Date and time SS Information
25. 01. 2015 12:58 CET 15 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I'm delighted! Much more than I expected, before the rally I was thinking fourth or fifth! I must thank my ice crew for their information.
25. 01. 2015 12:53 CET 15 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Victory in Mont Carlo means a lot especially for me. I love the atmosphere. It is a huge challenge but the feeling is even better when you make it. So tricky, very difficult. When I was doing this stage so close to my home town the atmosphere was just magic.
25. 01. 2015 12:47 CET 15 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It has been a great rally for us. Amazing way to start the season for Volkswagen, to get a 1-2-3 in Monte Carlo, does not happen everyday.
25. 01. 2015 12:44 CET 15 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Again very lucky, same engine problem again, so we had to stop. I'll be in the new car for Sweden so hopefully it wont happen again. I'm pleased to be here without any mistakes from my side.
25. 01. 2015 12:41 CET 15 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Neuville was a little bit faster. It was very difficult, was very close at the end.
25. 01. 2015 12:37 CET 15 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It feels great especially as I enjoy more today, the conditions are quite nice.
25. 01. 2015 12:34 CET 15 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Happy to be here, a bit of a feeling of what could have been after this rally. Some other things that have been very frustrating, not always made the smartest choices. It has shown the speed is there or there abouts, it is down to working on consistency.
25. 01. 2015 12:32 CET 15 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Last two days was really struggling. This stage we were pushing really hard but the time was really bad. The last two days was real disaster so we have to see what is wrong. Looking forward to the next race.
25. 01. 2015 12:30 CET 15 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It was great. Disappointed because of the mistake yesterday, but the rest I had pleasure, I enjoyed it. It was nice to be here.
25. 01. 2015 12:28 CET 15 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): A little bit more dry, but it was still tricky. I had a good stage. It bode’s well for the future, but I want results.
25. 01. 2015 12:25 CET 15 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): I enjoy myself. I had one miss in there. See you in Sweden, bye bye.
25. 01. 2015 12:24 CET 15 flash info (17 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): We have just fourth, fifth and sixth gear - very difficult in the hairpins.
25. 01. 2015 12:23 CET 15 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It was good stage, really tricky in the beginning, still some snow and ice in the beginning. I think we had a good Monte and for M-Sport, I am happy to be here.
25. 01. 2015 12:19 CET 15 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): It was ok, we made some good times.
25. 01. 2015 12:19 CET 15 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Bernacchini Giovanni): I'm happy to get to the finish. I have a new codriver, a new team. Looking for more improvement on rallies I know better this year.
25. 01. 2015 13:22 CET 14 retired (24 - Gamba Matteo / Arena Nicola): retired in SS 14

25. 01. 2015 12:09 CET 14 (33 - Giordano Quentin / Sarreaud Valentin): was out of road
25. 01. 2015 11:59 CET 14 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): In the descent, on ice, we touched a rock in the rear - now the car cannot drive straight, I hope I can get through the next stage.
25. 01. 2015 11:58 CET 14 flash info (34 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Koči hit a tree, and Camilli is driving with a broken wheel - suddenly we're up to second.
25. 01. 2015 11:58 CET 14 (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): was out of road
25. 01. 2015 11:57 CET 14 retired (43 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): accident in SS 14
25. 01. 2015 11:53 CET 14 flash info (41 - Kremer Armin / Wicha Klaus): We are here and happy. The stage was slippery, we had no control over the car on the way up.
25. 01. 2015 11:53 CET 14 flash info (32 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): I don't push because I have a big gap to Kremer. Only one more to go now.
25. 01. 2015 11:47 CET 14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was good. Better conditions than I expected. It was good, happy with this one. I thought there would be more snow on the road pulled out by the cars ahead.
25. 01. 2015 11:46 CET 14 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Not good, the brakes are horrible in this car at the moment. I have no bite, it is very scary. We have only one more stage, I hope it will be alright.
25. 01. 2015 11:43 CET 14 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Ok stage for us, no problems, just securing the third place. We went with the super soft, too soft for this stage.
25. 01. 2015 11:41 CET 14 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Good stage, good rhythm. To be honest we did like we did on the last stage, have a good rhythm, try to enjoy it, it is a beautiful stage.
25. 01. 2015 11:39 CET 14 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Very difficult. Tricky and very bad in some places. I slow down a lot, one car went off.
25. 01. 2015 11:37 CET 14 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Good. Very tricky in some places on the braking. In one place I see everybody touch the wall and I was very close.
25. 01. 2015 11:35 CET 14 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Fairly careful to be honest, we have nothing to gain. Just careful in there.
25. 01. 2015 11:35 CET 14 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It was really difficult, it was very slippery on the downhill. We had a big moment, biggest of this weekend, after the tunnel, we half spin, I thought it would be huge crash. Difficult conditions, really difficult.
25. 01. 2015 11:31 CET 14 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It was ok, good feeling with the car. A little bit of snow but not so much. I had a good rhythm.
25. 01. 2015 11:31 CET 14 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Really slow, I wanted to save my tyres for the power stage. After the finish line, I stopped with Kubica and he explained that he lost the brake pedal and straight into the wall.
25. 01. 2015 11:31 CET 14 retired (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): accident in SS 14
25. 01. 2015 11:28 CET 14 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): Kubica got off - properly in the last corner. It was ok, starting to feel better, the car is really good now.
25. 01. 2015 11:26 CET 14 (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): out of road after flying finish
25. 01. 2015 11:24 CET 14 (17 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): problems with gearbox
25. 01. 2015 11:22 CET 14 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Really tricky stage, a lot of icy places, some places really tricky. I stopped in one place and had to reverse.
25. 01. 2015 11:19 CET 14 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): It was difficult with my tyres because we had too much pressure in them in the opening stage and destroyed them. Not so good.
25. 01. 2015 11:17 CET 14 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Bernacchini Giovanni): Tricky, some damp and some ice. My super soft tyres are almost finished at the end but we are ok. I think everybody is in the same situation more or less.
25. 01. 2015 10:42 CET 14 Stage is mostly dry, only some damp parts.
25. 01. 2015 12:57 CET 13 retired (74 - Carret Claude / Mathias Olivier): retired after SS 13
25. 01. 2015 10:37 CET 13 flash info (34 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): The engineers have been working overtime.
25. 01. 2015 10:36 CET 13 flash info (43 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): Quite happy with the time, we have to fight for second place.
25. 01. 2015 10:22 CET 13 flash info (41 - Kremer Armin / Wicha Klaus): Not easy with the car. There were too many narrow corners but I think it's ok.
25. 01. 2015 10:19 CET 13 flash info (32 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): I don't push. No mistakes. I only want to finish now. I am 2 minutes ahead of Kremer so I am looking only for the finish.
25. 01. 2015 10:15 CET 13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It is the only point to finish. We went again for a safe tyre choice, not optimum for this stage. We will not have the right tyre for the Power Stage, but the most important thing is to win the rally.
25. 01. 2015 10:15 CET 13 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): No point to take any risks in the position that I am in, just learn the stage for the Power Stage
25. 01. 2015 10:15 CET 13 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Clean stage for us, no problems. It is a nice stage, we sill see what we will do. Third place is very good.
25. 01. 2015 10:11 CET 13 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Not so bad, quite okay stage, not so difficult today, certainly a nice lot of spectators, nothing to complain about.
25. 01. 2015 10:08 CET 13 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Condition was a little bit tricky in some places with ice on some places on the outside and snow from some cars. I try to push it hard here, not bad.
25. 01. 2015 10:07 CET 13 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was a good stage for me, but sliding abit towards the end as the tyres were overheating.
25. 01. 2015 10:05 CET 13 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The car is working great. Difficult to know the tyre choice in there. I am not sure what the best compromise was.
25. 01. 2015 10:02 CET 13 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Yeah, Loeb is pushing hard. That was ok. Let's see how the Col de Turini looks. I expect it will be much worse.
25. 01. 2015 10:00 CET 13 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): Some corners cars are cutting a bit and they bring some snow on the road that you do not expect.
25. 01. 2015 09:58 CET 13 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Quite good, very tricky, a mixture of dry and damp, but all the spectators are putting snow on the road and they are quite clever, they are doing it on the blind corners.
25. 01. 2015 09:56 CET 13 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): The engineers have found a great setting now - they have fixed the car.
25. 01. 2015 09:55 CET 13 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Sorry, I must go to cool the hot brakes.
25. 01. 2015 09:53 CET 13 flash info (17 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): We have some problem with the gearbox. No third gear, and without 3rd the hairpins are not easy.
25. 01. 2015 09:52 CET 13 (17 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): problems with gearbox
25. 01. 2015 09:51 CET 13 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): A big moment early on, there was a very late call on the pacenote. I had a bit of work to do to straighten it out. It's fine.
25. 01. 2015 09:48 CET 13 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): Quite slippy at the beginning but it was ok. The finish line is not great - the braking after is short.
25. 01. 2015 09:47 CET 13 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Bernacchini Giovanni): Clean condition. A couple of mistakes but we take it easy.
25. 01. 2015 09:44 CET 13 (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): Almost out of road after the finish, stalled engine.
25. 01. 2015 09:33 CET 13 Stage is mostly dry, only few damp parts.
24. 01. 2015 19:42 CET 12 flash info (119 - Garcin Christopher / Porcher Sébastien): It was nice, I’m at home, it was great.
24. 01. 2015 19:42 CET 12 flash info (105 - Cretien Jeremy / Rouchouze Xavier): I went off road on the left, there were no spectators, I lost a lot of time.
24. 01. 2015 19:42 CET 12 flash info (100 - Metiffiot Stéphane / Metiffiot Pierre André): Everything is fine, I’m happy to be here.
24. 01. 2015 19:42 CET 12 flash info (94 - Baffoun Philippe / Sagetat Olivier): I had a spin, I knew this stage as a spectator but as a pilot it’s quite different.
24. 01. 2015 19:41 CET 12 flash info (79 - Mondet Jean-Noël / Thomas Laura): Thermo gum paid off, I overtook a car and caught up another one.
24. 01. 2015 19:41 CET 12 flash info (103 - Picchioni Florian / Borel Thierry): Not too bad, we still have engine stalls but it didn’t bother us on the snow parts.
24. 01. 2015 19:41 CET 12 flash info (80 - Sias Franck / Gastinel Jean-François): Very complicated with this car on the snow, we only pushed on dry road.
24. 01. 2015 19:40 CET 12 flash info (74 - Carret Claude / Mathias Olivier): I’m really happy, as the grand pilot Delecour said ‘It’s from Thoard that you can catch a glimpse of Monaco.’
24. 01. 2015 19:40 CET 12 flash info (82 - Dolce Renaud / Ayasse Jean-Pierre): It’s fine but with what we lost this morning...
24. 01. 2015 19:39 CET 12 flash info (97 - Vatanen Max / Renucci Jacques-Julien): It’s fine, I didn’t take any risks on the slippery portions.
24. 01. 2015 19:39 CET 12 flash info (19 - Raoux Jean-Michel / Escartefigue Thomas): Better than this morning. We made the right call for the tyres.
24. 01. 2015 19:39 CET 12 flash info (51 - Dalmasso Charlotte / Delon Marine): Bad tyre choice, very slippery. It’s a catastrophy.
24. 01. 2015 18:30 CET 12 flash info (22 - Duez Marc / Vyncke Steven): I drift more than I pilot, the spectators must be delighted. It is a typical Monte-Carlo and as usual we have to make compromises for the tyre choice.
24. 01. 2015 18:30 CET 12 flash info (57 - Rossel Yohan / Fulcrand Benoît): I lack traction and I lost all my studs before the Col.
24. 01. 2015 18:30 CET 12 flash info (84 - Consani Stéphane / Vilmot Maxime): I pushed a lot at first. Maybe a little too much, I ended up losing my brakes. I didn’t have a good rhythm on black ice in Fontbelle.
24. 01. 2015 18:30 CET 12 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / Giraudet Denis): I had some issues with the brakes. It was very difficult in Fontbelle with a rear-wheel drive. Moreover, my tyre choice wasn’t good.
24. 01. 2015 18:29 CET 12 flash info (53 - Veiby Ole Christian / Jæger Anders): I lost too much time in this stage.
24. 01. 2015 18:29 CET 12 flash info (60 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): I didn’t want to take any risks I wanted to keep my position.
24. 01. 2015 18:29 CET 12 flash info (40 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): I corrected the mistakes I made this morning.
24. 01. 2015 18:28 CET 12 flash info (34 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It was better with the new settings.
24. 01. 2015 17:12 CET 12 flash info (20 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): The last stage was so difficult for the Porsche. Going up through the snow I was looking behind all the time! After that I pushed to the maximum.
24. 01. 2015 17:06 CET 12 flash info (33 - Giordano Quentin / Sarreaud Valentin): I spun 4km before the end. The engine stalled and didn't want to restart. We called the engineers and in the end it started.
24. 01. 2015 17:05 CET 12 (33 - Giordano Quentin / Sarreaud Valentin): spun
24. 01. 2015 16:58 CET 12 flash info (43 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): It was perfect, the battle was there. The driveshaft is broken, all the oil drained out and we have only rear-wheel drive. Such a disaster. I came here to fight for points. but I'm happy we can continue and tomorrow we fight.
24. 01. 2015 16:58 CET 12 flash info (41 - Kremer Armin / Wicha Klaus): Second would be nice but we won't know for sure until Sunday.
24. 01. 2015 16:57 CET 12 flash info (32 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): It’s the first time with crossed tyres, it was very complicated.
24. 01. 2015 16:48 CET 12 flash info (17 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): There is so much to learn. This is my third Monte and my most difficult.
24. 01. 2015 16:46 CET 12 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): I went straight off, it was my fault. I have never driven a stage with tyres like this.
24. 01. 2015 16:45 CET 12 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It has been feeling good, as we are not fighting anymore. We can do some work for the team and get some know how for Monte. On this one though we were stuck behind Henning for a time.
24. 01. 2015 16:41 CET 12 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I think we need to take studs. With the studs it was a little bit better. The car was understeering a lot, we driver slow.
24. 01. 2015 16:39 CET 12 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): I am quite happy. Happy that we are on the finish on these tricky conditions. It is still difficult.
24. 01. 2015 16:38 CET 12 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Extremely slow, we lost a load of time. I've got a lot more work to do to get the car back to Monaco, but I reckon we'll do it. We are here that is the main thing.
24. 01. 2015 16:37 CET 12 (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): was out of road
24. 01. 2015 16:34 CET 12 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Maybe I should have taken a snow tyre instead of studs. The car was how I wanted, good balance, I really enjoy.
24. 01. 2015 16:33 CET 12 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): We were very lucky now, we had big engine problem in the stage. We had to stop completely and fix it. We stop completely in the stage to fix the engine, we take a reset, after it was running, it was only on 3 cylinders, I was sure it was over.
24. 01. 2015 16:33 CET 12 (43 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): driving with broken driveshaft
24. 01. 2015 16:32 CET 12 (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): problems with engine
24. 01. 2015 16:30 CET 12 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It has been a good day, just driving careful, using my head. It is tricky conditions and all about tyre choice. Still a long day tomorrow but feeling more and more confident.
24. 01. 2015 16:30 CET 12 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I do not understand, I have no intentions to catch Ogier. I really enjoyed this stage, we had a really good stage. It is surprising that we have come so close to Ogier.
24. 01. 2015 16:28 CET 12 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's a beautiful stage, but in these conditions my studded tyres were the safe option.
24. 01. 2015 16:26 CET 12 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): We tried, we use a slick, but I was very careful in the middle place, not my best stage.
24. 01. 2015 16:24 CET 12 (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Problems with suspension after crash on previous stage.
24. 01. 2015 16:22 CET 12 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): We tried the combination, 2 studs and 2 super softs. I made a spin in the stage, I could have been 10 or 12 seconds faster. It was a hairpin left and we tried to put a wheel on the grass to get some grip and there was a lot more grip which spun the car road.
24. 01. 2015 16:21 CET 12 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Very difficult as we have handbrake failure. On slicks, on snow, on ice, without the handbrake was quite difficult. Also the tight hairpins on the down hill without the handbrake, I have to throw the car. It does not matter which tyre you have, it does not matter.
24. 01. 2015 16:18 CET 12 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): It was the same as every year. All dry except for four or five kilometres of ice and snow.
24. 01. 2015 16:12 CET 12 (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): spun
24. 01. 2015 15:54 CET 12 (43 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): problems with driveshaft before SS 12
24. 01. 2015 15:45 CET 12 Start of stage is delayed for 6 mins.
24. 01. 2015 15:26 CET 12 Stage is mostly dry, only 4 kms of second part are covered by ice and snow.
24. 01. 2015 18:04 CET 11 flash info (108 - Dessi Marc / Dessi Vanessa): It’s much better since we changed the gearbox.
24. 01. 2015 18:03 CET 11 flash info (117 - Brunier Stéphane / Ferre Sylvain): Even in Super Rally we will fight for the top 3 of our category.
24. 01. 2015 18:03 CET 11 flash info (72 - Latil Nicolas / Roche Romain): The car in front slowed us for 5 km.
24. 01. 2015 18:03 CET 11 flash info (79 - Mondet Jean-Noël / Thomas Laura): We had some problems with the notes in this stage as I had never run it.
24. 01. 2015 18:02 CET 11 flash info (81 - Vialle Lilian / Ghirardello Manuel): We have too many things in the trunk, it’s heavy.
24. 01. 2015 18:02 CET 11 flash info (29 - Vukasovic Laurent / Groux Steve): Good stage. Too bad we got lost in our notes.
24. 01. 2015 18:02 CET 11 flash info (97 - Vatanen Max / Renucci Jacques-Julien): I pushed a lot in this stage despite the fact I had Thermogum.
24. 01. 2015 18:02 CET 11 (28 - Silva Marco / Pina Giovanni): problems with brakes
24. 01. 2015 18:01 CET 11 flash info (73 - Margaillan Matthieu / Margaillan Mathilde): Good choice with slick tyres, I will put two studs in the next stage.
24. 01. 2015 18:01 CET 11 flash info (51 - Dalmasso Charlotte / Delon Marine): Wrong tyre choice.
24. 01. 2015 18:01 CET 11 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / Giraudet Denis): With this car we should have had narrow tyres at the rear.
24. 01. 2015 18:00 CET 11 flash info (52 - Tempestini Simone / Chiarcossi Matteo): We chose winter tyres, it wasn’t a good fit.
24. 01. 2015 18:00 CET 11 flash info (40 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): Complicated choice of tyres as it is a very quick stage. Our choice won’t be good for next stage.
24. 01. 2015 17:59 CET 11 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): My brakes are gone and I have some issues with the gearbox, I hope it will be ok until we arrive in Monaco.
24. 01. 2015 17:59 CET 11 flash info (60 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): A good stage. Now we have a good gap.
24. 01. 2015 15:54 CET 11 (43 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): problems with driveshaft after SS 11
24. 01. 2015 15:19 CET 11 flash info (20 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): We had two studded snow tyres in there - not ideal on clean tarmac. We'll need them for the next stage though. We have another two studded tyres in the car, so we have a full set for the ice on the next stage.
24. 01. 2015 15:00 CET 11 flash info (34 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Finally! I have to take my hat off to my engineer, he's made a big, big, big improvement. After our test I thought I knew how to set the car up - but now we are on the correct setup. My rally starts here.
24. 01. 2015 14:45 CET 11 flash info (43 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): I think we have a puncture. We must check. We had the same super-soft tyres as Lefebvre.
24. 01. 2015 14:44 CET 11 flash info (32 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): The first dry stage. A good run, the time should be ok.
24. 01. 2015 14:43 CET 11 flash info (17 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): We have a soft and snow tyre cross. Ok, probably not the best here but it should be better on the next one.
24. 01. 2015 14:36 CET 11 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It was quite clean and not so bad. I just give myself some time to get the confidence back. All fine now.
24. 01. 2015 14:36 CET 11 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): It was not bad, it was ok.
24. 01. 2015 14:33 CET 11 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Steering is moving a lot, it was difficult to do well, but I will try to fix.
24. 01. 2015 14:33 CET 11 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Different from the previous stages, so quite ok for us. A clean stage.
24. 01. 2015 14:27 CET 11 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I had a moment in there! Clipped a wall but got away with it.
24. 01. 2015 14:26 CET 11 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Quite ok. I was more confident, I have to be careful. In some places I try to push a bit more and in some places the tyre were overheating so I have to take care.
24. 01. 2015 14:24 CET 11 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): No problem, quite ok rhythm, I enjoyed it. A few places there is ice, but nothing like the long stage, quite nice, quite dry.
24. 01. 2015 14:23 CET 11 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): We have full soft on the car now, it was good for us. Trying to be fast and clever at the same time.
24. 01. 2015 14:19 CET 11 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Good, some really fast places with some bumps. It was quite fast in some places. A little bit understeer at the end.
24. 01. 2015 14:18 CET 11 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Good stage for us, no problem at all.
24. 01. 2015 14:17 CET 11 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): Nothing special through here.
24. 01. 2015 14:17 CET 11 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): We have a mixture of tyres, which affects the balance a little. But okay, we had a good rhythm.
24. 01. 2015 14:13 CET 11 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We have done very nicely with very difficult conditions. This stage was very bumpy very difficult.
24. 01. 2015 14:10 CET 11 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): It was good. We took some pleasure in there. We are on the super soft tyres and the car was moving about a bit. All good though, no problems.
24. 01. 2015 15:45 CET 10 flash info (91 - Galleano Yannick / Mallet Christophe): The differences in this stage were due to the tyre choice. We managed to catch the car in front of us with Thermo.
24. 01. 2015 15:44 CET 10 flash info (36 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): I went off road in the stage, I was in a mud hole, I am deeply disappointed.
24. 01. 2015 15:44 CET 10 flash info (74 - Carret Claude / Mathias Olivier): We had crossed studs, slicks would have been better but we favored being cautious.
24. 01. 2015 15:44 CET 10 flash info (85 - Arnaud Christophe / Arnaud Stéphane): Thermogum was a good choice but it was still tricky.
24. 01. 2015 15:42 CET 10 flash info (97 - Vatanen Max / Renucci Jacques-Julien): It’s hard, I tried to be soft, we’ll bring the car back.
24. 01. 2015 15:42 CET 10 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Bernacchini Giovanni): We had the same issues as Chardonnet in the exact same spot.
24. 01. 2015 15:42 CET 10 flash info (51 - Dalmasso Charlotte / Delon Marine): We stalled several times. We had to reverse gear and lost a lot of time!
24. 01. 2015 15:42 CET 10 flash info (73 - Margaillan Matthieu / Margaillan Mathilde): We did well, we remain very cautious on ice as we had soft tyres.
24. 01. 2015 15:41 CET 10 flash info (22 - Duez Marc / Vyncke Steven): We were gentle on the ice and pushed on dry road.
24. 01. 2015 15:41 CET 10 flash info (57 - Rossel Yohan / Fulcrand Benoît): We learn, suspensions are too hard, the car bounces.
24. 01. 2015 15:41 CET 10 flash info (84 - Consani Stéphane / Vilmot Maxime): Our setup is too rigid. The car behind us caught us.
24. 01. 2015 15:40 CET 10 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / Giraudet Denis): We left with winter tyres, we lost 40 seconds. We were not confident because we don’t have enough experience.
24. 01. 2015 15:40 CET 10 flash info (56 - Re Alessandro / Ciucci Giacomo): I made a spin at 12km point: runs with a broken headlight hanging.
24. 01. 2015 15:40 CET 10 flash info (61 - Riedemann Christian / Wenzel Michael): The ice did not bother us, it went well.
24. 01. 2015 15:39 CET 10 flash info (20 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): I am in great shape! Studs would have been better, there is still a lot of black ice and it’s hard to heat up the tyres.
24. 01. 2015 15:39 CET 10 flash info (53 - Veiby Ole Christian / Jæger Anders): Very quick stage.
24. 01. 2015 15:38 CET 10 flash info (60 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): We favored winter tyres not to take any risks. It would have been difficult with slicks on some portions.
24. 01. 2015 15:38 CET 10 flash info (33 - Giordano Quentin / Sarreaud Valentin): In service, everyone told me it was dangerous, so I was careful but I would have been quicker running besides the car.
24. 01. 2015 15:38 CET 10 flash info (40 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): I wanted to use my luck but I made a mistake. I ended up down off the road but no damage.
24. 01. 2015 15:35 CET 10 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): There is still a lot of ice, we are confident on dry road. Our gravel crew did a good work.
24. 01. 2015 15:34 CET 10 flash info (43 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): One of the hardest stages I have ever done, but it's a good fight! I have very happy with my time, I did the same as Lefebvre.
24. 01. 2015 15:32 CET 10 flash info (32 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): We left with soft tyres. It was a good choice but more complicated on black ice.
24. 01. 2015 14:04 CET 10 retired (25 - Burri Olivier / Gordon Fabrice): retired in SS 10
24. 01. 2015 13:59 CET 10 retired (111 - Coudert Serge / Lapendrie Jérôme): accident in SS 10

24. 01. 2015 12:13 CET 10 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Just a long corner over a crest. We went over and there was a patch of gravel. We lost the front and went into a ditch. Big thanks to the spectators who helped us out.
24. 01. 2015 12:07 CET 10 (42 - Lategan Henk / White Barry): stopped in stage
24. 01. 2015 12:07 CET 10 (36 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): stopped in stage
24. 01. 2015 12:01 CET 10 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): We went off at an icy section. I was driving quite carefully, but I tried to push a little more and we went straight on at a corner and down off the road. The spectators helped us back on. Not so much damage.
24. 01. 2015 12:00 CET 10 (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): continue
24. 01. 2015 11:58 CET 10 (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Spectators are trying to put Tänak back to the road from ditch.
24. 01. 2015 11:55 CET 10 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): Just a steady run through, nothing else, I want to come to the finish line.
24. 01. 2015 11:52 CET 10 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): I lost confidence very early in the stage. I was not able to manage the corners at speed. I'm happy to get to the finish.
24. 01. 2015 11:51 CET 10 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): A good stage, but I caught Prokop, got a bit distracted and went off. I brake too late in the corner and I go off, but I get back on the road. But I enjoy when tarmac is like this. I think the car is ok.
24. 01. 2015 11:48 CET 10 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): So difficult, incredibly difficult. Had a few close calls, but I think that is probably the nature of the stage.
24. 01. 2015 11:48 CET 10 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We were on soft tyres - very careful on the icy bits, went well on the dry sections. Good to be here.
24. 01. 2015 11:45 CET 10 (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): out of the road
24. 01. 2015 11:44 CET 10 (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Bernacchini Giovanni): was out of road
24. 01. 2015 11:41 CET 10 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It was very tricky, on slick tyres, quite a bit of the stage on snowy and icy conditions.
24. 01. 2015 11:41 CET 10 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): We went with no risk, we went very slow in the icy parts. A clean stage for us. You go super slow on the icy parts, better to be on the safe side.
24. 01. 2015 11:40 CET 10 (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): was out of road
24. 01. 2015 11:37 CET 10 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I don't understand how Ogier is so much slower. I spun in there and was afraid I had lost a minute or so. A big challenge.
24. 01. 2015 11:36 CET 10 (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): continue
24. 01. 2015 11:35 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Everything is ok. We were very safe with the tyres choice. I was very careful on every icy section.
24. 01. 2015 11:33 CET 10 (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): spun
24. 01. 2015 11:33 CET 10 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): We had to be very, very safe. Our soft tyres were a bit too hard. I had to be very cautious in the ice. The motivation is not the same as yesterday.
24. 01. 2015 11:30 CET 10 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): A lot more ice than I was expecting. On the slow part you lose so much. On the ice we really struggled, I took absolutely no chances.
24. 01. 2015 11:28 CET 10 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Just driving. We have good tyres, the conditions were very very tricky. Our gravel crew done very good job. It was a very difficult stage, but I have driven nicely.
24. 01. 2015 11:12 CET 10 (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): accident in SS 10
24. 01. 2015 11:04 CET 10 (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): stopped in stage
24. 01. 2015 10:58 CET 10 Only 3 kms of stage is snow/ice, rest is mostly dry/wet.
24. 01. 2015 12:41 CET 9 retired (76 - Boland Eamonn / Morrissey Michael Joseph): retired before SS 9
24. 01. 2015 09:18 CET 9 Stage is cancelled due to many spectators.

23. 01. 2015 20:07 CET 8 flash info (84 - Consani Stéphane / Vilmot Maxime): We are having fun, we want to get back in good conditions. No problems with the car so far.
23. 01. 2015 20:07 CET 8 (57 - Rossel Yohan / Fulcrand Benoît): puncture
23. 01. 2015 20:06 CET 8 flash info (22 - Duez Marc / Vyncke Steven): We have lost studs when were needed. We went off road in a curve and hit the rear.
23. 01. 2015 20:06 CET 8 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / Giraudet Denis): We caught up some time. With more studs in the rear, we were able to turn more easily but it is hard to drive.
23. 01. 2015 20:05 CET 8 flash info (61 - Riedemann Christian / Wenzel Michael): It was more slippery than this morning. For me, this was a testing day.
23. 01. 2015 20:05 CET 8 flash info (53 - Veiby Ole Christian / Jæger Anders): Excellent experience but here our tyre choice was bad.
23. 01. 2015 20:05 CET 8 flash info (20 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): I am happy but I have to be careful. The Porsche is not adequate for this kind of stage, the large tyres are hard on these roads. The clutch is starting to slip, I don’t know what the service will be able to do.
23. 01. 2015 20:04 CET 8 flash info (58 - Folb Terry / Le Floch Franck): We have issues with the water temperature, it’s too hot.
23. 01. 2015 20:04 CET 8 flash info (60 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): I’m rather glad about today but we have to be careful, it’s very tricky.
23. 01. 2015 20:04 CET 8 flash info (40 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): Satisfied with this day. And I am getting ready for the 51km long stage tomorrow. I have always managed to end the rallies with this car, I hope it will be the same.
23. 01. 2015 18:27 CET 8 (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): stage time before rally 2: 21:16.6
23. 01. 2015 18:25 CET 8 retired (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): broken wheel after SS 8
23. 01. 2015 17:20 CET 8 flash info (33 - Giordano Quentin / Sarreaud Valentin): I hit a wall on previous stage, punctured a tyre and broke my left rear suspension. I had to drive this whole stage with no suspension.
23. 01. 2015 17:11 CET 8 flash info (43 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): I have to say I'm very surprised by the times. We came here to try to be able to be in the top 5, or to be competitive. It's my first time here, and my first time in the car. I've really enjoyed myself. I'm happy to be here for now, I will try to get closer to Lefebvre.
23. 01. 2015 17:11 CET 8 flash info (32 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): It's a good day for us. This morning I lost time to Koci, but this afternoon I pushed him a little. A good afternoon for us.
23. 01. 2015 16:49 CET 8 retired (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): technical problem - suspension in SS 8
23. 01. 2015 16:41 CET 8 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It happened, I hit a little bit a rock on an icy place, not so hard, but it broke something. I try really hard with the tyre choice and I did a mistake. I will try to get to service.
23. 01. 2015 16:40 CET 8 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Bernacchini Giovanni): I'm happy, my first outing in the World Rally Car and we're doing ok.
23. 01. 2015 16:36 CET 8 (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): stopped again
23. 01. 2015 16:33 CET 8 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): I found it quite good, reasonable rhythm without taking any risks, so from that side we have had a perfect day.
23. 01. 2015 16:32 CET 8 (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): damaged left rear wheel
23. 01. 2015 16:31 CET 8 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): It’s ok, I enjoy every stage, I just do my best and get use to it.
23. 01. 2015 16:30 CET 8 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The conditions are very tricky, very dirty at the end of the stage but I am happy.
23. 01. 2015 16:30 CET 8 (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): is going slowly
23. 01. 2015 16:28 CET 8 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Maybe would be better with winter tyres, it was very slippery in the last few kilometres. Happy that we finish hits day.
23. 01. 2015 16:28 CET 8 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): A bit of a frustrating afternoon with the tyre choices we made. Apart from a spin on Stage 6 it has been ok.
23. 01. 2015 16:25 CET 8 (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): problems with suspension
23. 01. 2015 16:23 CET 8 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): On the last stages we had a good tyre choice. On this last stage I enjoyed a bit more. We have to keep in mind now that we have to go the finish. I do not know all about the stages and I have learned a lot today and yesterday.
23. 01. 2015 16:22 CET 8 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It has been a really enjoyable day, unfortunately the sun has not been so much on the stages. Some place there is snow on the road, and other places there is ice and I am looking forward to sleep a good night. I enjoy that last stage.
23. 01. 2015 16:22 CET 8 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): You never know what is the correct tyre choice, but I think it was okay for us. A clean stage for us. A lot of sideways driving, it was quite fun.
23. 01. 2015 16:20 CET 8 (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): was out of road
23. 01. 2015 16:17 CET 8 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We have massive moment in high speed, we went off and then thanks to spectators we came back on. Then on another junction at high speed, I hit a tree and got a puncture, so I drive 10 kilometres with a puncture.
23. 01. 2015 16:13 CET 8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I had no idea that I was in the lead. Let's wait and see. The tyres were not ideal for here, but it's all I had.
23. 01. 2015 16:12 CET 8 (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): stoped in stage
23. 01. 2015 16:09 CET 8 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): The afternoon certainly went better than the morning. There's a lot of movement in these winter tyres, but we are improving.
23. 01. 2015 15:59 CET 8 (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): stopped to change the puncture
23. 01. 2015 15:57 CET 8 (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): was out of road again
23. 01. 2015 15:56 CET 8 (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): puncture
23. 01. 2015 15:55 CET 8 (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): was out of road
23. 01. 2015 19:02 CET 7 flash info (97 - Vatanen Max / Renucci Jacques-Julien): Nice stage. Dirtier than this morning.
23. 01. 2015 19:02 CET 7 flash info (19 - Raoux Jean-Michel / Escartefigue Thomas): We didn’t push enough, Burri overtook us and is still ahead.
23. 01. 2015 19:02 CET 7 flash info (73 - Margaillan Matthieu / Margaillan Mathilde): It was slippery, we made some mistakes at first but I improved.

23. 01. 2015 19:01 CET 7 flash info (27 - Lo Fiego Fabiano / Mezy Damien): We gained some time, we are happy.
23. 01. 2015 19:01 CET 7 flash info (25 - Burri Olivier / Gordon Fabrice): We were able to fix the clutch. We are back on tracks.
23. 01. 2015 19:01 CET 7 flash info (22 - Duez Marc / Vyncke Steven): When we have some grip we have to push because we don’t know how long it will be this way.
23. 01. 2015 19:00 CET 7 flash info (36 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): It’s horrible, nothing is right.
23. 01. 2015 19:00 CET 7 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / Giraudet Denis): It is rallycross, it’s a major turn after Dakar.
23. 01. 2015 19:00 CET 7 (54 - McKenna Daniel / Grennan Andrew): problems with gearbox
23. 01. 2015 18:59 CET 7 (57 - Rossel Yohan / Fulcrand Benoît): puncture
23. 01. 2015 18:59 CET 7 flash info (84 - Consani Stéphane / Vilmot Maxime): It’s the first time we don’t face any issues in a stage. We were able to push a little.
23. 01. 2015 18:59 CET 7 flash info (20 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): The first km were terrible, I couldn’t find the grip.
23. 01. 2015 18:58 CET 7 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): We tried slick and winter crossed, obviously it wasn’t the right choice.
23. 01. 2015 18:58 CET 7 flash info (60 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): Better than on the first loop, more mud, less black ice.
23. 01. 2015 18:58 CET 7 flash info (40 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): I did a good time compared to this morning. I’m getting better, the rally is quite long.
23. 01. 2015 18:58 CET 7 flash info (41 - Kremer Armin / Wicha Klaus): Car is ok but it is difficult to drive in such conditions.
23. 01. 2015 18:57 CET 7 flash info (33 - Giordano Quentin / Sarreaud Valentin): We had a hit, punctured a tyre and broke a front shock absorber.
23. 01. 2015 18:57 CET 7 flash info (36 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): We overtook the contestant in front of us.
23. 01. 2015 18:57 CET 7 flash info (34 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I think I was better than this morning.

23. 01. 2015 15:56 CET 7 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): Difficult, I thought I had a good stage, but the time is not great. I lost 5 seconds in a hairpin. Very slippery, I pushed really hard.
23. 01. 2015 15:54 CET 7 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It is always tricky. I think we had a good tyre, we had a comfortable speed so it was ok.
23. 01. 2015 15:53 CET 7 (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): spun
23. 01. 2015 15:52 CET 7 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): I went straight so I had to reverse, but it was ok.
23. 01. 2015 15:49 CET 7 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was good. A little but better than the stage before. I put 2 slicks for this stage.
23. 01. 2015 15:47 CET 7 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It was much dryer than the stage before, but I am still happy with the tyre, I can trust the tyre, I am happy with the choice.
23. 01. 2015 15:45 CET 7 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): With 2 snow and 2 stud tyres on the car, although there was very little ice and the road was fairly clean. Not a great stage.
23. 01. 2015 15:44 CET 7 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Very dirty, but we were on a different tyre choice. I have not done much testing with these tyre choices. The experience is new, but I am happy with the experience, it is very very muddy, but I am happy.
23. 01. 2015 15:43 CET 7 (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): wsa out of road
23. 01. 2015 15:42 CET 7 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): It is not so bad, still a lot of spectators. I should be faster as it is like home.
23. 01. 2015 15:40 CET 7 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had a clean run and my tyre choice worked well for this one, so I must be pleased with this. I want to get the feeling and take no risk.
23. 01. 2015 15:37 CET 7 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It was ok. A little tricky as there was so much mud in the road, a little bit snow and ice. A clean stage for us, try not take risk. We take 2 slicks and 2 snow tyres.
23. 01. 2015 15:37 CET 7 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I was expecting a little bit better conditions. In the beginning it was snowing a little bit. Towards the end the mud places started to freeze again. I was running with the snow tyre with studs all the time , I felt more comfortable with this.
23. 01. 2015 15:34 CET 7 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Stage was very slippery. I have not done a good tyre choice, using crossed super soft with the studded tyre.
23. 01. 2015 15:32 CET 7 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Very slippery, a lot of mud and snow. The conditions were more complicated now that the first loop. The temperature is very cold, we are using snow tyres but they are moving a lot so you have to watch out.
23. 01. 2015 15:32 CET 7 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): Very slippery and dirty, and lots of mud about, but it's the first stage I've enjoyed driving today.
23. 01. 2015 18:54 CET 6 flash info (51 - Dalmasso Charlotte / Delon Marine): I don’t know how they do it, it’s really tough to drive in the fog.
23. 01. 2015 18:53 CET 6 (78 - Foulon Alain / Delarche Gilles): problems with front right wheel
23. 01. 2015 18:53 CET 6 flash info (22 - Duez Marc / Vyncke Steven): Wrong tyre choice.
23. 01. 2015 18:53 CET 6 (54 - McKenna Daniel / Grennan Andrew): problems with gearbox
23. 01. 2015 18:52 CET 6 flash info (20 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): Better than yesterday, I have less technical issues.
23. 01. 2015 18:52 CET 6 flash info (40 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): Less grip than this morning and the fog was more dense.
23. 01. 2015 17:52 CET 6 retired (117 - Brunier Stéphane / Ferre Sylvain): retired in SS 6
23. 01. 2015 17:51 CET 6 (17 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): was out of road
23. 01. 2015 15:19 CET 6 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): I told to Ogier before the stage that I thought it was better to take the studded tyres here. That I had the wrong ones. I was a little surprised by the amount of snow and ice in there. But in the end it was ok for us. A decent time.
23. 01. 2015 15:17 CET 6 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Snow tyres crossed. Difficult today, still very snowy and very slippery. I was surprised how snowy it was.
23. 01. 2015 15:15 CET 6 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): Scary in there, I can tell you. I am quite happy, I have to learn this with these conditions and this type of tyre.
23. 01. 2015 15:13 CET 6 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I am driving on used studded tyres, I want to save new ones for tomorrow.
23. 01. 2015 15:11 CET 6 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Absolutely, I am happy with tyre choice (full studs). The conditions were trickiest in the morning with the fog and you could not see the road. I am happy, it was the safe choice.
23. 01. 2015 15:10 CET 6 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We had a spin in there which was completely unnecessary. Something coming up too fast and I panicked and grabbed the handbrake.
23. 01. 2015 15:06 CET 6 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): In the end you just had to go on your own judgement, things are changing all the time.
23. 01. 2015 15:05 CET 6 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was wrong information we had, I do not know what happened between the two hours, but for me it was 60% ice. The slick tyre the car was unbalanced, on the cuts and ice the car was horrible to drive.
23. 01. 2015 15:03 CET 6 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Scary… It is scary, no studs in there is scary!
23. 01. 2015 15:02 CET 6 (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): spun
23. 01. 2015 15:01 CET 6 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It is tricky, with the fog now as well and the ice.
23. 01. 2015 15:00 CET 6 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I was a bit more confident on the stage than this morning. There was snowing in the beginning of the stage and there was a lot more ice than they say. I think it is the right tyre choice.
23. 01. 2015 14:57 CET 6 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I don’t know, I cannot speak on the radio now.
23. 01. 2015 14:56 CET 6 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): There is quite a lot of ice and snow, it is very slippery, so we took it quite steady.
23. 01. 2015 14:55 CET 6 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): We made it. We pushed quite a lot at the end, but on four snow tyres without studs it was difficult - especially at the start. On the next stage it should be a little drier.
23. 01. 2015 14:51 CET 6 Less ice and more snow comparing to first run.
23. 01. 2015 14:37 CET 6 Heavy fog on the stage.
23. 01. 2015 18:49 CET 5 flash info (81 - Vialle Lilian / Ghirardello Manuel): It’s always complicated to balance between the dry and iced parts. But we are having fun, maybe a little too much and we are losing time.
23. 01. 2015 18:49 CET 5 flash info (99 - Taormina Jean-Luc / Sery Claude): After a somersault, the spectators helped us get back on the wheels and we were able to keep on without complications.
23. 01. 2015 18:49 CET 5 flash info (74 - Carret Claude / Mathias Olivier): We made a spin and got stuck in a snow wall. The spectators helped us to get out of there.
23. 01. 2015 18:48 CET 5 flash info (28 - Silva Marco / Pina Giovanni): The powersteering is broken, I am struggling.
23. 01. 2015 18:48 CET 5 flash info (26 - Re Felice / Bariani Mara): We have break issues, they get stuck at the rear of the car.
23. 01. 2015 18:48 CET 5 flash info (19 - Raoux Jean-Michel / Escartefigue Thomas): It’s going to be better and better, the car is now perfectly tuned.
23. 01. 2015 18:47 CET 5 flash info (73 - Margaillan Matthieu / Margaillan Mathilde): I have problem with the rear right door. Otherwise, everything is fine.
23. 01. 2015 18:47 CET 5 flash info (27 - Lo Fiego Fabiano / Mezy Damien): I made a spin in the uphill, it cooled me down.
23. 01. 2015 18:46 CET 5 flash info (25 - Burri Olivier / Gordon Fabrice): The clutch slips, I think it is about to break. We were extremely slowed down by number 51 even if they started far in front of us.
23. 01. 2015 18:46 CET 5 flash info (57 - Rossel Yohan / Fulcrand Benoît): Since yesterday, this is the only stage we did well on. We punctured a tyre twice this morning, I don’t understand how the tyres can get punctured so easily and the car isn’t perfect.
23. 01. 2015 18:46 CET 5 flash info (22 - Duez Marc / Vyncke Steven): It is very difficult, our studs are almost gone but we have to deal with it. It is really great to drive this car, the drift enables us to do awesome lines.
23. 01. 2015 18:45 CET 5 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / Giraudet Denis): I stalled in a hairpin bend, I had troubles restarting the engine, the spectators had to push the car.
23. 01. 2015 18:45 CET 5 flash info (54 - McKenna Daniel / Grennan Andrew): We have issues with the gearbox and can’t change it.
23. 01. 2015 18:45 CET 5 flash info (61 - Riedemann Christian / Wenzel Michael): The tyres are worn out, it was very slippery but we are having fun.
23. 01. 2015 18:44 CET 5 flash info (53 - Veiby Ole Christian / Jæger Anders): We made a spin in the first part of the stage. We lost at least 10 to 15 seconds.
23. 01. 2015 18:43 CET 5 flash info (20 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): It is too hard. We can’t rest as even in the straight portions we have to handle the car. I wasn’t wide awake in SS3.
23. 01. 2015 18:43 CET 5 flash info (58 - Folb Terry / Le Floch Franck): First loop was nice, we are happy, we are getting used to the car.
23. 01. 2015 18:43 CET 5 flash info (60 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): We have to be careful as the tyres are in their 3rd stage.
23. 01. 2015 18:43 CET 5 flash info (40 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): I’m doing my best and being cautious.
23. 01. 2015 18:42 CET 5 flash info (33 - Giordano Quentin / Sarreaud Valentin): My gearbox display kept changing, I did not know in which gearbox ratio I stood, but overall it’s fine.
23. 01. 2015 18:32 CET 5 (74 - Carret Claude / Mathias Olivier): was out of road
23. 01. 2015 18:30 CET 5 (27 - Lo Fiego Fabiano / Mezy Damien): spun
23. 01. 2015 18:25 CET 5 (53 - Veiby Ole Christian / Jæger Anders): spun
23. 01. 2015 14:26 CET 5 retired (72 - Latil Nicolas / Roche Romain): retired in SS 5
23. 01. 2015 12:07 CET 5 flash info (32 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): I have snow tyres with studs and maybe it would have been better without. For the moment it's a good moring, I will push a little more this afternoon.
23. 01. 2015 11:52 CET 5 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It's very, very muddy. You need to takes some risks not to losing too much time. Conditions are difficult.
23. 01. 2015 11:51 CET 5 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It was really tricky and really challenging. Had a good rhythm and so far it has been alright, I have enjoyed it a lot.
23. 01. 2015 11:49 CET 5 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): Now it has melted a little bit. I try my best and the gravel crew try their best.
23. 01. 2015 11:47 CET 5 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Ok, but very dirty places, I do not take a good feeling with these conditions. All the stage was gravel and some icy patches, but I do not take a good feel with the pace notes.
23. 01. 2015 11:47 CET 5 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): You can enjoy the driving, but it is tricky as you are driving on the dry conditions with the studs. Conditions are changing very often and I think it will be the same for the afternoon. But I am happy with the clean run.
23. 01. 2015 11:43 CET 5 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We just touched a bank in a slippery section. I don’t think we had any studs left for this section. The whole of the loop has not been too bad.
23. 01. 2015 11:43 CET 5 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Good notes from the safety crew. The road is incredibly dirty in places. Still difficult to find a rhythm. Some places are bone dry and you are driving on the studded tyres. I am trying to stay disciplined.
23. 01. 2015 11:40 CET 5 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Definitely worse, it is getting horrible towards the end of the stage. Sometimes the spectators are putting snow on the road, so I took it really steady.
23. 01. 2015 11:37 CET 5 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): You have to be happy for every stage you get through… You try to go straight but you end up going sideways. When you see a lot of spectators, you know it is going to be sideways so you can prepare for it.
23. 01. 2015 11:35 CET 5 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): I am not so sure about the last stage, we should have gone with snow tyres without studs. We continue like this.
23. 01. 2015 11:33 CET 5 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was messy, I had to take it carefully, very messy in some places. In some places the snow had come into the road. I had a quite smooth run and concentrating on my tactics.
23. 01. 2015 11:30 CET 5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We tried to make some cuts and put some snow on the road for the cars behind, we try to make an advantage. I did some small mistake but not so bad.
23. 01. 2015 11:29 CET 5 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): It was ok, it is very difficult condition, but you have to get use to it. We lost all the studs in the second stage so where ever there was ice and snow it was difficult.
23. 01. 2015 11:28 CET 5 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): I needed more confidence to go fast in these conditions. It's getting better now and should improve more in the afternoon.
23. 01. 2015 18:12 CET 4 flash info (81 - Vialle Lilian / Ghirardello Manuel): I am not running smooth. On the ice it’s ok, but I am very bad on dry road.
23. 01. 2015 18:12 CET 4 flash info (85 - Arnaud Christophe / Arnaud Stéphane): It is an ordeal, I have no feeling with the car, I made a spin in a roadside and I had to back out in the middle of the road.
23. 01. 2015 18:12 CET 4 flash info (100 - Metiffiot Stéphane / Metiffiot Pierre André): I check the notes for the second loop, I’ll try to push.
23. 01. 2015 18:11 CET 4 flash info (72 - Latil Nicolas / Roche Romain): I chose four studded tyres in order to keep the good balance of the car.
23. 01. 2015 18:11 CET 4 flash info (27 - Lo Fiego Fabiano / Mezy Damien): I have troubles with the brakes, the pedal is gunned to the floor.
23. 01. 2015 18:11 CET 4 flash info (25 - Burri Olivier / Gordon Fabrice): I was bothered by a contestant in front of me. The clutch is broken.
23. 01. 2015 18:11 CET 4 (84 - Consani Stéphane / Vilmot Maxime): puncture
23. 01. 2015 18:10 CET 4 (57 - Rossel Yohan / Fulcrand Benoît): puncture
23. 01. 2015 18:10 CET 4 flash info (56 - Re Alessandro / Ciucci Giacomo): There is a lot of mud and the roadsides are very dirty.
23. 01. 2015 18:10 CET 4 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / Giraudet Denis): We lost time in this one.
23. 01. 2015 18:10 CET 4 flash info (51 - Dalmasso Charlotte / Delon Marine): I enjoyed this SS contrary to the previous one.
23. 01. 2015 18:09 CET 4 (52 - Tempestini Simone / Chiarcossi Matteo): puncture
23. 01. 2015 18:09 CET 4 flash info (53 - Veiby Ole Christian / Jæger Anders): We learn as we go.
23. 01. 2015 18:09 CET 4 flash info (20 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): I rested in the SS3. Now my gear box grips on first gear.
23. 01. 2015 18:09 CET 4 flash info (58 - Folb Terry / Le Floch Franck): We made the right decision.
23. 01. 2015 18:09 CET 4 flash info (60 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): We drive according to the notes, we are going to correct some things for this afternoon’s loop.
23. 01. 2015 18:08 CET 4 flash info (40 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): Very bad conditions in the roadsides. I wonder what the second loop is going to be like.
23. 01. 2015 18:08 CET 4 flash info (41 - Kremer Armin / Wicha Klaus): I had fog in this loop also.
23. 01. 2015 18:08 CET 4 flash info (36 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): The roadsides are very dirty, we try to avoid mistakes.
23. 01. 2015 18:07 CET 4 flash info (33 - Giordano Quentin / Sarreaud Valentin): I was more at ease on this stage. During SS3 I did not dare to push because of the fog.
23. 01. 2015 18:07 CET 4 flash info (32 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): The rhythm is up and down, changing between dry and black ice.
23. 01. 2015 12:08 CET 4 (34 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): puncture
23. 01. 2015 11:14 CET 4 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It was ok. I tried to push hard again, but there was mud on the road like yesterday night. I pushed hard, I did a good stage.
23. 01. 2015 11:14 CET 4 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It was good stage for me, tricky as always. Another relaxing stage for us.
23. 01. 2015 11:14 CET 4 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): It’s ok, I try my best, it was not easy. Very difficult, I have to learn to drive with these stud tyres on tarmac.
23. 01. 2015 11:12 CET 4 (17 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): stopped in stage, changing puncture
23. 01. 2015 11:07 CET 4 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Not bad. I thought my time was better. Everything with the car was ok.
23. 01. 2015 11:07 CET 4 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Quite ok, I drive very carefully, maybe I can go faster in some places, but clean stage for me.
23. 01. 2015 11:06 CET 4 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was tricky, very good grip in some places and not in others. Some of the cars are cutting in front, so it was quite messy.
23. 01. 2015 11:01 CET 4 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I had a better rhythm. Still very tricky, a lot of mud being pulled out. On some blind corners there is some mud on the exit so very tricky. It is dry tarmac so it is difficult for the studs.
23. 01. 2015 11:00 CET 4 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Grip was better but it still tricky and it has changed a lot compare to the recces. But it was ok.
23. 01. 2015 11:00 CET 4 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Difficult. Quite ok, the speed is not good enough, maybe not perfect on the tyres, tried to save a little bit as there was quite a lot of tarmac, but I have no more studs.
23. 01. 2015 10:56 CET 4 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Not very good stage, the rhythm was terrible. We try to save some studs for the next stage.
23. 01. 2015 10:54 CET 4 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): A lot better than the first one, I did not have good feeling in the first one, I did not feel comfortable so I drove it very carefully.
23. 01. 2015 10:54 CET 4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was difficult, as I did not manage to keep the studs, it was very slippery.
23. 01. 2015 10:51 CET 4 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Everything ok, very slippery, very difficult conditions.
23. 01. 2015 10:50 CET 4 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): I have troubles finding the grip.
23. 01. 2015 13:17 CET 3 flash info (29 - Vukasovic Laurent / Groux Steve): I am a bit too cautious, but it’s not a problem since this is a long rally.
23. 01. 2015 13:16 CET 3 flash info (97 - Vatanen Max / Renucci Jacques-Julien): I am very happy with this stage and satisfied with my time since I am in R2.
23. 01. 2015 13:16 CET 3 flash info (81 - Vialle Lilian / Ghirardello Manuel): It is hard to get used to the inequalities of the road and the grip differences.
23. 01. 2015 13:16 CET 3 flash info (19 - Raoux Jean-Michel / Escartefigue Thomas): This stage was complicated and very slippery. We have to be cautious. We were bothered by the other competitors’ mud projections on the road.
23. 01. 2015 13:16 CET 3 flash info (19 - Raoux Jean-Michel / Escartefigue Thomas): This stage was complicated and very slippery. We have to be cautious. We were bothered by the other competitors’ mud projections on the road.
23. 01. 2015 13:15 CET 3 flash info (73 - Margaillan Matthieu / Margaillan Mathilde): It is hard to drive the car with two studs and two snow tyres.
23. 01. 2015 13:15 CET 3 (27 - Lo Fiego Fabiano / Mezy Damien): puncture
23. 01. 2015 13:15 CET 3 flash info (25 - Burri Olivier / Gordon Fabrice): My rhythm hasn’t been good since the beginning; this stage was especially difficult for us.
23. 01. 2015 13:14 CET 3 flash info (51 - Dalmasso Charlotte / Delon Marine): It was very difficult, we had a scare as it was really tricky.
23. 01. 2015 13:14 CET 3 flash info (20 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): This stage was delightful, it was perfect.
23. 01. 2015 13:14 CET 3 flash info (43 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): I’m really happy with my time.
23. 01. 2015 13:14 CET 3 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I liked this stage.
23. 01. 2015 13:13 CET 3 flash info (40 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): Besides the light snowfall at the beginning of the stage, the loop went well.
23. 01. 2015 13:13 CET 3 flash info (36 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): My timing is good, I didn’t take too much risks in the fog as the black ice was not visible.
23. 01. 2015 13:12 CET 3 flash info (33 - Giordano Quentin / Sarreaud Valentin): I did not dare go wild in the fog.
23. 01. 2015 12:35 CET 3 retired (89 - Di Luigi Giovanni / Diodato Barbara): retired before SS 3
23. 01. 2015 10:35 CET 3 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It was not easy. We have a it if fog in the stage. You have to rely 100% on the notes. But ok, we had no mistake, some mud in some place but I think the time is not so bad. I was happy, I pushed hard.
23. 01. 2015 10:35 CET 3 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It is really crazy how tricky it is. Just changing all the time. I am still having my good rythmn and enjoying it so it is good for us.
23. 01. 2015 10:33 CET 3 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): It was a lot of fog in there. I am not so use to the fog but everything else is ok.
23. 01. 2015 10:32 CET 3 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It was very difficult with the stage, difficult to see the road, big fog, very slippery condition. I drive really bad.
23. 01. 2015 10:30 CET 3 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Ok, no problem for us, we just try to stay on the road as the conditions are really tricky. Clean drive on this stage. The fog at the beginning knocked my confidence at bit. Happy to get through.
23. 01. 2015 10:28 CET 3 flash info (5 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was ok, I did not feel that we were too wild. Just tried to be clean and tidy. The right tyre choice too, I think.
23. 01. 2015 10:25 CET 3 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I took my own rhythm, with the fog it was so difficult. You have to be disciplined. Some light snow in there as well as the fog, so visibility wasn't great.
23. 01. 2015 10:24 CET 3 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Very tricky, some corners are getting more and more slippy, some others may be a little better. My aim is to finish his rally so I took it steady.
23. 01. 2015 10:24 CET 3 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): All I can say is slicks is not the correct choice. I was happy I was on the tyres I am on. Just a difficult stage again. There is some fog.
23. 01. 2015 10:22 CET 3 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): What a stage! I thought today was going to get easier. So difficult, so much ice. More ice than I expected also the fog, no visibility at all. I played it safe.
23. 01. 2015 10:21 CET 3 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I took it very steady, it is a long rally and conditions were very demanding on this stage. There was a lot of black ice on this stage. I would rather lose on this stage as there are good stages to come.
23. 01. 2015 10:19 CET 3 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I took it very steady. Very demanding conditions and it's a long rally. Lots of black ice and fog here. No reason to take any kind of risk. There are good stages to come.
23. 01. 2015 10:18 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Ok, but I expect to lose time on this one, the condition will get better for sure. Not too bad stage, I could have taken more risk. Were studs the right tyre choice? I'll tell you at the end of the loop.
23. 01. 2015 10:15 CET 3 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): All ok, slippery. We did have all four stud tyres, so was much more slippery that expected. The ice crew say only 2 kilometres of ice, we have 10 kilometres of ice. And fog too. We took it cautiously.
23. 01. 2015 10:15 CET 3 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): Very difficult. I didn't take any risks. Very slippery at beginning and some thick fog too. After yesterday I decided to build experience and confidence.
23. 01. 2015 10:08 CET 3 Most of stage is covered by ice.
23. 01. 2015 01:39 CET 2 flash info (91 - Galleano Yannick / Mallet Christophe): We had some electrical shut down but it came back.
23. 01. 2015 01:39 CET 2 flash info (105 - Cretien Jeremy / Rouchouze Xavier): Very tricky stage, with a lot of grip modifications but we are here.
23. 01. 2015 01:39 CET 2 flash info (103 - Picchioni Florian / Borel Thierry): It is very hard, we have no grip.
23. 01. 2015 01:38 CET 2 flash info (100 - Metiffiot Stéphane / Metiffiot Pierre André): It’s fine, I want to bring the “Lady” back to Gap.
23. 01. 2015 01:38 CET 2 flash info (93 - Ressegaire Nicolas / Arnaud Jonathan): It was complicated; we had to remain on the tracks.
23. 01. 2015 01:38 CET 2 (71 - Marchetti Alberto / Scalmani Mario): problems with brakes
23. 01. 2015 01:37 CET 2 flash info (80 - Sias Franck / Gastinel Jean-François): I don’t think my timing is very good but at least we had fun!
23. 01. 2015 01:37 CET 2 flash info (78 - Foulon Alain / Delarche Gilles): It was ok, as good as possible.
23. 01. 2015 01:37 CET 2 (73 - Margaillan Matthieu / Margaillan Mathilde): spun two times
23. 01. 2015 01:37 CET 2 flash info (74 - Carret Claude / Mathias Olivier): Everything is alright; I wasn’t even overtaken by Margaillan.
23. 01. 2015 01:36 CET 2 flash info (38 - Vallario Marco / Di Lorenzo Manuela): I have an issue with the anti-lag system.
23. 01. 2015 01:36 CET 2 flash info (72 - Latil Nicolas / Roche Romain): My motor break engine is gone.

23. 01. 2015 01:35 CET 2 flash info (25 - Burri Olivier / Gordon Fabrice): We had a temperature alert in the uphill, we could not use all the boost.
23. 01. 2015 01:35 CET 2 flash info (51 - Dalmasso Charlotte / Delon Marine): We drove very carefully as our light bar is broken.
23. 01. 2015 01:35 CET 2 flash info (19 - Raoux Jean-Michel / Escartefigue Thomas): It’s fine but I still don’t handle the car very well.
23. 01. 2015 01:34 CET 2 flash info (57 - Rossel Yohan / Fulcrand Benoît): We have studs; the rear axle must be a bit twisted.
23. 01. 2015 01:34 CET 2 flash info (84 - Consani Stéphane / Vilmot Maxime): I’m not in the right pace. I can’t balance my driving between the dry and iced portions.
23. 01. 2015 01:34 CET 2 flash info (58 - Folb Terry / Le Floch Franck): I wasn’t as good as I was in SS1, the road grip differences troubled me.
23. 01. 2015 01:34 CET 2 flash info (60 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): We hit in a turn, the rear axle is damaged.
23. 01. 2015 01:33 CET 2 (56 - Re Alessandro / Ciucci Giacomo): spun
23. 01. 2015 01:33 CET 2 flash info (53 - Veiby Ole Christian / Jæger Anders): We are satisfied to be here. We didn’t make any mistake. In Norway, we don’t run at night, for me this was a novelty.
23. 01. 2015 01:33 CET 2 flash info (59 - Lukács Kornél / Mesterházi Márk): We are happy as we didn’t make any mistake.
23. 01. 2015 01:32 CET 2 flash info (40 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): We are here, it’s all that counts. Tomorrow will be a very long day.
23. 01. 2015 01:32 CET 2 flash info (22 - Duez Marc / Vyncke Steven): I’m driving but I’m not piloting.
23. 01. 2015 01:31 CET 2 flash info (20 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): We had engine shut down all along the stage, I lost at least one minute. I even went down the Col in free wheel.
23. 01. 2015 01:31 CET 2 flash info (42 - Lategan Henk / White Barry): It was better than what we feared.
23. 01. 2015 01:31 CET 2 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / Giraudet Denis): We have a pressure problem on the front right tyre.
23. 01. 2015 01:31 CET 2 flash info (33 - Giordano Quentin / Sarreaud Valentin): I had troubles finding a good rhythm after the iced portion.
23. 01. 2015 01:30 CET 2 flash info (39 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): We were able to go flat out.
23. 01. 2015 01:30 CET 2 flash info (34 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It was difficult, I did not take any risk.
23. 01. 2015 01:29 CET 2 flash info (41 - Kremer Armin / Wicha Klaus): It was tricky and slippery.
23. 01. 2015 01:29 CET 2 (36 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): was out of road
23. 01. 2015 01:29 CET 2 flash info (17 - Protasov Yuriy / Cherepin Pavlo): Very difficult, it is my first time with this car.
23. 01. 2015 01:27 CET 2 (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Bernacchini Giovanni): spun
22. 01. 2015 23:44 CET 2 retired (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): technical problem - electric after SS 2
22. 01. 2015 23:43 CET 2 (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): stopped by police on road section, no lights
22. 01. 2015 22:36 CET 2 retired (35 - Serderidis Jourdan / Mergny William): accident in SS 2
22. 01. 2015 22:22 CET 2 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We had a problem, we spun and then we reverse and we lost the lights, we lose electricity. Then the car was switching off, switching off, but we are here.
22. 01. 2015 22:13 CET 2 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): It was ok, but a lot of gravel everywhere on the corner, gravel and mud everywhere so it was difficult. I had a good tyre choice for the first stage but it wasn't the best for the second. I passed two cars in there - I'm not sure who they were.
22. 01. 2015 22:10 CET 2 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It was tricky, it was changing a lot, the front cars pull a lot of gravel on the road. I think I have done a lot better today than I expect. I enjoyed it and try to get as much experience as possible. Bouffier, he has a crash into the trees.
22. 01. 2015 22:09 CET 2 retired (15 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): accident in SS 2
22. 01. 2015 22:08 CET 2 (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): stopped in stage, continue
22. 01. 2015 22:07 CET 2 (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): spun
22. 01. 2015 22:07 CET 2 (15 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): stopped in stage
22. 01. 2015 22:05 CET 2 flash info (14 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): It is ok, but I had four studded tyres so it was not so easy.
22. 01. 2015 22:03 CET 2 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I have snow tyre and for this stage it was not a good choice. It should be better with slick. There is a lot of gravel on the stage. I have a problem with lightpod.
22. 01. 2015 22:02 CET 2 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): It was ok for us. Quite clear, good tyre choice, we just finish these two stages and this was our aim.
22. 01. 2015 21:57 CET 2 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I had a good stage, there is a lot of gravel, the road is completely destroyed.
22. 01. 2015 21:57 CET 2 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Stage is very dangerous and I kept it in a safety pace. I am happy to be here as it is the first time I am at the end of the first day of Monte Carlo.
22. 01. 2015 21:55 CET 2 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Very difficult, so many surprises. Difficult to find a good rhythm. Not a good stage.
22. 01. 2015 21:54 CET 2 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): It was ok, I just playing it very carefully, so tricky… I take no risk and I lose a lot of time. We have two snow tyres and two studded tyre which I think was the correct choice. It is a long rally so I am just taking my time.
22. 01. 2015 21:52 CET 2 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Not so good, but we are here. Sometimes the boot was opening on the stage, that was not a good thing.
22. 01. 2015 21:52 CET 2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I am happy to be at the finish, the stage was difficult and I was surprised about the time of the first stage. I am first on the road and it is very difficult to drive like this. I have done a wrong tyre choice on the first stage, the snow tyre was the good choice in the first stage, not this stage.
22. 01. 2015 21:41 CET 2 Stage is mostly wet.
23. 01. 2015 10:51 CET 1 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): I had a big moment on the snow, I dinked right front wheel but it seems ok.
23. 01. 2015 02:05 CET 1 retired (87 - Reuche Laurent / Deriaz Jean): retired after SS 1
23. 01. 2015 00:08 CET 1 flash info (106 - Joly Florent / Melchiorri Pauline): It is very complicated for my second Monte Carlo.
23. 01. 2015 00:08 CET 1 flash info (94 - Baffoun Philippe / Sagetat Olivier): It is my co-pilot’s first Monte-Carlo; I had never driven on snow.
23. 01. 2015 00:08 CET 1 flash info (100 - Metiffiot Stéphane / Metiffiot Pierre André): It is a nice Monte Carlo. I had good sensations.
23. 01. 2015 00:07 CET 1 (79 - Mondet Jean-Noël / Thomas Laura): puncture
23. 01. 2015 00:07 CET 1 flash info (85 - Arnaud Christophe / Arnaud Stéphane): It’s my 9th Monte Carlo, I know the conditions but today, it was an ordeal.
23. 01. 2015 00:07 CET 1 flash info (28 - Silva Marco / Pina Giovanni): The car is unbalanced.
23. 01. 2015 00:06 CET 1 flash info (27 - Lo Fiego Fabiano / Mezy Damien): We have to understand how it works with studs, then it will be easier.
23. 01. 2015 00:06 CET 1 flash info (25 - Burri Olivier / Gordon Fabrice): The tyres are too hard, it’s not good.
23. 01. 2015 00:06 CET 1 flash info (72 - Latil Nicolas / Roche Romain): It is more about survival. I didn’t know what to do.
23. 01. 2015 00:06 CET 1 flash info (73 - Margaillan Matthieu / Margaillan Mathilde): We overtook the car in front of us. I made a spin while overtaking.
23. 01. 2015 00:05 CET 1 flash info (29 - Vukasovic Laurent / Groux Steve): It was amazing, I had never seen such conditions.
22. 01. 2015 23:32 CET 1 retired (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): retired after SS 1
22. 01. 2015 23:28 CET 1 flash info (60 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): My ice crew did not run the stage; they were blocked on the highway, I was very careful.
22. 01. 2015 23:27 CET 1 flash info (52 - Tempestini Simone / Chiarcossi Matteo): I did not have the right notes, the road is narrower because of the snow.
22. 01. 2015 23:27 CET 1 flash info (22 - Duez Marc / Vyncke Steven): It is more about survival, I can’t follow the pace.
22. 01. 2015 23:27 CET 1 flash info (20 - Delecour François / Savignoni Dominique): It is wonderful, very athletic, I like it this way! It is very slippery, I love it!
22. 01. 2015 23:27 CET 1 flash info (40 - Hirschi Jonathan / Landais Vincent): It was very difficult, I did not expect such conditions but I did not make any mistake.
22. 01. 2015 23:26 CET 1 flash info (23 - Dumas Romain / Giraudet Denis): I stalled twice, I was overtaken. We were late for service park, we could only change two tyres and we had to change the other two on the road.
22. 01. 2015 23:25 CET 1 flash info (33 - Giordano Quentin / Sarreaud Valentin): In a straight portion, I went off the road. It is my first stage with this car and I had never driven on snow.
22. 01. 2015 23:25 CET 1 flash info (43 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): I would never have imagined such a stage; I did my best to remain on the tracks.
22. 01. 2015 23:25 CET 1 flash info (36 - Maurin Julien / Klinger Nicolas): Almost full ice everywhere, little grip. I tried to drive very carefully. Not an easy one to start the rally. The engine stalled because of the gear, I’m glad I could keep on.
22. 01. 2015 23:21 CET 1 (54 - McKenna Daniel / Grennan Andrew): spun
22. 01. 2015 23:17 CET 1 (84 - Consani Stéphane / Vilmot Maxime): puncture

22. 01. 2015 21:37 CET 1 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): After four or five corners I found some snow and hit a big stone on the right rear. It was difficult to get the car through the stage. I don't know if we can continue tonight.
22. 01. 2015 21:37 CET 1 flash info (32 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): That was very difficult. We had a big moment a couple of kilometers before the finish.
22. 01. 2015 21:30 CET 1 flash info (34 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): was out of road again
22. 01. 2015 21:29 CET 1 flash info (18 - Chardonnet Sébastien / De La Haye Thibault): was out of road
22. 01. 2015 21:29 CET 1 (32 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Prévot Stéphane): was out of road
22. 01. 2015 21:25 CET 1 flash info (34 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): was out of road
22. 01. 2015 21:09 CET 1 flash info (4 - Loeb Sébastien / Elena Daniel): A lot of dry, humid, wet, it was completely full of ice everywhere. I say to Daniel, it feels like we are stopped in places. No information about splits, happy for this time.
22. 01. 2015 21:05 CET 1 flash info (16 - Kubica Robert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We have one moment, we hit on the braking there was a lot of ice, I could not down shift the gear so we went straight.
22. 01. 2015 21:03 CET 1 flash info (6 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Not easy, so difficult, but we did not have any moments. For me it is so difficult, but I feel so good to be back in a factory team. I just try to be as relaxed as possible.
22. 01. 2015 21:03 CET 1 flash info (15 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): I did not expect it was going to be so slippery. I have two moments and one I was very lucky. Happy to be here, but for the first stage it is very difficult.
22. 01. 2015 20:58 CET 1 flash info (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I lost time in the first split, I brake too late in a slippery place and I go straight. I stall the engine and it was difficult to go out of the ditch, I lost a lot of time.
22. 01. 2015 20:56 CET 1 flash info (21 - Prokop Martin / Tománek Jan): Difficult to explain how difficult it it is. Quite clean run, just hit a barrier or something on the side of the road, nothing serious. When you try to go faster you have no chance to slow down. It is completely frozen the road, everything is really slippy.
22. 01. 2015 20:55 CET 1 flash info (3 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Conditions are really tricky, but I am happy.
22. 01. 2015 20:54 CET 1 (8 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): was out of road, stalled engine
22. 01. 2015 20:52 CET 1 flash info (7 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Horrible to drive, it was my first time in those conditions. I really struggle a lot, I try to be not sliding a lot, very smooth. My aim is to go to the finish, I have to keep it very calm and safety.
22. 01. 2015 20:48 CET 1 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Andersson Jonas): Tricky, is probably the wrong word to use, they have not invented the word for this stage yet. I was relaxed, enjoyed the driving and tried to avoid the mistakes.
22. 01. 2015 20:46 CET 1 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Fløene Ola): Very tricky, I try to go with no risk, drive with a clever pace. Not easy at all. It is going to get better and better for sure for drivers following, we will do as good a job as we can from the front.
22. 01. 2015 20:44 CET 1 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): If we only lose 16 seconds this is not so bad. The conditions are very demanding, these conditions, you can lose minutes. So difficult to get the confidence, changing grip. I have never seen these conditions in Monte.
22. 01. 2015 20:44 CET 1 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Almost full ice everywhere. Quite little grip, but we try to start very carefully, not so much risk for us in this one. Not an easy one to start the rally. No doubt that you need studs.
22. 01. 2015 20:17 CET 1 Weather around Gap is dark, temperature around 0, surface is mixture of wet tarmac, ice and snow.
