Information
Date and time SS Information
18.02.2024 12:02 18 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): We learned a lot this weekend. There were] all kinds of conditions. Esapekka was saying on Friday they were the worst conditions he had ever seen. Then on Saturday it was much more enjoyable and a lot of experience grabbed. Thanks to the team for their hard work all weekend - I wasn't easy on them! I really hope Adrien closes the podium. I think he really deserves it for a really mature drive - great job!
18.02.2024 12:02 17 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): On the first pass, I was really hesitant. This time I thought, 'this is the last proper stage you can really enjoy driving on snow before next year', so I tried to be a bit more direct with my braking and gears but I overshot a junction and stalled. That's ok, that's why we are here, to try things out and try to improve.
18.02.2024 12:02 16 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): After yesterday in the last stage, it's difficult to find my marks again. I'm hesitating under every braking and in corner entries. It's a very fast stage where you need to commit, so it's not ideal but the only thing that matters is we have the best team of mechanics and they managed to repair everything yesterday evening so we could be here again and continue to gain experience.
17.02.2024 19:02 15 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): I just fully locked up, and I couldn't pull the handbrake so we went straight on. I just hope I didn't slow down Esapekka Lappi. Sorry for the team - that was not the goal, for sure.
17.02.2024 19:02 15 (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): accident in SS 15
17.02.2024 17:02 14 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): The grip was better than in the morning so you could push a bit more, but the tyre was getting a lot of pressure and temperature. At a certain point, the car was not turning in anymore, and I had quite a moment at high speed just because the car went straight on. Ok, that's also part of the learning.
17.02.2024 15:02 13 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): I just cannot keep the rear of the car in the line. It was already a problem before. We need to do some adjustments. I also need to do something about the power, because I went into a snowbank the stage before.
17.02.2024 15:02 12 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): I was expecting the roads to have more grip, but actually it was the oposite. The rear was always kicking out of the ruts and we went very sideways into a snowbank. There was a lot of snow coming onto the bonnet after that and a loss of power, but I hope I didn't damage too much.
17.02.2024 12:02 11 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): That was crazy fast and you need to commit a lot. There is a lot of cleaning in this one. Some of the others were carrying too much speed so the line was not always correct and there was zero grip. There was also a very big bump in middle where I almost lost the car, so it was quite a tricky stage.
17.02.2024 12:02 10 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): I think this is one of the most beautiful stages in the championship. It's so fast and enjoyable, with very fast corners in fourth or fifth gear. You just have to trust the lateral grip. We didn't have the hybrid in this one because we had such a big compression in the previous stage that it went into safety mode. Too much g-force!
17.02.2024 12:02 9 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): It's really tricky. Tänak and Rovanperä ahead really use all of the road and even more with the snowbanks, and it's difficult for me to commit. I see less where the corners are than yesterday. In some, I'm too fast, in some too slow.
16.02.2024 19:02 8 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): There was no grip at all. At the first junction I went straight, pulled the handbrake and lost quite a lot of time. It wasn't perfectly efficient. It's been a crazy day and I'm just happy we got through. The weather guys said it would be driving like Star Wars. I've never seen the movie, but now I know!
16.02.2024 17:02 7 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): We lost the window in the previous stage, so we're just trying to keep the car dry because otherwise we have fog on the windscreen. It was an attempt. I'm not sure if it was successful!
16.02.2024 16:02 6 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): It's unbelievable how difficult it is. It's like being in a ballpit when you are a child - just no grip. The time is a lot down to the road position, I think. I struggle enough in normal snow, so I have no idea what to do in these conditions! I'm just guessing all the time...
16.02.2024 15:02 5 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): It's the most difficult conditions I've ever driven in - literally no grip, with snow coming over the bonnet. It was about trying not to take any risks and just surviving. I felt so slow and still almost got stuck in snowbanks!
16.02.2024 12:02 4 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): We had to change the tyre, and I don't know if it was due to the cold or the battery, but the wheel gun was not wokring to put the nuts back on so we had to do it by hand. That cost us quite a lot of time.
16.02.2024 12:02 4 (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): puncture
16.02.2024 12:02 3 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): It's really difficult. With that much snow, the grip is very low and you see the others are making different lines. You are playing with sometimes grip, somethimes not, but it's good learning.
16.02.2024 12:02 2 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): It's difficult. Today is completely different. The temperature is much higher so it gets quite soft. That's something new and it's difficult to find a perfect line, but it's good learning.
15.02.2024 19:02 1 flash info (13 - Munster Grégoire / Louka Louis): I always ask the question at the end of the stage to Louis how the stage felt... a learning weekend, the time is not great but that is normal. I tried to be efficient, maybe too efficient so too slow. We have four passes on this stage so I will make the Red Barn Arena better for the spectators.
