12. 02. 2016 16:36 CET 9 flash info (45 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): We are really happy with the progress we have made today. It's hard to adapt to a new car of course. It's going according to the plan.
12. 02. 2016 16:36 CET 9 flash info (36 - Åhlin Fredrik / Abrahamsen Morten Erik): A very difficult day but I'm proud with how we have handled it.
12. 02. 2016 16:28 CET 9 flash info (51 - Grøndal Anders / Walfridsson Miriam): We had a spin in the last corner, that lost us six or seven seconds. A bit annoying - a silly mistake.
12. 02. 2016 16:26 CET 9 flash info (34 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): It's been character building! I tried not to lose too much time with the driveshaft. I can be happy with my driving and apart from the driveshaft the car has run perfectly.
12. 02. 2016 16:26 CET 9 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): I'm happy. Ok, some problems with the driveshaft but all is working well here. I don't know what the gap is now but for sure we will try.
12. 02. 2016 16:25 CET 9 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): We are still here. We have never been here on this rally before. A small mistake but thanks to the spectators who helped us out. I'm still quite happy with my day.
12. 02. 2016 16:25 CET 9 flash info (38 - Tempestini Simone / Chiarcossi Matteo): A difficult day but we are happy to be here. We will work on our setup in service.
12. 02. 2016 16:25 CET 9 flash info (42 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Not such a bad day, some small problem here with a lack of power but we've enjoyed it.
12. 02. 2016 16:14 CET 9 flash info (44 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): I didn't have a great run in here, the grip was changeable, but I'm definitely happy with my day. There are some big expectations after Monte and I'm keen to show it was no fluke.
12. 02. 2016 16:13 CET 9 flash info (30 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): We try to push a little bit. We push little bit in the fast section, help me to make good time. Hope tomorrow we can reach more high level.
12. 02. 2016 16:12 CET 9 flash info (16 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): I drive like a maniac… The engine did not go for a long time… It’s not bad. For a long time I was absolutely crazy.
12. 02. 2016 16:07 CET 9 flash info (15 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I had a spin, I had a funny feeling on a left hander like I had lost the studs. I am still happy with the day, with the speed. I need to improve, make some improvements and start again tomorrow.
12. 02. 2016 16:07 CET 9 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Klinger Nicolas): I am happy for this afternoon and for the learning. This last one was hard and easy to damage the car. I am happy.
12. 02. 2016 16:03 CET 9 retired (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): technical problem - suspension in SS 9
12. 02. 2016 16:02 CET 9 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): I think now is more tricky than this morning, as the snow is covering the edge of the corner and sometimes is a gamble.
12. 02. 2016 16:02 CET 9 flash info (14 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): The biggest problem for me in the last two stages is we lost a lot of traction, backed off a lot of places. Changed a lot of clicks with the dampers.
12. 02. 2016 16:02 CET 9 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Road conditions have played a big part today. As far as the grip, it has been very consistent. I am not 100% confident with the car, the front is not reacting as I want it to.
12. 02. 2016 16:02 CET 9 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): I have been pushing quite hard, all thanks to the snow otherwise we would have been struggling a lot. I think can be very happy with the first day.
12. 02. 2016 16:00 CET 9 (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): stopped in stage
12. 02. 2016 15:48 CET 9 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was good, but I lost a little bit time in the first passes. This stage is nice. I try to keep the gap with the others, a really nice fight.
12. 02. 2016 15:47 CET 9 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): It is very encouraging, we a little bit difficult this morning but then the snow arrived and I was happy. I wanted to be there from the beginning and I was a little bit disappointed with myself. We made some changes to the car and to the driving.
12. 02. 2016 15:45 CET 9 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): That’s the game, sometimes life is hard. We are continuing driving. I feel like I am doing two wheel drive championship, I am getting use to it.
12. 02. 2016 15:42 CET 9 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We have done a couple of mistakes today, I can only thank myself… Okay we are here, I took it a little bit too cautious in here as I expected it would be worse.
12. 02. 2016 15:40 CET 9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Already this afternoon I struggle a lot, but I push hard as I know I will lose a lot. I do my best and expect to lose a lot. It was a great first day of the race. I got a bit lucky when we went off on this one tricky corner.
12. 02. 2016 15:24 CET 8 Results are not correct due to technical issues on organisers/promoters side.
12. 02. 2016 15:19 CET 8 flash info (36 - Åhlin Fredrik / Abrahamsen Morten Erik): Scary to drive with the throttle like this.
12. 02. 2016 15:19 CET 8 flash info (51 - Grøndal Anders / Walfridsson Miriam): Very happy. I lost a couple of seconds in a corner but overall I enjoyed it. This car setup works better in the fast stuff.
12. 02. 2016 15:18 CET 8 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): We managed to fix the broken driveshaft on the road section. I'm grateful to Skoda who gave us some mechanical training before the rally.
12. 02. 2016 15:10 CET 8 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): On the first corner I lost the rear. I started to spin and the front went into a ditch. We were stuck, that's all. Still, we are here. The most important thing is the experience. For sure I'm disappointed.
12. 02. 2016 15:09 CET 8 flash info (30 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): It’s good, we try in the fast corner to push a little bit. Tomorrow I try to push a little bit the second loop. We do I think well first rally here.
12. 02. 2016 15:08 CET 8 flash info (15 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I was struggling a bit all morning with my braking. It’s been much more than I expected, I think you can only be happy with the experience so far.
12. 02. 2016 14:51 CET 8 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Klinger Nicolas): Very good. I am happy, I have no off. I think it is possible to push in the fast corner but I need time. Nice road but I was frightened to make a mistake.
12. 02. 2016 14:50 CET 8 retired (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): technical problem - damaged wheel in SS 8
12. 02. 2016 14:48 CET 8 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): Much better, maybe we could go a bit softer. This was fun.
12. 02. 2016 14:47 CET 8 flash info (14 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): Very difficult conditions now with having more snow. The car is moving a lot.
12. 02. 2016 14:44 CET 8 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): We obviously have an advantage. A lot of places where we go way too wide, untidy but it is the same fro everybody. You have to sit and be patience some times. Meeke is parked up at a junction.
12. 02. 2016 14:43 CET 8 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is going better than in the morning for sure. I am starting to get use to the car so we are not losing so much now.
12. 02. 2016 14:43 CET 8 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Very snowy and slippy and exactly what we were hoping. Now is ok. I have been trying quite hard all day so we just keep going.
12. 02. 2016 14:43 CET 8 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Difficult, I try to catch the car moving a lot in the rear. One more stage for today, we enjoy a lot.
12. 02. 2016 14:42 CET 8 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): It was quit a good run, but so much snow in there. We wanted snow all week and now we have it! I had a good run but it is cleaning a lot. For the first 6, 7, 8 cars there will be a big difference in time.
12. 02. 2016 14:41 CET 8 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): With all the snow I can’t use the lines of the car in front. With 2 wheel drive it is really difficult. I can’t brake very late as it locks the wheels on the rear, so I have to be very careful.
12. 02. 2016 14:41 CET 8 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): stopped in stage
12. 02. 2016 14:29 CET 8 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): There's more snow about now. It's making things much more slippery.
12. 02. 2016 14:29 CET 8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think I lost a lot of time.
12. 02. 2016 14:28 CET 8 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): missed junction
12. 02. 2016 15:23 CET 7 Results are not correct due to technical issues on organisers/promoters side.
12. 02. 2016 14:23 CET 7 flash info (36 - Åhlin Fredrik / Abrahamsen Morten Erik): The throttle stuck five times on stage. We also went off at a hairpin.
12. 02. 2016 14:20 CET 7 flash info (51 - Grøndal Anders / Walfridsson Miriam): Not so bad. Very slippery out of the line, but I'm happy with that.
12. 02. 2016 14:18 CET 7 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Something is broken, a driveshaft perhaps. We have only front-wheel-drive.
12. 02. 2016 14:18 CET 7 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Nothing. I had some rice and chicken, that's all. I couldn't go faster on the first pass, I just didn't have the confidence. Now it's a bit cleaner.
12. 02. 2016 14:17 CET 7 flash info (44 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): Good grip. More consistent than the first pass.
12. 02. 2016 14:07 CET 7 flash info (15 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): How do you explain to be faster than Ogier? I worked so hard. I have been given this Willie Wonka ticket and I don’t want to throw it away.
12. 02. 2016 14:07 CET 7 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Klinger Nicolas): I am disappointed. A little mistake on the hairpin. I am quite happy for the feeling but the time is not very good.
12. 02. 2016 14:07 CET 7 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): Just a mistake, I lost maybe 9 or 10 seconds. I get stuck in a hairpin.
12. 02. 2016 13:55 CET 7 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Not bad, the road conditions suit us better on the second run. I am trying to get more confidence in the car.
12. 02. 2016 13:50 CET 7 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It just felt good, the rhythm felt good. The balance of the car can change so much and we just done a few adjustments. It is quite icy and we always knew that on the second pass the first car on the road is at a disadvantage.
12. 02. 2016 13:50 CET 7 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Inner hub of front left drive shaft. In the ruts when you are on full power you are sideways.
12. 02. 2016 13:45 CET 7 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Luckily there was a bit more loose on the top at the beginning of the stage. I am actually quite surprised, the second loop has been quite good.
12. 02. 2016 13:45 CET 7 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): The car is moving a lot in the lines on the road.
12. 02. 2016 13:44 CET 7 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): At least the times are not so bad, the feeling is not different but the times is better. It is cleaning on the stage and we should be faster than Seb on this stage.
12. 02. 2016 13:44 CET 7 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The rear differential is broken, nothing to do, we try to continue. On a junction we have a spin, it feels like we have only one wheel drive. But ok, we continue.
12. 02. 2016 13:41 CET 7 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): In a left hand corner I lost the rear a bit and we hit a tree stump. I did not see it on the recce and it spun the car a round. We just have to do what we can to get the second place.
12. 02. 2016 13:35 CET 7 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's always more difficult on the second loop, when you're following the lines of the two-wheel-drive cars. The repair is ok, but the steering feels heavier.
12. 02. 2016 13:31 CET 7 (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): was out of road
12. 02. 2016 00:26 CET 6 Stage was cancelled before rally.
12. 02. 2016 00:26 CET 5 Stage was cancelled before rally.
14. 02. 2016 21:40 CET 4 retired (39 - Foulon Alain / Delarche Gilles): retired after SS 4
12. 02. 2016 12:05 CET 4 flash info (45 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): Taking things step-by-step. A hard landing over the big jump in there and I need to go and take a look.
12. 02. 2016 12:00 CET 4 flash info (36 - Åhlin Fredrik / Abrahamsen Morten Erik): Much more understeer in this stage without the rear anti-roll bar.
12. 02. 2016 11:59 CET 4 flash info (51 - Grøndal Anders / Walfridsson Miriam): A stall at a hairpin and problem with the changes I made to the pacenotes.
12. 02. 2016 11:58 CET 4 flash info (34 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): I think we have a broken driveshaft or rear diff. It's too long back to service. I really hoped this would be the weekend.
12. 02. 2016 11:55 CET 4 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I'm enjoying the driving but the time is not good. Elfyn is driving very well I must say. I'm not sure there's much more I can do - especially on the first passes.
12. 02. 2016 11:48 CET 4 (38 - Tempestini Simone / Chiarcossi Matteo): spun
12. 02. 2016 11:47 CET 4 flash info (42 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Not too much risk but I still want to stay in touch with the leaders.
12. 02. 2016 11:46 CET 4 flash info (44 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): A small moment in a bank. I'm trying pretty hard. It happens, no problem.
12. 02. 2016 11:44 CET 4 flash info (30 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): Is good, this stage have good feeling. One time the car switch off at one junction.
12. 02. 2016 11:41 CET 4 flash info (16 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): Everything is nice today. I can go faster, but I go as fast as I can. I use the manual gearshift sometimes when I can’t get it.
12. 02. 2016 11:41 CET 4 flash info (15 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It was terrible in some places, the slush. I was happy enough with my drive, every kilometre with the car it just gets better and better.
12. 02. 2016 11:38 CET 4 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Klinger Nicolas): Here the time is better again. It is difficult to slide all the time and be secure.
12. 02. 2016 11:36 CET 4 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): I had a big moment and was completely full with opposite lock on the steering. We are much faster than before. Is okay we can manage.
12. 02. 2016 11:33 CET 4 flash info (14 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): I could not get any proper rhythm in this stage. There was a lot of water and I was worried about.
12. 02. 2016 11:31 CET 4 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Unfortunately we are a sitting duck with the road positions. There is nothing we can do about it, we saw last year it was better on the second run.
12. 02. 2016 11:29 CET 4 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Not too bad. Every time you come out of a corner you see these marks and there is no grip on it so you have to move out.
12. 02. 2016 11:28 CET 4 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I drive what I can but it is very slow. The diff is slipping more in these conditions. There is nothing you can do.
12. 02. 2016 11:24 CET 4 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It was quite big water splash. The beginning of the stage quite good but we lost a lot of grip after that.
12. 02. 2016 11:24 CET 4 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Just arrive in the water and aqua planing. Really dangerous, you could not see.
12. 02. 2016 11:22 CET 4 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): It is impossible to go through this stage without something happening. It is very unexpected and I could see the lines of the cars in front of me going every where. I could see the lines of the cars and see that something was about to happen.
12. 02. 2016 11:21 CET 4 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We have a transmission problem. I don't know what. One-wheel-drive I think.
12. 02. 2016 11:16 CET 4 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We went off, came round a corner and suddenly deep water, lose control of the car and off the road. Not easy for sure.
12. 02. 2016 11:16 CET 4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): There was a big water splash in the stage and I did not have this in the notes. The organisers said it was a bump. I couldn't turn after it and went into the trees. I must go and work on the car.
12. 02. 2016 09:56 CET 4 Start of stage is delayed for 5 minutes.
12. 02. 2016 11:03 CET 3 flash info (36 - Åhlin Fredrik / Abrahamsen Morten Erik): Really shocked, because we don't have a rear anti-roll bar. Maybe I won't run one more often.
12. 02. 2016 11:03 CET 3 flash info (51 - Grøndal Anders / Walfridsson Miriam): Pretty good. We weren't expecting this snow but the time is good so I'm happy.
12. 02. 2016 11:03 CET 3 flash info (34 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): Not too bad. A bit of under-steering and some misfiring on the first stage but I enjoyed it. It's a proper rally now.
12. 02. 2016 11:02 CET 3 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): Yes, it was good. A bit slippery so hard to say if it was good nor not. The feeling was ok. I really enjoyed it.
12. 02. 2016 11:01 CET 3 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): We had bigger starting gap, didnt catched Foulon. Now its good. A lot better.
12. 02. 2016 11:01 CET 3 flash info (42 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Totally different grip than the first stage. We were cautious in here. Not too many risks.
12. 02. 2016 11:01 CET 3 flash info (44 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): It was ok but quite difficult to read the grip. It's hard to get confidence but it was okay. I have a sneaky feeling these Scandinavians will be able to read the road a bit better.
12. 02. 2016 10:40 CET 3 flash info (30 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): Good, now feeling better. In the crests I scared as I don’t know how the car control. I enjoy this stage a lot. Every stage I try to push a little bit.
12. 02. 2016 10:38 CET 3 flash info (16 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): It was ok, the stage was very good, very good. There is a lot of people in there. I try to go as fast as I can. I am not happy I have problem with the gear.
12. 02. 2016 10:36 CET 3 flash info (15 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Really nice. Really enjoyable stage, fantastic. I am just trying to improve stage by stage.
12. 02. 2016 10:34 CET 3 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Klinger Nicolas): Difficult. I feel a bit shocked. It felt good but the time is not. Not easy. We wait second pass.
12. 02. 2016 10:34 CET 3 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): It was ok, at least a bit of proper Rally Sweden.
12. 02. 2016 10:33 CET 3 flash info (14 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): My notes are not perfect for these conditions. I am making some corrections.
12. 02. 2016 10:28 CET 3 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Felt better from a driving point of view. The first half quite slippy where is was snowing. Had a slight distraction with an alarm going off, just for water temperature.
12. 02. 2016 10:26 CET 3 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): A little bit of snow. I thought my rhythm was ok but obviously not fast enough. It actually wasn’t so bad.
12. 02. 2016 10:24 CET 3 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Not easy. Even in the fast stuff I feel we are slipping all the time. I drive what I can. On previous stage we come to the jump and into the right hand corner and left front driveshaft broke. I have no idea why. A mechanical problem I think. Just one of those things.
12. 02. 2016 10:20 CET 3 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Very nice conditions. Some places even managed to touch the bank. Grip better than on the previous one but not perfect driving.
12. 02. 2016 10:20 CET 3 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We did not do very well. The conditions are great now. I enjoy a lot. I am disappointed not to drive a little bit more fast.
12. 02. 2016 10:20 CET 3 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): The stage is nice but I struggle to find a good rhythm. Everything seems new, I will try to improve.
12. 02. 2016 10:16 CET 3 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I wasn’t happy with the run. I try to drive well but it is moving quite a lot around. Not happy with that.
12. 02. 2016 10:12 CET 3 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Nothing to worry about. It was alright, not perfect but I am happy enough with it. A beautiful stage. A lot of Norwegian people, I see a lot of flags so that is nice.
12. 02. 2016 10:11 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Really perfect condition, really prefect to drive this stage. It is snowing a little bit but it is really good to drive this stage. No big mistakes. I tried my best.
12. 02. 2016 09:55 CET 3 Start of stage is delayed for 5 minutes.
14. 02. 2016 21:25 CET 21 retired (93 - Boland Eamonn / Morrissey Michael Joseph): retired after SS 21
14. 02. 2016 13:18 CET 21 flash info (45 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): That was the plan (beat Bergkvist) we made it by less than one second. A great way to end the rally!
14. 02. 2016 13:18 CET 21 flash info (34 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): Not the best weekend for us but hopefully we'll get another chance to get back in this car soon.
14. 02. 2016 13:17 CET 21 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): This feels good now. The goal was always to get on the podium.
14. 02. 2016 13:14 CET 21 flash info (44 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): There was some serious competition here so I'm very, really very happy with another win!
14. 02. 2016 13:09 CET 21 retired (40 - Pärn Sander / Morgan James): accident in SS 21
14. 02. 2016 12:55 CET 21 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's been an amazing weekend. I love the rally here in Sweden. The weather came and the organizers did an incredible job. Two wins from two rallies, it's a great start to the year. Yesterday I took lots of risks I had a lot of luck!
14. 02. 2016 12:52 CET 21 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I touched a couple of wooden posts coming down the hill, but I didn't think they did any damage. I need to go and have a look.
14. 02. 2016 12:51 CET 21 (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): hit a wooden post, broken radiator
14. 02. 2016 12:47 CET 21 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): I'm very happy with third. Some really good battles this weekend. I hope to continue that in Mexico.
14. 02. 2016 12:45 CET 21 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I did one mistake in there so not good enough for the win.
14. 02. 2016 12:42 CET 21 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Full gravel, so very tough conditions for me here. Good performance from DMACK. Things can only get better from here.
14. 02. 2016 12:39 CET 21 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): My rally was over when I got the puncture yesterday. I drove very slowly today. I wanted to keep this position for the championship points.
14. 02. 2016 12:34 CET 21 flash info (16 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): I hit a big stone in here and thought it was over! It's been one year since I've been in the car and with no test. I'm very happy. When will I be back? I have to speak to Malcolm Wilson. If he loves me I'll get a car. If he doesn't I wont!
14. 02. 2016 12:32 CET 21 flash info (15 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Getting to the end was the main aim, and I've got very good experience. We are really, really, happy.
14. 02. 2016 12:29 CET 21 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I went wide on a junction. I lost a second or two there, but it was a great stage.
14. 02. 2016 12:25 CET 21 flash info (14 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): The rally was difficult for sure. I backed off too much here.
14. 02. 2016 12:20 CET 21 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): A bit hesitant because the conditions have changed so much since the recce. I reckon the guys behind will be quicker. For me it's been a rally of what could have been. Victory was on the cards.
14. 02. 2016 12:15 CET 21 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It was a good stage for me. There is loose gravel in places. I don't think my time is enough to win but two or three points would be nice.
14. 02. 2016 12:07 CET 21 A dusting of snow on the ground. The temperature at the start line is -9.0˚C.
13. 02. 2016 20:21 CET 20 Stage was cancelled.

12. 02. 2016 09:41 CET 2 flash info (34 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): Good fun. Full ice. The organisers have done a good job with the stage but we caught Foulon so they might want to look at the seedings.
12. 02. 2016 09:39 CET 2 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): The start was good but we caught the car ahead and after that we lost our rhythm.
12. 02. 2016 09:38 CET 2 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I catch the Mitsubishi. I don't know how much time we lost. It is what it is.
12. 02. 2016 09:34 CET 2 flash info (42 - Ptaszek Hubert / Szczepaniak Maciej): Conditions better than we thought.
12. 02. 2016 09:32 CET 2 flash info (44 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): Road conditions are really hard. A surprise to many people I think. Pretty tricky to find the grip, but the feeling is good. The car is working well.
12. 02. 2016 09:31 CET 2 flash info (30 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): I need more experience because the car has a lot of speed. It's scaring me and I need to respect that.
12. 02. 2016 09:29 CET 2 flash info (16 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): I had a little problem with the downshift. Not a good stage but I do my best.
12. 02. 2016 09:27 CET 2 flash info (15 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I did not touch anything, I don’t know. It is so difficult to get in the rhythm. It was slushy on my test so it's hard to get my head around the different conditions.
12. 02. 2016 09:25 CET 2 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Klinger Nicolas): Not really good confidence here without the snow banks. It's not easy to find the limit on braking. No problem though.
12. 02. 2016 09:24 CET 2 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): It’s ok like this. So long as it stays frosty, it's better than we expected.
12. 02. 2016 09:21 CET 2 flash info (14 - Al Qassimi Khalid / Patterson Chris): It's my first time to drive in these unpredictable conditions. I tried hard to find the grip.
12. 02. 2016 09:21 CET 2 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Not so bad. Stage conditions were better than we'd anticipated. It will take time to adjust to the new car. No problems, just a bit too careful.
12. 02. 2016 09:17 CET 2 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Credit to the organisers, they've worked well on this stage. I was quite steady at the beginning. It's all about picking your braking point . A good start. Not so bad.
12. 02. 2016 09:16 CET 2 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We have a problem. The driveshaft broke 2 km before the end. I don't know what spares we have in the car.
12. 02. 2016 09:16 CET 2 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It is very hard and really slippy in places. I push hard, i do my best. Conditions not so bad. It was good clean run.
12. 02. 2016 09:15 CET 2 UPDATE from Clerk of the Course - stage is running normally
12. 02. 2016 09:12 CET 2 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Not so bad. Difficult to know how far you can push. We have a warning on the dash showing high water temperature.
12. 02. 2016 09:09 CET 2 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Not a good stage for me, unfortunately I struggle a bit. Not a good feeling. I just have to get use to driving the car in these conditions.
12. 02. 2016 09:08 CET 2 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The car wasn't turning too well in the left-hand corners, but it was ok. The stage was okay at the beginning, but a bit rougher at the end.
12. 02. 2016 09:05 CET 2 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): The base is hard, it felt like the tyres were going off a bit at the end. A decent start.
12. 02. 2016 09:03 CET 2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): The road is pretty hard. With no test or shakedown in these conditions it's good to try hard.
12. 02. 2016 09:01 CET 2 First run through Torsby is neutralised and is used as a high-speed recce for the second pass this afternoon.
12. 02. 2016 00:27 CET 19 Stage was cancelled before rally.
12. 02. 2016 00:27 CET 18 Stage was cancelled before rally.
14. 02. 2016 22:12 CET 16 retired (36 - Åhlin Fredrik / Abrahamsen Morten Erik): accident in SS 16
14. 02. 2016 22:12 CET 16 flash info (51 - Grøndal Anders / Walfridsson Miriam): Ok, back up to third now but that's bad luck for Fredrik. We passed him in stage and it looks like he's taken a wheel off in a slow corner.
14. 02. 2016 21:28 CET 16 retired (30 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): accident in SS 16
13. 02. 2016 18:33 CET 16 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I think I'm more relaxed and braking later. I saw Ahlin in the ditch and that gave me a boost.
13. 02. 2016 18:32 CET 16 flash info (32 - Tidemand Pontus / Andersson Jonas): It's going well. I really love this stage. The pace notes, car, all is working well. Not so easy to beat Evans though. I wish we had more stages and more time to catch up.
13. 02. 2016 18:31 CET 16 flash info (44 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): We had a few issues after the last stage and had to make repairs to the steering.
13. 02. 2016 18:30 CET 16 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I think I have a puncture. There's a big vibration. We have an issue with the wheel I think.
13. 02. 2016 18:29 CET 16 flash info (30 - Al Rajhi Yazeed / Orr Michael): stop and start in SS 16
13. 02. 2016 18:27 CET 16 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): The stage is mainly gravel. The beginning is quite icy, but after that it's gravel with snow either side.
13. 02. 2016 16:18 CET 16 (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): broken damper
13. 02. 2016 16:05 CET 16 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): It's all about maintaining my position now. Okay, we started this stage trailing Ogier by 10 sec, but that's like being a minute behind any other driver. We need to be smart. We struggled a bit in here. We used our studs in the stage before.
13. 02. 2016 16:03 CET 16 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): All day it has been frozen gravel and unfortunately that's not working for us. We saw yesterday it was different and in those conditions, with our tyres, we were able to fight for the podium.
13. 02. 2016 16:02 CET 16 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): This stage was clean. I took it a bit steady after my moment on the previous one.
13. 02. 2016 16:01 CET 16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Pushing hard in there - some moments.
12. 02. 2016 00:27 CET 15 Stage was cancelled before rally.

13. 02. 2016 18:22 CET 14 flash info (31 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I'm not feeling so great, my eyes and my head hurt.
13. 02. 2016 18:21 CET 14 flash info (34 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): I did a big mistake, I forgot to take off the engine blanking before the stage and the engine overheated near the end.
13. 02. 2016 18:20 CET 14 flash info (44 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): A strange feeling at the rear of the car here. We need to go and have a look.
13. 02. 2016 18:18 CET 14 flash info (16 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): The car stalled on the start and I couldn't get it going for ages! We lost about five seconds.
13. 02. 2016 18:16 CET 14 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I was expecting more but Seb's obviously pushing. We were never going to catch him.
13. 02. 2016 18:15 CET 14 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Everyone knows it's not our day today.
13. 02. 2016 18:13 CET 14 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): I pushed as hard as I could. Ok, Seb (Ogier) is faster but what can I do?
13. 02. 2016 18:04 CET 14 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We slid off and had to turn around. We lost a lot of time.
13. 02. 2016 18:02 CET 14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It was completely flat out. I took so many risks.
12. 02. 2016 00:27 CET 13 Stage was cancelled before rally.

14. 02. 2016 22:01 CET 12 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): What can I say? A rocky start to my season but today is really good experience. We're playing around with the setups of the car.
14. 02. 2016 22:01 CET 12 flash info (15 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Not bad is it? I'm sure the road is cleaning but through this one I was shouting yee-ha! It's incredible. Like I'm playing on a PlayStation.
14. 02. 2016 22:00 CET 12 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): For sure it's cleaning. We expected something like this. We did quite a good stage. I was happy with that. You can smell the mustard on the spectators hot dogs.
14. 02. 2016 22:00 CET 12 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Quite slippery and the times are getting better and better. For me it was the stage to get back into the rhythm.
14. 02. 2016 21:59 CET 12 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I had a pretty clean drive and I'm happy with that. The road is cleaning a lot. Anders got something in his eye at the start but he managed to read the notes ok.
13. 02. 2016 17:42 CET 12 flash info (16 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): I'm pushing - oy oy oy! I have fun. Third fastest is good. I can still drive!
13. 02. 2016 17:40 CET 12 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Ogier is not really the target for us now. We want to build a buffer ahead of the guys behind.
13. 02. 2016 17:36 CET 12 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We might lose a lot here. Especially to Hayden Paddon who is starting so far behind.

14. 02. 2016 21:55 CET 10 flash info (34 - Brynildsen Eyvind / Fredriksson Anders): The guys worked hard last night but we have the same problem as yesterday. I try to push but it's impossible. We believed it was something with the handbrake yesterday, now I don't know.
14. 02. 2016 21:54 CET 10 (51 - Grøndal Anders / Walfridsson Miriam): health problems
14. 02. 2016 21:54 CET 10 flash info (15 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Different conditions compared to yesterday and that means more learning for me. We passed Eric's car on stage, it looks like a big accident and that was a bit of a distraction.
14. 02. 2016 21:53 CET 10 flash info (4 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): My road position is 50/50. Some places there is a clean line, in other places more ice. So no real advantage. I'm a bit frustrated with my own driving on this one. We can improve a lot.
14. 02. 2016 21:53 CET 10 flash info (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It happened about four kilometres before the finish. There were lots of stones in the road and I hit one. I will try to fight back.
14. 02. 2016 21:52 CET 10 (20 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): puncture

13. 02. 2016 17:27 CET 10 flash info (16 - Solberg Henning / Minor Ilka): We we slowed in the corner where Camilli went off. His car was a long way from the road, so I'm not sure they needed to do that.
13. 02. 2016 17:25 CET 10 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): I had a big moment near the start when I slid wide in a corner. I was lucky to get away with it.
13. 02. 2016 17:23 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): First on the road is not the best position but it's not too bad I hope.
13. 02. 2016 17:21 CET 10 temperature is -4˚C, no snow falling, grey skies
13. 02. 2016 16:17 CET 10 (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): puncture
