23 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It's been such a perfect end to the season. I had nothing to lose. All this year I drove for the championship but here we had nothing to lose - we just went for the win, to see how fast we were. We challenged the four-time champion and we won fair and square in the same road conditions. It's just sad to see this team and the car come to an end. I will miss them. It's very sad.
20. 11. 2016 13:45
20. 11. 2016 03:45 CET
23 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): An enjoyable stage like all the others. I just tried to enjoy it. It's been an amazing year. Thanks so much to the the guys for everything, I will never forget it. Hopefully I'll see you again in Monte Carlo.
20. 11. 2016 13:40
20. 11. 2016 03:40 CET
23 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We had the speed all weekend and I'm happy to get this result. After some difficult times, this year we're doing great. We have shown that we are the guys to have in the team and we're looking forward to next year.
20. 11. 2016 13:38
20. 11. 2016 03:38 CET
23 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): A difficult weekend, we wanted more, but I'm focused now on the future and coming back stronger next year.
20. 11. 2016 13:36
20. 11. 2016 03:36 CET
23 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I drove it well. Fourth or fifth place are the same to me. Ok, I'm disappointed about the penalty on day one. I want to say thanks to the team and I'm looking forward to 2017.
20. 11. 2016 13:31
20. 11. 2016 03:31 CET
23 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): I'm glad to be back fighting with the guys ahead. A close rally. Next year? It's 2017.
20. 11. 2016 13:29
20. 11. 2016 03:29 CET
23 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): For sure its been a really nice year, working with Dmack tyres we made some big steps. We've had some nice wins but also some big losses together. I'm thankful - they've done a great job. Let's see what next year brings. I'm looking forward to it.
20. 11. 2016 13:24
20. 11. 2016 03:24 CET
23 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): Unlucky today, but ok, we get a point. A mix of happy and disappointed. Definitely you will see me again next year, for sure for 2-3 rallies.
20. 11. 2016 13:19
20. 11. 2016 03:19 CET
23 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): More difficult here than this morning. Not easy to find the grip. Maybe not enough the win the Power Stage but we had a try. And next year? Nothing at the moment but I hope to have something.
20. 11. 2016 13:17
20. 11. 2016 03:17 CET
23 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): The team deserves this - as do we. Ok, we've had some bad luck this year but we end with four wins in a row. Nothing is certain about next year - but I hope we will be back in a WRC car.
20. 11. 2016 12:55
20. 11. 2016 02:55 CET
22 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Really steady, no risks - in cruise mode. It will be a strange feeling driving the next stage - sad but at the same time a great result. Mixed emotions.
20. 11. 2016 12:54
20. 11. 2016 02:54 CET
22 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): All good. A bit more grip but still some slippery dust. Now the Power Stage and I'm going to enjoy my last ride in the Polo.
20. 11. 2016 12:54
20. 11. 2016 02:54 CET
22 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I've been a bit grumpy for the last few hours, but now I'm over it. I'll just try to enjoy my driving and give the fans something to watch. I'm going to put on a show on the final stage.
20. 11. 2016 12:39
20. 11. 2016 02:39 CET
22 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): A clean stage. No mistakes. I'm just managing the gap now. One stage to go and we are close to our objective. I don't need to push on the Power Stage. If it stays like this I get a podium and second place in the championship.
20. 11. 2016 12:36
20. 11. 2016 02:36 CET
22 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was ok, but in a couple of places we could have been faster. We will try to keep our fourth place. Will this time be enough? We'll see.
20. 11. 2016 12:31
20. 11. 2016 02:31 CET
22 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Ok but more slippery than I expected. It's a sandy surface. We're following the national rally cars and they leave different lines.
20. 11. 2016 12:31
20. 11. 2016 02:31 CET
22 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Very tricky. Inconsistent grip. Less grip than before I would say. I don't know how that's possible.
20. 11. 2016 12:30
20. 11. 2016 02:30 CET
22 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): Now we have to finish this rally. That's the priority. It would be stupid to try and fight Latvala on these stages.
20. 11. 2016 12:22
20. 11. 2016 02:22 CET
22 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Surprisingly slippery. Difficult to find the grip. Worse than this morning I'd say. Maybe it's the temperature but the road seems polished.

20. 11. 2016 03:18 CET
21 retired (69 - Coppin Adrian / Kelly Erin): retired after SS 21

20. 11. 2016 10:50
20. 11. 2016 00:50 CET
21 flash info (42 - Fuchs Nicolás / Mussano Fernando): Our car is missing rear windscreen. I think we lost it after a jump. There's a lot of dust in the car now - it's amazing.
20. 11. 2016 10:50
20. 11. 2016 00:50 CET
21 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Not so many kilometers to go, but as we saw unfortunately with Eric anything can happen. We don't need to take risks.
20. 11. 2016 10:41
20. 11. 2016 00:41 CET
21 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I've never driven so fast and felt so comfortable before. It brings a lot of confidence. Now I'm not driving crazy but setting good times. It's really coming together.
20. 11. 2016 10:37
20. 11. 2016 00:37 CET
21 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Now the battle is over but for sure we enjoyed the fight for two fantastic days. Andreas has done a good job. Ok, the rally is not over yet but if he wins it will be a well deserved victory.
20. 11. 2016 10:33
20. 11. 2016 00:33 CET
21 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I made a mistake and ran a bit wide. Nothing else to say.
20. 11. 2016 10:32
20. 11. 2016 00:32 CET
21 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Quite cautious here because I'm on the hard tyres. I have kept my soft tyres for the second loop so I have some good tyres to come.
20. 11. 2016 10:28
20. 11. 2016 00:28 CET
21 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The plan is to continue to try our best. The gap to Thierry ahead is big but anything can happen.
20. 11. 2016 10:25
20. 11. 2016 00:25 CET
21 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Not so nice to follow after your team-mate goes off, but we knew quite quickly that they were ok. I was surprised there were going so many normal cars to the stage.
20. 11. 2016 10:18
20. 11. 2016 00:18 CET
21 Stage continue.
20. 11. 2016 09:55
19. 11. 2016 23:55 CET
21 Stage is stopped because of crash st.no.6.

20. 11. 2016 09:53
19. 11. 2016 23:53 CET
21 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Very slippery on this one. Hopefully it will be cleaner on the repeat.
20. 11. 2016 09:51
19. 11. 2016 23:51 CET
21 (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): rolled
20. 11. 2016 09:51
19. 11. 2016 23:51 CET
21 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): The rear diff is broken and one of our dampers exploded too. I think we will lose our top 10 finish now.
20. 11. 2016 09:45
19. 11. 2016 23:45 CET
21 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The feeling is really, really good. I'm enjoying the driving. I can see no reason why we can't continue next year.
20. 11. 2016 10:19

19. 11. 2016 23:38 CET
20 flash info (34 - Serderidis Jourdan / Miclotte Fréderic): We lost the gearbox. We are stuck in second gear now.
20. 11. 2016 09:38
19. 11. 2016 23:38 CET
20 flash info (35 - Al-Suwaidi Khalid / Clarke Marshall): A spin in here. The stage is very slippery. Maybe we have the wrong tyres - I'm on the medium compound.
20. 11. 2016 09:37
19. 11. 2016 23:37 CET
20 flash info (33 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Not bad. In a slow mode now just to save the position. Very easy to make a mistake. We just drive to the finish now.
20. 11. 2016 09:37
19. 11. 2016 23:37 CET
20 flash info (42 - Fuchs Nicolás / Mussano Fernando): I go very carefully now, 80 per cent I think. Second place today would be a good result for me.
20. 11. 2016 09:37
19. 11. 2016 23:37 CET
20 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): All under control. I was very, very slow here, cruising in the bad places, avoiding the big rocks. I don't feel any pressure, I just want to finish - so I'm a bit tense, that's all.
20. 11. 2016 09:05
19. 11. 2016 23:05 CET
20 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We had a good stage. Not perfect, but I pushed hard. That was all we could do. It's not a comfortable lead though. I need full concentration right to the end, but I have confidence in this type of driving now. It's a special weekend.
20. 11. 2016 09:03
19. 11. 2016 23:03 CET
20 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I spun. It's ok but we lost maybe 15 seconds. That's part of the game.
20. 11. 2016 09:03
19. 11. 2016 23:03 CET
20 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): spun
20. 11. 2016 08:57
19. 11. 2016 22:57 CET
20 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Nothing to say. We went wide, touched a bank and pushed the tyre off the rim.
20. 11. 2016 08:57
19. 11. 2016 22:57 CET
20 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): All ok, but I'm on a hard and soft tyre mix because I need to save some for the Power stage. So I'm losing traction here. With all soft tyres I could be much quicker.
20. 11. 2016 08:57
19. 11. 2016 22:57 CET
20 (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): damaged wheel
20. 11. 2016 08:50
19. 11. 2016 22:50 CET
20 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Much better this time.
20. 11. 2016 08:50
19. 11. 2016 22:50 CET
20 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): A good stage but there's a lot of dust coming inside the car and I struggled to see in some places. It's not just dust from the cars ahead - it's my own dust that's causing problems.
20. 11. 2016 08:50
19. 11. 2016 22:50 CET
20 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I had a little problem with my brakes - the same overheating issue as yesterday - but all okay. Now I just want to get through the rally and complete my season.
20. 11. 2016 08:49
19. 11. 2016 22:49 CET
20 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Crazy dust. We must have been catching Lorenzo - it was blind all the time. We tried a mixed tyre setup but it's hard to say how that worked.
20. 11. 2016 08:49
19. 11. 2016 22:49 CET
20 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): We have a broken rear diff. Just front-wheel drive now. Nothing we can do.
20. 11. 2016 08:27
19. 11. 2016 22:27 CET
20 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): A good run overall. A nice stage, but some very slippery sections after the 20 km point, very dusty there.
20. 11. 2016 08:26
19. 11. 2016 22:26 CET
19 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We are attacking at the maximum. Absolutely flat out. No mistakes. Now we must continue.
20. 11. 2016 08:23
19. 11. 2016 22:23 CET
19 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's good to be in front of Hayden. Of course I want to grab the win - that's what I'm here for - but for now it's good to stay ahead of the Hyundai.
20. 11. 2016 08:23
19. 11. 2016 22:23 CET
19 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): We're not going to go down without trying. The guys behind are going to be pushing and so was I. Ok, probably over-driving a bit in there, but these things happen when you try.
20. 11. 2016 08:17
19. 11. 2016 22:17 CET
19 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had a spin in a very fast section. There was so much dust in the car and I was distracted. I stalled the engine and it would not restart straight away. That cost me about 10 sec I think.
20. 11. 2016 08:17
19. 11. 2016 22:17 CET
19 (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): spun
20. 11. 2016 08:11
19. 11. 2016 22:11 CET
19 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I had no grip at all and in the fast places I was not able to be fast enough. We'll try to do better in the next one.
20. 11. 2016 08:08
19. 11. 2016 22:08 CET
19 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Quite ok. One mistake in there, when my pace notes were far too fast on one corner. Otherwise a good start to the day.
20. 11. 2016 08:04
19. 11. 2016 22:04 CET
19 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): My notes are not very good that's why I was very careful on this first pass. There was a lot of dust during the recce.
20. 11. 2016 07:59
19. 11. 2016 21:59 CET
19 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): A bit dusty but nothing too bad, The grip was quite ok. It's really fast between the trees. A bit nasty in places.
20. 11. 2016 07:59
19. 11. 2016 21:59 CET
19 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): There was a lot of dust in there, I'm quite scared about the 30km stage.
20. 11. 2016 07:58
19. 11. 2016 21:58 CET
19 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I enjoyed it. Not so bad. I expected worse but the grip wasn't so bad. For sure, early in the corner the car wants to go more sideways but the exits are fine.
20. 11. 2016 07:58
19. 11. 2016 21:58 CET
19 WRC and WRC2 cars will start with 4-minutes gaps today due to the dust.

19. 11. 2016 15:12
19. 11. 2016 05:12 CET
16 flash info (42 - Fuchs Nicolás / Mussano Fernando): Better than the morning, I have better pace notes now. I have to finish the rally now.
19. 11. 2016 15:10
19. 11. 2016 05:10 CET
16 flash info (33 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): This one not bad. Our problem before means we have lost out in the battle for second but that's rally. I keep trying.
19. 11. 2016 15:10
19. 11. 2016 05:10 CET
16 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): No problems. Everything is fine. I was expecting it to be harder. But it's not.
19. 11. 2016 15:05
19. 11. 2016 05:05 CET
16 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): We broke the rear anti-roll bar on the last stage so we didn't have that here. It was quite slippery and I was struggling with the grip. We don't have a lot of tyre left.
19. 11. 2016 15:01
19. 11. 2016 05:01 CET
16 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Quite strange, I had no brakes - nothing at all for the first 4km. Very scary.
19. 11. 2016 14:57
19. 11. 2016 04:57 CET
16 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): A clean stage. No worries. All good. Still driving.
19. 11. 2016 14:55
19. 11. 2016 04:55 CET
16 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Yeah. It was okay. I changed the settings back before the stage but no improvement.
19. 11. 2016 14:53
19. 11. 2016 04:53 CET
16 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The rear-right tyre has nothing, I think all the tread is gone. With these slicks I knew we'd lose time, so I'm actually quite satisfied.
19. 11. 2016 14:50
19. 11. 2016 04:50 CET
16 (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Stopped on the road section to SS17 working on the car.
19. 11. 2016 14:49
19. 11. 2016 04:49 CET
16 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): My tyres are completely destroyed and the feeling was really, really bad. In the first corner I went off a little bit. Let's see how the time compares with Mads
19. 11. 2016 14:48
19. 11. 2016 04:48 CET
16 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I'm trying to drive it really straight. Our tyres are worse than the others I think. My tyre management is better than before but still there's more to do. Andreas' problem keeps things tight. We won't give up until the end of the Power Stage.
19. 11. 2016 14:44
19. 11. 2016 04:44 CET
16 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): The clutch pedal and brake pedal are pushing down together.
19. 11. 2016 14:40
19. 11. 2016 04:40 CET
16 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): A good day for us. We are doing pretty well. A wrong tyre choice this morning, which cost us in the battle for third, but a good improvement here.
19. 11. 2016 14:38
19. 11. 2016 04:38 CET
16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Andreas is fast, he can hold his position, I've been trying everything I can since the beginning of the rally. I can't do more than that.

19. 11. 2016 14:25
19. 11. 2016 04:25 CET
15 flash info (33 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): (Front-right tyre is pushed off the rim) That's not a problem, it happened on the road, but we got a right-rear puncture here and we had to drive 6km on it.
19. 11. 2016 14:21
19. 11. 2016 04:21 CET
15 (33 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Puncture

19. 11. 2016 04:18 CET
15 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I'm keeping a cool head. I liked this stage, the rhythm was good - not on and off the brakes.
19. 11. 2016 14:17
19. 11. 2016 04:17 CET
15 (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): His car leaves the stage end trailing a piece of right-rear suspension
19. 11. 2016 14:17
19. 11. 2016 04:17 CET
15 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): Exhausting. Very hot. 15km from the end I felt a lack of power, or maybe no traction.
19. 11. 2016 14:12
19. 11. 2016 04:12 CET
15 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): It's feeling better in the car. I tried to push but it's not easy to remember this stage - it's so long. Good training for next year.

15 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): So hot it feels like a sauna in the car.
19. 11. 2016 14:08
19. 11. 2016 04:08 CET
15 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): We made a few changes to the set-up but they didn't work out. I couldn't keep the rear in the line - just couldn't find the traction. This was a very bad stage for us.
19. 11. 2016 14:05
19. 11. 2016 04:05 CET
15 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Loosing time at the end of the SS because the tyres were completely gone! Nothing I could do but it was a good stage. We pushed hard
19. 11. 2016 14:01
19. 11. 2016 04:01 CET
15 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The balance was good. I lost a little time near the end when the rear tyres started to move around but the time was good.
19. 11. 2016 13:58
19. 11. 2016 03:58 CET
15 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): We always knew he would be on a mission here. We had a good stage. I was a lot smoother at the start and the tyres only went off near the end, so that was okay. If I had done much more maybe the tyres wouldn't have got us here. It's hard to find the balance.
19. 11. 2016 13:57
19. 11. 2016 03:57 CET
15 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Seb told me he would help me get second place in the championship - it doesn't look like it! A good stage but it was hard to know how hard to push. I'm happy with my drive but I'm not sure how the tyres are for the next stage.
19. 11. 2016 13:54
19. 11. 2016 03:54 CET
15 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): To be honest, I drove very well. I had to back off at the end though because the tyres were beginning to lose their grip.
19. 11. 2016 13:49
19. 11. 2016 03:49 CET
15 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I was really looking after them (tyres) and they survived pretty well. A difficult stage. Let's see.

19. 11. 2016 14:23 CET
14 retired (81 - Pinter Rhys / Hall Phil): retired after SS 14
19. 11. 2016 13:47
19. 11. 2016 03:47 CET
14 flash info (33 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Really lucky to be here because we had a close call in a ditch on the first one. Now we're just focused on the driving.
19. 11. 2016 13:47
19. 11. 2016 03:47 CET
14 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): All going to plan. No problems. The car is working perfectly - and the crew too. I tried a different type of driving here - fully sideways, rather than the usual Tarmac style - and the time is better.
19. 11. 2016 13:46
19. 11. 2016 03:46 CET
14 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): The first one was very difficult with the high-speed crests, but we are happy and looking forward to the afternoon.
19. 11. 2016 13:45
19. 11. 2016 03:45 CET
14 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): It's been a good morning for sure. Hopefully I can increase my speed in the afternoon but there's not so much more I can do.
19. 11. 2016 13:44
19. 11. 2016 03:44 CET
14 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The rough times for me started after Germany and I have been too negative in my mind, but now it's coming. It's a mind game. Okay, this stage wasn't great, I didn't get a sense of the grip level yesterday. I could have done a better job.
19. 11. 2016 13:43
19. 11. 2016 03:43 CET
14 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was okay this morning. We lost six or so seconds with an overshoot but otherwise no mistakes. Our target is to catch Ostberg.
19. 11. 2016 13:43
19. 11. 2016 03:43 CET
14 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): We can't be disappointed. It could have been better but we're back in the fight. It will be much more difficult to take as much time again in Nambucca on the repeat but we'll give it our best shot.
19. 11. 2016 13:42
19. 11. 2016 03:42 CET
14 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A good morning. Seb took a risk on the soft tyres which paid off I think. For us, it's been okay, we have kept the gap more or less the same, but for sure this afternoon we must push.
19. 11. 2016 13:41
19. 11. 2016 03:41 CET
14 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I was concerned that the softs would be too soft for the conditions this morning. In hindsight we should have taken a few more risks with the tyre choice. But but we are still in the race. We won't give up.
19. 11. 2016 13:40
19. 11. 2016 03:40 CET
14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Soft compound tyres were completely the right choice. It was a bit of a risk but in our position it was all we could do. It turned out better than I expected. This afternoon there will probably be some issue with tyre wear, so I will have to be clever. It will be interesting.
19. 11. 2016 13:37
19. 11. 2016 03:37 CET
13 flash info (42 - Fuchs Nicolás / Mussano Fernando): I was careful. I don't push very much this time because my pace notes are too slow. I will try harder this afternoon.
19. 11. 2016 13:37
19. 11. 2016 03:37 CET
13 flash info (33 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): I'm trying to adapt to the conditions. The engine is down a bit on power in the heat and I notice that when I'm driving out of corners.
19. 11. 2016 13:36
19. 11. 2016 03:36 CET
13 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Not so easy to keep the speed up. The car is fine but it feels powerless on the loose surface. It's tricky to find a nice rhythm but okay - no drama.
19. 11. 2016 13:35
19. 11. 2016 03:35 CET
13 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): I don't know why but I'm struggling in some sections and not others. It's me - I need to understand more about the roads.
19. 11. 2016 13:34
19. 11. 2016 03:34 CET
13 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Better than the previous stage. This morning has been complicated; I know I can go quicker but I'm being cautious on the fast sections.
19. 11. 2016 13:34
19. 11. 2016 03:34 CET
13 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It's far too warm today. I try, but there's nothing we can do today.
19. 11. 2016 13:33
19. 11. 2016 03:33 CET
13 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Quite a good stage. A good rhythm. A good push. But what did Jari-Matti have for breakfast?
19. 11. 2016 13:32
19. 11. 2016 03:32 CET
13 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): That was my comeback. I have been lost for six months but this stage gave me back what I have wanted for a long time. I'm being brave, I'm not afraid of anything. No left-foot braking - just flat out.
19. 11. 2016 13:32
19. 11. 2016 03:32 CET
13 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Some dust [in the air] but a lot of gravel on the road. It doesn't seem to be cleaning.
19. 11. 2016 13:31
19. 11. 2016 03:31 CET
13 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): We struggled a bit in there, it was very loose, especially near the start, and the car was sliding about too much. Maybe I'm driving too hard - I need to bring it back a notch.
19. 11. 2016 13:30
19. 11. 2016 03:30 CET
13 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I took some risks here. There were places where it was so dusty I couldn't see anything.
19. 11. 2016 13:28
19. 11. 2016 03:28 CET
13 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The stage was just very, very loose. Ogier had the soft tyre and that's definitely what I should have chosen. I did all I could. I was over the limit in many places. Also I had to back off in a couple of dusty places.
19. 11. 2016 13:27
19. 11. 2016 03:27 CET
13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I was completely flat out, it was a completely perfect stage, I could not do more. The tyre choice was right - on the soft tyres we minimised the time loss.

19. 11. 2016 03:21 CET
12 flash info (33 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): A close call. After the second jump we went off and spun. We are okay though.
19. 11. 2016 13:21
19. 11. 2016 03:21 CET
12 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Not so enjoyable for me. We are not competing really hard - and it's not so easy to drive on the safe side like this. It's okay though.
19. 11. 2016 13:20
19. 11. 2016 03:20 CET
12 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): The engine stopped in here last year. Considering that, the time is not so bad. We could have been faster.
19. 11. 2016 13:19
19. 11. 2016 03:19 CET
12 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I wanted to battle Mads here, but I found this one very difficult.
19. 11. 2016 13:19
19. 11. 2016 03:19 CET
12 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): I tried to push hard in the beginning but later on it got hot and we lost the tyres. Then it was frustrating but I tried to do my best.
19. 11. 2016 13:18
19. 11. 2016 03:18 CET
12 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Difficult in the dust towards the end. My pace notes don't have as much information as they used to and I noticed that in the dust.
19. 11. 2016 13:17
19. 11. 2016 03:17 CET
12 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I enjoyed the driving but there was quite a lot of dust near the end. I had to back off there because the visibility was quite bad.
19. 11. 2016 13:16
19. 11. 2016 03:16 CET
12 (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Sordo reports visibility problems and a junction overshoot
19. 11. 2016 13:15
19. 11. 2016 03:15 CET
12 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Right from the first corner we had dust billowing into the car. I was distracted in a few places but I just tried to forget about it. I thought maybe the rear door was open, but perhaps it's a hole somewhere under the car.
19. 11. 2016 13:14
19. 11. 2016 03:14 CET
12 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I had four hard tyres here - I think that was the right choice although I felt a lack of grip. Not an easy stage. I'm happy with my stage. It wasn't perfect but it was okay.
19. 11. 2016 13:12
19. 11. 2016 03:12 CET
12 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The hard tyres were right for me - the car was still moving like hell at the rear. It's getting cloudy too - I lost at least five seconds in the dust.
19. 11. 2016 13:10
19. 11. 2016 03:10 CET
12 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was not such a bad choice - the tyres look okay. I had to try something [different]. The hards wouldn't have been any better. I hit all the poles - have to try and cut everywhere.
18. 11. 2016 23:47
18. 11. 2016 13:47 CET
10 (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Later start into stage, delayed by police on liaison.
18. 11. 2016 15:39
18. 11. 2016 05:39 CET
9 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): More than difficult. No grip at all. The rear was going everywhere, no stability. The car is setup wrong for these conditions.
18. 11. 2016 15:35
18. 11. 2016 05:35 CET
9 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): A really nice stage but I have used my tyres too much.
18. 11. 2016 15:35
18. 11. 2016 05:35 CET
9 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I expected the time to be a bit better. I was pushing.
18. 11. 2016 15:30
18. 11. 2016 05:30 CET
9 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): The car handling is quite ok now. We made many changes to our pace notes in here, overall it was better than the first pass.
18. 11. 2016 15:27
18. 11. 2016 05:27 CET
9 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Much better than the first pass. Not a bad rhythm. We struggled between the stages though - our wheel nut gun didn't work, so it hasn't been easy to swap our tyres around.
18. 11. 2016 15:26
18. 11. 2016 05:26 CET
9 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): No grip at all. We lost time but I'm surprised by how much seeing as this is the second pass.
18. 11. 2016 15:26
18. 11. 2016 05:26 CET
9 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): No drama at all. There will be a good fight tomorrow. The stages will suit me better and we'll be in a good position. I'm feeling very comfortable.
18. 11. 2016 15:25
18. 11. 2016 05:25 CET
9 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Everything is fine but it's easy to make a mistake in such changeable grip. With oil leak it's fine - we will get to service.
18. 11. 2016 15:25
18. 11. 2016 05:25 CET
9 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I tried to do my best. And to be in my current position feels quite good. For sure my car is not working as well as Seb's here. He made a gap on the first pass and he will make another here.
18. 11. 2016 15:25
18. 11. 2016 05:25 CET
9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I pushed as hard as I could all day. I have nothing to lose, let's see what we can do. This one was quite slippery for us and the tyre wear was high. Usually when this happens we play well. Let's see if this helps us to counteract the handicap.
17. 11. 2016 23:37
17. 11. 2016 13:37 CET
9 Stage was shortened from start for 14,81 km.

18. 11. 2016 04:42 CET
8 flash info (33 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): We lost a lot of power because of overheating - both the turbo and water temperatures are very high.
18. 11. 2016 14:42
18. 11. 2016 04:42 CET
8 flash info (42 - Fuchs Nicolás / Mussano Fernando): I hit a wall. Something is broken. I need to go and fix it.
18. 11. 2016 14:41
18. 11. 2016 04:41 CET
8 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): So far a problem-free rally but there is still a long way to go. I hit a huge stick in here, it was on the road right on the line. Someone must have put in there - it hadn't fallen from a tree.
18. 11. 2016 14:30
18. 11. 2016 04:30 CET
8 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): The car is working better, but still feeling a bit nervous. It's hot, I'm not pushing too much.
18. 11. 2016 14:28
18. 11. 2016 04:28 CET
8 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): No problem, it's an ok time because our tyres are quite used. I used them too much in the first two stages.
18. 11. 2016 14:28
18. 11. 2016 04:28 CET
8 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): The balance of the car is much better now. No complaints. How are my tyres? Take a look yourself.
18. 11. 2016 14:18
18. 11. 2016 04:18 CET
8 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): I can't say how my tyres are coping but I have a good driving rhythm.
18. 11. 2016 14:18
18. 11. 2016 04:18 CET
8 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): My tyres are completely destroyed. Like slicks. Go off the line and there's no grip. I tried to be clean but it's difficult to keep up the speed like this.
18. 11. 2016 14:11
18. 11. 2016 04:11 CET
8 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): The tyres are really bad. I've pushed them too hard in the last stage and a half.
18. 11. 2016 14:11
18. 11. 2016 04:11 CET
8 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It felt really bad in there to be honest, oversteer and understeer in every corner. Then I got a water bottle stuck between my feet. I managed to catch it in one corner - but that was scary.
18. 11. 2016 14:07
18. 11. 2016 04:07 CET
8 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The road is cleaning and the car is working better now there is more grip. I think I pushed my tyres too hard. Ogier is driving very well.
18. 11. 2016 14:07
18. 11. 2016 04:07 CET
8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): The tyre wear is extremely high. It's really, really hot now. I hope the loop will be ok but my tyres look very worn now.

18. 11. 2016 03:48 CET
6 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): More difficult than the first pass. The line is really narrow in places and sometimes the car was moving about when the grip changed.
18. 11. 2016 13:45
18. 11. 2016 03:45 CET
6 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): Much better. We changed the front camber in service.
18. 11. 2016 13:45
18. 11. 2016 03:45 CET
6 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): A good run. This is what we should have done on the first pass.
18. 11. 2016 13:40
18. 11. 2016 03:40 CET
6 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Very slippery again. I think I need to be softer on the setup. That could be better for the next stage.
18. 11. 2016 13:40
18. 11. 2016 03:40 CET
6 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): The car is the opposite now, we have understeer, but we are closer. I'm happy.
18. 11. 2016 13:35
18. 11. 2016 03:35 CET
6 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): A good stage and a better feeling but I didn't manage to take full advantage of the higher grip.
18. 11. 2016 13:31
18. 11. 2016 03:31 CET
6 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The stage was not so bad. Better grip. On hard tyres I think it was a bit better.
18. 11. 2016 13:28
18. 11. 2016 03:28 CET
6 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): The stage is quite hard on the tyres - even the hard option. Happy enough with my driving here.
18. 11. 2016 13:23
18. 11. 2016 03:23 CET
6 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Going really well so far. The grip level is very different this time, there's still some cleaning. We tried to adapt as quickly as possible.
18. 11. 2016 13:21
18. 11. 2016 03:21 CET
6 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I have to go too sideways if I want to keep the speed in the corners. We are losing time like that. Not so nice. I can't follow Seb's lines - it's impossible.
18. 11. 2016 13:20
18. 11. 2016 03:20 CET
6 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): The conditions are better that this morning for sure, but the road will continue to improve I think. We pushed to the maximum this morning and we'll continue to do that. There's nothing more I can do.
18. 11. 2016 11:15
18. 11. 2016 01:15 CET
5 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I've driven on the safe side all the time. Just doing the job we need to do.
18. 11. 2016 11:14
18. 11. 2016 01:14 CET
5 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): The car is not turning properly - maybe the camber at the front is wrong. We need to make some changes now.
18. 11. 2016 11:14

5 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Not a great day for us. Now we need to get the car back to the team so they can work on it. Hopefully we'll get a better afternoon.
18. 11. 2016 11:04
18. 11. 2016 01:04 CET
5 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): A good morning for us. We are happy. More than we expected. After a difficult GB it's good for the confidence.
18. 11. 2016 10:57
18. 11. 2016 00:57 CET
5 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): A frustrating morning, but what can I do? As well as the sticking throttle, we have a differential problem too. I'm sure the mechanics will get it sorted now.
18. 11. 2016 10:56
18. 11. 2016 00:56 CET
5 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): The two last stages have not been good and we stalled on the start in here. We'll be alright after the service with new tyres and a fresh start.
18. 11. 2016 10:50
18. 11. 2016 00:50 CET
5 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We will get a 20 second penalty for being two minutes late to the start of SS4. We got lost on the road section.
18. 11. 2016 10:47
18. 11. 2016 00:47 CET
5 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): You've got to try these things sometimes. Ok, it didn't quite work but we're still in the fight with a long way to go. Tomorrow the day is I really enjoy. I just want to stay close today.
18. 11. 2016 10:44
18. 11. 2016 00:44 CET
5 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A very good morning, just like we wanted. I think we've done a pretty good job from third place in the start order. The pace has been comfortable. No moments. A good attack.
18. 11. 2016 10:39
18. 11. 2016 00:39 CET
5 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It has not been easy but we are happy to be keeping up with Seb. I have to keep an eye on the championship because Andreas is doing well. I expect things will be better for me this afternoon.
18. 11. 2016 10:38
18. 11. 2016 00:38 CET
5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's definitely been tough. I have pushed as hard as I can this morning.
18. 11. 2016 13:48
18. 11. 2016 03:48 CET
4 (33 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): spun
18. 11. 2016 10:33
18. 11. 2016 00:33 CET
4 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): It's been tough. No grip and lots of wheel spin. My tyres are finished I think. We're not driving too bad. I doing know why it is like this.
18. 11. 2016 10:32
18. 11. 2016 00:32 CET
4 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We had more time on the road section to fix it this time. In stage we still had to be careful not to destroy it. The plan is to get to service and keep going. I'm surprised how we've managed to keep it together.
18. 11. 2016 10:32
18. 11. 2016 00:32 CET
4 (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): problems with suspension
18. 11. 2016 10:25
18. 11. 2016 00:25 CET
4 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Completely different to the other stages, with the trees everywhere. It was very special. We didn't really push this time. Generally it's going better than I expected.
18. 11. 2016 10:23
18. 11. 2016 00:23 CET
4 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Some confusion in the notes and we got lost in the dust - I couldn't find the road. Also the throttle is sticking. It's difficult.
18. 11. 2016 10:23
18. 11. 2016 00:23 CET
4 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): A bad stage. No rhythm in the car. Not good. We lost a lot of time. I'm not happy.
18. 11. 2016 10:23
18. 11. 2016 00:23 CET

18. 11. 2016 00:22 CET
4 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): No problem in the stage. We checked into the stage 2 minutes late.
18. 11. 2016 10:10
18. 11. 2016 00:10 CET
4 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): A big problem having soft tyres at the rear and hards at the front. I couldn't drive the car straight at all. A few near spins, we hit the banks a few times.
18. 11. 2016 10:04
18. 11. 2016 00:04 CET
4 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A good morning. I think we're doing a really good job from our position of third on the road. A good run here but it's very loose.
18. 11. 2016 10:02
18. 11. 2016 00:02 CET
4 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I try to do well but my time is not good. Probably a lot of tyre wear too. We had a lot of wheelspin. We have to keep the pressure up. We are going to do our best.
18. 11. 2016 10:01
18. 11. 2016 00:01 CET
4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): All ok. We have been on the limit all the way through today. Ok, we're far back, which is frustrating, but I did all I could. I have not so much hope for this afternoon, to be honest.
17. 11. 2016 23:37
17. 11. 2016 13:37 CET
4 Stage was shortened from start for 14,81 km.

17. 11. 2016 23:56 CET
3 flash info (33 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): The times are not so bad. I'm happy with that. Not bad for my first time here.
18. 11. 2016 09:55
17. 11. 2016 23:55 CET
3 flash info (42 - Fuchs Nicolás / Mussano Fernando): Very slippery and I don't have the right tyres I think. If you are out of the lines it's very tough.
18. 11. 2016 09:26
17. 11. 2016 23:26 CET
3 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I struggled a bit with the rhythm early on but I can back off if I need to. Near the end it was better. I hoped the road would be cleaner but the guys ahead are not using the same lines.
18. 11. 2016 09:21
17. 11. 2016 23:21 CET
3 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): My tyres are destroyed. I struggle with the rear - I have no grip at all. I'm on the limit.
18. 11. 2016 09:21
17. 11. 2016 23:21 CET
3 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I managed some repairs but the faster I go the more I risk losing the whole left-rear wheel. I could go faster but I have to drive smoothly.
18. 11. 2016 09:21
17. 11. 2016 23:21 CET
3 (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): problems with suspension
18. 11. 2016 09:16
17. 11. 2016 23:16 CET
3 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): That's good news that we are third fastest. We changed something on the car and it's better.
18. 11. 2016 09:10
17. 11. 2016 23:10 CET
3 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It's difficult to understand what's happening - it's not working at all. Very strange. I tried a lot of things but it feels horrible. There's no balance.
18. 11. 2016 09:08
17. 11. 2016 23:08 CET
3 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): So slippery and very difficult to have good rhythm. I feel I'm fighting all the time to keep the line. I struggled in the second half because my tyres are overheating - I was a bit too keen early on.
18. 11. 2016 09:01
17. 11. 2016 23:01 CET
3 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): There is a line, but it's not super clean. On the soft tyres there's not so much grip. Hard tyres would have been better, I think.
18. 11. 2016 09:00
17. 11. 2016 23:00 CET
3 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): When it got tight and twisty near the end we struggled for grip and turn-in with the hard tyres at the front. It wasn't too bad. I don't think there's an optimum tyre choice here. The hard feel a bit too hard, the softs a bit too soft.
18. 11. 2016 08:56
17. 11. 2016 22:56 CET
3 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We try to cut where we can. There's so much cleaning it's amazing. It will be difficult to fight with the guys behind.
18. 11. 2016 08:52
17. 11. 2016 22:52 CET
3 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I have to drive sideways everywhere to get the grip. There is a small advantage in following Ogier's lines.
18. 11. 2016 08:51
17. 11. 2016 22:51 CET
3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I take all the risks I can - I try. I have nothing to lose.
18. 11. 2016 08:52
17. 11. 2016 22:52 CET
2 (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): problems with suspension

18. 11. 2016 08:35
17. 11. 2016 22:35 CET
1 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I just want to keep some rhythm and speed - make it enjoyable. I more or less had that in here. I'm not pushing at all.
18. 11. 2016 08:31
17. 11. 2016 22:31 CET
1 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): Very slippery like last year. I'm struggling to find the right setup. A strange surface.
18. 11. 2016 08:29
17. 11. 2016 22:29 CET
1 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Not really happy. Not a good stage. That's life.
18. 11. 2016 08:26
17. 11. 2016 22:26 CET
1 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): No grip in there. Obviously the hard tyre is not great here. Hopefully we can change something - this set up feels a bit like a rear-wheel drive.
18. 11. 2016 08:23
17. 11. 2016 22:23 CET
1 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): That's very good. It was very slippery but I think more for the guys ahead. A nice stage and I could go really wide - I enjoyed it.
18. 11. 2016 08:21
17. 11. 2016 22:21 CET
1 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I have broken suspension, it was my mistake. A little wide on a right-hander over a bridge and it touched the bridge.
18. 11. 2016 08:20
17. 11. 2016 22:20 CET
1 (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): broken suspension
18. 11. 2016 08:18
17. 11. 2016 22:18 CET
1 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Maybe my tyres are a bit soft for this surface, but the balance of the car feels good. It's ok.
18. 11. 2016 08:15
17. 11. 2016 22:15 CET
1 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I wanted to try something different and I'm pretty happy with the choice. Ok, maybe we lost a bit in the braking here, but over the rest of the loop, when things warm up, it should be ok.
18. 11. 2016 08:13
17. 11. 2016 22:13 CET
1 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A good stage. I like this one. Now we have to keep on going. I have no choice than to try and win the event.
18. 11. 2016 08:08
17. 11. 2016 22:08 CET
1 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was hard to follow their lines in places but I tried. Ok, a similar time to Ogier - which is not so bad. I tried my best.
18. 11. 2016 08:06
17. 11. 2016 22:06 CET
1 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Like expected very slippery but I'm happy with my stage. A good drive but not much we can do.
