SS3Sherwood I26.59 km12:58.44.123.00.2728:25.55.
"Maybe I was not smart enough on the previous stage when I tried to rebalance the set-up after losing the diffuser. This time I made settings the other way, to give a lot more grip to the rear, and it was much more driveable."

SS5Eastbank II18.92 km9:56.59.114.20.4143:39.57.
"It was quite a slippery road, not so easy, and no aero again, so quite challenging." How does the lack of aero make the car behave? "We are driving looking through the side windows."
