20. 05. 2018 16:53 CET
20 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We had a clever approach all weekend and the team was behind me pushing me all weekend. I think we can be proud of what we achieved. I think it was important to be consistent to the end. I had two spare wheels and I tried to go for it and it worked very well.
20. 05. 2018 15:53
20. 05. 2018 16:53 CET
20 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Thanks, it was well overdue really. We've not had a great start to the year but hopefully this is a sign of more positive things to come.
20. 05. 2018 15:53
20. 05. 2018 16:53 CET
20 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): The feeling is so great, first podium ever in the WRC. It took a year, but I'm so happy.
20. 05. 2018 15:52
20. 05. 2018 16:52 CET
20 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It's been a great two days to be honest, I've never pushed so hard! It's been a learning curve to drive on the limit for one and a half days.
20. 05. 2018 15:52
20. 05. 2018 16:52 CET
20 flash info (16 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I had a problem with the screen because it is completely broken, on some corners it was difficult to see. It was disappointing not being able to finish on the podium but I did it for the people.
20. 05. 2018 15:52
20. 05. 2018 16:52 CET
20 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It was a good stage, I saved it all day. It's a long time since I did a rally on this level and I didn't know if I could increase the speed but I'm really happy with my time on this stage. I'm sorry to all the fans for only doing a small jump but I wanted to save the car for the team.
20. 05. 2018 15:52
20. 05. 2018 16:52 CET
20 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Not so good feeling about the weekend, I enjoyed it but like I said when you're the opener when you're the championship leader is nice but when you're not it isn't! I'm looking forward to Sardinia.
20. 05. 2018 15:51
20. 05. 2018 16:51 CET
20 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It is not really the weekend we hoped for but the car was working well and we were able to push for quick stage times. The team have done a great job with the car and I hope Thierry can take the win for the team because they deserve it.
20. 05. 2018 15:51
20. 05. 2018 16:51 CET
20 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): With this position I couldn't go faster, I don't think it will be enough because it is still cleaning quite a bit.
20. 05. 2018 15:50
20. 05. 2018 16:50 CET
20 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is going to be okay, but I think the fastest time is going to be 39 or 38 today, the opening section was quite slippy and I think it will still clean up.
20. 05. 2018 15:49
20. 05. 2018 16:49 CET
20 Starting order to Power Stage: 1. Lefebvre, 2. Pieniazek, 3. Tidemand, 4. Latvala, 5. Ogier, 6. Mikkelsen, 7. Breen, 8. Østberg, 9. Sordo, 10. Lappi, 11. Suninen, 12. Evans, 13. Neuville
20. 05. 2018 15:48
20. 05. 2018 16:48 CET
19 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We have been waiting for the Power Stage since Friday afternoon! The first run went fine for me, I hope an earlier time on the road will give me a good chance but we will always try.
20. 05. 2018 15:48
20. 05. 2018 16:48 CET
19 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It is all going to plan, we're trying to save tyres.
20. 05. 2018 15:48
20. 05. 2018 16:48 CET
19 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I don't know how the Power Stage will go, I will follow my feeling once I start the stage, we will see. I will try and keep it on the road and if I can I'll try and claim at least 1 or 2 points.
20. 05. 2018 15:48
20. 05. 2018 16:48 CET
19 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Got through the stages all ok.
20. 05. 2018 15:47
20. 05. 2018 16:47 CET
19 flash info (16 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I smashed the windscreen on this stage, we took a stone with the splitter and it came up and hit. I think there was a cut in the road and that's when it hit the splitter. But we had more grip on that stage.
20. 05. 2018 15:47
20. 05. 2018 16:47 CET
19 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It has been really consistent speed, now my driving has been more efficient. I've been taking it carefully and the speed has come. I don't want to think about the podium, just doing the best work I can.
20. 05. 2018 15:47
20. 05. 2018 16:47 CET
19 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Yeah it is still close! It is tough to gain any seconds to be honest but I'm trying all the time. Let's see how we finish, but it is tough definitely.
20. 05. 2018 15:47
20. 05. 2018 16:47 CET
19 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): This was really the first stage where the car was supposed to work and I had a nice feeling. The car worked well and it was a good stage.
20. 05. 2018 15:46
20. 05. 2018 16:46 CET
19 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Yeah I'm enjoying it, hopefully in the future this is something we'll have to put up with on more regular occasions.
20. 05. 2018 15:44
20. 05. 2018 16:44 CET

20. 05. 2018 15:41
20. 05. 2018 16:41 CET
17 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I'm now more focussing on the notes and the rocks and being careful on the tyres so they are better for the Power Stage.
20. 05. 2018 15:41
20. 05. 2018 16:41 CET
17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): That's the only target we have for the weekend - five Power Stage points. It is great to see so many spectators, it is a magic place to rally.
20. 05. 2018 15:41
20. 05. 2018 16:41 CET
17 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We will try and go for as many points as we can. We're saving the good mapping for then.
20. 05. 2018 15:40
20. 05. 2018 16:40 CET
17 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It is just for safety, if I have a puncture I'll be safe with two tyres. On this stage I feel the rear is moving a lot, it is going to be difficult for the Power Stage.
20. 05. 2018 15:40
20. 05. 2018 16:40 CET
17 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Obviously I want some Power Stage points! But let's see what position we're in by the time we get to then.
20. 05. 2018 15:40
20. 05. 2018 16:40 CET
17 flash info (16 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): The stage before the car was sliding a lot on the rear, okay we have one tyre used at the beginning of the loop so we don't have many soft tyres. We lost quite a bit of time to Suninen on the first stage.
20. 05. 2018 15:40
20. 05. 2018 16:40 CET
17 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I really want to be on the podium - we are pushing quite a lot.
20. 05. 2018 15:39
20. 05. 2018 16:39 CET
17 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It is a big battle but the gap is too big. I'm doing everything I can but I can't go faster. Teemu is doing a really good job.
20. 05. 2018 15:39
20. 05. 2018 16:39 CET
17 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I lacked traction on the stage, it is no drama at all - the balance of the car is nice but it is too stiff for the first pass.
20. 05. 2018 15:38
20. 05. 2018 16:38 CET
17 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Not great to be honest, it is frustrating to be first on the road. I sound like a broken record but with nothing to fight for it is tough to be opening the road.
20. 05. 2018 16:01
20. 05. 2018 17:01 CET
16 (72 - Williams Tom / Hall Phil): rolled
20. 05. 2018 15:38
20. 05. 2018 16:38 CET
16 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I tried to stay on a good rhythm through the first few stages and then afterwards we'll see what we can do, but the most important thing for us is the Power Stage.
20. 05. 2018 15:38
20. 05. 2018 16:38 CET
16 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): All ok, it was extremely slippery out there, a lot more loose than expected.
20. 05. 2018 15:38
20. 05. 2018 16:38 CET
16 flash info (16 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I tried to do as well as possible but it is very slippery.
20. 05. 2018 15:37
20. 05. 2018 16:37 CET
16 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Everything is tough but luckily it is only 0.6sec. It was soft on the first few corners, I just need to improve the driving and I believe we can do it.
20. 05. 2018 15:37
20. 05. 2018 16:37 CET
16 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It is good to be ahead but one or two seconds is not going to be enough! We need more! It was a pretty nice drive.
20. 05. 2018 15:37
20. 05. 2018 16:37 CET
16 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): We have done a setup for this afternoon, it doesn't feel good this morning but I knew the car would be too stiff and difficult - it should be good for the Power Stage though.
20. 05. 2018 15:37
20. 05. 2018 16:37 CET
16 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): Very loose, it has been dry - no rain. So just driving through really. Let's see where we start on the road for the Power Stage.

20. 05. 2018 16:32 CET
15 flash info (37 - Pieniążek Łukasz / Mazur Przemysław): Today I didn't have luck, I got a puncture on the previous stage and now I need to keep pushing to secure our position on the podium.
20. 05. 2018 15:32
20. 05. 2018 16:32 CET
15 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Yeah it was a good stage, I tried to push but I know I'm losing at the end - it is so rough and I'm just wanting to protect the car.
20. 05. 2018 15:32
20. 05. 2018 16:32 CET
15 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Yeah it has been hard work. Everyone knows when you fight for nothing it is not much fun, but we were consistently fast this afternoon so at least there were some positives.
20. 05. 2018 15:31
20. 05. 2018 16:31 CET
15 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I landed a bit on the front on this jump, I tried to go full on this one but we lost some time because of the engine power. I want to try and get as many points as possible on the Live TV Power Stage tomorrow.
20. 05. 2018 15:31
20. 05. 2018 16:31 CET
15 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I knew I could make the difference again here. I had a nice clean run, it is a beautiful stage. There are some wet corners and I can see some people went wide, I just braked early and turned in tighter.
20. 05. 2018 15:30
20. 05. 2018 16:30 CET
15 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): I wasn't entirely happy with the stage to be honest, felt the same as it did this morning in the second half. Overall, I'm happy with how the day has gone.
20. 05. 2018 15:30
20. 05. 2018 16:30 CET
15 flash info (16 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): After that there is something strange on the car, when I come to the throttle it only goes to the rear and it spins. I know I can do better.
20. 05. 2018 15:30
20. 05. 2018 16:30 CET
15 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): Wasn't the best run for me, at the beginning I was struggling the balance of the car when the hard and softs were crossed - I need to learn how to drive the car when it is like this.
20. 05. 2018 15:29
20. 05. 2018 16:29 CET
15 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I'm afraid it's not enough, the whole afternoon I've been flat-out. I've add had so many moments but I can't push any harder. I can't take any tenths out from Teemu or Dani.
20. 05. 2018 15:29
20. 05. 2018 16:29 CET
15 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It has been a tough day for sure. Today I think we managed the set-up well in the morning but in the afternoon not everything worked out from the changes we suggested. It is hard to do 38km when you are not happy with the car. Some sections are nice but at least I could enjoy the landscape.
20. 05. 2018 15:28
20. 05. 2018 16:28 CET
15 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): There was bits and pieces of rain, probably more at the start and the humidity was up at places. But we got through and got the day out of the way.
20. 05. 2018 15:28
20. 05. 2018 16:28 CET
15 (16 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): spun

20. 05. 2018 16:24 CET
14 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Miikka and I were discussing the conditions, how much it had affected the cars ahead. It is important now that the car is fast and we can build things around it.
20. 05. 2018 15:23
20. 05. 2018 16:23 CET
14 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): There were some tricky corners towards the end, I made a small mistake on a first gear corner and lost a bit of time - maybe one or two seconds.
20. 05. 2018 15:23
20. 05. 2018 16:23 CET
14 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I didn't know with the tyres in the abrasive parts so I pushed a bit more, I lost a bit too much in the first stage when I wasn't pushing as hard. I knew the last 30% of the stage was humid and then all of a sudden there was standing water.
20. 05. 2018 15:23
20. 05. 2018 16:23 CET
14 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): The grip was very low most of the way through and towards the end there were some corners which were like ice - I think I just about judged corners in time! I think we could have gone softer on the tyres but it's difficult when it's dry in the previous stage.
20. 05. 2018 15:23
20. 05. 2018 16:23 CET
14 flash info (16 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I tried to push like hell. In the middle of the stage the hard tyres worked really well. At the end I pushed like hell because it was moving at the rear - some standing water in places.
20. 05. 2018 15:22
20. 05. 2018 16:22 CET
14 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): It is hard to be faster than him, but hard tyres in the mud meant no grip at all. I think we were better in the mid-section when it was a bit drier.
20. 05. 2018 15:22
20. 05. 2018 16:22 CET
14 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It's really nice to be in the fight with a fellow Finn. Okay I don't know how this went, but it changed - damp like this, 200kph and under braking, it is quite a surprise.
20. 05. 2018 15:22
20. 05. 2018 16:22 CET
14 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I was caught out by the rain, it was raining in the beginning - very slippery on the hard tyres. On the bright gravel I couldn't see it was getting slippery.
20. 05. 2018 15:22
20. 05. 2018 16:22 CET

13 flash info (42 - Lefebvre Stéphane / Moreau Gabin): I want to push to have a good gap tonight, I want to have a clean stage but I don't think the gap to Greensmith on this stage is not enough.
20. 05. 2018 15:16
20. 05. 2018 16:16 CET
13 flash info (37 - Pieniążek Łukasz / Mazur Przemysław): We struggled on the first loop, we chose the wrong tyres. We have to keep pushing, the gap is not so big.
20. 05. 2018 15:16
20. 05. 2018 16:16 CET
13 flash info (32 - Greensmith Gus / Parry Craig): It felt horrible losing time this morning, we love and hate this sport at the same time. I'm pretty sure I can get back on the podium so I'm going to push hard and see what we can do.
20. 05. 2018 15:15
20. 05. 2018 16:15 CET
13 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): We're a bit optimistic with the hard tyre, obviously at this stage it would have been working better without the rain. It wasn't the greatest stage for myself but we learnt something.
20. 05. 2018 15:15
20. 05. 2018 16:15 CET
13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We've been talking in the service, they asked me how I'll be going and I told them I'm starting like this and they've done the same.

13 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): You always want to fight but it is how it is at the moment. We couldn't have done too much more.
20. 05. 2018 15:15
20. 05. 2018 16:15 CET
13 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I don't know if harder tyres would have been better, I took it carefully under braking as it is quite rough.
20. 05. 2018 15:14
20. 05. 2018 16:14 CET
13 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was a good run, I was happy with the stage. Maybe a bit aggressive in places but we'll be looking ahead to the next ones.
20. 05. 2018 15:14
20. 05. 2018 16:14 CET
13 flash info (16 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): The car started to move on the rear a lot and I don't know if it is with hard tyres they are better at the end. I am surprised at the time, I thought it would be better.
20. 05. 2018 15:14
20. 05. 2018 16:14 CET
13 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): That's rallying when we're driving on the limit! There's not so many places where we can gain a lot of time, the road is clearing so it is benefitting the cars behind but we are on the limit.
20. 05. 2018 15:14
20. 05. 2018 16:14 CET
13 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): For sure our tyre choice for this one wasn't the best so I decided to give it everything. A bit of time isn't enough but I'm giving it my all.
20. 05. 2018 15:13
20. 05. 2018 16:13 CET
13 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): The soft would help to get some more traction, but hopefully the hard will benefit us in the later stages.

20. 05. 2018 16:13 CET

12 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We made some small changes before the stage and obviously it is quite slippy in this one so I decided to push hard. It seems like the time is good. It is going to be rough this afternoon.
20. 05. 2018 15:03
20. 05. 2018 16:03 CET
12 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Everything is fine but I could tell it wasn't going so well but didn't know what to do to change it. Didn't get any traction in the second half of that one.
20. 05. 2018 15:03
20. 05. 2018 16:03 CET
12 flash info (16 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I do my best and I push in a good way. For me the stage was clean, I had a feeling like I would do well but Lappi is quite fast.
20. 05. 2018 15:03
20. 05. 2018 16:03 CET
12 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): No real issues, just a few times late on the throttle but it has quite a big effect. It is so sandy that it isn't cleaning after one car or two cars.
20. 05. 2018 15:03
20. 05. 2018 16:03 CET
12 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Everything is achievable, but there is a long afternoon coming up. We were maybe 15sec shy of the podium before this one but we'll see what happens. It is very sandy, but is the same for everyone I guess.
20. 05. 2018 15:02
20. 05. 2018 16:02 CET
12 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It is not easy to catch Lappi, every car on the road is helping and to be honest I don't want to risk anything. I'm just here to finish, I'm increasing my speed but he's increasing his as well.

11 flash info (32 - Greensmith Gus / Parry Craig): Just a puncture on the left rear, but it debeaded another tyre in the process so we just need to drive slowly to make sure it doesn’t come off the rim.
20. 05. 2018 14:59
20. 05. 2018 15:59 CET
11 flash info (7 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It is good, on this stage I took it a little more careful because there are loose stones. I hit one at one point but thankfully it doesn't do too much damage. After yesterday they are scaring us a bit more than usual.
20. 05. 2018 14:59
20. 05. 2018 15:59 CET
11 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): There is no objective, just go ahead until tomorrow. Not using it as a test as we have nothing to test.
20. 05. 2018 14:59
20. 05. 2018 15:59 CET
11 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Finding a rhythm is okay, we are driving and it is important to finish, but we can't do much because the engine is so down on power.
20. 05. 2018 14:59
20. 05. 2018 15:59 CET
11 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Everything is ok, I was a bit too careful on the tyres. It is quite abrasive and we need them for the next stage.
20. 05. 2018 14:58
20. 05. 2018 15:58 CET
11 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was a good run in the stage actually, I enjoyed the driving and the car was all good. The smooth roads help, it was so difficult yesterday with the conditions we had.
20. 05. 2018 14:58
20. 05. 2018 15:58 CET
11 flash info (16 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I think the suspension was really soft after the first loop so we made a few minor changes and it is getting better now.
20. 05. 2018 14:58
20. 05. 2018 15:58 CET
11 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Markkula Mikko): I'd have liked a bit more of a gap over Lappi. The surface was quite aggressive so there was a bit of movement.
20. 05. 2018 14:58
20. 05. 2018 15:58 CET
11 flash info (9 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): For sure it will be tight with Teemu. I have a good feeling, good rhythm, I don't want to take any risks. There is more grip today than there was yesterday.
20. 05. 2018 14:57
20. 05. 2018 15:57 CET
11 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It's feeling quite constant so that is good, we're just trying to enjoy it and learn the car - increasing speed as the day goes on. Kris is a very good benchmark and I'm glad to be faster than him.
20. 05. 2018 14:57
20. 05. 2018 15:57 CET
11 flash info (10 - Meeke Kris / Nagle Paul): Road position, the first three-four cars there is a lot of sweeping. These stages last year were horrible but today I have a nice feeling - that's important.
20. 05. 2018 14:50
20. 05. 2018 15:50 CET
11 flash info (11 - Breen Craig / Martin Scott): It's a bit like Monte, opening the road. The car feels really nice and the rhythm is good, just a shame I'm first on the road really.

20. 05. 2018 15:49 CET
10 flash info (4 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Driving wise it is ok, but it is lacking in power. It's because of what happened yesterday, we had to make some changes to make it last.
20. 05. 2018 14:48
20. 05. 2018 15:48 CET
10 flash info (5 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): That's enough. It was a good stage, I tried to be careful in places as it is quite slippy in parts. It was ok.
20. 05. 2018 14:48
20. 05. 2018 15:48 CET
10 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): It was quite slippery in places, the car was sliding quite a lot. I would say the grip is less than we had yesterday. Definitely hope I can stay ahead of Dani.

20. 05. 2018 14:54 CET
5 flash info (12 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): It's really amazing, the car felt really good in there. The team explained to me how the buttons are working so I can fiddle with it a bit during the stage. Thanks to them for showing me that. I still know how to drive as well which is nice.

20. 05. 2018 14:53 CET

20. 05. 2018 13:27
20. 05. 2018 14:27 CET
4 flash info (2 - Evans Elfyn / Barritt Daniel): Not so happy with that time, feeling was okay but the car was moving around a lot more. You can only do so much with the grip you've got. We'll have to look to work with what we've got.

The damper is broken but we should be in a better position compared to Argentina because it sounds like it is just the damper. He said it was just a hole he went over and it broke the damper. We’ll have to check the on-board to make sure how it happened.
