and one more stage to go.
11. 09. 2021 12:44 10 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): Really inconsistent grip and to be honest I have no lines at all. I don't know what the guys in front are doing, but I can't see any lines and I feel like I am first on the road. I was a bit optimistic and I missed the braking and stalled.
11. 09. 2021 11:29 9 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): Lots of cleaning and a challenging stage. It's quite flowing, but not easy because you are always at high speed and the grip is quite low. I am really only focussing on trying to catch the Rally2 cars to get in the points.
11. 09. 2021 09:57 8 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): No problem with the dust, but lots of cleaning in the stage. I had to take it with the right approach. Two hard tyres on the car wasn't so good in the beginning, but towards the end it was working a bit better. I just had a clean run, and obviously making the line for the guys behind.
11. 09. 2021 09:51 7 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): The confidence was there yesterday after the problem, but this stage is a never-ending stage. Very twisty and very slow towards the end. I had to choose some hard tyres, which I think is not the best for this kind of stage.
10. 09. 2021 18:54 6 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): We had a bad day. Nothing was working - lots of problems and issues. I am really proud of the job I have done to fix the car and get it going again. I think I got a red flag from the marshal before Loubet went off. It was difficult to see with lots of spectators around. We stopped to check they were okay and they should be coming soon.
10. 09. 2021 18:49 5 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): Fix is a big word, but at least it's driveable! The pipe was broken. I was able to glue it, but still we have to refill oil every time and we couldn't do it in one. It's not easy - some electrical issues make it even more difficult.
10. 09. 2021 13:32 4 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): It's a big mess. We have a lot of technical issues from this morning, and now the power steering as well. A day to forget. We keep fighting - there are two more stages to go today and we won't give up.
10. 09. 2021 12:48 4 (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): problems with powersteering before stage
10. 09. 2021 12:28 3 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I did my best. I am not 100 per cent confident with the behaviour of the car. Sometimes I lose the rear and sometimes I lose the front. We did some changes and it felt a little bit better, but it’s not enough.
10. 09. 2021 12:24 2 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I wasn't very confident, and I was losing the rear quite a lot. I missed a bit of speed, I could feel it in the stage. We are carrying two spare wheels and it's very twisty in there and the grip is quite low, so the car was sliding quite a lot.
09. 09. 2021 17:57 1 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): We have seen a lot of different conditions during recce, but it will be a tough event for man and material. We need to keep it clean and tidy. We are looking forward for the fight and we enjoyed that stage. It's good to see the people back.
