Information

Date and time SS Information
22. 08. 2015 09:22 CET 9 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Quite tricky stages this morning, I had a big impact quite early on in this stage. I have a big vibration on the front. I don’t think it is a puncture so I have to check.
22. 08. 2015 08:55 CET 9 flash info (44 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): My target for today is to preserve my third place. We were very careful.
22. 08. 2015 08:53 CET 9 flash info (42 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Try and keep Eric (Camilli) behind and improve our speed if we can.
22. 08. 2015 08:50 CET 9 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Today we would like to keep our position and go as fast as possible without making any stupid mistakes. I want to push as this helps me keep the concentration on the maximum and you enjoy much more the driving.
22. 08. 2015 08:48 CET 9 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): The first bit of the stage was really good, the second half we were slow on the pace notes. I have to brake better.
22. 08. 2015 08:46 CET 9 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): All good. This stage we haven’t done last year as it was done when we were retired, so we are trying to correct pace notes.
22. 08. 2015 08:42 CET 9 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): The car was not stable, not braking well. We try to stay with the cross (mixture of hard and soft compound tyres) but it is not working.
22. 08. 2015 08:41 CET 9 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Not so bad, this stage I make mistakes in some places, was not flat out all the time. I am quite happy.
22. 08. 2015 08:39 CET 9 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): On a hairpin, just touched something. Trying to focus.
22. 08. 2015 08:38 CET 9 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): He (Evans) has done a good job. I just need to go faster…
22. 08. 2015 08:34 CET 9 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Maybe we should do the whole rally on this stage! Ok, it was a bit slippy at the start, lost a bit on the brakes in some sections. It’s alright, just need to make sure we are not a one stage wonder after this.
22. 08. 2015 08:30 CET 9 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Rhythm is not a problem, just never done this stage before, a lot of high speed braking sections, I just wasn’t sure where to brake.
22. 08. 2015 08:27 CET 9 flash info I had a good stage but my brake pedal was getting very soft, I have to bleed the brake, it is strange.
22. 08. 2015 08:25 CET 9 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): We are not going flat out at all, just trying to find a clean rhythm and stay there.
22. 08. 2015 08:22 CET 9 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It was ok, I do a couple of big mistakes, in junctions and hairpins, I am not able to do a handbrake turn, very strange.
22. 08. 2015 08:17 CET 9 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We drove like this now. The car set-up is fine, just the braking seems to be a problem for me, some sections I can’t get the feeling when I should be braking.
22. 08. 2015 08:13 CET 9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): A little bit slippy in places but a clean drive.
22. 08. 2015 08:09 CET 9 The sun is shining and blue sky in Trier.
21. 08. 2015 19:07 CET 8 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I have a great feeling in the car. We are enjoying every single metre.
21. 08. 2015 19:00 CET 8 flash info (44 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): We are very happy to be in this position. We will see tomorrow how we do against Breen but he is very fast.
21. 08. 2015 18:57 CET 8 flash info (42 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Up to now the championship has been a catastrophe so I'm delighted to be here at the end of the first leg - it's the first time this has happened since Monte Carlo.
21. 08. 2015 18:56 CET 8 (24 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): Car stopped on stage with a water leak
21. 08. 2015 18:55 CET 8 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): We didn't start well but overall it haven't been a bad day. We will continue to try and improve. If we can finish in the top five I will be very happy.
21. 08. 2015 18:50 CET 8 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We went off on a corner I had changed in my notes after the first pass from a 4 to a 6. We understeered straight off. Driving this car without a screen is a new experience. I had to slow a little on the straights because there was a lot of turbulence.
21. 08. 2015 18:45 CET 8 flash info (12 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): For my first day in a WRC, it's incredible. I'm improving, but it's really difficult in the vineyard!
21. 08. 2015 18:45 CET 8 flash info (10 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): Not so clean on one hairpin. Lost feeling with the brakes in the last 2 SS - maybe it's me though.
21. 08. 2015 18:41 CET 8 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): The day started really, really well. But since the accident on SS6 I have been thinking only about getting to the finish. The team have a lot of work to do.
21. 08. 2015 18:39 CET 8 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): A few modifications and the car felt better this afternoon.
21. 08. 2015 18:37 CET 8 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): We've got to be realistic, we know our team-mates have more experience on this surface, but I don't like being behind them.
21. 08. 2015 18:35 CET 8 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It's been an okay afternoon but we've been struggling a bit with the set-up and the rhythm. It's been a long time since we've been on Tarmac.
21. 08. 2015 18:33 CET 8 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It felt a lot better in there, it's much cleaner.
21. 08. 2015 18:33 CET 8 (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): His suspension problem costs him another three minutes in the stage.
21. 08. 2015 18:28 CET 8 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It's a good day for Volkswagen.
21. 08. 2015 18:23 CET 8 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It was a little bit better. Maybe I tried to hard to soon. I need to keep patient. It's encouraging.
21. 08. 2015 18:22 CET 8 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I did not have the best feeling this afternoon but Seb has been driving well. That's it.
21. 08. 2015 18:18 CET 8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I had a great afternoon. Really good fun. It's been a long time since I've had to push so hard on tarmac. Jari-Matti is not too far behind so we have to keep on going.
21. 08. 2015 14:51 CET 8 Start of stage will be delayed for five minutes.
21. 08. 2015 18:11 CET 7 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We went off into the vines and broke the screen. We carried on but couldn't see properly so had to stop and kick it out.
21. 08. 2015 18:11 CET 7 flash info (12 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): I made one mistake and lost time in a spin at a chicane.
21. 08. 2015 18:10 CET 7 (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): his car stopped 17km into the stage
21. 08. 2015 18:09 CET 7 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I'm at maximum attack all the time. Thierry's time is very good.
21. 08. 2015 18:08 CET 7 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): After we went off we were back to full speed for four or five kilometres but then the compression strut broke. I've made a repair and I hope to get back to service.
21. 08. 2015 18:07 CET 7 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): The drive was quite okay. We caught and passed Meeke in a section with lots of cuts, so it was very dusty.
21. 08. 2015 18:07 CET 7 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): He (Meeke) pulled over, it looks like he's running with some sort of problem. For me this stage was alright. Nothing special but overall okay.
21. 08. 2015 18:06 CET 7 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Flat out. I did my best and had a few moments in there. I nearly hit a wall near the finish because we had a lot of understeer and the brakes were going. Let's see how it compares to Dani.
21. 08. 2015 18:06 CET 7 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): We hit the right-rear wheel when we slid wide on a left-hand corner. My mistake. It seems to be okay.
21. 08. 2015 18:05 CET 7 (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Meeke losing time. He's 2m50sec down on Ogier at the second split.
21. 08. 2015 18:05 CET 7 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I feel I have a good rhythm. No problems. The car is running well.
21. 08. 2015 18:03 CET 7 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): He (Ogier) had a good run. I can't really go any faster for the moment. I'm doing all I can.
21. 08. 2015 18:03 CET 7 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I drove better than this morning. Not a perfect stage, but if I manage to beat Jari-Matti here I will be pleased - normally he can't be beaten here.
21. 08. 2015 14:51 CET 7 Start of stage will be delayed for five minutes.
21. 08. 2015 16:50 CET 6 flash info (24 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): We still have the problem with the diff. I was not pushing hard, I have some very hard compound (tyres) on the rear, but the car (wheels) spin a lot, so we lose a lot.
21. 08. 2015 16:50 CET 6 flash info (12 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): This one is very slippery sometimes.
21. 08. 2015 16:46 CET 6 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Quite ok. I thought there was something wrong with Martin (Prokop) as I saw some dust.
21. 08. 2015 16:42 CET 6 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): We were out on the gravel and hit a tree and went into a field. Some spectators show us the way back and then we went off again. We had a high speed spin…
21. 08. 2015 16:38 CET 6 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): There is a lot of gravel in the stage, now is more. I am sure I cannot go with this car like Ogier. It is not only a question of speed but it is also a question of risk.
21. 08. 2015 16:27 CET 6 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I don’t know what it is about this stage but I don’t enjoy it, it doesn’t flow for me, it is quite dirty and I am struggling for confidence. Start again on the next one.
21. 08. 2015 16:26 CET 6 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Some places you have gravel and some places you don’t. Some places are quite dusty. I knew quite many places, but it is changing quite a lot. We take it a bit cautious in places.
21. 08. 2015 16:25 CET 6 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The feeling was a bit better in there, I think I was a bit careful in the gravel in there.
21. 08. 2015 16:25 CET 6 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I got caught out on a bit of gravel and slipped off into a field and had to find my way out.
21. 08. 2015 16:24 CET 6 (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): was out of road
21. 08. 2015 16:23 CET 6 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Now this one should be enough to take some time out of Sordo. It is difficult to drive smooth and clean and be on the good times.
21. 08. 2015 16:22 CET 6 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): We are trying to have a good rhythm, we are not flat out. Slowly it is getting better and each stage I am improving. It is really tricky inside there, a lot of gravel being pulled out.
21. 08. 2015 16:21 CET 6 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It was very slippery in a few places. It is quite difficult to commit in some of the places. But the feeling is getting better and I am more relaxed. We never had a problem with the car, some alarms, but nothing wrong with the car.
21. 08. 2015 16:17 CET 6 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It’s going really well in the car. I can’t go better when it is dirty. I do the best that I can do but I like it more when the tarmac is not dirty. For me the vineyard stages are a bit easier for me.
21. 08. 2015 16:16 CET 6 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Not so easy, really dirty some places, especially the beginning section. This afternoon for me the setup is better, so it is more easy to enjoy.
21. 08. 2015 14:51 CET 6 flash info Start of stage will be delayed for five minutes.
21. 08. 2015 16:29 CET 5 retired (101 - Cave Tom / Perry Craig): retired in SS 5
21. 08. 2015 15:42 CET 5 (43 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): puncture
21. 08. 2015 15:42 CET 5 (42 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): spun
21. 08. 2015 15:41 CET 5 retired (40 - Kremer Armin / Winklhofer Pirmin): technical problem before SS 5
21. 08. 2015 15:35 CET 5 flash info (24 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): We have a differential problem and we cannot change until tonight. We still have to do three stage more, the wheel is spinning a lot and we have to preserve the tyre.
21. 08. 2015 15:34 CET 5 flash info (10 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): Now we changed the gearbox and everything is fine, the car is braking when I want to brake. Better than this morning. I am happy now, I am driving a rally car now.
21. 08. 2015 15:33 CET 5 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): I was enjoying driving, trying to keep up reasonable speed without risking too much. It is quite easy to make stupid mistake.
21. 08. 2015 15:33 CET 5 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): I was pushing too hard.
21. 08. 2015 15:32 CET 5 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was not so bad, we had a few big moments in the stage, I hït the kerb and going sideways into the ditch.
21. 08. 2015 15:30 CET 5 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Better on the clean parts, the changes that have been made to the car work quite well. We changed the front diff which allows me to have a bit more confidence in the car.
21. 08. 2015 15:30 CET 5 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The handbrake is working fine now. The car is a bit more enjoyable to drive now. We will have to see what we can do to find more.
21. 08. 2015 15:29 CET 5 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): I'm happy. Yeah, pretty similar conditions to earlier. All good.
21. 08. 2015 15:28 CET 5 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It is a bit cleaner. There are some corners that are a lot more gravel, there is a bit more grip under braking on the line. I am enjoying it more.
21. 08. 2015 15:24 CET 5 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The car is working a bit better, I think I had a good stage. Maybe there was one hairpin I brake a bit late but I did not lose too much time.
21. 08. 2015 15:19 CET 5 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Everything is fine. This was my best stage so far this rally. It was nice to have a good stage with no problems. I am happy now with my pace.
21. 08. 2015 15:17 CET 5 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I think it was a big improvement, but I have a problem at the beginning of the stage with error message on dashboard. The driving felt better.
21. 08. 2015 15:16 CET 5 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I think I am losing in cutting places. Seb is doing better on places where you cut. There was a couple of tricky places.
21. 08. 2015 15:13 CET 5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I'm quite happy with the car - the setup was good. Some of the corners were cleaner than I was expecting, so I lost a little time there, but it's better to be surprised like that and not the other way around...
21. 08. 2015 14:50 CET 5 Start of stage is delayed for five minutes.
21. 08. 2015 13:39 CET 4 retired (77 - Bouffier Bryan / Vauclare Frédéric): retired in SS 4
21. 08. 2015 12:47 CET 4 flash info (12 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): It is a good start for us so far.
21. 08. 2015 12:46 CET 4 flash info (10 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): I was really enjoying this stage, but some braking mistakes, I missed a junction. There is an issue with the front diff. There is no way to be fast and precise. When the things are not working with the diff, the confidence is not there.
21. 08. 2015 12:32 CET 4 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): All good for us, no issues, just driving.
21. 08. 2015 12:31 CET 4 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Quite ok, change the setup, I try to keep higher speed in corners. The last two stages there was massive grip, just the cuts.
21. 08. 2015 12:30 CET 4 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Ok, but nothing special. In service we will try to find a way to get more grip at the front.
21. 08. 2015 12:30 CET 4 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): It felt a little better in here. Made a couple little adjustments. We have a long way to go and a lot of things for me to work on.
21. 08. 2015 12:29 CET 4 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): After the problem on the first stage it's all going ok now.
21. 08. 2015 12:28 CET 4 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Did not have a great run, a bit too careful. Not great but at least we know where the time is. On the whole it is feeling ok.
21. 08. 2015 12:27 CET 4 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Here good run, slippy braking, I took my time. Certainly my target is just to keep in front of everyone else. We changed the rim and everything is perfect.
21. 08. 2015 12:26 CET 4 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I did not drive fastest enough. I had good stage before, but still many more stages to go.
21. 08. 2015 12:25 CET 4 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I haven’t got one stage where I have a really clean stage. I just need some time to settle in, but it is not too much to worry about. I need a little bit more mileage to get the rhythm in the car. I brake way too early in so many places.
21. 08. 2015 12:25 CET 4 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It is getting better. We have a huge gap to improve. We will try to change something to make it a bit easier.
21. 08. 2015 12:24 CET 4 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is getting definately better. It is all about getting the braking right, it is so important in this rally. It was more difficult this morning than I thought.
21. 08. 2015 12:23 CET 4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): This stage, I felt a bit more happy with the setup. I am happy with the loop. Here it is always some corner very slippery.
21. 08. 2015 13:28 CET 3 retired (119 - Dilley Guillaume / Louette Michael): retired in SS 3
21. 08. 2015 13:28 CET 3 retired (115 - Novak Tim / Ocvirk Uroš): retired in SS 3
21. 08. 2015 13:27 CET 3 retired (102 - Aasen Marius / Engan Veronica): retired in SS 3
21. 08. 2015 13:27 CET 3 retired (79 - Coffey Graham / Gäbler Jenny): accident in SS 3
21. 08. 2015 11:47 CET 3 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): For sure we are a bit struggling at the hairpins. I took it too aggressive in some places, maybe I was doing too much sideways. I bit of dust in some of the cuts.
21. 08. 2015 11:46 CET 3 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Is very warm and also the grip is better than the stages before. Our setup was too soft for this stage and sometimes it was not stable on fast corners.
21. 08. 2015 11:45 CET 3 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The stages are already very dirty, many corners are slippery and many gravel on the road. Not the time we expect but it is like that.
21. 08. 2015 11:44 CET 3 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): This sort of stage I enjoyed, it is very technical and narrow. But the car is too soft.
21. 08. 2015 11:40 CET 3 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Allright for me, I was a bit too careful in the beginning. It was getting a bit more slippery in the end, but it was a clean run for us.
21. 08. 2015 11:39 CET 3 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): No handbrake, so difficult on some of these hairpins, but we managed to reset and it was fine.
21. 08. 2015 11:38 CET 3 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It was a slow junction, I touched the throttle and the car stepped sideways and I touched the kerb.
21. 08. 2015 11:37 CET 3 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had the feeling I push quite hard and when it is technical we see the times are quite close. I still struggle with some understeer. I feel I have done a good stage.
21. 08. 2015 11:36 CET 3 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It is a long stage with a lot of things happening. Really need to keep your concentration, it is easy to make a mistake. A lot of cutting and gravel on the road. I am happy enough.
21. 08. 2015 11:35 CET 3 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Quite happy, but it is not very fun to see the times when you get to the end of the stage. I am definitely not able to go at that speed. I felt that it is gone better and better but I am losing more time, I don’t know what to do.
21. 08. 2015 11:32 CET 3 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Still I did a few mistakes, I am not completely satisfied, trying to find the right feeling for the braking.
21. 08. 2015 11:31 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It is close. It was not really a good stage for me, I try to drive well, but some corner I do not have the perfect speed, too cautious. But it was not too bad. It is a good drive, no mistakes, but now I am looking for perfection and now it is not the case.
23. 08. 2015 13:08 CET 21 flash info (44 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): My first visit in German, I am really happy. Now it is Corsica and Spain, I am very confident.
23. 08. 2015 13:05 CET 21 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It has been really great weekend. The car is really incredible, really fast. All the Volkswagen family has to be happy this weekend.
23. 08. 2015 13:02 CET 21 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It’s a big relief, the pressure was on all weekend. We made it with a 1-2-3, so happy for me. A fantastic week, really happy for the whole team. I am really really happy.
23. 08. 2015 12:59 CET 21 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We got it all ok.
23. 08. 2015 12:57 CET 21 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I really hope Jari-Matti (Latvala) and Seb (Ogier) can finish. I am really happy with our performance. It has been a great weekend for all of us, it is all about finishing it now.
23. 08. 2015 12:55 CET 21 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I am very happy for me, for the team. Neuville do a really good rally here.
23. 08. 2015 12:52 CET 21 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I was missing just some confidence with the settings in some stages. Thanks to the team, the car was working without any issues. Another good event for Hyundai and another good result.
23. 08. 2015 12:50 CET 21 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): There has been some real positives at times but we have struggled at times, there is a lot of work to be done between now and Corsica.
23. 08. 2015 12:46 CET 21 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I had a spin in a slow corner, difficult to turn there, I had to reverse quite long. I am very happy with our progression. A few more tarmac rallies to go so I can get better and better.
23. 08. 2015 12:44 CET 21 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): I have not been on tarmac for a long long time. We definitely have a lot to improve but at least we see the places where we have to improve.
23. 08. 2015 12:44 CET 21 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): I have not been on tarmac for a long long time. We definitely have a lot to improve but at least we see the places where we have to improve.
23. 08. 2015 12:41 CET 21 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): A big learning lesson. We have to go back and study the data, there will be a lot of positives come out of this long term. You have to take the good with the bad. On this one we ran wide hit the kerb.
23. 08. 2015 12:39 CET 21 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I done something stupid on day one, I don’t want to do anything stupid on the last day. Very disappointed.
23. 08. 2015 12:34 CET 21 flash info (12 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): It has been an incredible week for us. Now I have a good grin for a good time, I am very happy
23. 08. 2015 12:34 CET 21 (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): spun in SS 21
23. 08. 2015 12:31 CET 21 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): It started quite difficult for us with the engine change. Afterwards it did not get easier, a few issues on the car and my mistakes. Things today have been improved a bit and looking forward for Corsica.”
23. 08. 2015 11:29 CET 20 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): We are trying to do are best, but the car is working fantastic without any troubles. Is a really nice test before the Barum rally.
23. 08. 2015 11:26 CET 20 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Not possible to catch Elfyn (Evans), I am just trying to do some good stages.
23. 08. 2015 11:21 CET 20 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It was ok. We are playing around a lot with the set-up. Sometimes it is worse, sometimes it is better.
21. 08. 2015 12:49 CET 2 retired (114 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): retired in SS 2
21. 08. 2015 11:29 CET 2 retired (39 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): accident in SS 2
21. 08. 2015 11:29 CET 2 (24 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): was out of road
21. 08. 2015 10:35 CET 2 flash info (10 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): There was understeer in the first one but now it's much, much worse. I'm having to use the handbrake all the time. It's not a feeling I had on the pre-event test.
21. 08. 2015 10:20 CET 2 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Quite a smooth run although we have a lot of wheelspin out of the hairpins - maybe an issue with the handbrake or the differential.
21. 08. 2015 10:19 CET 2 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Same for everybody - I have low grip and massive understeer. It's not nice. I'm trying to find a way to keep the speed in the corners.
21. 08. 2015 10:16 CET 2 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I don't have a lot of confidence in the car. It is not working very well.
21. 08. 2015 10:14 CET 2 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Another slippery stage. We made some damper changes but they didn't really help. As soon as I hit the gravel I lose my confidence.
21. 08. 2015 10:12 CET 2 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): No problems but I was more careful in the cuts. it's getting extremely slippery.
21. 08. 2015 10:11 CET 2 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Clean enough, but I’m struggling for grip. I can’t get the car to give me enough feeling.
21. 08. 2015 10:11 CET 2 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): The rhythm is good. We’ll keep going.
21. 08. 2015 10:10 CET 2 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was better, I changed the setup a bit and found some more grip.
21. 08. 2015 10:09 CET 2 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I was too careful in many places. The car feels great and it was a nice clean drive but I was not near enough to the limit.
21. 08. 2015 10:09 CET 2 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I'm not happy, but I felt it was better in here than the first one. Still too cautious in places.
21. 08. 2015 10:08 CET 2 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The first stage was ok but I'm not happy with my driving in here. I'm losing too much time with understeer and I don't know why.
21. 08. 2015 10:07 CET 2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Not a perfect stage again, and I'm yet to find the perfect rhythm, but I'm satisfied.
23. 08. 2015 08:56 CET 19 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I know why I made the mistake last year, I was making the notes too fast and driving too fast. Everyday is a school day.
23. 08. 2015 08:55 CET 19 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I think it will be difficult to get some points in the power stage.
23. 08. 2015 08:52 CET 19 (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): brake problems and few times off the road
23. 08. 2015 08:50 CET 19 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): All good, nice stage. Keeping our position.
23. 08. 2015 08:49 CET 19 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): A lot better than yesterday. My driving on tarmac, I think I have forgotten the basics.
23. 08. 2015 08:06 CET 18 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It is important to finish this rally, of course would be stupid to push this morning.
23. 08. 2015 08:03 CET 18 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Maybe today is the day to accept the situation and get to the finish and then next year can be a completely different story.
23. 08. 2015 08:02 CET 18 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Today it is all about finding a good rhythm where you feel safe.
23. 08. 2015 08:01 CET 18 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): No risk but quite fast.
23. 08. 2015 07:52 CET 18 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Wasn’t a perfect stage, we had quite a big moment in one place...
23. 08. 2015 07:51 CET 18 (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): has a double puncture and only has one spare in SS 18
23. 08. 2015 07:49 CET 18 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It was ok, you can feel it is really grippy out there.
23. 08. 2015 07:48 CET 18 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): It feels better but it does not feel normal up the hills. I am not sure.
23. 08. 2015 07:47 CET 18 flash info (12 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): I push a little bit.
23. 08. 2015 07:34 CET 18 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): I am struggling a lot. Nearly off again on braking and turning.
23. 08. 2015 07:32 CET 18 (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): stopped in SS 18
22. 08. 2015 19:36 CET 17 flash info (44 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): It is ok, but we try to push a little bit more and apparently the time is not very good, I don’t know why.
22. 08. 2015 19:35 CET 17 flash info (42 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I am gutted...
22. 08. 2015 19:31 CET 17 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It has been a really good day for us. In the afternoon we are trying to keep the same speed and not make any stupid mistake and lose our position.
22. 08. 2015 19:30 CET 17 flash info (12 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): On the last one I don’t push I like to finish and tomorrow I hope I can do the same.
22. 08. 2015 19:27 CET 17 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): This day was really bad, from the beginning to the end was horrible. Today was really disappoint and not nice to drive.
22. 08. 2015 19:24 CET 17 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): We were struggling a lot with the set-up in the morning and we made quite big changes at the lunchtime.
22. 08. 2015 19:21 CET 17 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We had to take two spares so it has not been great, the balance of the car has not been great with the two spares.
22. 08. 2015 19:12 CET 17 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): So far we did pretty well, find the right balance between pushing and not taking any risk.
22. 08. 2015 19:08 CET 17 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It is not so bad for sure. When I try harder I go slower.
22. 08. 2015 19:06 CET 17 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): At the end one left hand corner we just run a little bit wide. (grass in the front)
22. 08. 2015 19:03 CET 17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It has been a perfect day for us, really happy. We managed to make the most of the difference in Panzerplatte, that was the key of the rally.
22. 08. 2015 18:49 CET 16 flash info (42 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): We got a puncture quite early in the stage. Without gravel crews we're driving blind and a corner that was clean before was full of dirt this time.
22. 08. 2015 18:47 CET 16 flash info (44 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I think Craig has a puncture, so I was very, very careful to avoid getting one myself. Ok, I'm happy to be up to second now.
22. 08. 2015 18:45 CET 16 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): One stage to go today, so driving carefully but I tried to put on a show for the Czech fans I saw in the stage.
22. 08. 2015 18:45 CET 16 (10 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): power steering problem in SS 16
22. 08. 2015 18:41 CET 16 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The car felt much better with the modifications my engineers made in service. We have more grip and I enjoyed the stage.
22. 08. 2015 18:36 CET 16 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I'm a little bit happier now because my engineer has confirmed we have a turbo problem. We've probably had it since before service, it is answer a few questions.
22. 08. 2015 18:34 CET 16 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): We went off but the starter motor isn't working and it took us one minute to get the engine going.
22. 08. 2015 18:32 CET 16 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): There was gravel on the road in one of the last corners and we went wide. We always knew we would lose a bit of time here because we're carrying two spares.
22. 08. 2015 18:31 CET 16 (42 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): move again
22. 08. 2015 18:30 CET 16 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): There's a maze of roads here and it's a little easier on the second pass.
22. 08. 2015 18:28 CET 16 (42 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): stopped at the 7 km point in SS 16
22. 08. 2015 18:26 CET 16 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I have made too many mistakes. Too many late brakes, especially in the slow corners.
22. 08. 2015 18:23 CET 16 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I´m surprised by the time because I felt we had a good run. But it seems that we didn't.
22. 08. 2015 18:21 CET 16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I had a really good stage. I managed to find a good set-up. The tyres survived okay. Even at the end they were good.
22. 08. 2015 16:11 CET 14 flash info (12 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): It's much better with the pacenotes corrected. The time is not bad!
22. 08. 2015 16:10 CET 14 flash info (10 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): From now on we can build up the speed. Feeling is good - I'm happy. Notes still a bit too slow.
22. 08. 2015 16:08 CET 14 (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Front left puncture
22. 08. 2015 16:07 CET 14 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I'm still struggling on some hairpins and I lost some time. Although the time looks quite good.
22. 08. 2015 16:06 CET 14 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): It felt better but time didn't reflect that. I'm a bit lost at the moment.
22. 08. 2015 16:04 CET 14 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): We touched rocks on the inside of the first corner and that upset the rhythm. We made some set-up changes to make the car more reactive and it felt better.
22. 08. 2015 16:03 CET 14 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We stiffen a bit the car and in some places it was quite nice. I hope it will be ok for the Panzerplatte.
22. 08. 2015 16:03 CET 14 (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): hit a rock and break the wheel
22. 08. 2015 16:00 CET 14 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): That one was a little disappointing after this morning. Can't seem to get the best out of the tyres in this afternoon heat.
22. 08. 2015 15:56 CET 14 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): This morning I had never driven this stage in this direction, so we were checking our notes. This was better but it will take a lot to get over the disappointment of yesterday.
22. 08. 2015 15:54 CET 14 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The fight with Dani carries on.
22. 08. 2015 15:52 CET 14 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): We changed the diff in service and it takes time to get used to. We're testing some set-ups for Corsica.
22. 08. 2015 15:51 CET 14 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Not so bad. I tried to push a little bit more but I'm too careful in the gravel. I could have pushed more there. There's always something to do but at least it's moving in the right direction.
22. 08. 2015 15:50 CET 14 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I didn't know that. Perhaps it happened in a compression. The stage felt good.
22. 08. 2015 12:38 CET 13 retired (24 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): went off in SS13
22. 08. 2015 12:29 CET 13 flash info (44 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Good, but the time was not so good.
22. 08. 2015 12:27 CET 13 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It was quite good, but it is quite slippy in some places, the guys are cutting in some places and we have to be careful with this.
22. 08. 2015 12:26 CET 13 flash info (22 - Melichárek Jaroslav / Melichárek Erik): The stage is fantastic and hard, very slippery.
22. 08. 2015 12:24 CET 13 flash info (10 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): We have no power steering for the last 8km.
22. 08. 2015 12:21 CET 13 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): We have a problem with the driveshaft. We were lucky, we saved the car really a lot. I was worried before the stage that it will be really difficult but we managed.
22. 08. 2015 12:18 CET 13 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): You turn the steering wheel and the car goes straight ahead, everywhere…
22. 08. 2015 12:14 CET 13 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I started quite slow and I still did not have a lot of tyre left by the end.
22. 08. 2015 12:12 CET 13 (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): had problems with the brakes in SS 13
22. 08. 2015 12:09 CET 13 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It’s a long stage. This year with the new tyres it is hard to know how hard you can push. The tyres are still good by the end so I think you can push more.
22. 08. 2015 12:05 CET 13 flash info (4 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): I had one massive impact (on the jump).
22. 08. 2015 12:00 CET 13 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The car was not working on this conditions, the car was a bit stiff.
22. 08. 2015 11:57 CET 13 retired (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): reported to rip a wheel off in SS 13
22. 08. 2015 11:52 CET 13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It is a difficult stage, now without splits, you do not know where you are. You have to save a bit the tyres but also go as fast as you can.
22. 08. 2015 11:08 CET 13 The longest and most famous stage of the rally with 103 junctions packed into less than 46km. The surface changes constantly and many roads are lined with hinkelsteins. That is SS Panzerplatte.
22. 08. 2015 11:04 CET 10 Organisers have paused the stage after WRC 2 entrant Jonathan Hirschi so that some stray cows can be moved to a safe area. An eight-minute delay.
22. 08. 2015 10:56 CET 10 flash info (44 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I think this morning we are too much careful. Now it is better, a little bit more push.
22. 08. 2015 10:54 CET 10 flash info (42 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): That one I found difficult, I have not done it before.
22. 08. 2015 10:53 CET 10 flash info (45 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I just like to go the same rhythm as yesterday. I do not want to slow do too much as if you slow down too much you make a mistake.
22. 08. 2015 10:52 CET 10 flash info (22 - Melichárek Jaroslav / Melichárek Erik): My tyres, we had soft tyres, very bad choice.
22. 08. 2015 10:49 CET 10 flash info (10 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): I was really happy with the last split, I think it went really well, but I am just struggling myself with braking.
22. 08. 2015 10:48 CET 10 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): This stage is new for me. This was the first time, trying to correct pace notes, trying to learn a bit.
22. 08. 2015 10:47 CET 10 (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): broken driveshaft
22. 08. 2015 10:45 CET 10 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We have a problem with the gear change, we have a problem with the hairpins. When you shift down a little bit faster, it is not going down. Not so good.
22. 08. 2015 10:27 CET 10 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I now what I have to do after looking at the data last night. When you are focusing on what you are doing with your feet, it is difficult to keep the pace.
22. 08. 2015 10:22 CET 10 (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): An on-board camera has come loose and was down in the footwell. Tänak had to hold it up, because afraid to get it stuck behind his brake pedal.
22. 08. 2015 10:22 CET 10 (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): An on-board camera has come loose and was down in the footwell. Tänak had to hold it up, because afraid to get it stuck behind his brake pedal.
22. 08. 2015 10:17 CET 10 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Everything is ok. It is a new stage so maybe it is not quite so easy.
22. 08. 2015 09:30 CET 10 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): In the first one I over drive, here I drive very clean and fast.
22. 08. 2015 09:28 CET 10 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I’m in a real good position and I have good distance behind.
22. 08. 2015 09:20 CET 10 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was a goods stage. I remember it from there. Now I enjoyed it and now the notes were working.
22. 08. 2015 09:19 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I didn’t take all the risk, I have a little margin, not a lot.
21. 08. 2015 13:31 CET 1 retired (132 - Herrmann Achim / Hoff Otmar): retired after SS 1
21. 08. 2015 09:51 CET 1 flash info (39 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): On tarmac I feel good, but there's so much dirt on this road that I don't feel too confident.
21. 08. 2015 09:50 CET 1 flash info (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): There was a lot of gravel in the road and we understeered off. Spectators pushed us back on. We try to continue.
21. 08. 2015 09:50 CET 1 (38 - Al-Attiyah Nasser / Baumel Matthieu): was out of road
21. 08. 2015 09:24 CET 1 flash info (12 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): The car is incredible. I'm very happy. I didn't push hard.
21. 08. 2015 09:20 CET 1 flash info (10 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): It's not easy. The grip levels were very variable.
21. 08. 2015 09:13 CET 1 Stage continue.
21. 08. 2015 09:06 CET 1 Stage is stopped due to horses on the road.
21. 08. 2015 09:05 CET 1 flash info (14 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): It is quite dirty and slippy, one compression we went slightly into the side of the road.
21. 08. 2015 09:05 CET 1 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Quite ok, the beginning of the stage was horrible, we have no grip and then it was better and better, so quite ok.
21. 08. 2015 09:04 CET 1 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I didn't enjoy it so much. The road was very different to shakedown and there is a lot of gravel around. I lost the rhythm. I was driving like a blouse. More learning to do.
21. 08. 2015 08:57 CET 1 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Just at the beginning of the stage, one braking after the corner, full gravel I went into the field and hit the barrier.
21. 08. 2015 08:56 CET 1 (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): was out of road
21. 08. 2015 08:54 CET 1 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Not the best, less grip than I thought, it was not a particularly clean run, we need to see if we can find some more grip for the next one.
21. 08. 2015 08:52 CET 1 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I am happy, but Volkswagen's have got something I haven’t... It has been a problem for long enough, we need to do something.
21. 08. 2015 08:52 CET 1 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was very tricky, I thought it was very slippy. I tried to do a good stage. The corners are getting a bit more dusty.
21. 08. 2015 08:48 CET 1 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Out of the junctions I went a little but sideways and into the gravel and lost a little speed, but it was a clean stage for us.
