Information
Date and time SS Information
17. 10. 2021 13:20 17 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): Relieved to be at the end. It was a tough weekend but we fought very hard. We had a good clean run and until near the end everything was perfect. Unfortunately lots of stress before the last stage - again. I am really disappointed about that because otherwise the weekend would have been perfect and nice, but now it isn't. I don't know what to say to be honest.
17. 10. 2021 12:22 16 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): No concerns for us. We have a good gap now and I was quite careful in there. We don't need to push for power stage points because it doesn't change anything in the championship for us.
17. 10. 2021 12:20 15 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I just had a clean, smooth run. We have to control and just try to keep the car in the middle of the road. The car was working fine in this stage and it's important to bring home a victory for the team.
17. 10. 2021 12:17 14 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I wasn't sure if it was enough. There are a lot of cuts and I am still afraid to get a puncture. I had a clean run and in the daylight it will be better.
16. 10. 2021 23:12 13 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): Obviously when everything is going the right way, it feels good and it's a pleasure to drive. It wasn't an easy day - conditions were tricky in the morning with very dirty stages. I relied on the information from my route note crew and I felt comfortable in the car. I think we set six fastest times so it's not too bad.
16. 10. 2021 23:09 12 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): It has been a good day so far. I am a little bit afraid of the cuts, so I was careful in some places. Generally I was enjoying the drive.
16. 10. 2021 23:04 10 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): It isn't easy at all, especially in this one. The road was much more dirty than the information I had. Obviously we are tenth on the road, so the conditions are changing quite a lot.
16. 10. 2021 22:54 9 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I had a good stage. I was a little more careful in this one - there were a lot of cuts and I don't want to risk the punctures. Still struggling with understeer - without that we could have been faster.
16. 10. 2021 16:40 7 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): It was a good start. Conditions are much dirtier than expected and the visibility in some places was less than before. Not so easy, but we had a good stage.
16. 10. 2021 09:27 6 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I am feeling more comfortable in the car and I am looking forward to tomorrow. On the twisty stages I could have been so much faster, but I just couldn't get the turn-in and we need to work on that. Tomorrow is a different profile - it's a bit more open so it should suit us better.
16. 10. 2021 09:22 5 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): The car was working better and we are getting in the right direction. When the road is quite dirty, you have to more smooth and stay in the line. It's less of a handicap for us and in these conditions. I was able to take more out of the car and you can immediately see it in the times.
15. 10. 2021 12:14 3 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): Understeer. I tried really hard but no way. I can't even turn.
15. 10. 2021 12:11 2 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I am trying, but I am not confident in the car. I can not push as much as I want, so we need to work on the chassis. The rhythm is there, but I lose the front basically in the middle of the corners and I had to save the car a couple of times with the handbrake.
15. 10. 2021 12:07 1 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I tried to drive fast but I was understeering all the time and I couldn't get the car turning. I couldn't keep a good line and I just had to be careful to stay in the middle of the road.
