Information
Date and time SS Information
12. 09. 2021 13:39 15 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I was not maybe the most comfortable coming here but it just showed that now everything is going well for us and we can really push hard. Big thanks to the team, everybody did a great job. We had a perfect car and also a rough rally and it was running without issues all the time. I hope at least the same speed in Finland, but let's see.
12. 09. 2021 13:34 14 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It was really difficult. We were thinking it's a bit more dry and it was really muddy in the forest. With the hard tyres at the front it was maybe the most difficult stage I have done this weekend, it didn't work at all.
12. 09. 2021 13:30 13 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I was pushing a lot. But not too much I just enjoyed the driving and I think our pace notes and everything is really well-prepared. I had a good feeling in the car and pushed quite a lot. The beginning was difficult, there was much less grip than we thought and with the hard [tyres] it was tricky.
11. 09. 2021 17:55 12 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): Of course, I am quite happy. I think we did a bit of wrong set-up choice for the afternoon. We changed something to gain a bit of protection and we lost quite a bit of traction. I was pushing here a lot, and the grip was not good. It was not easy, but at least we are at the end of the day and let's see what we can do tomorrow.
11. 09. 2021 16:30 11 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): Let's see. Not happy with this stage. It was difficult with two spare wheels - a bit more difficult than I was expecting to be honest. In the slow and narrow parts it felt a bit lazy.
11. 09. 2021 12:57 10 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I feel good. Especially when this was the hardest stage of the loop for me. At the beginning, I didn't have any pace or rhythm, so it was difficult. But after that I managed to find the rhythm a bit and I tried to save the car a bit because it's rough out there. I think this one is going to be rough second time. The first one of the loop will be quite okay, but this will be tough.
11. 09. 2021 11:42 9 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): The moment was a huge one. I have to say we were lucky to escape and that there was nothing in the ditch. It was maybe a bit too much from the pace notes, I was pushing a bit too much. I tried to be a bit more careful after that.
11. 09. 2021 09:59 8 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I am feeling good. It was a nice tyre choice, so thanks to my engineer also because he was supporting me. It was a really difficult two stages - like now when I had the hards on the front, in the mud it was tricky, but I was pushing to try and gain everything I could in the other places.
11. 09. 2021 09:54 7 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): Our tyre package was not the right one for this. In the beginning I could use the hards quite okay, but in the middle and last sections where it was really slow, I was struggling with the hards. I tried to give it a big push and the time looks good, so it's nice.
10. 09. 2021 18:51 6 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): The feeling is quite okay. Hopefully the time is good, and let's see what we can do for tomorrow. I think we need to change the set-up a bit.
10. 09. 2021 18:47 5 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): I am not surprised to be honest. I can't remember when I have been driving in this difficult conditions on a normal gravel road. The grip was so high in many places that my car just couldn't turn enough.
10. 09. 2021 13:05 4 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It's okay. Even though it's the second loop, there is quite a lot of cleaning after the small cars. I tried to follow Seb's line, but it's not so easy all the time. A clean run.
10. 09. 2021 12:28 3 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It was a bit better now. I saw the tyre wear after the first stage and I could know and manage what to do. I tried to push a bit. Let's see what we can do.
10. 09. 2021 12:25 2 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It was okay. Tricky conditions with the grip with this tyre. I still have to think how to drive with the car and the tyre and not use it too much. Let's see how the tyre wear is and see how we are.
09. 09. 2021 17:52 1 flash info (69 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): It's really nice. After a long time it’s nice to drive for the people and show what we do with the cars.
