16. 06. 2019 16:45 CET 19 retired (75 - Williams Tom / Hall Phil): retired after SS 19
16. 06. 2019 13:31 CET 19 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): It's unbelievable. I don't have words to describe this. Even with Tanak's mistake, it's amazing to win. I'm sorry for Ott.
16. 06. 2019 13:30 CET 19 (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): problems with power steering
16. 06. 2019 13:30 CET 19 (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): stuck in hairpin
16. 06. 2019 13:29 CET 19 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): It was a good rally. It looks like the cooperation is really good now.
16. 06. 2019 13:29 CET 19 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): The car was bouncing everywhere. Difficult. Really disappointed with that.
16. 06. 2019 13:29 CET 19 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It was a big push - we gave it everything.
16. 06. 2019 13:29 CET 19 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We pushed as hard as we can but in the ruts the car just went straight. I struggled all weekend with the handling. We will see if we can take some points away from the Power Stage. Not a great weekend.
16. 06. 2019 13:28 CET 19 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Not really satisfied. Again, a bad result but at least we are on the finish.
16. 06. 2019 13:28 CET 19 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): I quite enjoyed yesterday afternoon but after the issues, that was it.
16. 06. 2019 13:28 CET 19 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's been a tough weekend for us. I was hoping for a lot more from this rally. It is what it is and we need to look forward and keep fighting.
16. 06. 2019 13:27 CET 19 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's not a positive weekend for us but that's motorsport, we have to accept it. We will come back in Finland and try to fight back.
16. 06. 2019 13:27 CET 19 flash info (49 - Loubet Pierre-Louis / Landais Vincent): It was a very difficult morning for us because we had a problem with the diff. We are happy to be at the end.
16. 06. 2019 13:27 CET 19 flash info (21 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): I think we deserved to win but that's how it is. We have been faster than anybody else by minutes so that's positive.
16. 06. 2019 13:26 CET 19 flash info (23 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It's really great - congratulations to the team because they prepared a really perfect car again.
16. 06. 2019 13:26 CET 19 flash info (22 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): This is one of the hardest events that I have done. There was really good things that we learned about our driving, pacenotes and also the car. Thanks to the team - great job.

16. 06. 2019 13:53 CET 18 retired (145 - Biondi Sergio / Arguello Gaston): retired in SS 18
16. 06. 2019 13:52 CET 18 retired (69 - Hänninen Juho / Tuominen Tomi): retired after SS 18
16. 06. 2019 13:25 CET 18 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): The priority is to get to the end.
16. 06. 2019 13:25 CET 18 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): It was a little bit tight with Suninen because this morning I was a little bit slow. When you drive like this it is very difficult to not make a mistake. It's not finished yet.
16. 06. 2019 13:25 CET 18 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): When we are not flat out it's easy to make mistake. It was just a slow corner but we only lost a few seconds. It's in control.
16. 06. 2019 13:24 CET 18 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): Mikkelsen is obviously trying pretty hard. We had a good enough run in there so no drama.
16. 06. 2019 13:24 CET 18 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We had a good stage - we can always go faster but that was a good run.
16. 06. 2019 13:24 CET 18 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): We are in a position where it is not necessary to push so it's not really enjoyable to drive.
16. 06. 2019 13:23 CET 18 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We need to try but it looks quite complicated first on the road.
16. 06. 2019 13:23 CET 18 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): It was okay. I had a better rhythm. It's not so much about saving the tyres for the Power Stage because I don't think we will be able to fight with our road position.
16. 06. 2019 13:23 CET 18 flash info (69 - Hänninen Juho / Tuominen Tomi): For sure, it is not so easy to test during the rally but we confirmed something for sure. I think we will go back to service now because the last one is so rough.
16. 06. 2019 13:23 CET 18 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): The conditions were okay but I drove very slowly. I was saving tyres for the Power Stage.
16. 06. 2019 13:53 CET 17 retired (132 - Leoni Gianluca / Tocco Nicola): retired after SS 17
16. 06. 2019 13:52 CET 17 retired (77 - Johnston Sean / Kihurani Alex): retired after SS 17
16. 06. 2019 13:22 CET 17 (24 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): damaged wheel
16. 06. 2019 13:22 CET 17 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It's difficult in these conditions - it's never enjoyable when you have a big gap to manage. It needs a lot of focus.
16. 06. 2019 13:22 CET 17 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I am enjoying it a lot. It was difficult to keep the car on the road and not to make any mistakes - it's not easy.
16. 06. 2019 13:21 CET 17 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): I need to drive safely and bring the car home.
16. 06. 2019 13:21 CET 17 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): I didn't take it too easy but I didn't take any risks either. A couple of little issues getting around the hairpins but otherwise all okay.
16. 06. 2019 13:21 CET 17 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It will be difficult - let's keep the pressure and we will see.
16. 06. 2019 13:20 CET 17 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Today we are here to enjoy and we can focus on the Power Stage now.
16. 06. 2019 13:20 CET 17 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): We will just drive in a similar way to the rest of the rally. Everything is fine.
16. 06. 2019 13:20 CET 17 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): We know it is going to be tough so we are here and we are going to try.
16. 06. 2019 13:19 CET 17 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): I'm just driving through today - I haven't done this stage before so there is no point risking anything. I'm just going to take as many manufacturer points for the team as I can.
16. 06. 2019 13:18 CET 17 flash info (69 - Hänninen Juho / Tuominen Tomi): It's like driving on the beach, in the last part especially.
16. 06. 2019 13:51 CET 16 retired (142 - Someda Pietro / Angi Simone): accident in SS 16
16. 06. 2019 13:51 CET 16 retired (136 - Covi Carlo / Campesan Giorgio): retired in SS 16
16. 06. 2019 13:50 CET 16 retired (118 - Campagnoli Gabriele / Arena Nicola): retired before SS 16
16. 06. 2019 13:50 CET 16 retired (98 - Dettori Giuseppe / Pisano Carlo): retired before SS 16
16. 06. 2019 13:19 CET 16 retired (41 - Katsuta Takamoto / Barritt Daniel): fire after SS 16
16. 06. 2019 13:19 CET 16 retired (51 - Solans Nil / Martí Marc): accident in SS 16
16. 06. 2019 13:18 CET 16 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We really tried to save the tyres but we didn't know what time the other guys would. It seems like we were quite okay so we can save the tyres a little bit more.
16. 06. 2019 13:18 CET 16 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): It was okay - I don't like this stage a lot so I took it a little bit carefully.
16. 06. 2019 13:17 CET 16 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): That stage was really difficult with all of the narrow places - if you take risks you can make up time.
16. 06. 2019 13:17 CET 16 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): It's all good - it was a clean enough run so we're happy with that.
16. 06. 2019 13:17 CET 16 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We had a clean run - I could go a bit faster but then it's starting to be very hairy. Everyone knows these stages pretty well so it's hard to make a huge difference, but we will try.
16. 06. 2019 13:16 CET 16 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): The plan is to enjoy the day - I still have a good feeling. We need to keep the gap to Lappi but it looks okay so now we will save our tyres.
16. 06. 2019 13:16 CET 16 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It's okay - not so much to do today so it is a bit boring.
16. 06. 2019 13:16 CET 16 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): There's no chance of a Power Stage win - I'm just driving through today to take the points and then we can move on to Finland.
16. 06. 2019 13:15 CET 16 flash info (69 - Hänninen Juho / Tuominen Tomi): Nothing special - a nice stage and the car felt quite okay. Medium tyres were the right choice for today.
16. 06. 2019 13:15 CET 16 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): In some places it looked like there was nobody on the road. I tried to come with a good rhythm and keep some speed up. Okay, there is no fight for me but I want to get in the rhythm this morning.
16. 06. 2019 13:15 CET 16 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's going to be tough opening the road in the power stage so at least we saved our tyres.
16. 06. 2019 00:06 CET 15 retired (140 - Pedala' Massimiliano / Pollini Cristian): retired after SS 15
16. 06. 2019 00:06 CET 15 retired (69 - Hänninen Juho / Tuominen Tomi): retired after SS 15
16. 06. 2019 00:05 CET 15 retired (96 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Ettel Bernhard): retired after SS 15
15. 06. 2019 18:57 CET 15 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): Today was good - I was a bit too careful here because I didn't want to get a puncture. Tomorrow we need to push but it is so difficult to fight with Ott.
15. 06. 2019 18:55 CET 15 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): I'm really pleased and a little bit surprised because I thought I was saving the tyres too much in the beginning.
15. 06. 2019 18:51 CET 15 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Pretty rough - there was no point to push in there.
15. 06. 2019 18:51 CET 15 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I really tried to be careful in here. It's been a very good day. Let's see - the main priority is the rally wins. It was a good fight today, Dani was pushing really hard and he did a really good job.
15. 06. 2019 18:51 CET 15 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I have no tyres at all. I had to take car all of the stage and I was all over the place.
15. 06. 2019 18:51 CET 15 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): I was stuck in Kris's dust for most of the way.
15. 06. 2019 18:50 CET 15 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): A really fast section - I went to brake and the car swapped ends and I realised I had a puncture.
15. 06. 2019 18:50 CET 15 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We were expecting a better day. I feel like the car isn't working as I want it to so obviously not what we were looking for.
15. 06. 2019 18:50 CET 15 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It was okay - it's very rough. The tyres were overheating a lot - I thought that they were gone but the block is still there.
15. 06. 2019 18:42 CET 15 (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): stopped in stage, continue
16. 06. 2019 00:05 CET 13 retired (95 - Marrone Francesco / Fresu Francesco): retired after SS 13
16. 06. 2019 00:05 CET 13 retired (107 - Hoelbling Luca / Fiorini Federico): retired in SS 13
16. 06. 2019 00:04 CET 13 retired (134 - Fourmaux Adrien / Jamoul Renaud): retired in SS 13
15. 06. 2019 18:38 CET 13 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): Still very slippy. My time is not so bad - fighting with Ott is so difficult but we will try our best.
15. 06. 2019 18:38 CET 13 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): I tried to take car of the car and stay in a good rhythm.
15. 06. 2019 18:38 CET 13 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): The plan now is to get the feeling and have some good times this afternoon.
15. 06. 2019 18:38 CET 13 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I am still pushing - the gap is still very small. I'm in the same rhythm as this morning.
15. 06. 2019 18:37 CET 13 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I tried quite hard in that one. The car is feeling a little bit snakey but I think it is just the conditions. We will try again for the next one.
15. 06. 2019 18:37 CET 13 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): It didn't feel like a terrible stage but for sure, maybe a few seconds given away, so we need to stop that from happening.
15. 06. 2019 18:37 CET 13 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): Thierry is not the problem today - obviously Elfyn and Andreas are a bit up the road. I felt good in there so let's see how it goes.
15. 06. 2019 18:37 CET 13 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Conditions are better so I am a more confident with the car. We changed some settings so I need some time to adapt my driving.
15. 06. 2019 18:36 CET 13 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Still slower than the fastest time this morning! Much better.
15. 06. 2019 18:36 CET 13 flash info (69 - Hänninen Juho / Tuominen Tomi): It was much better. For sure some positives.
15. 06. 2019 18:36 CET 13 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I try to keep going with a good rhythm but also to be mindful all the time of the rocks. It's okay.
15. 06. 2019 18:35 CET 13 Stage will be delayed.

15. 06. 2019 12:52 CET 12 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): There was a rock and I hit it straight. I thought it was only a puncture but the arm was damage. We should be able to get back to service.
15. 06. 2019 12:50 CET 12 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): We lost a lot of time here spinning the wheels. I didn't drive very well because I can't even control the car. Let's see - it will be difficult with Ott but I will keep trying.
15. 06. 2019 12:50 CET 12 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): It's been a good pace. I was a bit careful with hard tyres in slippery places. We tried to manage this loop with just four tyres so now we have more to use in the rest of the rally.
15. 06. 2019 12:49 CET 12 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We had to try hard. On this one we had a stall so we lost some time but it's okay. Definitely the right tyre choice.
15. 06. 2019 12:49 CET 12 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): I am not very happy with the stage in general to be honest. I was a bit too careful. For sure, there is more time to come here later.
15. 06. 2019 12:49 CET 12 (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): hit the wall
15. 06. 2019 12:49 CET 12 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): I found it quite slippery at the start to be honest but after 10kms it got better. An okay run.
15. 06. 2019 12:48 CET 12 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): We took a different tyre option. I decided to go with a softer choice but let's see how it goes.
15. 06. 2019 12:48 CET 12 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Another wrong tyre choice this morning. Not the perfect start to the day but for me something is wrong. I can not drive the car and there is no confidence to push. We need to investigate.
15. 06. 2019 12:48 CET 12 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Car is okay. Just a disaster of a tyre choice. It's so slippery all the time and you can not push at all.
15. 06. 2019 12:47 CET 12 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I like this stage - after the tarmac section the tyres were a bit worn.

15. 06. 2019 12:43 CET 10 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): It was really slippery so with hard tyres there was no traction at all. It was difficult to manage the car.
15. 06. 2019 12:43 CET 10 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): The hard tyres were not good for this stage. We still need to do a good job and focus on ourselves.
15. 06. 2019 12:43 CET 10 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): This was really sandy and the next stages have been slippery in the past. I believe everything is okay.
15. 06. 2019 12:42 CET 10 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We will try to push. Very slippery conditions I have to say, so I expect Ott to be fast with his medium tyres. Not a perfect drive but there is more to come.
15. 06. 2019 12:42 CET 10 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): It was an okay stage. We're happy enough.
15. 06. 2019 12:42 CET 10 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): This stage is quite soft. It's not so far to Elfyn and Andreas so that's the target. I have to do the job with little experience so I need to be careful.
15. 06. 2019 12:41 CET 10 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We are going to try. We don't know what will happen behind. The feeling is not so great but I will try to improve and see if we get a better feeling in the car.
15. 06. 2019 12:41 CET 10 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): We need to see. I think there isn't really a chance to climb up by driving.
15. 06. 2019 12:41 CET 10 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): There is no hope of any result so we are just going to drive and get some more experience with the car.
15. 06. 2019 12:40 CET 10 flash info (69 - Hänninen Juho / Tuominen Tomi): With the hard tyres it was quite slippery out there.
15. 06. 2019 12:40 CET 10 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I am really sorry for the team about the mistake I made yesterday with the roll. If you don't try, you don't gain anything. It was just a little incident. The second one was caused by a problem with the car.

14. 06. 2019 18:48 CET 9 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): The front tyre was a little bit damaged. It was an important day today - I prefer to lose some time here and not make any mistakes than to be first on the road tomorrow.
14. 06. 2019 18:47 CET 9 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): The last two stages were positive. We are still here - anything can happen.
14. 06. 2019 18:47 CET 9 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We decided to give it a push - it's not so far up to Elfyn so you never know. The driving has been good - it's just a shame about the tyres this morning. The road order is very important tomorrow.
14. 06. 2019 18:47 CET 9 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): It's been a good day for us. Still - a bit disappointed with the spin this morning.
14. 06. 2019 18:46 CET 9 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): My pace improved in the afternoon. I'm happy with my day and the second pass was better. Quite satisfied - we had a stall and lost six or seven seconds so it's not so bad.
14. 06. 2019 18:46 CET 9 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): Just disappointed with the previous stage. Overall it was okay.
14. 06. 2019 18:46 CET 9 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I have to be very careful. The grip was not too bad but the wrong tyre choice today. Mistakes can happen. We can fight back for a podium position.
14. 06. 2019 18:46 CET 9 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We had to try everything - we've done one stage more than the other guys so the tyres are completely finished. It's a shame that Ogier retired but to be in this position after day one is more than we expected.

14. 06. 2019 17:43 CET 8 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I try to do my job. At the moment it is not bad.
14. 06. 2019 17:43 CET 8 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It was a clean stage. Everything was not correct on the previous stage - you can go and ask the team if you want.
14. 06. 2019 17:42 CET 8 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): That was a clean stage. The most important thing is to keep Kris behind so that we have a good start position tomorrow. It's a shame about this morning's tyre choice - otherwise we would have been right up there.
14. 06. 2019 17:42 CET 8 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): Well - the car is perfect, it goes like a dream. It's such a stupid mistake that I did - I pulled the handbrake too early and we just cut in and rolled. I had my glasses so it's ok.
14. 06. 2019 17:42 CET 8 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): I was driving a bit carefully and trying not to take any risks. I could go faster.
14. 06. 2019 17:41 CET 8 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): As soon as you touch the outside it's like going onto ice! We don't know what time we are going to get for SS7 so let's see.
14. 06. 2019 17:41 CET 8 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): Just couldn't get the car stopped at all. Had to go down the escape road and reverse out.
14. 06. 2019 17:41 CET 8 (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): was out of road
14. 06. 2019 17:40 CET 8 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We have no tyres left - we started the stage on slicks so it was undriveable. We are just trying to survive.
14. 06. 2019 17:40 CET 8 (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): spun
14. 06. 2019 17:40 CET 8 It's starting to rain ever so lightly in the stage.
14. 06. 2019 17:39 CET 7 Stage was cancelled following a medical emergency in the stage involving a spectator.
14. 06. 2019 17:39 CET 7 Stage was interrupted.
14. 06. 2019 17:38 CET 7 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): Pretty good - a lot more grip than this morning. It's close! We've got to keep trying.
14. 06. 2019 17:38 CET 7 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We had a small miscommunication in the previous stage - it can happen to anyone.
14. 06. 2019 17:36 CET 7 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It's a tough job. Some sections are okay but some a really tricky. No issues - we just need to manage.

14. 06. 2019 17:36 CET 6 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): So rough - so difficult to drive. I was careful.
14. 06. 2019 17:36 CET 6 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I used so much strength to get the car back on its wheels - nobody would help. I cut the hairpin too tight.
14. 06. 2019 17:36 CET 6 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): The dust was not an issue. No explanation.
14. 06. 2019 17:35 CET 6 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): It was the right tyre this time. We expect to lose a little bit more on this one but hopefully it will be better in the next stages.
14. 06. 2019 17:35 CET 6 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): That's good. Hopefully we can continue like this.
14. 06. 2019 17:35 CET 6 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): That was better - I was a lot cleaner on the last section.
14. 06. 2019 17:34 CET 6 (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): rolled
14. 06. 2019 17:34 CET 6 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): Very difficult in there and very rough. Happy with the car.
14. 06. 2019 17:34 CET 6 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): We had a misunderstanding in the pacenotes.
14. 06. 2019 17:33 CET 6 (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): was out of road

14. 06. 2019 12:37 CET 5 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): It was good. Let's see how the second pass goes. The tyre wear is unbelievable which is causing the car to move around a lot!
14. 06. 2019 12:37 CET 5 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): It really doesn't help. I don't know what I should do to be honest. There is always some surprise which I don't expect.
14. 06. 2019 12:36 CET 5 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We needed hard tyres for this loop. That was not good.
14. 06. 2019 12:36 CET 5 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I must be happy. It was a difficult one with the tyres. If it wasn't for the stall then I think we would've had a very good time here. All hards for this afternoon!
14. 06. 2019 12:35 CET 5 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): I was a bit too careful. We have service now and let's push more. The first two stages were an an incredible start with Jarmo - we just need to keep it going.
14. 06. 2019 12:35 CET 5 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): I stalled at a hairpin so that cost us four or five seconds. There's another two and a half days to go so let's see!
14. 06. 2019 12:34 CET 5 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): We made some adjustments which helped. In all fairness, it wasn't so bad in here.
14. 06. 2019 12:34 CET 5 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I saw Ogier stopped in the stage. The rally continues for us so we need to stay concentrated. I tried to drive well but my tyres are like slicks - not much we can do, but we didn't lose too much time to Ott.
14. 06. 2019 12:33 CET 5 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I tried everything. This was so so challenging. Okay, we are through and there are no mistakes so we need to carry on.
14. 06. 2019 12:32 CET 5 (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): He touched a rock and broke the front left suspension.

14. 06. 2019 12:30 CET 4 flash info (23 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It's very slippery this year.
14. 06. 2019 12:30 CET 4 flash info (69 - Hänninen Juho / Tuominen Tomi): I know it quite well. Hopefully now we have some time to make changes on the road section!
14. 06. 2019 12:29 CET 4 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): It was really slippy. Unbelievable!
14. 06. 2019 12:29 CET 4 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): My mistake I went wide and touched a bank.
14. 06. 2019 12:28 CET 4 (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): rear puncture
14. 06. 2019 12:28 CET 4 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): I didn't expect it to be so slippery and we had a big moment. Toni Gardemeister rolled at the same corner in 1997 so I know the corner!
14. 06. 2019 12:27 CET 4 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): Some small issues - I spun.
14. 06. 2019 12:27 CET 4 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): This one was okay. It's cleaning a lot so I probably should have been a bit quicker. It's the first time I've mixed tyres with this car so I'm learning that as well.
14. 06. 2019 12:27 CET 4 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): It's not driving right.
14. 06. 2019 12:26 CET 4 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): I don't think we made the right tyre choice. I couldn't match Tanak's pace and the car was moving around a lot. It's part of the game.
14. 06. 2019 12:25 CET 4 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): It feels like a cow on slippy ice! It's difficult but I am doing everything I can.
14. 06. 2019 12:25 CET 4 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's like expected - we are doing everything we can. So far it's a good loop but we are already far away!
14. 06. 2019 17:54 CET 3 retired (121 - Mazzocchi Andrea / Gallotti Silvia): retired after SS 3
14. 06. 2019 17:54 CET 3 retired (132 - Leoni Gianluca / Tocco Nicola): retired after SS 3
14. 06. 2019 12:22 CET 3 flash info (69 - Hänninen Juho / Tuominen Tomi): The road section was too short to make any changes to the car so we will make some changes after this one. There's no need to push but at the same time we need to get a feel for the car.
14. 06. 2019 12:22 CET 3 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): I don't like this stage. I was taking it a little bit carefully in the cuts because I don't know how we punctured the tyre in the last stage.
14. 06. 2019 12:21 CET 3 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): I think we have something not right with the car. Maybe something in the front diff or something because it is very hard to turn.
14. 06. 2019 12:21 CET 3 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): Completely wrong tyre choice. Nothing we can do but the car is everywhere. We have two tyres in the boot which we will use now.
14. 06. 2019 12:20 CET 3 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): It's okay. After the compression there was a very slippery left-hander and we almost overshot. Luckily we managed to keep the engine running and we only lost a few seconds.
14. 06. 2019 12:19 CET 3 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): I don't know this stage at all. Picking my way through - it's so easy to touch a stone inside or out! That's the best I can do with the experience that I have.
14. 06. 2019 12:19 CET 3 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): Something's not quite right on the braking, so we have to investigate.
14. 06. 2019 12:18 CET 3 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Not looking after my tyres but I can't handle the second spare wheel so I am losing time. I am all over the place with the weight and the balance of the car.
14. 06. 2019 12:17 CET 3 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): We are trying our best - we had a good rhythm.
14. 06. 2019 12:16 CET 3 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): Very tricky. The conditions were as we expected!
14. 06. 2019 17:48 CET 2 retired (145 - Biondi Sergio / Arguello Gaston): retired before SS 2
14. 06. 2019 12:18 CET 2 (21 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): hit something hard in the stage and broke the track control arm which forced him to stop. They've got it fixed though, and did eventually make it out of stage.
14. 06. 2019 12:16 CET 2 flash info (42 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): We had a slow puncture, stopped to change the wheel. Lost 54 seconds to fastest.
14. 06. 2019 12:14 CET 2 retired (44 - Andolfi Fabio / Scattolin Simone): accident in SS 2
14. 06. 2019 12:14 CET 2 flash info (23 - Kopecký Jan / Dresler Pavel): It was good for us. We don't want to make any mistakes so we are not pushing 100%. I think the second pass will be quite critical!
14. 06. 2019 12:13 CET 2 flash info (24 - Greensmith Gus / Edmondson Elliott): It was good. I felt like I learned a lot from WRC so I decided to change the notes a little bit. I rewrote the notes completely and they're way too slow, so we've got a lot of work to do in service.
14. 06. 2019 12:12 CET 2 (42 - Veiby Ole Christian / Andersson Jonas): stopped in stage at the 11.7km point
14. 06. 2019 12:12 CET 2 flash info (22 - Rovanperä Kalle / Halttunen Jonne): Really difficult. I don't have any experience of these conditions so it's really hard to know if I am going fast or slow!
14. 06. 2019 12:11 CET 2 (21 - Østberg Mads / Eriksen Torstein): stopped in stage at the 18.9km point
14. 06. 2019 12:11 CET 2 flash info (69 - Hänninen Juho / Tuominen Tomi): We have changed quite a lot in the car so it will take some time to get used to! It was reasonable!
14. 06. 2019 12:10 CET 2 flash info (6 - Sordo Dani / Del Barrio Carlos): There was something in the middle of the road. I had to be careful not to take the tyre off the rim! It's a tricky stage.
14. 06. 2019 12:09 CET 2 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Very tricky. It was just very difficult - I don't really understand!
14. 06. 2019 12:09 CET 2 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We are too soft - it was really hard to drive and the car was moving all over the place.
14. 06. 2019 12:08 CET 2 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): This is the most difficult stage with the hard tyres. Hopefully it will pay off in the next stages.
14. 06. 2019 12:08 CET 2 flash info (3 - Suninen Teemu / Lehtinen Jarmo): It was okay. I was struggling with the tyres and it was really slippy!
14. 06. 2019 12:07 CET 2 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): The narrow section towards the end is so horrible - I've never done it before. The corners were tightening up on me and there was a bit of dust, so I had to take it easy in there.
14. 06. 2019 12:07 CET 2 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): All okay - all good.
14. 06. 2019 12:06 CET 2 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): It was an okay run - not a perfect stage. I struggled with the extra spare wheel because the car is moving a lot. We could have been faster but we are going to handle that.
14. 06. 2019 12:05 CET 2 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): I guess we will compete with each other. It's so loose and really slippery and slow so we're just driving through.
14. 06. 2019 12:05 CET 2 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's incredibly hard. So narrow and technical - nothing I can do!
14. 06. 2019 12:04 CET 2 TYRE CHOICES: Ogier:3x hard compound, 2x medium compound. Lappi/Sordo/Evans/Suninen/Latvala/Hanninen:5x hard compound. Neuville:6x medium compound. Mikkelsen:4x medium compound, 2x hard compound. Meeke/Tanak:2x hard compound, 3x medium compound.

13. 06. 2019 20:01 CET 1 flash info (1 - Ogier Sébastien / Ingrassia Julien): It's better than nothing - every tenth counts! Tomorrow will be a different story starting first. I will push to do everything and hopefully after tomorrow night we can have an okay starting position for the rest of the weekend.
13. 06. 2019 20:01 CET 1 flash info (8 - Tänak Ott / Järveoja Martin): Friday will be important for sure. Second on the road is not so good to start this rally but it's better than Seb. We will try and make the most of it.
13. 06. 2019 20:01 CET 1 flash info (11 - Neuville Thierry / Gilsoul Nicolas): Flat out - it will be difficult conditions tomorrow but there is a good feeling in the car. We will try hard tomorrow and try to get a good road position for Saturday.
13. 06. 2019 20:00 CET 1 flash info (33 - Evans Elfyn / Martin Scott): All ok - it wasn't a bad run to be honest. It will be tough out there but it's the same for everyone.
13. 06. 2019 20:00 CET 1 flash info (5 - Meeke Kris / Marshall Sebastian): We know on a rally like this, anything can happen. I enjoyed driving the car in Portugal - it seemed to work well in the slippery conditions. It's even more slippery here, so I'm confident the car can do it.
13. 06. 2019 20:00 CET 1 flash info (10 - Latvala Jari-Matti / Anttila Miikka): n the watersplash, the brakes glazed completely. We lost some time - it's not the end of the world but it was a bad run.
13. 06. 2019 19:59 CET 1 flash info (89 - Mikkelsen Andreas / Jæger Anders): We had a clean run - we are saving the tyres for the rest of the rally.
13. 06. 2019 19:59 CET 1 flash info (4 - Lappi Esapekka / Ferm Janne): Hopefully we can continue similar things. I'm really looking forward to the rally.
