02. 10. 2016 12:00 CET 9 (82 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): broken wheel
02. 10. 2016 11:48 CET 9 flash info (40 - Maurin Julien / Thimonier Gilles): Very difficult. We thought it was dry but it was completely humid. The time is good, but not enough to catch Bonato.
02. 10. 2016 11:48 CET 9 flash info (36 - Bonato Yoann / Boulloud Benjamin): Another very hard stage. But we had no problems.
02. 10. 2016 11:47 CET 9 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I'm satisfied with the weekend but this is the first year when it's raining and slippery. I think I missed the experience from last year.
02. 10. 2016 11:46 CET 9 flash info (31 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): I'm happy. The conditions were difficult in there. Felt where we could have gone so much faster in some places and then we were sliding badly in others.
02. 10. 2016 11:45 CET 9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's tricky with some dampness so we calm down when it's like this. When you're in this position, you want to get to the finish.
02. 10. 2016 11:45 CET 9 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I didn't want to take any risks...
02. 10. 2016 11:44 CET 9 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I changed my tactics to go on the safe side. Really damp and you have to change your attack in some corners.
02. 10. 2016 11:44 CET 9 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We tried some different brakes and we've changed the suspension with the roll bars and springs. It was a different way and something of an experiment. But it was a bit better.
02. 10. 2016 11:43 CET 9 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I used notes from last year and it was a stupid mistake. There was a bit in the middle that was really, really fast but the notes were really slow. It was hard to get back into the rhythm.
02. 10. 2016 11:43 CET 9 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I'm not worried about positions at all. I'm focussing on Spain now and we're trying something completely different with the set-up to make it more aggressive – more like my normal driving style.
02. 10. 2016 11:42 CET 9 flash info (4 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I did a very bad stage. It was difficult to learn the grip in the road and I wasn't really concentrated. I went very, very slow in some places.
02. 10. 2016 11:42 CET 9 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): The car is working well. I want to finish the race today and to be on the same time as Mads (Ostberg).
02. 10. 2016 11:41 CET 9 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): We had a puncture and then we got lost on the pace notes.
02. 10. 2016 11:41 CET 9 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): It was a tricky stage, the conditions were changing all the time. I couldn't get into the rhythm.
02. 10. 2016 11:40 CET 9 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It was a lot more dry than I expected and maybe not the best solution with the soft tyres we chose.
02. 10. 2016 11:40 CET 9 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): It was damp in a lot of places and I really concentrated on keeping the heat in the tyres during the dry places so we had some grip when it was damp.
02. 10. 2016 11:38 CET 9 (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): stopped in SS 9
01. 10. 2016 18:10 CET 8 retired (107 - Bensimon Claude / Casaromani François): retired in SS 8
01. 10. 2016 18:05 CET 8 flash info (63 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): There's no reason to try and catch the guys in front from here. It's sensible to stay in third place and go drive again tomorrow.
01. 10. 2016 18:03 CET 8 flash info (33 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): There is a problem with the engine and we also had a spin in a corner.
01. 10. 2016 17:52 CET 8 flash info (40 - Maurin Julien / Thimonier Gilles): We did a good job. We tried a good tyre choice and we took a bit of time to Bonato. I'm happy to end the day like this.
01. 10. 2016 17:49 CET 8 (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): puncture
01. 10. 2016 17:48 CET 8 flash info (31 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): I really concentrated on the technique of driving when it's like this. Clean stage for us.
01. 10. 2016 17:47 CET 8 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Nothing special. We didn't push because we want to finish this leg.
01. 10. 2016 17:40 CET 8 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It's the first time I've done something like that with this car so it's quite a good time. It's beyond what I expected it to be.
01. 10. 2016 17:40 CET 8 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): Water cooling for the tyres is good and no drop off any more. I think we had quite a good run.
01. 10. 2016 17:39 CET 8 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): It's just wet in there but so difficult to judge the grip. I was really lucky in one corner, but we managed through with a rhythm that was as nice as it could be.
01. 10. 2016 17:38 CET 8 flash info (4 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): That was really hard. I had one soft tyre that helped a bit but I couldn't really take any risks. I had some understeer.
01. 10. 2016 17:38 CET 8 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The time is not good. We went very soft with the car on the clicks but it was too soft. Some of the grip was better than I thought
01. 10. 2016 17:36 CET 8 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I went off a little and hit some stones. I had a vibration but then it went.
01. 10. 2016 17:36 CET 8 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): The tyres were a compromise and it changes the balance of the car. But you've got to try something in these conditions.
01. 10. 2016 17:35 CET 8 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I wished I had another soft tyre for the front but it was ok. I think we did a good stage.
01. 10. 2016 17:34 CET 8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Just wanted to finish the day in the tricky conditions. That was really cruising for us.
01. 10. 2016 17:33 CET 8 Changing weather conditions. Somewhere rainy.
01. 10. 2016 17:15 CET 7 retired (118 - Marchand Patrick / Orsatelli Frédéric): retired in SS 7

01. 10. 2016 17:05 CET 7 retired (42 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): technical problem in SS 7
01. 10. 2016 17:01 CET 7 flash info (42 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): Water leak issues, stopped on stage to avoid further damage... We were only just beginning to have fun.
01. 10. 2016 16:49 CET 7 flash info (61 - Tempestini Simone / Bernacchini Giovanni): We had a puncture in the middle of the stage and had to change it. Not happy with that.
01. 10. 2016 16:46 CET 7 (61 - Tempestini Simone / Bernacchini Giovanni): puncture
01. 10. 2016 16:45 CET 7 flash info (63 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): We had the hardest tyres for the front and medium for the rear. It was a nightmare.
01. 10. 2016 16:42 CET 7 flash info (73 - Pellier Laurent / Neyret Gigot Benoit): It was very crazy. Wow.
01. 10. 2016 16:41 CET 7 flash info (72 - Rossel Yohan / Fulcrand Benoît): Incredible. I am very happy to be here!
01. 10. 2016 16:33 CET 7 flash info (40 - Maurin Julien / Thimonier Gilles): The last 10km were very wet and with three hard tyres it was tough.
01. 10. 2016 16:32 CET 7 flash info (36 - Bonato Yoann / Boulloud Benjamin): That was unbelievable! On the wet surface with these tyres it was impossible.
01. 10. 2016 16:24 CET 7 flash info (31 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): It was okay. The grip was okay until we got to the end and then all of a sudden it started raining and it was tricky.
01. 10. 2016 16:21 CET 7 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Difficult with the rain. I prefer to stay cautious.
01. 10. 2016 16:16 CET 7 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): That was really tricky and hard to judge the pace in these conditions.
01. 10. 2016 16:12 CET 7 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): It was wet before the end and it's getting wet quite quickly. We maybe had the wipers on for 10km.
01. 10. 2016 16:11 CET 7 (42 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): stopped after the 32.4km mark in this stage
01. 10. 2016 16:09 CET 7 flash info (4 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I had a good feeling with the car. I tried to drive fast but it looks like I lost a lot of time.
01. 10. 2016 16:08 CET 7 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The brakes are horrible, the car is so difficult to brake.
01. 10. 2016 16:06 CET 7 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I had a very good stage. We made a nice change with the rear differential on the car in service and I now have a but more turn in. That's what I wanted.
01. 10. 2016 16:05 CET 7 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): That was as much as I could do. Car is there or there abouts – it just comes down to my driving. But we can go away and look at all the data after the rally to see where we can improve.
01. 10. 2016 16:04 CET 7 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I think I used my tyres a bit too much in the beginning. They were going off in the end.
01. 10. 2016 16:03 CET 7 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Close to the start we had some rain just before and it was a bit on the limit. Some parts on the road are messy after the first pass but this is normal.
01. 10. 2016 16:00 CET 6 retired (38 - Suárez José António / Carrera Cándido): retired after SS 6
01. 10. 2016 15:34 CET 6 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Basically, I was on the gas when I should have been on the brakes.
01. 10. 2016 15:31 CET 6 retired (113 - Mari Alain / Cesari Jean-Dominique): accident in SS 6
01. 10. 2016 15:30 CET 6 flash info (61 - Tempestini Simone / Bernacchini Giovanni): We have to manage the gearbox because it's still not changing too well. Hopefully we can fix it in service and continue.
01. 10. 2016 15:29 CET 6 flash info (72 - Rossel Yohan / Fulcrand Benoît): That was maximum attack. The set-up is perfect.
01. 10. 2016 15:28 CET 6 (82 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): puncture
01. 10. 2016 15:28 CET 6 flash info (33 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): This was a really fast stage and with lots of good corners. I had a puncture in the first one this morning but it was better here.
01. 10. 2016 15:27 CET 6 (38 - Suárez José António / Carrera Cándido): front-end damage after hitting some rocks at the side of the road
01. 10. 2016 15:25 CET 6 (42 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): front-left puncture 10km before the end
01. 10. 2016 15:24 CET 6 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I tried to push and I don't want to give up. I hope it doesn't rain because that will make the roads very dirty and we won't be able to push this afternoon.
01. 10. 2016 15:24 CET 6 flash info (31 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): I didn't have a great feeling and struggled all the way through. The feeling wasn't quite there.
01. 10. 2016 15:22 CET 6 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): We are a bit too soft on the damper and I'm struggling on the narrow roads where it's dirty.
01. 10. 2016 15:22 CET 6 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I thought that we were fast but the time is completely the opposite. I don't understand.
01. 10. 2016 15:21 CET 6 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Really difficult at the start and the first time I've really been at high speed on these roads.
01. 10. 2016 15:20 CET 6 retired (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): accident in SS 6
01. 10. 2016 15:19 CET 6 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Off the road after hitting a tree. Both Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle are okay.
01. 10. 2016 15:18 CET 6 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): That was a much better feeling when I can focus on the driving.
01. 10. 2016 15:17 CET 6 flash info (4 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): It was good, I lost a bit in the middle of the stage but the car felt much better than in the previous stage.
01. 10. 2016 15:15 CET 6 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I’m not enjoying and I don’t have a great feeling. It’s really annoying me.
01. 10. 2016 15:14 CET 6 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): In the narrow parts, the car is fast and it’s nice but at the end I felt that I was slower in the wider sections
01. 10. 2016 15:11 CET 6 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Things aren't working this morning. We'll have to go back to the drawing board.
01. 10. 2016 15:11 CET 6 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We hit something a couple of times on the inside and feared we'd punctured but all was okay. We saw some cows going into a blind corner on the entry and was expecting the worst. But we kept our foot at full throttle and it was okay.
01. 10. 2016 15:09 CET 6 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): All okay. When not at the limit you lose a bit of time but this is something that I can control at the moment.
01. 10. 2016 15:07 CET 6 (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Stopped just 0.4km into the stage
01. 10. 2016 15:05 CET 6 Despite rain at the Bastia Airport service park, the sun is shining and the sky is blue in SS6.
01. 10. 2016 15:32 CET 5 retired (87 - Clemencon Benjamin / Fouret Jessica): retired after SS 5
01. 10. 2016 15:02 CET 5 Stage was cancelled because of crash st.no.71. Other crews will obtain notional time.
01. 10. 2016 15:01 CET 5 retired (71 - Al Mutawaa Mohammed / Loudon Stuart): accident in SS 5
01. 10. 2016 14:31 CET 5 flash info (61 - Tempestini Simone / Bernacchini Giovanni): Start to have some problems with the downshifing. Maybe because it's getting too hot.
01. 10. 2016 14:31 CET 5 (82 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): spun
01. 10. 2016 14:30 CET 5 (38 - Suárez José António / Carrera Cándido): spun
01. 10. 2016 14:29 CET 5 flash info (36 - Bonato Yoann / Boulloud Benjamin): The car is ok but I am not happy with my driving. I was too slow and braked too early. Not perfect.
01. 10. 2016 14:28 CET 5 flash info (42 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): Going better but the feeling was that I had no grip from the first kilometre to the last one.
01. 10. 2016 14:27 CET 5 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Elfyn (Evans) is doing a great job but we will try to push.
01. 10. 2016 14:27 CET 5 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): The car is bouncing everywhere...
01. 10. 2016 14:26 CET 5 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I drove terrible. I am quite disappointed with my drive but looking at the time it obviously was not that bad.
01. 10. 2016 14:25 CET 5 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): ...that was slow. Everything in my mind is now focused on 2017 seasson...
01. 10. 2016 14:23 CET 5 flash info (4 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We are out of the race because of puncture we made yesterday.
01. 10. 2016 14:22 CET 5 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I know I can improve...in sections where my notes were not the best.
01. 10. 2016 14:21 CET 5 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): No risk and I managed everything very well.
01. 10. 2016 14:21 CET 5 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): We cooked the brakes and they never came back. No confidence for the last two thirds of the stage.
01. 10. 2016 14:19 CET 5 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): That was a really difficult on the tyres and to know how hard to push.
01. 10. 2016 14:18 CET 5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I had a bad start...I was too cautious. I didn't want to risk as this was a stage for punctures.
01. 10. 2016 14:15 CET 5 asphalt is dry and the air temperature is around the 12°C
30. 09. 2016 18:10 CET 4 retired (33 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): retired in SS 4
30. 09. 2016 18:09 CET 4 retired (67 - Berfa Jordan / Augustin Damien): retired in SS 4
30. 09. 2016 17:47 CET 4 flash info (63 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): We lost the front tyres a bit on this stage and we had to reverse on a tight hairpin. But we liked this stage. It's been a good day – apart form the crash with Veiby this morning.
30. 09. 2016 17:31 CET 4 flash info (42 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): The feeling with the car has been improved since this morning but we still lose some time. Might have to do some more work to be more competitive. But really looking forward to tomorrow.
30. 09. 2016 17:31 CET 4 flash info (40 - Maurin Julien / Thimonier Gilles): It was a good day for us. Jan (Kopecky) and Elfyn (Evans) are going very fast and it's hard to catch them if you don't want to take risks. Tomorrow will be important because I think it's the toughest day.
30. 09. 2016 17:27 CET 4 flash info (38 - Suárez José António / Carrera Cándido): It was a good day. We did a big step change this morning with the set up and I have to be happy.
30. 09. 2016 17:26 CET 4 flash info (36 - Bonato Yoann / Boulloud Benjamin): It's been a good day for us. This stage was perfect and fantastic to drive. It's like all the stages in Corsica.
30. 09. 2016 17:25 CET 4 flash info (33 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): It's been a bad day. We've had some problems between SS3 and SS4. We had a problem with the alternator.
30. 09. 2016 17:25 CET 4 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): This is the first time in my life I'm under 2 seconds per km from the lead on tarmac, which at least is something. I'll try to improve.
30. 09. 2016 17:22 CET 4 flash info (31 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): That was okay and felt like a pretty good run. There was lots of gravel on the road that meant I couldn't commit 100% in some of the corners but that's what happens here.
30. 09. 2016 17:21 CET 4 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Struggling with the tyres a bit, I’m killing them too easy.
30. 09. 2016 17:15 CET 4 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): That was a big pleasure. Maybe the best moment of my season because every note was perfect.
30. 09. 2016 17:13 CET 4 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): That stage was good and I'm happy. The puncture in the previous stage was frustrating but we're the second fastest car on this stage and that's positive.
30. 09. 2016 17:12 CET 4 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): I'm trying to drive differently but it doesn't make any difference if we try to push more or less. We'll keep working
30. 09. 2016 17:12 CET 4 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): It's been a difficult day but I'm quite pleased because we're trying something. I said before I started this wouldn't be easy but I'm prepared to take the time that I need. We are getting somewhere.
30. 09. 2016 17:06 CET 4 flash info (4 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): We had a rear puncture. I don't understand because I didn't touch anything. I did some kilometres and tried to stay calm but we had to stop and change the wheel.
30. 09. 2016 17:03 CET 4 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I don't understand how Sébastien can go so fast!
30. 09. 2016 17:01 CET 4 (4 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): puncture
30. 09. 2016 17:00 CET 4 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I pushed hard at the beginning and overheated the tyres. I had to slow down.
30. 09. 2016 16:58 CET 4 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): We had a puncture for the last 8kms.
30. 09. 2016 16:56 CET 4 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We're still in the fight. Séb has been in his own world today – very impressive. Maybe he's in the 2017 car already!
30. 09. 2016 16:55 CET 4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I'm very happy, it's a great day for us. No mistakes – all good so far. Everything was there to enjoy
30. 09. 2016 17:08 CET 3 retired (64 - Folb Terry / Le Floch Franck): accident after SS 3
30. 09. 2016 17:05 CET 3 retired (108 - Gomez Philippe / Mollar Serge): retired in SS 3
30. 09. 2016 17:04 CET 3 Stage was stopped because of crash st.no.99. Other crews will obtain notional time.
30. 09. 2016 17:03 CET 3 retired (99 - Branca Michel / Forns Gérald): accident in SS 3
30. 09. 2016 17:02 CET 3 retired (95 - Baffoun Philippe / Moussier Lionel): retired in SS 3
30. 09. 2016 17:01 CET 3 retired (91 - Fiori Guy / Tavera Julien): retired in SS 3
30. 09. 2016 16:08 CET 3 flash info (73 - Pellier Laurent / Neyret Gigot Benoit): Everything was very good. This is great on my first WRC event.
30. 09. 2016 16:07 CET 3 flash info (72 - Rossel Yohan / Fulcrand Benoît): The feeling with the car is very good. The brakes aren't perfect but it's okay.
30. 09. 2016 16:07 CET 3 flash info (64 - Folb Terry / Le Floch Franck): I went off the road after losing the brakes.
30. 09. 2016 16:01 CET 3 retired (86 - Andolfi Fabio / Fenoli Manuel): technical problem - broken suspension in SS 3
30. 09. 2016 16:00 CET 3 (86 - Andolfi Fabio / Fenoli Manuel): puncture
30. 09. 2016 15:47 CET 3 (64 - Folb Terry / Le Floch Franck): Crashed just after the flying finish.
30. 09. 2016 15:46 CET 3 flash info (62 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): I think we got the rhythm back but my rear axle is bent from this morning's crash with Koci.
30. 09. 2016 15:34 CET 3 flash info (40 - Maurin Julien / Thimonier Gilles): We had a big spin in fifth gear – without that the time would have been very good.
30. 09. 2016 15:34 CET 3 flash info (38 - Suárez José António / Carrera Cándido): The stage was okay. We changed the set-up a bit at lunch and it was better.
30. 09. 2016 15:30 CET 3 flash info (36 - Bonato Yoann / Boulloud Benjamin): The car was fine but it's just the tyres. When you do a 50km stage, they get very hot.
30. 09. 2016 15:29 CET 3 flash info (33 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): The car is working okay but the gearbox didn't allow me to use first gear.
30. 09. 2016 15:28 CET 3 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): We've changed the set-up of the car a little bit and now we have more grip. It will be nice to try and have a battle with Evans.
30. 09. 2016 15:24 CET 3 (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): No intercom from the start of the stage.
30. 09. 2016 15:21 CET 3 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): A little distracting having Kris closing behind me after his puncture.
30. 09. 2016 15:20 CET 3 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I really couldn't push much more in this stage. I had a really good set up and it was a pleasure.
30. 09. 2016 15:19 CET 3 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): We had a puncture early on, no idea where. We had to stop and change. Okay, we're not in the championship but it's frustrating.
30. 09. 2016 15:14 CET 3 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It would be nice to say it was fun to drive but it's quite tricky on these roads right now. We try to learn as much as we can.
30. 09. 2016 15:12 CET 3 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): We are trying but we don't have any brake cooling. Half way through I lost the pedal. I tried to stay focussed but I was struggling to stop the car.
30. 09. 2016 15:09 CET 3 flash info (4 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I think maybe Ogier was sleeping this morning. I had a clear stage - the time is not great but I tried to do my best. It's going better than this morning.
30. 09. 2016 15:08 CET 3 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The set-up is definitely better. The biggest problem I have now is that after 30kms the brakes are a fight.
30. 09. 2016 15:07 CET 3 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Good run, fluid with the car. Just struggled with the brake in the last km.
30. 09. 2016 15:02 CET 3 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): I completely overheated the front tyres with 10kms to go. Maybe I pushed them too hard in the beginning?
30. 09. 2016 15:02 CET 3 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I'm really struggling with the brakes in the last 10kms – I have to push the pedal so hard.
30. 09. 2016 15:01 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Very hot conditions and the tyre was moving a lot. I couldn't really push because of the tyres and I had no idea what rhythm I had at the end. It wasn't easy for me.
30. 09. 2016 17:07 CET 2 retired (34 - Loubet Pierre-Louis / Landais Vincent): technical problem after SS 2
30. 09. 2016 17:06 CET 2 retired (112 - Biau Clément / Cornebise Jérôme): retired after SS 2
30. 09. 2016 12:00 CET 2 retired (41 - Szczepaniak Maciej / Ptaszek Hubert): accident in SS 2
30. 09. 2016 11:59 CET 2 flash info (40 - Maurin Julien / Thimonier Gilles): We tried to push a little bit but did two or three mistakes.
30. 09. 2016 11:56 CET 2 flash info (34 - Loubet Pierre-Louis / Landais Vincent): I lose the power steering half way through the stage.
30. 09. 2016 11:55 CET 2 flash info (33 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): We have a problem with the clutch. The performance is finished.
30. 09. 2016 11:54 CET 2 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I was pushing from the beginning but struggling with the handling of the car a bit – some understeer in places.
30. 09. 2016 11:52 CET 2 flash info (31 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): The car was moving around quite a lot but the time isn't too bad.
30. 09. 2016 11:51 CET 2 flash info (37 - Bertelli Lorenzo / Scattolin Simone): Better feeling but Tarmac is not my favourite surface and I'm struggling a lot. There is a huge difference between my pace on Tarmac and gravel.
30. 09. 2016 11:49 CET 2 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Difficult. We have pushed in the stage but the time was not really there. I don't know.
30. 09. 2016 11:48 CET 2 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): That was a better stage for us and happy with the time. All the other drivers have come fresh from a Tarmac rally in Germany. A lot more quicker than I expected.
30. 09. 2016 11:44 CET 2 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Had a good stage, although quite dirty in a few places. Happy with what we're doing.
30. 09. 2016 11:43 CET 2 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): It's a learning curve at the moment.
30. 09. 2016 11:42 CET 2 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): Hit a bank and some rocks on the outside so a bit lucky there. It felt better in here but I maybe wanted a bit too much and we lost time?
30. 09. 2016 11:41 CET 2 flash info (4 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Felt much better than the first stage but the time was not good. I had a bit of understeer but not the best time.
30. 09. 2016 11:40 CET 2 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Not the time I should be able to do. I don't know. Maybe I was a bit wrong with what I did in the test and thought it would be good for the rally? Maybe the set-up has gone in the wrong direction and the rhythm isn't the greatest either?
30. 09. 2016 11:39 CET 2 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I'm not comfortable all the time. Sometimes I have huge oversteer and then some understeer. It was a bit better than the first stage.
30. 09. 2016 11:38 CET 2 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): The notes were better, but sliding a lot quite a lot especially in the rear.
30. 09. 2016 11:37 CET 2 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Struggling with my foot a little but I think I did an okay time in there. Hopefully I can get a massage and that will work some magic.
30. 09. 2016 11:36 CET 2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Very enjoyable stage. Some work to do on the set-up to be perfect but it's not bad and a good start to the rally for us. Try to get a good felling and, for sure, I was pushing a bit more in this one than I did in the first.
02. 10. 2016 13:17 CET 10 flash info (63 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): I have to be happy that I've only been beaten by the local drivers. It may have been a different rally if we hadn't lost time on the first day.
02. 10. 2016 13:15 CET 10 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Congratulations to Elfyn because he did a great job. There were two stages where we weren't able to match him and that's how we lost the rally to him.
02. 10. 2016 13:14 CET 10 flash info (31 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): We did what we had to do. We had to win to keep the championship hopes alive. The pace has been good and we've had a special edge when we needed it.
02. 10. 2016 13:14 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): That feels great and what we wanted this weekend. This is my first win in Corsica and this is such an historic event. The championship smells quite good for us.
02. 10. 2016 13:13 CET 10 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was a very positive weekend for us, we did a clean run and had a perfect rally. Things are working well with my new engineer.
02. 10. 2016 12:45 CET 10 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I did a couple of mistakes in this one but that was a good rally for us. It's good to be back on the podium.
02. 10. 2016 12:43 CET 10 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I did what I could. There were a couple of places where I braked too early and maybe didn't push. I went the wrong way with my set-up at the beginning of the rally and it didn't work.
02. 10. 2016 12:42 CET 10 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I'm really happy with how the weekend's gone. We showed some strong speed when we needed it and that feels good.
02. 10. 2016 12:41 CET 10 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Today has been more positive and that gives us some confidence for Spain.
02. 10. 2016 12:41 CET 10 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Today has been more positive and that gives us some confidence for Spain.
02. 10. 2016 12:41 CET 10 flash info (4 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): Now our focus turns to Catalunya and my home rally.
02. 10. 2016 12:32 CET 10 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): I'm really happy with this weekend.
02. 10. 2016 12:28 CET 10 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): This rally's been really good practice for me. I haven't set any blinding times but I think we have some really good settings now.
02. 10. 2016 12:26 CET 10 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Difficult to be really precise with the lines. Important thing for this weekend was that I came here and found some speed for next year.

30. 09. 2016 10:56 CET 1 flash info (62 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): We had a problem with the turbo in the stage and no pressure. I'm not sure if we can fix it because we don't have any pipe.
30. 09. 2016 10:56 CET 1 flash info (63 - Koči Martin / Kostka Lukáš): Very strange situation. I was coming to the stage and was warming the brakes. Unfortunately, Veiby crashed into me.
30. 09. 2016 10:54 CET 1 flash info (61 - Tempestini Simone / Bernacchini Giovanni): Our rhythm was really good. After the recce I expected that the road would be dirty but it wasn't so bad. We didn't push at all. The rally is really long.
30. 09. 2016 10:54 CET 1 flash info (84 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): We lost the brakes and that was very difficult for the stage. We will have to look at that.
30. 09. 2016 10:52 CET 1 flash info (83 - Sarrazin Stéphane / Renucci Jacques-Julien): That was really tricky on my first stage with the car. I will need to work with the car for the rest of the rally and try to improve.
30. 09. 2016 10:06 CET 1 flash info (82 - Bouffier Bryan / Giraudet Denis): Tricky stage, I have a lot of understeering. It seems to be not so bad compared to younger guys.
30. 09. 2016 10:05 CET 1 (68 - Brazzoli Enrico / Barone Maurizio): stopped in the stage
30. 09. 2016 10:02 CET 1 flash info (42 - Abbring Kevin / Marshall Sebastian): Really enjoyable. I took it a bit easy as I didn't want to overdrive the tyres. I could have pushed a bit more and some other things I'd like to change on the car.
30. 09. 2016 10:01 CET 1 (41 - Szczepaniak Maciej / Ptaszek Hubert): puncture
30. 09. 2016 10:00 CET 1 (62 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): stopped in the stage
30. 09. 2016 09:59 CET 1 flash info (38 - Suárez José António / Carrera Cándido): I'm not really happy with the setup of the car, it's moving a lot.
30. 09. 2016 09:59 CET 1 flash info (36 - Bonato Yoann / Boulloud Benjamin): It's OK, very difficult, very tricky.
30. 09. 2016 09:58 CET 1 flash info (34 - Loubet Pierre-Louis / Landais Vincent): It was a good stage, we are OK. It will be long and difficult weekend.
30. 09. 2016 09:57 CET 1 flash info (33 - Gilbert Quentin / Jamoul Renaud): We had a big spin, we lost a lot of time. The car is OK.
30. 09. 2016 09:57 CET 1 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I was maybe too careful on the tyres, for the next time I can push right from the start.
30. 09. 2016 09:51 CET 1 flash info (31 - Evans Elfyn / Parry Craig): The rhytm wasn't great because we have an issue with the car, it's overheating.
30. 09. 2016 09:50 CET 1 flash info (6 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Normal, I just wanted to finish the stage. No problem, it's start of the stage.
30. 09. 2016 09:48 CET 1 flash info (8 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): That was a bit of a wake up call. Really struggled to get a rhythm and killed the tyres early. I had to wait for them to come back on again.
30. 09. 2016 09:45 CET 1 flash info (7 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I spun at a hairpin not far into the stage. But I got back into my rhythm straight away and that time is good on a dirty road.
30. 09. 2016 09:44 CET 1 flash info (12 - Tänak Ott / Mõlder Raigo): What can I say, nothing I can really do. We had a lot of understeer, it's another rally we have to survive.
30. 09. 2016 09:41 CET 1 flash info (5 - Østberg Mads / Fløene Ola): That was OK. I'm trying to change my driving on Tarmac. The feeling is completely bad but I'm trying to do something I'm not used to.
30. 09. 2016 09:39 CET 1 flash info (4 - Sordo Dani / Martí Marc): I'm happy with the time. At the end the brakes were little bit gone. The grip was changing a lot, sometimes you have lot of light on the line, sometimes it's dark in the forest.
30. 09. 2016 09:39 CET 1 flash info (2 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's fifty km stage on the start, I took it quite OK. I tried to imporve towards the end. I know I can do better job, I was too cautious now.
30. 09. 2016 09:35 CET 1 flash info (3 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I thought the time was bad. I can't really go for the perfect line because we struggled with understeer. I'm surprised with the time.
30. 09. 2016 09:34 CET 1 flash info (20 - Paddon Hayden / Kennard John): Enjoyable stage, but I was struggling with the pacenotes. It was slower than it could be.
30. 09. 2016 09:31 CET 1 flash info (9 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Everything went OK, but the brake pedal was vibrating. I was struggling to have a proper feeling from the brakes.
30. 09. 2016 09:29 CET 1 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Very long stage, not to easy to find the right rhytm. I think my pacenotes were little bit slow.
