#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"It's difficult to accept but okay, it happens. A similar thing maybe happened to Ott yesterday. It's the nature of the sport. I think it happened on a straight piece of road in the middle, a hole of piece or stone that had lifted. I felt it straightaway. Very unexpected. I tried to drive on it to see if we could minimise the time loss but it started to delaminate 6km before the end. At least we have the podium but it's not what I wanted."
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I'm really disappointed for Elfyn, who did a really good job, but I think we deserved it as well. We were pushing all the time. Never give up!"

flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
front right puncture
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"Not easy. I just wanted to finish. I knew I had no chance to do anything in the Power Stage so I didn't risk anything."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"The target was manufacturers' points. We were not so fast in some stages, so couldn't fight for the podium. Anyway, if we can finish like this it's interesting for the championship."
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"I'm really happy for the pace. Still some work to do in the dirty corners but in the end a great result for me."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"In the end let's say it's disappointing, but now at the rally I didn't enjoy at all a couple of years ago we are on the pace. We've collected some points. The fight goes on."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"It was a very difficult weekend. We tried to make it as good as we could. A bit frustrating. We need to be better next time."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"A clean stage, no mistakes. I'm not looking for points - just trying to finish."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"I had a good run but Jari is not my target - there are a lot of quick guys behind. I gave it a go. I couldn't have done much more."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"You can make a good time here if you are taking risks and committed. If I can get one or two points I will be happy. It was okay but I am missing something - like I was all weekend. I now need to get a completely new energy for Argentina."
#22
flagPieniążek Łukasz - Heller Kamil
"We got safely through. We are happy to collect points. We try to improve on the next one."
#28
flagGryazin Nikolay - Fedorov Yaroslav
"I'm really pleased because it was difficult here with overheated tyres and brakes. Now we wait for Andolfi. We'll see. But for sure we are at the finish of this challenge so it's a big celebration."
SS13
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I don't know. The car feels okay, but it's moving a lot. I couldn't go any faster."
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"Okay. We had a good stage. I was pushing. Not perfect everywhere but it was okay."
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"It's been okay. Once again I have a different set-up and hopefully now I know what to do for the Power Stage. You can count on me to try."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"I have a brake problem from the middle of the stage. From there I drive slow."
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"It was a good run for us. I have had a monkey on my shoulder, telling me to calm down and relax and bring the car home. Now I have given him a banana, he's a nice guy and he's letting me drive."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"A good stage, a very fast one. Not perfect notes but we did all we could."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"Just coming safely through, to be honest. Manufacturer points are the target. I would like Power Stage points but I'm not so confident."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"We didn't try to push. Just go through the stage and wait to see what happens. In our position there is nothing more to play for."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"Not a habit I want to get into on Sunday morning. Let's see what we can do, hopefully collect a couple of points in he power stage."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"Beautiful conditions. A very beautiful stage. We took it relaxed because the Power Stage is now more important."
SS12
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"No idea. It felt like a good stage. No idea. All to play for but that's disappointing."
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I tried. Obviously we have a mission not to make a mistake but I had a good feeling with the car. We raised it a bit since this morning and the handling was nicer so I was able to attack."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"Nothing wrong, the other drivers are just faster on the second pass, Ogier was really fast. It's like this."
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"We lost some time. I think the reason is all clear for me..."
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"I had an engine problem, no anti-lag for two or three kms. No anti-lag, then it came back suddenly and I nearly went off because I didn't expect to have the power."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"That's quite an okay time. We were not really pushing. We are here without any dramas. it is good to be here and now we have some nice stages tomorrow."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"It was a bit better. We adjusted the diffs and the feeling was quite correct. A good stage."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"I know that the car has potential, it's just the driver. I need to go to sleep and think about the driving more."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"I enjoyed driving this afternoon. A much stiffer setup seems to work better."
SS11
#35
flagKajetanowicz Kajetan - Szczepaniak Maciej
"The morning was really good but now in this stage we lost power steering a few seconds 5km ago and also before the finish. Let's see about the next stage but 47km without power steering is not possible in Corsica on tarmac."
#22
flagPieniążek Łukasz - Heller Kamil
"Happened somewhere near the middle. Now we change the wheel and continue."
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"That's unlucky for him. Our pace wasn't that great by the look of it anyway. It felt okay, I pushed quite hard but didn't find the rhythm in places. It's a shame for Ott. We still have to fight, there's not such a gap behind. Let's see."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"Puncture. Very strange place. Okay."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"So fast! I tried to do my best. Really high speed in some places. With the Toyotas its a little bit more difficult but we enjoy it."
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"A good drive. Of course some places I could do better but it's my first time here in this car. It's okay."
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"The feeling is better but the times are not good. I cannot say it's a big improvement."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"We are still far away. I am trying my best, for sure. It's frustrating when whatever you do you can't find the speed."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"A bit better I think, but still understeering. We tried to adjust the diff mapping. It's not perfect, but it's okay."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"I haven't been driving very well in this rally. I tried to push more and cut in. My mistake."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"It felt good. I changed the damper set-up, running the car a bit stiffer. I thought it was good but the time seems slow, we'll see."
SS10
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"A good run. No dramas. Trying to be as smooth as possible but still pushing."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"I had a good run, all clean. Still a long way to go. This is not the last stage yet."
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"It was a good stage. A really good one."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"The car is okay, but it was a bit difficult in the forest with this light. Difficult to see the corners in the sunlight through the trees."
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"It was okay. A bit happier with the car. Thinking about how to save the tyres and get the fastest times."
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"A little bit better. We're making changes every service The feeling is getting better, at least in the right direction."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"No difference. I'm on my maximum, for sure."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"We have a lot of understeer now. It is very difficult to drive the car. I lost six seconds compared to the morning. We will try and change something in the set-up but it's really not good."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"Kris was driving really well. It's an interesting stage, it was okay for us."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"Better grip than earlier with more rubber on the road and higher temperatures. A good run."
SS9
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"I didn't start the best. I touched something on the rear after a dirty cut early on and it altered the handling ever so slightly. No big deal but it didn't help. We pushed hard. Very difficult to read the grip. We did what we could."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"This was a tricky stage and a new stage. I'm sure nobody is going on the limit but I had a good rhythm and my notes were quite okay so no worries."
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"Not the stage I was looking for, and I don't know why to be honest. It was very tricky and there was a lot of gravel. Maybe I took it too careful."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"Good, but I'm surprised when I do a good time and also when I do a bad time. It'd hard to know how to drive. It's weird. Some places we are not on the limit and it is better. Anyway, we are happy with our time - that's the most important thing."
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"It was an okay stage for us. Not a good rhythm, and too careful in cutting places. I was a bit too calm."
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"I don't know how the guys behind will do but honestly I don't understand the time. My driving is not different to normal but the pace is not there. We need to find something."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"It's not possible to enjoy this stage. This was the most horrible so far."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"I understeered in a tightening corner. I couldn't turn, went into a ditch and lost time turning around. The car is okay."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"Quite okay. Different surfaces and surprisingly slippery, with gravel at the end. Generally okay."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"Incredibly slippery surface in places, some damp sections caught me by surprise. A huge challenge. The set up with the dampers wasn't perfect, the car is rolling about."
SS8
#32
flagCamilli Eric - Buresi François-Xavier
"I really enjoy this rally. It's going very well and I hope it will stay like that. We focus and continue."
#22
flagPieniążek Łukasz - Heller Kamil
"This stage is really nice fast and flowing. Sliding a lot. Good fun."
#21
flagRovanperä Kalle - Halttunen Jonne
"It's much better. In the stage before this, comparing to the guys on new notes, it was quite good. Now I just need to learn how to drive faster!"
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"Not the perfect run, but not that bad either. You can really harm you tyres here, so we were neat and tidy, let's see."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"We need to be on the limit, we need to push. There is no holding back. I'm enjoying the fight. The car is really good."
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"It was okay but a little bit of understeer. I enjoyed this stage, it's the first time we enjoyed this one - last year it was a disaster."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"Not a bad time. I'm trying to be clean. It's more like a circuit road here and the car was good. The speed you can carry in the corners is unbelievable."
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"We were able to change something with the... It's better now."
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"Yes, no problem. We have done some changes since yesterday but obviously we are not really getting faster."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"It felt even more horrible than the first one. The time is a surprise, or the first runners have been bad as well, i don't know. It was not good at all. I don't have enough grip at the front. I could go much faster but I can't trust. That's it. We have tried many, many things here but we just don't find a solution."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"This is a very fast and wide stage. The feeling is okay, but maybe not so good in this type of stage. Not our favourite place with this car but it's okay, not so bad."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"I knew I would lose time, I had a good rhythm but I did this stage only once last year before I crashed and still my notes were not precise enough. I was braking far too much in the corners."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"This one is like a race circuit, a different character to the rest. I wasn't so good here last year so I made some subtle changes. I'm just exploring today."
SS7
#75
flagWilliams Tom - Hall Phil
changed a wheel
#22
flagPieniążek Łukasz - Heller Kamil
"Really difficult, narrow and tricky. I wasn't confident enough."
#21
flagRovanperä Kalle - Halttunen Jonne
"The set-up is a bit better now and it starts to feel good. Now I have to learn how to drive here, it's a very difficult rally, hopefully we can be at better speed today."
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"A good run but there were a few hesitations in a few areas - not as good as it could have been."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"It's a good battle. I think it will be tight today so we need to do well."
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"Towards the end I struggled a bit, sliding too much and a bit too careful on the brakes. The car feels good, a bit of movement but it gives us the grip we need."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"The feeling in the car is good but the time is not so nice. Not fast enough in some places but it's hard to understand why."
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"A terrible stage for us. We need to try and fix things."
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"We made a lot of changes, and in that way it's a bit better but the speed is not there yet."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"Quite similar. Maybe slightly better but not enough for sure."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"At the moment things are working well. I tried to push. We adjusted the set-up yesterday and I am feeling well with the car. I'm trying to be awake in the morning - we did a good stage."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"Nothing special. I crashed on this stage last year so I didn't do the second part properly and my pace notes needed a bit of fine tuning."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"I was annoyed with myself yesterday, I make a mistake in the recce which caused the problem. I have to improve. I have to dig deeper and deeper if I want to challenge for a championship. I'll learn."
SS6
#21
flagRovanperä Kalle - Halttunen Jonne
"We made some set-up changes and it is now quite good. Now it's much more enjoyable to drive."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"I try to do my best. This morning I didn't understand the times because I was driving normal. Now I'm trying and it's difficult, the speed is not there."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"A disappointing day. I was expecting a bit more. One bad driving stage, and then the puncture. That one stage [Valinco] has been causing problems for us, otherwise not so bad."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"It's going better and better but for sure we lost a lot in the morning. Now I am quite confident in the car."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"I've tried to do my best all day but the pace is not there. We are too slow all the time. It's very frustrating, but that's how it is."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"I had a conversation with [co-driver] Seb in stage and he said hopefully Elfyn would have a three-minute gap. It doesn't look like the organisers gave it. I wasn't expecting him to come. I've sorry for Elfyn."
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"I know Kris well, he wouldn't do that intentionally. I hope it gets resolved in the way it should."
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"It was okay. I felt good in the car but I'm missing a bit of grip to go faster. Some corners I hesitate a bit. A big attack, for sure. I would like to go faster."
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"I have to find a solution to make this car turning. The car is not turning and it has been a very difficult day."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"A very consistent day. For the second loop we had to be a bit careful - we had a damper issue at the front. But in the end it didn't change the behaviour too much."
SS5
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"I was not really pushing on this one. Trying to keep similar good pace as before and maybe improve a bit."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"After 2km we got a slow puncture. There was gravel at the start and perhaps we got a sharp stone in the tread. Nothing special, just one of those unfortunate things."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"The feeling is okay, but it's not fast. I can't tell you why. I'm driving as fast as I can."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"No problem. It was okay. No mistakes. I tried to push. The feeling with the car is okay."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"I'm on my limit and that's it. We are crazy slow."
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"A much, much better run. Everything is working really well."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
damaged rear right suspension
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"This car cannot be any faster at the moment. There is a lot of understeer and no way to be better. I'm not even sure we can do anything in service."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"A clean run, not pushing to the limit yet but going at a good rhythm."
SS4
#21
flagRovanperä Kalle - Halttunen Jonne
"It's not been a great day for us so far, car is understeering a lot so we need to find some solution to it for tomorrow but my driving is getting better. Still a good learning experience"
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"The feeling with the car is good. I should push but at the same time I should drive carefully and finish the rally."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"I tried to drive it like before. It went well but I think the others his morning were a bit slow."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"My notes have not been good but this was okay. Getting better."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"No mistakes, it was okay. The stage is quite clean."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"Too slow. I did a good stage but I guess the R5s will be faster."
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"A pretty good run. Neat and tidy but still fairly on it."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
What happened earlier has gone. I'm focused now on my driving. The car feels good. The gap is big but I'll nibble away."
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"Looks like I didn't have the feeling. We're going to see in the next stage."
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"Better than this morning but still not fantastic."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"Quite a bit more gravel in places now but generally still nice. I'm quite happy."
SS3
#22
flagPieniążek Łukasz - Heller Kamil
"After the puncture earlier we tried to improve but it's hard. I cannot find good confidence to push."
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"A pretty okay morning. Difficult to manage the driving. An okay time here. I could go faster but only with higher risk."
#6
flagSordo Dani - del Barrio Carlos
"I didn't have a really good time now. I have a good feeling in the car but the road is very dirty with gravel."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"The pace notes are not good enough, they are too slow and I'm not driving fast enough. I tried to use notes from 2015 and you can see how they worked. Incredible."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"The car felt okay. The feeling is quite good now. Okay, we've lost a lot of time but we are still here driving."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"I spun on a hairpin. The feeling is actually okay in the car but not perfect from me. Now it's getting a bit better but yeah, the first time for me to make such a tight hairpin and I couldn't get it."
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"A good clean run, nice and tidy. All okay."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"We have a job to do to try and get back as much time as possible."
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"The feeling is a little bit better but my pace notes are sometimes too slow sometimes too fast. I don't want to take risks."
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"Not the start we were hoping for. I have been struggling a lot with the car this morning. We made some changes and now it feels better."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"Not a very good morning but consistent. No issues but I believe my rhythm can improve. Generally the car is working well, I just need to understand these new stages. Generally I'm quite happy."
SS2
#22
flagPieniążek Łukasz - Heller Kamil
"This one was quite okay, we managed to fix the car on the road section. I'm not so happy with my notes - too slow for these conditions."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"I don't understand. I felt pretty good but the time is not. Very, very strange. I didn't expect to be that slow. Perhaps the notes were too cautious."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"The car is okay after we tried to repair, but the mistake in the first stage means that's it now. We are far away."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"It felt a little bit better but the time is really bad. I have no chance to go any faster. It's not looking so good."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"I think I make a mistake on the recce - I had 'keep in' in my notes, I hit something and punctured immediately. We'll try our best to fight back."
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"The profile of this stage was different [to the first] I could feel the limit of the car but I struggled with the front."
SS1
#1
flagOgier Sébastien - Ingrassia Julien
"I spun in a hairpin and struggled to find reverse. I think the car is okay, there shouldn't be much damage."
#3
flagSuninen Teemu - Salminen Marko
"Not a great feeling. Struggling to carry the speed through some sections."
#10
flagLatvala Jari-Matti - Anttila Miikka
"I didn't get held up by Seb - but I was disturbed by the tyre marks I saw in the road."
#19
flagLoeb Sébastien - Elena Daniel
"I slid wide into a corner and hit a kerb. It broke the suspension I think."
#4
flagLappi Esapekka - Ferm Janne
"The feeling is quite okay, but I'm not fully happy. We will try to adjust something. It's not crazy bad but it can be better and we can get better times."
#33
flagEvans Elfyn - Martin Scott
"It was good. Not perfect but good."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
"I don't know how it happened, something caught me in the corner, completely unseen."
#5
flagMeeke Kris - Marshall Sebastian
front left puncture
#11
flagNeuville Thierry - Gilsoul Nicolas
"I'm surprised. I don't like the [car's] behaviour. I am pretty much on the edge and not 100 per cent comfortable."
#8
flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin
"Car is not so bad. A new stage, we made new notes and they were too slow in places. We came across some cows in the road."
