04. 10. 2014 09:28 CET 9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was good, today everything is fine, but now with 9-minutes delay it is difficult to hope anything, but we try to keep a rhythm.

04. 10. 2014 09:10 CET 8 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was very fast, I like it but is very fast downhill. Grip was quite good, but it was still a bit slippy coming to the chicanes in the mid section.
04. 10. 2014 09:08 CET 8 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I was very careful in the beginning of the stage, too careful. On the downhill section I tried to catch a bit of time and I am happy with that.
04. 10. 2014 09:07 CET 8 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It is my first time to do this stage in three years. A little bit humid on the braking on the chicane towards the finish. There is more mud and gravel being pulled out with very car, but I am happy.
04. 10. 2014 09:05 CET 8 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We have really good grip. You can go faster and faster all the time. The car is better than yesterday. The people are pushing all the time and there are places I could go faster. The balance of the car is good so I am happy.
04. 10. 2014 09:05 CET 8 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Quite a nice opening stage, very enjoyable. Maybe a little bit difficult to find the limit, A little bit difficult to judge with all the shiny stuff surface. Many places I brake and I understand that it was necessary.
04. 10. 2014 09:01 CET 8 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): I had some hesitation, the grip was a lot better than I was expecting, I could have been a lot braver. It could have been better.

04. 10. 2014 08:55 CET 8 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Really inside the car is great, we are enjoying it. But we are losing time, I still trying something on the fast corners. The rest I brake late, but we are still losing.
04. 10. 2014 08:55 CET 8 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I made some changes overnight and they seem to be positive, I like the balance of the car. On the whole it is a good feeling.
04. 10. 2014 08:52 CET 8 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I have lost mirror. Maybe a chicane to something, I did not feel anything. Not very happy, I am fighting with the car, it seems quite bumpy, I do not feel well at all. It is horrible to be honest, I do not know what we can change.
04. 10. 2014 08:50 CET 8 flash info (11 - Kuipers Dennis / Buysmans Robin): Quite good, nice stage, flowing.
04. 10. 2014 08:49 CET 8 flash info (22 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): Difficult for the first one ,it is very fast. We have made some adjustment on the car and we learn the setup. We try to push as the car is good.
04. 10. 2014 08:49 CET 8 flash info (12 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): It is new brake pads, much more better driving second on the road, much more clean. I am happy it is not so bad.
04. 10. 2014 08:49 CET 8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was still quite humid, I did not expect and I was quite cautious on this black top. I have to try to make this day useful for the future.

03. 10. 2014 20:50 CET 7 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): We have to try and consolidate our position we have now. Time and time again, we are just that little bit shy. I am very happy with my day.
03. 10. 2014 20:44 CET 7 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Difficult for the podium, but we try to continue like this.
03. 10. 2014 20:42 CET 7 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Its a beautiful event, the stages we have done today have been really great. I am looking forward to the stages tomorrow. Every metre I drive on tarmac is helping.

03. 10. 2014 20:27 CET 7 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): This stage is just the wasting of the time. Just get ready for tomorrow and try to improve. The feeling is good and we are enjoying, but the times are not good.
03. 10. 2014 20:22 CET 7 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): On the whole the day has been pretty good. We have struggled in a few little areas, but we can work on those overnight. Tomorrow we will just build on what we have done today.
03. 10. 2014 20:17 CET 7 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): At the end it was quite ok this afternoon, a bit unlucky this morning. We want to enjoy, we want to continue, a lot to learn. We want to get back in the points, we want to finish on strong place.
03. 10. 2014 20:12 CET 7 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I had the problem this morning and then another damper broken this afternoon. I guess that is how it is and now I just have to focus on the power stage.

03. 10. 2014 20:11 CET 7 Start of stage was delayed for 6 minutes.

03. 10. 2014 16:18 CET 6 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): With things like problem before first service, there is nothing we can do about them, we can learn a lot from this weekend. We are enjoying and continuing to push.
03. 10. 2014 16:12 CET 6 flash info (11 - Kuipers Dennis / Buysmans Robin): We try, but we would like to go faster but it is difficult.
03. 10. 2014 16:12 CET 6 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): It was good stage, previous stage we have not good stage, I lost bit of confidence, we have small issue with pace notes. We reset completely and go as if nothing happen for this stage. It has been good stage for us.
03. 10. 2014 16:10 CET 6 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Now it is getting better and better, we try to change small set-up in the car and it is better in this stage.

03. 10. 2014 16:08 CET 6 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I thought I had a problem wit the car in the last stage, here it was not so bad. Good day so far, I could not have done much more today.
03. 10. 2014 16:01 CET 6 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I could not drive any faster, not possible. When something is not right you get disappointed.
03. 10. 2014 15:59 CET 6 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It is much better, we are happy to be back on the road and we try to work on the car to find a better balance and work on the style.
03. 10. 2014 15:59 CET 6 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): Morning was really difficult but now the afternoon was a lot better. Some of the posts are not there like they were on the recce so they start to cut and the roads are a little bit dirty. In general the car is a little bit stiffer and the balance is a lot more better now.
03. 10. 2014 15:56 CET 6 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Its been good day. This time of Latvala is crazy, this is madness. I am happy with the drive, it was just that Jari-Matti was insanely quick! I never felt so comfortable in the Polo on tarmac before.
03. 10. 2014 15:56 CET 6 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): My favourite stage, I could do this tomorrow two more times. It is a good position, I am enjoying and the car feels good, but long way to go still.

03. 10. 2014 15:41 CET 5 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was ok in most places, not fantastic but on the whole okay. We were lucky in one place, a spectator had put a bollard right a cross the line.
03. 10. 2014 15:37 CET 5 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): It was better, but it was not the stage for us. The felling was not so good and we had a spin on the hairpin we went slightly off from the road. I could not get in the right direction so I had to reverse.
03. 10. 2014 15:37 CET 5 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): In the middle of the stage and at the end we have understeer. I am happy as the time was ok.
03. 10. 2014 15:36 CET 5 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): We have to manage the from wheels, we are getting a lot of understeering.
03. 10. 2014 15:36 CET 5 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It worked well, the time is similar as in the morning. Nice stage. We did well, but the time should be better.
03. 10. 2014 15:35 CET 5 (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): spun
03. 10. 2014 15:29 CET 5 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I have a strange feeling with the car, not completely wrong but on a few sections I was just losing the front. It is a small feeling and I could not find the rhythm and there was something not right. On left handers I could not get the drive. Something in the differential, it is not broke, just some play. I may be wrong.
03. 10. 2014 15:28 CET 5 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): We have problems with car. We will see if we can find it.
03. 10. 2014 15:24 CET 5 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): This stage was okay, I am not fully confident with the car, we get some understeer from the mid section of the stage. We have to work on the balance of the car. The car is ok, we have sometime some small issue with the power but really really small.
03. 10. 2014 15:22 CET 5 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): It is a lot better, much better. Sometimes a bit too aggressive for this tyre and it starts to overheat. A lot better than in the morning.
03. 10. 2014 15:22 CET 5 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): For us just a clean drive. I am happy with my driving, clean stage for me.
03. 10. 2014 15:19 CET 5 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We had a good run. I think it was a little bit difficult, there were sections where there was good grip, but there were sections were there was dust and dirt on the road so it was quite difficult. Sometime you have a cut with dirt on the road and sometimes you have good grip. Really you have to have good concentration.
03. 10. 2014 15:18 CET 5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Just drive, unfortunately we have another problem this afternoon so not so fast. On previous stage we had a broken front left damper. I cannot lose anymore.
03. 10. 2014 15:39 CET 4 retired (88 - De Ridder Guillaume / Declerck Kurt): retired in SS 4
03. 10. 2014 14:36 CET 4 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Now the car is going a well. We had a difficult stage in there, I did not have a good feeling, the car is sliding a lot. Struggling a little bit with grip in there.
03. 10. 2014 14:36 CET 4 flash info (11 - Kuipers Dennis / Buysmans Robin): It went very well, much better than this morning. We have a better feeling.
03. 10. 2014 14:32 CET 4 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): It was not so good, we change quite a bit the setup but now we get quite a bit of understeer. I think I have to make some changes.
03. 10. 2014 14:31 CET 4 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We get a little bit understeer all the time, we lost time in the hairpin. It is a terrible time.
03. 10. 2014 14:31 CET 4 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): It was ok, the car is a bit more stable. But we have a big problem with the steering, but we have to manage it.
03. 10. 2014 14:30 CET 4 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Now we have the hard tyres and time is one second slower, it was quite ok, but we can feel it more on the next stage, the long one.
03. 10. 2014 14:25 CET 4 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It was ok, nothing special, quite good stage.
03. 10. 2014 14:24 CET 4 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Car is fixed, so we are happy to be back. We try to set some good times and try to get use to the handling of the car with the new tyres. This morning it was a turbo problem and we have to change the turbo.
03. 10. 2014 14:24 CET 4 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): Little bit slippy on one junction, just a bit wide. I have a little bit more confidence with the tyres.
03. 10. 2014 14:24 CET 4 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Clean stage for us, a little it slippy second time through. I am in a good rhythm.
03. 10. 2014 14:23 CET 4 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Lot of rubber on the tarmac now. We were completely sideways on the last junction. I'm sure someone will go straight on there.
03. 10. 2014 14:23 CET 4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Everything is working well now - a little bit too late. Only a test now and trying to get some pleasure. The only target now is the Power Stage.
03. 10. 2014 13:54 CET 3 (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Penalty 100 seconds for later arrival into TC 3A (problems with battery).

03. 10. 2014 11:04 CET 3 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): It has been not easy morning. We have gone through stages quite smoothly. The pace notes are different as the grip level is completely different. The tyres were working very nicely here.
03. 10. 2014 10:56 CET 3 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was ok. I lost a little bit time in some places, but I try to do the best is possible and try not to make a mistake.
03. 10. 2014 10:56 CET 3 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): Car was too much moving so it was difficult for me to be confident. But it is not so bad, we have to improve for sure.
03. 10. 2014 10:52 CET 3 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): I am quite happy with the driving. Soft compound tyre was not working so bad, so we did not lose so much time. Now we need to make the car harder and see what it will bring.
03. 10. 2014 10:52 CET 3 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We got a warning light on dashboard, so we dont need to hang around.
03. 10. 2014 10:51 CET 3 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Lot of changes to the stage for sure. Quite tricky a few places, some unexpected situations. Not so bad, still enjoyable stage. I am definitely feeling better, we are very comfortable at the moment. It is a good start for me and we can still improve a lot.
03. 10. 2014 10:51 CET 3 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): In here I thought I had a good rhythm but it was a very slow time on a short stage.
03. 10. 2014 10:51 CET 3 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We don’t know, we check everything and everything looks fine. We have difficulty getting up the hills. We lose a lot of time in 9 kilometres.
03. 10. 2014 10:51 CET 3 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): It was really tricky, some big stones which they have used to block the roads have been moved. Car is moving so much, I am struggling to have a good rhythm. It’s tricky.
03. 10. 2014 10:50 CET 3 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Its been good morning. This was not so good for me I did not get a good rhythm. I am happy with the morning. Really enjoyable, I am smiling while I am driving.
03. 10. 2014 10:50 CET 3 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was a good stage finally, I was not happy after the long one.
03. 10. 2014 10:50 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I guess it is with the shifting with the car, a lot of engine cuts and then I lost power.
03. 10. 2014 10:48 CET 3 (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): problems with engine
03. 10. 2014 11:38 CET 2 retired (73 - Pereira Armando / Duval Guillaume): retired after SS 2

03. 10. 2014 10:24 CET 2 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was ok, at the end I felt happy with my time. I work a lot pushing hard. Difficult with these tyres to get the confidence.
03. 10. 2014 10:24 CET 2 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): It was not very good, I am not very happy with my handling, the car is moving. The road is a bit more dirty.
03. 10. 2014 10:18 CET 2 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Struggling with grip, the car is moving around so much. Pretty dodgy out there.
03. 10. 2014 10:16 CET 2 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Struggling with grip, the car is moving around so much. Pretty dodgy out there.
03. 10. 2014 10:15 CET 2 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Very nice, I had a really good speed. Sometimes you have to be careful still some gravel pulled onto the road. It is going to be a long tricky rally. The tyres are working fantastically well.
03. 10. 2014 10:15 CET 2 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Quite ok stage, no problems, quite ok rhythm. I am doing what I want to do for the moment. The tyres are working quite well, we were a bit careful on the beginning of the stage to see how the tyres are working.
03. 10. 2014 10:11 CET 2 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I have no power anymore, we have to find a solution. I had a small moment where I was stuck in a ditch.

03. 10. 2014 10:09 CET 2 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): Not so strongly, but starting to understand the tyres. The rear tyres are overheating a lot and sliding in places.
03. 10. 2014 10:08 CET 2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Big engine cut, I do not know… I try but I do not know. Possibly linked to the gears in some way. I dont know.
03. 10. 2014 10:02 CET 2 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Not easy, I do not have a very good feeling with the car. The brakes are too hard, I cannot get feeling with the brakes. The car is too soft and I do not get a feeling with the chassis. Seb Ogier has problems, I passed him.
03. 10. 2014 09:47 CET 2 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): stopped in stage, continue
03. 10. 2014 09:46 CET 2 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): spun
05. 10. 2014 12:54 CET 18 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It feels really really good. Starting this day after the mistake in Germany, I was pretty nervous. I had to learn, I had to take that lesson in Germany. We are still in the fight for the championship, that is important. It has been taking a long time to win a tarmac rally.
05. 10. 2014 12:54 CET 18 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It has been great rally for us, I have really got the feeling with the car. It feels really great to get second on tarmac. Not bad for a Norwegian.
05. 10. 2014 12:54 CET 18 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I am really happy with my weekend, I could not have done much more. If you really stick your neck out you can get within tenths to the guys from Volkswagens. If I secure my seat, I can improve and get better and work with the car.
05. 10. 2014 12:51 CET 18 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Very sorry for Kubica... I am very happy with the car and the people in the team, all the people working very hard to get a good setup in the car. We need to work a little bit more in the engine side. You can improve always, everyday, I need to work myself.
05. 10. 2014 12:42 CET 18 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): Some of the stages and loops were pretty good so we can be pretty happy. Little things to learn with the tyres, a little bit lost with the setup to start. I think Elfyn has been in a good place all weekend. It is really nice that we can fight for second place in the manufacturers title.
05. 10. 2014 12:36 CET 18 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Still quite good. Okay on the last one it was not so perfect, I had a bad noise in the car, I missed a pace note and we went off the road. I am quite pleased to be through the rally, a little bit disappointed that we have so much problems but that is how it is. It is a lot of good things and I am pleased to be at the end.
05. 10. 2014 12:34 CET 18 retired (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): accident in SS 18
05. 10. 2014 12:33 CET 18 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I think we can be pretty happy at the end of the event. We had some mechanical issues, but before this I had a 100% reliability record with the car, it was just one of those things. To be honest I am still in my learning year, I don’t want to put myself behind. On the whole it has been fairly clean for us, I think we can be happy.
05. 10. 2014 12:26 CET 18 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): It is nice to finish the rally. I cannot be happy with the final result but looking for the future it is good. I would like to drive Hyundai again.
05. 10. 2014 12:25 CET 18 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): We had a good weekend, but still this is not my favourite rally. Happy that we finish my 100th rally, something good. I hope that Spain will be better, this is my favourite rally.
05. 10. 2014 12:25 CET 18 (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): spun
05. 10. 2014 12:21 CET 18 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We had 3 hard tyres and one soft tyre on the car, not the optimum, but still we try to push. Quite good stage.
05. 10. 2014 11:24 CET 17 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is a good morning, no mistake. Second time through was a lot better than the second time through, a better feeling again. I am not thinking about the points from power stage, just want to get a time.
05. 10. 2014 11:18 CET 17 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): For me the power stage is not important at all, it is important for me to secure the second place. It is not over, still one more stage.
05. 10. 2014 11:18 CET 17 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Quite a tricky stage, you just have to check your rhythm all the time, especially when you are protecting your position. Just trying to keep everything on the straight and narrow.
05. 10. 2014 11:16 CET 17 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): All through the morning it is the same, nothing change. Try to push in this stage a little bit, but it is not easy.
05. 10. 2014 11:16 CET 17 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We have big moment in very high speed corner. There was gravel and I lost the line… Big moment. We took it safe option with soft tyres, still on gravel it does not really change. I was just caught out by this gravel in a 6th gear corner that was tightening... huge moment.
05. 10. 2014 11:11 CET 17 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): It felt pretty good, but the time is not so good. Not enough. Just concentrate on the last stage and see if we can get any points from there.
05. 10. 2014 11:09 CET 17 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It was a good run for us, no problems. I think quite a lot during the break to see how I can adapt to the setup of the car.
05. 10. 2014 11:07 CET 17 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Nice stage so no problems for us. I am trying not to have any moments, but the feeling is good and we are going as we feel.
05. 10. 2014 11:05 CET 17 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): Not Sunday driving, but no risk, the finish is the target.
05. 10. 2014 11:04 CET 17 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The stage was ok, better conditions than this morning. We are controlling trying to keep the 4 wheels in the line. We have learned a lot but still there are improvement to do. We will have to work very hard to be competitive in Spain.
05. 10. 2014 11:03 CET 17 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It is ok but it is just standard driving, we are not pushing. Nice clean stage so we enjoyed it, clean, not slippy.
05. 10. 2014 11:03 CET 17 flash info (22 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): We are looking for something, in direction there was something wrong. In the beginning of the stage the car was good, but later we had problems with handling.
05. 10. 2014 10:57 CET 17 flash info (11 - Kuipers Dennis / Buysmans Robin): We had a good run, the road was clear.
05. 10. 2014 10:56 CET 17 flash info (12 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): It looks like we have puncture in rear, but we dont have. Maybe something with suspension.
05. 10. 2014 10:56 CET 17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): The only stage we were waiting for for two days is coming, the target is to get 3 points.
05. 10. 2014 09:00 CET 16 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Towards the end of the stage it was very nice, at the beginning quite a lot of dirt in places, it was difficult to get the feeling for the road. After that I relax. I am not trying to be aggressive at the moment, I am trying to be clever. At the moment I am not thinking about the power stage.
05. 10. 2014 08:57 CET 16 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It was a clean stage for us, it is all about controlling Meeke. This morning it is all about enjoying.
05. 10. 2014 08:55 CET 16 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): We are just following the splits of the guys in front and trying to protect our position. It’s quite tricky in there.
05. 10. 2014 08:55 CET 16 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was not so bad. Some very dirty places, a lot corners on the stage were different from the recce, but a nice stage. Very fast, a lot of speed but not a lot of confidence. The car is okay, really no problem. The car move a little bit but you have grip.
05. 10. 2014 08:51 CET 16 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We did not touch anything. Here we have completely wrong tyres unfortunately. We were on 4 softs, we were expecting 10 kilometres damp but the was only 1 kilometre.
05. 10. 2014 08:49 CET 16 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): We had really mixed information from the safety crew and I am not sure we made the right tyres choice for this one, also a little bit fog on the fast section. There is only one section that is damp so the hard tyres would have been good.
05. 10. 2014 08:49 CET 16 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I cannot do anything else, it is just how it is. I have a mix of tyres, I can try to find something that works. It is a little bit more difficult today, my spare difficult is a little different and I struggle. I cannot do anything more, a different car today and I cannot do anything more.
05. 10. 2014 08:49 CET 16 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was ok. Time is not bad, lets just see what happens. It is not a steady run but I am comfortable and I feel ok, so we’ll carry on.
05. 10. 2014 08:43 CET 16 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): It was ok. It was humid and on the new tarmac it is very slippery.
05. 10. 2014 08:42 CET 16 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The fog was ok, but in the beginning it was quite slippy. Tricky many things can happen, I slow down a bit, I did not want to push on this one at all. It’s better, much better than yesterday. We have no reason to push so it is difficult for me to take it in the right rhythm.
05. 10. 2014 08:42 CET 16 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Pretty good, little pressure. We are just dying to stay on the road, sometimes we jump and a little slippy. In the fast section it was big big fog. The feeling is better but we are not pushing like yesterday.
05. 10. 2014 08:41 CET 16 flash info (22 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): We take care on the stage, we try to enjoy the second lap.
05. 10. 2014 08:35 CET 16 flash info (11 - Kuipers Dennis / Buysmans Robin): Quite quickly at the beginning, there was a big jump in the road and we jumped out of the road, we were very lucky.
05. 10. 2014 08:35 CET 16 flash info (12 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): The conditions is difficult. Many wet on the road, sometimes slippery for me.
05. 10. 2014 08:32 CET 16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): For sure a bit more rhythm to validate the notes for the power stage. There was a small mis-understanding with his tyre choice. I have three soft and three hard.
05. 10. 2014 10:15 CET 15 retired (131 - Jelsch Jérémy / Bosetti Marc): retired before SS 15
05. 10. 2014 10:14 CET 15 retired (129 - Hemmerle Philippe / Heng Sébastien): retired before SS 15

05. 10. 2014 08:08 CET 15 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is ok, got the morning started that is the main thing. I wanted to be very careful on the cuts and I do not attack on those places.
05. 10. 2014 08:06 CET 15 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): So far it is ok, just controlling on the stage to Kris. Really enjoy.
05. 10. 2014 08:05 CET 15 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I think I covered all tyre options, in here I think I was on the wrong option so I ended up backing off to save the tyres in case I needed it for later in the loop. We need Andreas or Jari to have a problem, that is the only way we will get a position.
05. 10. 2014 08:04 CET 15 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It is very good for Kubica, very fast. I am surprised. To be honest, I cannot explain, my car was not so bad in the stage and my tyres were good.
05. 10. 2014 07:59 CET 15 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We will see, everybody is using different tyres, we are trying our best to drive as fast as we can, but we will see.
05. 10. 2014 07:58 CET 15 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): It is ok but I am not so happy with the time. I am on four hards tyres.
05. 10. 2014 07:56 CET 15 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): The stage was not so bad. Difficult opening to the day, but not so bad.
05. 10. 2014 07:55 CET 15 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It is a mix tyre choice, I think it could have been better, a funny balance, but lets see for the next one.
05. 10. 2014 07:55 CET 15 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): It is not so bad. The beginning of the stage was a little bit slippery. It is a nice stage, a bit different than yesterday. We make the car softer.
05. 10. 2014 07:50 CET 15 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The stage is fully dry, some tricky places. My pace notes were a bit slow so I try to compensate. It is not perfect but it is ok.
05. 10. 2014 07:50 CET 15 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It is not cleaning, sometimes it is slippy on the braking with some stones. Bigger problem was that it was quite dark in the forest.
05. 10. 2014 07:48 CET 15 flash info (22 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): It is very dirty, is very fast, is difficult. We have soft choice with the setup. Is difficult for the moment.
05. 10. 2014 07:47 CET 15 flash info (11 - Kuipers Dennis / Buysmans Robin): It was quite wet under the trees, the car is moving a little bit with these tyres. I expect the next stage to be more wet.
05. 10. 2014 07:43 CET 15 flash info (12 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): It is ok, but a little bit narrow and little bit slippery.
05. 10. 2014 07:42 CET 15 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): This tyre combination was not what we planned but it is what we have on the car. We are not sure when the rain is coming, it may be there for the last stage, we will see.
05. 10. 2014 07:34 CET 14 retired (73 - Pereira Armando / Duval Guillaume): retired after SS 14
04. 10. 2014 18:52 CET 14 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I had a good feeling on the Mulhouse stage. I actually preferred the old lap. I am feeling good with the car. We have had the sunshine and a lot of spectators, sunshine would be nice tomorrow.
04. 10. 2014 18:49 CET 14 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Now it is to secure the second place. The rain is coming, most likely, I had rain on my test so it should be ok.
04. 10. 2014 18:47 CET 14 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): We had a problem at the end of the last stage, so we have no spare wheel. If I had a puncture I had no spare wheel to get back to Strasbourg, so I had to be very careful not to touch anything in there.
04. 10. 2014 18:39 CET 14 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Tomorrow will be very tight, today was really close. It will be good, we can do a good battle tomorrow. Tomorrow is completely new for everybody.
04. 10. 2014 18:35 CET 14 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): I am losing so much time on this kind of stage. Last year it was always very good for me those kind of stages. Tomorrow is still a long day, we will see.
04. 10. 2014 18:31 CET 14 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I did a good job, I am very happy with myself as the car is not the way it should be, I struggle with the car a lot. I am happy with rain, I am happy with sun.
04. 10. 2014 18:27 CET 14 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): It was ok, but it is always tricky when you start with cold tyres, you are not sure about the grip levels, so I am not so happy about the time. We all want fourth place and we are all going to fight for it.
04. 10. 2014 18:22 CET 14 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Its been ok, this morning was very good for us. This afternoon has been a bit more difficult, the times have not been as good as we would have hoped. We look forward to tomorrow.
04. 10. 2014 18:18 CET 14 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): It is nice to see so many people here. It looks like it is going to rain tomorrow, but we will trust our meteo crew, they will do a good job.
04. 10. 2014 18:15 CET 14 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Tomorrow can be quite interesting if the weather conditions get more difficult. It the rain is coming, as most of us expect, it will be interesting.
04. 10. 2014 18:12 CET 14 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Good day, we enjoy it, all the stages were perfect. We had some problem from the car, a strange sound from the car. I hope that we can manage our way to the service.
04. 10. 2014 18:10 CET 14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was a good day for us, we try to get the sensation and we are happy with that. The only hope in the race is the power stage tomorrow. The metro might change tonight so it might be more difficult conditions.
04. 10. 2014 20:36 CET 13 retired (76 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): retired after SS 13
04. 10. 2014 16:41 CET 13 retired (71 - Pyrame Alain / Varetz Vincent): accident in SS 13
04. 10. 2014 15:24 CET 13 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was a good stage, I had a very controlled drive not taking risks, not taking cuts. My position now there is no point to take too many risks.
04. 10. 2014 15:24 CET 13 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It’s ok a clean stage for us, find a good rhythm on this one. Tricky starting on the cold tyres but a clean stage.
04. 10. 2014 15:23 CET 13 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): We have a problem with the rear diff, there is a leak on the rear diff. There was no more oil on the rear diff. The feeling is very strange I have no stability on the rear. I have driven as fast as I can sliding around. I had to take a penalty to try to fix it.
04. 10. 2014 15:23 CET 13 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I was really happy with my run in there, a lot better than the first pass.
04. 10. 2014 15:23 CET 13 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Really nice. I try to push hard in this stage but it was very difficult. I try to do my best. Very difficult.
04. 10. 2014 15:22 CET 13 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): It is really tricky and narrow and slippy. The car started to feel a bit funny, really at the end of the stage so it did not cause problems.
04. 10. 2014 15:22 CET 13 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): It has been good loop for us, nice clean driving. In some places the bollards were gone so you could go much faster. We drove nicely but no risks as this stage was very tricky, demanding stage.
04. 10. 2014 15:21 CET 13 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): It was ok, a good stage we try to drive well, it is a bit different than the one before. The car was working quite well.
04. 10. 2014 15:21 CET 13 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It start to work well fast, we have some strange noise with the car and it was increasing with the speed, I think it is the gearbox. I am hoping we can come back to the service to repair the car.
04. 10. 2014 15:20 CET 13 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Tricky stage, relatively cold tyres, not sure what the time will be like.
04. 10. 2014 14:23 CET 13 Stage will be restarted after another zero car will go through stage.
04. 10. 2014 14:19 CET 13 Stage stopped after first five cars, bacause zero car rolled.
04. 10. 2014 14:17 CET 13 flash info (11 - Kuipers Dennis / Buysmans Robin): I was shown yellow flag on the stage and we slowed down.
04. 10. 2014 14:17 CET 13 Yellow flag on stage.
04. 10. 2014 14:11 CET 13 flash info (22 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): I find good setup and I made a good start on this one. We take some pleasure on this afternoon.
04. 10. 2014 14:10 CET 13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was ok, not as bad as we have seen it in the recce. We had good fun.

04. 10. 2014 14:06 CET 12 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We had a clean run, but I did not take any risks, if there were any cuts I take them in a safe way. We have to be really focused on the next stage now.
04. 10. 2014 14:02 CET 12 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It was ok, tried to get a rhythm, the car is a little bit too soft.
04. 10. 2014 14:00 CET 12 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I really enjoy it, a wide road from start to finish. A little gravel on a few corners. I think there may be a sating in the tail tomorrow. Everything to play for.
04. 10. 2014 13:59 CET 12 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): This stage was ok, a little it more dirty than the first one. I try to push hard, quite difficult.
04. 10. 2014 13:53 CET 12 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Nice rhythm and good information from the gravel crew.
04. 10. 2014 13:51 CET 12 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): I did not like that stage so much. The fast section on top was really dirty. I could not fight back on this one.
04. 10. 2014 13:50 CET 12 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): It was good stage, I think we are driving very nicely today. A bit more understeering but all good. It is not easy as pace of chasing drivers is very strong.
04. 10. 2014 13:46 CET 12 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): Beginning of the stage was good. I hit a big rock approximately 5 kilometres into the test. I have some vibration, but I think it is ok.
04. 10. 2014 13:42 CET 12 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It was quite better than in the morning. I feel a bit confident on the fast sections. Happy we are improving on the times.
04. 10. 2014 13:39 CET 12 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was ok, nothing spectacular to be honest. Generally the balance is okay. I think we could have pushed harder in a few places. A few tricky places, but it is not too bad.
04. 10. 2014 13:38 CET 12 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was better than this morning, I feel more comfortable now, the car is helping me a lot.
04. 10. 2014 13:36 CET 12 flash info (22 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): The road is clean, it is dry, so we try to drive well. I have a problem with the tyre after 12 kilometre. We overheat the tyres during the stage and it is a little difficult towards the end.
04. 10. 2014 13:36 CET 12 flash info (12 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): It is a little bit better than first time. More confident with car.
04. 10. 2014 13:34 CET 12 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was good stage for us, but the tyre is moving a lot and it is not a good sign for Catalunya.
04. 10. 2014 13:57 CET 11 retired (92 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): technical problem - radiator in SS 11
04. 10. 2014 13:55 CET 11 (92 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): was out of road
04. 10. 2014 13:23 CET 11 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was a good stage for us. A little bit change on the setup and the car was really good, a little bit nervous over the bumps. It is really really nice, I am enjoying this.
04. 10. 2014 13:19 CET 11 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Clean stage for us, still a little bit careful, but the car is a bit too soft.
04. 10. 2014 13:19 CET 11 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): That was nice. I was enjoying it, I did not feel like I was taking risks. Tomorrow the weather will be interesting, we will see what happens.
04. 10. 2014 13:15 CET 11 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Very fast, now the car is starting to be on the limit of the tyres.
04. 10. 2014 13:12 CET 11 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It is a nice fight, it is all quite fast, so not so easy. The stage is not so bad for me. We are using splits, but not so easy to do anything really big. You find a rhythm and try to keep to that.
04. 10. 2014 13:11 CET 11 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): It’s good, I really enjoyed. The first part was absolutely perfect, I just hope I can keep it up. I did not change anything.
04. 10. 2014 13:07 CET 11 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We have nice stage, I think I have done very good stage, but the rally is still long. Nothing extra, just a bit more pace.
04. 10. 2014 13:06 CET 11 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): I try to drive a bit faster on the second pass. We have a half spin as it was a bit jumping. Not a fantastic time. I have to understand many things and also to working on the car.
04. 10. 2014 13:06 CET 11 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It was much better, I try to leave the higher gear and concentrate on the grip on the fast corner. The feeling is that it is faster.
04. 10. 2014 12:57 CET 11 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We had good run, but I just hooked the outside wheel on the tarmac and it spun the car round, lost a few seconds but otherwise everything is ok. So far not too bad.
04. 10. 2014 12:57 CET 11 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was better, some big changes on the car, try to help turning on the rear. Towards the end I struggle with understeer. I was more confident than I have been for the past one and a half days.
04. 10. 2014 12:53 CET 11 flash info (22 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): It is still quite clean, we have good feeling now with the car. During the beginning of the stage we try to push. The feeling I think is good.
04. 10. 2014 12:50 CET 11 flash info (12 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): Second pass for me is much much better. I like, but I do not understand.
04. 10. 2014 12:50 CET 11 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We had quite a good drive. It was a nice one, I had good fun on this one.

04. 10. 2014 10:49 CET 10 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): There are sections where I know I can push, but some of the sections on the new stage I have to be careful. It was a bit demanding stage, but I have a good rhythm for driving this morning.
04. 10. 2014 10:37 CET 10 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I tried to push where I felt comfortable. I still drive a little bit careful where it is tricky. It is tempting to fight with Latvala.
04. 10. 2014 10:37 CET 10 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Quite a tricky stage, I knew Andreas and Jari are faster. I just try to consolidate my position, I knew I was braking early in a lot of places. I will just try and manage my position.
04. 10. 2014 10:35 CET 10 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I try to push hard and other guys coming really quick. We need to try to push a little bit more harder. Not easy but we will try.
04. 10. 2014 10:33 CET 10 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It’s a nice fight, swapping places all the time. For me it is nice to fight with some of the tarmac drivers. I am comfortable, really enjoying it.
04. 10. 2014 10:32 CET 10 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): I am surprised it did not feel like the last stage. I know our car is stiffer than Elfyn and Robert. I was a little bit surprised we lost so much time.
04. 10. 2014 10:32 CET 10 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): It has been good start although we had one mistake in the second stage. We hit with the rear right and we damage quite a lot the rim and the tyre, it was quite adventure to get to the end with good pace.
04. 10. 2014 10:32 CET 10 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): I have chosen some too hard springs and this morning it is much more bumpy and we are bumping a lot. Last one we make the car a bit softer but not that bad.
04. 10. 2014 10:22 CET 10 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The car was very good this morning, there were things just specific to that stage, but things we can adjust for the second pass. Very changeable conditions down towards the trees.
04. 10. 2014 10:21 CET 10 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We are changing all the time, but sometimes it is getting worse. I do not know what to do anymore. On this stage we went completely in the wrong direction with the setting. In the bumpy part the car is difficult to control and keep it in the line.
04. 10. 2014 10:21 CET 10 flash info (11 - Kuipers Dennis / Buysmans Robin): Quite well, better than yesterday, the last one was quite different from the other two. Going better and better.
04. 10. 2014 10:21 CET 10 flash info (22 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): It was good on the second stage and on the third we try something. On this one the road are clean but the grip is different at every turn. It is dry and clean now with my position. It is a new stage and I think it is difficult for everybody.
04. 10. 2014 10:21 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It is not a tough morning for me, I would have loved to have this one yesterday. The car working well, we try to have a consistent rhythm, it was a good loop for us.
04. 10. 2014 10:07 CET 10 Start is delayed for 6 minutes.
03. 10. 2014 10:46 CET 1 retired (125 - Heitzler Bernard / Dantzer Chantal): retired in SS 1
03. 10. 2014 09:47 CET 1 retired (63 - Lukács Kornél / Mesterházi Márk): accident in SS 1
03. 10. 2014 09:22 CET 1 flash info (22 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): Good for the first stage, but it is going a little bit dirty now, they cut a lot. It was a difficult road for us, the time is not so bad.
03. 10. 2014 09:20 CET 1 flash info (12 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): First stage is ok for us, sometimes a little bit slowly, a little bit slippery road.
03. 10. 2014 09:20 CET 1 flash info (11 - Kuipers Dennis / Buysmans Robin): It is quite flowing and fast. A little bit tricky with new tyre for me.
03. 10. 2014 09:14 CET 1 flash info (10 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): It was ok, too wide, a lot of uphill. We go through the stage smoothly. Very slippery, more slippery than I expected.
03. 10. 2014 09:14 CET 1 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): A little bit understeer, not really happy but it is ok.
03. 10. 2014 09:12 CET 1 flash info (20 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): It was ok, very fast stage. Not bad, quite a lot of understeering.
03. 10. 2014 09:10 CET 1 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It was ok, we choose soft tyres so we are on the limit with the tyres, so lets see if the next one will be more slippy.
03. 10. 2014 09:10 CET 1 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Its very fast and very wide, quite a good wake up call in the morning. Not a perfect tarmac stage, but not so bad for me. We have to enjoy it so long as it is a stage like this.
03. 10. 2014 09:07 CET 1 flash info (6 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I am feeling ok, but not a lot of grip in there. I am not sure that the setup was right for that short one. There was a lot of movement, quite surprised.
03. 10. 2014 09:07 CET 1 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Not so bad, this stage is like a hill climb, very fast and very wide. It is quite easy to over heat the tyres.
03. 10. 2014 09:04 CET 1 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It’s ok, it was very good, nice rhythm, like a race track. I am happy with my driving, it is beautiful stages and good conditions. Fast stage, I enjoyed the stage a lot.
03. 10. 2014 09:04 CET 1 flash info (5 - Hirvonen Mikko / Lehtinen Jarmo): Not a good start, when you make a small mistake you lose a lot of time. Now we have to wake up and start to drive.
03. 10. 2014 09:04 CET 1 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was quite a good start. I had a little feeling of understeer and I am amazed that the time was so good. The tyre is working really well, a little bit dampness, but the tyre is working well. It is so difficult, for me, I have done good work.
03. 10. 2014 09:03 CET 1 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was not perfect for us, I am not really happy with the car. The next one is really important.
03. 10. 2014 08:47 CET 1 Weather is foggy, temperature around 12, no rain.
