Information

Date and time SS Information
28. 01. 2018 20:59 CET 17 (35 - De Mevius Guillaume / Louka Louis): Obtain penalty because weight of his battery was not in conformity with regulations.
28. 01. 2018 13:26 CET 17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's been a difficult weekend. Often in Monte you have to face hard conditions, but this has been extremely difficult. I've never struggled with the tyres choices so much, but in the end we win and I'm super happy. I need to thank the team for another good start to the season. Every driver did mistakes this weekend, I did ittoo. I made a few less.
28. 01. 2018 13:15 CET 17 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Really happy. It's such a big relief to start the season like this. There's always some excitement when you switch teams and I had no idea what to expect. Here it has been a great relief. The team and the car are amazing. My gravel crew did the best job. Thanks!
28. 01. 2018 13:11 CET 17 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Really, really good to be here. Last time out in Australia wasn't great. I have had a lot of pressure on my shoulders since then.
28. 01. 2018 13:02 CET 17 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I lost the rear on the gravel part and couldn't catch it. We went wide and had no chance to put the reverse on. I can't even describe my disappointment.
28. 01. 2018 13:02 CET 17 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): A horrendous weekend for us. An absolute nightmare. I can't get a feeling with the car. When its good we have to put everything on the line.
28. 01. 2018 13:00 CET 17 (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): was out of road
28. 01. 2018 12:58 CET 17 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We gave it everything. I knew it would be difficult on this stage with what we had. The damage was done on the first one this morning. Disappointed.
28. 01. 2018 12:55 CET 17 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We have done a good rally. Obviously a shame about my mistake on Thursday, but that's Monte. Everybody makes mistakes. Without getting stuck and getting the puncture a podium would have been possible.
28. 01. 2018 12:50 CET 17 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): It was amazing. I am not a young driver but I learned so much this one weekend. Amazing. We are lucky because I lost first gear before this stage warming the tyres! Looking forward to getting back in this fantastic car.
28. 01. 2018 12:47 CET 17 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): A bit of a frustrating weekend. Even now we went into a cut and I stalled in a hairpin. Some good speed at times, but we struggled with our road position yesterday. Onwards and upwards from here.
28. 01. 2018 12:34 CET 17 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I think my tyres were good. We went very slowly on the other stages to save them here. A lot of gravel in there, so I expect conditions to be a bit faster car by car, but we had a good run.
28. 01. 2018 12:09 CET 17 Starting order: 1 Mikkelsen, 2 De Mevius, 3 Kopecký, 4 Breen, 5 Bouffier, 6 Neuville, 7 Evans, 8 Meeke, 9 Lappi, 10 Latvala, 11 Tänak, 12 Ogier
28. 01. 2018 12:05 CET 17 Stage is completely dry.
28. 01. 2018 11:48 CET 16 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): My soft tyres weren't really optimal for this stage. Let's see on the next.
28. 01. 2018 11:34 CET 16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We don't have the right tyres for the Power Stage. There are many drivers on the softs and our super softs are going to suffer a lot there. The plan for us is finish the rally and win it.
28. 01. 2018 11:33 CET 16 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): More or less the same as this morning. Still very hard but we had a clean run.
28. 01. 2018 11:32 CET 16 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's been a tough Sunday but everything is going according the plan. Not too bad but of course you have to be very carefull.
28. 01. 2018 11:28 CET 16 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Straight into a snow bank and I had to reverse. The pace note was correct. I don't know what happened - we just went straight on. Now my super soft tyres are finished. I'll have to use the studs I think.
28. 01. 2018 11:28 CET 16 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Crazy conditions, full black ice. I felt more comfortable on the slicks than on the studs. Okay, I have no idea of my time. We don't know. 'All Live' means nothing for the crews, but the whole world knows.
28. 01. 2018 11:23 CET 16 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The stage was okay but not perfect. We tried, but it looks like Thierry is pushing hard now. Let's see.
28. 01. 2018 11:21 CET 16 (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): was out of the road on same place like Bouffier
28. 01. 2018 11:20 CET 16 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Really tricky conditions but better than this morning. Same for all of us now on the tyres I think. I tried to drive fast.
28. 01. 2018 11:20 CET 16 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): Very bad - I had information that the corner was not frozen but it was. The car is fine. There were not many spectators around - it took time.
28. 01. 2018 11:20 CET 16 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): The road is more polished now. In some places the grip is better but in others it's shiny like glass.
28. 01. 2018 11:13 CET 16 (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): very lucky on same place where Bouffier was off before
28. 01. 2018 11:10 CET 16 (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): was out of road
28. 01. 2018 11:09 CET 16 Similar condition to first loop - first part dry, since Turini lot of ice.
28. 01. 2018 09:55 CET 15 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I'm trying to enjoy it but I must be careful - keep the car in the middle of the. With this lead, I have nothing more to gain but everything to lose.
28. 01. 2018 09:55 CET 15 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I tried to drive at an okay pace to see how it is. An okay stage, a lot of gravel about but we can go faster.
28. 01. 2018 09:45 CET 15 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): No mistake, but I had to stop briefly near the finish, a spectator had set off a flare and I couldn't see through the smoke.
28. 01. 2018 09:43 CET 15 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): This one was tricky. We have a big gap in front and behind, so just keeping it safe.
28. 01. 2018 09:41 CET 15 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Not taking any kind of risks on this stage...
28. 01. 2018 09:33 CET 15 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Coming safely through. We did well on the previous stage so we didn't need to push too hard here.
28. 01. 2018 09:32 CET 15 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Black ice on loose gravel? Just trying to stay on the road to be honest.
28. 01. 2018 09:31 CET 15 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Some discrepancy in the car about Thierry's time from the last stage. I didn't have a great stage, quite a bit of understeer.
28. 01. 2018 09:29 CET 15 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I was surprised by how good my time was in the first one. This one was more tricky than I expected, the gravel was very slippery. I'm not so sure about my rhythm, but it wasn't so bad.
28. 01. 2018 09:28 CET 15 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): I was very slow, it was not easy to find the right pace. Very narrow and slippery.
28. 01. 2018 09:18 CET 15 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Really tricky. A lot more wet and damp than I imagined. I thought the soft tyres would be good. Super soft would have been better. A lot of gravel and frost in places.
28. 01. 2018 09:17 CET 15 Stage is completely dry.
28. 01. 2018 10:29 CET 14 (36 - Sciessere Eddie / Zanella Flavio): puncture
28. 01. 2018 09:14 CET 14 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Our target today is the power stage.
28. 01. 2018 09:06 CET 14 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Others can push if they want but I'm not so keen too. Not in this conditions.
28. 01. 2018 09:05 CET 14 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): More icy than we thought. Luckily we went with the safe tyre option.
28. 01. 2018 09:05 CET 14 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): We had the ice marked on the downhill but there was black ice on the uphill too.
28. 01. 2018 09:04 CET 14 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I think the weather has turned colder since the gravel crews went through. We'll only know whether the tyres were correct at the end of the rally.
28. 01. 2018 08:56 CET 14 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Incredibly slippery. I'm not sure if my tyres were correct. Whether the studs made much difference on the descent.
28. 01. 2018 08:55 CET 14 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): There was ice in the last 7 km and I missed this information in my notes.
28. 01. 2018 08:54 CET 14 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I tried to drive clean and save my tyres. The frost started to get worse and worse.
28. 01. 2018 08:46 CET 14 (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): reversed in hairpin
28. 01. 2018 08:33 CET 14 Tyre choice: Latvala/Lappi/Tänak/Meeke/Ogier/Evans: 2 studs + 2 super soft + 2 soft, Bouffier: 3 super soft + 3 soft, Neuville/Breen: 4 soft + 2 super soft, Mikkelsen: 5 soft
28. 01. 2018 08:31 CET 14 Most of the stage is dry, only from top of Turini some patches of frost and ice.
28. 01. 2018 02:26 CET 13 retired (114 - Studer Sébastien / Studer Maude): maximum time limit exceeded after SS 13
28. 01. 2018 02:25 CET 13 retired (115 - Dessi Marc / Dessi Vanessa): retired in SS 13
28. 01. 2018 02:23 CET 13 retired (94 - Lauzerte Alain / Guerrieri Patrick): retired after SS 13
27. 01. 2018 16:53 CET 13 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): They are so powerful they pull lots more dirt onto the road in the slow corners. Its really noticeable with the 2017 cars. I have to be cautious but at the same time follow their lines.
27. 01. 2018 16:45 CET 13 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): There was a lot of gravel here and not so much to gain. It's all about the Power Stage now, and that means we have to get through today. No risks.
27. 01. 2018 16:45 CET 13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): That means it's all going to plan. I wanted to be 30 seconds ahead tonight. It was very dirty in there, maybe my tyres were not the perfect choice. I was a bit on the limit.
27. 01. 2018 16:41 CET 13 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): In the dirty places the tyres was good but in the dry they were overheating a bit. It's difficult to have the perfect tyre in this stage.
27. 01. 2018 16:40 CET 13 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Good. I mean, it's easier now that when we did the stage on Thursday. I was trying to use what I learned.
27. 01. 2018 16:36 CET 13 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): For sure there is more and more mud on the road. It will get slower and slower I think. Sometimes the sun was in my eyes and I couldn't see so clearly.
27. 01. 2018 16:35 CET 13 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I had a good stage but I stalled in a hairpin and lost one or two secs there. There is more and more mud being pulled out. Let's see how the other guys do - Lappi is the important one.
27. 01. 2018 16:32 CET 13 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): Good fun on this stage. It's unbelievable, going from driving so slowly earlier to now this.
27. 01. 2018 16:31 CET 13 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was okay, but there's a lot of dirt on the road already after just two cars. It would have been easy to trip up. A good stage but slippery in places.
27. 01. 2018 16:29 CET 13 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I tried to do a good stage. I'm on the super-softs, I'm not sure it was the right choice though - okay, it's a compromise.
27. 01. 2018 16:28 CET 13 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It was nice to have a clean road. I really, really enjoyed it. A good feeling in the car, but I wasn't committed enough in a couple of places. If I was in a fight, I reckon it's a stage for soft tyres, but I did my best to make the stage as messy as possible. Let's see how they get on.
27. 01. 2018 16:24 CET 13 A mix of sunshine and shade in this one. In the sunny sections the asphalt is bone dry
27. 01. 2018 16:22 CET 13 Clear blue skies, bright sunshine and a temperature of 11°C
27. 01. 2018 16:05 CET 13 Tyre choice: Ogier 4 Soft + 1 super soft, Evans/Bouffier 5 soft, all other 5 super soft
27. 01. 2018 14:51 CET 12 retired (31 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): technical problem in SS 12
27. 01. 2018 14:39 CET 12 retired (23 - Ciamin Nicolas / De La Haye Thibault): retired in SS 12
27. 01. 2018 14:04 CET 12 flash info (35 - De Mevius Guillaume / Louka Louis): No risks because I think we have a problem with the rear of the car. I just drove to the end and that's it. I need to check in service.
27. 01. 2018 14:01 CET 12 flash info (33 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): The stage before was quite good. This was more difficult on the winter tyres but we are learning and will be faster here next year.
27. 01. 2018 13:58 CET 12 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): The safe option (studded tyres). With our lead we stay on the safe side.
27. 01. 2018 13:49 CET 12 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Quite foggy in there, it was coming and going.
27. 01. 2018 13:49 CET 12 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Try to stay in the lead. I think now we are finished with the snow.
27. 01. 2018 13:45 CET 12 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Nothing special let's say, not trying, a consistent run, I'm not pushing. You should try driving here - these are tricky conditions.
27. 01. 2018 13:43 CET 12 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Good. I was trying. After the puncture on the previous stage, I was trying really hard. A good run.
27. 01. 2018 13:39 CET 12 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Very slippery at the end. The mud was a problem here - not the ice.
27. 01. 2018 13:38 CET 12 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): With Esapekka Lappi's puncture we're up to 4th, but he's not far behind. We lost a bit in here.
27. 01. 2018 13:37 CET 12 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): We have two studded and two snow tyres. The studs were very slippery in the mud. We have good fun.
27. 01. 2018 13:36 CET 12 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I pushed a bit more in this one, but there was a lot of gravel and the road was very slippery. I enjoyed it though - the first enjoyable one today.
27. 01. 2018 13:33 CET 12 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Pretty hairy on this mix of tyres, but we're making progress up the leaderboard. Incredibly slippery and grimy at the end.
27. 01. 2018 13:30 CET 12 (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): was out of road
27. 01. 2018 13:24 CET 12 Most of the stage is wet tarmac.
27. 01. 2018 12:06 CET 12 Start of stage will be delayed for 3 minutes.
27. 01. 2018 13:54 CET 11 retired (25 - Nucita Andrea / Vozzo Marco): accident in SS 11
27. 01. 2018 13:53 CET 11 retired (84 - Vuistiner Ismaël / Kummer Florine): accident in SS 11
27. 01. 2018 13:53 CET 11 retired (63 - Franceschi Jean-Baptiste / Courbon Romain): accident in SS 11
27. 01. 2018 13:52 CET 11 (31 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): technical problem in SS 11
27. 01. 2018 13:50 CET 11 retired (71 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): accident in SS 11
27. 01. 2018 13:40 CET 11 flash info (35 - De Mevius Guillaume / Louka Louis): I don't know what is wrong but in the middle of the stage I took a cut, hit something and now something is wrong at the rear. We need to go and look.
27. 01. 2018 13:22 CET 11 (31 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): stopped in stage
27. 01. 2018 12:56 CET 11 flash info (33 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): We have made some changes with the team and now it feels better.
27. 01. 2018 12:55 CET 11 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Now it is much better than the morning. We don't need to hurry up, but we can still enjoy the drive.
27. 01. 2018 12:51 CET 11 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): A clean stage. A bit careful in places.
27. 01. 2018 12:50 CET 11 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I'm not in the position to take risks. I think I have a good gap. It's ok.
27. 01. 2018 12:46 CET 11 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): This was a lucky place where we went off. Tricky with the black top .
27. 01. 2018 12:46 CET 11 (71 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): stopped in stage
27. 01. 2018 12:43 CET 11 (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): out of the road in SS11 at the same place as Neuville and Bouffier
27. 01. 2018 12:42 CET 11 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Not good news about Esapekka (Lappi changed the wheel in SS). I'm sorry for him. Conditions are less tricky now.
27. 01. 2018 12:39 CET 11 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): We went wide in a junction , there was a lot of fog and I went off into the field. Maybe we lost eight seconds.
27. 01. 2018 12:33 CET 11 (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): puncture, changing tyre
27. 01. 2018 12:32 CET 11 (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): out of the road in SS11 at the same place as Neuville
27. 01. 2018 12:30 CET 11 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We were quite clean, tried to stay in the ruts. We had some studs on the car but in these conditions we didn't need them.
27. 01. 2018 12:29 CET 11 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We went into a field under braking because there was huge aquaplaning. I know I wasn't the first. We had a small spin earlier. We went backwards when we touched the snow.
27. 01. 2018 12:28 CET 11 (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): was out of road
27. 01. 2018 12:26 CET 11 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): There were tricky places and a bit of fog. I could only see 30 or 40 metres ahead on the 1 kilometre straight. Really good fun.
27. 01. 2018 12:20 CET 11 (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): was out of road
27. 01. 2018 12:20 CET 11 (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): missed junction
27. 01. 2018 12:13 CET 11 (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): spun
27. 01. 2018 12:05 CET 11 Start of stage was delayed for 3 minutes.
27. 01. 2018 12:03 CET 11 Tyre choice: Ogier/Neuville/Mikkelsen/Breen/Meeke: 4 winter + 2 studded, Evans/Bouffier: 3 winter + 3 studded, Latvala/Tänak/Lappi: 5 winter
27. 01. 2018 12:01 CET 11 Almost no snow on road, mostly slash or standing water.
27. 01. 2018 12:00 CET 11 Start will be delayed due to spectators.
27. 01. 2018 10:03 CET 10 flash info (31 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): It was always my dream to drive Rallye Monte Carlo, but in these conditions I'm not sure I'm enjoying it.
27. 01. 2018 10:03 CET 10 flash info (33 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): This last stage was a bit easier. I still need to improve.
27. 01. 2018 10:03 CET 10 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It was really difficult on the first stage. We are leading and the gap is so big - it's difficult to drive like this and get to the finish. It's crazy. Not easy.
27. 01. 2018 10:02 CET 10 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Apart from the Power Stage I don't have much to go for. Just driving to what feels right.
27. 01. 2018 10:02 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): More cautious run. Backing off a little more, it's never fun in the slush. Happy so far, but I'm sure the afternoon will be difficult again.
27. 01. 2018 10:02 CET 10 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The stage was a lot better than the one before but it seems we have a problem with our dampers. They are solid. We need to check them in service.
27. 01. 2018 10:01 CET 10 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): This was a bit better. Melting down a bit. The previous one was not on this planet. This is why the Monte is such a legendary rally.
27. 01. 2018 10:01 CET 10 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): This was easier. The downhill part was open, not so much snow and ice. The first stage was like Turinin in 2013/4.
27. 01. 2018 10:01 CET 10 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Tricky. I tried my best and I'm still trying to be very careful. With big gaps in front and behind I'm just trying to managing it. But even that's not easy.
27. 01. 2018 10:01 CET 10 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): A bit better, we are in a typical Monte Carlo Rallye for sure. The car is good fun to drive.
27. 01. 2018 10:00 CET 10 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): A bit better than expected to be honest. The snow had gone from the downhill section. An okay stage.
27. 01. 2018 10:00 CET 10 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Much easier than the first one. A good stage. A shame the battle with Evans isn't closer. We continue - the day is long and many surprises still to come.
27. 01. 2018 10:00 CET 10 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): A big contrast between conditions here and the slush at the start. I was aquaplaning on top of the slush. Hats off to my ice note crew.
27. 01. 2018 09:20 CET 10 (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): half-spun
27. 01. 2018 09:16 CET 10 Stage is full of snow and foggy. But road should be melting. Completely no snow towards the finish.

27. 01. 2018 09:22 CET 9 flash info (71 - Veiby Ole Christian / Skjærmoen Stig Rune): Went off in one corner, also hit the rear right in a side wall. Couple of spins. Puncture. That pretty much sums up our experience. Very tricky conditions.
27. 01. 2018 09:11 CET 9 (34 - Abbring Kevin / Tsjoen Pieter): was out of road, damaged radiator
27. 01. 2018 09:10 CET 9 flash info (35 - De Mevius Guillaume / Louka Louis): Just one small spin near the start, but crazy conditions.
27. 01. 2018 09:10 CET 9 flash info (35 - De Mevius Guillaume / Louka Louis): Just one small spin near the start, but crazy conditions. I was very careful everywhere.
27. 01. 2018 09:05 CET 9 flash info (33 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): At least we finished the stage, but I'm not happy. There are some things we need to change about my driving.
27. 01. 2018 09:05 CET 9 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): I had a big moment near the start. In the slush I was driving at recce speed. The car was doing nothing.
27. 01. 2018 09:04 CET 9 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): This is proper Monte Carlo. Really difficult conditions. We spun three times in a straight line.
27. 01. 2018 09:00 CET 9 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): One of the worst stages in my career. It was super tricky, I was watching the lines in the road and they were going everywhere. I passed Sordo in a ditch.
27. 01. 2018 08:55 CET 9 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): A few places you try you are out immediately. No chance to push at all. I didn't enjoy the spins and things - definitely not enjoyable.
27. 01. 2018 08:51 CET 9 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I think you can really win a lot of time on this stage if you want to try. For me it's not about that, I really didn't want to crash. I guess it was quite slow but ok.
27. 01. 2018 08:50 CET 9 (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): spun
27. 01. 2018 08:49 CET 9 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Snow can be nice, but this was not nice. Melting, soft snow, slush. Go wide and you don't know where you're going to end up.
27. 01. 2018 08:48 CET 9 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I have no idea how this time will compare. In these conditions it's the most challenging. I had one spin, I lost about 12 seconds.
27. 01. 2018 08:47 CET 9 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): No spin...drive safe.
27. 01. 2018 08:46 CET 9 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I lost the rear in the braking. It was safer to let it spin. You never know in these conditions. I tried to stay in the cleanest one.
27. 01. 2018 08:45 CET 9 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Some clean lines towards the end and getting cleaner but it's so easy to get out of the line. I tried to be steady and efficient but it will get faster for those behind.
27. 01. 2018 08:40 CET 9 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Holy God, that was pretty incredible. A track the width of a tyre in the road and the moment you get off it...it's over.
27. 01. 2018 08:34 CET 9 retired (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): accident in SS 9

27. 01. 2018 08:23 CET 9 (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): spun
27. 01. 2018 08:18 CET 9 Some fog on the stage. Raining at finish, but road still full of snow.
27. 01. 2018 08:07 CET 9 Tyre choice: Ogier/Latvala/Lappi/Tanak/Sordo: 5 studded, Evans/Bouffier/Neuville/Mikkelsen/Breen/Meeke: 6 studded
27. 01. 2018 08:06 CET 9 Proper Monte is here. Stage is full of snow.
26. 01. 2018 17:26 CET 8 flash info (35 - De Mevius Guillaume / Louka Louis): Happy to be at the end. The hardest rally I have done.
26. 01. 2018 17:26 CET 8 flash info (34 - Abbring Kevin / Tsjoen Pieter): Apart from the middle stage we enjoyed a good pace. We know where we have to be with the tyres now and have found a lovely rhythm.
26. 01. 2018 17:24 CET 8 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It was disappointing to see the other guys hit problems today. It was a good battle with Eric Camilli but I've been in this sport a long time and sometimes this is rallying. Since I saw Eric in trouble I've been taking it easier - a little more careful.
26. 01. 2018 17:18 CET 8 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): Still difficult, but a couple of good times times. Not that bad, safe, no mistakes. Now I need a good rest ahead of tomorrow.
26. 01. 2018 17:16 CET 8 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It's nice to see that even with the same speed I can fight for some positions. Ok, maybe I'm getting there. I need to do a good step if I want to fight for victories in the future but for now I'm quite pleased with the performance.
26. 01. 2018 17:09 CET 8 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): An encouraging day, building confidence.
26. 01. 2018 17:08 CET 8 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): Much better grip than the previous stage but still difficult.
26. 01. 2018 17:04 CET 8 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The car feels perfect, it's great to be here in this position and fighting.
26. 01. 2018 17:02 CET 8 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The car was working really nicely, I tried to use all the road, keep it smooth and clean. Where can I finish? I don't know. In some stages we have caught 30 sec so anything is possible.
26. 01. 2018 17:01 CET 8 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's been difficult for sure, but we are here and still in the leading position. Without the spin I would be a minute in the lead, but to be leading I have to be happy. Tomorrow I will need to be good.
26. 01. 2018 16:48 CET 8 No more rain, stage is getting dry.
26. 01. 2018 16:00 CET 7 retired (76 - Sarrazin Stéphane / Renucci Jacques-Julien): accident in SS 7
26. 01. 2018 15:57 CET 7 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Really heavy rain, so a lot of aquaplaning, lots of mud and poor visibility. It got a bit better, but I needed to be careful on the blacktop - it's like ice.
26. 01. 2018 15:55 CET 7 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): A lot of blacktop, sliding, aquaplaning. A demanding stage. We drive safe.
26. 01. 2018 15:51 CET 7 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It's getting more tricky. A lot of water flowing like rivers. The road is extremely slippery. It's tricky but we are here.
26. 01. 2018 15:49 CET 7 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Really tricky. The car and the tyres are working well but in the position I'm in I didn't want to do anything stupid. I need to wait for somebody else to make a mistake.
26. 01. 2018 15:46 CET 7 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): A difficult stage and I lost time because the windscreen was fogged. I couldn't see the inside of the corners.
26. 01. 2018 15:44 CET 7 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The feeling inside the car was really good. I got a lot of confidence from what was going on. Some slippery sections but for the majority the grip was incredible.
26. 01. 2018 15:43 CET 7 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): On tarmac good grip but on blacktop no grip and in standing water no grip.
26. 01. 2018 15:43 CET 7 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Very tricky. A lot of mud. In these conditions I have a lot of room to improve. I don't yet have full confidence.
26. 01. 2018 15:37 CET 7 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Horrible conditions. Aquaplaning, a lot of mud, and fog on the side windows meant I couldn't see the cuts. I tried my best. Couldn't do much more.
26. 01. 2018 15:35 CET 7 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I spin again in a hairpin and got stuck in a ditch. We lost about 30 seconds I think. Very difficult conditions.
26. 01. 2018 15:31 CET 7 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): slide into ditch, continue
26. 01. 2018 15:10 CET 7 Heavy rain and some fog on stage.
26. 01. 2018 22:03 CET 6 (93 - Baffoun Philippe / Yonnet Fabien): was out of road
26. 01. 2018 16:32 CET 6 retired (118 - Desbordes Richard / Fustier Jean-Luc): retired after SS 6

26. 01. 2018 15:43 CET 6 retired (87 - Poizot Thibaut / Grand Marion): retired in SS 6
26. 01. 2018 14:40 CET 6 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It started to rain shortly before the start, so the full stage was damp for us. When I saw that Eric Camilli had stopped, I slowed down.
26. 01. 2018 14:37 CET 6 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): Very difficult conditions, but more fun. Things are tricky and we have to be more concentrated.
26. 01. 2018 14:35 CET 6 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): We got a taste of this one earlier and my gravel crew did a good job, so it wasn't so bad. For me, it felt ok.
26. 01. 2018 14:34 CET 6 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): The car feels better but it's incredibly tricky. I didn't get a clean run earlier here, but this was not so bad.
26. 01. 2018 14:34 CET 6 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): There's mud on the road but not enough rain to wash it away. The surface is very greasy.
26. 01. 2018 14:30 CET 6 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): Now it's really raining and in this mix of tyres I had to take it a little bit careful.
26. 01. 2018 14:26 CET 6 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The stage was full damp for us everywhere, dry as we expected. Not ideal for us.
26. 01. 2018 14:26 CET 6 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Feeling better than this morning. I'm a bit happier with the car. In some places the rain has made it very slippery, in others it is still dry. It's 50/50. You need a bit of margin.
26. 01. 2018 14:26 CET 6 With later crews there is more rain.
26. 01. 2018 14:25 CET 6 retired (31 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): accident in SS 2
26. 01. 2018 14:24 CET 6 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): A little concerned about managing my tyres this weekend.
26. 01. 2018 14:08 CET 6 Tyre choice: Ogier/Evans/Bouffier/Neuville/Sordo: 4 super soft + 2 soft, Latvala: 4 super soft + 1 soft, Tanak/Lappi: 5 super soft, Meeke/Breen: 6 super soft
26. 01. 2018 14:06 CET 6 Road is more damp than in first loop.
26. 01. 2018 13:22 CET 5 retired (111 - Oberti Damien / Escartefigue Thomas): retired after SS 5
26. 01. 2018 12:17 CET 5 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Brakes. I got a stone between the bleed nipple and the rim on the first stage and that broke it. We had three brakes for the next stage and now I have nothing. I can barely stop. Not nice.
26. 01. 2018 12:16 CET 5 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): This was the cleanest stage on the loop. A bit more damp, more enjoyable than the previous one, which was a nightmare. Craig has a problem, he was slow to leave the line and let us past very well, so thanks a lot.
26. 01. 2018 12:01 CET 5 (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): problems with brakes
26. 01. 2018 11:54 CET 5 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I can't be happy after our problems and the puncture today, but we are back in the top ten and now I think maybe top five is possible. The rally is still very long.
26. 01. 2018 11:53 CET 5 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Not so happy with my drive on this one, the conditions were much drier than we thought. Not the best for these super soft tyres, so we were a bit on the safe side - but overall not a bad loop.
26. 01. 2018 15:07 CET 4 (92 - Bonato Yoann / Boulloud Benjamin): problems with brakes
26. 01. 2018 15:06 CET 4 (74 - Giordano Quentin / Landais Vincent): puncture
26. 01. 2018 12:08 CET 4 retired (107 - Chareyre Hugues / Duval Jean-Luc): retired in SS 4
26. 01. 2018 10:47 CET 4 retired (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): technical problem - alternator before SS 4
26. 01. 2018 10:47 CET 4 flash info (3 - Bouffier Bryan / Panseri Xavier): Ok, a bit more grippy.
26. 01. 2018 10:45 CET 4 retired (33 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): accident in SS 4
26. 01. 2018 10:42 CET 4 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Safe, but it's crazy with the dirt. The drivers ahead are cutting like hell.
26. 01. 2018 10:42 CET 4 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Still no brakes. I've lost the rears completely now.
26. 01. 2018 10:41 CET 4 (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): I am not sure if I made the best tyre choice.
26. 01. 2018 10:39 CET 4 (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): problems with brakes
26. 01. 2018 10:38 CET 4 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): It's ok, but we made a mistake in the service with our tyres. A misunderstanding. We had the wrong ones for the previous stage and now we have two hard tyres at the front.
26. 01. 2018 10:37 CET 4 (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Changing alternator belt on liaison before SS 4.
26. 01. 2018 10:32 CET 4 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The stage was okay, but I don't know what the best tyre choice was. Mine overheated a bit towards the end, it was hard to find a rhythm.
26. 01. 2018 10:28 CET 4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): I think I was a bit wrong with the tyres. I expected more humidity, still, there was a bit of damp which helped the super softs to survive. My lead is okay, but in one stage you can lose a lot here, so even this gap isn't really much.
26. 01. 2018 10:16 CET 4 More wet later in the stage.
26. 01. 2018 10:05 CET 4 Stage is mostly dry, but it is starting to slightly rain.
26. 01. 2018 12:25 CET 3 (72 - Burri Olivier / Levratti Anderson): was out of road
26. 01. 2018 12:25 CET 3 (25 - Nucita Andrea / Vozzo Marco): problems with engine

26. 01. 2018 09:38 CET 3 flash info (34 - Abbring Kevin / Tsjoen Pieter): Quite nice to have a stage to get the rhythm back, but we lost the brakes again at the end, so something we have to look at.
26. 01. 2018 09:36 CET 3 flash info (33 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Ok, but we can go faster.
26. 01. 2018 09:33 CET 3 flash info (32 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): Better than last night, at least we can see the road today. My soft tyre choice was good I think.
26. 01. 2018 09:33 CET 3 flash info (31 - Camilli Eric / Veillas Benjamin): Still happy this morning. A dry stage and very pleasant to drive.
26. 01. 2018 09:30 CET 3 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I went straight on at a junction and had to turn around. Not so good. A very dirty road. Tricky.
26. 01. 2018 09:27 CET 3 (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): missed junction
26. 01. 2018 09:27 CET 3 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Quite steady. Lots of dirt in the road. Many surprises and you need to react immediately.
26. 01. 2018 09:26 CET 3 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): No brakes. I hit a stone in the road and something is broken. I had literally nothing for about 10 km.
26. 01. 2018 09:24 CET 3 (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): problems with brakes
26. 01. 2018 09:23 CET 3 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Ok, not bad, but a lot more greasy and damp than I expected. A lot of mud on the road. Whether we got the tyre choice right I don't know.
26. 01. 2018 09:21 CET 3 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): Not so bad but I struggled a little in the middle in the damp. I didn't push too hard. We take three soft tyres and two super softs, I don't know if its a good choice.
26. 01. 2018 09:20 CET 3 (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): going slowly
26. 01. 2018 09:18 CET 3 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Generally ok but not perfect. Slippery, difficult but ok.
26. 01. 2018 09:17 CET 3 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Everything is ok, but it's difficult to say how the stage was. In some places quite slippy and I didn't get the best feeling in the car - too much understeer.
26. 01. 2018 09:16 CET 3 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The middle section was damp as expected. Very tough but ok, we are here.
26. 01. 2018 09:13 CET 3 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): No idea what happened. 10 km before the end we got a slow puncture alarm. We continued, which was the right decision. After what happened yesterday it doesn't really matter so much.
26. 01. 2018 09:11 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Only a short road section, so we have to go, but everything is okay. An ok stage for us. Some very greasy sections, but ok.
26. 01. 2018 09:11 CET 3 (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): puncture
26. 01. 2018 09:03 CET 3 Tyre choice: Ogier/Evans/Bouffier/Neuville : 4 super soft + 2 soft, Mikkelsen/Latvala/Tanak/Meeke/Breen: 2 super soft + 4 soft, Sordo: 2 super soft + 3 soft, Lappi: 3 super soft + 3 soft
26. 01. 2018 08:55 CET 3 Stage is completely dry with some damp places.

25. 01. 2018 23:33 CET 2 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Lot of gravel being pulled out on the road. I'm quite happy to be second to Seb.
25. 01. 2018 23:30 CET 2 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): The target was not to make mistakes. The pace is not the best but it's not so easy to drive on this dirt.
25. 01. 2018 23:27 CET 2 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): I didn't have enough time before the stage to get the right set-up. I have three bar in the front tyres and I had a spin in here.
25. 01. 2018 23:24 CET 2 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): A stupid spin.
25. 01. 2018 23:23 CET 2 (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): spun
25. 01. 2018 23:22 CET 2 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): Very dirty in places here, but we pass the first day so it' is ok.
25. 01. 2018 23:20 CET 2 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): We have one spare wheel so I had to be carefull, not aggressive in the cuts. Not feeling happy on throttle, I had a half spin here on throttle.
25. 01. 2018 23:18 CET 2 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We played a gamble here. We had three super soft tyres. Sometimes you have to do that.
25. 01. 2018 23:16 CET 2 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It was much more like a tarmac stage. We managed to improve a bit.
25. 01. 2018 23:09 CET 2 (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): stopped in stage, continue
25. 01. 2018 22:51 CET 2 Around 60% of the stage is dry. At the end are some gravel and dirty places.

25. 01. 2018 22:44 CET 1 flash info (34 - Abbring Kevin / Tsjoen Pieter): I was just following the lines however we had a puncture in a deep cut. After that we lost the brakes.
25. 01. 2018 22:42 CET 1 flash info (35 - De Mevius Guillaume / Louka Louis): We had three spins in the stage and a gearbox problem but we survived.
25. 01. 2018 22:41 CET 1 (35 - De Mevius Guillaume / Louka Louis): spun
