"First, when you come to a new event it's always a bit unexpected. This weekend, we came to the home country of Toyota and we expected them to be very strong. The pressure was there and we knew it was going to be very complicated to take the fight. In the end we did a very good weekend - nothing too much, only one mistake yesterday. It's an amazing place - definitely one of the best places to have a winter rally, especially yesterday, it was so demanding. I think to come back here a second time would be much more enjoyable, especially when you know where you are going!"
"For sure, this weekend I wanted to fight for the top place and I made a mistake and we were not on the optimal pace. I was pushing the whole weekend, maximum all the time. It was a great weekend from my side and Jonne's side, we did everything we could and we are happy to get P2 here.
"I had a good stage, but obviously Craig did as well! I lost the front tyres a little towards the end. I am satisfied with my weekend, especially considering some of our issues. We can't forget that we started third on the road."
"I didn't think it was great - I just tried to clean up bits and pieces where I was untidy before. I have to say thanks to the engineers, they gave me some info on bits I was doing wrong. It was really hard mentally for me this weekend. After delivering so much in Estonia, the goalposts moved suddenly and you just want to deliver a win."
"It seemed quite slippery towards the end. I felt like I had a good clean run - that's a good time from Seb! It's not been the weekend we wanted. Okay, good speed at times but not what we wanted for sure."
"I don't know when I am going to drive it next so I thought I will just go for it. I lost sixth place - I am sorry, but I tried!"
"For me, when conditions are consistent I feel quite confident, but if it's like this with a lot of ruts I feel less confident. Okay, I am happy with this weekend and thank you to the team."
"I watched the onboard from my first run and found a few places I could go faster. I really hoped that we did it, but still we are quite a bit behind Ogier."
"Generally the driving was getting a bit better. Some things were improved, but there's still a lot to work on."
"The last section was too much cleaning still, so it won't be enough to make a good time. I couldn't do more than that - that's the way it is, until the next one. It's a beautiful place to rally here. Of course when you're first on the road it's not the same story, but that's the WRC game."
"In the last corner, we have an issue with the engine and I was looking at the dashboard. A difficult weekend."
"This stage was nice - the last part was quite tricky with a lot of ruts. I enjoyed being here again, let's see if we can do some more this year."
“It didn't start very well. We hit the snowbanks and went too early to the corners. Some places went quite right.”
“Morning. I had a big moment in the first corner and lost some confidence. It was one of the best stages ever. The rhythm is fun. Amazing.”
“It was okay. We corrected some pacenotes too much so it’s a bit negative. We’ll watch the videos and hope to make the right corrections now.’’
“Perfect. It’s so nice. It’s f****** good. I wasn’t pushing too much. But it was just awesome. The stage was so flowy. I enjoyed it.’’
“I have a lot of time to catch. I really tried. Otherwise, I couldn’t do so much more than this.’’
“I wasn’t driving well and you can see it in the time. It was very frustrating. Not a nice way to start the day. We’ll try to go better in the Power Stage.
“This is the best thing you can do even without the clothes on. It’s so good fun. So good fun.’’
"What an amazing stage - I wish I could be really flat out! We are so far behind Lappi so we just went in cruise mode."
"I don't know how to describe it for people who haven't driven a rally car. It feels so great and the conditions are so good on the first pass."
"It's easier to just think about the driving and not the gaps. Let's see - the next time through is more important."
"I was not so good in there. It has been quite difficult this weekend - the pace is not what it should be and I am struggling in many places with the car. We will fight back on the last one."
"I don't know To be honest, we did a good stage but my pace notes were a bit slow. It's really tricky to commit to the pace notes so I was maybe a bit careful, but I tried my best."
"I wish I could pay back the guys the right way - they did an amazing job this morning and I didn't deliver for them."
"It's a fast stage, that's for sure. For me, the grip at the start was really surprising and much higher. I was probably a bit too careful at the start, but we adapted and were able to find some good pace."
"I was way too careful in the beginning. In the middle I could get loose and get the feeling again. We just enjoyed it and we will see what we can do in the Power Stage."
"Yeah - a clean run. Conditions are very nice and I enjoyed a lot. In some places I was a bit careful because some snow has changed since the recce. I will push hard in the Power Stage."
"I had a pretty good feeling - a couple of moments but that's it. I am doing my best and that's all I can do."
"Not very good then. I think my pace notes were a long way out for this stage. Sometimes too fast, sometimes too slow, so we need to have a look at them and change them."
"What else can I do? We will give everything we have to try and catch some points, but if we get some [points] it will not be many I think."
"It was nice. The grip was much high than yesterday, I don't know if it's because I was opening the road. The feeling was nice."
"It was a fantastic stage - I didn't have any lines to follow but I enjoyed it. It was not a perfect run for me but I'm happy to be here - it's a shame about yesterday."
“We had a strategy. There is a lot of snow. We planned not to do anything stupid on this last stage.”
“It was a quite okay day for me, nothing special. I made a small mistake. For this stage we tried to get an okay result.’’
“Today it has been a real challenge. This one was really bad for the tyres, I had to slow down a lot because there was no grip and I didn’t want to do any mistakes. We want to catch Eyvind Brynildsen in the front. We need to go fast tomorrow.”
“It is nice, it is just too pretty long for the tyres. After 10 kilometres it became very tricky and challenging. It is the same for everyone. I was too wide on one left turn and stuck for a while. The tyres are pretty done.”
“It’s been a fantastic day, actually every day in a rally car is the best day. We are satisfied with our fourth place in our class at the moment. We are trying to keep up the good pace. In overall it’s a good day.”
“It was okay. I was very careful towards the end. I didn’t need to push because we had a good gap.’’
"It was okay, snow is really tricky and it started snowing. Visibility is not so great. Trying to get back some time but we are losing some. Let's see tomorrow now."
"Wooh! Studs are wobbly! Few too many interactions with the snowbanks in this one. Incredibly fun, amazing to drive this stage at night. Feeling a lot more comfortable."
"We were sideways on the road and couldn't get out just near the finish."
"Very nice, enjoyable day. Very nice conditions. Not so fast, but a lot of learning for us with the new car. Racing in Finland is always great, I like everything. In the summer it's more crazy but in these conditions it's amazing."
"It went to plan. The tyres were quite tired, so it was important to get here without any mistakes."
"Last real corner - we went a little bit too sideways and caught the bank. It's a shame, but it's a weekend to forget."
"It's so frustrating for me. We needed to bring our top game here and I'm not really bringing it today. I tried to use what I know with my little experience but it's not easy for sure."
"I think Thierry made the right choice with the tyres. It was really clever from him, I have to say. Tomorrow we have to push and we will see what we can do."
"It was a really good stage. The car was working really nice and I tried to save my tyres throughout the whole stage. It was a very clean run and the communication is better, but we can still improve."
"The grip was very low towards the end and I was too careful, I didn't take enough chances. That's how it is but we're still here."
"The stage before, we started to have a lot of movement on the tyres. Now we fit some new tyres to the front - I still believe this one was quite okay."
"It's a very tricky corner. I lost my glasses, so I think I drove faster because I couldn't see!"
"It's been tricky this afternoon just getting the car to do what I want it to do. Whatever we tried just didn't seem to work. It's still pretty special."
stuck in the snowbank
"It's nice to drive - I really enjoyed. I made a small mistake on one junction - we had to use the handbrake and hit the rear on the snow bank."
“I should have pushed more. I need to have more speed for the last stage. It has been difficult. I had to do a lot of work. I’m surprised how fast the others drove.”
“It was a very nice and smooth stage. A lot of gravel on the road, we should improve the time. The stage was nice for us.’’
“I hit a snowbank and as a result of that we lost power. We lost a lot on this stage.”
“It’s been a difficult day for sure and it is super-tough for the tyres now. But it’s really fast and enjoyable. We struggled a little bit. We’ve been improving a bit on the second loop. Let’s see what we can do on the last stage.”
“It’s a very good Saturday. It felt like someone had gone and made it very slippery on purpose. Now was more normal than before. Now it was nice again. Let’s try and focus and keep a good rhythm. I don’t have any other choices.”
“I tried on this one. It’s really difficult when you have to take care of the tyres. Lappi is doing a very, very good job, it is hard to keep up.”
“That was okay for us, a clean stage, we tried to save the tyres for the last stage. We have a good gap now. Esapekka [Lappi] is hard to catch. We are happy where we are.’’
"Maybe not the best one for us, could have been better. Still one more to go, we need to see about the tyres and see how we can finish the day."
"Much better feeling in the afternoon, big steps in commitment. Very fun stage, amazing."
"A lot of gravel on the road!"
"I was really worried about the last stage, so I used the worst tyres just so we could get through. The last one will be really important now."
"I'm trying my best - I really tried to do a good job and manage it."
"Maybe the other guys are being clever and saving their tyres! We took a small gamble with the tyres and put them on crossed."
"It went okay. I had a very clean and smooth run trying to save my tyres and it was working well. I am feeling comfortable in the car and our communication is working better as well."
"Who knows - we'll find out in the next one. For sure, there was some movement near the end but it wasn't quite as hard on the tyres as the previous one."
"The conditions are really tricky. There's a clean line, but also a lot of messy snow outside of the lines. It's hard to go flat out and look after the tyres. Let's see what we can do when we get the fresh tyres."
"I am really disappointed that I couldn't be at maximum attack but the time is okay. The next one will be even trickier."
"I was quite angry but okay, it was good learning. It's a shame but that's how it is."
"I didn't really push in this one - I was trying to save my tyres for the last stage."
in snow bank
"The track is quite wide and there's a lot of fresh snow and gravel everywhere, I think it will clean quite a bit."
"For me, it's hard to drive in narrow gravel lines. I don't have the guts to push - I'm getting old!"
Retired after SS6 due engine issues.
“The stage was rough. The tyres may be broken due to the amount of gravel but rally is rally. There was a lot of gravel.”
“There was a lot of gravel and stones on the road. I was afraid that I got a puncture, and because of that I tried to drive carefully. The conditions have changed a lot compared to the morning.”
“It was okay, we didn’t manage to save our tyres well, in the end we didn’t have much grip. We are here to learn and to get some kilometres. We’re having fun.”
“They were quite slippery conditions on the road. We went wide on one corner.”
“This stage was so demanding for the tyres. In the last 10 kilometres I had to slow down so, so much. It was so challenging. Nothing what we can do about it.”
“It was the worst stage so far. I pushed hard. The road is in a good condition but there is gravel in some places. The studs are falling out, but I cannot do anything about it. In the morning the road was a lot better.”
“That was a much better stage, we did another big set-up change. These tyres are dead, we’ll see how the studs are.”
“It was a difficult stage, I was struggling with the front tyres and I was losing a lot of time on the last split. I have no clue how the other guys solved the tyre problem, I couldn’t.”
“The stage was a little bit more rough now, I was struggling to get the car to turn, so it was not that good but we tried our best. We did some changes, but we had tricky conditions as well.”
"It's so difficult - we were just trying to come through as smooth as possible but I'm sure it's very hard for tyre wear."
"I just lost all the studs at the end. I really tried to give it a go, but I've completely killed the front tyres."
"It seems that the balance is better with the car now. The condition is really rough and the front tyres are really worn out. We still have two more to go and I think it's going to be quite a tough loop."
"Maybe I did a little too much on the tyres. I felt them going suddenly and we didn't experience that at all in the testing. We will try to manage for the next stages."
"Very difficult - the grip at the end was so low, I had nothing at all. Tricky."
"The stage was quite messy - a lot of loose snow and no grip at all. I think the cars behind will be coming faster."
"Conditions are very tricky. We got stuck in a snow bank once - luckily we got out quite quickly but we lost some time."
"Difficult! It's the most difificult thing I have ever done in my life. Sideways everywhere, snow bank into snow bank! I tried to take care of my tyres at the beginning but it was very difficult."
"I tried, but I'm afraid the times will improve because it's pretty loose on the second loop. My tyres were really destroyed at the end, so I think it will be a difficult loop for tyres."
"The car is lethal to drive. I took a second spare wheel in it and we're having massive moments for absolutely no reason!"
"I don't know. We have no engine - it's like we are in road mode."
"It's okay - a little rough. We had to drive behind Loubet for some time and he had to wait for a place to let us overtake him."
“The feeling was quite okay. I could not get myself in order to perform. I should try more but the grooves are in the way.”
“It is a very nice and a fast stage. The grip was so good, I was struggling still a bit with the speed. I did not trust the car. It was a really nice and enjoyable stage.”
“This was a really fun one. In the morning loop I made some mistakes again and got stuck for a long time. We’re here to learn.”
“Not easy to have the good speed like the other guys but the stage was really nice. The movement and the pacenotes was really good but for sure we need to improve to find the time. But the rest was okay.”
“It was quite nice and really fast. I was more on the pace. We have a lot of work to do. Let’s see if we can improve.’’
“So far we’ve been better than the others, definitely. The gaps are not huge, well in overall, we have a big lead but still we can’t do any mistake. It’s been very good so far. It was very beautiful [stage], so cool and the conditions are really nice. It’s still icy so you can really trust for the tyres and you don’t need to be scared that the studs will fall down. Very enjoyable.”
“It is such a gorgeous stage, so much fun. We are trying things with the set-up, we will make big changes in the afternoon service. It was one of the most enjoyable stages I have ever driven.’’
“It was such a fast stage, we are not that far away. I am happy, but Lappi is absolutely so fast, in fact we can’t get him. We are competing with Veiby and Fourmaux now.”
“It’s really nice to drive. There was a lot of speed. I’m enjoying it. Let’s see. I’m trying different driving styles
"I tried to push as hard as I could. I have to use the handbrake a bit to commit more, but if I push any more I will be really on the limit. I don't have much more to give."
"The gaps are not huge - we have a big lead, but we can't make any mistakes. It's been very good so far."
"We did some changes before, and the car was behaving very nice. It's so difficult to find the confidence, but if you know this stage then it's one of the best."
"Luckily we got out! For some reason it was really slippery, but we need to improve."
"I struggled to clearly understand the notes. I tried to be focussed and do my job - we did the best we could this morning."
"It was very fast and it's difficult when it's like that - sometimes I felt I was too slow and other times quite a bit too fast. In some places I thought I was too sideways, but at least I was able to carry the speed."
"I was enjoying a lot on the stage. I was happy with what we did - my job is to push my car to the limits and I am really trying to do it."
"This stage was quite tricky. I really didn't like my driving so I will try and improve next time in the dark. On many corners I was not so confident."
"It was a proper stage! That was the best stage today - I pushed hard in many places but then I was too careful in others. The time is not bad, so I'm happy."
"Better than yesterday, but everything we lost yesterday will be difficult to catch. This one was okay, a little bit of snow on the road."
"That felt like the worst stage of the day - I couldn't seem to find a rhythm and I made some mistakes in a few places."
"It's fun. I can not check the times because my times are rubbish, but what can I do?"
“It’s okay, a bit slower than yesterday and more difficult for us. But the car is fantastic though.”
“It was a fast stage. I struggled so much with the grip. I am losing the car in the middle of the corner. It was a bit frustrating. Not so much more I can do.”
“[Georg] Linnamäe is stuck in a snowbank and we lost a bit time in that. He is not totally blocking the road but we still lost some time. I’m not so happy.”
“It is a really fast stage, I pushed as much as I could. The battle will be with Fourmaux.”
“It is a really nice stage to drive, really fast.”
“A beautiful, amazing stage. I really enjoyed that one. I’m trying as hard as I can but I can’t do more than this.”
blocked the route
"It's nice to have a team-mate like Lappi. The stage was okay, in the last part I was losing a bit but I was trying to be a bit more gentle and stay on the line."
"Rallying doesn't really get better than this. We have great conditions, fast roads and big banks! I can't complain."
"I couldn't activate the wipers, so I couldn't see anything! It was good to get out!"
"I thought I did a good stage. I tried to tidy it up in a few places, but honestly, there's not much more I can do."
"There are so many seconds I should be able to take away, but at this stage I can not. I don't have the feeling with the car and it's not doing what I want, so in many places I just lose the car and the line. We have to see what we can do."
"We are missing corners - like sixth gear, long uphills, I am flat out. We can't make a difference. There are no corners to make a difference."
"We have some struggles. We are working on it, but it's not easy - I have to be very concentrated. Not a good stage for us to be honest."
"It's a fast stage, for sure some places could have been better still, but when it's so fast you have to make sure your notes are right first. All okay."
"Quite a nice stage. I was a little bit hesistant on some corners so I lost a few seconds from that. The stages are so amazing, I like them a lot. On the next run I will really push a lot and try to be much faster."
"It was a terrible drive. I couldn't find the confidence on the very fast stuff, it needs such commitment and I was too cautious. I'm learning, so I'm happy."
"I am on the limit - I am happy with my stage. Let's see if the time is good or not."
"That's up there with one of the best stages I have ever driven - it's something really special to drive one of these cars in there. Feeling pretty lucky!"
"This is a very nice stage. I really enjoyed, but it looks like the youngsters are flying! I am enjoying for sure."
"It was amazing. Very nice and enjoyable. I tried to do my best, even if we are first on the road, it is not so bad."
“The stage varies a lot with a lot of grooves. It was better than yesterday. A good stage for the morning but I lost some seconds.”
“The stage was very narrow and slippery in parts but it was okay. I don’t know why it is not going so well. The sun is shining but the helmet visor helps.”
“It was a very difficult and very technical stage. It wasn’t easy to manage the car and the corners, superslippery and narrow and a loss of grip. The day is very beautiful.’’
“It was quite a difficult stage and from the middle of the stage we had no grip. But the first part wasn’t that bad.”
“It was really slippery. I lost a lot of time in the end. We are missing a lot of grip in the car. I don’t know what to do.”
“It went quite well. It wasn't that clean as I thought and I went to the snowbank as well. I lost four or five seconds due to a mistake. I tried to drive calmly and we will have to see how fast the others will go.”
“After the mistake yesterday, I had nothing to lose. It was a difficult stage. These roads are absolutely gorgeous. This will be an interesting loop. I’m enjoying the driving.”
“We have such perfect weather. The stage is perfect. I lost some power towards the end after I hit a snowbank.”
“I didn’t succeed to find the pace in the beginning of the stage. There was a lot of loose snow, we are here to improve and try different things.”
“It was okay, I tried to push as hard as I could. I tried my best.”
"This morning I was pushing quite hard and sometimes hitting the banks. It's difficult, far back the ice is already in some lines and it's changing a lot."
"A lot of mistakes. I was in several snow banks and we should have been left stuck in them. I was expecting the grip to be much higher - I tried to do the best I could but it's not good enough."
"It was not good. We changed the setup from yesterday and it didn't really get any better. I am struggling with the balance, I have a lot of understeer and I can not be on the pace I want."
"It was an okay stage, but I can't understand. We made some changes to the intercom system and it doesn't work - I misheard some words and I am hesitating too much."
"I struggled a bit in places but I can't really put my finger on why. We were hoping for a little bit more."
"We are having good rhythm in slow places, but we can't drive fast on the straights. We are giving everything and it's a good fight with Taka."
"I lost quite a lot. I think I was too careful on the icy sections so that's one reason. It's fine."
"It's amazing. It felt quite good, but I couldn't find the rhythm at the beginning, it was so difficult and narrow. One I found the rhythm it was good."
"I tried to drive as fast as I can. I'm not sure, it was not so easy, but let's see how the times are developing. I can not say - for sure, it's very slippery out there."
"I felt like I was losing a lot of traction on the exit of corners so maybe we will make some tweakes - for me, it felt like a smooth stage."
"The weather is beautiful. The beginning was a little bit difficult to try and find the confidence, but by the end it was better."
"It was nice. I tried to do my best - it was slippery in some parts, but I was trying to stay on the line and we just have to take experience and try to go fast."
Spun and stuck in snow bank
“It was a little bit better than the previous stage because we didn’t have a spin. But the tyres were wearing out. Hopefully tomorrow can be a bit better.”
“It was quite okay but it was rougher than anyone of us expected. Apparently we are leading our class, so I am happy with that.”
“There was a lot of gravel on the road. I tried to save my tyres but drove some sections totally flat out and some quite carefully. It was an okay stage and result in overall is good.”
“It wasn’t very great, we wasted our tyres. In the end we didn’t have a lot of grip. I had to slow down in the end of the stage.”
“There are some problems with the car.”
“This stage kills the tyres so I just tried to drive smart. I can push more, but at the moment I don’t think I need to. We’re having a good speed. Maybe in my opinion but this is one of the most difficult stages of this rally.”
“It is crazy to drive here. We got stuck in the snowbank, but we got out. We’re here to learn, this was the mistake which I did today. But it is so much fun to drive these stages in the night.”
“I was flat out but we lost grip towards the end of the stage.”
“I have to push a bit less because our front tyres are gone. We try to keep the same gap as in the morning. It was quite an okay stage.”
“It was a very difficult stage butt we managed quite well still. We got a bit stuck in the snowbanks and lost time, we gotta push more.”
“I mean I am happy to be back, but the road is very slippery though. The first part was nice, I am really looking for tomorrow.”
"It's very difficult in the dark because you're fully sideways and you don't know what you are going to hit! I am really starting to understand everything now, so it was very enjoyable and great to drive on this stage."
"Shocking. The last 3km were a huge surprise to me. I was missing the front in a few places and I really wasn't trying to protect them because I didn't think I would be losing studs."
"I was on my limit. The rhythm felt quite good, it was difficult conditions to drive clean but still go fast. I'm happy for my driving."
changed a puncture
"I tried to be very nice to the tyres at the beginning and after 10km I thought - the tyres were finished - and I knew there was still 20km to go. In the end it was just handbrake. I tried to be as nice as possible, but it was difficult, it's just such a hard surface."
"Pretty god damn good! In the dark, it's just relying on the notes and it was much better than the first one. We gave away so much time on the first stage which was disappointing, but at least it's good now."
"It's very challenging. On a lot of crests you can not see ahead, which makes it more scary for you! At the end of the stage we had a puncture so I had to slow down. We survived this tricky stage so I am happy!"
"Not good. The stage is in really bad condition with a lot of gravel, so my front tyres are completely gone and I lost a lot of time at the end. If somebody can manage their tyres really good, they will be really quick."
"In the conditions, I am quite satisfied. I had a lot of understeer towards the end and I thought I had a puncture so I took a lot of speed off."
"Not easy, especially towards the end with a lot of loose snow. It was often quite difficult to get the car turned in, but we tried."
"It's a different story but the time difference will be the same. I did what I could but it was quite difficult. We'll see what we can do tomororw, but it looks like we will be quite far away already."
“At one cross-roads I was slowing down went too far into the junction. There were no further problems but it was slippery.”
“The stage was in a bad condition because there was holes in the road. We must see what we do with the car.”
It was very difficult and we did not succeed as we wanted to. I was too nervous but I will try to relax and make a better time later.”
“It was difficult because the feeling on the first part was nice but in the second part there was a lot of gravel. But a very nice stage.”
“We missed a junction. We also hit a bank and spun on the stage and lost time.”
“It was fine, completely different from the shakedown, super-tricky. A lot of loose snow. I tried to drive quite safely in the grooves.”
“We’ve got some weird sound coming from the front brakes. I had a good rhythm in the beginning, then we fell off a bit.”
“It feels so great to be here and I’m really happy for my time. It’s the best thing you can do with the clothing on.’’
“It was really nice stage. It was very good and enjoyable. We need to improve the time.’’
“It was okay, my tyres were going off towards the end. But it was a clean stage with no other issues.”
"Throttle issue from the start of SS1, but pushing on for the next stage!"
"It's not so bad - we will see! I was very careful in some parts with the the tyres. It's better than the ice in Monte!"
"It's very tricky and my front tyres are finished! Not so good, but very enjoyable anyway. I had to stop and reverse and lost around 10sec, but okay, I am learning!"
"In this big boys game you have to be on it from the first pass but I was way too slow."
"Quite nice conditions - I haven't seen better conditions than we are having now."
"It's hard to say it's perfect, there is still quite a lot of understeer. It's a very demanding stage and the conditions were nice. For sure it's enjoyable, but it's only the first stage and there's a long way to go."
"It was really enjoyable. Some places I had a good rhythm but then in others I wouldn't. I was hoping for a bit better than that, we'll try and do better."
"Grip is getting worse at the end. Some corners I had very good grip - it's very difficult to judge."
"I was stuck in the snow bank for a while. I just came into a junction and I just went wide and hit the rear. The time is not that bad, but we can not have mistakes like that again."
"There is a lot of cleaning and a lot of fresh snow. I was already getting some benefit from the lines. We were looking to find a good rhythm and it didn't work all the time. It won't be enough for the guys behind, that's for sure."
"The grip deteriorated and got more loose towards the end. You feel like in some places you can go faster, but in other places it's naturally more on the limit. It's difficult to find the balance in these conditions."
"It was quite soft conditions with the snow. Unfortunately I don't think I will have a great time. I am happy with my driving - I drove much better than this morning on the shakedown."
