Information
Date and time SS Information
17.07.2022 14:07 24 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I couldn't see anything from 1km after the start due to fogged windscreen. I just tried to get to the end.
17.07.2022 12:07 23 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I have zero confidence in these conditions with the car. It's incredible. We are driving like on ice.
17.07.2022 12:07 22 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): It was okay. I really struggled to drive the car all weekend and it's very difficult to be consistent. I was trying to manage the wheelspin and save the tyres for the Power Stage.
17.07.2022 12:07 21 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I got caught in a mid-speed left-hander. I went a bit wide and lost the rear - I couldn't do anything. We need to work on the seat somehow - it completely moved and now I am sitting offset from the steering wheel!
17.07.2022 12:07 21 (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): was out of road
17.07.2022 12:07 20 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): On a junction I went a bit wide and I was a bit cautious on the last section. I really have no grip, so it's very hard to be fast.
17.07.2022 12:07 19 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): A clean stage for us. I was quite careful in there to not damage any tyres because the day is quite long with only five tyres. I am looking towards the Power Stage, but I'm not sure we are going to take a lot of points there.
16.07.2022 17:07 17 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): Quite rutted in there, but a bit more consistent than the first pass. An easy run through for us.
16.07.2022 17:07 16 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): To be honest, none of the stages I really like. In the second pass they are really rutted and it's not so much fun.
16.07.2022 14:07 14 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): We are thinking and testing different things. It felt quite okay in this stage, but when the grip is changing I lose the positioning of the car and I have to correct. It's in those places where I lose the time because I stop the speed.
16.07.2022 12:07 13 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): A clean loop for us. No real problems and we are trying to survive. Anything can happen and in the place we are, there is no reason to push. In the conditions like this it was actually quite fun in there.
16.07.2022 12:07 12 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): The crack happened this morning in service, but it's getting bigger. We had a bad stage - the car was very strange and Martijn had a lot of pain after some landings, so we had to take it careful.
16.07.2022 12:07 11 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): It was an okay stage. I went a bit hard on some corners and hit the bank here and there, but at least it was fun.
16.07.2022 12:07 10 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): The profile is a bit different in here. I felt a bit more confident despite it being a new stage, but I am missing a bit of grip now. We have to find a good compromise and carry on - we have the whole day to find a better set-up.
15.07.2022 18:07 9 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I don't know if we can change a lot. We are a bit stuck with what we have at the moment. The target is to keep close to the podium and see what happens at the front. It's part of the game.
15.07.2022 17:07 8 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): We had an okay stage and we will carry on.
15.07.2022 15:07 7 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I am watching my own rally at the moment. It's very hard to get the confidence and we are moving all around. I still have the feeling sometimes that we are driving on the limit so we still have to be careful.
15.07.2022 14:07 6 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): The conditions are tricky and I have no confidence in the car. I do not trust and I know I can not fight with the guys at the front this weekend. I have to stay clever and try to bring the car home - that's my main target.
15.07.2022 12:07 5 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I nearly spun on the first corner already and under slippery braking I have no traction. We took some steps to make the car stiffer and more precise but we went too far.
15.07.2022 12:07 4 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): We made some changes, but I was fighting a lot to keep it straight. I am struggling a lot with these dampers as well - the car is are moving a lot. We need to work on that.
15.07.2022 12:07 3 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): I don’t feel so comfortable with the rear yet. I’m driving quite clean with a good speed. and I think that’s the best approach for us at the moment. Kalle and Ott are really fast and I hope we can be in the fight with Craig.
14.07.2022 20:07 1 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn): We hope for a trouble-free event and we just want to have some fun and go as fast as possible on these beautiful roads. I have never been 100 per cent confident on these roads, but we'll see. Last year we ended up on the podium, so hopefully we can do that again.
