Information
Date and time SS Information
18.02.2024 13:02 18 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It feels really good! I've been hunting this second victory for quite a while. Big thanks to my family and to Cyril Abiteboul, he brought me into the team after a very bad second half of last year. It's quite a massive contrast from that moment to now...
18.02.2024 12:02 17 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I think it was fairly ok conditions on the second pass. This is definitely the best stage of the rally. I had a nicer rhythm than earlier and was a bit faster. It's not the way I would like to drive, but it was a bit more enjoyable. So far, it's been in our control, so I'm not too stressed actually.
18.02.2024 12:02 16 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): The conditions are really enjoyable, I have to say. The grip was really good. We were crazy slow, but it's worth it.
17.02.2024 19:02 15 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Not at all - I couldn't even see Grégoire. This was enjoyable now. I really enjoyed driving this one. There were some corners where I had fun. I'm feeling good.
17.02.2024 17:02 14 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It's almost over! One to go. The day hasn't been too bad; I've been trying to save the tyres all afternoon and still be smart in terms of the pace. Let's see if we have some studs left for the last one...
17.02.2024 15:02 13 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): All under control so far,. For sure it's about tyre management. It will be really bad with the tyres. We still need them on the last one, which will be full ice. Keeping that in mind.
17.02.2024 15:02 12 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It was crazy abrasive for the tyres. In the beginning, I tried to keep some rhythm but then I realised it was too tough for the tyres so I slowed down quite a lot to try to save then.
17.02.2024 12:02 11 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Sure, it is harder mentally now. I was over-safe, but I don't know what else I should do, to be honest. The time is what it is. We are not touching the banks. The last kilometres were really messy with no grip at all. There, I was leaning on them a bit but for the other 25km, not touching.
17.02.2024 12:02 10 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I'm really sorry for Taka. He had great speed here last year, and this year maybe even better. A big shame but these things can happen. The banks can be your friend, until you use them too much. It's going to be a long two days!
17.02.2024 12:02 9 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): All ok. I was very clean on the narrow roads. I could have pushed more with using the banks but better to do it this way.
16.02.2024 19:02 8 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): For sure we need to take the confidence from today and stay concentrated for the rest of the rally. I wasn't too slow against Kalle Rovanperä in the beginning, so I'm fairly satisfied with that and in the afternoon, we used our road postion like we should.
16.02.2024 17:02 7 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It felt way too slow, but it seems we set the fastest time so it's ok. Visibility was quite poor; when you're driving at over 160km/h, it's a bit crazy when you can't see far but you need to trust the notes and that's it.
16.02.2024 16:02 6 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It's tough to understand what kind of speed you should carry. You go a couple of centimetres wrong and you're done because you can't control anything. It's not called aquaplaning - it's snowplaning! It's a very thin line in these conditons. Even if you play it safe, you can still lose it.
16.02.2024 15:02 5 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I drove smartly, but I think Grégoire [Munster - ahead of him on the road] does not really have the experience to know how to drove in these conditions so the line was fully ****ed for me! He was everywhere! For sure, that was one of the most challenging snow stages I've done.
16.02.2024 12:02 4 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): We touched a snowbank quite heavily, somewhere around the 10km mark. I saw Ott and Kalle stopped, which didn't really give me much confidence. It was quite messy; there was really no grip at all.
16.02.2024 12:02 3 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It was fairly ok. I had a clean stage with no big time loss anywhere, but at some braking points I was too early - the same problem as yesterday evening. If we can improve that, the times should be a bit better.
16.02.2024 12:02 2 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): There was one corner where I touched quite heavily. After that, I maybe drove a bit too slow. Maybe that was not a smart idea. I should have used the snowbanks instead.
15.02.2024 19:02 1 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I don't know why we lost so much, I guess it shows we do not have enough grip.
