Date and time SS Information
25. 10. 2015 14:54 CET 23 Other crews will obtain notional time.
25. 10. 2015 12:56 CET 23 Stage was stopped because car st.no.1 is blocking the road.
25. 10. 2015 12:54 CET 23 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I don’t know what to say, it is just incredible, I don’t believe it. It is not the way I want to win my first WRC rally… We have been fighting hard, we struggle on the gravel and fighting hard on tarmac. It was really close before the last stage, Ogier did a mistake and we won.
25. 10. 2015 12:50 CET 23 retired (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): accident in SS 23
25. 10. 2015 12:49 CET 23 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We had a perfect run, we had a good run, if Andreas is having a better run, then respect. With the set-up I have with two spares, I cannot do a better run.
25. 10. 2015 12:47 CET 23 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I need to be really happy with the results. We tried to fight with the Volkswagens but it was very difficult. They are are a little bit in front with the performance. I am happy with my car and fourth place. Disappointed for Thierry problem in the stage before.
25. 10. 2015 12:47 CET 23 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I am very happy, I was very disappointed with my puncture on the first day. I am very pleased and very happy we came out this way and I really enjoyed the rally.
25. 10. 2015 12:47 CET 23 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Mads has been driving very well today. I made a mistake early on the 2nd stage this morning. Not a great weekend, but enough to graft out 2nd place in the manufacturer’s championship, so job done.
25. 10. 2015 12:40 CET 23 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Nice and easy to bring the car home. We'll look at the order when we get back to service. Perhaps I can stop and get a picnic somewhere? I apologise if my words earlier were a bit harsh to Thierry - it seems he had a technical problem.
25. 10. 2015 12:38 CET 23 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We can't fix it. We had to finish and take the maximum points for the championship. We are quite unlucky. I don't know what will happen with Paddon. I just have to bring back the car with the problem we have.
25. 10. 2015 12:33 CET 23 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): In the end I'm happy, I needed a good rally after so many bad ones before. At least something positive at the end of the season.
25. 10. 2015 12:29 CET 23 (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): problems with driveshaft
25. 10. 2015 12:28 CET 23 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Still a gearbox issue, second gear not working properly. That's how it is. We tried to drive nicely. On road section before the second stage before the end we heard this noise from the gearbox. Not perfect.
25. 10. 2015 12:26 CET 23 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): For sure we just planned to be safe. We could do more but we wanted to avoid mistakes and going off. The last stage was very enjoyable. Fantastic.
25. 10. 2015 12:24 CET 23 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): A massively disappointing weekend, especially after the high of Corsica. We came here wanting a lot more. The pace is there on tarmac but the off yesterday didn't help.
25. 10. 2015 12:20 CET 23 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): After yesterday I was really disappointed and not sure we could take away anything good from this event, but today we have done well on tarmac, we can see big improvements.
25. 10. 2015 15:34 CET 22 retired (123 - Stengg Wilhelm / Hofmann Benedikt): retired in SS 22
25. 10. 2015 11:47 CET 22 (39 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): puncture
25. 10. 2015 11:47 CET 22 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Happy to finish this stage to be honest. Looking at the cuts I'm not surprised there have been so many punctures. The last stage will be much cleaner.
25. 10. 2015 11:47 CET 22 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's very exciting going into the last stage. We need to keep pushing - that's the reality. There is smoke in our car, the jack was banging around in the back and some oil is burning.
25. 10. 2015 11:46 CET 22 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): A spin just after the start. I tried to push after that.
25. 10. 2015 11:46 CET 22 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The transmission broke under braking. When I came on the throttle we went off. I tried to get it back. We will try to finish like this. We will see.
25. 10. 2015 11:46 CET 22 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The transmission broke under braking. When I came on the throttle we went off. I tried to get it back. We will try to finish like this. We will see.
25. 10. 2015 11:46 CET 22 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I don't know why he's gone off. He had absolutely no reason to push. It looks like he's cocked up under braking. He just had to keep the position. Now it's made our job more difficult to fight with Citroen. Unbelievable. This is a team sport.
25. 10. 2015 11:45 CET 22 (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): was out of road
25. 10. 2015 11:45 CET 22 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We have a problem with the gearbox. We have practically lost 2nd gear. It's still there, but making a bad noise.
25. 10. 2015 11:45 CET 22 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): Really bad in the middle section with the big cuts. We were very cautious through there.
25. 10. 2015 11:44 CET 22 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Today is not what we wanted. We just can't get it right.
25. 10. 2015 11:44 CET 22 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): The feeling is really good but we have no tyres any more. We used them in the morning. The car is moving about more now. Overall a positive weekend.
25. 10. 2015 11:03 CET 22 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): Ok, but this week for us was really difficult - with the gravel and our mechanical problem yesterday.
25. 10. 2015 15:35 CET 21 retired (120 - Sans Enric / Venceslao Enric): retired after SS 21
25. 10. 2015 11:05 CET 21 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): The clutch problem is getting no worse. Some small slip in the corners, I just drive smoothly, hopefully we can get to the finish.
25. 10. 2015 11:01 CET 21 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): This one is very, very dirty, for sure punctures can happen. I'm not pushing the limits. I should be ok.
25. 10. 2015 11:01 CET 21 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): No clear impact, a small stone in a cut perhaps. Now the difference is too big, I cannot fight back.
25. 10. 2015 11:01 CET 21 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I'm enjoying the moment and the fight.
25. 10. 2015 11:01 CET 21 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): A lot of gravel in the road. We changed the setup a little to see if we can find more grip.
25. 10. 2015 11:01 CET 21 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): The objective is to keep ahead of Paddon and Neuville. I'm enjoying the driving more today.
25. 10. 2015 11:01 CET 21 (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): front right puncture
25. 10. 2015 11:00 CET 21 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Going very well. I was able to increase my speed a little bit. Nice to find some good feeling on tarmac.
25. 10. 2015 11:00 CET 21 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I'm making little changes to the set-up all the time. I feel quite good in the car now. Still more to come for sure but going in the right direction.
25. 10. 2015 11:00 CET 21 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): We tried to brake a bit harder and later, but we ended up missing a junction. We are on the limit.
25. 10. 2015 10:59 CET 21 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): I didn't enjoy on the first pass when I made a stupid mistake. The car is running without problems.
25. 10. 2015 10:59 CET 21 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Struggling with the balance of the car. We made some changes but they didn't seem to work.
25. 10. 2015 10:54 CET 21 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): The feeling is quite alright, I can't complain. Really dirty in a couple of places.
25. 10. 2015 10:54 CET 21 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): Sometimes the road is not very clean. I'll try to push some more in the next stage.
25. 10. 2015 10:53 CET 20 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): We need to push because Kremer is coming fast.
25. 10. 2015 10:50 CET 20 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): You never know. At this moment its not impossible. We will see.
25. 10. 2015 10:50 CET 20 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I'm fighting a little bit with the car because the extra spare wheel we have is making me understeer a bit. Maybe not the cleverest choice but we were in safe mode.
25. 10. 2015 10:50 CET 20 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Not really a perfect stage, not really happy but a good morning loop. Looks like we are set for an exciting repeat loop. Trying to go as fast as I can without going absolutely crazy.
25. 10. 2015 10:50 CET 20 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Our ambition is to be on the podium but I don't want to keep taking the risks. Now we try to keep this position. They are pushing hard ahead.
25. 10. 2015 10:50 CET 20 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It's all about the manufacturers points for us.
25. 10. 2015 10:50 CET 20 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I'm trying. Really enjoying it today. Very happy with the car and my driving.
25. 10. 2015 10:50 CET 20 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I have two pet hates on this rally and this stage is one of them. I find it really hard to get a good rhythm.
25. 10. 2015 10:50 CET 20 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I tried to do a good stage but it's not easy to drive the car in this one. My pace notes were ok but I was not committing in the tight corners.
25. 10. 2015 10:50 CET 20 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): I like this stage but I made too many mistakes. The balance in the car is not right and the the pace notes were too slow.
25. 10. 2015 10:49 CET 20 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): I was correcting pace notes, the corner was tightening and we go straight into the barrier. We had to reverse.
25. 10. 2015 10:40 CET 20 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It wasn't perfect for us. It'll be a great way to end the rally later.
25. 10. 2015 10:40 CET 20 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Really difficult and technical in places. Trying to work a lot on my pace notes and understand the lines.
25. 10. 2015 15:23 CET 19 retired (98 - Stengg Roland / Langthaler Stefan): retired in SS 19
25. 10. 2015 15:23 CET 19 retired (119 - Oto Florensa Roger / Ferrer Corbeto Elisabeth): retired in SS 19
25. 10. 2015 15:23 CET 19 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): I saw him on the stage with the bonnet open. Not a crash. We do our best now.
25. 10. 2015 15:22 CET 19 retired (48 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): retired in SS 19
25. 10. 2015 15:22 CET 19 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I'm not in this position to take risks. This was the worst stage today for the chance of punctures so I took it easy.
25. 10. 2015 15:22 CET 19 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Andreas is driving well. We have two spares and it's affecting the balance, making the car understeer a little.
25. 10. 2015 15:22 CET 19 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I enjoyed it. I did the best I could with the experience I have here but I expect Jari-Matti to be quicker here.
25. 10. 2015 15:21 CET 19 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Not so bad but a lot of cuts and I didn't want to risk putting my tyres in there.
25. 10. 2015 15:21 CET 19 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I had a spin. I had to stop and reverse and then I stalled. It cost us about 10 seconds. The corner just tightened up on us. Rather than trying to risk it I pulled the handbrake and spun us around.
25. 10. 2015 15:21 CET 19 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Very good rhythm. The most fantastic stage of the rally.
25. 10. 2015 15:21 CET 19 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): A little mistake near the beginning and I spun the car. I put a new tyre on the front and locked the wheel under braking, maybe the tyre wasn't warm. After that maybe I didn't commit enough. We will continue.
25. 10. 2015 15:21 CET 19 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It was good. I slowed a little in the middle section, it was rough and easy to break a rim or something. Otherwise good. The car feels really nice to drive.
25. 10. 2015 15:20 CET 19 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): Good balance, I prefer the cleaner roads where you can pick a racing line.
25. 10. 2015 15:20 CET 19 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Struggling for confidence with the front of the car today. I don't know why.
25. 10. 2015 15:20 CET 19 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): A proper stage. Really enjoyable. I'm keeping it steady and clean, trying to get the Tarmac feeling right.
25. 10. 2015 15:20 CET 19 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): Not bad. My first time here and I tried to push. No mistakes but not easy.
25. 10. 2015 15:17 CET 18 retired (90 - Ptaszek Hubert / Kozdroń Kamil): accident in SS 18
25. 10. 2015 15:16 CET 18 retired (82 - Crugnola Andrea / Ferrara Michele): retired in SS 18
25. 10. 2015 15:16 CET 18 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): I will do my best today. Whatever it costs, it will cost.
25. 10. 2015 15:16 CET 18 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I hope just to get to the finish - I have the same problem with the slipping clutch and diff. Coming out of the corners it's like a front-wheel drive car.
25. 10. 2015 15:15 CET 18 flash info (44 - Tidemand Pontus / Axelsson Emil): We drive safe. That's what we are here to do.
25. 10. 2015 15:15 CET 18 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Some big cuts near the end there. Very dirty. We can afford to be careful. I have two spares. On this next one I have to be extra careful.
25. 10. 2015 15:15 CET 18 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I was very careful in the dirty cuts. It's an exciting fight.
25. 10. 2015 15:14 CET 18 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Good start, a bit careful in places. Not perfect but okay. I've not given up on the fight with Jari-Matti.
25. 10. 2015 15:14 CET 18 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We try to push. I lost a little time in one corner when we got on some loose gravel.
25. 10. 2015 15:14 CET 18 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): We have to manage the gap. Tricky in here, a bit of gravel pulled out that I wasn't expecting.
25. 10. 2015 15:14 CET 18 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I did a good stage. I'll do my best. He can try.
25. 10. 2015 15:14 CET 18 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I watched a lot of on-board footage yesterday and have more things to try today. It might mean taking a step backwards to move forwards.
25. 10. 2015 15:13 CET 18 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We will try. The points are important in the championship fight for Hyundai.
25. 10. 2015 10:41 CET 18 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Some vibration from the car, came suddenly on the straight, we have to check it.
25. 10. 2015 10:40 CET 18 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Ok, good wake-up.
25. 10. 2015 15:07 CET 17 retired (63 - Della Casa Federico / Pozzi Domenico): retired in SS 17
25. 10. 2015 01:45 CET 17 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): It will be tough rally, but I will do my best tomorrow to keep this position. The car is working very well, I just need to change my mind.
25. 10. 2015 01:44 CET 17 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It has been a good day, but this stage I did not enjoy as the clutch is slipping a lot.
25. 10. 2015 01:44 CET 17 flash info (44 - Tidemand Pontus / Axelsson Emil): Really enjoy this rally. Nice stage and lot of people.
25. 10. 2015 01:43 CET 17 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Driving with three brakes and here we have no handbrake, so it was a miracle we only have to reverse once! We fix what we have to and tomorrow we learn more. We are happy to be here and tomorrow we try.
25. 10. 2015 01:42 CET 17 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): I want to push more, that is the only part I am not satisfied with. The problem is you do not want to do something stupid.
25. 10. 2015 01:42 CET 17 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): I like these stages, you are enjoying and some good times, not bad at all. Before the start of this stage we hear some noise, but we are near the service.
25. 10. 2015 01:42 CET 17 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Was difficult, but we try. Was difficult to fight, but tomorrow is a long day, a new day. We will try. The stages are not bad tomorrow. We will see.
25. 10. 2015 01:41 CET 17 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Even with the issues a good step forward. There is still a lot more to come and especially when the new car comes next year.
25. 10. 2015 01:41 CET 17 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Very tricky, it has been more tricky than last year. A small mistake ion there. We haven’t hit the sweet spot with the set-up on the car today, but hopefully we can work on it tonight and get it for tomorrow.
25. 10. 2015 01:40 CET 17 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We are all fighting hard. I struggle a bit with the settings through the day. Everybody is pushing, it is nice. We have to try, it is just about the confidence and the pace notes through the first pass.
25. 10. 2015 01:39 CET 17 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It has been a good day. I stall the car in the first junction, every second is important and to waste seconds in a stupid stage like this…
25. 10. 2015 01:38 CET 17 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It has been a much better day today than yesterday. I am happy enough with my day. Starting to get into that tarmac groove. I will for sure try to chase Latvala.
25. 10. 2015 01:38 CET 17 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The speed has been there, for sure this morning was not going the way I wanted, with the bad feeling with the brakes. I know the performance and the speed is there. This time I think I was a little bit unlucky as the brakes were not there and it was confusing my driving. For tomorrow everything needs to be working well.
25. 10. 2015 01:36 CET 17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It has been really fun. The feeling was great, the car was really perfect today. I took it a little bit note easy on the dirty places. A rally, you can lose it easily, 80 kilometres to come.
25. 10. 2015 15:09 CET 16 retired (79 - Suárez José António / Carrera Cándido): retired after SS 16
25. 10. 2015 15:06 CET 16 retired (74 - Solans Nil / Ibañez Miguel): retired in SS 16
25. 10. 2015 15:05 CET 16 retired (76 - Carchat Joan / Ribeiro Claudi): retired in SS 16
25. 10. 2015 15:05 CET 16 flash info (48 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): A great day for us. Some small problems with the clutch and the rear-diff but the car is working very well.
25. 10. 2015 01:35 CET 16 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It has been a great rally for us. The car is more or less working very well. It was quite difficult this stage, a lot of cuts.
25. 10. 2015 01:34 CET 16 flash info (44 - Tidemand Pontus / Axelsson Emil): It has been really great. Some part is really good and I am really careful. I progress all the time and keep going like this. I can go quickly if we need to do it.
25. 10. 2015 01:34 CET 16 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We have no rear right to brake. There was a cut and in the cut we clip the edge of the road and we had to change the rear right tyre.
25. 10. 2015 01:32 CET 16 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It was good. The feeling was not bad, but I am not pushing so much like on the stages before. Today was quite good.
25. 10. 2015 00:30 CET 16 (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): puncture
25. 10. 2015 00:30 CET 16 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I'm trying my best. The rally is still very long. We need to try and stay in touch.
25. 10. 2015 00:30 CET 16 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Without the punctures we could be in a very different position. Over-driving a little in there. We need to hit the reset button tonight before tomorrow's stages.
25. 10. 2015 00:30 CET 16 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I've been playing about with the car and the settings today but I haven't been able to find the sweet spot.
25. 10. 2015 00:30 CET 16 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): When you ignore the Volkswagens not so bad. The balance of the car is better now.
25. 10. 2015 00:30 CET 16 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I really enjoyed it. The stage is flowing all the way to the end. We lost a lot of time but I'm happy with my driving.
25. 10. 2015 00:30 CET 16 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Jari-Matti did a very good job in here I must say. It's not easy for me to go faster in the corners because then I get more understeer. Of course I want to fight but he's a good driver.
25. 10. 2015 00:30 CET 16 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): This is my favourite stage. The car is like a race car and this is like a circuit. After the stress earlier everything is working better now. It's a good fightback.
25. 10. 2015 00:30 CET 16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): A good feeling. As soon as it's a clean road I'm fine, but I'm still taking it carefully in the cuts. No risks.
25. 10. 2015 15:01 CET 15 retired (78 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): puncture after SS 15
25. 10. 2015 15:01 CET 15 flash info (78 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): We have two punctures and one spare. We're done for the day.
25. 10. 2015 14:59 CET 15 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): We went off the road in the last section. No damage.
25. 10. 2015 01:31 CET 15 flash info (44 - Tidemand Pontus / Axelsson Emil): We keep going, no risk. Some parts of this stage I am happy with my driving. Some parts I back off.
25. 10. 2015 01:30 CET 15 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): The car is working well, we change a little bit the set-up.
25. 10. 2015 01:30 CET 15 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): All ok, we have only three brakes. The last stage, the last section I don’t know what happen, I touch the brakes and we go sideways… The car is braking only with three wheels.
25. 10. 2015 01:29 CET 15 (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): went of the road in SS15
25. 10. 2015 01:27 CET 15 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Not bad. I am trying to go as fast as possible. Not pushing for maximum.
25. 10. 2015 00:20 CET 15 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Very difficult. We are here for a fight. Maybe I can give some more, but not much.
25. 10. 2015 00:20 CET 15 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): It happened right at the start, we cut a corner and damaged the rim.
25. 10. 2015 00:20 CET 15 (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): puncture
25. 10. 2015 00:20 CET 15 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It's not the objective to fight with Mads. The Hyundai's are our target. Normally I'm happy with my set-up but here were are constantly changing it. That's not like me.
25. 10. 2015 00:20 CET 15 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I try to work on the settings all the time. I think we are going in the right way. We have stiffened the set-up to try and find more lateral grip.
25. 10. 2015 00:20 CET 15 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I tried my best at least. I've felt I've done two good stages after service. It feels like this is our speed.
25. 10. 2015 00:20 CET 15 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It was alright. We had a puncture after 1km on the first pass here so I couldn't push as hard as I wanted.
25. 10. 2015 00:20 CET 15 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was alright. We had a puncture after 1 km on the first pass here so I couldn't push as hard as I wanted.
25. 10. 2015 00:20 CET 15 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): A clean drive. A bit too cautious near the end. I'm relaxed but still concentrated. The rally is going well but I still have to finish.
25. 10. 2015 14:54 CET 14 retired (124 - Marquina Albert / Darder Oscar): retired in SS 14
25. 10. 2015 14:29 CET 14 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): The car is working really well. I hope it will work on the next stage.
25. 10. 2015 14:28 CET 14 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I'm on the limit. No more to give.
25. 10. 2015 14:27 CET 14 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Kris has taken a bit out of us here but we'll keep trying to catch Mads. We want to try and get some points out of them.
25. 10. 2015 14:27 CET 14 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It's a pity we have to test during a rally.
25. 10. 2015 14:27 CET 14 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I enjoyed a lot. The car is working ok but I'm sliding too much. I think the tyres are getting too hot. That's when we lose the consistency.
25. 10. 2015 14:27 CET 14 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I was very happy with my driving. Driving to the limit of the car and a couple of seconds quicker than before.
25. 10. 2015 14:27 CET 14 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Struggling a bit with understeer but this was the best stage of the rally for me.
25. 10. 2015 14:26 CET 14 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's getting exciting now. I might be attacking too hard in the corners. I know I can improve on the stages to come.
25. 10. 2015 14:26 CET 14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): A good stage for me. Very clean. No chance to avoid the cuts this time. Happy with my car.
25. 10. 2015 14:24 CET 13 (58 - Folb Terry / Le Floch Franck): problems with powersteering
25. 10. 2015 14:24 CET 13 flash info (52 - Tempestini Simone / Chiarcossi Matteo): We had a puncture and the jack was in tarmac mode and I could not change the tyre easily.
25. 10. 2015 14:23 CET 13 flash info (71 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): The throttle is stuck open. We have to turn the power off every time we want to brake.
25. 10. 2015 01:22 CET 13 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): We lose really a lot of confidence. We lose a lot of time in the morning, I don’t know why, the car is working well, the tyre is working well. This afternoon I hope will be better.
25. 10. 2015 01:22 CET 13 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Luckily we can continue (after power steering problem). I try to enjoy every stage, I try to different clicks for every stage.
25. 10. 2015 01:21 CET 13 flash info (44 - Tidemand Pontus / Axelsson Emil): No killer driving, but it is ok. I need to get the experience from this event.
25. 10. 2015 01:20 CET 13 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): All ok, no big issues, good for us. This stage we struggle quite a lot, but all in all it is quite good.
25. 10. 2015 01:19 CET 13 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): This morning was good. The car is too aggressive and we are losing the grip. I think it is too cold for the tyres. We have to think about for this afternoon to make it not so aggressive.
25. 10. 2015 01:17 CET 13 retired (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): accident in SS 13
25. 10. 2015 00:02 CET 13 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I was hoping to catch up some places today on tarmac. This was a nice stage, I was really careful.
25. 10. 2015 00:02 CET 13 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We have to fight for second place. That's all we can do. Now I have a good feeling. A nice pace. Enjoying the driving.
25. 10. 2015 00:02 CET 13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): A great loop. We were pushing hard this morning to make a difference. When Latvala had a puncture the gap became bigger, so it's not the same level of attack. I'm enjoying the driving.
25. 10. 2015 14:25 CET 12 retired (97 - Nicolas Jose Alberto / Recalt Miguel): retired after SS 12
25. 10. 2015 14:23 CET 12 (52 - Tempestini Simone / Chiarcossi Matteo): puncture
24. 10. 2015 12:52 CET 12 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I am really happy that we can continue. We manage to do it. I would like to come a bit closer to the first place.
24. 10. 2015 12:50 CET 12 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): It is not easy, there is a lot of good thing with the car but still learning.
24. 10. 2015 12:50 CET 12 flash info (44 - Tidemand Pontus / Axelsson Emil): We are here and no mistake. No risk. It is ok.
24. 10. 2015 12:49 CET 12 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I have been fighting all morning with the brakes. I got them right here and attacked. My mistake though, I cut in a corner and hit concrete. I broke the tyre or wheel straight away. We drove 10 km like this. The podium is the target now.
24. 10. 2015 12:49 CET 12 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): We have quite much vibration in the car, in the fast corners it is not nice. It is a little bit strange. We have a long road section so I hope we can fix it.
24. 10. 2015 12:49 CET 12 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It is very difficult, faster and faster. Very dirty the stage now, we have a lot of understeer. We try to do something in the car but we cannot do nothing. We change the ride height a little bit.
24. 10. 2015 12:48 CET 12 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): We made a little bit of change to the set-up and it was a bit more comfortable. It is as much as I can do for the moment.
24. 10. 2015 12:47 CET 12 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We make some changes on the car and we go the right way.
24. 10. 2015 12:46 CET 12 (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): puncture
24. 10. 2015 12:45 CET 12 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): All going well with the car.

24. 10. 2015 13:30 CET 11 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I thought I had a puncture for a few corners - that knocked my confidence at the beginning.
24. 10. 2015 12:52 CET 11 (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): had a power steering problem
24. 10. 2015 12:44 CET 11 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Tanak hit a barrier. I tried to push really hard.
24. 10. 2015 12:42 CET 11 (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): stopped in stage
24. 10. 2015 12:41 CET 11 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I hit the barrier. (still has problems with understeer)
24. 10. 2015 12:40 CET 11 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Not good at all. I had so much understeer.
24. 10. 2015 12:39 CET 11 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Ok, but then I got a little bit more careful.
24. 10. 2015 12:38 CET 11 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I managed to do it a little bit better. It is not on the level where it should be. I don't have a chance. There is air in the system but we didn't have enough time on the road section to get it out.

25. 10. 2015 13:22 CET 10 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): I tried my best. I pushed as hard as possible - that's not so easy for me after Corsica.
24. 10. 2015 13:25 CET 10 retired (82 - Crugnola Andrea / Ferrara Michele): retired in SS 10
24. 10. 2015 12:21 CET 10 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): We hit a small stone on the inside of a corner. I didn't see it on the recce. We've driven for three kilometres like this.
24. 10. 2015 11:16 CET 10 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Ok, but I think it is too cold for our tyres. We have more gravel on the road so we lose with our road position.
24. 10. 2015 11:15 CET 10 retired (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): technical problem - brakes before SS 10
24. 10. 2015 11:14 CET 10 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Really nice stage, sharp corners. The car is working well, the tyres are good. I try to get use to the car as fast as possible.
24. 10. 2015 11:13 CET 10 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We are understeering a lot...
24. 10. 2015 11:12 CET 10 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Not perfectly happy with my rhythm. I can't seem to get the front of the car to turn in. We have to try something.
24. 10. 2015 11:12 CET 10 (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): front left puncture
24. 10. 2015 11:12 CET 10 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): My notes were a little bit too safe in places, did not carry enough speed with the car, but it got better.
24. 10. 2015 11:11 CET 10 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Not really happy, understeering in the very tight corners.
24. 10. 2015 11:09 CET 10 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I have brake problems. I can´t drive with the brakes like this, I have no chance today with the brakes like this.
24. 10. 2015 11:08 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Very twisty stage. Bertelli was in the road. I had to slow down.

23. 10. 2015 23:58 CET 9 retired (90 - Ptaszek Hubert / Kozdroń Kamil): retired after SS 9

23. 10. 2015 18:17 CET 9 flash info (49 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I completely broke a damper today. After service I was not too far away, but on these rough stages the car was bouncing like a pogo stick. I just need a bit of luck - it's just horrific, isn't it?
23. 10. 2015 18:17 CET 9 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I like these stage a lot. The car is working well today - thanks to the team for that.
23. 10. 2015 18:14 CET 9 flash info (50 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): Bad day for us. Maybe five punctures? One was down to me, the others I don't know. All I can do now is complete this rally.
23. 10. 2015 18:13 CET 9 flash info (48 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): An engine problem all day. A long day. I'm looking forward to getting to service.
23. 10. 2015 18:05 CET 9 flash info (44 - Tidemand Pontus / Axelsson Emil): A slow one puncture - it happened two or three kilometres before the finish. A good day though, for sure Sweden is my favourite rally but Spain is my second.
23. 10. 2015 18:04 CET 9 (44 - Tidemand Pontus / Axelsson Emil): puncture
23. 10. 2015 18:03 CET 9 flash info (40 - Al-Kuwari Abdulaziz / Clarke Marshall): I took it easy because I didn't want to break the car. No risks, we are 10 minutes off the pace and I want to get to tomorrow's Tarmac stages for the experience.
23. 10. 2015 18:03 CET 9 flash info (39 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): Small mistake in the first afternoon stage cost us a lot of time. I touched a stone and broke a wheel rim.
23. 10. 2015 18:02 CET 9 flash info (42 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): A few problems today but I'm keeping my eye on the dark red car of Nasser. So far everything is still open.
23. 10. 2015 18:02 CET 9 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): We finished the day. We want a good result here. Let's see tomorrow.
23. 10. 2015 17:49 CET 9 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): I have a puncture. It was a difficult day for us on the gravel.
23. 10. 2015 17:49 CET 9 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We got stuck in 3rd gear… The pace was good this morning. The road position help us, but we are small team.
23. 10. 2015 17:49 CET 9 (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): puncture
23. 10. 2015 17:45 CET 9 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It happened a few kilometers before the finish. I tried my best to save the car, there were so many impacts, so many sharp stones. I wanted to save the car for the tarmac roads tomorrow.
23. 10. 2015 17:45 CET 9 (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): puncture
23. 10. 2015 17:40 CET 9 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Today has been a difficult day. Of course we want to challenge the Volkswagens here. We will try our best tomorrow.
23. 10. 2015 17:39 CET 9 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): I lost the rear tyres on the tarmac section. There was really no chance to go faster after that. But we've had a good day today. We have shown again that we have good pace on gravel.
23. 10. 2015 17:34 CET 9 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): This stage was an improvement on the morning but it's not a stage I enjoy. This morning was alright but I was never really comfortable. The car never felt right all afternoon.
23. 10. 2015 17:28 CET 9 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Particularly rough. It was much worse than the previous stages which came as a bit of a surprise. It looks like we are going to have some decent weather tomorrow.
23. 10. 2015 17:26 CET 9 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It hasn't been a great day me but we changed a few settings for this last stage and they have given me some encouragement for tomorrow.
23. 10. 2015 17:26 CET 9 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We had a strange feeling in the last 5km but overall it was not such a bad day. We have to say thanks to the organisers for the three minutes gaps to reduce the dust.
23. 10. 2015 17:23 CET 9 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I tried, but I struggled. I think the front-left suspension strut is broken. It gave no support to that corner. I had to be careful all the way through.
23. 10. 2015 17:19 CET 9 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It has been better and better with each stage. Not perfect, but I'm happy with this stage.
23. 10. 2015 17:19 CET 9 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Seb did very well. There were so many cuts in there, so much stuff on the road, I couldn't drive like I did earlier. A few small mistakes early on, but I couldn't have done much better. We are on the pace, much better that last year, so anything is still possible.
23. 10. 2015 17:10 CET 9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I tried for sure. We wanted to make a difference, but this tyre wear is not enough.
23. 10. 2015 17:02 CET 8 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): We had a puncture from the beginning of the stage and we drove on it all the way through.
23. 10. 2015 17:02 CET 8 (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): puncture
23. 10. 2015 16:57 CET 8 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): It was not so bad. I have some problem for change the gear.
23. 10. 2015 16:57 CET 8 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We had another puncture on the previous stage. I'm just driving and trying to enjoy it. Rallies are about setting good times and avoiding trouble.
23. 10. 2015 16:49 CET 8 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Not really good, some mistakes, I brake too late and miss the points for the junctions. Okay the next one is the real stage, this is just the warm up.
23. 10. 2015 16:46 CET 8 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I try to do my best, we are not far from the leaders. Now I think the stage will be more difficult for the tyres. I take a full hard tyres.
23. 10. 2015 16:41 CET 8 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): We have just been doing our best all the day and just keep doing it. So far the afternoon loop has been quite nice. Just keep pushing and see where we are after the day.
23. 10. 2015 16:39 CET 8 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Everybody is managing the tyres at the moment, the next stage is going to be critical. Something does not feel right at the rear of the car, it keeps moving around a lot and a strange knocking noise.
23. 10. 2015 16:38 CET 8 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The front tyres should be good, the rears have had a hard loop. We hope that will help us in the long stage.
23. 10. 2015 16:38 CET 8 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): This stage wasn’t so bad, it really cleaned a lot and there was like a concrete base and a lot of grip.
23. 10. 2015 16:30 CET 8 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was ok, a bit more confidence. Working in the right way now. Maybe not the best tyre management this afternoon. I have one badly worn on the front. Maybe six tyres would have been a better idea.
23. 10. 2015 16:21 CET 8 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is a good feeling going on. I am enjoying the driving, the car feels good. You enjoy these moments when the car goes like you think.
23. 10. 2015 16:20 CET 8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I have to be patient. I'm looking forward to the long stage, but it will be difficult to make much time there - I expect Jari-Matti will be right behind.
23. 10. 2015 17:01 CET 7 retired (43 - Ketomaa Jari / Lindström Kaj): retired in SS 7
23. 10. 2015 16:56 CET 7 (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): puncture
23. 10. 2015 16:51 CET 7 (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): technical problem - handbrake after SS 7
23. 10. 2015 16:29 CET 7 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I had a very good stage this morning, now I have some tyres with less mileage so hopefully they are strong enough to get through the stage. We mixed the tyres around a bit, putting worn ones on here to save the good ones for the long stage.
23. 10. 2015 16:29 CET 7 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I made a mistake in a left-hander. I lost one or two seconds. I still can't find the perfect stage.
23. 10. 2015 16:19 CET 7 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): We push s hard as we can. I have been happy today with the feeling, the feeling has been good. We have always known that we have good speed on gravel.
23. 10. 2015 16:19 CET 7 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): No problems, trying to manage the tyres. We have two used tyres on for these first ones. We were always going to lose time on these.
23. 10. 2015 16:19 CET 7 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I think I am a bit careful in places. I was reasonably smooth but the time is not great. We just have to keep at it and see what we can do.
23. 10. 2015 16:19 CET 7 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): More grip, but it's still tricky if you get the rear tyres off line. I'm trying to save tyres. Not feeling the love today but okay, we have to get through it.
23. 10. 2015 16:09 CET 7 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We work a bit on the ride height, but the grip is better now. I struggle with the differential on the rear, I cannot change the pre-load, it feels like it is pushing from the rear.
23. 10. 2015 16:08 CET 7 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It is going quite nicely. Quite tricky conditions in the afternoon, but I think we are doing a good job. A few mistakes in there.
23. 10. 2015 16:08 CET 7 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I'm trying to save my tyres as much as I can. This was an okay stage. Not perfect but clever driving.
23. 10. 2015 16:08 CET 7 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was a good stage, nice feeling to drive on this stage and the grip was quite high. Happy with everything.
23. 10. 2015 16:08 CET 7 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): All good. Much more grip that before. We had bad luck on the long stage, but that's how it is. We try to enjoy this day and look forward to tomorrow's tarmac.
23. 10. 2015 18:03 CET 6 flash info (39 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): I touched a stone and broke a wheel rim.
23. 10. 2015 18:01 CET 6 (39 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): damaged wheel
23. 10. 2015 17:01 CET 6 retired (108 - Bresolin Edoardo / Pollet Rudy): retired in SS 6
23. 10. 2015 17:01 CET 6 retired (106 - De Mévius Ghislain / Jalet Johan): retired in SS 6
23. 10. 2015 16:21 CET 6 retired (71 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): retired in SS 6
23. 10. 2015 15:27 CET 6 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): All good. Much more grip that before. We had bad luck on the long stage, but that's how it is. We try to enjoy this day and look forward to tomorrow's tarmac.
23. 10. 2015 15:27 CET 6 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): It is better with the harder tyres, there is less movement in the car. When you go off the line you are on very loose gravel.
23. 10. 2015 15:22 CET 6 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Better than this morning but the surface is still difficult to read. We made some changes to the car and it's better, with more grip at the rear. The intercom is working too.
23. 10. 2015 15:20 CET 6 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was not so bad, Tanak is pushing really hard. We lose tyres in the front, not so bad.
23. 10. 2015 15:20 CET 6 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): The car is driving very nicely. It was a nice, clean run, but there were some nasty impacts kicking back through the steering.
23. 10. 2015 15:19 CET 6 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): More rutted than I thought it would be and a lot harder in the compressions. We broke the windscreen in there, the car was bouncing around at lot.
23. 10. 2015 15:19 CET 6 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was alright, a few places where I went a little wide though.
23. 10. 2015 15:19 CET 6 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): This one was new for everybody. Just keep going today, it’s not perfect but I have to get through today.
23. 10. 2015 15:18 CET 6 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): This stage was ok, the car is working a bit better in the slippery conditions. I thought the turbo pipe was gone, no power just for a few seconds then the power came back. Towards the end of the stage it was working properly again, we will have to investigate.
23. 10. 2015 15:18 CET 6 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Not quick enough I think. Quite good stage but not like this morning. I will try to push more to take advantage of the grip.
23. 10. 2015 15:18 CET 6 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It’s working fine now. Trying to take care for the tyres, it is going to be a tough afternoon, I think I drove quite clever.
23. 10. 2015 15:17 CET 6 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): A completely different approach to this morning. I had some attack. I was not thinking too much about my tyres, I have two spares.
23. 10. 2015 15:17 CET 6 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It is going to be a different job this afternoon, especially for tyres. I did not push maximum in here, thinking about tyres.
23. 10. 2015 18:44 CET 5 retired (86 - Membrado Josep Maria / Vilamala Jordi): retired after SS 5
23. 10. 2015 17:29 CET 5 retired (79 - Suárez José António / Carrera Cándido): technical problem - powersteering after SS 5

23. 10. 2015 13:52 CET 5 (49 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): problems with suspension
23. 10. 2015 13:52 CET 5 flash info (50 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): A terrible morning. After only one kilometre we hit a small rock on the line and we broke the brakes. It's finished for us.
23. 10. 2015 13:51 CET 5 (50 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): puncture
23. 10. 2015 13:50 CET 5 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): The car is working well. Maybe sliding too much at the rear. We lost some time here in Maurin's dust - he stopped to change a puncture.
23. 10. 2015 13:50 CET 5 flash info (44 - Tidemand Pontus / Axelsson Emil): I'm really enjoying it. I'm feeling no pressure and the times are quite quick. Perfect.
23. 10. 2015 13:50 CET 5 flash info (40 - Al-Kuwari Abdulaziz / Clarke Marshall): Very, very bad, we have something wrong with the setup. It's almost undriveable.
23. 10. 2015 13:19 CET 5 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): I went into fast right corner and had massive oversteer and hit the bank. We couldn’t put the wheel on the hub. Here again I got a puncture and I don’t know where.
23. 10. 2015 13:19 CET 5 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): I think I have a problem with the rear diff. I think I lose a lot of time.
23. 10. 2015 13:11 CET 5 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): I enjoyed that stage.
23. 10. 2015 13:11 CET 5 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Pretty horrible, I had some troubles in the beginning of the stage, it was always going out of the line. Really strange why it was behaving like that. It was really sliding a lot and a lot of wheel spin. Compared to the first three stage it was completely different.
23. 10. 2015 13:11 CET 5 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We overheated the brakes on the tarmac and the surface was extremely dirty. Lots of gravel, and big stones too, it was easy to break the suspension and it will be worse on the repeat.
23. 10. 2015 12:59 CET 5 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Quite surprised as I made quite a lot of pacenote changes. We pushed hard and that is what we have to do. The tarmac section was really dirty.
23. 10. 2015 12:58 CET 5 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I have always struggled with it the stage, for sure this is the cleanest run we have had through it. It is the same every year we come here, the Volkswagens seem to be able to look after their tyres and that is important on a long stage like this.
23. 10. 2015 12:58 CET 5 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The feeling was ok, did not quite get into it on the second half of the stage.
23. 10. 2015 12:53 CET 5 (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): stopped in stage, continue
23. 10. 2015 12:52 CET 5 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I just noticed the wing flapping. The tarmac section in here with all the cuts they filled with loose gravel. A better rhythm for me. I'm sorry for my team-mate - he has been on fire this morning.
23. 10. 2015 12:52 CET 5 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I stalled the car twice and the car was way too low. I feel I have broken the car, it was bottoming all the time. Horrible.
23. 10. 2015 12:52 CET 5 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I have no idea, I think it was a slow puncture. I had a good run and suddenly I start to feel a slow puncture. We drove 13km on the puncture.
23. 10. 2015 12:51 CET 5 (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): puncture
23. 10. 2015 12:44 CET 5 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I lost the brakes for many kilometres. They came back later but I couldn't trust them. We'll go and bleed them now.
23. 10. 2015 12:43 CET 5 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Towards the end it started to get quite difficult with the tyres but I think we managed it quite well. I drove completely differently this time to last year - the car setup is changed and my approach to the corners is a lot more brave.
23. 10. 2015 12:36 CET 5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I struggled a lot with the grip - especially near the end. I thought at the end my tyres were gone but in fact they were ok.
23. 10. 2015 15:21 CET 4 retired (97 - Nicolas Jose Alberto / Recalt Miguel): retired after SS 4
23. 10. 2015 12:36 CET 4 flash info (42 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): All fine now. Maybe it's not wise to have a full attack on the next stage but if I get a good feeling I will push.
23. 10. 2015 12:35 CET 4 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): Three good stages done but it's not easy to drive for the first time here in this car. I'm sure we will learn more on the next stage.
23. 10. 2015 12:28 CET 4 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): I tried to push but my time is not so good.
23. 10. 2015 12:28 CET 4 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): A good start but in one slow speed corner we clipped the front-right wheel and now I have a strange noise. We have to go and check.
23. 10. 2015 12:28 CET 4 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): We had an intercom problem on the previous stage, now I have to listen very carefully to hear my co-driver. Luckily I remember some of these corners from last year - even if they are in the opposite direction. With no service today it's not easy.
23. 10. 2015 12:27 CET 4 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I didn't do very well on the fast section in the middle of the stage. I was expecting to find more stones in the road. I'm surprised to see Tanak's time - he's very fast.
23. 10. 2015 12:27 CET 4 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): I am just pushing quite hard and that is what we have to do, that is the only strategy.
23. 10. 2015 12:07 CET 4 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Not bad, difficult to drive in these conditions when it is s so slippery. It is not easy. I think this next stage is going to be the big one. We are changing between the hards and the softs. It is a long day and we will see how we end up.
23. 10. 2015 12:07 CET 4 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Not quite as good as the others. A bit scrappy in places. I'm looking forward to the longer stage - it'll be nice to get our teeth into that.
23. 10. 2015 12:06 CET 4 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I found a better rhythm in here, but it's difficult to fight at the front when you don't know the stages. I missed the chance to learn these ones last year so I have to do that this time.
23. 10. 2015 12:06 CET 4 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Not so bad, I think Mads is faster. I am quite happy with my time, it is ok. We have the good tyres for the next stage.
23. 10. 2015 12:06 CET 4 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It has been a great start, really enjoying the stages, pushing very hard.
23. 10. 2015 11:52 CET 4 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It was a bit better than the previous stage, but I am not happy with my driving this morning, I have been too careful, not getting into that attacking rhythm.
23. 10. 2015 11:51 CET 4 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was alright, some places I was a little bit tight, but I can improve for the next one. The tyres are ok, no problem with the tyres.
23. 10. 2015 13:52 CET 3 retired (107 - Van Den Brand Mats / Wydaeghe Martijn): retired in SS 3
23. 10. 2015 11:51 CET 3 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): The feeling is getting better. Difficult to find a smooth rhythm but we are improving.
23. 10. 2015 11:50 CET 3 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I'm pleased. The balance is right. The road position is helping but it's not easy to keep it in the lines.
23. 10. 2015 11:50 CET 3 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I was a bit steady at the start. It was tricky, quite loose in some places. It’s okay. It is more comfortable, it is not perfect, but it is a step forward from where we were in Australia. It is feeling better
23. 10. 2015 11:50 CET 3 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): For me I have only ever done these stage once, so I have no experience. Slippery, I am just learning.
23. 10. 2015 11:50 CET 3 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The beginning of the stage was not so good, the end was better. We are moving a bit too much in the suspension. At the beginning of the stage it was quite slippy and when you make one mistake you lose the confidence.
23. 10. 2015 11:49 CET 3 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I pushed very hard in the beginning. I struggle a little bit towards the end with my tyres, they overheat.
23. 10. 2015 11:49 CET 3 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It is cleaning for sure. I am not finding the perfect rhythm. I need to find that fighting spirit into every corner.
23. 10. 2015 11:23 CET 3 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I did a little bit of changes with the setup, but also with the mind. I try to push, more for the driving. The braking points and the way you attack through the corners, that is where it is coming from.
23. 10. 2015 11:22 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): A real challenge, but we always knew that. I expected this would be better than the first, but it was difficult. I did my best. I could not have done any better.
23. 10. 2015 12:30 CET 2 retired (94 - Della Casa Lorenzo / Salvetti Riccardo): retired in SS 2
23. 10. 2015 12:29 CET 2 retired (117 - De Mevius Guillaume / Brion Geoffrey): retired in SS 2
23. 10. 2015 11:20 CET 2 retired (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Granai Lorenzo): accident in SS 2
23. 10. 2015 11:19 CET 2 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): It was not so bad. The car is new for me and my feel with the car is not so good.
23. 10. 2015 11:19 CET 2 (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Granai Lorenzo): rolled
23. 10. 2015 11:19 CET 2 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We had a few issues, it is difficult to get a clean stage. I am locking all four wheels with the handling. We went wide on a corner and I thought I had a puncture, but it was just slippery.
23. 10. 2015 11:19 CET 2 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): Trying to get the feeling back.
23. 10. 2015 10:48 CET 2 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Clean, no dust, but we had the hard tyre and really bad grip. Difficult to stay on the line, and to hold the line. I expected this stage to be horrible.
23. 10. 2015 10:46 CET 2 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The road was more clean. We were a little bit out of the line in some places and it was very slippery. The car is moving a lot in the rear.
23. 10. 2015 10:45 CET 2 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Grip is changing quite a bit and very hard to get a smooth rhythm. The tyre choice was good, we have a good start for the race.
23. 10. 2015 10:45 CET 2 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): It is amazingly slippery, it is very very lose in the line. The road’s going to keep cleaning a little bit so we will see what the guys behind are going to do.
23. 10. 2015 10:45 CET 2 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Not so bad. Quite difficult to read the road and judge the grip.
23. 10. 2015 10:45 CET 2 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Trying to find a nice rhythm on these stages that are quite technical. Quite slippy, I have to find my own rhythm.
23. 10. 2015 10:44 CET 2 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Mads was very quick. For me it was ok, but we are too soft at the rear, there is too much movement. We have to adjust the settings a bit.
23. 10. 2015 10:26 CET 2 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I was pushing hard and had quite a good rhythm, I was happy with that stage. A lot of bad places where you have dust but you can still go flat out.
23. 10. 2015 10:23 CET 2 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Not easy to see much in this dust. For me the three minute gap is not enough
23. 10. 2015 10:20 CET 2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I know I'll lose time here with the road sweeping.
23. 10. 2015 10:09 CET 1 retired (86 - Membrado Josep Maria / Vilamala Jordi): retired in SS 1
22. 10. 2015 22:41 CET 1 retired (82 - Crugnola Andrea / Ferrara Michele): technical problem - electric before SS 1
22. 10. 2015 20:28 CET 1 flash info (49 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): The gremlins are back. That stupid pop-off valve is giving us problems again.
22. 10. 2015 20:27 CET 1 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): One stupid mistake around a hay bale but otherwise a really good time for us. No problems. We try to build our confidence tomorrow.
22. 10. 2015 20:27 CET 1 flash info (50 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): I want to win again here but the start is not good. Not a good feeling on the first corner with the hard tyre. The real beginning is tomorrow.
22. 10. 2015 20:27 CET 1 flash info (48 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): We have a good car setup. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's stages.
22. 10. 2015 20:26 CET 1 retired (40 - Al-Kuwari Abdulaziz / Clarke Marshall): technical problem - powersteering before SS 1
22. 10. 2015 20:26 CET 1 flash info (44 - Tidemand Pontus / Axelsson Emil): It's difficult to drive in this sort of half-light.
22. 10. 2015 20:25 CET 1 retired (31 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): health problems before start
22. 10. 2015 20:25 CET 1 flash info (43 - Ketomaa Jari / Lindström Kaj): It's great to be back. Not an easy start, I tried my best, but I was maybe a bit too excited near the beginning. A few small mistakes.
22. 10. 2015 20:25 CET 1 flash info (39 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): A good stage. Not so bad. For us, it is important to finish here. A top three would be good for us.
22. 10. 2015 20:24 CET 1 flash info (42 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I'm absolutely happy. I tried to save my tyres. Ok, Nasser has a different setup, but for me it's a perfect start.
22. 10. 2015 20:24 CET 1 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): We took the decision to use tarmac dampers, even though we had never tested it, and it worked really well with the gravel tyres! We can change them in 10 minutes tomorrow.
22. 10. 2015 20:24 CET 1 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's good to start this way but I remember in Corsica we started like this and then it didn't go so well! The real start is tomorrow. I'm happy though, it was a clean drive. Now I'm looking forward to tomorrow. I'm going to go for it.
22. 10. 2015 20:23 CET 1 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): A good drive for me, we have saved some tyres for tomorrow.
22. 10. 2015 20:23 CET 1 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We had a mistake on one of the donut hay bales. I couldn't get the car shifted into first until half way round.
22. 10. 2015 20:23 CET 1 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I didn't scrub my tyres so much, and I knew the others would do that more, but even so the time is a bit of a disappointment.
22. 10. 2015 20:22 CET 1 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Everybody scrubbed their tyres. I'm happy with my time. Last year Volkswagen eclipsed our times by about 4 s.
22. 10. 2015 20:22 CET 1 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Not a perfect one. I didn't scrub my tyres like I did last year. I braked too late for the first corner and then I made a mistake at a hairpin. So not perfect, but I saved some tyres for tomorrow.
22. 10. 2015 20:22 CET 1 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Neuville has done an amazing time. 2.6 s off that is not perfect but it's not so bad. Tomorrow we will do some proper stages. I'm really looking forward to it.
22. 10. 2015 20:21 CET 1 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had two soft and two hard tyres, split left and right, but I had a problem with the handbrake and locked the wheels a couple of times. I think the guys behind will be quicker.
22. 10. 2015 20:21 CET 1 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It's my first time here and this is a tricky stage. A few surprises but a clean run. Now I'm really looking forward to tomorrow.
22. 10. 2015 20:21 CET 1 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Big concrete walls take no prisoners. Cold brakes and tyres almost caught us out but overall no problems.
22. 10. 2015 20:20 CET 1 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We have something wrong. For the last three or four hundred metres we have no power - like no anti-lag.
22. 10. 2015 20:20 CET 1 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): I tried to enjoy it, but made two mistakes on the first two corners, I missed the braking points, but the rest was good.
22. 10. 2015 20:20 CET 1 flash info (15 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): I really enjoyed that. Last year on the first corner here I made a mistake so this time I took it very cautiously.
22. 10. 2015 20:19 CET 1 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Granai Lorenzo): I had a problem with the downshifts. I couldn't find first gear at the roundabouts.
22. 10. 2015 20:19 CET 1 flash info (12 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): Difficult but this is all for the spectators. Lots of donuts - it was a lot of fun.
22. 10. 2015 14:13 CET 1 Start of stage will be 4 minutes earlier.
